Here is the thirteenth article in our Republicans on Parade series, featuring individuals who personify what the Republican Party has become. Today’s honoree is Mitch Daniels for using his position to try to censor what Americans are allowed to learn, at the college level, no less!

Terrifying photo TC – are they now equal opportunity racists – ie not just men but women too? Heaven help us (said with feeling)! Note the 'bravery' of one doing the Third Reich salute – and hiding behind his white sheet on the RHS (appropriate placing!).

I quite agree on the subject of education and the horrible Mitch Daniels – censorship is not good – as you rightly say, those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Evil machine refuses to copy my comment from PP. Sorry - can't retype it!

This is typical of the psychopathic corporate/Republican/abuser/user mentality - lie/cheat/PR/censor - blind-siding the unaware by re-writing history is so much easier...

Censorship is one of the great evils in which evil engages, and a trademark of their kind.

(Just to mention, I've been having some problems over recent months and my puter has as well - with luck, I'll catch up on messages and whatnot as I have energy/ability to do so, with apologies to those further back in the pile, although I've been having issues with freezing and the puter simply not working for variable periods following a double move in a short period of time which I suspect may have again joggled something this time more slightly loose on an elderly system.)

And knowing that Fox News is so so willing to pay lots of lots of money for it!

It seems that Mitch Daniels wants to return to the Third Reich's book burnings! What a putz!

Talk about dumbing down the electorate! Faux Noise and Limbarf etc are bad enough, but to promote censorship, to promote a bunch of automotons is downright scary.

Bu$h League placement of the worst to destroy the best has become business as usual. People MUST educate their children Outside of "Education", so that they can learn to Question intelligently & not just regurgitate bull$hit for an easy A.

Sigh.......pushing stuff out of the way of my 'Bang Head Here" bullseye......

History is indeed repeating itself.....now all we need is the Reishtag Fire...or another Krystal Nacht...and we'll be good to go......to Hell that is.

Commence headbanging.....now.

These threads remind me of Saturday morning cartoons. You folks need to pay more attention to the man you elected to lead our country. Too painful? I feel your pain. At best, threads like these are on a third grade level.

Even if they weren't wearing the KKK garb, the picture captures their true attitude. We need to be reminded of our past, and frequently, to avoid repeating mistakes. Unfortunately, those who are spreading the hate and discontent probably don't think history is important. Thanks for the article, TomCat.

What an excellent personification!

Valuable story!
But, I must thank this other Mitch, as I did not know of this Zinn and his book, prior to this.
the book list grows faster than I can read!
This, also, is the kind of thing behind the GOPster attack on the Dep't of Education, and the like: they do not want people learning to think for themselves, rather "Just accept the received wisdom WE provide, and shut the hell up!"

Another example of old school politics and discrimination. How sad...and scary.

I am not at all surprised by Daniels double speak.

Thanks to all except the obvious response to fact with insult.

Kudos to Pat, Mitchell, and Nameless.

At the site, Nameless shared an excellent quote from Daniels about the need to teach controversy, revealing the depth of his hypocrisy.

Let us not forget the Texas Board of Education and their insistence on revisionist/fake history, which sets the parameters for a lot of the US as the largest market for Educational materials. One must also remember the deliberate revisionist approach of the Red/Confederate States to their "Celebration of the 150th Anniversary of the Confederacy" by erasing slavery et alia from the history they wished to celebrate. And we would be remiss to ignore the Repug/Tea Bagged/Christian Taliban of America/Corporate Alliance promotion of their Anti-Science Pro-Ignorance agenda through continuously insisting that Creationism/Intelligent Design be taught as Science and Fact not religious dogma based entirely on belief and faith.

Amen to that, Lloyd. I've covered that one more than once.
