Patriotism, Liberal Style

I linked to this during my daily read of Best of the Web Today.

This is insane, how far are these people going to go in their efforts to rewrite American History? These Berkeley liberals are trying to have Thomas Jefferson Elementary School renamed because Jefferson owned slaves. 

How far does this mean the libs will go?

Maybe they'll sue to have Jefferson's very existence stricken from our children's history books. Perhaps they'll push to change the causes for the South's secession that brought about the Civil War. And why stop there? For that matter, why bother to even mention the War Between The States in children's history books, why not rewrite the entire American saga from the Mayflower through, say, the Eisenhower Administration? That way they could erase inconvenient holidays like Thanksgiving, that commemmorates the pilgrims' giving of thanks to God, and any other aspects of U.S. history and culture they find embarrassing.

But then, what can we expect from those fine, patriotic folks in Berkeley, the same "Americans" whose verbal reaction to the horrors of 11 September 2001 was that The United States had deserved it
