Where is the Coverage?

Where the hell is our fine media on this? Not a word for the most part. I found out through a blog site.FDL Up until that point I knew nothing. They’re protesting the treatment of Manning. Even 80 year old Daniel Ellsberg has been arrested. Because he would be an embarrassment, was let go quickly.
The police are in riot gear, dogs,horse’s and automatic weaponry. Just another shameful act of a floundering Government. Some would say Manning is getting what he deserves. I say we are not supposed to even treat our enemy’s like this. Let’s see, we can just shoot Americans suspected of war crimes, and can also hold, torture and anyone we want to for how ever long we want. All without being charged with any crimes. It this what we’ve become, the thing we fight against? Tyrannical Governments!

    Shameful!! Democracy? Look how we’re interfering with Libya? Yet we do this to our protesters? Let’s face it: we live in a democractic dictatorship aka a fascist nation.

    I’m with Marion Young. This is no democracy. The conservatives and their crazy “Patriot” Act have killed democracy in this country. We have let a bunch of paranoid psycopaths have the power to rendition, torture, suspend the writ of habeas corpus, engage in illegal unnecessary wars, wiretap our phones – all in the name of “preserving our freedoms” and “saving democracy.” What a load of bullshit.

    FREE BRADLEY MANNING! NOW!!!!!!

    Full agreement with Jack and Marion. Media too cooperative with the administration, no different than with Bush. See no evil hear no evil speak no evil.

    I think with Obama we got a Patriot Act – rev 2.0 , same stuff plus extra “features”.

    The story of Manning’s treatment would normally make a person furious but since Obama says that Manning is being treated okay, I guess we shouldn’t be concerned, right?

    Yes, ditto ditto ditto ditto… and I am unanimous in that. 🙂 A little good humor helps sometimes. While this is such a serious matter. The good edge to it is how people are standing up to it and demanding to be heard … much like Jack suggests in delegating a People’s Party. It needs to be done! These folks are getting it done…

    **Update down this way… the ‘kids’ who stop by the HBM show who are doing the “Tree Sit” got harassed and threatened by conservative styled poly-bullies out at the site and some of there trees, they had set up were cut down when they took a 12 hr break yesterday. Nasty. And can be dangerous. So, cheers to those who take to the road for it, just remember to be safe! **

    Great post Tim.
