    Why do they want to teach our children to hate each other?

     

    Divide and conquer! (just kidding) Learning history that more closely approximates the truth will make sure we don't make the same mistakes again. What she said. Acknowledging past wrongdoing by other people need not lead to self-loathing. But that needs to be pointed out strenuously. The future starts NOW.

     you watch too much CNN.

     

     

    I don't watch any news, except the Scott Adams podcast.

    I do read news articles of interest.

    Just think if Trump said this and than tried to clean it up or walk it back as the ultraliberals say:

     

     

    Sleepy Joe: In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7-11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."

     

     Joe Biden, captured on C-SPAN's "Road to the White House" series, trying to bond with an Indian-American supporter. A Biden spokeswoman later said, "The point Senator Biden was making is that there has been a vibrant Indian-American community in Delaware for decades."

     

    Joe is correct, if not politically correct. But, you're right, they would have crucified Trump if he had said it.

    Unvaccinated not so much.

    "They should stay at home."

     

     

    Vaccinated Americans can ‘go out there and enjoy Halloween’, says Fauci (msn.com)

    Declining Covid cases should not mean that we can “prematurely declare victory” over the coronavirus, Dr Anthony Fauci said on Sunday.

    "But if you’re vaccinated you can get out there” trick-or-treating, Fauci told CNN’s State of the Union.

    “You’re outdoors for the most part,  and this is a time that children love, it’s a very important part of the year for children."

    Pedo Biden : "I could molest a little child on Time Square  . . .  oops no, I mean   . . .  in public, in front of cameras and with her parents standing right next to the child  . . . .  an no one would give a shit and love me all the more" !

     

    And he did it too !

    Lisa Ling: It's time to rethink how we are teaching history in our schools  - CNN

     

     

     

    I largely agree with her, while acknowledging that she obviously has a dog in this fight (and probably in her egg roll) 

     

     

    Lisa Ling: It's time to rethink how we are teaching history in our schools (msn.com)

    (Full article at above link)

     

     

    Less than a year out of high school, I was given a book that would rock my world and propel me to question everything I ever learned about US history. It was Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States." (I've read it and mentioned it before on NHB-drvoke)

    On the very first page, Zinn recounted what Christopher Columbus wrote in his log about the indigenous people he encountered upon reaching the new world:

     

    "They brought us parrots and balls of cotton and spears and many other things, which they exchanged for the glass beads and hawk's bells. They willingly traded everything they owned .They were well-built, with good bodies and handsome features .They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane .They would make fine servants .With fifty men we could subjugate all of them, and make them do whatever we want."

     

    Up until that moment, Columbus Day, was reserved for parades or barbecues -- a day to celebrate America's origins. After reading Zinn's book, the holiday became something else: a reminder of the conquest, displacement and even the genocidal origins of our nation. The more I delved into history, the more I learned about other dark and shameful episodes.

    As Americans, we must continue to ask ourselves: In our quest to democratize this nation and even dominate the world, whose sacrifices may have been overlooked? How can we ensure their stories are never left behind? We've erased stories of the diverse peoples who call our country home, making it easier to repeat the same mistakes.

    You think that will make a difference ?

     

    LoL

     

    We're way past the point of no return, fool !

     

    But you go ahead and keep dreaming that technology will find an exoplanet where we'll all relocate once this one becomes uninhabitable !

     

     

    Yes, it is !

    No way back !

    The abyss is where we're hurtling toward  . . .  and there's nothing you me or anyone else can do about it !

     

    Humanity can become extinct with zero procreation in 50 years. This plague of abuse can be nearly eradicated by the best and brightest. I don't want humanity to disappear completely, just about 60% - 70%. It can be done!

    "Rome is Burning"...............BLM tears down 100 statues..........& you

    are worried about 3 monuments ??

     

    Wow.                🙄

     

    You didn't watch the video. These are not statues. He is restoring environmental protections to large tracts of land that Trump stripped so that companies could exploit and despoil them.

    I don't think that he was fondling her chest...I think he was rubbing her shoulders.  Was she bothered by it?  Sure... I had a touchy feely aunt who always would hug me too tightly and mess up my hair.  I'd squirm to get away from her.  Was she inadvertently annoying?  Absolutely.  Was she molesting me?  Absolutely not... and if she were in some high elected office, her hugs and hair mussing would not have been disqualification from office.

     

    Correct.

    Are you SERIOUSLY going to continue to defend these proven perverted acts??

     

     

    Do you honestly believe that he deliberately molested a little girl in front of a room full of people and photographers? If so, you are pretty far gone at this point.
