What's the deal with the page quote? Crazy Earl? Dank memes? Unless I'm missing something, I'm pretty sure this should be removed.

The tropes is not in play as there is no in-universe backfire, no retort. The trope description includes a back and forth exchange between characters and so do the examples. Viewer realization is not enough, even considering that Tropes Are Flexible.
But there is a trope in there about idiocy and ignorance, but also about sociopathy since Custer killed a lot of Indians before kicking the bucket and is a glorified figure anyway for his last stand. In-universe You Fail History Forever would have worked before the rename to Artistic License. Critical Research Failure in-universe doesn't apply well to a throwaway line.
ETA I think I'll add it under Sociopathic Marine
