Conservatives attempt to rewrite Michigan’s social studies standards, erasing mentions of gay rights, Roe v. Wade, climate change, and the existence of racism

Remember how, last week… before the Canadians became our enemies and we began diverting American resources toward the production of North Korean propaganda films… we were talking about how, in order to undo all of the damage that’s been done to the fabric our civil society over the past several years, we’d have to invest […]
