Those Who Forget History
I don’t care what Bush Jr said, I don’t care who wrote the words for him, and I don’t care what those words are. I’m shocked and horrified that people are eager to proclaim that he’s not so bad after all and that we were all mistaken to detest him, and at least he’s decent. (I could give a ton of links to progressive bloggers who say this shit but I don’t want to give them traffic. I’ll do it, though, if people somehow failed to miss the outpouring of Bush love and need proof).
I’m not going to forget the global economic crisis or the Iraq War that this outlandishly stupid and dishonest piece of work engineered for us. The academic job market in my field is still completely devastated after the collapse of 2007. And this all happened after this fellow robbed the country for 8 years and slathered dishonest pseudo-religious slogans on top. Fuck him and fuck those who are glorifying him in order to engage in their Trump obsession.
