@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour I don't believe you've read much history of WW2... if you had you wouldn't have come out with such an uninformed statement!
1st & foremost, George is correct - Britain fought for 2 years on our own & that is what saved the world... & what America conveniently forgets! ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 2. There were more '#British' troops landed on D-Day than #American troops.
The #OmahaBeach disaster was the #Americans fault - They screwed up there as they did in #NorthAfrica, #Sicily & #Italy & in the #Pacific at #PearlHarbour on #Tarawa & #Pelelieu & elsewhere. ...cont
@ChinneryRoy @RT_sputnik @georgegalloway @francisbeckett @GayatriGalloway @RT_com @UKLabour 3. #USNavy CnC Earnest King caused a disaster in the #Atlantic in late 12.'41-05'42 when over 600 merchant ships were sunk in sight of US coast, because he didn't want to take #British Advice.

Hoy, 20 de agosto, fallecía Joseph Levitch, JERRY LEWIS (n. 1926), comediante, actor,
cantante, productor de cine, director de cine y guionista estadounidense.
Su estilo cómico desenfrenado lo convirtió en uno de los intérpretes más populares de los años 50 y 60.

Lewis nació en el seno de una familia de vodevil, y a los 12 años desarrolló un número cómico en el que imitaba a cantantes.

Abandonó la escuela secundaria para enfocar
sus habillidades en el teatro y espectáculos de parodias en clubes nocturnos de Nueva York.

Conoció al cantante Dean Martin por primera vez en 1944, y dos años más tarde se convirtieron oficialmente en un equipo de intérpretes.

Su número consistía en que Dean cantaba

Has anybody revisited the 1962 Sidney Poitier movie "Pressure Point" in light of the persistence of white supremacist politics in our time?…
In one scene, the white supremacists are singing "The Star Spangled Banner," the anthem of the United States, at one of their meetings, with USA & 3rd Reich flags displayed
In another scene, the white supremacist prisoner scoffs at Poitier's suggestion that White Supremacy will fail because it is built on a lie. He says, "This country is built on a lie." He asks if it treats people like "All men are created equal." #film #history #racism
