Hijacking the Hollywood Right
Actor and former senator Fred Thompson was on Fox News the other day. He had a lot to say about the anti-war movement. It was pretty much a rehash of what you’d read in a Michael Kelly column (that the anti-war protesters are pro-Saddam). Thompson then questioned the motives of the anti-war groups. No problem there; many of the organizers have agendas that go beyond their publicly stated goals. Of course, the Fox News interviewer didn’t ask Thompson about any hidden agendas of the organization Thompson represents, Americans United (a right-wing group headed by David Bossie and Floyd Brown; click here to see what these two are all about and it ain’t pretty). If it is fair game to look at the hidden agendas of the anti-war movement, then the agendas and people behind the pro-war movement deserve our attention also.
