Donald Rumsfeld, smiling at the looting of Baghdad, said something to the effect that “freedom can look messy.” Fox is a bit shocked by the messiness of counter-hegemonic freedom in the streets of Denver, and so are the authorities who created special “Freedom Cages” and even Guantanamo-like detention cells that were to be surrounded by razor wire.

What was that about China?

I’ll have a post up as soon as I can find good video.
