    If you have kids, or nieces/nephews you want to get interested in American History, these are some good reads.
    I have credits on Audible. I'll download the book and report back, though I already know if I like the book liberals will just "of course you do you're a brainwashed Conservative" but if I don't like the book liberals will hold me up as their golden calf.

    Whatever.

    There's nothing wrong with a historically themed children's book, or do you prefer children remain ignorant?

    As I've said, you should read it and speak from an informed position rather than speaking from a disinformed position.
    Was that mistake intentional? If so, that is rather ironic.

    Many conservatives like to fire off that "tolerance" line when liberals put up a fight against their nonsense.

    And maybe a better question is, why do I care? On second thought, go ahead. Be as wrong as you want and anyone who reads your opinions will just have to guess what the term 'liberal' means to you on a case-by-case basis.
    Narrow minded twits look for labels to slap on everybody to make their little lives so much easier - it is the path that requires little intelligence.

    It allows them to pick responses from a hit list of phrases, again the result of poor intelligence, or laziness.

    Not to mention the violence perpetrated here by Islamists.
    He encouraged all that?......


    "The days of them [minorities] not having any power are over, and they are angry. And they want to use their power as a means of retribution."

    On November 11, 2010, Limbaugh proposed a new leadership position for Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC):

    "Clyburn's [Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC)]worried about not having a car? Clyburn's worried about not having the perk of a big office? A driver? So, forth. The way this could all be worked out, Clyburn's new position: Driving Miss Nancy. He gets to keep the car. He gets to go everywhere she goes."

    Hu Jintao [Chinese president] was just going, "Ching cha. Ching chang cho chow. Cha Chow. Ching Cho. Chi ba ba ba. Kwo kwa kwa kee. Cha ga ga. Ching chee chay. Ching zha bo ba. Chang cha. Chang cho chi che. Cha dee. Ooooh chee bada ba. Jee jee cho ba." Nobody was translating, but that's the closest I can get.

    "Seems that the NAALCP [sic], which is -- which equals racism. Forget calling them the NAACP. They are now the R-A-C-I-S-M. NAACP equals racism. And they're all applauding her [Sherrod] when she's talking about racism."

    On November 15, 2011, Limbaugh defended Newt Gingrich for describing Spanish as "the language of living in a ghetto":

    "In my mind, there's nothing wrong with it. I don't instinctively know what's wrong with it. There is a language of the ghetto. There is a language of the barrio. And it's not good."


    "Holocaust?" Ninety million Indians? Only four million left? They all have casinos -- what's to complain about?

    The 20 Most Racist Things Rush Limbaugh Has Ever Said | Alternet

    “In Obama’s America, the white kids now get beat up, with the black kids cheering, ‘Yeah, right on, right on, right on’ … Kid shouldn’t have been on the bus anyway. We need segregated buses — it was invading space and stuff.”


    2. “If homosexuality being inborn is what makes it acceptable, why does racism being inborn not make racism acceptable? … We are born that way. We don’t choose it. So shouldn’t it be acceptable, excuse — this is according to the way the left thinks about things.” Source


    [To an African-American caller] “Take that bone out of your nose and call me back.”

    “Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?”

    [To a caller arguing that black people need to be heard] “They are 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?”

    [When a Mexican won the New York Marathon] “An immigration agent chased him the last 10 miles.”


    Jared Loughner [shooter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, a Democrat] has the Democrats’ “full support”


    “The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. They’re invested in black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. I think there’s a little hope invested in McNabb and he got a lot of credit for the performance of his team that he didn’t really deserve.”

    “Look, let me put it to you this way: The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.” Source

    “Women should not be allowed on juries where the accused is a stud.”

    “Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive women access to the mainstream of society.”


    “They’re [women who protest against sexual harassment] out there protesting what they actually wish would happen to them sometimes.”

    “What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex — what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex. She’s having so much sex she can’t afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.”

    "...So Miss Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here’s the deal. If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.”

    “Let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do — let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.”


    “We’re not sexists, we’re chauvinists — we’re male chauvinist pigs, and we’re happy to be because we think that’s what men were destined to be. We think that’s what women want.”


    A feminazi is a woman to whom the most important thing in life is seeing to it that as many abortions as possible are performed. Their unspoken reasoning is quite simple. Abortion is the single greatest avenue for militant women to exercise their quest for power and advance their belief that men aren’t necessary. Nothing matter but me, says the feminazi; the is an unviable tissue mass. Feminazis have adopted abortion as a kind of sacrament for their religion/politics of alienation and bitterness.”

    “There are more American Indians alive today than there were when Columbus arrived or at any other time in history. Does this sound like a record of genocide?”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, See, I Told You So, p.68, November 1993

    Take guns out of the possession, out of the hands of liberals, take their typewriters and their keyboards away from ‘em, don’t let ‘em anywhere near a gun, and control their speech. You would wipe out 90% of the crime, 85 to 95% of the hate, and a hundred percent of the lies from society.”

    “[S]ome people are self-starters, and some people are born lazy. Some people are born victims. Some people are just born to be slaves. Some people are born to put up with somebody else making every decision for them.”

    “You just gotta be who you are, and I think it’s time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call ‘em gangs.”
    ~Rush Limbaugh, another racist comment, December 8, 2004


    [T]he nags … the national association of gals, that’s our pet name for the NOW gang … the nags are a bunch of whores to liberalism.


    “To some people, bankers — code word for Jewish — and guess who Obama’s assaulting? He’s assaulting bankers. He’s assaulting money people. And a lot of those people on Wall Street are Jewish. So I wonder if there’s starting to be some buyer’s remorse there.”

    “The only way to reduce the number of nuclear weapons is to use them.”

    “I think this reason why girls don’t do well on multiple choice tests goes all the way back to the Bible, all the way back to Genesis, Adam and Eve. God said, ‘All right, Eve, multiple choice or multiple orgasms, what’s it going to be?’ We all know what was chosen.”

    “When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it’s an invitation.”
