Fascist Shake-Down In New York City

Some wonder how fascism overcame the Italians, French, and Germans in the 1930s.  The answer is - one tiny step at a time.

Today at the U.S. Conference Of  Mayors a fatuous fascist shake-down happened to Talk Radio Network reporter Jason Mattera.

Mattera had the 'gall' to ask Mayor Bloomberg “In the spirit of gun control, will you disarm your entire security team?” Bloomberg’s fumbled: “Uh, you, we’ll get right back to you.”

“Why can you defend yourself but not the majority of Americans?” Mattera insisted. “Look at the team of security you’ve got. And you’re an advocate for gun control?”  No answer from Bloomberg.

As Mattera walks away one of Bloomberg's 'guards', an Officer Stockton NYPD, stops Mattera and asks to see his photo ID. Mattera complies and as Stockton copies the ID Mattera objects and walks away again. Mattera is then chased by the cop who now demands to know his date of birth. Mattera refuses to answer and begins to worry about his safety.

Not quite a Gestapo molestation but awfully close considering the DIRECT and EXPLICIT rights the press have to ask ANY question of ANY public figure they deem appropriate.
