What are your sources, trustyoursources, and why do you trust them?

Thats just a witty title I came up with once I decided to publish my first documentary. Hopefully there are more to come.

It's still a legitimate question. What sources, if any, have you used to create your mockumentary? As far as I can tell it was pulled straight from your arse. Would you dispute that statement?

Ok that is a fair question it was not my arse but my brain and also google and clips mostly of youtube.
You need to be more specific please.

JFK was made POTUS the same year that I joined the RAF. His part in WW2 was as the lowest rank of US naval officer, skippering a torpedo boat in the Pacific.

In this instance, at least, I will go with my memory of rather than your imagination or attempt at mock history.

Since your version seems so ridiculous ridicule rather than scepticism seems more appropriate here.

Nope, that's not the reason why.
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

Thanks for the honest response. Translated: You came up with an imaginary narrative and put together a video to promote it. Anti-historical fiction, then.

Is your intent to observe people's reaction to a blatantly inaccurate mishmash of past events?

Lenin died in 1924, Trotsky was removed from power and expelled from the communist party in 1927. Both men didn't fight for Russia in WW-II.

Practically nothing in video is historically accurate. I'm interested in learning why our new member put it together.

Well what the hell!  That vid is evidence of someone smoking  heavy duty weed.  A historical can of worms that is so historically inaccurate as to be an insult. 

Is this some kind of play on Kellyanne Conways' alternative realities? 

I am going to my room now. That vid spoiled my whole damned day.
