History teacher who rewrites History!
I got bumped up from a regular American History class today into an AP American History class. I am fairly educated when it comes to this topic, and cocky, so I immediatley began sparring with the teacher, as I always do with each teacher on the first day of school. For the most part, the teachers usually enjoy it, and hold me in a higher light for getting involved.
Well, somehow he began talking about how the US is a leader in promoting democracy, and that is why they have gotten involved in Hati, and are involved in Iraq's governmental process.
I told him that I I feel the United States acts soley in its own interest, and that it has on numerous occasions installed and supported non democratic governments - Including Saddam Hussien and the Bathe Party.
This infuriated him, his forehead turned red and I knew then that I was in trouble. He went off on me as if he had walked in on me bonking his daughter.
In a nutshell he said that I was trying to undermine his authority, and manipulate liberal propaganda to furthor along the illusion that America is an evil empire.
I said nothing...Gonna be a fun 9 weeks....
