Pro-Islamic Brainwashing in Texas Public Schools

By taking control of public education, liberals have been able to spread the rot that is destroying our country even into small towns in Texas:

An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists — but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.

Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide — instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”

John Valastro, the superintendent of the Lumberton Independent School District, told Fox News that the teacher did absolutely nothing wrong. …

Valastro said the teacher involved is a 32-year veteran who was simply following state teaching guidelines.

April LeBlanc, whose 15-year-old daughter Madelyn was subjected to the brainwashing, gasped,

“This teacher taught her that a freedom fighter is when they give their life for the Holy War — and that they’re going to go to heaven,” she told Fox News. “They were saturating these kids in Islam and my daughter is an American Christian child.”

Don’t blame the teacher. She was just following orders, as people do in countries run by oligarchical collectivists. As Madelyn LeBlanc reports,

“I do have a lot of sympathy for her. At the very beginning she said she didn’t want to teach it but it was in the curriculum.” …

During a lesson on Judaism, LeBlanc said the teacher told the class, “Students, I’m supposed to be politically correct and tell you that the Holocaust was not Genocide. It was an ethnic cleansing.”

As with all things progressive, the political correctness envelope just keeps getting pushed. Anyone depraved enough to imagine what will be regarded as politically correct five years from now is a fit candidate for an exorcism.

To his immense credit, one young man objected to the characterization of the mass murdering terrorists of 9/11 as “freedom fighters.”

Madelyn said the teacher didn’t know how to respond.

“She said it was something we have to learn for the end of the year testing,” she said. “I’m sure it was very difficult for her to do.”

Madelyn said the lesson about freedom fighters made her feel “terrible.”

“That made it sound like what they were doing was okay,” she said.

This is all fine according to Superintendent Valastro.

“The whole idea behind this particular lesson — do you call yourself a freedom fighter or Islamic jihadist — or whatever it is you want to be called — you’ve got to put things in perspective,” the superintendent said.

For more “perspective,” Valastro points to the Boston Tea Party, a seminal event in our nation’s history:

“We were revolutionaries, but on the British side of the ocean we were destroying their content and they saw it as a terrorist attack.”

When liberals elected and then reelected Barack Hussein Obama — with his pro-Islamic, anti-American background and attitudes — they voted for a country where this is what is taught in public schools. If we ever begin to find it tolerable, they will have defeated us.

    Funny, but I don’t recall any stories about young women dressing up in kimonos after Pearl Harbor was attacked.
    Now, I didn’t live through that period but I’ve never heard of anyone doing that.

    Isn’t great that the public education system that we pay for, stinks so bad that we now offer homage to the murderous bastards that attacked this country on 9/11/01, causing nearly 3,000 people to die.

    Worst of all, this happened in Texas. I would expect this in the People’s Republic of Massachusetts, the center of the moonbat universe, but Texas? How disturbing that is.

    If I saw one of my daughters wearing one because a teacher demanded it, you’d lose me for a few weeks because of a prison stay and a teacher’s teeth all over the floor.

    Liberals. If they can’t kill the children, they’ll indoctrinate them. There is not a single redeeming quality in liberalism.

    Heaven?
    HOLY War??????

    Where are the Liberals and the ACLU suing this entire school system and throwing the leaders in jail over the ‘separation of church and state’?
    Where is the Left demanding equal time for other religions?

    WHERE!!!!!!!!

  • oldguy

    The true worry about this school system is if the school board is not removed in the next election. Will someone keep track of this in this district?

  • GoinSane

    But “cleansing” is good, right?

    And we are not across the ocean, so they are effing terrorists!

    Apparently, it’s not just the Muslims our children are being taught to “honor”. Now, the communists running the schools down in Mexas are “demanding” our children pledge their honor to, Mexico!

    Changing the language is the first step in changing the perception. Calling the holocaust ethnic cleansing makes it sound like kinda a good thing, a necessary step for the greater good.

    Oh wait…wasn’t that Hitler’s excuse?

  • VoR

    Yep. Fear any thinking at all! Fear is, after all, what you do best.

    Come on Stan – even you should be able to follow the difference here. They weren’t teaching about Islam as a religion (or pretending that somehow Islam belongs in a science class), they were teaching about the concept of perspective. That is all. See how that makes perfect sense in context? We abhor the behavior of the terrorism-types, but to them they are not terrorists. From their ‘perspective’ (see how once again we are learning about how perspective works?) they are the good guys. Crazy, sure, but again we are not weighing the content, merely the perspective.

