Here, we see ANY kind of dissent against national war efforts being framed as a form of murder. As such, it effectively makes resistance not only a crime, but also a kind of tacit support for the enemy. This really goes beyond manufacturing consent or making war on protesters by making any kind of uncertainty deviant and unpatriotic. In doing so, it equates critical thought with anti-U.S. sentiments. In the end, it demands absolute support for the nation, its government and thus, its wars.
