29. PROPAGANDA ALERT
This is the third separate instance in the last six months, where I've read a right-wing shill's insistence that the Youth are turning to Mammon & The Fake Jesus.

There is no outside evidence for an en masse, rightward shift of youth, and the ONLY people who ever say this are the propaganda arms of the GOP. Just like trying to make black people think that the Dems are racist, this is another calculated, lame attempt to use something OTHER than good information to make clueless people join the corpo-fascist tent.

With the blacks, though, like "security moms," it was fear or appeal to emotion.

This is more of a "desire to belong" maniuplation. They're banking on the fact that a few impressionable college kids will identify South Park with some sort of libertarian movement, bringing them into the GOP fold, where they will ACTUALLY be aligning with big government, statist corpo-fascists, theocrats and neoconservatives.

They've been trying this FOREVER. AEI tells me kids are more conservative than their parent. Town Hall tells me that Gen Y is going to vote Republican.

And then we all go home and play "Blood & Entrails 16," on the Playstation and giggle over "Desparate Housewives."

The only thing that I see are people are getting more CLUELESS. Which is synonomous with "Bush Supporter," so maybe this propaganda will work for them.
