Spanish Police Brutality Multiple Choice Time

Tyler Durden's picture





 

When is the best time to attack a woman if you are a Spanish policeman?

a) When she is non-threatening

b) When she is defenseless

c) When you are caught on tape

d) Anytime really

e) All of the above

This Spanish upholder of the law has just passed with flying colors: fast forward to 30 seconds in.

The very unlucky Spanish Anarchists, during the Civil War, were murdered en masse by both the Nationalists (Franco) and the Republicans (Spanish Communist Party/Stalin).  In Barcelona, the Anarchist groups were the most genuinely popular among ordinary citizens.  That didn't stop the NKVD, with American Communists in the Lincoln Brigades, from killing their leadership and foot soldiers.  The history of Spain may be turning from the sunny post-1975 narrative to what it was from the time of Napoleon to the time of Franco.  Vaya con Dios, Espana.

Dear Sir, the Spanish Communist party was not supported by Stalin on account of his links to France at the time.  Therefore Stalin's communist party actually supported the right-wing fascists and Franco.

That is false.  Period.

Spanish Civil War

During the Spanish Civil War, NKVD agents, acting in conjunction with the Communist Party of Spain, exercised substantial control over the Republican government, using Soviet military aid to help further Soviet influence. The NKVD established numerous secret prisons around Madrid, which were used to detain, torture, and kill hundreds of the NKVD's enemies, at first focusing on Spanish Nationalists and Spanish Catholics, while from late 1938 increasingly anarchists and Trotskyists were the objects of persecution. In June, 1937 Andres Nin, the secretary of the anti-Stalinist Marxist POUM, was tortured and killed in an NKVD prison.

Frankly, fascists and communists are two different but closely related flavors of socialism. The fascists allow free markets and companies favored by the state while commies do not. Both believe in centralized heavy handed states. They often compete because totalitarians never like competition. Both are ruthless and believe any means are justified on the way to achieving their ends. Both are nearly identical with single party rule, reeducation camps/death camps and ideological empires.

Women have endured this brutality from men all over the world for eons now. This is nothing new. In some countries, she is blamed for the beastality of men, in most others, a small percentage of men are even prosecuted. Try living in a country where homicide, robbery and burglary are not prosecuted, or in others where only 3% to 6%  are prosecuted and convicted.

I mean the US can't afford UHC but they spend a trillion dollars a year on making war on anyone poor enough not to be able to properly defend themselves but having lots of oil (or other valuable assets) to exchange for repairing the infrastructure destroyed by the war started by the US, is anybody really surprised when their weapons get used to stomp out the righteous?

Like the guy says, guns don't kill people, people kill people. It's kind of like blaming the US just because they created the first nuclear weapon; that doesn't mean they are responsible for those who first used it on civilian populationS.... erm, nm, scratch that last part.

My point was, that during the Spanish Civil War, Communist agents, under the direction of Stalin, killed Spanish Anarchists, in the thousands.  That is a historical fact.  Read some history, friend, there is much about the '30s (what Orwell called the Low, Dishonest Decade with good reason) that has been over-simplified, airbrushed, "sweetened."  FYI I am not a jingoist, I am an American patriot, there are still a few dozen of us left.

'Futile'? Hardly. Sheesh, you can misnome with the best of 'em:
Freedom of Information Act, Clean Drinking water Act.... Ralph Nader's list of contributions goes on for awhile regardless of your wilful ignorance. Pretty useful four (count em: 4) decades of service to mainstreet america, successful without even making it to POTUS, despite giving you four chances at it. It's not Ralph's fault you're too duped to recognize that he is the only one who would actually stand behind that constitution you allegedly hold in such high regard.

No problems with the quote, then?

But yeah, he's really really really old, now. Still got some 'fire in his belly', I've heard. Not so great in an O'Reilly bark-out these days, I know. Though he's never shied away from the opportunity, as far as his health allows...

And your typical `All or nothing`, no compromise position, is exactly why the US will never escape the plutocracy that has captured it.

