What? Officials taking a action?!
Shouldn't officials ignore them and say 'they welcome a constructive debate'? like officials at SDSU did when a conservative spokesdouche put up posters calling 7 students terrorists?
They should, but Boston is looking for any excuse to re-instate martial law.
Hopefully the Nazis come back, and this time leave Mooninites all over campus.
Between the BRA and their cronies illegally rezoning stuff so they can tear down historic neighborhoods and put up expensive high rise condos, and the BPD & Co.'s militant response to the marathon bombing (I was there, I had no idea the BPD had fully armored troop transport vehicles ready to be rolled out in minutes but they apparently do, because I saw them) Boston feels even more tense and police-statey than Manhattan these days. For all my grumbling about it, I'd rather be in Providence all things considered, although even down here I've seen people with body armor and rifles milling around the train station from time to time.
Yeah, last year a buddy of mine moved back up there to de-stress and reconnect with his old busking community. Neither is working out too well.
SHEESH GUYS CALM DOWN IT'S ONLY MARTIAL LAW
That is not hyperbole coming from someone who lived in Watertown at the the time they turned it into Escape from New York's Manhattan and had doughy body-armored stormtroopers systematically emptying out houses at gun point.
And at the end, the streets were full of people CHEERING them for it.
Why don't we try fighting the terrorists with drum circles, man?
*rebellious bong noises*
They put the public in way more danger by having thousands of trigger happy cops with assault rifles emptying homes (what if a resident had been mentally handicapped and started freaking out? Or worse, was black?) than the threat of one idiot murderer on the run.
And what do you know, turns out that massive, dangerous, ridiculously expensive martial law mobilization of an entire American town (that's exactly what it was) in addition to an entire metropolis completely shutting down was totally worthless. The bomber was found hiding in someone's backyard boat and they called the police, exactly what would have happened if the response had been nothing but news coverage.
The cops then lit the boat the fuck up with concentrated gunfire FOR AN HOUR *in a residential area*, showing less restraint than detonating an Iraqi IED. Then they lied about it being "exchanging fire" before it was reported that the bomber had no weapons on him.
Fuck that unnecessary, dangerous action and even more dangerous precedent. Remember how quickly the Department of Homeland Security turned from only being used against totally for sure terrorist bad guys to crushing dissent? Look forward to more of this shit across the country within the next 10 years, with increasingly bullshit pretenses.
I'm pretty sure that at no point DHS for stopping actual terrorists. Just hassling traitors that don't support our trooooops.

Trigger Warning: Mac Tonight.
That looks an awful lot like the 'moon man' memes. I'd be willing to bet that this is some kind of misguided prank, not real Nazis. Not that that makes it any better.

Somewhere some poor schmuck is watching the Nazi space fleet through their telescope and just fuming at how the media is treating their attempt to warn the earth.
Sanest Man Alive
It's a bigger reception than Iron Sky got, at least.
