History Class 101

It was the first day of a school in USA and a new Indian
student named Chandrasekhar Subramanian entered the fourth grade. The
teacher said,"

Let's begin by reviewing some American History. Who Said
'Give me Liberty , or give me Death'?"

She saw a sea of blank faces,
except for Chandrasekhar, who had his hand up:

'Patrick Henry, 1775' he said.

'Very good!'

Who said 'Government of the
People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the
Earth?'

Again, no response except from Chandrasekhar.
'Abraham Lincoln,

1863' said Chandrasekhar.

The teacher snapped at the class, 'Class,
you should be ashamed. Chandrasekhar, who is new to our
country, knows more about its history than you do.'

She heard a loud whisper:
'Fuck the Indians'

''Who said that?" she demanded.

Chandrasekhar put his hand up. 'General Custer,
1862.'

At that point, a student in the back said, 'I'm
going to puke.'

The teacher glares around and asks
'All right! Now, who said that?'

Again, Chandrasekhar says, 'George Bush to the
Japanese Prime Minister, 1991.'

Now furious, another student yells, 'Oh yeah? Suck
this!'

Chandrasekhar jumps out of his chair waving his hand and
shouts to the teacher , 'Bill Clinton, to Monica Lewinsky,
1997!'

Now with almost mob hysteria someone
said 'You little shit. If you say anything else,
I'll kill you.'

Chandrasekhar frantically yells at the top of his voice,
'Michael Jackson to the child witnesses testifying against him- 2004.'

The teacher fainted. And as the class gathered around the
teacher on the floor, someone said, 'Oh shit, we're
screwed!'

And Chandrasekhar said quietly, Stephen Harper to the
Conservative Caucus, December, 2008"
