How Conservatives Get History Wrong


We know how the Conservatives fight to keep Critical Thinking and science out of our schools and Creationism in them, but the Cons' War Against History is just as important to keep the voters' attention to the root beliefs of Conservatism: Trickle down economics and the elimination of regulatory oversight, aka as the Conservation of the rich and powerful...



The study of history exposes the criminality of Conservatism, of course...

"HNN Poll: 61% of Historians Rate the Bush Presidency Worst."


"As far as history goes and all of these quotes about people trying to guess what the history of the Bush administration is going to be, you know, I take great comfort in knowing that they don’t know what they are talking about, because history takes a long time for us to reach."— George W. Bush, Fox News Sunday, Feb10, 2008.

"A Pew Research Center poll released last week found that the share of the American public that approves of President George W. Bush has dropped to a new low of 28 percent.

"An unscientific poll of professional historians completed the same week produced results far worse for a president clinging to the hope that history will someday take a kinder view of his presidency than does contemporary public opinion.

"In an informal survey of 109 professional historians conducted over a three-week period through the History News Network, 98.2 percent assessed the presidency of Mr. Bush to be a failure while 1.8 percent classified it as a success..."

There are good reasons why the Cons don't want our kids to know anything about history, good reasons why they want a stupid electorate...



...because they really don't want our kids to make any unflattering comparisons with Conservatism and other nasty "isms."



If the Cons get our children young enough, reading may go out the window along with history...



...because for Conservatives, knowledge is a very dangerous thing - especially during election season.



And history isn't pleasant enough for most Conservatives...



...and their legacy suffers accordingly.



Especially for Cons like this mean old man...



Historical comparisons are quite embarrassing to Conservatives...



So the next time one of the Cons is harping on his love for your kids' education, understand that this is really what he really wants to do...



And why, you ask?  This is why...




********************

It seems amazing that the average voter would swallow the Conservative War Against History, but too many of the voters are Low Information Voters and know nothing about it.

As long as the Low Information Voter is clueless, he'll be known as the Wrong Information Voter, and the chances for the resurrection of the middle class is moot.

And as long as Conservatism is a legal "political party," the longer the Cons will steal from the poor to give to the rich.

Isn't it time to criminalize Conservatism?

"I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid
persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and
undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it."

John Stuart Mill, in a Parliamentary debate with the Conservative MP, John
Pakington, May 31, 1866.
