The State Feels Dissed by Dancing

Adam Kokesh and other libertarians were arrested at the Jefferson Memorial for silent dancing, which outraged the prison guards. It reminds me of how much I despise the monuments in DC. They’re all pagan temples to the goddess USA and her various divinized emperors. Jefferson’s makes him a Roman godling. Washington’s honors the Egyptian sun god Ra. Lincoln’s portrays him as Jupiter. The Capitol is another temple, complete with a painting of the apotheosis of George in the ceiling of the rotunda. The Supreme Court is a pagan temple, too. Protesters will always be brutalized in the capital of the world police state. Nothing good is to be expected from DC, let alone its self-worshiping religious memorabilia. Love liberty? Avoid the Beltway like the plague it is. (Thanks to Sam)
