Rep. Ryan, your high school called. They'd like their diploma back:
“Sewing class envy and social unrest is not what we do in America"
Oh really? So that whole "Revolution" was just...what? Or the Civil War? The Anti-Rent War? The Battle of Athens? Does the name Nat Turner ring a bell, Congressman? Daniel Shays, perhaps?
What about Wounded Knee? That happened in your lifetime. For God's sake, who can forget the Whiskey Rebellion? What politician in his right mind who even toys with the idea of leading this nation could ignore such signal events in the history of the nation?
Who ignores Santayana at his own peril?
Apparently, this is not the first time Ryan has exposed his underappreciation of the breadth of American history...
