We know about Arizona’s bill that mandates President Obama to present his birth certificate in order to run for reelection in that state. We certainly know about its bigoted mandatory stop-and-harass Hispanic-looking people law. But perhaps you haven’t heard the latest.
Governor Jan Brewer has signed a bill destroying the Tucson school district’s ethnic studies program and prohibiting the establishment of similar programs in their state. State schools chief Tom Horne said he believes the Tucson school district’s Mexican-American studies program teaches Latino students that they are oppressed by white people. And, evidently, it also teaches students that big, hot yellow thing up in the sky is called the “sun.”
According to the Associated Press, “The Tucson Unified School District program offers specialized courses in African-American, Mexican-American and Native-American studies that focus on history and literature and include information about the influence of a particular ethnic group. For example, in the Mexican-American Studies program, an American history course explores the role of Hispanics in the Vietnam War, and a literature course emphasizes Latino authors.”
The bill is intended to prohibit courses that might have the possibility of raising “ethnic solidarity or resentment.” I guess they won’t be able to talk about slavery in Arizona schools. That puts them in line with those crybabies who resent anybody saying the “War Of Northern Aggression” was about slavery. And the war of genocide committed on native Americans – that’s got to be out as well.
It is only fitting that the whitewash of American history be performed by white people.
The United Nations condemned the measure, which will doubtlessly make the bill even more popular in what is presently America’s most racist and isolationist state. The U.N. noted people “have the right to learn about their own cultural and linguistic heritage.”
These people do not know what America is all about. They consider our Constitution to be outdated, the Bill of Rights to be socialist, and our founding fathers to be a bunch of left-wing pussies. It appears they do not know how to read, or perhaps they are simply too lazy to try, or too narrow-minded to ingest foreign cultures that differ from the foreign cultures from which they devolved.
I’m certain these… people… feel it’s just a coincidence that none of this crap was believed to be necessary under a white president. The Arizona fools and their Tea Bagger fellow travelers want America to “return” to being a country where everybody looks, believes, acts, and thinks just like them. A nation of scared, spineless bigots. A nation that never existed.
I, for one, will not be doing business with anybody in the state of Arizona. I do not take this step lightly as, by and large, I feel boycotts are counterproductive and usually wind up hurting innocents. But the behavior of the lily-white politicians who run th e state is so egregious I simply cannot bring myself to do anything that would support these jingoists or the un-American, inhuman pieces of shit that put them in office and keep them there.
