State school standards banish lessons about World War I, II, Holocaust, Civil War

well, I think the appropriate response would be to say ‘f... your feelings” and get back to learning history, snowflakes.

Yes, which is why liberals are so cavalier about calling anyone they don’t like a Hitler.

Oh, they are brainwashing them. And wasting their time.

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. These minds have been wasted courtesy of the Minnesota Department of Education.

Based on the amount of time spent on it in my high school class, the most significant event in American History was the 1848 Seneca Falls convention on women's rights. I despised that class and it was years before I learned to enjoy history.

Holocaust huh?

Here you have one of the greatest historic lessons of the consequences of ethnic/ religious bigotry and these clowns want to banish it from the classroom.

I speculated that eventually they will teach that the only reason we went to war with Japan, was they Japan was only trying to kick Western Colonialists out of Asia, and the US cut them off economically, so Japan was totally justified to attack Pearl Harbor.

That day is almost at hand.
