Terror-inspiring Pro-administration Ad Campaign Puts Troops at Risk for Exxon, ideology

A new terror-inspiring media campaign is about to be launched to hype a false dichotomy between those who support the troops and would bring them home, and those who support the troops and are emotionally manipulated into mistaking their support for the troops for the cultural war being waged at home and abroad, a cultural war which is undemocratic, un-American, authoritarian and anti-free speech, anti-free-expression-of-religion, corporatist, etc.

I am surprised to see the CSPAN media announcement for this campaign include an attack on Minneapolis-St. Paul airport taxi drivers. (Perhaps immigrants are the terrorists we will have to fight here, when we stop fighting them over there?)

Nice snippets of emotive, right-wing hysterics: (not exactly a transcript)

"the pro-troop movement"
"stand up to Cindy Sheehan and the antics she was engaged in"
"surrender is not an option"
"time for us to take back our country"
"take our country back from the liberals that want to desecrate it, and defame it"
"the real Americans support our President"
"remember the parasites that are out there, ... the socialists..."
"we know that our enemies are here... Hollywood, Hugo Chavez, Cindy Sheehan, Nancy Pelosi, George Soros, Cindy Sheehan"
