Huckabee's latest huckstering: History

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.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