    If your “faith” – or that of your poor brainwashed offspring – is so fragile that a single unit in a single class teaching the concept of ‘perspective’ is enough to shatter it… what does that say about your worldview?

    Yeah. Just sayin’.

  • Outraged Observer

    “Freedom” fighters? Seriously?

    What were the 9/11 terrorists fighting for “freedom” from? Most of the 9/11 hijackers were Saudi Arabians. Were they fighting to be “freed” from all the money the U.S. has paid Saudi Arabia for its oil? Or to be “freed” from the student visas and educational opportunities that the U.S. so generously provided them?

    The 9/11 criminals were not “freedom fighters” by any stretch of the imagination. They already had freedom, and plenty of it. They had the freedom to come and go in the United States, to practice their religion here, to attend schools here, to take flight training here, to get drivers’ licenses here, to basically do whatever they wanted here.

    It wasn’t “freedom” those terrorists sought when they deliberately murdered thousands of innocent and unarmed American civilians on 9/11. The terrorists were deluded and clueless fools who allowed themselves to be used by people of unspeakable evil, people who want to control the world and understand that before they can do that, they must first destroy America.

    What’s sad is that so many American “teachers” are so damn eager and willing to help them do it.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    In this teachers defense, this is an Advanced Placement course for college.
    Sadly, this means this class curriculum has been approved by the college board, ostensibly made up of professors including sufficient content for college credits.
    She must teach for what is included in the final exam.
    It all boils down to this is being taught in universities.

  • Jay B.

    Just for the record.. you can’t equate revolutionary troops to muslim terrorists. For once, the minutemen didn’t make their wife and children stand as shields in front of them. They marched into battle with a flag raised instead of using a red cross to shield themselves. They attacked military targets, not gatherings of civilians.

    Muslims are a cancer, not a solution.

  • Tim from TK

    VoR, (AKA Nom du Jour), to no one’s surprise again misses a point entirely.

    Stan’s point was not about faith, it is about the hypocrisy of your ilk.

    Do, however, expound on how re-labeling the Holocaust teaches “perspective”, and why a geography class is even teaching “perspective” or, for that matter, even dragging religion into thing other than to describe demographic percentages in a given country.

  • Ghost of FA Hayek

    VoR has just provided for us a PERFECT example of the dangers of moral relativism.
    See, once we understand the PERSPECTIVE of terrorists, we find that war is no longer the only solution. That a more righteous path can be found in the other option provided to us by our enemy, submission to Islam.
    But the problem is that this is where all thought ends for the leftists which VoR ostensibly supports.
    What would “peace” look like in a world ruled solely by Sharia law ?

    VoR
    Te “prospective” of the thief is to steal more.
    The “prospective” of the rapist is to commit rape.
    The “prospective” of the murderer….. well, what does it matter when you’re dead.

    And the “prospective” of the terrorist is your submission to Islam.
    It is not on us in the west to understand anything outside terrorism must be defeated, lest we die.

  • JDavid

    Articles like this one, every day, everywhere I look, is why my comment above under “Separated At Birth?”.

  • StanInTexas

    VoR, you think you can lecture me about PERSPECTIVE?

    They talked about the RELIGIOUS beliefs of Islam? HOLY way, going to HEAVEN!!!! Do you think there would EVER be a lesson taught that the Crusaders were freedom fighters who were going to heaven?

    Your idea of perspective is like saying a rapist was only interested a little companionship… from his point of view.

    “From their ‘perspective’ (see how once again we are learning about how perspective works?) they are the good guys.”

    Yea, we all “see how it works,” troll. Funny thing the liberals “perspective” on Islamic savages never concerns teaching the class the Islamic “perspective” on homosexuality, namely, that it is an abominable crime that deserves the death penalty, and their perspective on women and children as property, to be treated as such and if one wishes, have multiple wives, cut off criminals hands for stealing, and their perspective on Jews.

    The problem with the way collectivists Marxists who comprise the College Board teach on their “perspective” is that Islamic terrorists are the guys in the white hats vs. Americans are bad. Moral relativism, pure and simple, for their secular humanist perspective. Freedom fighters my ass, these yellow-bellied arab sons-of-bitches are cold bloodthirsty cowards who, despite their professed piety to Allah, went to titty joints and blew it out before the performed their cowardly acts killing thousands. They will burns in the fires of hell, along with the apologetics for them and their “perspective”.

