Prosecute the torture.

The Tribune-Review Editorial Board Subtly Misleads. Again

Take a look at this from today:
American taxpayers give more than $70 million a year to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. But as economics scholar Richard W. Rahn points out in The Washington Times, the OECD “has morphed over the last two decades from an organization that promoted trade and growth policies to (one) that pushes for higher taxes, which will reduce economic growth.” As Mr. Rahn wryly notes, your tax dollars are being used to promote higher taxes.” You say you want a revolution? [Bolding in Original]
Now let's go to the wry Rahm:
If a member of Congress told you that he was going to use some of your hard-earned tax dollars to support an international organization that demands that you pay higher taxes, what would you say? Unfortunately, the question is not hypothetical, because that is exactly what is now happening. Congress is giving more than $70 million a year to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), which has morphed over the last two decades from an organization that promoted trade and growth policies to an organization that pushes for higher taxes, which will reduce economic growth. [Emphasis added.]
Did you spot the subtle?  Did you?

I'll give you a hint with some leading questions: Who controls Congress these days?  Which party?  Which faction of which party?

Yea. 

Whoever it is, it ain't the Soros-beholden Democrat party, is it?

Whoever it is (cough-the conservatives who run the Congress-cough cough), the Trib's brain trust hid that entire Tea Party behind the phrase "American taxpayers."

Subtle, huh?
