Idiot President Does Something Right

13 06 2007

Idiot-in-chief George W. Bush dedicated a memorial to the victims of Communist atrocity today.  Of course, he couldn’t help but link the horrors of Communism to that of Islamic terrorism. I don’t know if it’s an apt comparison or not, but whatever. The victims of the most murderous ideology ever created by man do indeed deserve a memorial, and I am happy to hear that Congress created one.

Bush ties Cold War to war on terrorism

US President George W. Bush paid tribute to the estimated tens of millions killed under communism at a new memorial to their suffering and linked the Cold War to the struggle against terrorism.

Twenty years after then-US president Ronald Reagan stood at the infamous barrier dividing Berlin and urged the Soviet Union to “tear down this wall,” Bush said Islamic extremists, like Communists, were “doomed to fail.”

His remarks came at the dedication ceremony of a new memorial to the “more than 100 million people” who have died under communism since Russia’s Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

“And like the Communists, the followers of violent Islamic radicalism are doomed to fail,” said Bush, who has often compared Islamist extremists to Germany’s Nazis or Soviet Communists.

“By remaining steadfast in freedom’s cause, we will ensure that a future American President does not have to stand in a place like this and dedicate a memorial to the millions killed by the radicals and extremists of the 21st century,” he said.

The memorial evokes the papier-mache statue raised by pro-democracy demonstrators on Beijing’s Tiananmen Square before they were brutally silenced by Chinese troops in 1989.

Accusing the West of having a “moral blind spot” to communism, backers of the Washington memorial said: “We cannot allow the atrocities of Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Castro to fade into the background of history.”

The non-profit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation was created by an act of Congress in 1993 with the aim of emulating memorials to victims of Nazi totalitarian rule.
