You can't prevent the truth from coming out, Shroomwang. Just ask the women you raped, and the SDNY investigators.

I'm currently reading Ron Chernow's "Grant".  Trump should go after that hard-left radical Lincoln and his attack dog, Grant, who killed hundreds of thousands of patriotic Southerners who were just trying to protect their heritage.   Good thing Lincoln's political party doesn't exist anymore.

If you can't stand naked in front of a mirror in a well lit room and look at yourself, you aren't a man - and a nation that can't do that is not a brave or manly nation.

"Americans are exhausted"  Yes, exhausted from having an incompetent orange anus as "president."
"We want our sons and daughters to know the truth."  Exactly. All of us do. Let's start with your tax returns.

It got George Washington's attention, who immediately shut down the airports.

I hadn't even heard of the 1619 Project until the Redcaps got up in arms about it in early 2020.

I doubt many more of them had actually read any of it than could coherently define socialism---never mind critical race theory.

Pity, really. Anybody with any interest in American affairs at all will find it a useful refresher on slavery's legacy, and high school history teachers were bound to find it a good introduction to the subject at a level suitable for their better students (of all races).

Sorry, Donald, but I'd rather the national educational curriculum be dictated by someone whose passing grades weren't contingent on the school getting new lab equipment and the teacher getting a new car.

Don't miss the paragraph on the Irish War of Independence, where Eamon de Valera kicks the Queen in the arse.

A friend posted about this on FB earlier, and a friend of theirs said that a number of historians also took issue with the project and wrote criticisms of it.  So I asked her for some links, assuming she meant that some Black historians found some details or some framing to object to (potentially valid).  I got a random list of names I assume to be historians and no links, and then she followed it up with, "Keep in mind a lot of things are being pushed as a Marxist agenda and that is where a lot of this comes from."  Then I blocked her because I don't have time for crazy.

What a bunch of whiny little biatches.

What do the feds have to do with this?

If they are that concerned about crap lies being taught in school, maybe they would start with Texas textbook that have been taught all over the country (pick one, any one, seriously)

Pretty much.

FFS, the Rolling Stones have existed longer than voting rights for Black Americans.
Systemic racism is a big part of the fabric of American History.

Look, MAGAts, if everything was perfect from the start, the Bill Of Rights wouldn't have needed to have been amended 16 times.

I don't count the 18th Amendment, because that was just farking stupid.

Here he goes again with he's going to pull the funding from X if he doesn't get his way.  On average, schools get about 8% of their funding from the federal government. The federal government does not give the money directly to the schools. Rather, they give it to individual states and stars disburse it. This is yet another of his empty stupid idiotic moronic dumbass declarations that means absolutely nothing. They've already got their piggy banks filled for this year, and God willing we won't have to deal with his stupid ass for the next school year.

Today's "press conference":

TRUMP: No, I want people to know everything they can about our history. I am not a believer in cancel culture. If you don't study the bad, it could happen again. I want it studied very, very carefully and studied accurately.  But we grew up with a certain history and now they are trying to change our history. Revisionist history.

He knows what he was taught about this stuff, 60 years ago in an all white military school, and ain't nobody changing his mind.

Maybe Trump is from a different Earth. Or maybe everything he says is true in Hell or Bizarro Trump World.

But I think I will stick with Occam's Razor for now. He never actually said it in so many words but the things men leave unsaid are often more brilliant than the polished gems they put in books of quotations.

Ut ententia non multiplicanda sint ... he never said that either. It was the lipadary summation of some other literatre scholar a century or two later, possibly more. Latin is good for quotations. Every three words you string together roughly can mean about 5,000 things, so you can invent the slogan first and wait for it to become true thanks to your enemies.

Saiga410: Trump isnt the NYT


No, he's way too cheap and nasty for news print or even onion skin paper. He's one ply toilet paper so thin you can read a book through it from the bath tub. And yet he manages to be as abrassive as a really rough sand paper. It's really quite miraculous as far as TP goes.

I also have to wonder how many times the concept of "revisionist history" had to be explained to him before he understood what it was. And how many times he had to hear revisionist pronounced before he could say it right.

That's one thing that bugs me about American usage. The word "special" and the word "gifted" are used for the top 2% and the bottom 2% of the intelligence scale simultaneously. But you can easily guess which you are because no fecking taxpayer will pay for classes for smart kids. They can fend for their farking selfs.

As I recall, the primary point of contention was that the American revolution was fought to preserve slavery in America and there was follow-up clarification that not all colonists supported slavery.
