The Spitting Image (video)

Nov 6, 2008
Michael Hogan

"The Spitting Image" is a book that tackles the American propaganda myth that Viet Nam veterans were spit on when they arrived at San Francisco airport. How is such propaganda propagated? Sly Stallone\'s Rambo character claimed he was spit on in a Rambo movie. According to the meticulous research of sociologist Jerry Lembcke, the myth of returning soldiers being spit on is totally false, as all myths are. To understand the thoroughness of sociologist Lembcke\'s research, please read his book, "The Spitting Image."
