A middle school teacher attempting to discuss major historical events with his class ran into some incredibly ignorant responses from the students. That he was able to stay calm is a miracle in itself as the students gushed with things like “Helen Keller was a nazi guy. He’s like a terrorist.” and “D-Day is a rapper.”
For those of us who grew up when education didn’t include “social justice,” and “intersectional feminist 1619” hogwash, such basic historical knowledge was a must. By the time I was “middle school” age, I knew about all those things. It appears that today, kids skate through life completely oblivious to what has gone on before them. Of course I didn’t have my head buried in a cell phone either- I read books, and engaged with veterans, as well as our older generations who lived through it.
Helen Keller was not a “nazi guy.” She was a woman who became deaf and mute at the age of 19 months from a high fever. She went on to become an author, lecturer, disability rights advocate, and politicial activist. No she was not a “fake,” as one of the giggling teenagers suggested. Of course, kids nowadays listen to conspiracy theories as bad as adults do.
There is a whole conspiracy theory amongst teens that Helen Keller never existed because they don't believe anyone could over come those disabilities. https://t.co/zIn9kenDRn

They weren’t “F-ing” with him, that was really their knowledge level: zero. Oh, and Helen Keller was trending on Twitter. Go figure.
When the teacher suggested the student mixed up Helen Keller with Hitler, the student replied, “Who’s Hitler?” That one she should have known because the left has screamed that Trump was like Hitler for the last 4 years.
When he asked about D-Day, one student responded that “D-Day is a rapper.’
So this is terrifying. History teacher discussing major events with Gen Z students. pic.twitter.com/dsXkn3pkc2

Some of the responses to that post ranged from priceless to scary:
“Reading the declaration of independence in my English class right now. To build context: ‘and who did we win our independence from?” Crickets… Then from the back of the room: ‘God?’” @Tedwrite
“I remember growing up lingering at the dinner table w/adults long after meal was over listening to them talk of history, politics, literature, etc. So much learning there no screen could replace. Now I see families everywhere-kids tuned out, staring at screens.” @hollyshansen
There were also the usual crop of haters on the responses. Did the teacher make fun of them as some claimed? No, but he was shocked at some of their responses, and did laugh at one point. We have all seen similar videos of adults made by “Louder with Crowder” and others when even the adults were clueless about basic knowledge.
