This week the NFL revealed that it received 5.4 million dollars from the Department of Defense. A total of 14 teams were paid to promote branches of the military. Most people see this and ask why do we need to pay to promote the military. Everyone supports the military right. Its not about supporting the troops, its pure propaganda. The 5.4 million is really a drop in the bucket compared to the money spent by the DOD in Hollywood for  films and tv series. The pentagon actually has a film liason office which has been headed up by Phillip Strub since 1989. The whole purpose of the office is to propagandize the public and has been doing so since the 1920’s.

I’m all for showing patriotism and supporting the troops. Why are we spending  money on inserting messages into television shows and movies but  the troops will not get the benefits they deserve. For God’s sake the troops are put onto no treat lists by the VA. Some of the troops can’t even get proper body armor when deployed for war but we can pay the Atlanta Falcon’s football team to roll out an American flag and some poor returning veteran and his family. So next time when you’re watching the NFL and you see military this military that its not about supporting the troops. Its paid propaganda period. If the NFL really stood by the troops they would be putting out messages to stop using depleted uranium in the firing systems that are causing a whole plethora of health problems including cancer. Where is the NFL when 22 troops a day are committing suicide. You hear nothing. Its all bout getting people to unconsciously support whatever war the multi national corporations are pushing through the pentagon today.

In November 2001, Karl Rove met with the top Hollywood executive’s to ensure would be putting out a pro war on terrorism message, a pro patriot message. There is nothing wrong with being patriotic, I consider myself a patriot but at a time after 9/11 manipulating people and playing on their emotions is plain wrong. Patriotism should be real, should be natural not make believe. Through this propaganda we eventually invaded a country (Iraq) that had nothing to do with 9/11. On the guise that Sadaam had weapons of mass destruction that were never found. Let’s show real patriotism by standing by the troops so they get the medical care and benefits they deserve.

So remember next time you watch a movie, go to a ball game or see an add on television its not about the troops or patriotism. Its about a message to manipulate your emotions and feelings.
