35. Does anyone understand that the media may use cherry-picked persons to demonize topics

 

they wish destroyed? If someone unstable tells the truth where it has been purposely silenced so that no one knows about it, the unstable person becomes a tool of association against the truths those in power wish further demonized/marginalized.

Consider how visibly republicans are attempting to utterly demonize words such as "socialism" and "liberal", so that no one would ever wish to be even considered vaguely associated with them. They've been highly effective as most people consume soundbites and do no further research.

It is merely continuing a trend.

I really don't know who this person is, but there are genuine problems in this country some wish not even be discussed. This week has seen extensions upon both the warrantless wiretapping FISA bill and the indefinite detention without trial or representation bill the NDAA. Get a "nut" to discuss them when no mainstream news agency has even begun to mention them, and they'll appear completely out of context to those who will not then search the internet for "NDAA section 1021", as everyone should. I can't speak for anything else he may have said; didn't see the show.

If Piers Morgan is attempting to conflate "mental illness" with talk of the NDAA, FISA, FBI monitoring of Occupy, DHS involvement in police departments, sales of drones to law enforcement, DHS purchasing millions of rounds of hollow-point munitions, etc., then we MUST discuss these topics until everyone knows them by heart and rejects them utterly.
