After 8 years of George Bush and his neocons destroying our nation in more ways than one, the republicans of our nation are now trying to rewrite those years to make themselves and their party feel better. It is time for we Americans who remember those 8 years very well to not allow them to do this! For instance…
Rush Limbaugh (the leader of the republic party/American Taliban) recently decided to rewrite the definition of a Banana Republic on his radio show when he found out President Obama did an Executive Order allowing Americans to have the freedom to access records of previous presidents (including George Bush, of course). To make himself feel better and to convince his listeners that George Bush’s EO to ban the access to these records/documents of previous presidents is WHAT A DEMOCRACY does, Rush Limbaugh said President Obama has now turned America into a Banana Republic, which as we all know, because of this free flow & access to information!
Another good example would be how Glenn Beck on his Wednesday, February 18, 2009 show (no link available) told his listeners that the people who brought us the economic stimulus plan and global warming are the same people who brought us the Holocaust! Yep, to make himself and his listeners feel better about how George Bush ruled America, Beck decided to put the tree-huggers & hard working Americans into the same category as Hitler, who spent a good portion of the end of his life eradicating the Jews from the planet and who rallied against anyone who was educated or was concerned about the environment!
And then there’s this example: former right winger, Senator Rick Santorum, has decided to slam Islam by saying the Koran was written in Islamic so we Americans cannot read it or have access to it! Yeah, yeah, as Think Progress points out, the Koran was written in Arabic. Oh boy. Of course, I went to my local library a few years ago and took out the Koran and guess what? It was written in English! Yep, it was translated into English just as the Bible is translated into all languages to reach more people. And Santorum thinks he’s the expert on Islam enough to give a lecture on it? Ha! Poppycock!
See? These are just a few examples of how the right wingers of the American Taliban are trying to rebrand and rewrite reality to make themselves feel better.
If you witness a right winger online, on the radio, or on your television trying to rewrite history or trying to rebrand a known term/definition, then please let us know in the comment section! Please make sure if at all possible to leave a link to the quote or article where you found it. Of course, there will be times when you won’t be able to because the comment was made by a caller on the radio and you refuse to pay the $50 to get the link. I won’t hold it against you, because I too refuse to pay Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or any other right winger to have access to their archives! To me it’s the same thing as financing the Nazis during WWII, which is what George Bush’s grandfather, Preston Bush, did and quite honestly…..I refuse to be a part of it.
Also, please let us know if you find the right wingers being HYPOCRITICAL TODAY compared to what they were doing and saying under George Bush for those 8 years. An example would be: THE NEOCONS TOLD US TO LOVE THE PRESIDENT RIGHT OR WRONG, BECAUSE BY DOING SO, MEANS YOU ARE PATRIOTIC AND NOT A TRAITOR, but now, some of these same people cannot bring themselves to worship President Obama. See? Hypocrisy at it’s finest.
Thank you so much in preventing the members of the American Taliban in rewriting/rebranding history to make themselves feel better and by not giving them the opportunity to rewrite George Bush’s 8 years of history too! We appreciate it.
