"Boot On The Neck" - Oppression Against Individuals - The Thing To Do Against Corporations

"Boot On The Neck" of British Petroleum.
This is what Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said in relation to how the Obama Administration is holding this corporation accountable.

It is ironic as to how the word "Boot On The Neck" which is attached to the notions of oppression has been co-opted for use against a corporation.   In the context of civil rights "the boot on the neck" is repudiated.

I am not surprised then to see a member of the Obama Administration leverage their angst against corporations, appropriating this word as such.  Furthermore I am not surprised about the silence over the word within the progressive community.