The 'Nanny state' talking point is such a tired overstatement; Ronald Reagan Rote. A trillion fiatscos plus annually go to changing the filthiest type of diapers daily on the 'bottle fed' military: Ralph as POTUS, if he survived long enough, would take care of that in a very 'anti-Nanny' sort of way. Even today that 'money' would buy a helluva lot of bandaids. RN would also undoubtedly abruptly wean corporations from the public's nipples, which would help set a lot of broken bones. IE you need to realize that you are IN a nanny state right now, and Ralph's actual goal is to get you out of it; the very opposite of your misapprehension.

One question to ask yourself when it comes to Ralph Nader: Do you really think he would have bailed out the banks before mainstreet in 2008, and everyday since?

IMO the probable answer to that question alone should have directed your voting the last 4 elections.

Thank you for automatically summarizing a couple of the more serious problems plaguing the American psyche, and the success of those propagating them.

Guns are used for self defense and freedom. Guns are used for aggression and oppression. The problem is not the gun. Those who don't have them are usually doomed to oppression.

It is the result of social conditioning, where people are taught to blame a neutral object (a gun, a baton) for a bad outcome, instead of the bad person using the object, as a result of an ideological decision to excuse bad human behavior, while at the same time, encouraging the restriction of defensive techologies from the hands of civilians.  It's a meme, or a mental sickness, that is endemic in certain societies and political circles.

Or it is the result of social conditioning when people are taught to deny that objects are designed with an intent and to serve a purpose. Objects are not neutral.

 

Propagandists should renew their propaganda. The "people kill people, not guns" flawed approach has been debunked for ages now.

 

Objects are not neutral and the days a rich country army display butter knifes instead of AR is still to come. Somehow, people in situation no longer think that objects are neutral.

You know what, dude, you don't think that a French baton would have served the purpose as well?  The American baton manufacturer was likely chosen because it was the lowest bidder, so the Spanish taxpayer was saved a few pesetas in meeting Spain's fascist-girl-clubbing needs.  I'd say that the bad actor here was the SPANISH COP, but what do I know, I'm not familiar with Foucault's Theory of Agency for Inanimate Objects, must have missed that course offered for Europeans in their 11th year at "University".

The verbal fist fight above is representative of the serious underlying social problems we have.

Through my own personal experience, I believe the vast majority of our military men are good people. Very good people.  They do reflect society and as society has a few bad apples, so does the military.

On the other hand, we do have a little problem called the MIC and a history of empire building. This has led to a vast expansion of corporatism and the erosion of the Constitution [Cliff notes version.. ;)]

BOTH sides must realize the legitimate gripes of the other and FIX the problems rather than give in to the desire to beat the living hell out of the opposing view.  It's the only way forward and upward, friends.

Of course by us doing so, they would have to decide what level of security, if any, they want for themselves. This also implies their tax & spending may have to be...ummm, restructured ;-)

As for the damn fascists, who came from our schools of "higher learning" to become the titans of our financial, corporate, political & media world...that's going to be a much harder & longer slog I believe.

 * PJ Ramirez, one of our best journalists,

 

 Pedro J Ramírez ha conseguido por fin reunir todas las pruebas que involucran a Marruecos, a ETA y al PSOE en los atentados del 11M.

