Huckabee’s new Learn Our History videos for children — facts or propaganda?

Filed under: World War II — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 7:53 am

I usually watch Mike Huckabee’s TV show on Saturday nights.  Last Saturday, he was promoting his new Learn Our History series of videos for American school children, aged 7 and up.  He pointed out that these videos are needed because our students are not learning history in school; Huckabee claims that most high school seniors don’t know who was the first president of the United States.  The videos are intended for parents who want to supplement what their children learn in school.

One of his new videos was played on his TV show.  In this video, which is in the form of a cartoon, we see Hitler shaking hands with a man dressed in a British uniform, as the narrator says something about “Why is Hitler shaking hands with someone from another country when he hated everyone who was not German?”  So, right away, we are given a heads up that this lesson will be a biased view of history.  From this video, the little kids will learn a new word, which is pronounced very slowly: APPEASEMENT.  What they won’t learn is the true facts surrounding this event and the years of history leading up to the meeting.  You can read about some of this history on my web site here.

The information in this particular video is over-simplified and it does not adequately explain the Munich Conference.  I don’t think that 7-year-old children should be introduced to controversial events in history with a biased presentation in cartoon form.

Here is a preview of another video in the Learn Our History series:

  1. I will say I have never sene a known lib eral attempt to rewrite history. It seems to me the republicans engage in this sort of thing often. Voter obstruction seems to be the ideal at the time. Look at the law in FLorida with early voting and and voter registration requirements

  2. This is unbelievably stupid. As you say, it is not history, but extreme partisan brainwashing. What garbage to give to kids as “learning.” I am shocked, even for someone like Mike Huckabee. I wouldn’t have thought it.

    It’s good that you’re showing this to us, further glory, but I can’t understand that you “usually watch Mike Huckabee’s TV show on Saturday night.” This guy is a moron, and very harmful to boot. Why do you watch him … and how do you stand to watch him? Are you a double or split personality? Mike Huckabee and Glenn Beck!!! You’d be better off watching Lawrence Welk.

    • Well Gov. Huckabee’s point was just made by your ignorance and inability to communicate with factual data to back up your statements with respect. Your name calling is becoming status for the group you associate with and obviously you need to watch these cartoons as you are really not ready for primetime, adult, intelligent communication. I bet your a regular watcher of MSNBC!

      • MSNBC is biased on the side of left-wingers. Correct me if I’m wrong, but my impression is that Skeptic is a right wing conservative person. As for me, I never watch MSNBC which in my opinion is far too biased.

        • I hope you also feel the same about Fox news which to me is even more extreme to the right. Thee are not mnay media outlets that is objective and I hardly believe mIke Hucabee offers that as well.
