This Should Make Right-Wingers Happy!

There's a quotation falsely attributed to Thomas Jefferson that right-wingers love to spout: "When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny."

In light of this comment, the American Right should love the fact that a protest in DC's Lafayette Park placed the White House under lockdown.

A lot of right-wingers are freaking out about the current situation, but they have no coherent arguments against civil unrest, because they have no intellectual consistency.

It's going to be a long summer, and not a good one.

I couldn't comment yesterday. I am utterly exhausted and despairing watching from a distance. I can't imagine what it's like to be near all this.

I hope justice will prevail. But there are few reasons to be hopeful.

It's odd, because I am also watching at some remove. I was working a long overnight shift (shift and a half) last night, and it was pouring rain, so I didn't see a single soul all night. The real action is taking place a few miles south of my home, and I'm not about to hop on the subway to get involved in a donnybrook in which outsiders merely add to the confusion about what's really going on.
