Parker: Rebellion for Tea but not for thee

Mike Littwin’s column “Don’t Know Much About History” is a perfect example of how the Tea Party 3 of the Jeffco School Board are out of touch with reality. They want to ban the teaching of any type of subversive civil discourse events that “encourage or condone civil disorder, social strife or disregard of the law.” They wanted “good citizens, not rebels.” Of course this would eliminate any discussion of the Revolutionary War, Civil War, Civil Rights etc. Here is the irony of all this, the Tea Party are the ones who do not trust government and want the citizens to be armed so they can fight the government if they try and take away their rights. Am I the only one who finds this position totally ironic?
