Sad to say, most people in this country believe that a movie or TV program which claims to be “inspired by a true story” is hard fact. That’s how they “learn” their history.
Sooo true. A ‘tard acquaintance was spouting off among a group of friend about how the evil Republicans had tried to prevent civil rights back in the 1960s.
I cut him off, bluntly. “Steve, you obviously don’t know anything about politics or history.”
It brought peels of laughter from the rest of the group. It’s become a tag line. I pointed out that it was the Southern Democrats who were the main forces opposing the civil rights act. And that making such an error was not a little oversite, it demonstrated a complete ignorance of one of the main threads of American history, going back to the civil war.
How could you have read even a little history and think it was the GOP that fought civil rights. While I’m not a big Beck fan, I will say he is doing a huge service to the country to teach history on TV every day.
The thing about ‘tards is that, well they are ‘tarded. And even after you point out facts to them they will either forget it after the next bonging binge, pretend it never happened, or move on to another subject.
Steve’s latest insight was that Islam is just another religion and Christianity is equally violent. Yes, there’s your public school educated for ya.

Man, you are singing my song! The attempt to prove a truth based on something they saw in a movie!!! AAuuugggh!!!!!
