New Polls Disprove Contention Americans Wanted Terri To Die
Misleading polls in the days before Terri Schiavo's public execution were obviously a major hinderence to the involvement in the case of more politicians.
Cowards in Congress and elsewhere were more concerned about their approval ratings than preventing the cruel starvation of an innocent woman.
But new Zogby polls clearly tell us that if Americans had understood the true facts of the case they would have responded differently.
NEWSMAX SNIP: By a significant plurality, Americans did not agree with the decision by state and federal courts last week that Terri Schiavo should be starved to death, a new Zogby poll has found. According to a report on the survey by Life News, Zogby pollsters asked: If a person becomes incapacitated and has not expressed their preference for medical treatment, should "the law presume that the person wants to live, even if the person is receiving food and water through a tube?"
Forty-three percent of those surveyed said yes, with just 30 percent saying the feeding tube should be removed.
Zogby then asked: "If a disabled person is not terminally ill, not in a coma, and not being kept alive on life support, and they have no written directive, should or should they not be denied food and water?"
A staggering 79 percent said the patient should not be denied food and water. Just 9 percent said yes.
Zogby followed up with a question about Congress' decision to intervene in the Schiavo case:
"When there is conflicting evidence on whether or not a patient would want to be on a feeding tube, should elected officials order that a feeding tube be removed or should they order that it remain in place?"
Forty-two percent said officials should order that the tube remain in place, with just 18 percent disagreeing.
When told that Schiavo's estranged husband, Michael, "has had a girlfriend for 10 years and has two children with her," 56 percent of Americans said guardianship should have been turned over to Terri's parents.
Just 37 percent disagreed.
Pro-death media bias in the Schiavo case began before the story garnered national attention.
It took the BBC and other British media almost two years to stop reporting that Schiavo was in a coma, only after complaints from outraged readers.
Via cultural brainwashing and Marxist-dominated university education, where students learn that the way to get ahead is to re-gurgitate extreme leftist rhetoric, British citizens have merely learned to repeat the framed debates spoon-fed to them by the media. The same is generally the case in America.
There are no benchmarks of reason, no right and wrong. Everything is an opinion and absolute truth doesn't exist.
This relativist thought process is in reality a thin disguise for the fact that people are lazy and don't want to face the horror of what is happening in the world today, otherwise they would have to do something about it.
Therefore, people aren't just passively conditioned by the media, they are complicit. They buy the slickly packaged poison being fed to them.
Which is why when you tell them that their thinking is a product of brainwashing and cultural peer-pressure, they will disagree. Because to them, they made the choice to think like a bleating sheep and it helps them to identify with the rest of the zombies.----------------------Get Alex Jones and Paul Joseph Watson's books, ALL Alex's documentary films, films by other authors, audio interviews and special reports.
