Traditionally History classes focused on real, as opposed to imagined U.S. history. The new Advanced Placement(AP) history curriculum represents hard-core Socialist and Marxist propaganda and indoctrination. The new curriculum grossly exaggerates and distorts both real or perceived historical injustices while presenting history in a socialistic collectivist mold. It denigrates and downplays Americas historical development and contributions to world society , no good by America is left untarnished and no extracted liberties left un-besmirched.
The curriculum represents a bizarre effort to represent America as a imperialistic racist oppressors . It trivializes and demonizes the Founding Fathers. Objective Scholars have claimed it represents an extreme distortion of America today and in its past.
Deleted from American History is Benjamin Franklin and the birth of American entrepreneurship - can't have capitalist ideas fuddling things up now can we ?
