85. A side benefit to Cheney and the Pentagon for their arranged blackout
Edited on Mon Oct-20-08 08:11 AM by higher class
by the media of images or stories about our soldiers is that their parallel agenda has been easy to achieve.

While their agenda of hate baiting continued to be fostered .... they were successful in getting and maintaining blackouts on pictures and stories of the dead that did include young Americans of Mexican*, Middle East, and Black American heritage.

While operatives continued to generate, build, and grow hatred for Mexicans* and Muslims fed by the reverends and the Limbaugh units ..... Black Americans have been targeted by White House policies ... Katrina, housing scams, ending of education programs, school loans.

Without images you can cover up the truth. Whether planned or not, Cheney, the Pentagon, the White House won. We haven't seen photos of these young people except in local papers of small towns where it is difficult to cover up loss in a small community.

* For some people in this country, 'Mexicans' means anyone from south of the border = knowledge of geography is scrambled and it is easy to claim that all illegals are Mexicans. The hate target is focused by using one term for all, even when inaccurate.
