Being nice to the retarded kid who's moving out of town is one thing: flaying history and reality alive in an attempt to make the retarded kid sound like Einstein is something else entirely.
The indispensable Rude Pundit catches it and exposes every criminal lie.
You remember how, right after the 9/11 attacks, we were all scared shitless and the White House was telling us to stick our heads between our legs and kiss our asses good-bye because brownish people were going to fuck our shit up with their exploding shoes and nuclear suitcases o' doom? ... You remember all that? That sense of panic and imminent demise? Yeah, well, fuck you, 'cause you're wrong. It was actually a serene time.
At least according to Admiral Mike Mullen, Chair of the Joint Chiefs, who, during Tuesday's military parade in "appreciation" of President George W. Bush, said in his lubricious hummer of a speech, "After this nation was attacked by a rising evil, the same evil which later murdered many others in places like London, Madrid, Islamabad and Mumbai, you quickly led us from the grip of fear to a serenity of purpose and unity of action - serenity well beyond our dreams on September 12th, when all thought further attack was not only likely, but gravely imminent. And through your vision, a new national security was rendered to reach our enemies where they hid and trained and celebrated deadly crimes."
Now that's some motherfucking historical revisionism: the man who pogo-sticked around the country on September 11, 2001 like a hyperactive toddler on the run from the boogeyman actually was achieving some kind of Zen state of retarded enlightenment that allowed him to clear his head and pronounce, "I'm gonna attack a country that had nothing to do with those planes." Seriously, this is like a rapist-murderer being honored for his belief in safe sex.
This crap has just started. Every move President Obama makes will be met with a fairy tale of how the heroic and divine Dubya handled a much greater difficulty so brilliantly, every setback met with fantasies of how every bad thing could have been avoided if only the perfect 43 were still in charge.
Dismissing it as the ravings of the criminally insane will only allow the poisonous meme to survive and thrive, until it is enshrined in our grandchildren's textbooks.
Don't wait until it's too late. Fight the historical revisionism wherever you find it. Memorize and repeat this mantra:
George W. Bush is a war criminal who shredded the Constitution, ruined the military, smashed the economy, accelerated environmental collapse and damn-near destroyed the country.
Read the Rude One's whole rant. X-rated.
