Sometimes a fist is just a fist (to paraphrase Herr Doktor Freud).Other times it is a highly charged symbol for political ideologies. Itused to be fairly recognizable as a Communist “revolutionary” salute(in stark contrast to the fascist salute). Then it was adopted by the Black Panthers and black nationalism. It looked so good that the new left adopted it from the old. Now, the right wing Tea Baguettes of Freedom Works have co-opted it and are shoving their newly found fist down Washington’s throat.

“This event will be organized by the same coalition thatorganized the original 9/12 March on Washington — includingFreedomWorks, Tea Party Patriots, National Taxpayers Union, TheInstitute for Liberty and a host of other great free market groups fromaround the country.”

Come on people,you have stars, liberty bells, red, white and blue, Corinthian columns,Ms. Liberty and flags, can’t you leave the fist alone? How do you feelabout that Mr. Beck?
