    Imagine a trumpublican claiming something has no truth.

    Is race a social construct?

    Of course that is the problem, but for some mysterious reason thats not what is being addressed. Where are the nut job Thanksgiving Truther parents screaming at school board meetings? All too busy making sure that the books in the school library aren’t turning their kids trans.

    Exactly. Why preserve the lies?

    It makes us feel good about ourselves and helps us ignore the uglier parts of our past. That's why and I know you know that.
    Let’s get this done!

    Oh definitely.

    I don’t think people understand that the lines between history and mythology (and religion for that matter) has always been blurred. We are only recently starting to unblur it by looking beyond the stories we’ve been told to original sources.

    I love that Sailor is here to deliver the unabashed fear-laden viewpoint. He is being honest, and he is honestly fucking terrified to his core that proponents of CRT have a Marxist agenda and intend to turn our kids into Communists, the truth be damned. jh is too chickenshit or maybe just more clever than sailor and tries pitifully to ram his bootstraps-fix-all solution because he views everything through a financial prism.

    I think it was Al Franken in his book probably 20 years ago described these people as loving America the way toddlers love their parents: "My parents are the best and smartest and most awesome parents in the world and if you say otherwise you're just wrong and I hate you" and he was right.

    It is incomprehensible to them that one could love America and believe she is the greatest nation ever created and simultaneously acknowledge her atrocities, lies, and horrific injustices in order to learn and teach and aspire to greater heights.

    nah, gotta whitewash that shit and polish the turd. cowards, the lot

    Lol The first thanksgiving happened because a small group of fringe Christian lunatics shot their guns in the air and were soon outnumbered by indigenous people provoked for war and to diffuse their fuck up they offered a meal. No wonder they prefer the gooey version.

    Once you understand that Christian extremists have always been at the heart of US political mythology, the current state of politics makes sense.

    Yep.

    Some people prefer to be lied to. It’s a trip, man
