The Blaze reported that a Baltimore County school is currently under fire for a lesson presentation which drew parallels between President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and the totalitarian ideologies of Nazism and Communism.
The lesson slide garnering so much outrage shows depicts Trump with a caption that reads, “Wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall.” Beneath the Trump image and caption are two images, one of a swastika that reads “been there,” and the other image was one that reads “done that.”
The slide also read, “Oh that’s why it sounds so familiar!”
According to WBFF-TV, the image was presented in class on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Parents are fuming about this content.
“The biggest problem is pushing an agenda on 16-year-olds,” one parent told WBFF. “My understanding is that was just put up and it was left there for everyone to see the whole day.”
Republican State Representative Kathy Szeliga also found about this controversial lesson. She commented on Facebook, “Educational malfeasance of the highest degree. What is going on in our the Balt Co Public Schools????”
Baltimore County councilman Wade Kach said to WBFF, “To even imply that our president is in any way a Nazi or a communist is outrageous. Is this curriculum for AP? Is it a purchased curriculum? Is it one that our school system wrote? Where is it coming from? I just think that it’s irresponsible to post anything like this in a classroom.”
In a statement, Baltimore County schools broke the silence:
This slide was used as part of a lesson in an AP History course. The topics being discussed included World Wars and the attempts by some leaders to limit, or prevent migration, into certain countries. In isolation and out of context with the lesson, the image could be misunderstood. In our Advanced Placement (AP) classes, which are college level courses, we expect and encourage analysis and discussion around historical and current events even if they are considered controversial. This lesson was not intended to make a political statement. If a student has concerns when discussing a controversial issue, schools have the tools to address the concern and support the student.
However, it has yet to be determined who has created the slide. According to the WBFF report, the teacher did not create the slide. The Baltimore Sun also chimed in and said the school system did not make this slide.
The College Board, which is in charge of the AP program, does not set the curriculum for teachers.
Regardless of who made the slide, this incident just goes to show how politically biased public education has become. As the Left’s control over education grows stronger, conservatives will need to consider alternative education arrangements.
Cleveland Indians are Joining in the PC Radicalism by Discussing a Name Change
Even Major League Baseball is not exempt from political correctness.
The Washington Post reported that the Cleveland Indians are in the process of changing their name after the Washington Redskins announced their decision to review a potential name change before the NFL’s 2020 season.
“We are committed to making a positive impact in our community and embrace our responsibility to advance social justice and equality,” the Indians declared in a statement. “Our organization fully recognizes our team name is among the most visible ways in which we connect with the community. We have had ongoing discussions organizationally on these issues. The recent unrest in our community and our country has only underscored the need for us to keep improving as an organization on issues of social justice.”

According to a report from The Athletic, the Indians leadership is expecting to discuss the matter with Native American leaders, fans, players, alumni, and staff within the organization before making a final name change.
The Washington Post pointed out that “The club de-emphasized its “Chief Wahoo” logo in 2016 in favor of the red ‘Block C’ logo.”
“We do have empathy for those who take issue with it,” Indians owner Paul Dolan commented about the logo in 2016. “We have minimized the use of it, and we’ll continue to do what we think is appropriate.”
In the 2018 season, “Chief Wahoo” was eliminated and the team no longer uses the logo.
The degree of cultural radicalism America is going through in 2020 is off the charts.
The Left is moving at breakneck speed in its efforts to transform America in every possible way, while most of the Right stays asleep.
