The Memory Hole Leads To A Real Hole

Roger L. Simon » America, the Headless Horseman: "This is a moment when we need a Churchill and what we have is the man who sent Churchill’s bust home — a nowhere man whose only demonstrable skill is fund-raising. (In that way, however,  he was even outdone by Abu Bakr himself who evidently snatched several hundred million for his cause from Mosul banks in one day.)

Today, on Twitter, a veteran named J. R. Salzman tweeted: “I did not get an arm blown off in Baghdad so you could sit on your ass and watch Iraq fall, @BarackObama. I did my job. DO YOUR JOB.” It got retweeted over 2600 times and climbing.  It’s easy to see why.

Imagine, if you will, what it would have been like if Barack Obama had been president during 9/11, not George W. Bush.  We might be under Sharia law by now. What a joke that would be on all the paleo-feminists on college campuses complaining about micro-agressions and other PC illusions.  They’d be walking around in head coverings, if they still had heads."
