Condemning the Neocons: classic propaganda

Reader comment on item: A Neo-Conservative's Caution

Submitted by John (United States), Mar 9, 2005 at 14:35

The greatest danger this world faces is the fact that mainstream thought in both Western and Eastern civilizations (without exception) blame the actions of Islamist terrorists on the victims of terrorism. As long as this ideology exists, Islamists will continue to manipulate the people of the Middle East - empowering their propaganda and support base.

Neocons do not support Christian suicide bombers. Neocons do not give money to preachers who make hate speeches. Neocons do not gain power by physically intimidating (threats, kidnapping, murder, etc...) their democratic opponents.

The left and the Islamists are collaborating in a smear campaign against neocons. They oversimplify and repeat their accusations over and over again. It is a classic propaganda campaign.

...and this comes from someone who for the most part doesn't like neocons...
