Not content material with being a toddler starvation denier, Minnesota State Sen. Steve Drazkowski (R) needs kids in his state to be as blind to historical past as he’s by stopping them from being taught about genocide in opposition to Native People within the state.
His try at rewriting historical past includes blocking SF 2442, a invoice that goals to show center and highschool college students concerning the Holocaust and genocides. Drazkowski would not let his self-processed ignorance get in the best way of spouting ahistorical “both-sides” nonsense about white settlers dying in genocidal slaughters perpetrated by Native People.
“You recognize — and I grew up in Wisconsin, so I am not a historian of Minnesota,” he stated on the senate flooring, “however I do perceive that the genocides between the white individuals and the Indians going again included, type of a number of genocides every means.”
Maybe Drazkowski ought to take a cue from his personal phrases and go away historical past classes to historical past lecturers.
