A South Florida high school principal told a parent he “can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event.”Spanish River High School Principal William Latson made the remarkable comment in an email to the mother of a student while discussing history curriculum, according to The Palm Beach Post.“Not everyone believes the Holocaust happened,” Latson wrote in the email, adding that lessons are “not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs.”The principal explained that the school holds annual Holocaust assemblies and one-day lessons for 10th graders.

From the article what I infer was his attempt a following the principles of political correctness. In PC facts are not relevant. His answer was intended to avoid conflict between opposing views, facts be darned. He had to choose PC because in his little world he has to balance the two. I feel for him, but yeah, he chose poorly.

My entire life I have never understood how "Hitler" happened. I can now say, with the amazingly hateful and blind liberals I work with and I am around all the time, I see it. The lies they spew and the utterly false convictions they hold, are shocking to me, still. They also do not listen to anything that does not confirm what they believe. They have all the traits of a cult member.

There are 98,000 residents in Boca and at least 16 synagogues or 1::6K residents. If the tinfoil hat wearing Mr. Latson were not, er, um, well...you know...(gulp).

I've been pondering this since the story came out and I think I figured it out. Back in the Air Force if someone was so incompetent they were a danger to people or equipment, often they would promote them to a desk where they never touched the jets or the guns or the machines. I bet that's what happened here.

This wad of garbage and the gas eminating from his pie hole is more than proof enough that the department of education should be dismantled, the teachers unions shut down and not one thin dime of tax payer money should be cast into the farce of any level of public education. This is the offal they are brainwashing your kids with from preschool right up through college. End it now.

Whoever that public school principal is, him or her must have skipped all their history classes in high school and college not to have a plain understanding of the existence of the Holocaust and the millions of innocent lives that were snuffed out during that period of time in Central Europe.

America's educational system is a horrid failure, as evidenced by feral blacks, entitled millennials, and educators like this fool. Growing up, the father of my neighborhood friend had been an Army Medic in WWII and his unit was the one who freed Buchenwald Prison Camp. Being they found out he knew his way around a camera, they made him the unit photographer, as well. Rummaging around in his attic we found all types of souvenirs, including some old shoe boxes filled with black and white photographs. Many were photos of horrible war wounds, but then came the pictures of the camp. For those, like fool muslims, who claim it never happened but was a Jewish conspiracy, I saw, hogwash. Somehow that obscure neighbor of mine got together with the Jewish conspirators and hid those fake photos deep in his attic KNOWING that we would find them. Yeah, right. Fire this moron of a principal.

Since, as the Principal says lessons are “not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs”, does that mean that students no longer need to learn the LGBTQ lessons or about how Global Warming is settled scientific fact? Those lessons probably don't fall into this category for some reason.

Hours after President Donald Trump delivered a speech Monday afternoon at the White House touting his administration’s environmental record, U.S. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry appeared on Fox News to defend the president and push back on his far-left critics.The discussion began with Fox News host Martha MacCallum haranguing the former Texas governor about the president’s otherwise non-controversial decision to talk up his administration’s environmental record.“The fact that the president was even giving a speech on the environment raised a lot of eyebrows and had sort of critics going, ‘Really?

In his recent major policy speech at Georgetown University, Bernie Sanders repeatedly invoked the name of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. He hailed “the bold and visionary leadership” of FDR, recalling how “Roosevelt led a transformation of the American government and the American economy.”Sanders often cites Roosevelt as his role model and the New Deal as the template for Sanders’s vision of America. Yet at Georgetown, as on so many other occasions, there was one important area of Roosevelt’s policies that Sanders conspicuously failed to mention: immigration. Sanders favors a much more liberal U.S. immigration policy. Not Roosevelt. In fact, FDR’s immigration policy was so strict that if Sanders’s father, Eli,

The “Jesus was a Palestinian” claim is one frequently made by supporters of the Palestinian cause, for political purposes. Sarsour kicked off the row with a Friday night tweet, saying, “Jesus was Palestinian of Nazareth and is described in the Quran as being brown copper skinned with wooly hair.”
