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.
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.
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......
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....
