“History is no longer History. The Truth is no longer the Truth, and even facts are replaced by alternative ‘facts’, motivated by conspiracy theories and horrible things. In Florida, young students learn that slaves developed skills that could be applied to their own benefit. The entertainment industry is not immune to this rotten disease. The Duke, or John Wayne, famously said of Native Americans ‘I don’t feel bad about robbing them of this great country. There were a lot of people who needed land and the Indians were selfishly holding them back.’ The lie has become another tool in the charlatans’ arsenal. The former president lied to us 30,000 times during the four years he was in office and continues to gain ground in his new campaign. With all these lies, he can’t hide his soul. He attacks the weakest, destroys the gifts of nature and disrespects people, for example using words like ‘Pocahontas’ turning the name into an insult.”
