“Un pueblo unido no mas sera vencido!”
Whoa. Listen to the audio provided on the Providence Journal page to which Monique links in the previous post. The above quoted line — used to rally momentary resistance to police instructions — is sounding more and more like a threat than encouragement:
Outside the State House, [Providence City Councilman Miguel Luna] said, “When you have the top clergy in the state of Rhode Island and they can’t get through to him [Governor Carcieri], this is the option left.”
“Can’t get through to him,” because, you know, there is only one acceptable course of action, and they will demand that it be taken. Rather than set fear to work in shaken public officials, such attempts at intimidation ought strengthen resolve and hasten implementation of the governor’s plans.
