New rule: If you donโ€™t know the difference between Frederick Douglass and Stephen Douglas, you donโ€™t get to tell anyone else what to teach.

VA Del. @WrenWilliamsVA, dropped House Bill 781, which purports to regulate the HS social studies curriculum. The Lincoln-Douglass debates were between Abraham Lincoln and then Sen. Steven Douglas. Frederick Douglass was not involved. Bill: @jonfranks's photo on Frederick Douglass

One of the great moments of U.S. history: When Frederick Douglass debated Abraham Lincoln. An ignorant alternative fact. Just a hint of what we can expect with Virginia under new management.

Is this real? Are we actually living in a TL where the legislature of Virginia is proposing to reform education by teaching its students that the Lincoln-Douglas debates featured Abraham Lincoln and Frederick Douglass? @ProfMMurray's photo on Frederick Douglass

In the meantime, I have so many questions. Do the people behind this bill know *anything* about the LD debates? Do they actually think Frederick Douglass was promoting popular sovereignty as a way to preserve slavery? And accusing Lincoln of the crime of abolitionism?

The Hitchhikerโ€™s Guide to the Galaxy is actually a transcript of an argument between John Adams and Frederick Douglass

Hey Virginia lawmakers, the Lincoln-Douglas debates did not involve Frederick Douglass

Good morning to @WrenWilliamsVA. Good night and farewell to his bill confusing Frederick Douglass with Stephen A. Douglas.

The Lincoln-Douglas debates did not involve Frederick Douglass. Never forget that the people who want to pass anti-CRT legislation on the state level don't even know the history they're trying to suppress.

Dear Mainstream Education, Black students in the Bronx can relate to Shakespeare and white students in rural America can relate to Frederick Douglass. These giants tap into timeless universal realities about what it means to be human.

@KevinMKruse I knew Frederick Douglass was getting recognized more and more but now heโ€™s debating the president! Congrats, Fred.

Hereโ€™s an actual #GOP bill in the #Virginia legislature dictating what should be and should not be taught in schools. Remind me, I forget, did Lincoln debate Frederick Douglass before or after he debated Senator Stephen Douglas? They know nothing. #resist #mepolitics #VoteBlue

Activist and author Frederick Douglass was born #OTD in 1817. After teaching himself to read, he escaped bondage and became renowned for his oratory and incisive antislavery writings. His work served as an inspiration to the civil rights movement of the 1960s and beyond. @NAACP_LDF's photo on Frederick Douglass

Virginia's GOP anti-CRT bill cites the Lincoln-Douglas debates which the GOP believes were between Abraham Lincoln & Frederick Douglass. Once again MAGA proves just how important history is & how they've never actually read a book. But yea, CRT is the problem...๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ #DemVoice1

Abraham Lincoln would have never let the RNC tell him he couldn't debate Frederick Douglass

"Steven Douglas" is a typo. "Frederick Douglass" is having no idea what you're talking about.

Monday is MLK Day. Next month is Black History Month which started as Frederick Douglass Day. Yet, at a time when we celebrate the achievements of these giants of civil rights, Republicans & 2 Democrats are working to reverse all that has been gained. They need to be called out.

Why would they take a Frederick Douglass statue down? This is why:

My latest @townhallcom is SCOOP on Frederick Douglass trend/exclusive from @WrenWilliamsVA. The error on inserting Douglass when Stephen Douglas was accurate was done by Leg. Services. Around time piece went up, I learned of statement from Leg. Services.

NEW: The Division of Legislative Services, a nonpartisan agency that helps lawmakers, has claimed responsibility, saying @WrenWilliamsVA gave them a "historically accurate" draft and it unintentionally inserted the Frederick Douglass error. Story updated.

Liberty is meaningless where the right to utter one's thoughts and opinions has ceased to exist. That, of all rights, is the dread of tyrants. It is the right which they first of all strike down. Frederick Douglass

@JeremyBWhite Good question. Why isn't Frederick Douglass on currency? Why isn't Booker T. Washington on currency?
