Apparently, the Young Conservatives just love drumming up a moronic standard for how awesome their beloved savior, George W Bush, is. And the ONLY argument they can ever seem to come up with for comparing him favorably to President Obama is that he loves the troops…
Are you kidding me!?!
These intellectually dishonest comparisons were made from social media postings on the Fourth of July. The first two that follow were from Barack Obama’s Facebook and Twitter
I suppose a President wishing a Happy Fourth of July to ALL Americans just isn’t patriotic enough for the Teapublican morons on the right. Nope! There has to be pandering on an issue that isn’t even an issue. According to them George W. Bush is a greater American because on the Fourth of July he honors Veterans…
Ya know what really pisses me off? When these hackjob fascist nutjobs take something as uniting as the day our country was founded (because guess what – no real fireworks actually went off on July 4, 1776 – that is just the day we signed the Declaration) and try to turn it into some partisan political BS, especially when they’re using MY uniform, MY fellow countrymen’s sacrifices, MY friends that are buried 6 feet under for an illegal war!
Since we’re making comparisons between the two Presidents I’ll pile on.
I’m a veteran of both wars. I can’t stand Bush. I take issue with things the current President has done also. But I absolutely loathe Bush!
Bush and Cheney are both wanted in international court for war crimes. So are a few other higher ranking members of their staff!
Bush even has outstanding warrants in the state of Vermont for his war crimes. Imagine that!
Bush killed at least 100,000 people in Iraq (and that’s a conservative estimate), including thousands of US Service members. Bush ordered the torture of thousands of people around the world for being suspicious – because we didn’t even need evidence or proof, just our own damn suspicions. And don’t even get me started on “enhanced interrogations”!!
If “enhanced interrogations” were so goddamn legal why did we prosecute a US Soldier for torture when he did it in Vietnam in 1968 when all he was using was “enhanced interrogations”? Why? Why did we demand that other countries who waterboarded our soldiers also get court-martialed for torturing prisoners?
Oh, but let’s turn a blind eye when it’s our Lord and Savior ‘Dubya’…
Ya know what a lot of veterans think. A lot of veterans I know think that Bush was a war-mongering POS who deserves to pay the price for his war crimes. I hope he, Cheney, and every other member of his administration get dumped on the Hague’s front door.
I’m not a fan of Obama – he’s too conservative for my taste. That’s not even a joke. But I’ll be damned if you try to elevate Bush to any level higher than scum.
But you know what really irks me is you. Yes, you Young Conservatives. American propaganda junkies. You don’t care about us. You don’t care about the military. You don’t care about veterans. We’re talking points. We’re brownie points. We are just the next conversation piece to prove who’s more “murican”. Stop! Just stop!
You don’t rate! And if you don’t know what that phrase means it means you never served – so stop using my service, my sacrifice, and my uniform for your stupid propaganda piece. Because you don’t care. You never did and you never will. You sent us to war. You killed a bunch of my friends so that Cheney and his friends could profit handsomely. You spent TRILLIONS of dollars to help build up a country that all of us over there knew was going to fall the moment we pulled out – that means ISIS is Bush’s fault! But you won’t spend a tenth of that on giving us proper healthcare. You don’t care about us. So shut the hell up and stop waving that flag around like it means something to you. Stop displaying pictures of my uniform and “Support the troops” stickers. Because you don’t really mean it. Quit using my military to shove your hardcore right wing religion down my throat. You don’t care. You never did. You never will.

It is a peculiarity of the development of American fascism that at the present stage it comes forward principally in the guise of an opposition to fascism, which it accuses of being an “un-American” trend imported from abroad.
You are fascist nitwits. You are ruining this great Republic that I bled for. And Obama isn’t the one to blame, unless we want to be mad at him for not pressing charges of war crimes against Bush. I would have!
I hope your fourth was wonderful. No matter who you are. Because it’s a day for all Americans to come together and celebrate our
freedoms dwindling preconceived notions propagated from a young age in a Prussian-model school system designed to create unquestioning drone soldiers.
The fourth is for every citizen, not just veterans. You want to honor veterans? Do it with your actions. Do it appropriately. That means DO something – maybe on Veteran’s Day.
