There’s nothing like some exploitive and fact free propaganda to bring Republicans together in mindless cheering against a phantom and revisionist enemy. On Thursday’s final night of the Republican National Convention, the RNC broadcast what was billed as a tribute to 9/11 victims, but by tying in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis and the Iraq invasion and occupation, resembled more a propaganda news reel that exploited horribly the memories of the victims and heroes of 9/11.
You heard right. The Republicans used the deaths of almost 3,000 of their own citizens and it's heroes during the horrific attacks on NYC and D.C. as political fodder.
Shameless....absolutely shameless....and two weeks before the anniversary no less....
Here's the video, along with Keith Olbermann's response. WARNING: this is graphic material.
