Oil Spills and Propaganda Ploys

By L. Brent Bozell III and Tim Graham March 21, 2014

"The Laramie Project" is an agitprop play compiled from real-life interviews that indicted the entire state of Wyoming as homophobic and therefore responsible for the murder of Matthew Shepard. One character announced it was just like "the Germans who looked the other way are guilty of the deaths of the Jews, the gypsies and the homosexuals."

The play packs a political punch, and the left has seen to it that it has been widely performed at colleges and even high schools across America for years. But last year, the accepted narrative began to unravel. Author Stephen Jimenez produced years of research that argued Shepard's killers Aaron McKinney and Russell Henderson were not heterosexual monsters after all. ........It was a gay-on-gay murder. That would make the political message — the very essence of the play — fraudulent.

"Spill," an agitprop play about BP's 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill that thumps a tub against "the true human and environmental cost of oil."....... Fondakowski....and Wesleyan students traveled to Louisiana and interviewed residents about how they were affected by the oil spill........Liberals expect everyone to agree with them, especially people they see as victims of the petro-industrial complex.....the narrative is designed to suggest oil drilling should be forever abandoned. The left is perpetually using entertainment to serve its anti-capitalist agenda.- See more at:
