A reduced scope for Latino history and culture
Sorry fastest growing minority in America. Take your Pancho Villa and shove it.
A more positive portrayal of Cold War anticommunism
Yes, children. It turns out Joseph McCarthy was in fact an American hero. Who cares that he ruined the lives of countless Americans for only exercising their right to free speech? You care, Johnny? You go on teacher’s blacklist.
Confederate General Stonewall Jackson as a role model for effective leadership
Have the blood of thousands of Americans on your hands? Fear not, you can still be an American hero. At this rate I wonder how long it’ll take bin-Laden to get on Mt. Rushmore.
Now the one that has really infuriated me (so mad I even wrote parts with caps lock on):
Thomas Jefferson no longer included among writers influencing the nations intellectual origins
My head is going to explode. HE WROTE THE FUCKING DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE! He wrote THE origin document for the United States of America. Without that beautiful piece of parchment we would not be a country. I can’t comprehend it. I don’t understand it. If there aren’t massive boycotts of textbooks from Texas I think we should kick them out of the union. How can we let our children be taught that the most important political writer and mind in American history isn’t that important? I never in my life thought a situation would arise where I'd be in favor of book burning. It is an outrage and a travesty and I’m just honestly fucking pissed.
