For too long, history has been dictated by liberal elites who insist on a “politically correct” narrative of “facts”. Now, from the Land of the Newly Free Now Trump Is in The White House, there is a new “disruptive” agenda with a confrontational attitude to “established discourses”.
In the support of such efforts, The (un)Australian presents “The Alternative Facts of the Day”. It is a short list of just some of the alt-facts from history the elites don’t want you to know. Sad!
1099: The Donald Trump-led Siege of Jerusalem
The year of 1099 marked the Siege of Jerusalem as part of the now-President Donald Trump-led First Crusade to Make Christendom Great Again.
It was the best crusade, just great. A lot of fake news has been published about it. Some claimed the Crusaders massacred Muslims indiscriminately and waded knee-deep in Infidel blood.
But there was no “Muslim” massacre! The Cruasaders simply decided to temporarily massacre those Muslims from Jerusalem on the grounds they were the ones resisting the Crusaders invasion of Jerusalem. In fact, Muslims living in Spain were totally safe! From those particular Crusaders.
Yet liberal historians believe the Infidels! Sad!
1836: The Donald Trump-led victory at the Battle of Alamo
America never used to lose. Until recently, America never lost a battle and there was no greater example of American military might than the victory of the Texan forces at Alamo in 1836.
Freedom-loving Texans stood up to politically correct liberal elites in Mexico’s Big Government who wanted to restrict slavery. When Texans wanted independence, Mexico sent some bad hombres to Texas.
But they weren’t sending their best, and Donald Trump personally led the victorious resistance. After defeating the Mexicans in the Battle of Alamo, Trump then oversaw the building of a giant wall along the border, which lasted more than 170 years until Kenyan-born Barack Obama ordered it torn down. Sad!
1970: Kent State shootings
America used to be a proud nation. A nation that won things. But it has had its dark moments. On May 4, 1970, at Kent State University in Ohio, four patriotic students were cruelly gunned down by terrorists from a joint ISIS-Black Lives Matter cell while the America-loving students waved American flags and sung along to Merle Haggard’s anti-hippie anthem “Okie From Muskogee”.
Yet some liberal elite Social Justice Warriors actually push the conspiracy theory that heroic patriots from the National Guard were involved in the shootings! Sad!
1989: No Exxon oil spill
The year 1989 was marked by many things: the Berlin Wall fell, Madonna’s “Like a Prayer” topped the charts and absolutely no Exxon oil pipeline busts anywhere. Most certainly not in Alaska on March 24, when the Exxon Valdez tanker did not run aground and definitely did not spill 10.8 million gallons of crude over several days.
US Secretary of State and former ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson has been with Exxon since 1975 and he knows about these things. Sure, some political elites want to discredit the new Trump administration with fake news about “fossil fuel-related ecological catastrophes” and a “rapidly developing ecoholocaust tied to the actions of oil giants”. But like so many liberal fantasies, the facts simply don’t meet their scaremongering tales. Sad!
