Great comment about the entry below
'But according to the history books in use today in public schools six million Jews (and a handful of gays) were the only people to be persecuted in the 20th century....'

Right. Everything I know I learnt from the government schools and TV... like how the Civil War was a righteous cause to free blacks (it wasn’t), how Roosevelt fought World War II ’cos he cared about the Jews (he didn’t), how the US got into the war because of ‘those sneaky Japs’ (codswallop), how the US Navy singlehandedly won the war in the Pacific - the Army had nothing to do with it except maybe for Douglas MacArthur, and on the flip side the US Army singlehandedly won the war in Europe (don't you watch ‘Hogan’s Heroes’?) - the US Navy, the Russians and the British had nothing to do with it except maybe Dickie Dawson as Bob Crane’s sidekick.
