Propaganda as History

The state of Illinois just passed the largest tax increase in its history and is still bankrupt. Murderers run rampant in Chicago. The middle class is fleeing the state in droves. Businesses, too.

You would think a state with all these serious problems wouldn’t have time for anything as idiotic as passing a law mandating schools teach “LGBTQDQ History.” You would be wrong.

I find myself wondering, the LGBTQDQ History curricula mandated in California, Illinois, and other places… does it teach kids the truth? Or does it teach a politically correct mythology?

Are they taught that the Stonewall Riot erupted when police involved in a legitimate law enforcement exercise (closing down a mafia-run bar that was selling liquor without a license) were attacked by a mob? Or are they taught the version that the evil police were harassing gay people and gay people pushed back?

Are they taught that Harvey Milk was a sleazy pederast who preyed on teenage runaways and was a vocal supporter of the Revered Jim “Kool-Aid Cult” Jones? Or are they taught that he was a courage gay political pioneered murdered by a bigot?

Are they taught that AIDS was spread by promiscuous irresponsible sex? Or are they taught that AIDS was caused by President Reagan not saying the word ‘AIDS?’

Does it teach the truth that Matthew Shepard was a drug user who got murdered by his dealer for reasons only tangentially related to his sexuality? Or are they taught that he was a victim of hate and bigotry from intolerant conservatives?

Are they learning history or propaganda, is the question. We know they won’t be learning math, science, and literacy, that’s for true.

  1. Any HIV/AIDS organisation worth their weight in salt will teach that abstinence is the only 100% effective method to avoid STDs, with proper prophylactic contraception use, limiting sexual partners, curbing risky sexual behaviours, and using PrEP as additional highly effective (but not fool-proof) methods to reduce the likelihood of contracting STDs.

  2. We have it so good with our leftists do-gooders in this country, I’m surprised there aren’t more of us going on our knees and bowing down to them with flows of tears of gratitude —

    under other latitudes, easy to make daily-to-yearly extrapolations have it there will be near two millions Venezuelans fleeing to Brazil and Colombia this year,

    don’t the disingenuous-you (or I) dare make the heartless correlation with that innovative new requirement for their doctors to stop reporting the numbers of children dying of starvation or of insufficient care in their government-run hospitals.

    Looks like it ain’t real socialism over there, though — as they haven’t managed to kill enough people quite yet.

    Wait, what? What do you mean by that?

    And what about Bill Nye, the New York Times, and Salon?

  4. OT —

    An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician are shown a pasture with a herd of sheep. They are told to put the sheep inside an area delimited by the smallest possible amount of fence.

    The engineer is first. He herds the sheep into a circle and then puts the fence around them, declaring, “a circle is the curve which will use the least fence for a given area, so this is the best solution.”

    The physicist is next. She creates a circular fence of infinite radius around the sheep, and then draws the fence tight around the herd, declaring, “this ends up using the smallest circular fence around the herd, so this is the best solution.”

    The mathematician is last. After giving the problem a little thought, he makes a small fence around himself and declares, “I define myself to be on the outside of the fence.”

  6. Dan White should have been executed brutally, and so should Matthew Shepard’s killers.

Or are they taught the version that the evil police were harassing gay people and gay people pushed back?”

    The second version is actually true, but what we’ll get is the “gays did nothing, trannies did everything” version.

    Actually, that’s on topic. A circular fence solves the wrong problem.* Which is what V t K said when he wrote: “Are they learning history or propaganda, is the question. We know they won’t be learning math, science, and literacy, that’s for true.”

  10. It really is a long way from the AIDS “epidemic” to wedding cakes, isn’t it.

    Progressivism is singularly duplicitous. Progressives love them some controversy piety music to set them off marching heroically. The Progressive puppet masters play them for the useful idiots which they are.

    Currently, the Progressives are treating Smarmy Spaniel like the Venus de Philo. This walking, talking cow sized vagina has a birth canal that has been used as an interstate and digitally preserved for-horny-ever. Yet, she is the embodiment of pussy hat Progressivism because … Trump. Progressives look upon her as the most useful idiot at hand.

    Many gays have lost their useful idiot utility because they have become wise to the games Progressives play. They are joining the great mass of gays who have always valued principle over practiced chutzpah.

    The more the state burdens the politically correct curriculum with passion instead of principle, the more it resembles the religion that it has become. Eventually, the state has to force feed its tripe. The curriculum masters do not want to preserve the status quo, they want to overthrow it. That makes the state the master and the people dependent. The state knows that the little people come worship the state out of dread and because obedience is rewarded.

