Revised: Texas Schools - More Anti-US Propaganda

Revised 4/3/13- This article paints a grim but accurate picture of how the Left is working to get Texas under their control:


This is only a follow-up to a post from a few weeks ago. When I saw the above article, I wanted to put it with the earlier one, but decided that it would not be seen if I merely did. a revision.

"A Texas mom is furious after discovering that her son’s school is teaching students that the United States is partly to blame for the 9/11 terrorist attacks that claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people.

Kara Sands, of Corpus Christi, Texas, took to her Facebook and posted photos of the test administered by Flour Bluff Intermediate School. The test reportedly covered content in a video fifth-grade students watched in class.

Of all the questions about the 9/11 attacks, Sands was most disturbed by question three:

“Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?” The answer? “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.' "

Many conservatives pin their hopes on Texas remaining as a strongly conservative state. The Left has no intention of allowing this to happen. They are working feverishly on the curricula of public schools to promote anti-US and Western attitudes and to excise any lingering pro-US feeling that the kids may have received from their reactionary and anti-progressive parents.

When the topic if secession is broached by its proponents, Texas is sort of put on a pedestal as a model state and lynch-pin or core state of a restored republic. A probable secession scenario has all the Pacific states and all or almost all of the Atlantic states going with the Leftist/Progressive side. (I treated the notion of  two-part and non-contiguous states in previous posts which are linked at the bottom.) For a hypothetical Gulf state for a restored republic, Texas is the most promising, but -

Couple the demographic trends above with a generations of brainwashed students, many of whom will vote in 4-8 years, and Texas may very well fall.

Without Texas, even in an intact US, a national election is less than a charade; its electoral votes are too many and too crucial to lose. For a restored republic, losing Texas could easily leave the hypothetical new state landlocked. With no access to deep water ports, the new republic will be strangled at birth.

Texans have to fight hard and to start doing so now. As far as I am concerned, Texas is our Athens*. As Herodotus noted in The Histories, if Athens had submitted to the Persians or remained neutral, the enemy would have picked off the free Greek states one by one. Even if Sparta never yielded, she would have eventually have been overrun once all of her allies were out of the fight. The Athenian navy was the lynch-pin of a free Greece. For a free US, Texas is a must-win state. Without her electoral votes, we lose every national election. Without her ports, a restored republic free of Leftist handcuffs will wither on the vine.

* I later thought about the chorus of jeers that would make fun of Texans for not being 'cultured'. My point was that Texas, like Athens was, is terribly crucial in the scheme of protecting our nation as a free country. As for being cultured goes, I would rather be associated with good-hearted people with common sense and bit of fear of God than a cosmopolitan jerk who plays the iconoclast against everything that is good.

-This is the original post on the present situation on the ground in Texas schools:

When Rick Perry scoffed at the claim that Texas will soon become "purple" then a "blue" state, I wondered if he was denying the obvious or if he was really that dense.

The Left desperately wants the electoral votes* of the Lone Star State, and they are working at a feverish pace to get the job done.

*Leftists decry the assignment of the electoral votes as it was designed to offset the natural electoral power of the most populous states. Today the highly-urbanized states are almost in a position to carry a national election by themselves. While Leftists hate the fact that the electoral college exists, they are fully aware of how it works, and they have every intention of getting Texas under their control. Once they are successful they will surely change their tune and extol the virtues of the electoral college.

As I have noted in previous posts, the Left wants a classless society of people who have no knowledge or interest of their heritage. Only by creating such a society can they move to eliminate national sovereignty and begin a full-blown despotism of socialist committees.

One method is to dilute the electorate by importing so many people from markedly different cultures that assimilation or integration into the culture of the host nation is impossible.

Working in parallel with the former is the just as effective but far more insidious technique of excising all understanding of a people's or nation's sense of identity. Primary school textbooks are doctored to contain Leftist views of history, admirable people and events from a nation's past are left out, and the students grow up knowing next to nothing about how their society and nation came to be. Products of this Leftist kulturkampf leave high schools in a sponge-like state, ready for the heavy doses of anti-western propaganda's of college.

It is working. High school seniors are already telling their parents that they would get rid of imperialist/colonialist holidays such as Thanksgiving if they could. Not only have I read numerous accounts of similar incidents, but I personally know of this occurring in New Jersey. These young people are or will soon be of voting age, and they will likely be no friends of American society and virtue. Having been fed a steady diet of anti-western/American lessons, they will utter no peep of protest when their children are subjected to the same brainwashing.

