Politicians get the public to spout the opinion they want to justify oppressing others.

    Politicians strive to influence our thinking, but half the country thinks differently from the other half. Public opinion is terribly manipulated, but there are many who do see what is going on.
     -- David L. Rosenthal, Hollywood

    Umm kinda. Sheeple can be swayed to opine about most anything if the perception is the herd is thinking it. Take Mr. Obamunist Goodwrench the assassin's last election for example. The facts concerning voter fraud and how few votes he really got is not swayed by private opinion. Public opinion ;-(as seen on TV)-; is almost omnipotent in accepting the criminal as their head executive.
