Texas Moves To Limit Islamic Brainwashing In Textbooks

The Texas State Board of Education has approved a resolution condemning “pro-Islamic/anti-Christian bias” in public school textbooks, Texas’s KTBX reports. Why? State board candidate Randy Rives explains that Islamicists are influencing the state’s textbooks as a way to brainwash children, and ultimately to “take over America without firing a shot.”

    Dude…its so true…if we let kids go around thinking that Islam isn’t outside their door at night plotting to slit their throats…they grow up thinking that other people aren’t inherently hostile to them…and then it would be hard to get them to sign up to kill when told to or vote the way they’re told to…and that would be awful…disgusting…almost like an educated democracy.

      educated democracy?…like islamic sharia law? why not teach both the bad and the good of all religions and let parents decide for their children?

        You know the politicians most opposed to Islam are usually the same ones that want to be tough on crime. They would love Sharia law, if only it could be rebranded as Biblical law.

    Seriously, have you actually read the textbooks you have to buy in college these days? There is an incredible pro-Islamic bias. Even in something like Human Sexuality I had a textbook that first lined up how women of the bible seem to be mistreated and then ranted and raved for 2 full pages on how Islam treats their women excellently and how polygamy isn’t that bad for them (basically for the exact same reasons that they were just criticizing the bible).

    The Saudis are investing millions and billions into the US, and one of the places they’ve tried to take over is education. They have the money and they’re happy to try to push their agenda monetarily. I’ve have all sorts of textbooks talk about how great Islam is, despite the textbook having nothing to do otherwise with religion! This is no different than any other attempted corporate brainwashing, but this time that corporation is an extremist religious state.
