It would be interesting to do a study on how easily liberals and young people in particular are manipulated by propaganda. As the left consistently has delusions of intellectual grandeur they are still as susceptible to propaganda as anyone out there. It's there for all to see day in and day out.
If it didn't work, they wouldn't have such a stranglehold on our schools from pre-k through college.

Exactly. Schools used to teach children how to think. Now they program children. That's how we end up with the "truth is relative" nonsense among other things.

We do love it when you post comments like this above your tagline...

" Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous."

What else is there to say?

Before you swallow this bilge, examine the actual source. I did and I believe it has been properly debunked on page 3!

Yes, Texas, controls the content of text books. Something should be done about that.

Yeah, God knows that CA/NY/IL are the only ones enlightened enough to tell our students what's important historically.

There should be NO conservative influence of ANY KIND in our school system. Dude, roll yourself another foot long joint and calm down!

OMG, I'm so surprised that the NY Times and PBS are both up in arms because we aren't all adopting the progressive push to rewrite history as they see it. The problem is that it seems that EVERYONE involved in producing textbooks has an agenda.

And every time the old ones wear out the content of the new ones changes dramatically.

What does a kid know except what the big, impressive looking book says?

And so it begins, slanting the truth to fit your own agenda, coming from the group that cannot accept facts, which now includes historical facts. Withholding the truth...welcome to the Trump era. Can't wait to see what they change about Hitler, maybe he'll turn out to be a hero.

Tactful, lolll. I agree wholeheartedly with you. Lolll. Hey these conservative, republican types just have no idea of how completely brainwashed they are. And u just cannot convince them of it in spite of all the factual evidence. I know I'm saying lol, but it is a shame. Sad for our country.


Did Obama say there was a crisis at the border? Did Schumer, Pelosi and Clinton vote yes for a wall in the past? Do the border agents and ICE say a wall is needed? Did crime in Sam Diego and El Paso drop dramatically when their walls/barriers go up?

They have to fix it, no controls on access. You have to censor yourself.
