Plaque under bust of Stalin created as part of the D-Day memorial in Virginia:
In memory of the tens of millions who died under Stalin’s rule and in tribute to all whose valor, fidelity, and sacrifice denied him and his successors victory in the cold war.
But of course, the right wing Washington Examiner is flogging it as an uncritical tribute to Stalin. Editorial writer Joel S. Gehrke, Jr. has a roughly 500 word piece up about the statue which carefully neglects to mention the words accompanying the bust.
People who engage in this kind of strategic editing of the facts aren’t just mistaken. They’re liars.
