Every amphibious landing in WWII was a "D-Day."
It meant the date of the invasion, and "H-Hour" meant the scheduled time the first GI would set foot on enemy or occupied territory.
My late father was at the Okinawa D-Day on 1 April 1945 (also April Fool's Day and Easter Sunday), our first landing on Japanese soil during WWII. For weeks afterwards, he watched kamikazes fall around his ammunition ship, the USS Mayfield Victory, like fiery hailstones. In all the stories he told me about WWII, not once did he mention any of the things King Goerge says we're fighting for today.
6 June 1944 was the D-Day that began the liberation of an entire continent from the ancestors of today's GOP...
...and, boy, was King Goerge's grandpappy pissed.
According to classified documents from Dutch intelligence and US government archives, President George W. Bush's grandfather, Prescott Bush made considerable profits off Auschwitz slave labor. In fact, President Bush himself is an heir to these profits from the holocaust which were placed in a blind trust in 1980 by his father, former president George Herbert Walker Bush.
Europe is finally returning stolen art works to their Jewish owners' families. When will King Goerge do the right thing with his share of the warbucks?
And some of you make fun of me for saying slavery has never been far from the minds of American capitalists.
And whilst I'm revisiting rethuglicon history...
Who Gen. Smedley Butler was, how he literally saved America from rethuglicon fascists who seriously intended to overthrow FDR just weeks into his first term...
...and why FAUXNEWS would not hire him today as a military expert
And on a somewhat lighter note
Charles Durning, one of my very favorite character actors, was a combat engineer, landed on Omaha beach on D-Day, and later survived the Malmedy massacre (of US POWs by nazi SS troops) during the Battle of the Bulge.
How many Silver Stars and Purple Hearts does King Goerge have? Oh, that's right, he's still AWOL from the TX ANG.
Last year, D-Day movie Saving Private Ryan was too evil to show unedited on ABC
Now we have this "rap" video made by King Goerge's chrixtain soldiers about their roles in his holy war of lies for oil, world conquest and Jesus, and stuff. (Warning: this is much more graphic than SPR.)
