Old leftists are some of the most unhappy, dissatisfied people on earth. Therefore, they want to attack anything that gives anybody else the happiness or stability they lack.

Just in time for Independence Day, an old lefty teacher has trotted out a bunch of tired canards about the American Revolutionary War.
Writing for a website called The Zinn Education Project, the teacher, Bill Bigelow, also manages to criticize American firework displays on the Fourth of July because “the United States is waging war with real fireworks around the world.”
Bigelow claims that “U.S. drone attacks have killed at least 2,600 people in five countries, including as many as 247 children” since 2001. He also charges that the Iraq War began in 2003 with “shock and awe” – which is a lot like fireworks, sort of – and has created “seemingly endless internecine fighting.”
