Democracy IS Disorderly!
This past week, at a Congressional Oversight (plantation masters) Committee meeting about to overturn a DC local law, my long-time BBF, comrade and DC freedom fighter Adam Eidinger was snatched from his seat by police, hustled out of the hall and placed under arrest. The charge is, for all intents and purposes, Giving A Dirty Look To A Politician -- not joining an organized disruption, or jumping up during the proceedings -- nothing conventionally "disorderly", but basically just being there, with his Phrygian Cap and throwing a quick side-eye at DC's new plantation overseer.
And so, it's in honor and solidarity that I present this portrait of Adam, on the occasion of this bizarre and disturbing arrest.
