A few words about Ronald W. Reagan...

Ronald Reagan is being hailed as the greatest thing to "Conservatives" since the McCarthy era. He is also being slandered by "Liberals", left-wingers, anarchists, communists, socialists, people with AIDS, etc. as a racist, homophobe, xenophobe and a White Supremacist. In short, nothing could be further from the truth from either point of view.

Enola Gay protestor to be sentenced 6/18

"I am sorry to say, I had helped build nuclear weapons for 23 years at Rockwell International. Now I am a grieving pacifist"

Peace activist and former nuclear weapons builder, Thomas Siemer, is scheduled for sentencing in the Federal Court House in Alexandria, VA on June 18. Siemer took part in a protest of the unveiling of the Smithsonian's revisionist display of the Enola Gay bomber back in December. The plane in question dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, a civilian target, incinerating the entire city and some 100,000 residents.

Siemer threw a small jar of red paint at the bomber symbolizing the blood spilled by the Enola Gay and other B-29 bombers. He was promptly arrested and suffered a heart attack during the trip to jail.

Read the full article for Siemer's personal statement which includes details of his arrest.

Reagan, Race and Remembrance

Many of us who read this site were deeply affected by the Reagan administration in our formative years. His death has created a parade of salutes and tributes without any critical reflection on the real impacts of the Reagan administration. As we continue to cope with this instance of the whitewashing of American history, I hope we will take the time to carry on the oral tradition of speaking our truth about the Reagan legacy and it's divisive parallels to Bush.

Many young people don't have a clue about the contradiction between the reality of the Reagan years and this parade of propaganda. There may never have been a clearer instance of across the board lying by the corporate media in the United States of Amnesia. But we've got alternatives to promote. This past week's programming at www.democracynow.org is truly enlightening of the Reagan years. Please also see this piece from blackcommentator.com -- one among many critical obituaries that need to be heard. It's challenging, but that what history is for, to challenge us to do better.
