Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
of course, but the fact remains that quotes like the above are the only thing that the business/political elites that read the WSJ will get, and, just like advertising, this shapes their underlying beliefs.

Leftists = communists = totalitarian
US = WWII victor

Maybe those that read this don't agree that the president cannot be criticized, but in the meantime, they won't challenge the underlying assumption that the War on Terra needs to be fought, and they absorb that the parties of the left were financed by totalitarian communist regimes and thus can never really be trusted.

A lot of people read this. Many won't read it as critically as we do.

In the long run, we're all dead. John Maynard Keynes
