Hippies Destroying America

Those damn dirty fu*kn hippies spit at the troops. Digby has something worth reading.

He has become such a famous victim that he and his parents even went to the State of the Union address at the invitation of Dennis Hastert.Some might find it odd that such terrible treatment would befall the same man --- first he gets a terrible Christmas card (Christmas!) that tells him to "go die." Then, he was spat upon by protestors --- a myth of the 1960's come to life right before our very eyes. What are the odds?

Welcome to the Joseph Goebbels school of media and information. I would still find a number of problems with this even if it wasn't propaganda.
First, the impression they are trying to create is that those that oppose their policy on the war hate the troops. If that be the case how do you account for the fact that many parents of troops were among the marchers. Further, how do you account for the fact that many that served, including this very war were among the marchers. Secondly the agrieved Mr. Sparling is quoted in the story as saying(not suprisingly I might add) “These are not Americans as far as I’m concerned” .... Let me tell you if he was screaming what a friend of the enemy and how unamerican I was I'd spit on the ground in front of him to, vet or not. How dare they even postulate such blubbery. That is about as disgusting as anything I can think of. How many people are even buying that "hate America" "want us to loose" crap anyway. These are the kind of nonstories those on the radical right will spew and push over and over and over again. That is how propaganda works.
