It's not just the media. Our schools are also controlled by anti-white trump haters.
1. The book was written by Howard Zinn. He died in 2010.
2. The latest edition was published in April 2017.
3. As near as I can tell it is not a textbook. Someone did buy 4,000 copies and
gave them to a school district.
It is $13.59 in paperback at Amazon.
PS. There is also a book by James Fraser with the same title.
If it's not a textbook, then it shouldn't be allowed in schools. It's a book of someones opinion only, and has no place in teaching. Some liberal hater bought them all hoping that the propaganda could be spread in our schools.
Uh, from your excerpt it didn’t call him racist (which he is) or mentally unstable (which he is). It said that some said he was racist and that Clinton’s supporters worried about his mental stability.
As opposed to the right wing version of history which doesn't even mention the internment of Japanese citizens in WWII or the white wash applied to the war against American Indians?
Teaching lies is wrong no matter what the lies are! I know much of what we learned in school are lies or half truths. Hopefully the young people growing up today will be able to see through the lies they're taught. But if our young people today is any indication of anything....I feel sorry for them. They're going to grow up in a horrible world.
Unfortunately many of those same young people are busy creating a horrible world. We can only hope that there are enough 'grownups' along the way to fix it.
Have you had a US history class ever? if so then surely you know that it was a the father of vote buying FDR (D) who put them in concentration camps and stole their property and mostly dems who took out the indians.
Conservatives you mean, right? The old democrats were a bunch of racist, conservative pieces of garbage, just like the racist, conservative Republicans today.
NOpe, FDR locked up the Americans that were of Japanese origin and he was a DEM.
Most KKK folks have always been dems and Robert KKK Byrd was a senator until he died
I don’t think you know the difference between an idiology and a political party. Lol. : )
have you? name one republican who opposed the internment of the Japanese.
KKK was always southern conservatives. They have been republicans since the 60s.
What textbook are you referring to?
All 3 of your points are false. Please stop lying.
Nothing wrong with locking up the japs. Many of them were spys.
Nothing wrong with fighting indians either. They were savages living in caves and eating bugs and dying at 32.
FYI, Bugs Bunny cartoons are not historical documentaries.
How funny and obtuse is that! Hilarious!
FDR, a Democrat, locked up Americans, took their property, and your retort is Republicans didn't object! How awful of them!
That said calling out FDR for his actions is unwarranted.
History seems not to be taught anymore. And sadly so for future generations.
But, after the attack on Pearl Harbor and the decimation of the Pacific Fleet it was fairly assumed by Roosevelt and military brass there could be a Japanese invasion of the West Coast . With the numbers of Japanese in the region, and not knowing how they would react or if any we're spies the internment was a wise precaution in my opinion.
It never happened and many may not know it was because of our 2nd Amendment. Admiral Hirohito himself ruled it out fearing not only or defense forces but an army of well armed citizens and guerilla warfare.
I don't know but I assume those interned got their property back.
No kidding...FDR was the father of vote buying? He didn't need to buy votes, he was running against Hoover. We were at the very worst of the depression. 25% unemployment.
Popular vote was 23 million to 16 million. Electoral was 472 to 59.
In 1936 it was about the same. Landon got 8 Electoral votes to FDRs 523.
Admiral Hirohito? Wow. You are certainly the history expert eh?
The point about republicans supporting the internment of Japanese citizens is that there was near universal support.
In Gov. Ralph Carr, Colorado has a shining light in the painful history of Japanese internment
No. The Japanese interned from 1942 to 1944 never recovered the property they were forced to sell.
