Skip to comments.How Tom Hanks Became America's Historian in Chief (Leftist rewrites history)

To the young Tom Hanks, history was as dull as an algebra equation. For Hanks a classic baby boomer, born in 1956 World War II was just a string of long-ago muzzle flashes in black-and-white. Yet he did have a more direct connection to the global cataclysm. His father had been a U.S. Naval mechanic (second class) in World War II. But Amos Hanks wasn't the type to tell his son tales of bravery and sacrifice. "Growing up, I always knew Dad was somewhere in the Pacific fixing things," Hanks says. "He had nothing nice to say about the Navy. He hated the Navy. He hated everybody in the Navy. He had no glorious stories about it."
Back in World War II, we viewed the Japanese as 'yellow, slant-eyed dogs' that believed in different gods. They were out to kill us because our way of living was different. We, in turn, wanted to annihilate them because they were different. Does that sound familiar, by any chance, to what's going on today?"

OOPS!!! Thanks for the correction.
Just saw this at the market and had to suppress the gag reflex. What an f’in joke! Hanks is such an overblown, overrated jackass. There he is on the cover of Time with that constipated look on his face that he has in every movie he does and that people take for good acting, and there is that ridiculous caption about his “rewriting history.” Good god, have we really sunk that low?
Correction, the “Historian in chief” is what triggered severe nausea. Gee, forget about all the scholars and people who actually study history, and trust it to a Hollywood moron!
You are so right! “Big” was his last sane moment, then he became the serious ac-tor. What a schmuck! His best moments as an actor were as Kip Wilson in “Bosom Buddies.” The moment he took himself seriously, it was all over. I just can’t stand him or his overrated movies. And he always has that look on his face in his movies (and now in life, I guess, judging from the Time cover) like he hasn’t taken a dump in 6 months.
The mother of a friend of mine was a young woman in the Philippines during the war. She HATED Koreans.
