Shameless grifter/convict Dinesh D'Souza AKA The Man Who Launched A Thousand Face-Palms is on to your left-wing conspiracy to teach American history. Gotcha, pinkos! Or maybe not.
According to convicted felon D'Souza, teaching schoolkids about Columbus, slavery and the Civil Rights Movement is teaching them to hate America.
In an interview with One American News Network’s Rick Amato last week, right-wing activist and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza claimed that liberals are “teaching our young people to hate America” by including lessons on slavery, colonization and the Civil Rights Movement in school curricula.Presumably, what grifter and convicted felon D'Souza would prefer is that all unpleasantness be expunged from history because history, like reality, seems to have a left-wing bias.
D’Souza, who’s promoting his new movie “America: Imagine The World Without Her,” told Amato that a “generation of spoiled, overfed, affluent young people who turned bitterly against the Vietnam War” later “basically rewrote American history to make America the bad guy in all circumstances” by teaching schoolchildren about things such as the founding fathers owning slaves and Christopher Columbus’ exploitation of the native population.
“In a sense, we’re teaching our young people to hate America,” he said.
He added that this was part of a plot by leftist radicals who have figured out that “you don’t need to be a radical by blowing up a bridge” and that you can write textbooks instead.
So it's scram, Edward Gibbon, with your History of The Decline and Fall of The Roman Empire: needz moar LOLcats.
Hit the road, William H. Prescott and your History of The Conquest of Mexico: you're a bumming me out, man.
Arrivederci, J.J. Norwich and your History of Byzantium: dude, all that bloodshed, cruelty and incest...eugh.
Don't call us, we'll call you William L. Shirer and your The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: too many Nazis, not enough puppies.
You know, with D'Souza, the instinct is always to mock: the man's a risible, mendacious, ill-educated buffoon who tailors his witless drivel to suit the clucks, saps and credulous halfwits who take him seriously.
But sometimes, the stupidity is so damn deep and so damn wide that I'm at a loss for words. Seriously; confronted with such profound cretinism, I got nuthin'.
