While the radical left is toppling statues, Democrats in government are now doing their part to erase American history.
Democrats have been enabled in recent months and they’re not even trying to hide their contempt for American history anymore.
A Dem rep. named LaShawn Ford in Chicago is now calling for the suspension of teaching history.
NBC 5 in Chicago reports:
Chicago-Area Leaders Call for Illinois to Abolish History Classes
Leaders in education, politics and other areas gathered in suburban Evanston Sunday to ask that the Illinois State Board of Education change the history curriculum at schools statewide, and temporarily halt instruction until an alternative is decided upon.
At a news conference, State Rep. LaShawn K. Ford said current history teachings lead to a racist society and overlook the contributions of women and minorities.
Before the event Sunday, Rep. Ford’s office distributed a news release “Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools,” in which Ford asked the ISBOE and school districts to immediately remove history curriculum and books that “unfairly communicate” history “until a suitable alternative is developed.”
The representative instead suggested that schools devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand democratic processes.
“It costs us as a society in the long run forever when we don’t understand our brothers and sisters that we live, work and play with,” Ford said.
Maybe this should wait until Chicago sorts out its massive murder problem.
In Illinois we have either the best politicians bribe money can buy, or the dumbest politicians bribe money can buy. State Rep. LaShawn Ford is calling for the abolishment of History classes until we can teach about minority & women history. Sigh..
