Texas' so-called Board of Education had its reactionary way today, approving
a right-wing version of history for its social studies curriculum that
will teach kids about the NRA, the Moral Majority, the virtues of
McCarthyism and "the unintended consequences" of affirmative action.
Their version of things canned Hispanic role models, the words
'democratic' and 'capitalism,' and Thomas Jefferson, who touted the
separation of church and state, a no-good-commie idea if ever there was
one.
