For once words fail me.Right wing lunacy has seen all sorts of nonsense dragged into the classroom. For example trying to debunk Darwin. But this seems quite dangerous to me.

I wonder if its just boneheadism or if there is a more sinister movement behind this.

Apparently you aren't that familiar with the American government school system. They are dominated by Leftards and other hardcore socialists.

"Right wingers" are kept at bay and usually send their spawn to private institutions.


BTW, when I was in school, we were taight how the Germans made lampshades and bars of soaps out of the Jewish population during WW2.

Sometimes there just are no words for this stuff, these last five years. You want to think that it's just small and isolated and irrelevant, but it isn't.

This didn't happen overnight, so it's clearly going to take a while.

Israel yes, Jews not so much.

Yes, I know how stupid that sounds but look who/what we're talking about.

I saw this article this morning and was stunned.

The county school board demands that teachers teach both sides of things, and the curriculum director used the Holocaust as an example. If they have books on the Holocaust, they have to have books on the opposing view. What opposing view??

Do they teach the fact many jews worked with the nazis just like many jews today work with their modern equivalent, the democrats?

Did you cry when congress voted to help Israel fund Iron dome?

Your link:

"State Sen. Bryan Hughes, an East Texas Republican who wrote Senate Bill 3, denied that the law requires teachers to provide opposing views on what he called matters of 'good and evil' or to get rid of books that offer only one perspective on the Holocaust.

"'That’s not what the bill says,' Hughes said in an interview Wednesday when asked about the Carroll book guidelines. 'I’m glad we can have this discussion to help elucidate what the bill says, because that’s not what the bill says.'"

Perhaps a historical perspective that answers the question of why Jews have been subject of such crimes as the Holocaust would help Americans understand both sides of "good and evil" in modern day Israel?

Pogroms

"Pogrom came into frequent use as a term around 1881 after anti-Semitic violence erupted following the assassination of Czar Alexander II."

Do a search and you will likely discover the board and the school district is heavily liberal. Most of our school admins are.

I am sure that David Irving and his fellow travellers could fill that need.

Sounds like a bunch of whiny teachers having a hissy fit because there are limitations on how much racist and communist indoctrination they can get away with. Not one person in this liberal hit piece cited the language in the legislation, just more broad brush nonsense. Gaslighting the Holocaust is simply a red herring.

There can be no "opposing view" to the truth that the Holocaust was the most evil event to occur in modern times, while taking nothing away from the evils inflicted on other minorities. Anti-Semitism has existed and manifested itself in Europe for centuries and touched America centuries before the Holocaust happened. It is based on a warped conclusion of Christians that an entire religion is to be blamed in perpetuity for the death of the man whose teachings form the basis of the Christian faith, and who was himself Jewish. It carries with it the ridiculous view that Jews somehow owe Christians something, which they never have. How ironic that the Christians had to throw away the very teachings of this man in order to arrive at this conclusion.

You are showing your gross ignorance here again.

Mr. Hitler and his socialist goombas didn't condemn the Jewish people because of their faith, but because of their supposed race.

Just another racist lib.

BTW, Hitler wasn't a Christian at all- his attacks against the churches were also legendary.

I think if you open your eyes and ditch the lib hysteria you will find that 99.99% of trump voters agree with you that the Holocaust was an evil event

The woman in question may be the exception (if she is a trump voter) or she may have just said something dumb

It happens on both sides

You didnt read the article, did you? If you did, and that's what you got out of it, there is no other conclusion but to call you stupid.
