The educrats have decided that if students are to be taught about Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, then it might be best to leave out any mention of that … well, that war that was being fought at around that same time.
As Fox reports, in line with the Common Core approach, teachers are being told to:
The possibilities here are endless and not lacking in a kind of charm. The Declaration of Independence without mentioning that disagreement with the English. Roosevelt’s ‘Day of Infamy’ speech without bringing up that unpleasantness at Pearl Harbor …
And so on unto universal ignorance.
