Revisionism and Whitewashing

Since I bought a 42" flat screen high definition television I've been tuning in more to prime time programming. What I found was disappointing and shocking. One show I like is called "Without a Trace." It was pretty much free of any political posturing until the other day. The episode was about a survivor of Katrina. The only government agency mentioned was FEMA and it was in a negative fashion. Then at the end the main character says "it's a disgrace what we let happen to those people." He was obviously referring to FEMA. No mention of the school buses that could have saved all 1,000 or so lives lost. It would have only taken about 16 of those buses to save all the lives. Any rational person knows it was the Mayor Ray Nagins fault. If your house is on fire and no one comes to put it out do you blame the fire department in your town or Washington D.C.?

But the most appalling was an episode on the show "Cold Case." I actually enjoy the show even though it is pretty liberal but the episode called "Red Glare" goes beyond the pale. The bad guys are the patriotic Americans, they're portrayed as thugs (the police chief) ignorant, uneducated, and violent. The "heroes" were the Communist infiltrators. They are portrayed as intellectual, underdogs, and victims. Of course in reality they were part of an ideology that slaughtered 100,000,000 innocent people. It's sad to see the vicious hatred Hollywood liberals have for America and to see their admiration for a genocidal ideology. I'm afraid that in the years to come we're going to lean towards the fascist state liberals so badly want.

Now, if I could only lose the 5 pounds I gained since buying the TV :)

5 Lbs, dude you're just getting started. I bought a 42" LG plasma and between TiVo-ing NFL Total Access and the Wii I'm well on my way to being the poster boy for the American Couch 'Tater

New Orleans didn't have a single person capable of handling such a crises and the people paid for it when they were rounded up like cattle and put in an unsafe building.

And yet the fools re-elected him and congressman Gee-How-Did-I-Get-$100K-Stashed-In-The-Freezer. So I guess it's hard to feel too sorry for them.

Nah, they weren't rounded up like cattle...if they were would have eaten them by now ;) j/k

May people jumped on the federal government about the case in New Orleans, the locals could not do anything right so what makes them think the feds could.

The people in Louisiana are a little different from the rest of us. They think they have done good but sometimes they don't know how.
