Distorting History in the Schools

Manny is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Thursday, August 7, 2014. Our dear friend, Manny, is at the breakfast table this morning. He has asked for the pleasure of your company, because he is deeply concerned about the direction education is taking in this nation. The leftists have taken over our history and they are determined to alter the perception of America forever. Manny has baked delicious banana bread for all of us. I will be brewing a batch of Irish coffees, so we hope to see you soon.

Turn to the Left

The College Board is responsible for administering Advanced Placement courses and tests. They are installing a brand new curriculum for AP U.S. history and you are not going to be pleased. Basically, the new curriculum takes the heroes out of history and replaces them with evil characters that shaped your past and your future. If you expect to read about the Founding Fathers, you are going to be disappointed. The creators of this left wing curriculum toss the likes of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison out the window. In their place is a cast of people who came to America to destroy it. The Europeans are blamed for everything from slavery to disease. The Europeans are accused of being bigots which explains their poor treatment of Africans and American Indians. The notion of American superiority must be destroyed and people on the left, including President Obama, have been trying dutifully to do the dirty deed. In this bug's view, he is doing a fine job.

Deleting History

Testing and curriculum is AP classes will barely touch on the Declaration of Independence. Enormous credit is given to President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, crediting it for using the power of government to cure so many ills and reform the economy. Nancy Pelosi will definitely love this new approach as will Harry Reid, Valerie Jarrett, President Obama and Saul Alinsky!

The Greatest Generation has been erased from the books. The sacrifice made by so many brave American soldiers is touched on, but it plays second fiddle to discussions about the treatment of Japanese Americans. Teachers will be discussing the use of the atomic bomb with their students in the hopes of disparaging American values.

Progressive Brainwashing

Let's get to the point, dear friends. Your children are being brainwashed. The program starts way before high school. It will begin in kindergarten thanks to the implementation of Common Core. Although there will be protests affirming that this move on the part of the College Board has nothing to do with Common Core, don't believe it. The College Board, is not coincidentally, led by Common Core architect, David Coleman. Your children will be indoctrinated into a new way of viewing history. Your children will be indoctrinated into believing that America is not America the home of the free and the brave. Your children will become the kind of citizens the American left wants them to be. That translates to being blind, malleable, dependent and woefully undereducated. By the time your children enter college all the hard work of turning them into ignorant little leftists will have been accomplished. The professors will be so pleased and so will the architects of Common Core who will be responsible for indoctrinating the first full generation of left wing, intractable and cynical lunatics. Say Good-by to America......


Manny's Song


The moment I wake up

Before I stretch my wings

I say a little prayer for you

The moment I wake up

Before my first cup of brew

I say a little prayer for you....

Altering history in a classroom? Say it isn't so, Joe! Of course, as a former teacher, I know this has been done for centuries...and it has met with a certain amount of opposition....bottom line, if the people don't care, then revisionists can do any old thing they want to do. Raising awareness, like this, is crucial.

When Bill Ayers who should be in prison is allowed to be a College Professor and teach our young minds, what else could we expect? It will be interesting to see what the history books have to say about this administration. I suspect it will be a glowing report regarding all the accomplishments by the first Black President in our history.

Re- changing history. I've been aware of this for awhile now. I have 22 years between my oldest and my youngest. I watched the changes in the books that came home. It was right around that time that the schools said certain books had to stay in the school, not available for home use. That was the year I decided to volunteer in the classroom, and get out of the lunchroom. The first president was not George Washington. It was John Hanson. What!??! Presidents could only serve one term. (Sounds good to me, try 'em out first!). There were 7 more after him. So....That's what they are teaching our children.

Dear Billy,

Absolutely! Parents have to stay on top of all of this before their children become strangers to them in every way. There is a certain amount o awareness out there, but right now it simply isn't enough to keep these "changes" from happening. See you at the Inn, billy.

Good Morning, Mike,

I have no doubt that it will be a glowing report. The books will say that Obama came into office promising "hope" and "change" and he accomplished all his goals. It makes m stomach turn to even think about it. See you at the Inn on the early side. By tonight George Washington will be wiped from the history books.

Good Morning Rachael,

I think you should write about it. It might open a few eyes.. See you at the Inn and we'll talk some more.

Pop and Manny,

My daughters are grown mothers but I saw what you are talking about when they started school in the 1970's. They continued in public school but I supplemented their educations with some "home schooling" and they have done likewise with my grandchildren.

The bum in the white wanted to change America, and he is doing a fine job at changing it for the worse. I could go for a drink.

Now who would do this is the more serious question to ask yourself and then why would they even attempt it?

Patti, Obama has accomplished most or all of HIS goals. Unfortunately they were not what most of us wanted and are destroying our country.

I saw a list of Alinsky's rules and Obama has followed them to a tee! It begins with a healthcare takeover.

He is right on target with Alinsky's rules. Only a couple more and his job is done.

Dear taxlarry,

Dear Frog Prince,

They do it because the country is ripe for change. Some people are aware of what is happening, but the rest are sleepwalking! See you at the Inn....

I have already seen the effects of this indoctrination with the younger generation, because they no longer love America, as I do. Certainly we must tell the truth about slavery and the mistreatment of Native Americans, but we cannot forget the great deeds done in this country. Yuck, there's a bug leg in my banana bread!

Dear Mel,

Yes, of course,we must tell the truth, but that is not what is happening. I am encouraged to hear that in my town a great deal of time and attention will be paid to the Holocaust. I thought the left might try and erase it from our collective minds. See you at the Inn. I don't know where that bug leg came from, but it isn't Manny's leg!

Homeschooling is the only way to go now.

Dear Brie,

Homeschooling is a marvelous idea that is not possible for so many people. The best thing to do, other than homeschool, is to stay on top of what the kids are learning. See you at the Inn.

This is dreadful. It's already happened at the college level and now the poor elementary school kids have to be indoctrinated against America as well? Well, I guess they think you gotta get em young, right? What's worse, most parents don't do anything to counteract this trend; consequently, our children are going to believe the spin, and that's not even remotely good for our national spirit, as you well know, Manny, my friend.

Good Morning savvydating,

If you want to take over a nation you start with the children. Every good socialist, communist and fascist knows that! I wish more parents were aware of what is happening right under their collective noses. By the time their children head for college they will be total strangers to their parents in so many ways. See you at the Inn.

It is far easier to fill a young mind with your way of thinking than it is to change the mind of adults. Much of what they are taught stays with them the rest of their lives. Racial prejudice is a classic example of this type of teaching.

Good Morning, Mike,

When you want to "change" a nation , start with the children. These kids will never hear about the Founding Fathers and America's proud past. What a mess. See you you at the Inn. I just got an I-Phone, maybe you could show me how to use it!
