Smokey the Bare: This has to be the greatest troll I've seen today. Unnamed student? Yeah, that sounds legit./Please let Fox News pick this up, please let Fox News pick this up, please let Fox News pick this up
gadian: The Boston Tea Party WAS terrorism. Freedom Fighters = The guys that win. Terrorists = The guys the freedom fighters don't want to win.
gopher321: Gee, next thing you know, they'll be telling Canadian high school teachers not to refer to all Americans as "rednecks".
Crewmannumber6: One man's patriot
Big Man On Campus: In that case, John Wilkes Booth was just a freedom fighter, he was fighting for the freedom to practice slavery.
Point02GPA: Big Man On Campus: In that case, John Wilkes Booth was just a freedom fighter, he was fighting for the freedom to practice slavery.Wasn't he the first actor to really get inside Lincoln's head?
wildcardjack: [upload.wikimedia.org image 220x310][www.lsjunction.com image 500x340]Texas, more than any of the rest of you, has a history that includes terrorists and freedom fighters. Freedom fighters who wanted to be able to keep slaves.

vpb: An unnamed student informed WNDAt first I thought this was a real story.
Silverstaff: A story about an unnamed student that informed WND. . .Trolling achieved.One thing interesting FTA:CSCOPE labels fascism and Nazism as "conservative," despite the fact that both ideologies prescribe that the state should control everything and own all resources.Uh, fascism/Nazism is conservative, extremely so, that's the whole point. Nowhere in Fascism is the idea that the state should own all resources. Last I checked, Nazi Germany had LOTS of private companies getting very rich off of the 3rd Reich. Private ownership of resources is communism, and violent anti-communism is part of the whole point of Fascism.Volkswagen started there, the VW Beetle was created originally to be sold there. Bayer? The Asprin people? Yeah, they used concentration camp slave labor. . .and produced the Zyklon B poison gas for the gas chambers through subsidiaries. Messerschmit? Focke-Wulf? Those names that got associated with the Luftwaffe? Private for-profit companies (in both cases, these two lasted into the 1960's) That was kind of the whole point of Schindler's List, wasn't it? A Nazi war profiteer who owned and ran an ammo factory having a change of heart?Total ignorance of history and political ideologies and creating strawmen versions of them to attack?Just hammers in the political hit-piece nature of this right-wing anti-leftist "the liberals are trying to brainwash your kids" propaganda.
Farce-Side: I always thought history and social studies classes were biased anyway. They have for the longest time had a pro-white people of European decent slant to them. Columbus discovered America, manifest destiny in a positive light, indigineous cultures portrayed as savages on every inhabited continent, and on and on and on. Maybe it's about time the curriculum makers switched it up.
nubzers: One day she called me un-American. So I brought a copy of my enlistment papers to her class. Not a peep out of her after that.
Civil_War2_Time: Texas sucks, and you should never come here it's so bad.
Diogenes: It's amazing how I managed to learn about world history and cultures without value judgement and indoctrination. I guess my teachers were lazy.Thanks, inferior American school system!
SomeoneDumb: You don't have to like or approve of it, but it never hurts to learn things.
