Students, faculty to protest "Improving the Human Condition Award" that is still going to... George W. Bush

wtf moments 2013

Who better to receive an "Improving the Human Condition" award than the lying fool who couldn't wait to start a fraudulent war with Iraq that resulted in mass death, torture, and both physical and psychological maiming of thousands upon thousands of people, both Iraqis and Americans alike?

Some humanitarian.

If it weren't so horribly and offensively inappropriate and utterly disgraceful, it would be funny. Almost.

The University of Denver spokesperson defended the decision by saying that university is "a place where civil discourse should occur." What about uncivil actions? What about uncivil death and destruction? What about uncivil deception? What about uncivil swaggery lawbreaking?

(DENVER) — Students, faculty and alumni at the University of Denver plan to protest when the university’s international studies school presents an award to former president George W. Bush next week.

Bush will be recognized Monday evening at a fundraising dinner in Denver both for his service as president as well as efforts to fight HIV, cervical cancer and malaria in Africa. The Josef Korbel School’s decision has outraged many at the school who fault the 43rd president for starting the war in Iraq and allowing the use of torture on prisoners. [...]

He’s tarnishing Korbel’s name in an attempt to rebrand Bush as a positive character,” said Sara Fitouri, a Korbel and law student at the university who plans to attend the protest.

    Apparently no Iraqis votes were counted.
    This is almost as obscene as Dubya BBQ photo op with Veterans who lost limbs in Iraq.

    Obama got a Nobel Peace prize for doing essentially nothing, so why not Bush? Let's honor the village idiot who screwed us all with a phony war for profit.

    Why not give Bernie Madoff a "Financial Planner" of the year award. Fuck it, lets posthumously award Ariel Castro "Baby Sitter" of the Decade! When does rewarding failure, criminality, & ignorance end?
