SBOE holds historical massacre

Fee-fi-fo-fum, I smell the blood of a Mexican.

Chair of the Texas State Board of Education Gail Lowe and her supporters should be arrested and charged with murder for attempting to slash immigrant rights activist Cesar Chavez, as well as other commendable Latino figures, from American textbooks.

Take heed, Texas, because you have woken a sleeping giant.

At a time when Latin Americans should be celebrating the eve of reaching a majority status in the United States, come May, when the SBOE will make its final decision on the matter, Latinos will undoubtedly take to the streets.

Not barefoot with pitchforks as the ignorant aliens Lowe and her Republican supporters regard the 46 million members of the population, but as civilized, law-abiding, tax-paying citizens who are tired of hearing “speak English, or bust.”

 “They can just pretend this is a white American and Hispanics don’t exist,” Mary Helen Berlanga (D), SBOE member, told the NY Times after walking out from a meeting which led to a heated discussion.

“They are rewriting history, not only of Texas but of the United States and the world.”

The world Berlanga refers to is not the one of “balance,” as co-created by Lowe and Dr. Don McLeroy (R), SBOE member and fervent supporter of the motion to exclude such free thinkers as Chavez, Thurgood Marshall, and even Thomas Jefferson from classrooms.

“Academia is skewed too far to the left,” McLeroy told the NY Times.

What exactly is too far to the left?

Fair?  Equal?  Self-governing?  Patriotic?  Democratic?  No pun intended.

Lowe and company should be stripped of their duties and incarcerated where their homicidal tendencies won’t get the best of the American population, dead or alive.

Better yet, ship them off to Nuremburg where they can be tried for crimes against humanity.

SBOE Republicans are responsible for the American holocaust of the 21st century:

Their actions are meant to eradicate all memory of a people who Americans cannot and should not deny ties to.

The question now is not “Is this wrong?,” but rather, “What are we, as Americans, as one great people, going to do about it?”

No word yet has been posted on Twitter, Facebook, or elsewhere as to how Chavez supporters plan to assemble.

Move over, May Day.  This melee will be one for the books, literally.
