During the Vietnam War, anti-war activists used several anti-LBJ slogans. This one was the most effective:
Hey, Hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?
A North Vietnam leaflet was published and distributed using the slogan as a way to get young Americans not to fight in the war:
"Hey, hey LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?"
That's what everybody is saying all over the US Today.
And millions of people all over the world who know no other English shout it.
"How many kids did you kill today?"

Do you want to go down in history as one of LBJ'S killers!
Think it over, talk it over. Act together.
Don't let the Babykiller think for you.
It's your head. USE IT, DON'T LOSE IT."
Sen. Barbara Boxer is using a variation of the slogan by claiming that Republican legislation to roll back some environmental regulations will result in the deaths of thousands of people. Here’s what she said:
“They have attached a poison pill — literally, colleagues — because it will kill 8,100 more people more than would have otherwise been killed from pollution.”
Boxer was referring to the Republicans who lessened EPA industrial boiler regulations in the payroll tax cut extension bill currently in the Senate. She argued that lessening the standards will result in arsenic, lead, and mercury poisoning.
The 8,100 number has no basis in fact. It’s from the EPA that has to justify its existence with outrageous environmental claims. There's no way to quantify deaths from boiler emissions. Nobody is doing as a direct result of boiler emissions. In fact, these boilers are already heavily regulated.
But there is a more tangible number that can be cited about the number of people who have died as the result of a government policy that Boxer supports with religious fervor: 1.5 million pre-born babies that are killed every year because of liberalized abortion laws.
Boxer has served in Congress since 1983. That’s 28 years she has been an advocate of abortion. This makes her legally complicit in the death of 42 million pre-born babies.
Then there are the nearly 600,000 deaths and the more than 1,000,000 people in the US who have been diagnosed with AIDS that have occurred as the result of homosexual behavior. When men who had sex with men were dying of a rare cancer began to spread throughout the medical communities, the syndrome began to be called by the colloquialism “gay cancer.” Even though people like Boxer knew there was a causal relationship, she and other liberals would not publicly acknowledge the connection.
