The United Educators of San Francisco, the union that represents teachers in the city’s public schools, released a controversial guide Wednesday to teaching public school children about Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in the recent election. The guide, called the “Lesson Plan on the November 2016 Election,” informs teachers that “a racist and sexist man has become the president of our country by pandering to a huge racist and sexist base,” and suggests they teach children the same.
During an interview with San Francisco Daily, a member of the union, who requested anonymity, explained that the reason behind such a move was “fighting injustice that is being enforced onto us the only way we knew how – by making sure the coming generation of Americans got their facts straight from the get-go.” “We thought long and hard about what to do in this situation, and finally came up with this idea, not because we want to corrupt our children’s worldview, but on the contrary – because we want them to not fall under the catastrophic mindset like the one patented by our new president,” they added.
Asked to elaborate on why the guide allows teachers to give Trump “the victory” in confederate, pro-slavery states, the source from the union replied, “it’s very simple: you can’t have the good without the bad; they define each other. Just like a day wouldn’t be a day without the night, or a yin without a yang, or, ultimately, just like Superman wouldn’t be what he is without General Zod to define his purpose, so too is Hillary Clinton’s greatness and righteousness defined by Donald Trump’s sexist, bigoted and racist characteristics. And in order to make that a credible fact, we had to give him the victory somewhere, so we figured, why not make it the inbred, hillbilly backwater states that have a history of supporting slavery and the Confederacy?”
“But doesn’t that mean you’ll have effectively made the choice of which states are ‘bad’ and which ones are ‘good’ for the children, instead of letting them decide for themselves?” the reporter asked the source. “Possibly, but you have to understand that’s a risk we had to take. Besides, at the end of the day, it’s not like we made stuff up; that’s something that’s a fact when it comes to Southern states; they indeed have in the past supported both the Confederacy and slavery as a way of life. That’s what made them ideal for representing ‘the victory’ of Donald Trump in the election,” the source revealed.
“But, I can’t shake the feeling that you’re focusing on the wrong thing here,” they added. “The point of the guide was to resist the idiotic choice our country made on November 8, and the only weapon we had left in that pre-lost battle was our influence over what our children are going to be taught. And this was our way of shielding them from what lies ahead in a Donald Trump presidency for a little while longer. Undoubtedly, they are going to have a worse time growing up with him as president than under Hillary Clinton, but it is what it is. Let’s call this our attempt of minimizing the percentage of today’s kids who’ll grow up to become serial killers and frequent mental institutions as a result of growing up in Trump’s America.”
