When I saw the first portion of this video where he confronted the Border Patrol for 30 minutes I was very impressed with this man.
I truly applauded his actions.
When I heard later that he ended up being taken out of his car and beaten I wasn't surprised.
I thought good for him, he hung tough by his principals to the very end.
I was surprised when I it was disclosed he is a Pastor at a church. It seemed a great touch of just how far the State does go and the State does go
way to far in abusing it's many unconstitutional security powers.
Now having said that, seeing this tap...
I have one very true concern. This man managed to remain argumentative while respectful the whole way through the confrontational process remaining
advesarial and constantly questioning their authority and motives the whole way though.
Right up until they said..."Close your eyes"
Now I have to tell you personally that's when I would not have stopped being advesarial and said something wholy inline with this man's apparent
charachter like..."Close my eyes, what do you want me to close my eyes for, what purpose and by what right do you have to tell me to close my eyes,
what are you going to do once I have my eyes closed" etc., etc.
That strikes me as real strange.
That strikes me as real strange and totally out of charachter for this particular man.
Now when you couple that then with this video now later surfacing...
with the actual footage from the Border Patrol...
I have to have to have to wonder...something I have been wondering for months...
Is our government trying to seed deliberately the things that would lead to an open act of rebellion?
Could things like the incrementally staged releases of these videos, other government abuses regarding the constitution, the bailout give aways to the
big corporations, the election of the first Black President, the highly hyped dangers of things like Swine Flu, the continued lack of lending to small
businesses and consumers, stepped up police activities etc., etc., because they want us to openly rebel?
A rebellion they then in theory at least in their minds use to do things like take away key critical rights, shut down public access to the Internet,
shut down the banks, and introduce a new form of government, possibly merged with Canada and Mexico, do away with the dollar and most of our freedoms
and principals in the process?
Now maybe I am overly paranoid, but it really seems to me that even the government can not believe that many of us are that stupid that they can
burden the tax payers with trillions of dollars of additional debt that not a penny anywhere seems to trickling to us in the form of credit starting
to flow again or in new jobs...
I know what it's like to catch a beating courtesy of Uncle Sam and have my rights denied, and frankly there is something about the first minute and a
half of this video that doesn't look right to me.
That's my two cents
