Today’s Video: Forgetting Romero

Earlier today we highlighted the life of the late Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero including his work against government oppression and how his countrymen admire him today. “The Daily Show” (TDS) last night also looked at Romero but under the guise of a story we mentioned last Friday: the controversial curriculum changes in Texas. “That is how Oscar Romero got disappeared by rightwingers for the second time” concluded TDS host Jon Stewart at the end of the report.

Fast forward to the 2:45 mark to view how such a vital person in Latin American history was removed from future Texan textbooks:
