The greatest of all Americans, Ronald Wilson Reagan, had saved America once again. As one would expect, his triumph angered pointy-headed historislamunistofascists and their fellow travelers. They produced their own histories, traitorous histories that denied the beauty, the genius, and the glory of this divinely-inspired and perfectly executed operation.
Indeed, historislamunistofascists spread such blood libels as:
- In an effort to curb public anger against the Gipper after the Beirut Bombing, the administration rushed to begin the invasion before planning was complete. Preparation was so incomplete, they argue, soldiers were issued tourist maps of the island because military maps were unavailable. Communications were so bad, some commanders had to use calling cards at payphones to speak to their superiors in the States.
- Bad planning resulted in casualties. Of the nineteen soldiers and sailors who were killed in the invasion, four Navy SEALs drowned when they were dropped from helicopters too far off shore to reach the beach. Many of the others were killed after stumbling onto enemy positions that were not marked on their tourist maps.
- The tiny island of Grenada was not a threat to the United States.
- The students at the trickle-down-style medical school were in no danger until after the invasion began.
We have Cuba, we have Grenada, and we also have Nicaragua at the time,that are all communist and they're kind of close to the United States. So it could be that it causes a problem for the United States if they wanted to come to us and wanted to maybe make us a communists, right.Docent after telling children that the media reported on the invasion before it began:
They [the media] can't have any consequences for what they did; however, just because they have the freedoms, do all of you think they they should have used that freedom?Docent:
I'm here to inform you that we lost nineteen soldiers in the fighting. Now, we can't directly say that's because of the press, but did it help that they released the story? No, it certainly didn't help.Docent:
Now, it is time for me to take you into the press room for a press conference. That means you're going to see the press [classmates who play reporters in the simulation]. I ask you to be polite, but point out to them that maybe their actions had some consequences.Exchanges between kids who played administration figures and those who played the media:
[Media kid:] "We have freedom of speech. Right? Right?During the simulation, a child playing Our Holy Gipper went off script and ordered the military to rescue the medical students but not invade. An actor rebuked him via video, saying:
[Admin kid:] "You killed people! You killed nineteen soldiers. How would you like to be killed?"
The U.S. government will only overthrow the government of another nation if it believes that nation poses a direct, specific threat to America's safety. In 1983, President Reagan decided that Grenada presented such a threat and ordered a full-scale military operation to replace Grenada's hostile communist government with a friendly democracy.Here is the complete show:
