Here's a great article on the upcoming History Channel presentation of 'The People Speak', via Michelle Malkin.
I like the History Channel. I watch it on a nearly daily basis. I have been seeing the ads for this show and have been wondering what it will be all about. Considering the line-up of far left actors in the promo and the communist clenched fist logo, I was assuming it would be pretty liberal leaning.
I was right.
The creator of this newest piece of indoctrination is apparently a marxist 'historian' who feels that too many facts are being taught in our schools.
“There is no such thing as pure fact,” Zinn asserts.
The show is, according to Malkin, a military bashing, free market hating, white oppression touting liberal extravaganza, written, co-produced and bankrolled by Howard Zinn and actor Matt Damon.
The fact that they have a documentary isn't the problem. You can just change the channel if you don't want to watch it.
The fact that they also have a teaching plan to go with the documentary for when it is shown in schools nationwide is a problem, however. A big problem.
The indoctrination of our children is going strong, and Hollywood is upping the ante with their star power.
Please read Ms. Malkin's whole article - it's quite an eye-opener. The description of the math program Mr. Zinn and his cohorts are promoting will make your jaw drop.
If your child's school decides to run this program, demand an opt-out. I know I will.
