Recently, the Progressiveviks from AMSOC took a size 15 cowboy boot to the rear.
Was it on Obamacareless ? Cap and Traitor ? Card Theft ?
Nope. Nay. Negative.
The Progressiveviks took a beating in their own arena. The public schools.
For far too long, our children have been forced to swallow lie after lie in the cesspools that disguise themselves as public schools in our country. Ever since the Great Disruption of the 1960's, children have been taught enough socialist propaganda to make Karl Marx queasy. They've been taught that that capitalism only exists to exploit the working man, the Founders were racist atheists, Columbus was no better than Hitler, and only The Big Conservative Upstairs knows what else has been crammed in the young skulls full of mush, to coin a phrase from Rush Limbaugh. Friday changed all of that with a stunning 10-5 vote by the Texas Board of Education for actually teaching kids the facts about the history of our country, not some Ingsoc-like thought control and revision of facts. The great thing about this is where Texas leads, America follows, since textbook publishers base their curriculum on Texas Board of Education requirements since they are the nation's largest purchasers of textbooks.
This is vitally important if we're going to halt this slide into the Third World that our country is experiencing. Without this brave decision by the Texas Board of Education, we wouldn't just have one Chairman Obama, we would have a series of them, since many Americans were victims of this education malpractice plot hatched by the Progressiveviks in the 1960's. I'll use myself as an example of this. I am a college graduate. I am also on the wrong side of 30, yet, until recently, I had never read Nineteen Eighty-Four, Common Sense, or for that matter, the Constitution. When I told my mother that I read Nineteen Eighty-Four for the first time, she asked me, "Didn't you read that in high school ? It was required reading back when I was in school. So was Common Sense, did you read that ?" She then proceeded to tell me that I don't call enough, so that was my cue to inform her I was on my way to work. The point is: What else have they not taught me ? Granted, I did learn that Heather Has Two Mommies and how to put a condom on a banana, so I guess my public school years weren't a total loss.
Now, don't expect the Progressiveviks to take this lying down. Take a look at the hysterics by Board Member Mary Helen Berlanga, who stormed out of the Texas Board of Education meeting sobbing "They can just pretend this is a white America and Hispanics don't exist. They are going overboard, they are not experts, they are not historians....They are rewriting history not only of Texas, but of the United States and the world." Of course, no self respecting Conservative would do that since we are the ones trying to put back history the way we found it: unbiased and unchanged. No Conservative in his right mind would put a stamp of approval on some of the darkest chapters in our history such as slavery or the mistreatment of migrant workers, since most Conservatives live and die by the old saying: Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it, which is quite different from the Progressivevik mantra of: America sucks, capitalism sucks, revolutions are started with young, and Sieg Heil. Oh, I almost forgot another part of their mantra: God is dead and don't forget to recycle.
Here's some of the topics Berlanga and her fellow drones found so disagreeable:
--ending the myth of a division of church and state in the Constitution
--The Conservative Resurgence of the '80's and '90's
--The Contract with America
--The unintended consequences of LBJ's Great Society, affirmative action, and Title IX
--The fact that Americans of German and Italian descent were also interned during World War II
--Actual facts about the McCarthy era and the Venona papers.
--The truth about the violence of the Black Panthers and how Republicans actually voted for civil rights legislation.
--Adding Milton Friedman and other Conservatives to the list of economists to be studied.
--The importance of personal responsibility in making life choices. (In other words, sociology is a fraud and society does not force anyone to do anything. No wonder the Progressiveviks cried foul when this one came up.)
A quick scan of the above list certainly shows why the AMSOC gang is so up in arms. They can no longer control the past. As Orwell put it in Nineteen Eighty-Four:
WHO CONTROLS THE PAST CONTROLS THE FUTURE.
WHO CONTROLS THE PRESENT CONTROLS THE PAST.
Well put, George. No wonder they didn't have us read you when I was in school.
