Propagandists have long believed that if you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. And thus we see increasing numbers of Americans who believe President Obama is a Muslim, or at least not a Christian.
Never mind that The Washington Post recently ran a lengthy article quoting evangelical ministers who regularly counsel and pray with the President—the Limbaugh/Beck crowd refuses to accept the facts.
But the demonization of Barack Obama extends far beyond religion; it’s particularly blatant when it comes to the economy. Is he a socialist? That’s virtually an accepted fact by the right wing – but try telling that to the left wing!
