Australian Murdoch propagandist and blogger Andrew Bolt of Melbourne’s ‘Herald-Sun’ newspaper has published a piece that links to the ‘read after death’ letter of 19-year-old British trooper Cyrus Thatcher who recently was killed in Afghanistan.
Bolt deliberately aims his piece at the right-wing bloggies that comment at his blog successfully stirring up pro-Western right-wing schmaltz to such an extent that it borders on vomitous to actually read. Any attempt at a dissenting view at his blog is immediately pounced on and, if it gets too close to the truth, Bolt simply refuses to publish it.
Read some of the comments. You have to wonder if these people are actually for real.
