OK all I can think when I hear things like this is this fantastic quote:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”     -Joseph Goebbels

You to start to wonder if the idiots making these kinds of public statements also believe the crap that is spewing from their mouths or if they actually know what is going on and believe the people to be so stupid in this day and age where you really can’t control the flow of information no matter how great your firewall is.
