    This is what activists are taught to do, and this is what I see every day (of course it's toned down on the DN, but still here in comments etc):
    From Defend the Family: Crafting Gay Children
    "...Harvard commencement address Aleksander Solzhenitsyn indicted America’s mass media for the betrayal of its office: The press can both stimulate public opinion and miseducate it..."

    Activists are taught to:
    "...silence those who disagree with the agenda, demonizing them by associating opponents with...murderers, racists and the like."
    "...demonizing those they cannot 'desensitize.' ...how to depict...”

    "[Following our techniques] propagandist advertisement can depict...(people supporting traditional marriage) as crude...people who say...shameful epithets—who are ‘not Christian.’ It can show them being criticized, hated, shunned."

    From CNA: "...combat “head-on” religious organizations opposed to homosexual causes and to take “active measures” against them.

    From CNA:
    Bohnett "advised an 'aggressive response'...a 'pre-emptive campaign' that anticipates the arguments of..opponents and undermines their credibility.' Going after "…Catholic, Mormon, and evangelical churches.."
