Shut up, and support our troops

This piece on NPR last night by Bob Sommer resonated with me. He highlighs yet another example of folks who want one thing to happen but can't come right out and say it, so they claim to be interested in something else. Part of what he said:

"Support our troops" is a code. ... Those who presumably need to be admonished to support the troops are those who oppose the decisions of the adminstration. "Support our troops" means then, that we should be supporting the war. I believe that most yellow magnet bearers want support not just for the troops but for the mission, the presence, the president. Maybe the magnets should say, "Shut up, and support our troops".
