The few, the proud,

The Marines:

brilliant, splendid propaganda.

Joseph Goebbels would have been proud.

[congrats, brad, on earning a Drew for your drooling Godwin-breaking, anti-Americanism]

I suppose that Brad eschews any political advertisements, including for candidates he admires, because that would be propaganda also, would it not? I love the immediate use of the word propaganda in a strictly pejorative fashion, which unfortunately is the norm in today's semi-literate society.

Why would only Goebbels have been proud? Why not Stalin, or Mao?

umm...someone please explain why my statement is anti-American?

Propaganda is not per se a pejorative label. I find the ad impressive.
Your interpretation that my statement is the equivalent of "hating the troops" is actually more revealing of the emotional mind set that you Right Wingers are frozen in.

Oh, I don't know, maybe it was the casual mention of Joseph Goebbels being pleased by the ad. I can't imagine why anyone would find an implied connection between a true believer in Nazism with the Marine Corps objectionable.
