We mentioned yesterday that a RNC protestor was arrested (after resisting arrest, of course) with a kukri strapped to his leg.
It wasn’t until this morning that I heard another RNC protestor was arrested armed with a machete, among other weapons. So far, that is two protestors armed with very similar weapons, weapons that aren’t usually carried by Americans (though they are popular for mob violence in Kenya). A rather odd coincidence, isn’t it?
It seems all very Nacht der langen Messer, if a bit too literal in interpretation.
