Sunday Funday: Abraham Lincoln & Darwin’s Birthday Edition

It’s about time for that annual dog sledding competition in Alaska (March 4). Here are not some of the contestants (3:15):

Ironic that we celebrate the birthdays of these two giants of humanity as the radically right wing Republican Party is doing all it can to rewrite real history and has forever been in the forefront of denying science and especially evolution.

Kind of mind-boggling that the Party that was started in response to slavery is now trying to ban books and histories that discuss the reality of what slavery was and the aftermath of slavery in our country. They want to ignore the reality because it might make white children feel bad about their ancestry.

I went to a private church related high school and here I am 60 years later still mad that my school lied to me about so many things, including history. Like most people, kids want the truth and will be mad when they find out they have been lied to. It is amazing that this is a response that has yet to have a backlash in the Republican Party.
