A police squad consisting of male and female cops and a token black brandishing electro-shock equipment on a university campus subdue a student asking political questions of a Democratic Senator. And the Democratic Senator calmly watches it all. Fully-integrated, equal-opportunity, politically-correct techno-fascism. Perfect.
What we didn't know is that every police station in America is a subsidiary of Abu Ghraib and that we're the enemy in their war on terror.
How did this integrated, front-line anti-terrorist squad on the University of Florida's campus where Senator John Kerry was accepting questions from the audience decide that student Andrew Meyer was a terrorist? He asked, since Bush was threatening to attack Iran, why wasn't Kerry trying to impeach Bush? Click! Terrorist! Attack! Electro-shock! Subdue! Handcuff! Imprison!
What was it that triggered the anti-terrorist squad into action? It was that Andrew Meyer's question pin-pointed with precision the farce of the so-called legislative branch of the triumvirated balance of power of the US state. And that's terrorism.
The architects of this techno-fascism will be made uncomfortable by its exposure because Americans fought a war against fascism. It will be interesting to watch the damage control propaganda which will be rolled out to deny its existence. The standard line in such circumstances is, "He brought it on himself," also known as, "Blame the Victim."

The Nazis were proud of their fascism. Americans aren't.
If it makes you comfortable you can call that a difference.
