    Get yourself help first. And you have no right to try to force your views or values on kids that aren't yours. You're supposed to teach them, not brainwash them into your twisted way of thinking. Who in gods name do you think you are?

    I'm not gonna marry someone unless I love them, I'm not discriminating, you can do whatever, doesn't mean I have to agree or accept it.

    Sure but don't claim you had freedom when people were treated by the State differently depending who they love and wanted to share their life with. Also accepting or not, doesn't mean you have the right to interfere with their lives.

    I just said I don't care what you do as long as you don't force me to accept it or agree with you.

    I am not brainwashing them. I am showing them footage/accounts of historical events and leaving them to come to their own conclusions. That is the function of a teacher. It is my hope that they look at the overwhelming evidence for and the horror of the Holocaust and come to the conclusion that it occurred and was bad, but I have to hope they can make that leap. It is my hope that presenting accounts of those living under cruel regimes and how those regimes came about will inform them on how to spot the next one on the horizon, and why they are bad, but I cannot make the decision for them.

    I live in hope that people, properly informed, come to informed conclusions. That they can be good.

    Lol. That is not the function of a teacher. That's the function of a documentary, or by extension, a media player.

    The job of a "teacher" is spelled out by the curriculum and rules established by the nation and its subsidiaries (localized governments). But a teacher is someone who "facilitates education" and often acts as a guide in their pupil's pursuits.

    A rock can be a teacher for disciples of the stoic.

    Since you need it spelled out for you, it's the function of a history teacher to inform the student about history. My own opinions and conclusions regarding what is good and what is not must stay out of it as much as possible, since otherwise I can get in trouble for showing a political bias. I have seen a million parents who insist that my classes in which I disseminate data on historical events I am required to teach show my own political biases. Thus, my hope, being that the conservatives usually far outweigh the liberals, when their students come home and challenge their parents' views because Mr. Meteos did a class on lynchings.

    What exactly do you think you corrected me on? I pointed out that you oversimplified the role of a teacher. Have some self-respect.

    I pray for your students for having such an ignorant teacher that is even unable to have a decent discussion with facts and data (for which you have provided ZERO).
    Now I'd like to know what sort of psychodelic substance you have to ingest in order to not be able to see "socialism" in "national-socialism".

    Maybe you should eat less mcdonalds and more healthy food, it's starting to take a toll on your ability to distinguish etymology from politics.

    PS: are you ever going to discuss the data I've provided or will you continue to resort to fallacies about fries and the french? Now I'm curious as to where you got your history degree, your way of discussing history details is kindergarden level at most.

    That seems kinda passive aggressive.

    It's none of my business who you rub your genitals against, it should be none of the states business either (as long as they are old enough). And god (who probably doesn't exist either) would not have invented homosexuality if he didn't think it was a good idea.

    From the posts I've seen of you, that's exactly what you're NOT doing. You're supposed to teach them about the past, but you also want them to think like you, in a very twisted and evil way. Teach them about events in history without giving your opinion on how they should think for the future. Not saying I want the mistakes from the past to be repeated, but in the way I feel like you "teach" it'll happen.

    Nope.

    Well, if that's your opinion on it, then you do you.

    I wish it was just a joke. More likely there's a lot of criminal activity going on there with votes being changed and ballots being thrown out. Not that they're going to change the officially certified numbers anyway, but they are gonna need to throw a bunch more MAGAts in jail.

    So some people think that's exactly what happened last fall, and you think that's what's happening now.

    But they're crazy & dangerous.
