It turns out that we're at the end of history . . . Or, at least, history doesn't really exist anymore.
At least that's the only explanation that makes sense as a former local newsman and several of our progressive friends paint Americans as the bad guy in WWII.
Debating history is boring but this theory has a lot of work to do and doesn't really explain so much about the canon of Indiana Jones movies.
But now facts are mere perspective nowadays . . . I was searching for old school footage of U.S. Army Engineers blowing up a big-ass swastika at Nuremberg and apparently there are a great many nincompoops who claim the Russians did it . . . They didn't.
