    Typical liberal response: no evidence to back their claims.

    Hardly a "Pro-USA" textbook. The authors' point of view crystallizes into anything but an American viewpoint. The authors write, "In 1900 a superpatriotic group known as the 'Boxers' broke loose with the cry, 'Kill Foreign Devils'." Not once do the authors call the Boxer Rebellion a 'discriminatory insensitive action on the part of the Chinese'. Instead, the authors note "patriotic Chinese" formed to kick out foreigners [Boxer Rebellion]. Previously in the text is the Chinese immigration into the United States around the 1880s. Chinese immigration in the United States culminated with passing the Chinese Exclusion Act (barring Chinese immigration). The text describes this act as a "discriminatory measure" and that Americans were acting out of "ethnic prejudice." Although it may be seem discriminatory, it was also realistic. Americans in the Golden State complained about competing Chinese immigrants for jobs and wages (as the Chinese would work for cheap). There is an obvious slant and bias here.

    You ignored the actual standards which call for censorship

    That isn't what they said, though.

    It's what you highlighted.

    including messages that read "There is nothing more patriotic than protest."

    that was what you quoted when I responded to you, and you claimed the kids were dumb and everything. But it is a true statement. I guess there's semantics if you want to play "nothing more" vs. "one of the highest forms of", but that's about it.

    And where is the censorship in that statement? If this is what you call censorship then the act of creating a curriculum is and always has been censorship.

    And that isn't what you said! Criminey.

    Quote #1: "There is nothing more patriotic than protest."
    Quote #2: "Protest is one of the highest forms of patriotism in this Republic."


    So, I would state that laying down your life for your country is the greatest form of patriotism.

    If that is true (which it is) then Quote #1 is false and Quote #2 is still true. Therefore:

    Quote #1 =/= Quote #2

    Ahh, ok, so you're going the dumb semantics game route. K. Dumb semantics games are dumb.

    That's it? That's all you have in response to j's post? Ba! Worthless.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.
