Yet Another Sign

You know that movie Scanners, where that guy's head explodes for some reason or another? I think mine's about to do the same out of rage. That's why I'm trying to phrase this post calmly. Link to PZ.

I'd better be hearing about some candidates denouncing this thing. Until then, this thread is wild. As long as it's on topic, you can say anything.

It looks like Gustav has practically shut down the RNC -- they're talking about confining it to necessary business only, and even checking whether it's legally required for McCain to accept the nomination in person!

The same tactics they're using in St. Paul were used here in Philadelphia when we hosted the RNC in 2000. It definitely crosses party lines, as it was coordinated by our Democrat DA, Lynne Abraham, who almost spoke with glee as she would describe the efforts. We also still had now-Miami police commissioner John Timmoney, who learned at the feet of Rudy Giuliani's commish, Bernie Kerik. Doesn't matter what party you're in: Once you're in power, you'll find ways of getting those who dissent.

Now can we call it fascism, or do we actually need death-camps first?

Yes this is clearly reprehensible. Yes, it is worse in other countries. Getting your arm cut off is worse than just getting it cut. Ideally though, you'd avoid BOTH. The reason this must be demounced as terrible is to avoid it reaching those levels. Some people don't seem to see that.
