This is a celebration of state violence against citizens in the name of nationalism.
This is it. Stop looking for other signs. This is it right here.
First: We start with 9/11 imagery. This evokes pain, trauma and anger.
Second: The scene immediately shifts so that the flag image carries those emotions over to to the protesters. They are designated the enemy for this spot.
All of these are the same and have the same enemy. American citizens upset with the government.
And they deserve to be beaten.
...the state forces of government from US citizens.
And it does that by glorifying police, and military -- painting them as victims
There are no terrorists. No dictators.
This spot is Armed Forces vs Unarmed US Citizens and is rooting for the former.
No more predictions.
No more idealism.
Just make sure you get tight with your local community. They will be all you have. And you will want to be a team.
Invite them for dinner if it's safe.
Make sure you have a place to go if things turn left.
Make sure you have emergency communication protocols for your loved ones.
Pay attention to your community.
