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.
