Fantino's Victory Moves us Closer to a Police State

Political philosopher Hannah Arendt, in her book Totalitarianism, describes how both the Nazis and the Bolsheviks used the military and the police, combining the two to create their authoritative regimes.

I've posted a video below. At about the 5:30 mark, you'll notice on the budget projections, that the RCMP are referred to as the Royal Canadian Military Police. Did they undergo a name change or is there a new policing body?

We could ask the prime minister, but our media won't allow it.

We could ask our media but they would not be allowed to answer the question even if they knew what it was, for fear of being beaten up by the RCMP, one or two.

So we can only speculate.

Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair claims that one of the videos being used to show unheard of police brutality was doctored. If that's the case, why were there no convictions?

And what about the hundreds and hundreds of other videos? Were they all doctored?

A little conspiracy theory going on in your head Blair? A little tinfoil police helmet?

James Laxer tells us to Wake up: Arbitrary rule is all around us

The recent election of Julian Fantino in Rob Ford's Toronto, should be our wake up call.

If the left does not unite to bring down this regime, they might as well be holding the gun.

Hannah Arendt, once questioned whether Nazi Germany was in fact a full totalitarian dictatorship, since it depended so heavily on a "certain societal consensus". Good question.
"The force possessed by totalitarian propaganda - before the movements have the power to drop iron curtains to prevent any one's disturbing, by the slightest reality, the gruesome quiet of an entirely imaginary world - lies in its ability to shut the masses off from the real world." - Hannah Arendt
The G-20 was a test for martial law, which may be required when the Harper government releases it's austerity budget.

And we passed it.

We will now allow this government to get away with anything.

  1. Justice being taken away, then, what are kingdoms but great robberies? For what are robberies themselves, but little kingdoms?

    The band itself is made up of men; it is ruled by the authority of a prince, it is knit together by the pact of the confederacy; the booty is divided by the law agreed on. If, by the admittance of abandoned men, this evil increases to such a degree that it holds places, fixes abodes, takes possession of cities, and subdues peoples, it assumes the more plainly the name of a kingdom, because the reality is now manifestly conferred on it, not by the removal of covetousness, but by the addition of impunity.

    Indeed, that was an apt and true reply which was given to Alexander the Great by a pirate who had been seized. For when that king had asked the man what he meant by keeping hostile possession of the sea, he answered with bold pride,

    “What thou meanest by seizing the whole earth; but because I do it with a petty ship, I am called a robber, whilst thou who dost it with a great fleet art styled emperor.”
    ~ St. Augustine of Hippo

    Pirates and Emperors? No real difference.
