Republican presidential candidate Rick "The Frothy" Santorum believes the recent revelation that history is American student's worst subject is actually a sign of a secret liberal plot to impose new values on them.
We don’t even know our own history. There was a report that just came out last week that the worst subject of children in American schools is — not math and science — its history. It’s the worst subject. How can we be a free people. How can we be a people that fight for America if we don’t know who America is or what we’re all about. This is, in my opinion, a conscious effort on the part of the left who has a huge influence on our curriculum, to desensitize America to what American values are so they are more pliable to the new values that they would like to impose on America.
Always accuse your enemies of doing exactly what it is you are doing.
Low scores in history are not caused by the defunding of education, the revision of said history, or the trendiness among conservative circles of being a know-nothing. It's all the fault of those damned Lefties.
Conservatism is a mental illness.
