Linchpin of Progress

The tea party astroturfing has been an attempt to imitate progressive activism. But when was the last time you saw an act of civil disobedience at a tea party?

No matter how hard they try, corporate shills can't steal this act. Their useful idiots will inevitably wind up stomping a woman's head.

  1. Thanks, Matt. Another thought provoking video essay that reminds us that while corporations run the country, fascists are making decisions for all of us.

    I met an angry veteran in LA who asked me "So, how's fascism treating YOU?!" Good question. Now I ask it of anyone who refuses to talk politics with me. It would also make a great name for a rock band. Or a Soldiers For Peace International essay, maybe (hint, hint).