Al parecer todo sucedió así:
Marruecos quería atentar contra el gobierno de Aznar y como aperitivo comenzó tratando de arrebatarle a España el islote de Perejil. Con buen criterio, Aznar llamó a Bush y con el apoyo logístico de los norteamericanos la invasión quedó frustrada. Entonces los marroquíes, malhumorados por el ridículo que habían hecho, se pusieron en contacto con ETA para planificar el 11M. El PSOE estaba al corriente de todo a través de los contactos que tiene con la banda terrorista, puesto que siempre han estado negociando con ETA: antes y después de la elecciones del 14-M-2004. El atentado se llevaría a cabo el día 11 de marzo de 2004 para poder disfrazarlo de castigo islamista a Aznar y que así el PSOE ganase las elecciones, que era lo que más le interesaba a ETA. Lo que el PSOE jamás imaginó fue la magnitud que iba a tener el atentado en el que murieron tantos inocentes. 
Pedro J dispone incluso de una grabación en la que se escucha claramente a Pepiño Blanco diciéndole a Rubalcaba: "ya está todo listo, Alfredo... todo el mundo se ha tragado lo de los islamistas... ¡¡hemos ganado las elecciones!!''. A raíz de esta información y de las numerosas pruebas que posee, Pedro J está siendo amenazado incluso por el propio Zapatero, pero él dice que no tiene miedo, que a él le pueden matar pero que lo que nunca podrán es matar su periódico. El diario EL MUNDO cuenta con un equipo de más de 1.000 personas investigando el 11M, en el que hay incluso guardias civiles, agentes del CNI, policías nacionales, jueces, investigadores privados, etc.
Rodriguez Ibarra le escribió una carta a Pedro J diciéndole que si es verdad que todo esto sucedió así, él exigirá la disolución del PSOE. También le pidió a Pedro J que no publicara la carta. Y esa es la única y verdadera razón por la que Rodríguez Ibarra ya no se presenta a la Junta de Extremadura en las próximas elecciones.
El plan de Pedro J, tal y como ha manifestado en la radio, es ir sacándolo todo a la luz poco a poco y justo antes de las próximas elecciones para darle la puntilla final al PSOE .
Recordad las palabras de Luis del Pino el otro día:
"Todo esto que está saliendo no es nada comparado con lo que va a salir en los próximos meses..."

Ya veremos lo que opinan los españoles cuando quede demostrado que el PSOE conocía que se iban a cometer los atentados del 11-M y por fin se desenmascaren estos sinvergüenzas.

A translation on an interesting phrase on your post:

 "All this is starting and is nothing compared with we will have in a few months"

 That is another developed world country going kaboom, this most likely will ensure another "creative destruction" rally on stocks.

As US politicians say "This type of stuff will never happen in the US"

If you see this forming trend and you are not worried for the entire humanity, you work at GS.

"americans are not european pussies.."

We will see. Thus far Americans have shown a strong capacity for being quite docile while bending over and holding their ankles for their owners.

We've also been nicely domesticated with food additives and high fructose corn syrup to create one of the more obese populations on the planet However, that might mean guns come out earlier since it's easier to shoot than walk one more block to front lines.

Further, our owners have ensured they will have a ruthless police force in America by sending our troops to endless wars where they can learn kill with impunity then come back and get a job on the police force.

The problem with starting violence is the owners then turn up the heat quickly. Cops beating a student is one thing, a pile of citizens beating a cop will play differently in the media and the large herd of traditionalist sheople will find themselves severely torn between fighting for their own freedom versus fighting an authority figure. Sure the cops are part of the repression at that point, but tons of people in this country will still compliantly bow to them.

IF such protests break out here, it will be interesting to see how it all happens since we will likely be one of the last countries to do so and the police will have honed their techniques on the crowds in other countries. Will the protesters have learned too or will they have smartened up along the way? Interesting times ahead.

Didn't stop paramilitaries in Ireland, Basques in Spain, from rearming. Get a grip, when the people decide to take up the gun, they just march in to the armoury and get them or ship them in from some sympathiser country like good old USA who want to see chaos so their sheep can BTFD. If you start firing at the police they will fire back for a while until they realise their own fucking families are in the crowd too. Havent you been following North Africa, Middle east lately. Anyway, it's more fun to walk up to a line and smack one of the pigs with your fists and have them come ahead if they think they are fucking hard enough. Us pussy Europeans enjoy a good old rammy with the law and you can be assured we are most definately not disarmed. Do your research lad. Anyway, hope it doesn't get bad before I'm back from Spain next week. I may even lend a hand.....

