They are going to revise this disgusting assignment. I predict they will just replace "holocaust" with "9/11," "Nazis" with "freedom fighters," and "Jews" with "little Eichmanns."
The Rialto school district planned to revise an eighth-grade assignment that raised red flags by asking students to consider arguments about whether the Holocaust - the systematic killing by the Nazis of some 6 million Jews and millions of others - was not an "actual event" but instead a "propaganda tool that was used for political and monetary gain."
In a statement released Monday, a spokeswoman for the Rialto Unified School District said an academic team was meeting to revise the assignment.
I am so relieved that District Superintendent Mohammad Z. Islam had nothing nefarious in mind when his district approved this assignment. /s
This is chilling. To say there was nothing insidious about this assignment designed to plant seeds of doubt in the minds of children is ridiculous. I'm not suggesting Mr. Islam is solely responsible for this assignment. But after what we've seen happen in the UK, we should, at minimum, take a critical look at the possibility of it happening here.
