A few days ago, I wrote a short post: Let's get something straight about George H.W. Bush.
Then I posted another: Bush-41, Zionists, and Neocons.
Now, the time for going easy on him because he just died is over. Frankly, I didn't take it easy on him over the last week because he had just died but because I didn't have time to roll out the basics of his huge crimes against humanity and God.
Jeremy Scahill has released a solid statement on video about the basics on Bush-41's crimes. Let me tell you, he only scratched the surface. There are whole sections not even mentioned. You can look into where he was during the October Surprise and what involvement he had in The Franklin Cover-up. There are even extremely strong reasons to suspect his direct involvement in JFK's assassination. The cover-ups are legion. He was also instrumental in the environmental degradation of the planet. Look into how he handled Monsanto.
Nobody's perfect. I'm not. You're not. Jeremy isn't. That's no reason not to face the facts about George H.W. Bush. If we won't face them, we'll see them repeated only worse.
The national religion of the United States is American exceptionalism. And we are now in the midst of a grotesque canonization of one of its imperial saints, George Herbert Walker Bush. Every media outlet in this country, every politician, Democrat and Republican, engaged in collective eulogy based on lies — lies about who Bush was, lies about his policies, lies about the mass-killing he oversaw during his life at the highest levels of power in the United States government. George H.W. Bush was an unrepentant war criminal who spent the overwhelming majority of his life making the world a worse place — a more dangerous place — and he leaves behind a global trail of tears, of bloodshed, of death and destruction. This is the eulogy that George H.W. Bush should be receiving. But instead, the U.S. and international news media are engaging in sick propaganda. Leave the stories about how classy he supposedly was, how cool his marriage was, how he built a father-son relationship with Bill Clinton, how much he liked Barack Obama, how he always wore those funny socks — leave all of that to the family in their private memorials. But for the rest of us, for the rest of the world, we must remember that his incalculable crimes were committed in public, from the highest chambers of power in the most dominant nation in the world. The accounting for his crimes should also be done in public. If you speak honestly about who George H.W. Bush really was, then you, by necessity, will be indicting the history, the politics, the legacy of the United States. If you speak honestly about Bush, then the myth of American exceptionalism is laid bare.
