State Board of Education Candidate: Pilgrims Were Communists, and Died for it

Allow us to introduce Gail Spurlock, a Republican from Richardson seeking her party’s nom for the State Board of Education seat. She has some interesting things to say about history in this interview with the North Texas Council, a group “concerned with the direction our country is taking with regards to fiscal responsibility and the lack of constitutionality of our government laws.” For example, the war raging in the BOE isn’t one of culture. It’s about “restoring history.” Spurlock is shocked, just shocked, about everything she didn’t learn in grade-school U.S. history, like how all the pilgrims were total commies.

Yes…there is a video.  Just remember the name “Gail Spurlock” and know not to vote for her, please.

Thanks.

Sunday political shows’ guests: 70% Republican, 86% male, 92% white

Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting monitored the guests on Sunday political shows from June 2011 to February 2012. They found that the guests for one-on-one interviews were 70% Republican, 86% male and 92% white. US government sources accounted for 47% of appearances, and journalists accounted for 43%.

I’d love to see the same numbers for comparison by talk radio, that bastion of progressive thinking.
