WND via Daliy Caller via Yahoo News. It's like news laundering.

Worldwalker: clane, I'm kind of unclear on what you're trying to say there.


Reading comprehension fail coupled with weak troll attempt.


cameroncrazy1984: Civil_War2_Time: Most Texans blame Californians for ruining the "silicon hills" label we had back in the early 2000s, with their uppity attitudes and lackluster work ethic. Much of the .com bust we had in Austin during that time-frame was due to Californians.

That's some fine stereotypin' there, Lou.

/seriously, replace Californians with "blacks" or "indians" and then read that


I wish we could replace all the Californians with blacks or indians.

lewismarktwo: When I was in 3rd grade the teacher split the class into west and east Germany.  The west got real snacks while the east got the literal crumbs out of empty bags and cupcake wrappers to eat.  The west got to go outside to play and the east had to build block walls that the teacher would knock over once they were completed.  As far as I remember she did this of he own volition.


Now that's some fine indoctrination!  No basis in fact, and the only lesson is to hate the East.

Nice to see a teacher bring her A game.

"Smug, greedy, well-fed white people have invented a language to conceal their sins. It's as simple as that. The CIA doesn't kill people anymore, they neutralize people or they depopulate the area. The government doesn't lie, it engages in disinformation. The pentagon actually measures nuclear radiation in something they call sunshine units. Israeli murderers are called commandos. Arab commandos are called terrorists. Contra killers are called freedom fighters. Well if crime fighters fight crime, and fire fighters fight fire, what do freedom fighters fight? They never mention that part of it to us, do they?"

vpb: An unnamed student informed  WND

At first I thought this was a real story.


Yep.  And in Texas, seriously?  Would be more believable if if they claimed it was in California.

So any bets on what really happened?  Maybe the class watched Lawrence of Arabia and this is how WND is reporting it.

nubzers: 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.

Shiat, I went through the public school system in Texas and they made it pretty clear the differences between Fascism and Communism. I think I had one American History Teacher who was a die-hard conservative that purposely fudged the line between the two to fit her world view (Along with many, many other things) but I called her out on it and she pretty much dropped it.

CSB: I would get into arguments with her daily, and she was always shocked that a student would even think to argue with her "truth". Constantly called her out on shiat about the reasons f ...


You and your teacher sound like 2 sides of the same coin.

You're both idiots who think too much of themselves

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.


Not saying enlisting makes you more American than anyone else, however, in this particular case toward that particular type of person...

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.

You are correct, except his side lost, thus he was a terrorist.

Gee, next thing you know, they'll be telling Canadian high school teachers not to refer to all Americans as "rednecks".

I do not necessarily agree with this...
