Happy Hour News

Before there was Fox News…

Here’s the ultimate in Both Sides:

SOUTHLAKE, Texas — A top administrator with the Carroll Independent School District in Southlake advised teachers last week that if they have a book about the Holocaust in their classroom, they should also offer students access to a book from an “opposing” perspective, according to an audio recording obtained by NBC News.

Sweet baby Jeebus, what in actual hell does this moron suggest is an opposing alternative to the Holocaust?

“How do you oppose the Holocaust?” one teacher said in response.

“Believe me,” Peddy said. “That’s come up.”

And then the appropriately named Peddy  doesn’t provide an answer, other than to suggest removing books.

“The information we have right now is that classroom libraries cannot be used until they have been vetted,” an assistant principal can be heard telling a group of elementary school teachers, instructing them to use the rubric sent by the district to determine which books are appropriate. “So you do need to go back to school and separate the books that have been vetted, and those books need to be available to students. The other ones do not need to be available to students until they have been vetted.”

Now, if your wondering why the Holocaust needs to be taught:

No mention of book burnings in Texas, America’s Lab for Bad Policy. At least not yet.

    I can think of a couple of opposing views. Some people believe there were way more than 6 million jews killed and Gina Peddy (R – Nazi) doesn’t think she’s an antisemite whereas the rest of the world knows she is as evidenced by the words that come out of her racist piehole.

    There should be a book “Indisputable Facts For Dummies”, but I guess they would burn it without having read it.

    Just unbelievable: “an alternative view” to the Holocaust? W.T.F.? Can this “educator” possibly be that stupid, or is she voicing her racism and fascism out loud?

    I guess this is another “very fine people, on both sides” post-Charlottsville “Jews will not replace us” MAGA moment.

    I want to vomit.

    I think I will write a book with the title ‘All The Lies’ in great big letters on the front. Inside I will put all the ‘opposing perspectives’. I will clearly point out all the lack of evidence for each lie… er perspective, and provide all the background as to where the lie… er perspective originated and why. Then I can make my fortune selling these books to all the schools that are required to have them.

    Perhaps Chimpy’s infamous quote “Is our children learning?” should be updated to something like “What do our children learning?”.
