Paranoid fear-mongering or do Americans have genuine cause for concern?

  1. Mmmmhh. A lot of that sounded like typical Murdoch propaganda to me.

      I guess the best thing to do would be to check into the claims and see if they’re true. Not sure the makers of the video would at all agree with comparisons to Murdoch propaganda, though! In fact, propaganda tends to be supportive of government policy. You sure you know what you’re talking about?

  2. I sometimes wonder. Sectionalism is very much on the rise, and being used by politicians and pundits, ( Red states, Blue states, Left Coast, Border states.) The outspoken open racism, to me is shocking in the way that it seems to be more and more acceptable to some, always with the caveat of “Of course that doesn’t apply to the good ones (black,Hispanic,Vietnamese, Islamic people, Sikhs,) and when you have Veterans(I’m speaking in particular of my father who was an active combat veteran in Vietnam, was point, was lucky enough to have a lung collapse while being overrun during Tet, came back and was a Drill Instructor, (and had Non-existent training while unofficially attached to the ANZAC’s in Jahore Baru, by the Gurkha who taught Jungle warfare. his Medical records say he was in Egypt, which is actually pretty funny because the time he would have been there would have been during the 7 days War how’s that for fact checking ) at Ft. Lewis Washington. When He says that the Government is Violating the oath that Soldiers take to “Uphold The Constitution Of the united States against all enemies Foreign and Domestic” and that He see the Police as Pathetic thugs and has lost sympathy for them because of their Paramilitirization, and this is echoed by Many, Many Veterans, It does worry me. We have talk of secession, Government riding roughshod over local and state rights, Human rights. and a general sense of frustration all around. I must also add that my father is a cautious moderate Conservative, who has Moved more into the Libertarian realm in just the last few years or so. I am of a more far left opinion, but agree that there is an US and Them Mentality being perpetrated,And I don’t know if The Government is actually aware of how much the growth of this sentiment has progressed among the More mainstream, everyday working people and Middle class.
