Governor DeSantis, thank you for your proposal on classroom instruction that “prohibits making people feel discomfort, guilt, anguish on account of race, color, sex or national origin.”
As an American (my national origin):
I feel guilt over use of the atomic bomb that led to death and destruction at Hiroshima.
I feel discomfort about the vicious tactics perpetrated on the labor movement in the 1800s.
I feel anger studying the Reagan Revolution that rewarded the rich at the expense of everyone else
.I feel anguish about the Gilded Age. Don’t make me read about it.
I feel disgust for the lies that got us into the Iraq war.Your prohibition will protect me from having to learn our full history or the truth of our past
