The Tennessee Tea Party Wants to Do What?

Scars of a whipped slave (April 2, 1863, Baton...

Those crazy Tea Baggers are at it once again: They are putting pressure on Tennessee state legislators to actually remove all references to slavery in relation to our founding fathers from American History text books.

It’s horrific enough that the oppression of so many is woven into the fabric of our history: to completely white wash their story and only portray American History from the white elitist point of view, only adds insult to the morally reprehensible enslavement of a whole race of people.

I can only say this to Tennessee Tea Baggers. When you push to take any reference to slavery out of the text books, you might want to push to have the Scopes Monkey Trial out as well. You’re less intelligent than the apes you claim not to have evolved from, and the apes have better morals. The history of that trial in your state might portray you in a bad light, so take that out with all the other stuff you want to deny.

Stop fucking with our history!

    Asinine isn’t it? Remember the effort to change a number of aspects of history by the Texas education board a couple of years ago?

    Efforts like these are mind-boggling to me.

    America was never racist! Slavery never happened. Nope. See, it’s not even in the textbooks anymore. Red White & Blue eternal perfection, baby!

    Anybody talking about racism is just playing the Race Card. They’re the real racists!

    (Note: I’m being sarcastic. The fact I even have to write that I’m being sarcastic shows you how bad things are.)

    As Orwell wrote in 1984, “Those who control the past, control the future.”

    This is exactly what he had in mind.
