Right wing propaganda machine springs into action: Let's change the subject!
After weeks of getting hammered by Katrina, and months of getting hammered by Iraq, the right wing propaganda machine has decided on their new course of action: Let's change the subject! Idiot Drudge has emblazoned his web page with a 50 pt typeface headline on some minor ruling in the old "Pledge" case. Glenn Beck, Laura Ingrahm, all those buffoons are tsk tsking the social scene. Bill O'reilly is back to claiming the ACLU is the anti-Christ, this time pulling out the old "One World Government" boogeyman, saying that the ACLU (vs the Illuminati, I suppose) is now the head of that devious debbill work. The reason? Polls now show the Repugs are losing their base. Even rednecks are sick of Bush. So they need to get Bubba all riled up again, and soccer mom needs to be frightened with the debbill again. Don't let them do it. Speak truth to power.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
