I Am Livid
There's a reason I wrote this post. There's a reason I will defend what I said in it for as long as there's a need for the debate. This. Ed Brayton's take. There are no words to describe the sheer, unadulterated jackassery of the people involved in creating the school curriculum in Texas. None whatsoever. Cesar Chavez, Anne Hutchinson, and Thurgood Marshall don't deserve prominent places in American history? Thurgood Marshall isn't good enough? THURGOOD MARSHALL? And we can't describe America having "democratic values" any more but we have to switch it to "republican values?" This complete and utter bullshit is beyond the pale. And the fact that conservative Christian crackpots are overrepresented on the Texas Board of Education means the recommendations in the article might actually be implemented. Fuck them. Can we start asking why they hate America yet? Please?
