Those who do not learn from history are doomed to look very, very stupid

Tongodeon points out the Air Force’s fetching new slogan:

Someone has clearly not been paying attention to history, even military history. That’s a direct translation of Germany’s Über Alles, which I’m not going to even provide a google link to because it leads to all sorts of racist retardness that might get people who read this at work in trouble. (Instead, please accept this link to The Dead Kennedy’s California Über Alles.)

The Nazis weren’t the original context of the quote, it’s from a poem in 1841 Germany, but you still have to wonder WTF the air force public affairs officers who came up with that were thinking.
