LRC pick
‘Support our troops’ really means ‘shut up’
As pro-war blogger Jan Bear admitted in another context about mind control:
Language degenerates into a series of thought-stifling clichés which encourages other actions that are consistent with the ideology of the cult...
What Ms Bear doesn’t say is that there are obvious parallels to the misuse of the military and indeed of her own church as a quick trip online (‘Sergianists, ecumenists and world Orthodox, oh my!’) will turn up.

The Palestinians and Iraqis aren’t cults; they’re nations who want to get rid of foreign invaders and occupiers.
