34. Of course, we were all accused of being Saddam Lovers and Useful Idiots by Bush

supporters also for daring to WANT FACTS and for suspecting that we have war mongers in this country, mostly on the Right, see McCain and Fox these days eg, of whom we need to be very, very careful. They will ANY excuse to start another war, we said, and we were called many things, 'Traitors', 'Terror Supporters', 'Saddam Lovers'. But that was coming from the Right.

It is shameful to see these same, very familiar, epithets and phrases aimed once again Liberals, only this time on DU.

'Useful idiots', I remember it well. Thanks for the bad memories. And we were right, Liberals, but not good being right when the powers that control these things, set out to silence people who dare to not go along for the ride.

Ten years from now, liberals will be proven right again. Which is why Liberals are always the targets of these propaganda tactics.

Perhaps you explain why you consider liberals to be 'useful idiots' rather than using old Iraq War supporters talking points, this is a Democratic Forum where many of us remember these talking points well.
