We ain't no kinda democracy and we damn sure don't push no democratic values


https://www.dailykos.com/story/2018/7/1/1777042/-New-Authoritarian-GOP-Removed-D...

In "social studies.  The term “core democratic values” has been stricken---replaced with “core values”. "

"The [old] standard about the expansion of civil rights for minorities in the 20th century included specific references to Native Americans, Latinos, people with disabilities, and gays and lesbians. They were removed in the proposed new standards, while language was added saying that the expansion of civil rights for some groups can be seen as “an infringement of rights and freedoms” of others."


Go figure.

Yep, we gotta get the phrase " democratic values" out of our text books.

What we gotta do is go back to teaching history as it actually occurred, with all of the pluses and minuses that go along with it.  Things like taking down momuments of people of the past with whoim we disagreed but who were an important influence is denying what happened and shouldn't be done.

Heck, there's also a movement to get rid of gender related nouns and pronouns e.g. "man", "woman", "he" she".    Denying reality is dangerous.

Denying reality is dangerous, but so strange coming from someone who doesn't understand why the monuments were erected. Look there and who may be able to understand why they should be moved to a museum.

I love it when people argue we are a republic and not a democracy. It's cute.
