Texas Board of Education Elides Hillary Clinton

The Texas Board of Education has voted to remove Hillary Clinton from the social studies curriculum — the former Secretary of State and the first woman candidate for president from a major political party. The Board of Education also mandates teaching that Arab intransigence in refusing to recognize Israel as the nation state of the Jewish people is responsible for Middle Eastern unrest.

Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that we are all entitled to our own opinions, but not our own facts. Apparently, if you live in Texas, that’s not the case.
