Ignorance is what's being taught from elementary school on up. Along with civil disobedience.

Oh, come on. Students these days aren't TAUGHT anything -- they're simply being indoctrinated.

If the Asian gal is Hmong, she may not be exposed to WWII and the US' involvement early on.

I'm afraid to ask them about 9/11. They were toddlers when that happened.

As Rush Limbaugh said today about the “kumbaya lovefest” from the GHWB funeral eulogies and the misrepresentation of history from that time, unless the event occurred while they were alive, then it is Ancient History and is irrelevant to them. And they will be doomed to repeat it too.

You beat me to it!

I have been saying this for years.

Some time ago someone did an on campus interview, asking who the USA fought against in WW2. Several of the responders maintained that we fought against FRANCE!

There are some stupid people in that video including the guy asking the questions. He was whining about it being cold with his jacket open hood down and no cap or gloves.

Even the ignorant ones were treated with some respect, no eye rolls or laughing in their faces, good for the interviewer. I'd like to believe some were happy to be informed and not bristling at being exposed. Maybe a case where honey does work better than vinegar.

Part of the issue on display I think is that females generally aren’t as interested in war history as males are. Guys consume that stuff both for knowledge and entertainment. Granted, the younger ones probably not as much as the older ones.

As soon as the dude w/ the Carhatt beanie came on, I knew he was going to get it right.

I know, it's profiling. But sometimes, you can tell something about people by what they wear. Not always but sometimes.

Not even close, it wasn't over until Switzerland dropped the A Bomb on the Japanese in Normandy which caused the Berlin Wall to fall.
