Benevolent Assimilation?

Posted on

“Kill Everyone Over Ten” –General Jacob H. Smith–

The cartoon above was published in the New York Journal on 5 May 1902. It depicted the massacre of the people of Balañguiga, Sámar Oriental (Eastern Sámar). Children over ten years old were not spared. And this horrendous fact of Philippine history is rarely taught in school — if it is even taught at all.

Benevolent assimilation. My @$$!!!
