Doesn't politics belong in the Blue Fez?

Perhaps Dear Editor should Doughouse himself.

It's a history program at a library, Mike.

Actually this sounds interesting.

Bill, are you plan to join in?

No doubt it does sound interesting … but I think I know what they want you to learn …

And it is probably biased agenda drive.

IMO … the Cliff Notes :

America wanted impendence from the Crown so they could keep slavery …

White people are oppressors and everyone else is oppressed …

Both false, BTW …

But it does not fit the narrative to support CRT, 1619 Project, etc.

I.e. none of us had slaves and no one here picked cotton. Just ask anyone … It is a fact …

I wouldn't call it history. More like propaganda

Agreed …
