For instance, they passed a bill that states: “intentionally or knowingly creating a human-animal hybrid.” is now illegal. Wow, were people doing that? If they were it certainly explains why the legislature has their heads up their asses.
Then they really let their freak flag fly. They sent a bill to the Governor that prohibits ethnic studies programs. Unless the ethnic group is Caucasian because that is the only correct version of history and the world had better get used to it.
The new bill would make it illegal for a school district to teach any courses that promote the overthrow of the U.S. government, promote resentment of a particular race or class of people, are designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group or "advocate ethnic solidarity instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals."Attending military schools most of my life I soon realized that there were seven continents but only two of them were important. Europe and North America. And by North America they meant the land between Canada and Mexico. Canada was a wasteland between us and the North Pole and Mexico killed American heroes at the Alamo.
As far as my history/geography classes went, China was where Marco Polo visited and brought back spices, spaghetti and gunpowder. Genghis Khan may have controlled most of the known world in the 13th century, but he was a barbarian whose contribution to history was summed up in one sentence. He was a barbarian.
Japan was important because of Pearl Harbor, kamikaze pilots and Hiroshima. Nagasaki was never mentioned. Africa was where slaves came from and Egypt wasn't part of Africa, it was the home of Cleopatra and this guy named Livingston was found there. Southeast Asia was mentioned because of Vietnam but it had no history before then. India was nonexistent except as the name of an ocean and Australia was where British criminals were sent. New Zealand had sheep and Korea is where MASH was set. Russia was full of bad guys and South America had some guy named Simon Bolivar. The Panama canal was built in one sentence, whereas the Suez appeared magically.
Women were famous because of who they married or how they died, they most certainly didn't invent anything. As a matter of fact, only Caucasian males invented things that were useful to society. Native Americans were savages that scalped people for no reason and they couldn't hold their liquor so they had to be rounded up and sent to reservations for their own safety. It's not like they were native born citizens or anything.
Fortunately I was addicted to reading and spent many hours in the 900 section at the library, otherwise I wouldn't have known anything except the pablum that was recited year after year as if it was Gospel.
By all means limit the information to give kids a well rounded background by claiming that ethnic studies foment rebellion, separatism and resentment of a particular race, which is code for Caucasian males. Somebody has to buy those Texas schoolbooks.
In ten years the United States will be irrelevant as the rest of the world moves into the 21st century and we make our way back to the 19th. No wonder our economy is tanking.
