Texas to Thomas Jefferson: Fuck You
The right wing members of the Texas State Board of Education are going to save a lot of money on colonoscopies; their heads are jammed so far up their fucking asses that any nascent polyp is likely to poke their beady little eyes.
They have removed “Thomas Jefferson” and “the Enlightenment” from world history standards. Seriously.
The right-wing members of the Texas School Board have made no secret of the fact that their mission in drafting the new social studies curriculum standards for state public school has been to highlight the supposedly Christian foundation of our nation and the deeply Christian views of the Founding Fathers.
Apparently, the views and writing of the man who drafted the Declaration of Independence do not adequately serve that purpose, which is why both Thomas Jefferson and the Enlightment have now been dropped, as the Texas Freedom Network, which is liveblogging the debate, reports[.]
