Darwin was a liberal, communist, liar!
The title had me at “hello!”
How a group of Texas conservatives is rewriting your kids’ textbooks.”
What I read made me want to cry and cuss.
Two quotes from the article, just to wet your appetite, are:
“…but we are a Christian nation founded on Christian principles. The way I evaluate history textbooks is first I see how they cover Christianity and Israel. Then I see how they treat Ronald Reagan—he needs to get credit for saving the world from communism and for the good economy over the last twenty years because he lowered taxes.”
“This critical-thinking stuff is gobbledygook.”
The preceding nuggets of intellectual wisdom were from a man who actually selects textbooks for the state of Texas and a man who represents the “think tank” that influences the people who select the text books for the state of Texas. (I don’t feel an additional comment is needed due to the weight of that sentence.)
Go and read it for yourself.
Be sure to comment on this, dear readers. I can’t wait to read how you feel about this one.
