15. Correct. The only propaganda here is trying to characterize liberal critics as agents of the right.

It's laughable. Pathetic. Dishonest. No one on the right is secretly criticizing Obama from the left. On the contrary, one can easily imagine RW propagandists joining in bashing the "professional left," etc.

But again, questioning everyone's motives is a pointless game. It's just a variation on ad hominem attack, when you've nothing substantive to argue. Don't believe what someone says, because someone else accuses them of being a secret agent. THAT'S a propaganda technique. And a poor one.
