While you can’t fool “all of the people, all of the time,” it is
surprisingly easy to fool a sufficient number of them to get elected.
“People will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you
repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.”
That’s an excerpt from a World War II-era military intelligence
report — a document which explored the psychological profile of one of
our nation’s (and the world’s) most dangerous enemies. It also
represents perhaps the most succinct encapsulation of the modern-day
propaganda method commonly referred to as “The Big Lie.”
Who was the subject of this particular intelligence report? Adolf
And while history is unlikely to witness a repeat of anything
approaching the horrific genocidal barbarism perpetrated by the
murderous Nazi “New Order,” that doesn’t mean American politicians of
both parties aren’t still employing the same propaganda techniques
utilized by its reviled leader.
In fact, after Bush Republicans used “The Big Lie” to grow government
and rack up huge deficits (while telling us they were for “limited
government and less spending”) President Barack Obama is now using it to
expand government further and rack up even larger deficits under the
banner of “hope and change.”
Of course Americans still searching for “hope” amidst our ongoing
economic malaise know that the only real “change” has been the cost of
these lies — which keeps adding up at the expense of our liberties.
How many “Big Lies” has Obama told? Frankly, it’s becoming difficult
to keep track of them.
