I agree, lets not forget the media either. They have been at the forefront attempting to mold American citizens opinion over the last decade on various obviously liberal issues. They love to attack various conservative organizations especially Christians. In 2006 we had the Danish cartoon riots contrived by radical Muslims to intimidate western media from the right of free speech threatening death and destruction to the Dutch cartoonists and their publishers. Not one fracken' American news organization would stand up for their brothers right to free speech. The American news media is terrified by the thought of an angry Islamic radical on a mission from Allah. Peaceful Christians are fair game though.
