If you’re like us, you’re beyond sick and tired of watching our American founding and culture being blasted and ripped away by Marxist Democrats who hate our country.
The latest outrage comes from Democratic Illinois State Rep. La Shawn Ford, who is demanding that all history classes be suspended until it is rewritten to get rid of its “systemic racism.”
Yes, now history lessons can be racist.
The Washington Times details the crazy:
An Illinois state lawmaker and other local leaders on Sunday called on the state's Board of Education to temporarily suspend all history teaching in schools until a new curriculum can be developed that doesn't contribute to systemic racism and white privilege.
At a press conference in Evanston, State Rep. La Shawn Ford, a Democrat, said the current school curriculum in Illinois is 'miseducating' children and overlooks the contributions to society by women and people of color.
'Today, I'm calling for the abolishment of history classes in Illinois,' Mr. Ford told reporters. 'We're concerned that current school history teachings lead to white privilege and a racist society.'
In a press release distributed before the conference, Mr. Ford called on Illinoisans to 'end the miseducation' of children.
'I'm calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history,' he said in a statement.
'Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved. I'm also alarmed that people continue to display symbols of hate, such as the recent display of the Confederate flag in Evanston.'
Translated: This ISIS wannabe seeks to rewrite history, not just history lessons, through the adoption of curriculum that is factually incorrect and historically dishonest — kind of like “The 1619 Project” adopted by The New York Times that these kook Democrat Marxists want to insert into schools.
Enough. History is history. We don’t have to like all of it, but in order to learn from it, we have to teach it as it happened, not as we’d have liked for it to have happened.
