Time Magazine shows again why it is the magazine of choice for Liberal dunces.
This week, Time wants to teach Americans history by naming Israel’s boarding of the Gaza flotilla as one of the top 10 epic sea battles of all time.
Yep, you can’t make this stuff up.
Here is a list of all the sea battles known to historians. Hundreds and hundreds of battles that changed the course of history, but to the history flunkies that write for Time, none of them top the media spectacle they helped manufacture.
Notice that Time would not dare mention one of the most historically decisive battles of all time, The Battle of Lepanto. It took place on October 7, 1571. It was when a coalition of European powers defeated the mighty Ottoman Empire, and so saved itself from being Islamized and having shariah law hoisted upon them. Islam has had to wait another 440 years to accomplish that, and has done so without firing a shot.
No doubt Time found the loss by their Islamic heros too unfortunate and depressing to mention.
To make themselves feel better they substituted the Battle of Lepanto with the ‘Sea Shepherd Vs. Japan’ skirmish that nobody remembers.
That was the story about a boat-full of environmental wackos who harassed some Japanese whalers. It netted the enviromentalcases millions of dollars in donations from Liberal stooges so that they could forward their radical Leftist cause.
For Time Magazine, Leftists and terrorists behaving like jerks or savage barbarians, that’s high-seas glory, baby!
According to the moonbats rewriting history for Time magazine, the sinking of the Lusitania, which helped bring the USA into World War I, does not qualify as one of the all-time top 10 clashes at sea. Neither does the sinking of the Bismarck, which was key to establishing Allied naval superiority in World War II. What does make the list is a publicity stunt by a pathetic collection of pro-terrorist moonbats calling themselves the “Freedom Flotilla.”
