“Modern propaganda is distinguished from other forms of communication by its deliberate and conscious use of false or misleading information to sway public opinion. Propaganda is the deliberate, systematic attempt to shape perceptions, manipulate cognition’s, and direct behaviour to achieve a response that furthers the desired intent of the propagandist.”
The preceding quote is found in Roget’s New Millennium Thesaurus.
The use of propaganda to win or maintain political power has been used in the United States since the days of President Wilson, but today the Democrat Party has refined it to an art form. The following are some examples of the lies used as propaganda to sway public opinion.
“I hope the administration stops this malarkey about that the war in Iraq is about Al Qaeda.” – Sen. Joe Biden, Presidential Candidate and veteran of the Senate Armed Services Committee CBS Early Show interview with Hannah Storm. (October 16, 2007)
Al Qaeda has been in Iraq long before the invasion. Prior to the U.S. led invasion, there were numerous Islamic extremist groups operating freely and with the support of Saddam’s regime and Al Qaeda’s command councils. Among these groups, Ansar al Sunni, Ansar al Jeddah, and Ansar al Islam were the most prominent. Saddam’s intelligence forces , worked through them, using these groups to conduct assassinations and other attacks on Saddam’s opponents in Northern Iraq. Numerous detainees; captured Iraqi intelligence agents of Saddam as well captured members of those groups and captured Al Qaeda detainees all make this claim.
Senator Biden and other Democrats lied to Americans by saying: “that the war in Iraq has nothing to do with the war on terror; the fight against Osama Bin Laden and his network of terrorist groups.”
The Democrat Party’s Congress ordered that the words, “Global War on Terror” no longer be used. Senator Edwards (another Democrat seeking the Presidency) has said that the “the war on terror is just a bumper sticker!”.
Leaders of the party’s base like Michael Moore and Bill Maher have told us that ” there is no war on terror at all.”
Speaker of the House Pelosi has told us that the war in Iraq is not only not tied to a war that her party’s leaders say doesn’t exist, but she goes further to say that it’s not even a war. It’s “a situation to be solved.”
Last fall Democrats were told a flat out lie by Chairman,Dr. Howard Dean, and other Democratic Party leaders who were trying to find a way to take power on Capitol Hill. Americans were told that Democrats would provide a New Direction in Iraq, and that it wouldn’t be an immediate rout or “redeployment” or withdrawal. Americans were told that there was a plan for success; a change in direction. On election night, Dr.Dean, admitted that there was never even a committee formed to brainstorm ideas on when to hold a meeting to draft such a plan.
There whole plan is a denial of the threat posed by Islamist terrorists, and calling the war, “Bush’s war, despite the fact that most off them authorized the use of force against Saddam before our invasion.
The collaborators in this propaganda campaign, The media, uses half truths and distortions daily to convince the American public, that the war is unjust and that we are loosing it and our prestige in World opinion. This despite the fact that we are daily making progress toward victory.
The Democrats, and the Leftist who appear to control it, are dedicated to the loss of the Iraq war and the destruction of the Judeo-Christian principles that this Country was founded upon and to replace it with a “PC” secularist Nation. This is not unlike the principles of Carl Marx, who theorized the Utopia of Communism, but never lived under it.
