Whitewashing history is one of the only things Democrats are good at. In their minds, not teaching future generations about the past will make them more enlightened – or something.

From Daily Wire:

A recent report says more and more American teachers are refusing to teach William Shakespeare in their classrooms, citing alleged racism and intolerance.

Among those who have refused to teach is Claire Bruncke, who taught English at Ilwaco High School in Washington state. “I asked my principal if there was a requirement for how much Shakespeare I needed to cover,” she said, according to the Mail.

She said she was told if she taught the “standards,” she’d be fine, so she dropped Shakespeare completely.

Another teacher, Liz Matthews, who teaches ninth-grade English at Hartford Public High School in Connecticut — where the student body is 95% black or Hispanic — said she bailed on Shakespeare and replaced him with works by minority authors.

It’s almost as if these educators, who are almost certainly liberal, forget the history of the current commander-in-chief.

For example, Joe Biden once said: “There’s less than one percent of the population of Iowa that is African American. There is probably less than four of five percent that are minorities. What is in Washington? So look, it goes back to what you start off with, what you’re dealing with. When you have children coming from dysfunctional homes, when you have children coming from homes where there’s no books, where the mother from the time they’re born doesn’t talk to them — as opposed to the mother in Iowa who’s sitting out there and talks to them, the kid starts out with a 300-word larger vocabulary at age three. Half this education gap exists before the kid steps foot in the classroom.

A black man brutally beat an elderly Mexican-American woman on an L.A. bus reportedly because he thought she was an Asian woman. A 70-year-old woman of Mexican heritage was riding on an L.A. bus last week when, according to police, 23-year-old Yasmine Beasley attacked her. The victim’s family says that the attacker yelled an Asian slur at her as he attacked. “The victim’s son reportedly says that a female passenger, described as ‘black,’ called his mother an anti-Asian slur and then attacked her,” according to a report by KTLA. The woman’s family says that the man beat her in the face, severely hurt her lag, and pulled out some of her hair. Photos of the woman shows her face is heavily bruised. Per the station: The Mexican American victim was profiled as Asian by her attacker, who hurled a racial epithet used against people of Chinese descent before attacking the grandmother as she got off the bus to go grocery shopping, according to the son, who gave his name only as Pete. Beasley was charged with felony battery charges. Police reports show that Beasley is being held on a $130,000 bond and is due in court on Friday.

A Perfect Example How the Media Lies to Push a Left-Wing Agenda

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda.

Venture capitalist and novelist J.D. Vance has the perfect example of how the biased media lies to push their left-wing agenda. Vance, who wrote the popular book Hillbilly Elegy, reports that he decided to quit the board of directors of Kentucky green energy company AppHarvest. But after he resigned, the left-wing media began pushing the fake news tale that he left the board under a cloud because Bloomberg caused the company to force him out. This claim that he was forced out is a provable lie. But despite the truth, outlets including the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Lexington Herald Leader, The New York Post, Bloomberg and the Associated Press and more all pushed the lie as if it was incontrovertible fact. Bloomberg claimed that Vance was forced out because he posted “controversial tweets” which had prompted the Bloomberg to ask AppHarvest to account for Vance’s tweets. But this is false. Vance did post tweets that leftists would find “controversial,” but they were posted after he left the company. Vance finally went to Twitter to describe how the left-wing media lied about the situation. “Alright, here’s a story about how the media often shapes narratives instead of reporting the truth, and how a small untruth can morph into a lie that’s repeated again and again throughout the media bubble,” Vance wrote Friday on Twitter.
