California recently passed a bill mandating the inclusion of historical contributions made by GLBT Americans in textbooks.
Opponents of the bill call it an attack on family. They have already rallied together to enact a statewide vote to overturn the law.
Supporters call it a display of equality. They hope this bill will ease the bullying which have led to suicides in the past.
Bob Beckel, a Fox News commentator and political analyst, supports the bill.
On Friday's edition of The Five, he explained his support:
There's no reason why they can't have a history lesson on the Stonewall demonstrations downtown here. The fact of the matter is there has been a long history of oppression against gays and they have contributed enormously to the history of this country and what's wrong with teaching it?
And that's when Andrea Tantaros piped in and said:
They're starting even younger now. They're starting even younger now to control your kids, brainwash them.
UGH! Give us a break!
Brainwashing? Sure. That's what it's allll about. It couldn't just be about easing in equality and American rights. Nooo.
LOL! These people have no idea the mirror they're looking into.
We'll give you a hint. It's vintage. Circa 1876-1965.
