...is an Iniquitous Ministry of Pain.
It's been a good while, friends. Lately I've been experimenting with making a more conscious effort to live life instead of just writing about it, and it has regrettably gouged a nice big hole into the time I used to dedicate to both this site and my own projects. You may not even remember me.
As I write this the date is March 18th, 2010. Until the end of May I shall dictate a series of short articles outlining what I honestly believe to be a modern injustice facing every citizen of the United States of America. Contrary to popular belief and my own infrequent declarations, I can sometimes be prodded into actually caring about the exotic ills which befall this defunct and arid moor we like to call a nation.
Right now in some deep, cavernous pit beneath the surface of the earth the Texas State Board of Education is plotting the future indoctrination and subsequent peonage of the children of the United States through a series of remarkable amendments exercised upon every textbook submitted before their nefarious council. Their glossy cataracts are set to survey the very fabric of our educational system with all the jaundiced apprehension of a discontented sycophant. Their gnarled extremities are now poised to disconnect any feasible attempt at objective understanding with deadly volition.
Among those historical and social mainstays facing reform or annihilation:
Thomas Jefferson and his volatile concept of religious freedom: GONE
“I reject the notion by the left of a constitutional separation of church and state,” said David Bradley, a conservative from Beaumont who works in real estate. “I have $1,000 for the charity of your choice if you can find it in the Constitution.”
Great Society, Title IX and Affirmative Action legislation: DISTORTED
Students are now required to study the 'unintended consequences' of legislation designed to impede prejudiced and racist ideals. There has been no clarification yet offered as to what these consequences may or may not be.
The Institution of Marriage: DISTORTED
Gender-neutral terms describing marriage rights will not be published. Instead, the official working definition of marriage shall be 'a union between a man and a woman'.
Hispanics who fought in the Battle of the Alamo: GONE
The council voted to reject a motion requiring that history standards include by name the Tejanos who died in the fall of the Alamo.
Internment of Japanese Americans during World War II: DISTORTED
110,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned alongside 2,000 Germans and a few hundred Italian Americans after Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor. According to the council, the fact that a paltry minority of other nationalities were imprisoned by the United States invalidates any claim that this was fueled by racism.
The Cultural Relevance of Hip-Hop: GONE
Not that it was ever included anyway, supposedly due to the offensive nature of rap lyrics. Fuck the police, and fuck these groveling parasites and their shiny golden delusion of white America.
The term 'Capitalism': GONE
They are electing to implement 'free enterprise' or 'free market' to replace any reference to capitalism, which removes any negative connotation associated with the term.
And yes, this is but a sensual fucking taste of what is to come. As we progress we will take a closer look into the beliefs, job descriptions, past controversies and apparent motivations of the dreaded council's individual members as well as the potential consequences of allowing such blatantly tainted trite to infect any aspect of our education system. This is beyond politics. This is about preserving what little integrity the principles of enlightenment and free exchange still possess in this wasteland.
I am making every effort to organize a demonstration in Austin, Texas sometime before the final vote in May to combat this insidious encroachment. If any of you, and I mean absolutely any one at all, may be interested and can commit to attending you may contact me here, at my website, or on Twitter (@GodlessFellow).
Thanks for your time, guys, and for everything you do.
