A high school class in Lumberton Texas was given a world geography lesson on Islam. Girls were encouraged to wear burqas and students were told to refer to terrorists as freedom fighters.
The school is standing by the lesson despite parental complaints.
The students were told that Egypt’s problems were brought about by “democracy” and were being fixed by the Muslim Brotherhood.
State Sen. Dan Patrick, the chairman of the Texas Senate Education Committee, plans to investigate, stating the lesson appeared to be “anti-American,” denigrating democracy and teaching Islam while Christianity is not.
The incident is being blamed on the curriculum they were following called CSCOPE. It’s a left-wing curriculum, obviously. Full story at Yahoo News
Last year, we were told by CAIR’s co-founder, Nihad Awad, that Muslims discovered America “Some documents and accounts indicate that Muslim seafarers were the first to reach the U.S., [so] the bottom line is that Islam played a part in the establishment and development of the U.S.” Daily Caller
This absurd falsification of history has been included in some textbooks used by our public school students.
Now we can pretend terrorists are freedom fighters much like George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
