Demagoguery Substitutes for Debate


VP joust wasn't even bad theater. It was a sham.

by Stephen Lendman

When is a debate not one? When it's not intended to be. When theatrical blather substitutes. When demagoguery takes center stage.

On October 11, it showed up prominently in Danville, KY. Centre College played host. ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz moderated 90 minutes of film flam. 

Unmentioned was her close Washington military/intelligence establishment ties. She supports America's right to bomb, invade, ravage, occupy, colonize, and exploit one country after another. Her loyalty got her prominence Thursday night. Call it spoils sharing for services rendered.

Like all so-called political debates, Biden/Ryan was prescripted theater. Demagoguery best describes it. Democrat and Republican candidates represent wealth, power, privilege, and imperial lawlessness.

They spurn public need, democratic values, and right over wrong. They represent the worst of a morally degenerate nation. They govern one not fit to live in.