    The “liberal arts” on a vast majority of college campuses have already given into censorship and punishment. Deceivers will always have a ready supply of those eager to be deceived. That is why there are so many “victims” popping up in the world of the Progressives. The victim pimps are everywhere.

    Progressives have built their religion on a foundation of quicksand. Since everything is relative to the situation and the moment, everything is in the constant flux of change and nothing is predictable. Thus, the ruling power is the power of fear. Progressives are always kissing each other’s butts out of an innate fear that their own butts will be kicked if they don’t. It is a pure herd mentality.

    So, propaganda as history, as curriculum, as news is how the Progressives move the herd of useful idiots.

    Those of us who don’t play the Progressive game look at Rachel Madcow, Mike Barnacle, Don the Lemon and The View wonder who believes their drivel. That is because we are not Progressive useful idiots coming to the trough for another swig of Progressive piety punch.

    Does anyone know a good-time, happy Progressive at ease with the non-Progressive world? Every Progressive I know is hair-triggered to control the narrative and is thin-skinned about anything that approaches challenging the narrative. But don’t kid yourself about their “kindness.” They are power hungry madmen and you are their enemy.

  11. @9 – Indeed, but that is an message needing to get past the usual herd pushing the college mythology (and parents who don’t think for themselves).

    @10 – Wise words indeed.

    It will be so good when this writer can walk himself out of the state of Illinois. When you spend time around much of the folk of this state – you understand how bad a bad education can be. And not just in failing to understand the difference of red and black of a account record.

  12. Any High School that claims 98% of their graduates are going to college is:

    a. Lying.
    B. Not doing their job correctly.
    c. Both of the above*

    [* – That would be too easy and letting them off.]

    Rope, tree limbs, telephone poles; some assembly required.

  13. @ 7, weren’t both versions of that story true regarding Stonewall?

  14. Progressives are like the souls of the morally irresolute in Dante’s Inferno: they are constantly chasing after a goal they can never reach. Nothing will ever be simply enough for them. I doubt all of them see their movement for what it is: a means of controlling others. But I have encountered others who have frankly, and proudly, said, “People can’t be allowed to make their own decisions, they aren’t smart enough.” And when I ask them, “And I guess you should be making the decisions for them,” they blink at me like I’ve just realized the sky is blue and say, “Well, obviously.”

    Socialism is envy. Fascism is wrath. Progressivism is pride. You need only look at those who extoll them to know the truth.

  15. @10 yet another great comment

    Deceivers will always have a ready supply of those eager to be deceived. That is why there are so many “victims” popping up in the world of the Progressives. The victim pimps are everywhere.

    Indeed, it all looks like the boom of a Victimhood Industry (*).

    As for the bust — well, thank you for your patience.

  18. From my fresh immigrant vantage point, though, this country truly is a Standing Giant of Paradoxe who nevertheless has an uncanny way to regenerate his resilience throughout the People — mind you, Chicago is also that peculiar place where individuals like Milo’s friend Rachel Fulton Brown do not seem to be willing to surrender to their surreal environment’s dementia:

    So I’m staying hopeful that the late 1960s influence of our french postmodernist scumbags hasn’t got this country to start rotting at its core yet — and by a long shot, thank God for that.

  20. “La bêtise humaine consiste à avoir beaucoup d’idées, mais des idées bêtes. Et on reconnaît l’homme libre à ce qu’il est attaqué simultanément ou successivement par les partis opposés.

    Il y a les hommes qui se respectent, et ceux qui ne se respectent pas. Ces derniers sont les éternels vainqueurs.”

    Henry de Montherlant (1895-1972), Carnets

    “Foolishness consists in having many ideas which are preposterous. And one can recognize the free man as he is attacked simultaneously or successively by opposite parties.

    There are men with self-respect, and men without it. The latter are the eternal winners.”

  21. Are they taught that Harvey Milk was a sleazy pederast who preyed on teenage runaways and was a vocal supporter of the Revered Jim “Kool-Aid Cult” Jones? Or are they taught that he was a courage gay political pioneered {sic} murdered by a bigot?

    Can’t they be taught both?

    [Yes, I know what the practical, everyday answer to that question is.]

  25. I notice that the two big states mandating LBGTQ curriculum are both suffering massive financial problems made worse by massive taxes. Perhaps they are using the LBGTQ community as a smokescreen to distract from their financial mess.
