Mike Huckabee Teaches Your Kid About 9/11, Makes Money

History is wrong, says Mike Huckabee, so let him correct it for you.

Posted By on Thu, Aug 4, 2011 at 6:20 PM

Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor turned presidential candidate turned Fox News host turned, um, history teacher, has rolled out a series of videos to teach kids the story of our great nation.

Aimed at correcting what Huckabee and his friends see as a liberal bent to education, the video series includes one installment about the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The videos start at $9.95, a portion of which goes to a fund for victims of the attacks, but the rest goes into the pockets of the for-profit Learn Our History company.

The videos and the profiteering from them have drawn plenty of criticism from some who are accusing Huckabee of taking advantage of a horrific event. One of the critics is retired New York City fire chief Jim Riches, whose own son, also a firefighter, was killed in the 9/11 attacks.

Also in the series, so far, is a video about the "Reagan revolution" which, as the preview below depicts, all but saved our country from becoming a real-life version of Mad Max.
