Burn in fucking hell was the very first reaction I could muster when I saw a notification on phone telling me George H. W. Bush had died. But come on he wasn’t like Trump, he was a responsible some dumbass centrist dumbfuck on msm would say. Let’s take a look at the horrific legacy of George H. W. Bush and see his body count is up there with the worst fucking dictators of the 20th century.

George H. W. Bush, on top of being an extreme homophobe, he was an extreme racist. In 1964 and 1966, George H. W. Bush ran against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. As president, Bush vetoed the Civil Rights Act of 1990 and National Voter Registration Act of 1992. Source: http://www.ontheissues.org/Celeb/George_Bush_Sr__Civil_Rights.htm

George H. W. Bush’s legacy is one of mass genocide, war crimes, extreme homophobia, racism, and sexism. While there is very little to almost no difference between Democrats and Republicans in terms of foreign policy, a Republican presidency for minorities and women in the United States is akin to the return Mongol armies raping and pillaging Eurasia. George H. W. Bush is not a good man, he should be remembered up there with the likes of Hitler, Pol Pot, Tojo, Mussolini, Pinochet, ever every other US president.
