Agit-Prop Masquerading as History; email to Mitch Daniels

• August 2, 2013 • Uncategorized

Dear Governor Daniels,

I support enthusiastically and unreservedly your condemnation of Howard Zinn’s disgraceful piece of agit-prop that too many academics consider a legitimate history of the United States.

As you have stated clearly and eloquently, academic freedom is not license for professors to indoctrinate their students instead of teaching them, and it certainly isn’t violated by an entirely understandable concern that K-12 students not be fed a farrago of lies and distortions intended to generate the ridiculous conclusion that America’s history is an unbroken tale of imperialism, racism, sexism, and homophobia..

The worthies at the American Historical聽Association and the Purdue professors who obviously don’t know the difference between education and indoctrination should be embarrassed by the nonsense they have written about your emails.

Don’t let the bad guys get you down. There are many like me in academia — more than you might imagine — who are rooting you on.

With best wishes,

Jay Bergman
