Transformers II: Supremacy is REAL

Don't forget. Transformers are among us. They come out during soccer games and during the celebration of genocidal killers. Columbus didn't just sail the ocean blue in fourteen hundred and ninety-two. He opened up the Americas to SUPREMACY.

Disguised as exploration. Cloaked in commerce. Manifest destiny. Proselytizing. Call it what you will, supremacy has helped shape our world TODAY.

Do you need another reminder? Peep
President Bush's Columbus Day commemoration:
More than five centuries ago, Christopher Columbus boldly set out on a long and challenging journey across the Atlantic that led the way for exploration of the Americas. On Columbus Day, we celebrate the historic voyages of the Italian explorer and honor his life, heritage, and lasting legacy.

Columbus' brave expeditions expanded the horizons of human knowledge and inspired generations of risk-takers and pioneers in America and around the world. Our Nation is built on the efforts of men and women who possess both the vision to see beyond what is and the desire to pursue what might be. Today, the same passion for discovery that drove Columbus is leading bold visionaries to explore the frontiers of space, find new energy sources, and solve our most difficult medical challenges.

That's real talk. History is how we choose to remember it. History is decided for us: Supremacy becomes exploration. Genocide becomes vision, passion, and legacy. Our nation is built on the efforts of men and how we're told to remember them.

I guess Amerigo Vespucci didn't enslave or kill anyone cause despite the fact that he actually found this place he gets no props.

Cristopher Columbus did not have anything to do with enslaving either, though... As for the rest, "history is a lie agreed on"... I think Hitler said it.
