Facing A Problem With Humor

No doubt you have heard of various efforts to push extreme policies only to be ridiculed to death by the intended victims and their sympathizers on facebook or twitter or other social media. This week we had an absolutely hilarious response to the right wing school board of Jefferson County (Denver area), Colorado being ridiculed for their attempt to remove all that nasty stuff from American History classes, like civil rights and how bad slaves were treated and how the labor movement was crushed at every turn.

I am not sure if the tweeters on this thread are students or not, but they definitely have enough knowledge of the subject to make the school board look like the utter fools they must be.

Remember the Alamo, but forget that they were fighting to expand slavery in other countries.

Many, many more here. But I warn you, be prepared for some of the funniest, most original stuff you have seen in a long time. Then let it sink in how these folks attacked a ludicrous, unnecessary problem with a really potent weapon.

In the end I am reminded of Mark Twain’s take on school boards:
In the first place, God made idiots. That was for practice. Then he made school boards.
