The leftist/democrats who loath this country with every fiber of their being have been working with their fellow travelers to demonize this country in textbooks is not so recent an event. 20 years ago in school, I had to read all sorts of stories about the Hiroshima bomb’s effects on “innocent” Japanese , but not one on the Bataan Death March, the Rape of Nanking, the Phillipine occupation , comfort women or the biological and medical experiments carried out in the Northern Chinese territories on Chinese and American prisoners.
Did you have to read about The Marshall Plan or The Berlin Airlift? Or MacCarthur in Japan helping them set up their Constitution, getting Japanese women the vote, etc? I’d bet not.
