For two weeks, the Obama administration tried to pawn the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on our foreign mission in Benghazi, Libya as a demonstration that got out of hand. This despite the fact that four Americans were killed in the onslaught, including our Ambassador to Libya.
Compare that to the Boston Tea Party, one of the great moments in our nation’s history. This was an act of protest Boston patriots engaged in to demonstrate against the excessive tea tax England imposed on the colonies.
According to CBS Houston:
As recently as January of this year, the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative included a lesson plan that depicted the Boston Tea Party, an event that helped ignite the American Revolution, as an act of terrorism. TheBlaze reports that in a lesson promoted on the TESCCC site as recently as January, a world history/social studies class plan depicted the Boston Tea Party as being anything but patriotic, causing many people to become upset with the lack of transparency and review for lessons
The students are taught, “A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port.”
It continues as follows:
“Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities.
“It is believed that the terrorist attack was a response to the policies enacted by the occupying country’s government. Even stronger policies are anticipated by the local citizens.”
America has indeed fallen down a rabbit hole where right is wrong, up is down and left is right.
