Dawn Of The New Fascist - Alaska Senate Candidate Joe Miller

The Anchorage Daily News reports that Tony Hopfinger, who founded and edits "Alaska Dispatch," was handcuffed and detained arrested by Alaska senate candidate Joe Miller's private guards at an Anchorage school. The senate hopeful was on hand as part of a town hall event and Mr. Hopfinger was there to try and interview the candidate.

The reporter was on public property where a public event was being held at the time of the incident.

Hopfinger had been trying to ask Miller questions when two or three guards told him to leave or risk being charged with trespassing. When Hopfinger continued to try to ask questions, one of the guards put the reporter in an arm-bar and then handcuffed him.

Hopfinger was released after police arrived.

The "private security" guards claim that Hopfinger shoved a man, but Hopfinger claims that he only pushed back at a guard after the guard began pushing him.

I am not sure why the "private guards" didn't call police. But I am sure with their expert training they figured why not detain someone on public property that you don't like. Too bad it that might constitute kidnapping or false imprisonment. When you are above the law you do as you will. It is good to hear Joe Miller has his own private SA, SS or Stassi or whatever we call them today. [What do you think the SA was about? Exactly this, those who questioned Hitler during his rise to power (but before he got it) would be attacked by the SA who would beat them, kidnap them, and sometimes make them disappear permanently.]

But just because Mr. Miller may be kidnapping his detractors is not why I think he is now a leading candidate for Fascism. No there is another position of Mr. Miller's that I find more disturbing.

Recently, Mr. Miller abruptly announced that he would no longer answer questions from the press. "We've drawn a line in the sand. You can ask me about background, you can ask me about personal issues, I'm not going to answer them. I'm not," he said at the time.

He is running for US Senate and he refuses to answer questions!! Why should anyone vote for a candidate that refuses to answer questions? Does Mr. Miller believe that he is above answering questions? Does Mr. Miller believe that he is so superior to us dumb Joe's that he need not explain himself?

Is Mr. Miller waiting to be anointed Führer und Reichskanzler?

Seems very convenient that someone trying to ask Mr. Miller questions needed to be arrested by Mr. Miller's private guards. Perhaps Mr. Miller if you answered questions no crimes need have been committed.


  1. Is Drop Zone a subsidiary of Blackwater? Brother.... The Republican nutcase candidates are so afraid voters will find out who they really are that they are hiring fleets of bodyguards to protect them (at schools for kids, no less) from questions coming from citizens and reporters. Don

  2. The Tea party movement is a an illiterate mob, applying nazi tactics and advancing white supremacy. They talk about buzz words like small goverment without even knowing what they mean. They talk about deficit reduction without one idea of how they are going to do it. Now they are arresting journalists to avoid scrutiny. People who really love this country should stop and think, who are these tea baggers and what are they hiding from the general public? There is no point in knowing the true color of the tea party movement after voting is done.

  3. Typical white male anger...TEABAGGERS and BIRTHERS are getting in touch with their FACISTS ROOTS!


  4. So freedom of the press only applies to the "right" people? So who decides who that is? You? Joe Miller? Who? Doug NYC

  5. I agree, Joe Miller is INSANE!!! Just the way the baggers like them. crazier the better, you betcha!!! They re just the KKK rebranded.

  6. Millers' approval has gone from 42% negative to 58% negative in just the past 2 weeks. This stunt should be GREAT for his numbers. Jake

  7. Tea Baggers are for stupid Americans who are ignorant on just about every level. They are worshiping folks like the mentally challenged Palin. Their best attempts at rallying momentum are by throwing gays to the lions to get cheers from their idiotic audience. It is a shameful group of Americans that want their white america back. Nothing more.

  8. This is the kind of candidate Palin supports: someone who won't answer questions. She can see Nazi Germany from her front porch.

  9. Joe Miller's face looks like it got kicked in one too many times as a youth.
    Be afraid be very afraid of this sort of man.

  10. ha ha He fucking lost!

  11. Seriously deranged person with obvious megalomania...No wonder he suits Trump. Just looking at him I could imagine him presiding over the lines of people heading to the gas chambers. What is happening to America
