Huckabee's latest huckstering: History

Posted By on Wed, May 11, 2011 at 4:21 PM

THE RIGHT STUFF: Ronald Reagan will be prominently featured, of course.
  • THE RIGHT STUFF: Ronald Reagan will be prominently featured, of course.

For the sucker born every minute, Mike Huckabee has a get-rich scheme a minute.

Thanks to the Tolbert Report for news of a new Huckabee enterprise. It's called Learn Our History. It's a company peddling American history through a cartoon video series, with the proper emphasis and restoration of the good stuff the dirty commie teachers won't tell you. And, best of all, no more pencils, no more books, no more teachers' dirty looks:

It's widely accepted that kids learn best through experience. But, unfortunately, the only way kids are experiencing history today is by having it force-fed to them through dry text books, monotonous lectures and boring lessons. On top of that, our children's classes and learning materials are often filled with misrepresentations, including historical inaccuracies, personal biases and political correctness.

With this knowledge, we set out to create the most experiential history product ever - one that would make it easy and fun for kids to understand American history, while remaining true to the facts and free from distorted messages that dilute the significance of our nation's most important stories.

The website lists Brad Saft, apparently a young New York investments executive, as co-founder. Surely David Barton is lurking on the team somewhere.

Don't delay. Moneyback guarantee. History as it was meant to be told.

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