The top links are recent reports of events in Texas schools. The first concerns a Spanish class in which the teacher apparently felt that Spanish literature offered nothing of value, so the students were required to recite the Mexican national anthem and pledge of allegiance. Cervantes and others can be conveniently ignored.

The second reports on students that were given a more interesting assignment:.

"Parents are demanding answers after a Texas teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and told the class to refer to Muslim terrorists as freedom fighters.
Texas state Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the Senate Education Committee, has launched an investigation into the incident. He told Fox News he was disturbed after seeing a photograph of female students wearing burqas and learning that students were reportedly taught that the cause for Egypt’s turmoil is democracy, not the Muslim Brotherhood, based on an article by the Washington Post."
The third is the blaster:

"A curriculum system used across the state of Texas reportedly includes a lesson plan for 6th graders instructing students to create a flag for a “new socialist nation” using “symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism.”

The following was taken from the CSCOPE curriculum lesson plan: “Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?' "

Today, we have yet another report of the goings-on in Texas, and it is a comprehensive and voluntary self-indictment of those who are making all of this happen:

-Excerpts from the link above:
Bolding is added.

"In February, Texas announced that the state, along with the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum (TESCCC,) would enact major changes to the controversial curriculum management system dubbed CSCOPE. The system received a litany of complaints from faculty members and parents alike concerning its lack of transparency(parents were allegedly not permitted to review lesson-plans), lack of oversight from the State Board of Education, and for allegedly imposing oppressive working conditions for faculty members.....

To note just how off-color some of the CSCOPE curriculum is, consider that the Texas CSCOPE Review, an independent watchdog group, uncovered an out-of-date, optional CSCOPE lesson-plan on terrorism — “World History Unit 12 Lesson 07″ — which allegedly likens the Boston Tea Party to “an act of terrorism.”

Using a chart, Barton documented and mapped out core CSCOPE material, which eliminates national values, Americanism or rather, American exceptionalism, the study of federalism and majority rule (the core of our constitution) along with patriotic symbols like the Liberty Bell. Christopher Columbus, Rosh Hashanah and Christmas are all relegated to the dustbin along with American military history. Equality and a belief in justice is replaced by “fairness” and instruction on American propaganda and imperialism.

Disturbingly, Beck and Barton noted that the worst is yet to come. Showcasing a lesson plan for grades 1-3, Barton revealed CSCOPE’s list of “heroes,” which comprises a dozen secular progressives and only three conservatives or political moderates."

It gets worse:

"According to a previous report from TheBlaze, teachers complained that they were expected to deliver the curriculum verbatim and only on days allotted by the CSCOPE lesson plan. Even if students were unable to absorb the lesson, teachers were allegedly directed to progress to the next lesson regardless. TheBlaze also reported that teachers were “asked to sign a contract that would prevent them from revealing what was in the CSCOPE lessons or face civil and criminal penalties.' "

I hope that everyone sees what is going on. If the States do not take action now, they will, likely within 10-20 years, all fall to swing-state or blue-state status. The Left will not only have won handily, but those who advocate American principles and virtue will at that point be in no position to even break off from and form a new and restored American republic. The youth are being trained to detest or ignore all of the people, their actions, and events that shaped the very nation that bred them. If the schools can be taken back immediately then we have a chance to avert catastrophe, but given the political climate, that will be an uphill battle.

In The Spirit of Laws, by Charles de Secondat, Baron de Montesquieu*, the author repeatedly stresses that the primary means by which a republic can survive is if the people have a love of their country. Without this, the republic will fail.

*Along with Locke, Montesquieu was a source of political though on whom the Founders greatly relied. His work had tremendous influence in the drafting of our Constitution, especially with the actual separation of powers of our government, an attribute that has sadly become ineffective.

No system of government lasts forever. We currently live under the longest-lasting Constitution in the world. That is a major achievement and a credit to those who crafted it and later defended it when our nation was threatened with collapse. We cannot, however, continue to cling to it if it is no longer what it was intended to be. I would rather lay it to rest honorably than live with it as a facade of a government animated by Leftist thought.

We still, barely, have the power to create a restored American republic comprised of the states that are not already lost. Our children deserve to learn about our history in a manner than makes them proud of our nation.

If we do not act, and soon, all will be lost.