Bullshit.  We are docile like fucking lambs to slaughter.  Just look at the airport.  Yesterday, me and a couple dozen of my fellow passengers were herded through one of the naked x-ray machines without a single objection to the invasive nature of what was about to occur.  I unfortunately went through with my belt on.  When I was finished being bombarded by harmless radiation the TSA guy on the other end told me to remove my belt and that he was going to have to put his hands inside my pant line to make sure I was not carrying anything that could take down a 737 in my waistband. 

I've committed no crime, am an elite member, and have no track record of terrorism...so I gritted my teeth and looked at the guy.  In that instant of no response I could tell the guy was ready to assert his $30,000 a year tax-payer funded authority over me.  He asked me in a very aggressive manner again to stick his hands inside my waistline to check for weapons. We were just one or two comments from tasers and plastic handcuffs being brought out simply because I was pissed about getting felt up without dinner or flowers.     

Don't fucking tell me guns will be brought out.  Whatever occurs will be wrapped up in protecting the public from terrorism, preventing anarchy, saving the American way, puppies, kittens, and free iPhones...the public will swallow it and like it.

You oughta turn off the teevee, Sun.

What you see there is just a story.  It's designed to keep most people happily placated.  In your case, it's working very well to keep you pissed-off and ranting on message boards and unhappily placated.

If you forget all that nonsense, you'll see there's a lot more widespread understanding of our society present amongst the citizenry.  People aren't nearly as stupid as the teevee talking heads have you convinced they are.

There's apathy, sure, but that's because not enough people have been affected by our state of affairs yet.  (Personally, I'm not sure that apathy is misplaced, either.  It's not clear to me that the public has any significant influence on the actions of our power-institutions.  We can do a lot for each other locally--that doesn't mean we have to worry about what Obama or Barney Frank have to say about anything.)

My point is simply to disbelieve what's "portrayed" as important to people from the same media that we all know is total bullshit.

Most here talk about how the media is full of lies, but when it comes time to discuss what "Americans" care about, how often do you see "sheeple" and "American Idol"? Where do these impressions of the citizenry come from?  Day to day experience talking to people, or assumptions based on your own biases constructed during your indoctrination?

It's a Rorschach.  Whatever you want to be true on teevee is true.  If you disagree, it's not true.

We all must be careful with that.

No doubt. Those are probably the reasons the police are being so brutal: to send a message for people to stay home or else.  Which is why it is on tape, so the news will send out the message for them free of charge.

We are not in disagreement.  My point is the gov is giving a show of force in order to act as a deterant.  I would not be surprised if the riot control was made up of people who had a "special score" on the personality tests, which would agree with your observation they seem to be enjoying it.

Might I suggest to the rioters and other hippiez planning to make a showing at future events that they:

1. Head to the gym, setup a mass-building program. Heavy weights, low reps. One hour, 5x/week minimum

2. Start consuming protein shakes and lean mass gainers. These kids are easy pickins for the coppers. Size matters and these coppers don't look that big.

3. Better coordination. Single rioters bolting through the police line elicits potshots from rubber bullet guns.

4. Pad up like the cops do. Hit the local sporting goods store and get shin and knee pads. Suit up and get ready to rumble. The cops sure are.

Actually I think it's a lot harder to stereotype a cop personality than it is say a lawyer or a stockbroker or radiologist personality. At least in the US.  Area of operation is probably the biggest determining factor but - small town, big city, rural, state - cops have run the gamut in my experience from the helpful, protect-and-serve type to the bone-crushingly stupid aggressive asshole and it always seems like it's the luck of the draw...

Can't disagree even more. Northern cops are self-entitled thugs who think the people should acquiesce to them since they're wearing a badge. Recent posting here on ZH referencing NJ cops working the Katrina mess in NoLo a few years back being the ones bent on confiscating home-owner's guns. Northern cops are fearful of an armed populace. Not an issue in the South or Mid-west . Northern cops can't handle the Constitution.
