I got an email from the Washington State Democrats
We are proud to have such strong Democratic organizations on the eastside. And they are hosting one of their most important events on Sunday after the State Convention.
Please join U.S. Representative Adam Smith, candidate for Governor Jay Inslee, emcee Tony Ventrella and other special guests for the 26th Annual Eastside Democratic Dinner.
You’re kidding. The Adam Smith who introduced a bill to legalize government propaganda used against US citizens? What an insult!
“Michael Hastings said Friday the law introduced by Rep. Smith and Rep. Mac Thornberry (R-TX 13th) would “legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences.”
Juan Cole says, “Nothing speaks more urgently to the creeping fascism of American politics than the assertion by our representatives, who apparently have never read a book on Germany in the 1930s-1940s or on the Soviet Union in the Stalin period, that forbidding DoD and the State Department from subjecting us to government propaganda “ties the hands of America’s diplomatic officials, military, and others by inhibiting our ability to effectively communicate in a credible way.” And mind you, they want to use our own money to wash our brains!”
Why would I want to hear Adam Smith or support the party that promotes the stink of fascism?
The Democratic Party has become gutless and degenerate and no longer represents the principles or policies that would earn my support.
