Nationally syndicated radio host Rush Limbaugh declared that "multicultural curricula" teach that "this really would be a great country if white Europeans had just stayed where they were." Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, has described multicultural education as an "important requirement" for America's children.
From the May 10 edition of The Rush Limbaugh Show:
LIMBAUGH: Multicultural curricula, multicultural training, [is] understanding that you're no better than anybody else and understanding the Indians got screwed, that it's really their country. Understanding that white Europeans brought to this country syphilis and other disease, environmentalism, sexism, racism and homophobia. If it weren't for all of that, this really would be a great country if white Europeans had just stayed where they were.
