one man's conspiracy is another man's business plan
Sunday, August 15, 2004 | Bush's Massacre Bounce It is no coincidence that the poll numbers of symbolic US figurehead George Bush have, in the past few days, risen with the death toll in Iraq.
Xymphora, love your blog, but the evidence is just not with you on this one.
Increasing the number of Iraqis reported killed by the mainstream US newsmedia always gives Bush more bounce than terralerts and Tom Ridge Press conferences combined.
Some may not even be aware of it, others may prefer not to think about it, but nothing increases the figurehead's "job approval rating" like more dead Muslims.
This must have the Kerry camp wringing its hands. All the taller multimillionaire can do is try to keep driving home the message that if he were president, the Tigris and Euphrates would run red. Of course, he can't put it quite in those words.
That "difference" between the two parties that Democrats in line for jobs if their side wins are so proud of is largely based on saying things in a nicer way.
If you think the current NewSpeak coming out of the White House is blackly humorous (liberators, coalition, sovereignty) the Democrats will have you helplessly on the floor, clutching your sides.
It's not a "draft," it's a National Service Program. Is two years of Service really too much for you to give to your country? Don't call it imperialism, how about Nation Building? And of course, my personal favorite, the "face." Put a multinational face on colonization, a Democratic face on child rape.
Has there ever been a US "election" that mattered less to the world?
Well, yes, about all of them, but this one is different because more people know just how little it matters.
In the olden days, news of war and politics travelled slowly, by human mouths and feet, human or horse. By the time the provinces heard the latest doings in the capital or on the battlefield, the cast of characters could have undergone a complete turnover and the battlefield changed three times. And that's if the story arrived in the provinces in unembroidered, uncut and accurate form, which is unlikely.
Today even the mightiest military machine in the history of the planet, armed with a propaganda machine to match, cannot prevent the news from getting out.
It might not make it to the crusadenets, it might be dismissed as unreliable, propaganda, anti-American, terrorist lies by US warlord syndicate loyalists, both Republican and Democrat, thus confirming the veracity of the news item in question for the rest of the world, which, by the way, is not unaware of what IS reported on the crusadenets, nor ignorant of the significance of Bush's Massacre Bounce.
Actions like Sep 11 do not happen in a vaccuum.
Long before those hijackers ever stepped foot on the planes the damage
had been done. They were brainwashed with the same type of garbage
propaganda that is spewed from Fatwa's weblog.
Middle Eastern countries are so much more barbaric today and preAmercia than America can ever hope to be...America has only been around 230 years...who did you blame for everything before that Ductape? I am calling a Fatwa on your bullshit!
IMO - terrorist plain and simple. He is an Al queda operative who
should be put in a cage on gitmo Skinner
My favorite..."In Defense of Holocaust Deniers"
I always thought that "The Enemy Within" was just a metaphore for liberalism, that is, until I encountered Ductape Fatwa. He should be in an orange jumpsuit for sure.
peopleforchange.netductape is either a commie, al queda, or a deep cover mole
Tells you something about this asshole doesn't it. He's really serious.
I believe that DF is nothing but a Republican plant...
Ductape is a commie, a terrorist, and he drinks blood too. He drinks
Capitalist blood. He eats unborn babies too
Give me your address and I'll send you $20 and a thank-you note for taking your hatred elsewhere.
A terrorist with a sense of humor!
He ain't nuthin' but shit
inadequate, halfway house bullshit
You are a dumbass. Fuck you and your condescension about us "benighted sheeple." hamletta
Untruthful, damaging bullshit
no better than the neocons and no different than Timothy McVeigh
dailykos.coma turd in the punchbowl...if DF were Joe Hill he probably would have killed himself rather than get put to death.
A compost pile of fecundity
dailykos.comdespicable and literally mentally ill