  • Flu-Bird

    And not a thing from the leftists ACLU or SPLC typical two faced commie scumballs

  • Tchhht!!!

    Perspective my a$$. These militant jihadists are fighting to force the entire world under the opressive yoke of islam. That’s not freedom, it is slavery.

  • Mr Evilwrench

    If I had a daughter in that class and heard she was to wear a burqa, I’d study the school dress code, dress her to the limit of it, paint her up like a jezebel and have her declare herself a “freedom fighter”.

    Indeed, perspective is important, but if you’re delusional about the other guy’s perspective, it’s even more dangerous than failing to consider it at all. The jihadis don’t consider themselves freedom fighters as such; they’re soldiers in a war against us. They wouldn’t use the word “terrorist”, but when they attack us, they know that a good bit of the effectiveness of their weapons is the terror they inspire.

    By trying to rationalize them as just a bunch of misunderstood guys, you misunderstand them at your peril. And mine, too, which I resent.

  • Dennis Carr

    Rarely to I consider murder a solution! But I have so few options for any group that acts as NAZI! We failed to stop them a long time ago..

  • A. Levy

    Sadly, these are the kinds of things that happen when a people lose their will to fight even for the things they claim to strongly believe in, such as their children, their country, and their religious beliefs. It is a clear sign of a nation in decay. And, as we all know, decay, when allowed to continue without any serious attempt to stop it, will eventually become irreversible. Truly sad.

    This fits in with the demonRAT strategy to take over Texas for their party. I heard they are working on a strategy to do this and this curriculum fits right in.

    Madelyn said the lesson about freedom fighters made her feel “terrible.”

    “That made it sound like what they were doing was okay,” she said.

    ________________________________

    So the student named Madelyn, who actually took the class, was lying, eh VoR? Because the teacher making it sound like what the “freedom fighters” were doing “was okay” is certainly not a lesson in “merely the perspective” of the 9/11 terrorists. It is a lesson in normative moral relativism, and it is outrageous that it is happening in a U.S. classroom.

    Again, the 9/11 terrorists were not fighting for “freedom.” They were committing acts of brutal terror against unarmed civilians in an effort to enslave the non-Muslim world in a worldwide caliphate that imposes the terrorists’ sick and twisted version of Islam on non-believers. That is the “content” of the terrorists’ “perspective” that should have been, but was not, discussed in the classroom.

    Even you, VoR, should be able to understand that.

  • GoinSane

    The perspective of the freedom fighter is to throw off the yoke of tyranny and replace it with freedom.

    The perspective of the muslim terrorist is to throw off the blessing of freedom and replace it with an islamic tyranny.

    The perspective of an observer, with more than two brain cells to rub together, is that they are not the same at all – from which ever side you are looking at them.

    Absolutely CORRECT. They even say so themselves:

    “Radical Muslims are the best Muslims according to Quran and to the tradition. So I said to myself like many other students, if we are Muslim, we have to be radical Muslim. The best way to please God for the radical Muslim is to, you know, cache the government/governing of the country, to rule the country, to reject all the non-Islamic forces or nominal Islamic forces. Because Islam is a political religion. The ultimate goal is to capture the country, to capture the world, to rule the world, to rule the country. So that’s why we were thinking we were pleasing Allah, and doing everything for his cause.”

    I’m wondering about the teacher’s view on female circumcision? Surely there must be merit in that practice.

    How about honor killing? Yes, indeed; let’s look at it from the father’s point of view. I’m sure he feels fully justified in killing his daughter. Maybe she wasn’t all that morally upstanding.

  • Sam Adams

    Of course the answer is painfully obvious.

    GET YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF PUBLIC SCHOOL

    Government run schools are indoctrination centers, with some math thrown into the mix. Kids learn to worship Mother Earth. They are taught incorrect economic theory. They are not taught about the virtues of economic freedom. And mentioning any other religion but Islam will get you in a lot of trouble.

    Get your kids out!!!

    I did not live through World War II, but I can only imagine if we had English translations of Goebbels point of views taught in our schools.

    We are losing the war on so many fronts right now. Our Islamic enemies are becoming much stronger and numerous. We needed Iraq and Afghanistan. Now they are spreading at a much increased rate throughout the world, not just Middle East.

    The REAL war has yet to begin. 9/11 was a mistake. They hit us too soon. I suspect that they did not learn and will do so next time, but it is going to become open warfare sooner or later. Better it sooner, but President Obama will not be the one. And his reaction, (like Benghazi) will be limited, if any at all.
