So - Channel Surfing tonight, I flip to that new show GLEE CLUB.  Yeah it was on Fox, but so is The Simpsons.  So, I want to give it a fair shake and guess what is the 3rd line of dialogue!


It's a flashback, a high school kid remembers his dad serving in the military and being shipped off to the 1st Gulf War.  This is what he says:

"I remember my dad going to Iraq, back when we were fighting OSAMA BIN LADEN for the first time..."

So, tell me, what is the threshold for propaganda is G-damn county.  Are people just misinformed or dumb or are we that brainwashed where a line like this can make it passed the rewrites, passed editing room, passed the first screenings and onto the air?

Anyone care to even talk about this or are we just content to sit back and let the War on "Terror" continue on it's foundation of lies???

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
