Tokyo Rose Redux

The Muslim Question, Lance has an interesting comparison between WW2 Japanese propagandists and Democrats. Here's a quote from David Horowitz:

"During World War II, the Japanese...gave their psychological warfare script to their famous broadcaster 'Tokyo Rose' and every day she would broadcast this same message packaged in different ways, hoping it would have a negative impact on American GI's morale. What was that
demoralizing message? It had three main points:

  • Your President is lying to you.
  • This war is illegal.
  • You cannot win the war."

—David Horowitz
