It's nice to know that historians - particularly those in Texas - are lining up against the Texas state "reforms" that teach stuff like slavery wasn't so bad and Joe McCarthy was a nice guy or whatever lies they are selling.
Plus, another view supporting California's move to reject any textbook that is printed that includes the Texas lies.
Seriously, people in general are pretty stupid. Willingfully lying to children because you are bigoted and hate others is just cruel. Our children are supposed to be *better* than us, not force fed bullshit that doesn't reflect reality.
That bastard Don McLeroy may have lost his seat on the Texas State School Board, but there are still plenty of Talibangelical jackasses who want to destroy our education system.
These are the pricks who honestly think that Joe McCarthy is some kind of American hero. No, seriously.
These people have literally got to be stopped. Not in a lethal sense, but their point of view, their derangement, their flawed thinking and beliefs. Their disease has got to stop being taken seriously.
Yes, it starts with an election, but this is one in Rethug-ruled Texas. Even a possibly moderate Republican is going to have Luddite and Talibangelical tendencies, if not Tea Bag Traitor ones come re-election time.
We need our children educated, not fed fairy tales and lies. We want them to open their minds and not close their hearts. That's what the Republicans want to give our people: hate, fear, ignorance. Never forget that.
Stay vigilant folks!
