Bill Whittle: mythbusting Bush, bin Laden, and Obama

Ideas that seem to rise from nowhere and take on a life of their own are often called “memes.” They’re those things that “everyone knows,” but they often fall apart when looked at critically. Anthropogenic global warming is one such false meme, but that’s not the topic for today.

Instead, Bill Whittle looks at several memes associated with the The Long War(1) –“mission accomplished,” and “Iraq was a distraction,” among others– and then smashes them to bits with the Hammer of Facts:

It’s like a current-affairs version of MythBusters.

There’s an old saying that, while we are entitled to our own beliefs, we are not entitled to our own facts, and Bill does a great job using fact to skewer false belief.

(1) My preferred name for this conflict, or maybe “Jihadi War.” “War on Terror” just never sounded accurate.

    The first and primary myth that needs to be confronted daily, especially with the Marxist president and Senate we have, is that government is the source of everything good.

    Destroy that myth and then we can be free to confront others, such as that Islam is a religion.

    I am related to two very hardcore Liberals who to this day still have to have every idea in their heads about society planted there by the far left wings of the Democratic Party. They believe George Bush is the reason why Islamic terrorists hate us and if we would only stop both wars everyone will love us. Trying to talk sense to them is like trying to deprogram a Moonie. Liberalism is a cult!

    As I said earlier on this site, there is nothing so sacred that Duh-1 will not politicize it. It reminds me of the old saying about a politician being someone who will borrow $20 from you, pay back $10, and then say you are even because you both lost $10.
