There are many recurring themes among the left. Then there are mantras for every leftist, but one that gets passed around, modified, recycled and reused a lot is the “America is evil for having actually used the A-bomb” meme. The jihadists have been using that one, as have socialist and communist governments around the world, for years. At least someone agrees with John Stewart besides a few pimple-faced high school students watching Comedy Central on their parents’ TVs.
Whittle does a wonderful job of refuting this blatant ignorance. “Ooh! Ouch!”
Watch the whole thing. Whittle didn’t even have to mention what the Japanese did in China.
I almost feel sorry for Stewart. Almost, but then I have to think that surely he knew all this stuff beforehand, and was just playing out a shtick on his show. That would be giving him the benefit of the doubt I suppose. Maybe he really is that vacuous.
The left however will be clinging to this worn-out meme for generations to come, no matter how many times it’s proven wrong. As they say; there’s sucker born every minute.
