It appears that California’s state senate has passed a law that will require the teaching of gay history and rights. The law is predicted to pass the assembly with ease, seeing as though it is controlled by the Democrats, and Governor Jerry Brown is also expected to sign it in to law. A fleeting glance at the comment section of the above article is quite disturbing. Here’s a sample of the Republican drivel (my bold):
This the inevitable results of the socialist state usurping the rights of the parent. A ploy to control the masses used by other fascist movements like Nazi Germany , Communist China and the Soviet Union. In a free society the educational system teaches a child how to think in a collectivist society the educational system teaches a child what to think. The proletariats of California are now reaping the harvest of what they themselves have sown and Comrade Brown will sign it into law.
As I pointed out, the comments on the above article are absolutely ridiculous. A lot of them say some variant of, “There is no such thing as gay history. There’s only history.”
Cheers to California and the Democrats for signing something into law that will actually enrich our society in the future. This is the reason I vote Democrat. Never in our lives will you see Republicans put forth a law like this. They are too busy trying to further limit the rights of minorities and other social classes.
