Tucson, AZ sounds like a First Class SHITHOLE of a town. Is AZ ANOTHER early 20th Century MISTAKE?

One good sign is that the left is beginning to fracture over this kind of thing.

It isn’t Tucson’s fault that it’s schools are loaded with revolutionaries and progressives.

I doubt the media in tucson educates the populace about the danger.

Does your local media educate you about the revolutionaries in your area? In the schools?

I know mine doesn’t.

“Tucson, Baja Arizona” sounds like a First Class SHITHOLE of a town.
That's better and more accurate.

“Is AZ ANOTHER early 20th Century MISTAKE?”
Not if we can get rid of Pima County.

I am waiting to learn the names of the person who wrote this material, the publisher who put it out there, the people on the curriculum committee that approved its use in the public schools and the teachers who are using it. I want names. i want to know who is teaching hate to our children. Let's assign some responsibility and hold these traitors accountable.

But you know what’s the worst of all?

If we yank our kids out of their liberal indoctrination manufacturing camps, they attack us.

We need homeschooling and vouchers to defend our children from progressivism.

Here's the book:Occupied America: A History of Chicanos

Here's who wrote the book: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodolfo_Acuña

It was published by Prentice Hall.

I recommend everyone interested read this: http://www.scribd.com/doc/32001977/An-Open-Letter-to-the-Citizens-of-Tucson

True, it's almost like it was planned that way.

The most amusing part is near the end when a board member (perhaps the chairman) somewhat indignantly asks the young woman not to speak the vulgar terms that she’s quoting from the book because there might be kids in the room - I would have immediately asked him if he is as bothered by the fact that those books are in the hands of every *third-grader* in the school system to be read themselves!

Appalling! But you must go higher than an AZ school board to get this nonsense out of our schools. The only text books available to American schools are those that are adopted by the California and the Texas text book committees. I think TX is the only state that allows parents on their textbook committee. It’s been a long time since I looked into this, so I’m not sure that that is still true.

The reason that all text books in America are controlled by CA and TX is that those are the largest purchasing groups. The publishers cannot (or will not) publish a text book that cannot be sold to the largest number of schools possible. My daughter and son in law both work in the text book publishing business. It’s a matter of $$$.

This must be a grass roots, national effort (concentrating on CA and TX) to get this stuff out of our schools.

Texas ed board vote reflects far-right influences

AP AUSTIN, Texas — A far-right faction of the Texas State Board of Education succeeded Friday in injecting conservative ideals into social studies, history and economics lessons that will be taught to millions of students for the next decade.

Teachers in Texas will be required to cover the Judeo-Christian influences of the nation’s Founding Fathers, but not highlight the philosophical rationale for the separation of church and state. Curriculum standards also will describe the U.S. government as a “constitutional republic,” rather than “democratic,” and students will be required to study the decline in value of the U.S. dollar, including the abandonment of the gold standard.

A better cartoon would have the carjacker dead with blood leaking out of his head on the pavement, two good people standing next to him, saying “Good people with guns”.

” If that cartoon’s real, that’s one stupid kid. “

If I read the little print at the bottom correctly, the ‘toon is by one “Chuckie Bloomer” - which would make it *two* stupid kids...

It is interesting how deep anti-capitalism runs amongst the nation’s teachers. I did not notice this until about 10 years ago (living in a bubble, I guess). Among many teachers (including some in my own family) the word “profit” is considered a dirty word. I wonder where these rocket scientists (no offense meant to real rocket scientists) think their salaries and benefits come from?

The point is that the children are being taught that it’s better to be killed by a perp with gun than to defend yourself with one. I want to shout this from the rafters!

No distinction is made between law-abiding gun owners and criminals with guns.

This kid won a “First Annual Flashbunny.org Children’s Anti-Gun Drawing Contest,” for Heaven’s Sake! This is an outrage of tsunami proportions.

So, where did this little 6-year-old kid get these insane, anti-American, anti-Constitutional ideas? And how do we protect our children from this pernicious perfidy?

The left is working on their third or fourth generation of brainwashed kids. How long do you think we can keep our Republic if their success continues?

Word of just exactly how bad this is, as illustrated by the child’s drawing, must reach all Conservatives everywhere, or we are lost.

They need to have a class project, try to run a lemonade stand with Marxist ideology.

Pick all the smart industrious students and the lazy good for nothings and put them in a group to run the stand. Make them sell lemonade and give the lazy good for nothing students the same amount of profit from the stand as the ones doing the hard work. Keep going until one of the industrious students complains then mock and belittle them for being “racists and mean spirited”. Keep running the stand and every time the industrious students complain you but back the amount of their share because they are complaining. Give the industrious students the opportunity to leave and form their own stands. See how long it takes for the Industrious kid’s stand to be better than the lazy ran one. Then have the teacher demand that the good student;s stand be “taxed” because it isn’t fair that the original stand isn’t working.

This is how progressives thing, not by merit, but that if your neighbor has something nice they must have “stole” it from you because they project their own worthless incompetence onto others.

That’s a great Conservative version of the child’s drawing.

However, the point of posting it with a note saying, “Look what they’re teaching our children!” and “Stamp out this kind of idiocy” was to say that the child, brainwashed, drew something ridiculous, and at the same time, he made our Conservative point that when outlaws have guns, outlawing guns only kills good people.

Thanks to those who just don’t understand it, the graphic has been scrapped from the FReepathon.

The kid made an unintentional indirect point in exposing the vapidness of the liberal brain washing in his drawing.

I thought I would share a version that was more “direct”

“Pick all the smart industrious students and the lazy good for nothings and put them in a group to run the stand. Make them sell lemonade and give the lazy good for nothing students the same amount of profit from the stand as the ones doing the hard work.”

They already do this. It is called “Group Projects”. My very bright daughter (13) was in tears after getting stuck twice in a row with a couple of goofballs. “Why do it if we’re just going to get a bad grade anyway? Why do I have to do all the work? It’s not fair!”

When she said the “It’s not fair” she laughed, as that was their first life lesson ingrained on them since the age of two!”

It was a teaching moment. Yes - they (the teachers) are trying to break you. Don’t let them do it. You work hard for YOUR grade. If the other slouchers ride your coat-tails this time - so what. They will fail in the end and you will move on.

And - it is good experience for life. When you work in an office and you have to work with other slouchers and idiots.

From the book:

“The revolution stands in life’s dark shadows waiting patiently for her (unintelligible) troops. The revolution sees Mexicans turning into gringos her (unintelligible) like washed up gringos …[sellout] and kiss the mans ass.”

I don’t know. Pretty much all of it is unitelligible to me!

The Tucson Citizen is owned by Gannett. Sonora is a state in Mexico adjacent to Arizona. The Three Sonorans are “progressives” who admore Noam Chomsky. Is it all beginning to make sense? They never thought that anyone but their Atzlan-commie friends would ever see that video.

First place I tried to download it from youtube, it was removed because of a copyright claim from Three Sonorans.

Always a good thing to download early and often. The vermin will try to clean up as soon as they see they're busted.
