Chicago State Rep Calls To ABOLISH History Classes!

Illinois State Rep Lashawn K. Ford, who resides in the Chicago area, held a press conference in suburban Evanston in which he called to abolish history classes throughout the state. Ford says no history classes should be taught again until a suitable replacement was implemented. Ford’s office released a news release entitled “Rep. Ford Today in Evanston to Call for the Abolishment of History Classes in Illinois Schools.”

The Chicago-area Illinois State rep’s explanation behind his desire to abolish history is all-too-familiar in today’s day and age. Ford says that the current history curriculum leads to a racist society and overlooks the works of minorities and women. In the news release from Ford’s office, it reads: “I’m calling on the Illinois State Board of Education and local school districts to take immediate action by removing current history books and curriculum practices that unfairly communicate our history.

Indoctrination Nation

The reality behind Lashawn K. Ford’s request is that he desires to simply indoctrinate children in Illinois schools, not properly educate them. Another quote from Ford’s news release proves the aforementioned point: “Until a suitable alternative is developed, we should instead devote greater attention toward civics and ensuring students understand our democratic processes and how they can be involved.” Civics class is a thing, so why must Illinois abolish history classes to teach civics? Moreover, why must civics be taught in the manner that Lashawn Ford mandates?

Answers to the previous questions are very easy to come up with to anyone who is paying any attention at all to the current climate of the United States. Modern-day book-burnings are happening right now in Portland, Oregon – no different than 1930s Germany. The new and “woke” history curriculum might want to leave that pesky detail out.

Good Old-Fashioned Book Burning

How would existing history books be disposed of to usher in the new curriculum? A book-burning might even be suggested here. Why not? Better than throwing tons of books into a landfill and it serves a symbolic purpose. To cleanse the nation of hateful messaging and imagery. Similar to those who burn not only books, but flags and crosses. Lashawn Ford would probably love to burn a very specific flag described in his news release: “I’m also alarmed that people continue to display symbols of hate, such as the recent display of the Confederate flag in Evanston.”

An “aggressive” or “hateful” display of the confederate flag has absolutely nothing to do with history. History is simply a re-telling and study of prior events in history. Civics and social studies are classes that focus on the behavior of people. There is simply no need to abolish history classes to bolster the other two existing courses. But then again, ideology is a thing that schools don’t necessarily teach. Maybe that is the actual endgame here.

  1. “Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” ― George Orwell, 1984

  2. Kids today do not have an understanding of what happened during the Communist party’s reign of terror in Russia, and they do not know about the horrors that occurred there. They do not understand that millions of people died in the Ukraine during the rule of Stalin because of killing of the kulaks over their successful farming practices. I mean, how could they? If they did have a proper understanding of these historical events they could surely see how communism is a failed political system that has absolutely no place in our current economic system in the States. History is a very valuable tool to determine paths we should avoid in our day in age.

  3. Illinois has already dropped the academic standards for high school graduation to a year of the basics and 3 years of nothing and now the one discipline that can save us for repetition of previous transgressions they wish to eliminate. These young people do not grasp the terrors of war and its consequences, they are being spoon fed this revisionist history and as they have no concept of independent thought they grab on to whatever message that gives them no obligation or responsibility for their own actions. If Communism is so great why do so many immigrate from China and Russia to the United States? This common sense analysis is beyond their grasp. Frankly we should buy all these protesters that think Communism is so great a one way ticket to China or Russia. We don’t need to waste money on a return ticket as they will not last I guess they could enjoy it but more likely incarcerated. Maybe it is time for tough love.

  4. history’s already history, you dumb bunny. the younger generations know j a c k s h i t about anything, thanks to you liberals.

    (J a c k S h i t was, as everybody knows, president of the Western Confederacy when they beat the East in the Civil War.)

  5. History has always been written by the those who came out on top. The view of those that lost is still shown but, from the view point of those that won. This gives a perspective of what was done to come out on top and what did not work (right or wrong). That being said, we should not stop the teachings of history. As I’m sure many have heard that if you do not learn from history you are doomed to repeat it. So what I hear from the ideas to stop teaching history until a new curriculum can be written; is that some want to alter or change how history is seen, learned and understood. This same ideal was tried by Hitler. Mold the mind of the youth to fit into your agenda.?. I would agree that more can be added into the history books but, we must understand that students in grade school through high school only have so much time in a day to be educated and retain the knowledge bestowed upon them. Do not stop teaching history or change history to best fit your agenda!!!

  6. Horrible that people are still trying to justify this. You don’t put your knee in someone neck as their life drains from their body even if they are high or having an anxiety attack. You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to know this. They could have de-escalated the situation – it was already under control once he was cuffed.
