Perry's Twin Mandates For Kids---Gardasil for the Veins; Islamopropaganda for the Brains
08/20/2011 | Brices Crossroads

Posted on 08/20/2011 11:52:40 AM PDT by Brices Crossroads

Before I began to research Rick Perry's record, I perceived him to be nothing more than a garden variety southern Republican governor, probably conservative, certainly more conservative than his 2010 opponent Kay Bailey Hutchison. But the fact that he had such a spirited challenge from both sides in the GOP primary, both from the moderates AND the Conservatives, made me wonder just how conservative he really was. Just a bit of research revealed the gardasil mandate on preteen girls and their parents (and the cronysim associated with it), his full throated advocacy of open borders, including a pipeline for illegals dubbed the Trans-Texas corridor, his provision of in state tuition to the offspring of illegals, his doubling of the state budget during his tenure and his support in 2008 of the pro-choice social liberal Rudy Giuliani for President. I was not shocked to find he was not a conservative (After all, 49% of the Texas GOP voters, who are overwhelmingly conservative, voted in the primary not to renominate him.) What took me completely by surprise was his great affinity for Islam, the warm words which the Hamas front group CAIR has for him but most significantly of all, the Islamicization of the curriculum in the Texas public schools which the supposedly conservative Governor of Texas has quietly implemented.

Perry, you see, has a cozy relationship with the Aga Khan, the head of the Ismailis, a realtively small sect sect of Shia Islam that reportedly has 15 to 20 million followers. Perry and Khan have confected two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and Ismaili institutions, the most significant of which is a program, now pervading every Texas public school, to proselytize and to desensitize, schoolchildren about Islam. Dubbed the "Muslim Histories and Culture Project", it really amounts to Islamic propaganda forced upon a captive audience...the malleable youngsters attending Texas public schools.

Up until a few days ago, the Texas school curriculum could be viewed on the SAN ANTONIO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT's own website:

www.saisd.net/admin/curric/sstudies/mhcp/mhcproject.html

This link has now mysteriously disappeared. I wonder if that has anything to do with the following posting on Pam Gellar's Blog, which exposes the entire enterprise, and which thankfully saved the curriculum abstracts:

LINK

Before the link to the San Antonio Independent School District Website was disabled and the website scrubbed, Gellar and company had lifted the curriculum abstracts from it, which show:

"a) High praise for Gov. Perry's collaboration with the Aga Khan, leaving no question about Perry's complicity and active support; and b) A thorough whitewashing of the nature and history of Islam that ignores Islam's bloody history while simultaneously portraying the Crusades as a bloody assault on Islamic soil by Christians."

*******************************

The curriculum abstracts characterize the interaction of Islam and Christianity as follows:

"While Islam "spreads" and "extends," presumably in the same way that dew forms on flower petals, Crusaders "wrest political control of the Holy Land from Muslim rulers, damaging the positive relations that had previously existed." Nowhere is it mentioned that the Crusades were prompted by two crises: (1) the ruthless treatment of Christian pilgrims attempting to see Jerusalem, which was under Muslim control, and (2) Byzantine Emperor Alexius's plea for European knights to help him take back territory that had just been overrun by an invasion of Muslim Turks. "

***********************************************

Also lifted from the now scrubbed website was the following:

"A presentation of the Koran and Muhammad that can only be described as open proselytization for Islam in public schools.

An idealized portrayal of Cordoba's "multicultural" society that minimizes the oppression and political upheaval that took place under Muslim misrule, which largely brought on its own demise through infighting similar to what we see in the Islamic world today. A bizarrely twisted portrayal of the Islamic world that blames Islam's repression of women on Western Colonialism.

A naked advertisement for the Aga Khan and the Ismaili sect of Islam. This is particularly dangerous because the Ismailis are a sect of only about 20 - 30 million people -- approximately 2% of the entire Muslim population and therefore not representative of Islam as a whole. Also, while the Ismailis may portray themselves as relatively modern, they still have an anti-Western historical narrative that portrays the West as colonialist while ignoring Islam's own bloody form of colonialism. In making overtures to build bridges with one small Islamic sect, Gov. Perry has replaced the Western narrative of history with the narrative of 1.5 billion Muslims who see the West as the enemy. AND YES, THEY REALLY DO SEE THE WEST AS THE ENEMY, as this curriculum makes clear."

*******************************

After reading the teacher's abstracts of this Islamic proselytism, which can be seen by scrolling down the link, I was aghast. If any teacher in the public schools dared to even mention Christianity or Judaism, they would be fired. This curriculum mandates far more than a casual mention. It lionizes Islam, papers over its excesses and trashes Christianity, all at the same time. It is doing immense, yet very subtle, harm to the most vulnerable among us...school children. I daresay that most public school parents in Texas are unaware that their children are being brainwashed in such a fashion.

