Have you heard about this? It’s a crossword puzzle that was part of a school assignment that labeled conservatives as those who want to restrict personal freedoms. The last time I checked they weren’t the ones (at least most of them) working to strip us of our Second Amendment rights, or trying to tell us what we can eat and drink.
Eighth-graders in Wisconsin’s Union Grove school district were assigned to fill out a “Liberalism vs. Conservatism” crossword puzzle, and they learned some new and very questionable “facts.”
Students learned conservatism is “the political belief of preserving traditional moral values by restricting personal freedoms … ”
Conversely, they learned liberalism is “the political belief of equality and personal freedom for everyone, often changing the current system to increase government protection of civil liberties.
Read the whole thing, there’s much more at the link including a larger picture of the crossword in question.
