In response to Obama gets rolled everywhere from Beijing to Tehran:
Did you know that if you don’t support Obama’s nuke deal with Iran you just may be shamefully rooting for the other team? Apparently, “a crack team” of propagandists at a progressive think tank have been pushing that line of attack against critics of the Iran deal, since early last summer.
As is usually the case with progressive media tactics, no small amount of projection and hypocrisy is involved.
Previously undisclosed documents from the Truman National Security Project reveal an organization plotting to brand skeptics of the Iran deal as unpatriotic warmongers. The idea being that the rubes out there across the fruited plains may not like book learnin’ – but they shore love their ‘merica – so if you don’t support the president’s Iran deal, you must be rooting for the other team.
Details of the Truman National Security Project’s campaign to sell the public on an Iran deal before it has even been signed comes just a day after the Washington Free Beacon revealed more recent emails from the group enlisting its associates in an “all-hands-on-deck effort to support” the White House’s diplomacy with Iran.
No matter how terrible the deal is, that “crack team of writers” will be deployed to characterize it as a win-win, and critics as unpatriotic creeps not rooting for America.
The internal emails exposed Truman’s effort to assemble a “crack team of writers” who could flood national and local media outlets with articles supporting an Iran deal ahead of the Nov. 24 deadline.“Our community absolutely must step up and not cede the public narrative to neocon hawks that would send our country to war just to screw the president,” Graham F. West, Truman’s writing and communications associate, wrote in the email.The new documents establish that Truman’s efforts to sell an Iran deal in advance date back to at least the summer.“If there’s a deal on or before July 20, this is going to be a #BFDeal, so start prepping now,” David Solimini, Truman’s vice president for strategic communications, wrote in an internal “guidance for communicators” distributed to Truman allies.“As you can see, I’m advising an aggressively outcome-focused approach,” Solimini wrote in the document, which goes on to provide talking points and “good lines” that Truman associates can use to bill the White House’s talks with Iran as a “win-win” situation.Solimini also advises that Truman associates accuse congressional skeptics of not “rooting” for an American win.
Those like the Washington Examiner who have been watching the negotiations closely and see a very bad deal unfolding, are described as “shameful” because “they’re against any deal before even knowing what it is,” according to Solimini’s document.