It turns out that Rick Perry, the godfather of the gardasil mandate for preteen girls also subscribes to another mandate... mandatory Islamic proselytization. Both mandates, it should be noted, require no parental consent. This brought to mind the old slogan Jesse Jackson used to use, "We want hope for brains not dope for veins." Apparently, Governor Perry's education platform was "Gardasil for veins; Islamopropaganda for brains". As the writer correctly observes:

If Barack Obama had imposed such a curriculum on schools we'd be calling for his impeachment. Therefore it is unconscionable to look the other way when it comes to Perry.

The best that can be said for Rick Perry in connection with the Perry/Khan curriculum is that he is very naive. In putting across these two odious mandates on public school children in Texas, gardasil and the euphemistically titled "Muslim Histories and Culture Project", Perry has demonstrated either a colossal lack of judgment or a hidden (and darker) agenda, either of which should disqualify him from consideration for the GOP nomination.

I don't know much about the Texas governor but I respect BC and find his comments on Rick Perry and Islam provocative and definitely worthy of discussion. If, indeed, his facts and context are wrong in some way, please correct them instead of attempting to dismiss them with sneering one-liners. Thanks.

Untill why don’t you keep your powder dry and quit trying to trash the only reasonably conservative candidate presently in the race that can beat Obama.

we bring up serious specific policy items.

and the honorable response of Perry supporters?

“You are full of CRAP! Did you vote for Zero in 2008??”

when Michelle Malkin dared criticise Perry, they assasinated her character and motives!
and she’s endured more viciousness from liberals than Palin!

i have asked for specifics from Perry supporters, on WHY they believe he is conservative. socially, certainly.
which i respect and admire!

but he’s another big government establishment Republican, who supports Amnesty, and doesn’t understand the real danger of Islam. in fact, he praises it, as a “religion of Peace”, while Sharia movements and Gulen Islamist schools multiply IN TEXAS.

...and Perry supporters can only call us names. how adult.

I think many of us are desperate to save our country. That translates to winning the Presidency and Congress in 2012 or else we’ve failed.

So be tolerant of those who might be looking for someone who can beat Obama. They may be foregoing their first choice to improve our chances of winning. This election is not politics as usual, it’s America’s survival.

Thanks for the ping, lucy.

As FReeper Bronxville informed us: "The gardasil vaccine was only approved about 7-9 months when Perry signed his executive order without going through the legislature - the whole thing was fast-tracked. There’s been at least one death and thousands of other side-effects from this vaccine. We’re dealing with corruption in our whole government system from the deals with Monsanto to Vaccines for some rare flu that all of a sudden just happens, and so on... We need someone in there who can fix it and that’s NOT slick Rick."

==============================================

Shining the light of truth on the present governor of Texas usually results in being labeled ‘pro-obama’ or called a ‘troll’.....and even a Paultard.

ANALYSIS Perry’s coziness with the Chinese and foreign investors exposes a huge weak­ness in his right flank—illegal immigration and open borders. The Trans Texas Corridor has been linked to the global plan to economically integrate North America, with the eventual goal of a common security perimeter modeled after the European Union. Perry ushered in in-state tuition for illegals and has long been an obstacle to immigration reform or any Arizona-style immigration law.

Perry has been endorsed by neocon guru (Fox talking head), Bill Kristol. Yikes. Neocons and Perry----what could possibly go wrong?

Ah, it was only yesterday (before 2010 Midterms) that Billy Kristol was humming the neocon theme song, "The Decline and Fall of American Conservatism." KRISTOL WROTE: The “art of government” is to translate the “liberal or radical impulse into enduring institutions,” which in a constitutional republic means that neocons want socialist ends to be achieved with conservative means.

==============================================

So how did Rick Perry and the neocons meet, and live happily ever after?

Remember when Rick endorsed Rooty Giuliani?

Fox talker Billy Kristol's father----neocon Irving Kristol (now deceased)----was Giuliani's "foreign policy advisor."

As Irving famously wrote: "The historical task and political purpose of neoconservatism is.....to convert the Republican Party and American conservatism in general, against their respective wills, into a new kind of conservative politics suitable to governing a modern democracy."

Sarah Palin believes in Reagan’s 11th commandment NOT to criticize fellow Republican politicians. That is a good policy for any politician.

Me? I’m a citizen and a voter, lifelong conservative Republican, and am objectively assessing Republican candidates for 2012.

Pointing out past actions of those who want to be our presidential candidate does not, in any way, equal trashing them.

I now know enough about Romney, Perry, Huntsman, and Christie, to know I will never vote for any of the four. Why?

All of them are too much like liberal Democrats. So, why should conservative Republicans vote for a liberal Democrat wannabe when you can vote for Obama?

Jim,
The thing that I have been noticing about Perry (and Romney, for that matter) is that he has to run away from his record because so many components of it are NOT conservative. Bachmann has a conservative record, so I would not challenge her policy positions. The knock on her would be lack of executive experience.
Palin is the only one who is solid on both policy and executive experience. That is the way I see it.

Um, are you saying that disapproval of Perry gives you grounds for suspecting someone is a lib? Really? Because I don't like Perry either, and I'm a lifelong conservative Republican who voted for Reagan and more recently for Palin and whats-his-name, with a whole lot of nose-holding in between. Methinks your "obot detector" needs some serious recalibration.
