RUSH: History Is Being Taught With ‘FEELINGS’ Instead Of ‘TRUTH’

RUSH: Here’s Ryan in Louisville.  Great to have you on the program, sir.  Hello.

CALLER:  Hello.  Good afternoon, Dr. Limbaugh.  How’s it going?

RUSH:  It’s fine and dandy here, sir.  Thank you for calling.

CALLER:  Thank you.  I’m a PhD student in American history, and I am absolutely in love with your book.  I haven’t actually had a chance to obtain my own copy yet but I’ve used them, previewed them. My oldest is seven years old, and at the time the first one came out, I was, like, “I love it, but she’s not ready for it yet,” and over the last few months, a couple things have happened, and I wanted to share them with you.  First of all, thank you for giving us tools that educators like me ask use that care more about truth than feelings.  The sad thing is that a lot of history and historical fiction is used to generator feelings and not to provide truth.

RUSH:  Boy, is that ever right.  That is such… I hope that’s one of the things you’re doing in your PhD.

CALLER:  Absolutely. 

RUSH:  Man, you have nailed it.  Like everything else, they’re substituting and writing fiction to generate feelings rather than give facts and truth.  That just nails what’s happening to education.
