Leftists Secretly Gathering for History Book Conference

Actually By Cassidy Pen

From The National Report, August 25, 2015

Students across America will soon be taught the far left’s take on American History should proposals agreed on during high-level closed door meetings ever see the light of day.

A secret panel has convened to re-write history books in accordance with Common Core principles under the direction of civil rights leaders and advocacy groups. Unconfirmed, but reported attendees of the conference include President Obama, Secretary of Education Arne Duncan, Morris Dees of the Southern Poverty Law Center, GLAAD Executive Director Sarah Kate Ellis, and members of the “Black Lives Matter” group.

Dr. Cornel West was invited to the conference, but a prior commitment made him unavailable.

The meeting is being hosted by the Howard Zinn Education Project, which coordinates two non-profit organizations advocating what they claim to be “more accurate, complex, and engaging understanding of American History.” In other words, prepare for a socialist indoctrination of your children underwritten by one of the furthest left authors in American History…a naked socialist, if you will.

Topics of special urgency among the attendees include the Constitutional Convention, Causes of the Civil War, the 1960’s radical anti-war and civil rights movements, and a thorough rethinking of the Reagan Administration. The gathering wishes to expunge God from society and classify the Constitution as a secular document. The Civil War would be looked at as a class struggle, as will other noble wars fought during our nation’s growing period and development as a world leader. Special praise to the radical 60’s peace and civil rights movements and equal disdain for the Reagan Revolution are also proposed.

This is the kind of garbage that your children will be learning should this revisionist history be forced down their throats.

Howard Zinn, author of the popular screed, “The People’s History of the United States,” advocates abject Socialism under the guise of how America has oppressed working people, women, and minorities through a discriminatory capitalist system that rewards the rich and “continues to steal from everyone else.”

Happy Fifth Anniversary to Us! (NSFW)

Today is the American Hysterical Society’s five-year (or 60-month, 1,825th-day, 43,800th-hour, 2,628,000th-minute, or 157,680,000th-second) anniversary! If the AHS were a child, according to some and among other things, we would want to please our friends, be like our friends, and agree with rules. We don’t actually want those things, but at this age we’d be able to do them if we did.

It’s been an amazing five years for us. We have published 658 posts, logged almost 73,000 visits, and assembled the largest catalog of humorous history and museum books, essays, cartoons, links, and songs on the planet. Not bad for a museum that doesn’t pay for collections or advertise itself.

That said, it has been a difficult year for us. The Society’s staff has gotten a little off-focus. Partly that’s because we have been thinking about some bigger projects (a series of books actually) which has taken time away from our daily work. We apologize for any inconvenience or boredom this has caused. We hope to remedy the situation with a series of strategic retreats and layoffs.

Still, as any five-year-old we like gifts. The traditional five-year anniversary gift is wood. With that in mind we would like to ask, in case you were thinking of getting us something, for these:

Not only are they rare examples of historic material culture, they are doubly suited to this particular anniversary.

Dean Swift on the Secrets of Interpretation

His digressions are more eloquent than most days-long conferences.

To those museum professionals who think they have discovered a new way to engage visitors, that is to entertain them, we offer the following.

And to those professionals who say education is the sole and perpetual purpose of museums, until those others dumbed it down, we offer the following.

The following is Jonathan Swift’s “A Digression in the Modern Kind” from his 1710 work A Tale of the Tub. It seems your arguments and the thought that your thought is new are nothing new.

 

We whom the world is pleased to honour with the title of modern authors, should never have been able to compass our great design of an everlasting remembrance and never-dying fame if our endeavours had not been so highly serviceable to the general good of mankind. This, O universe! is the adventurous attempt of me, thy secretary;

“Quemvis perferre laborem Suadet, et inducit noctes vigilare serenas.”

To this end I have some time since, with a world of pains and art, dissected the carcass of human nature, and read many useful lectures upon the several parts, both containing and contained, till at last it smelt so strong I could preserve it no longer. Upon which I have been at a great expense to fit up all the bones with exact contexture and in due symmetry, so that I am ready to show a very complete anatomy thereof to all curious gentlemen and others. But not to digress further in the midst of a digression, as I have known some authors enclose digressions in one another like a nest of boxes, I do affirm that, having carefully cut up human nature, I have found a very strange, new, and important discovery: that the public good of mankind is performed by two ways–instruction and diversion. And I have further proved my said several readings (which, perhaps, the world may one day see, if I can prevail on any friend to steal a copy, or on certain gentlemen of my admirers to be very importunate) that, as mankind is now disposed, he receives much greater advantage by being diverted than instructed, his epidemical diseases being fastidiosity, amorphy, and oscitation; whereas, in the present universal empire of wit and learning, there seems but little matter left for instruction. However, in compliance with a lesson of great age and authority, I have attempted carrying the point in all its heights, and accordingly throughout this divine treatise have skilfully kneaded up both together with a layer of utile and a layer of dulce.


A Visit to the Barbie Museum

Because of one’ girl’s excitement (and the need for bathroom breaks) one family stops at the Barbie Museum where they get the full museum experience – discussions on revisionist history, animated interactives, even a gift shop!
