Public Education in America: "Dec. 7, 1941 - A Day That Will Live in Germany!" ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Well, it's almost that day again. Almost every year I spend hours writing something about Pearl Harbor (or Hiroshima and Nagaski, etc.) attempting to give the truthful background on such events and not the propaganda that is taught in US public high schools.
And, invariably, I will be bombarded with comments by people who went to those high schools and "studied," and now believe - without question - said propaganda... Basically, about Pearl Harbor, the story goes along the lines of; "The dirty Japs bombed Pearl Harbor as a sneaky surprise attack. We were just standing there, minding our own business, not bothering anyone, and they bombed us! Out of the blue! Just like that! We hadn't done anything to them!"
(If you think this, ask yourself one question: "When has the USA ever minded their own business in international affairs?" Answer: "Never.")
Killing innocent women, men, and children in Hiroshima and Nagasaki has an excuse runs along the same lines of tortured logic and incorrect "facts," but I'll save that for summer. This year, I thought I'd spend a bunch of time (about three minutes on Photoshop) on an "original artwork" (picture) about said Pearl Harbor events....
Actually, this isn't so much about "said events," it is a critique of what is taught in public schools. It is a critique of the public education system.
This serves to compile all the arguments people usually send me about the reasons killing women and children were OK in Hiroshima and Nagasaki or Dresden or the firebombing of Tokyo.... (Or why it's the same excuses to this very day for bombing, killing, orphaning and maiming brown skinned children in the Middle East in at least seven nations today, 24/7...Bringing them freedom or fighting terrorism...)
When these people write to me with this ridiculous propaganda, there's really no point in arguing with many of them... They weren't taught reasoning and deduction in school... Nor, can you tell by what they wrote were they ever taught logic... Don't even get me started on their wretched grammar and diction - It's worse than mine!
So, here it is. In one little picture, my impression of 50% of the US public school graduates understanding of history... This covers all history subjects for them. (Laugh now, but it's probably much worse than 50% ~ probably in the 80s or 90s! See video below!)
You know, they say a picture speaks a thousand words...
