Texas Lawmakers Blast ‘Anti-American’,
‘Anti-Christian’ Curriculum

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/6/2013 1:56:14 PM

Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum surfaced that promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism. (Snip) School children were exposed to lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism. They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist countries. And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran. “They are indoctrinating our children to hate America,” said Janice VanCleave, of Texas Education Patriots.

Comments:
Dan Patrick a Republican Texas lawmaker was just on Fox and said that the teachers had to sign a contract saying they were subject to criminal penalties if they exposed certain parts of this program. There was a lesson that required students to design a socialist or communist flag?? Texas is changing it, what about all the other states where you have to believe this happening? Every day we see something more breathtaking than the last.

God Bless Texas! These "educators" have their heads up their you-know-wheres. And, never underestimate the power of good parenting to put the brakes on these morons.

Way past time to defund, eliminate, get rid of, the Dept of Education. Long long long past. When the person running the department thinks that socialism/communism is the way to go and encouraged a 15 year old boy to let his homosexual feeling flow and have a "relationship" with a 45 to 50 year old man and that it is healthy and natural? Um no...defund, eliminate and kiss it good bye and let the states have it back and local control. So our children won´t be spoon fed propaganda and brainwashed into the utopia progressive b/s.

Not to defend any of this (I think what this organisation is doing is presenting a relativistic view of history which I completely reject), but I do know that Islam teaches from the old testimaent and that Allah is thier designation for what we would call God. Differences in how God is percveived by the teachings of the Christian, Jewish, and Islamic faiths is something I don´t know though. Someone here probably knows.

And John McCain stood in the well of the Senate and railed at Michelle Bachman and Louis Gohmert of Texas for suggesting that our government is infested with Islamists. Our Senators Cornyn and Hutchison stood by and said nothing of course.

Perhaps the good people of Texas and their Governor should close down the schools for disinfestation ,and reopen when a proper non revisionist curriculum is establshed.

You know when the teachers using this curriculum are forced to sign a form saying they won´t reveal any lesson plans, that indoctrination is the goal.

Islam doesn´t teach from the Old Testament although some passages have been plagiarized, they use the koran and their "god" allah is one supposedly picked by mohammad which was a moon god represented by a black rock, from among the many they use to worship when they were polytheistic. satan by any other name is still lucifer and uses the same tricks to condem us.
the public school idiots rewriting history are all following the communist plan they learned in college to subvert our history and or customs and unfortunately most of the sheeple are just following right into lock step with them.

Not all Texas teachers should be lumped in with the libtards--

Many are old-school and strongly hold to traditional values as those in academia seek to cut off debate and promote wacko programs.

The State Board of Education is heavily dominated by conservative republicans who may not be aware of this blatant atrocity.

#9 Islam does indeed teach from the Old Testement. I lived in Saudi Arabia for years and saw the TV shows explaining the Old Testament. I also have friends that are muslims and we have talked extensively about this. These friends are the true peaceful adherents of Islam, not the idiots we read about on a daily basis.

Liberalism is alive and well in every school district - Texas too. It varies from a little to a lot but all children are being affected if they go to these government schools. It is shocking that parents are being lured into thinking Islam has ANY place in any form in an AMERICAN school.

#11 did they also teach you about taqqiyah? I bet you they didnt. Peaceful my foot. If by peace they mean not standing up to the terrorists and violent jihadists and silently turning their backs on how Islam treats infidels, then maybe. But they are complicit in Islam´s perversion of religion. They are the Borg of the religious world. They are not interested in coexistence. They will edge the rest of us out by mere "peace."

And they may "borrow" from the "Old Testament" but it is only so they can lay claim to prophets and history that was never theirs in the first place. None of what their Koran teaches falls in line with the 10 commandments, I guarantee you. I bet they also told you that Allah was not the same God as the God of the Jewish and Christian peoples.

Yes, you had better ask them about taqqiyah before you listen to anything else they say and ask yourself: what other religion advocates lying in order to gain converts? I bet you there is only one who does that.

The reason the entire country needs to watch this closely is that Texas and California have tremendous influence on textbooks that are used throughout the country because they, from what I understand, have statewide curricula.

#11 There is only one Koran. This is not like Catholic lite and Episcopalians.

It seems we are on a slippery slope and The Separation of Church and State means noting when it comes to Islam.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

On April 7 a short video of the 60-year-old priest, from Oldcastle, County Meath, singing at a recent wedding ceremony went live. In just 11 days the touching video has racked up close to 30 million hits on YouTube and his fame now reaches to every corner of the earth.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
