No Americans Allowed
The Michigan Department of Education is attempting to ban the word "America" and "American" from its public schools.
The Department of Education asserts that "Americans" includes Mexicans, Canadians and others in the Western Hemisphere, so referring to U.S. residents as Americans is inappropriate.Don’t “educators“ have anything better to do with their time? I’d say unbelievable, but I have long since realized that leftist have taken over American public schools, colleges and universities. As the author of the article, Michael Warren, a Circuit Court judge, a former member of the State Board of Education and a board member of the Michigan Center for Civic Education said:
According to the department, before the American Revolution, George Washington, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson were North Americans. But so were the French colonists in the Louisiana Territory, the Spanish settlers in Mexico and the British colonists in Canada -- not to mention the Native Americans.
The American Revolution is now the North American Revolution.
What people in the United States are to be called after the Revolution is not clear, so long as they are not referred to as Americans.
The Michigan Department of Education considers the dictate "internationally friendly." Why being friendly to an international audience or perspective is important in teaching and learning American history is incomprehensible.
Censoring the word "America" from our own schools is something Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Osama bin Laden would never have thought possible. Michigan has done it without a whimper.It’s enough to make you sick. Hey, but at least it wasn’t New Jersey. Not yet anyway.
