Mr. Madrigal nor CNN was honest with Mr. Hicks about what the interview was going to consist of so he was left to look stupid as he did. His bad for not researching more and trusting CNN. Also, Mr. Madrigal made no mention of the meetings held by the school board and the mayhem that resulted each time. Nor the chaining of the students by the students to the chairs at these meeting. No mention of the honest people who have first-hand knowledge about what these classes were teaching and the hate and lies these teachers were filling these student’s heads with. This was definitely biased and typical of liberals.
Even if CNN, or anyone else for that matter, were to have been “honest” as you claim, the fact that he didn’t even know Rosa Park’s last name scares me. Also, what else did he think the interview was going to consist of, baseball, foreign affairs? If anything the fact that the interview, if it was in fact some sort of ambush, took him off guard, he probably gave us more honest answers then if he had time to prepare.
I feel that the students would have a right to be angry. I have looked at the list of the materials that have been banned and among them are speeches by Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, Howard Zinn, and even Civil Disobedience by H.D. Thoreau, which as Carol probably doesn’t know, was a work that helped inspired the likes of Dr. King as well as Gandhi. This book ban is absurd. History is filled with radical men with radical ideals. It truly feels as if Arizona only has a problem with men of this nature, if they are brown.
