For a man whose son became one of the most polarizing, controversial and even hated figures in U.S. history, a mouthful of pizza may not be worth a mouthful of profanity.
At an unidentified pizza shop visited by George H.W. Bush recently, one of the customers decided to give the former president a slice of his mind, replete with generous toppings.
“Murderous, Zionist piece of shit,” the man said as he filmed the scene. Bush’s entourage of guards quickly turned and began walking toward the camera.
Zionism is a Jewish political movement that ultimately led to a reestablishment of Jewish sovereignty over the lands of ancient Israel.
“You won’t get your new world order, guys,” he continued, an apparent reference of Bush’s use of the term in his 1991 State of the Union address.
The term “new world order” originated with an analysis of world affairs and preponderance of what it would take to bring about a lasting global peace, published by celebrated author and life-long socialist H.G. Wells in 1939. Wells called for “a rational consolidation of human affairs” under what he perceived to be the rapidly approaching mantle of global governance and what he called the failure of dictatorship by proletariat.
It has since become a favored term of both heads of state all over the world and political activists fighting the erosion of national sovereignty in the face of globalism’s growing influence.
“Are you happy for the millions of deaths you’re part of?” the man continued. “People know. People are waking up to the reality of this, Mr. Bush.”
“That’s unnecessary,” one of the guards says as he edges the man out of the store’s front door.
“No, it isn’t unnecessary,” the cameraman replied. “The guy is responsible for killing millions. If you knew anything about real history …” he trailed at the clip’s end.
After this debacle, Bush may think again before strolling into random pizza joints.

Kris Kobach ridiculed after losing comeback bid in Kansas: ‘Adios amigo’
Former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is the projected loser of the state's Republican primary for the U.S. Senate, the Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Kobach, a longtime crusader against immigration, headed up President Donald Trump's so-called "voter fraud commission" before it was disbanded after failing to identify any widespread instances of fraud.
Kobach unsuccessfully ran for governor in 2018.
Here's some of what people were saying about Kobach's defeat:
Maddow reveals the ‘shocking sign’ the White House may be betting Trump is going to lose in 2020
MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow returned from vacation to host the Tuesday evening edition of her MSNBC show.
Maddow noted, "in 91 days we all get to decide if the guy who's currently in charge of how we're responding to this epidemic should stay in the job for four more years or if Democratic candidate Joe Biden would do better at this."
"It's honestly hard to know what it will be like for a president to stand for re-election with 200,000 dead Americans as a key metric from his first term, while he asks for a second term, but we're going to talk tonight about how some of that is going to work and some of what we can see coming down the pike," she explained. "And a lot of it is very worrying, in terms of the institutions of our democracy and what we count on to keep us a constitutional republic."
Trump may break with ‘presidential norms’ and give GOP convention speech from the White House lawn: report
On Tuesday, The Washington Post reported that Republicans are exploring the possibility of President Donald Trump giving his presidential re-nomination speech from the South Lawn of the White House.
"The decision to stage the most high-profile political event of Trump’s reelection campaign at the national seat of presidential power would be just the latest break by Trump in presidential norms, which have historically drawn clear lines between official business of the president and campaign events," reported Michael Scherer and Josh Dawsey. "People involved in the planning said that no final decision had been made on the location of the Republican convention’s celebratory events. Trump abandoned plans to hold the full convention in Charlotte, and later Jacksonville, Fla., over concerns that large crowds could spread the novel coronavirus."
