Conservative school boards and lawmakers in states such as Texas and Colorado have alleged that Advanced Placement U.S. History is “anti-American” because it does not censor negative events in our history, but according to Doctor Ben Carson the threat is much greater than any of us realize.
CARSON: “A whole section on slavery and how evil we are. A whole section on Japanese internment camps and how we slaughtered millions of Japanese with our bombs. A whole section on how we wiped out American Indians with no mercy
I mean I think most people, when they finished that course, they’d be ready to go sign up for ISIS. This is what we’re doing to the young people in our nation. And we have got to stop this silliness.
Holy shitballs. You mean an entire generation of young Americans are ready to sign up for ISIS because they learned that slavery was evil?
Given that Advanced Placement U.S History has been offered by the College Board under the Advanced Placement Program since 1955, the threat could be even greater than the esteemed doctor tells us.
If you listen closely you can hear a man in the background laughing his goddamn ass off after Carson says the AP standards will make you want to join ISIS.
I shared the same reaction.
