Here's the part that I don't get about the Glenn Beck / Sarah Palin desire to return to a 'time' in American history that was more honourable.
Here's the part that I don't get about the Glenn Beck / Sarah Palin desire to return to a 'time' in American history that was 'more' honourable.
Are they talking about the time ..... :
-when Americans moved west massacring the Native Aboriginal people in the late 1700's and early to mid 1800's?
-when Black persons were held and sold as property (including slave owners such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson)?
-when the USA split into two warring nations (Confederate States and United States) and hundreds of thousands were killed in the bloody Civil War?
-when the USA contrived a phony crisis in order to seize Spanish holdings in the Western Hemisphere such as Puerto Rico?
-when the USA sat out most of World War One as the British and Canadians fought German and Austro-Hungarian imperialism?
-when the USA allowed child labour?
-when unfettered 'free markets' and corporate greed resulted in the Stock Market crash and global Great Depression?
-when the USA sat out much of World War 2 while Britain and Canada alone battled Nazi Germany?
-when the USA continued its apartheid policies of 'separate but equal' and official segregation well into the 1960's?
-when the USA entered into a disastrous war in southeast Asia that saw hundreds of thousands of innocent Vietnamese and Cambodian citizens killed not to mention all of the young Americans who died?
-when college kids such as those at Kent State were gunned down for daring to demand 'PEACE'!
-when political assassination became the American norm resulting in the killing of John F. Kennedy - Robert Kennedy - Martin Luther King?
-when the USA armed the Afghanistan Islamic militants against the Russians with weapons that are now being used to kill American, Canadian and British troops?
-when the USA fabricated claims of 'weapons of mass destruction' in order to have a reason to invade Iraq?
-when the single largest ongoing reason for personal bankruptcy continues to be inability to pay for medical bills?
I am simply curious. What is the 'more honourable' time in American history that Beck / Palin / and their mindless minions want to return to??? ... just asking!
