Happy Birthday, President Nixon!



Today is Richard Nixon's 100th birthday.

Richard Nixon did something nobody else did. He performed an act of Biblical significance. For all his faults, and they were many, this man--this anti-Semite!--singlehandedly saved Israel in October 1973, during the Yom Kippur War, by sending weaponry, when nobody, even Kissinger, wanted to risk it. He sings with the angels. He endured Watergate, I think, as a divine rebuke to keep him from getting too proud of his greatest achievement. May he rest in peace.

  1. Fuck off.
    He literally could have prevented a genocide from happening, and he didn't out of pure racism.
    Worse than Donald Trump.

  2. Thank you for your comment. Truly.

    Can you splain how Nixon.... already up to his neck in Vietnam and on nuke war watch with the Sovs.... could have done ANYTHING to change the events in India/Pakistan/Bangladesh, almost 180 degrees around the planet from the US? Serious question.
