Madrassas Should Be Model for America’s Schools
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 9 July 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 07/09/2012 3:15:30 PM PDT by John Semmens

Representative Andre Carson (D-IN) suggests that public schools in America be reformed along lines to make them more like Islamic schools.

“In terms of effectiveness, the madrassas far exceed anything we’ve seen from the vast majority of this country’s public schools,” Carson argued. “The typical American public school student is an unmotivated drone with a sense of entitlement. Our graduates are too often indistinguishable from ignorant louts.”

“In contrast, the madrassa student is taught respect and obedience,” Carson asserted. “Its graduates are highly motivated to fight for change. Many are even willing to give their lives in this fight.”

As a final argument, Carson reminded everyone that “president Obama is a product of a madrassa education. His towering strength and undiluted commitment to fight for the transformation of this country is as strong an endorsement for the reform I am proposing as anyone could want.”

The same was true at the Hitler Youth encampments. We all know how that worked out.

Where did this guy serve his hard time?

Conversion to Islam in prisons is a big thing now.

And you thought prisons were just academies for the further hardening of criminal tendencies. Turns out they are also excellent adult-level madrassas.

Not only hardened criminals, but hardened jihadists as well.

This must be a parity, no one could be that deluded and get elected to office. The comparisons to Hitler Youth, and the khmer rouge abound. If this is no joke, this man must be replaced as soon as humanly possible.

It's a satire.

Nevertheless, Carson should be replaced.

By golly, you're right. This is the first time that I've read a "Semi-News/Semi-Satire" article and did not catch on.

Either I'm losing my grip on reality or - more likely - the satire was very close to the truth.

Interesting conundrum for this dummie...how does he connect the so-called results of the madrassa education of the looter in chief with the approval of gay “marriage” and late-term abortion? Both of those are taboo in Islam.

Seems like the looter in chief forgot about those things from his Islam education, so maybe it is not so effective after all. Just like he does not have respect for anyone else, except if they are Muzzie kings.

WRONG

His grandmother who held the seat and died in office was functionally illiterate AND senile.

The good news is they've lumped all the Baraqqis into one district making a bunch of others locks for Rs.

They are, they are, with the exception that, instead of giving religious education (religion is taboo in public schools), they are giving sex education and exercises in “personal pride”.

America’s schools should be ‘modeled’ after ‘madrassas’ (Islamic schools).

“His grandmother who held the seat and died in office was functionally illiterate AND senile.”

Reflecting back on my 22 year residence in Indianapolis, I am now convinced that Julia Carson was the role model for Maxine Waters and Sheila Jackson Lee. The idiocy is breathtaking.

Gosh, thanks for the invitation to this craptire thread. The puerile high-fives will no doubt ensue when you catch freepers unaware. Of course, if [satire] were in the title, there would be no criticism and you rump rangers can be on your merry way.

I added ‘craptire’ and ‘not worth reading’ to the keywords. Thanks for the heads up.

If only the author could write well, then this would be enjoyable.

My name john Semens. I no ken write. So I steal hedlines, real storries end slap my title on it & call it satire. Itz mucho eazier than write my own stuff for humur. Uv korse, if I encluuded [satire] in the titel of da thread, very few freepers wuld read it. So i stuck, bein’ crap writer and all, with this aproche.

This is one of the ways I relax.

I get to poke fun at all the wrapped-up-too-tight weenies who love to catch unaware freepers. These threads will soon have more sarcasm humor than supposed satire humor. All because the author doesn’t write very well, he’s a blog pimp, and won’t put [satire] in the title. After a while these threads won’t be much fun for the Semmentic followers, they’ve already started whining. The Semmentics will see the lack of humor in the craptire and Semmentic-boy will include [satire] in the titles, and those of us who think this craptire is worthless can just zoom on past his worthless posts. Everyone will be happier, except those puerile posters who like catching freepers.

So, are you having fun? If this type of writing is supposed to be so humorous, why is it that putting [satire] in the title is going to ruin it? Because... it aint satire, it is craptire.

I don’t see a keyword either. Very few freepers read them.

Of course, if Semmentic boy really intended this to be simple satire, he would put [satire] in the title. His obvious motivation is to catch unaware freepers for ridicule. Such puerile bowl sheet is somehow fun, like a kid putting a whoopie cushion under grampa’s chair for the 40th time; it gets old.

Cute, but highly misleading.

If you had done a screen shot of what I posted it would have shown the word “satire” right under the title of the article.

Nothing cute or misleading about it. In fact to classify it as such is a bald-faced liberal Obama like lie.

That is a real time screen shot of the “Latest Posts”.

Go to the top of your “Pings” page and on the left there is a “Forum” link which shows latest posts. I click on the “Comments” option so I can glance through the list for something interesting that a fellow FReeper has posted. It is irritating to waste my time by clicking on something that appears interesting only to find that it is really a poorly written sack of your crap.

This shouldn’t be so hard or is your stupid act more of your stupid satire? Or are you just too damned childish to admit that you are wrong and that few will intentionally go to your threads if you put “satire” or “crap” in the title?

Well, the screen shot of the “Latest Articles” does show the word “satire.”

I have received extensive reader feedback on this issue. Here is the problem. A few, like yourself, demand that the word “satire” be embedded in the title. A larger number insist that the word “satire” should not appear anywhere in the post. I have tried to compromise by ensuring that the word “satire” appears right below the title and again in “key words.” The vast majority of my readers are happy with this compromise.

I’m sorry if this resolution doesn’t satisfy you. I could also point out that my name is included in all views of my posts. That could be your key for warning you not to waste your time reading something you detest so much.

There is such a wide variety of stuff on Free Republic. No one could possibly find every bit of it interesting or valuable. The sensible approach is to skip over what you don’t like. To expect everything to conform with your own idea of how it should be done is not sensible. Resorting to intemperate and abusive ranting reflects poorly on your judgment. Surely, there must be a better use for your time. Aren’t there significant threats on the left that might be moderated by some effort on your part? Or is your self-appointed role of “blog police” the best you can do in the battle for liberty?

Cute, but highly misleading.
***You’re the one who’s been engaging in highly misleading practices here on FR. Sadly, it is only because you enjoy ‘gotcha’ on catching unaware freepers, like a junior high cretin.

So, if being misleading is what you consider wrong enough to post about, we should expect you to stop being misleading. But you won’t do that, because of the junior high level writing and ‘humor’ that you’re engaging in. It would be so simple to include [satire] in the title, but you contort yourself into a pretzel to avoid doing it in order to preserve that juvenile high-five gotcha tendency.

You did not even read what Eaker wrote, the approach that many freepers use for reading articles. Such an approach doesn’t show up any keywords , but if you included [satire] in your title it would show up. The reason you refrain from doing so is due to your childishness.

It would be so simple to include [satire] in the title, but you contort yourself into a pretzel to avoid doing it in order to preserve that juvenile high-five gotcha tendency.

***That’s humblegunner’s job. You wouldn’t even be on his radar if you had been using [satire] in the title.

Are your readers having fun, is this engagement humorous to them? Because it’s fun for me, and I can populate all your threads with back & forth about craptire until you lose all your readership. But such a thing doesn’t even need to happen, all you need to do is include [satire] in the title.

But something in your character prevents you from doing that. That juvenile gotcha mentality seems to have never been outgrown. It shows up in your crappy writing as well.
