    All history is biased. As Leftwing socialists control most public school and college history textbook publication houses, their Leftist agenda is quite apparent.

    In all the history textbooks I've seen over the years, Communists get a free ride. As their agenda is hardly different than Liberals who write the books. Every single history book I've looked at will have a least one dedicated page in the WW2 section on the Holocaust, and nothing on greater number of atrocities done by the Soviets. Hitler bad, Stalin good. Biased? For sure.

    Liberals have only a narrow view of what "civil rights" are. For typical, brainwashed American liberals, they believe it is still 1963 and Blacks and other ethnic groups still suffer under Jim Crow Voter Laws and the never ending problem of "racism and discrimination." Factors that will take another 2,000 years to erase, it seems.

    Black liberals, on the other hand, still think it is 1864, and as oppressed slaves, they can only have "justice" when they have taken over all forms of government through revolutionary acts. This is what they are demanding in Ferguson, Mo. And what has already happened in Detroit, and so many other cities across the nation.

    Would you call that "Black Supremacy" or just "Social Justice?"
    OP story = Right wing school board wants to censor history

    Right wing take away = Liberals want to censor history!!!

    lots of public and private schools pretend that the second amendment does not recognize an individual right and said schools denigrate hunting and other legitimate firearms use

    ask any vet who served in the pacific theater circa 1945 if the nuking of Japan was a good thing

    That's why they are students.But tehy have been taught little but negatiivity about their history so it\s natural to them that anything positive about America is just propaganda. Trashing America is their truth.

    I doubt they'll adopt the same attitude about trashing other countries of the world. They'll be the victims.

    Kids might be maximalists, but at least they fight for what they consider to be right.
    Reminds me of "Dead Poets Society". It's much better to think about what happens around, be involed and mistaken rather than blindly obey.

    The only place in that article where censorship is mentioned is by a 17 year old protestor. Not the best choice of intellectual cues, Sangha.

    Whether is was a good thing or was not should not matter in the educational teaching of the events. You tell the facts of the dates and the events that happened and then the teacher ( a good one) should then have a discussion without giving their own opinion but instead having the students come up with their own view on whether it was a good thing or not, provoking intelligent discussions and debate in the classroom. That's just my opinion on how it should be teached and it could be a good thing or not.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I don't blame them though. Their parents are probably even more self absorbed idiots, so it isn't like the kids had a chance.
    Protest is one of the highest forms of patriotism in this Republic.

    They can keep their fascist brainwashing all they want. The government will earn the respect and support of the People only so long as it deserves the respect and support of the People. When it acts against us, it is time to move against it. Patriotism in this context is just propaganda for submitting to the government and stop thinking about what they are doing.
