I am at present watching what has to be the most intense propaganda blitz I have ever witnessed. These propagandists are not going to be believed because they are moving with ludicrous speed. I watched Chris Matthews of MSNBC talking with Eugene Robbins for The Washington Post and Howard Fineman for The Huffington Post. They looked like three crack junkies deciding who is going to go get the next bag. It was then suggested that to doubt the authenticity of the document Barry put forth today equated to unreasonable thought.
So old Barry the Rat was getting close to being exposed as the illegitimate son of a socialist he is and just as it was starting to come out that Barry might have had connections with the CIA prior to being elected, Ala Kazam!! That long form birth certificate that had been so elusive for two years, over two short days just materialized. Why shouldn’t I believe it?
Think about it. They throw a photo of a document onto the TV and before people have a chance to think, they blast us with propaganda designed to portray the unreasonable as completely reasonable in the hope of winding up somewhere in the middle.
Yesterday, about 62% of Americans believed that Barry was not born here. If their propaganda is halfway successful it might bring that number down to, oh say, 40%, which I guess is a manageable number.
I would strongly recommend watching this Chris Matthews show, Hardball, which aired today if you want to see what hardcore propaganda looks like. The truth is I don’t think anyone who believed yesterday that Obama was not born here does not feel the same way today. In fact they so overacted their parts that I believe it is having the opposite effect. Anyway, watch it if you can.
That was a lot of flack.
