Fake ‘I Love Yous’

The Point

Fake ‘I Love You’s’ (mp3)

When the disgruntled public gathers to express their disapproval of their government, politicians hide in velvet offices while the protesters face off with the police who could often care less about the issues. The textbook passive-aggressive response is for the cowering politicians to pretend that the public objects to the police instead of the policy makers by saying, “We love the police. Why don’t you?”

While ancient spin tactics undermine the intent of the public, thus breeding conflict, nothing is more insulting to the police than fake “I love you’s” from politicians who roused public dissent in the first place.
