Texas Fights For Us All Against Pro-Islamic Textbooks
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Paul Cooper

“When you sell a man a book you don’t sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue – you sell him a whole new life.”

- Christopher Hurley

That famous quote by Hurley is exactly what many on the Texas school board are afraid of. Will our young people get “a whole new life” that ignores the dangers of Radical Islam? The recent uptick in the culture war over the Islamization of America has led some teachers and school boards to look much more closely at what we are teaching about Islam.

A few weeks ago, we at NewsReal were one of the first to break the story on New York high school exams promoting Islam and tearing down the history of Christianity. Some folks in Texas have taken a look at their own history textbooks and have seen the same problem. Now the Texas Board of Education is set to vote Friday on a resolution to get rid of textbooks that whitewash Islam’s history while attacking the spread of Christianity. The board is in a three day meeting to determine if current history books are filled with “pro-Islamic, anti-Christian half-truths and selective disinformation.”

In the world of textbooks, when Texas makes a decision it affects everyone. The state’s rules set the precedent for their 4.7 millions students, and their book choices are usually adopted by many other states. Those opposing the conservatives on the board understand what’s at stake.

Publishers take this kind of thing seriously and will do everything in their power — rewrite and revise — to make sure their book doesn’t become a hot button point of contention. Publishers have Texas under the microscope. Dan Quinn, a spokesman Left-leaning, Austin-based Texas Freedom Network

Found it funny that a lib friend who just posted a rant against this on facebook also deleted a post from a friend of his who replied that kissing Islamic butt isn’t going to end global terrorism either.

So SOME censorship apparently is okay.

The big controversy here in Texas is NOT that kids are being told “about Islam”, it is that they are being sold a bunch of half-truths (only the “good”) while Christianity is being slammed in the same texts as a “violent” imperialist belief system.

The capital of the Islamic empire does not permit ANY other religious expression or texts. They segregate non-muslims from muslims. Slavery is still permissible in the Islamic world today.

Lies by omission are lies.

Same with the lousy red diaper doper babies who call our founding fathers “hypocrites” because they owned slaves and spoke of free men. Can we look at world history in perspective to what other nations were like then? Can we condemn those nations today that STILL practice slavery 150 years after we gave it up?

It’s a matter of time before the muslims take over. And they will because there aren’t enough REAL MEN in this country to stand up and do what must be done. In fact, there aren’t even any “leaders” who will stand up and SAY what needs to be done.

If we don’t deport every muslim, we’re screwed. But what do we do? We allow them to build mosques with barbed wire around them that they can hide behind and and plan their attacks. I can’t imagine what the people would have done had we allowed the Nazis to build “planning rooms” in 1944.

Go Texas!!


Mike Pence speech on the presidency:

“The President of the United States of America bows to no man.
You do not bow to kings.
When in foreign lands, you do not criticize your own country.
You do not argue the case against the United States, but, rather, the case for it.
You do not apologize to the enemies of the United States.
Should you be confused, a country, people, or region that harbors, shelters, supports, encourages, or cheers attacks upon our country, the slaughter of our children, our mothers, our fathers, our sisters, and brothers… are enemies of the United States. And, to repeat, you do not apologize to them.”

Because posting etiquette is far more important than learning the muzzies want to indoctrinate schoolchildren and Texas leads the fights against pro-islamic crud in school textbooks.. :::Rolls Eyes:::
