Please read Glenn Greenwald's reports from the streets of St. Paul. This is a shocking roundup of peaceful protesters and watchdog groups who were not causing trouble or breaking the law.
Glenn Greenwald, predictibly [sic],[sic] views these as fascist attempts to stifle dissent."
In the comments, Glenn Greenwald fires back:
The reason it's customary to link to what someone writes when criticizing what they've written is to prevent brazen lying like this.
I said -- so clearly that even you should have been able to digest it -- that the people who committed violence or otherwise broke the law should be arrested. What I wrote had nothing to do with anything you said I wrote.
Nonetheless, keep cheering on preemptive arrests of lawyers, journalists, videographers and legal observers -- along with home invasions and mass arrests of people who had no connection whatsoever with any criminality -- and then keep boasting about what "libertarian" you are. It's good for even more deep entertainment than you normally produce when you move your mouth.
