Sixth-grade children in many Texas public schools are being tasked with designing flags for a new socialist nation as part of the state's curriculum, EAG News reported Monday.
"Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag," says a lesson plan being used as part of CSCOPE, the curriculum being used by over 70 percent of Texas school districts.
"Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?" the lesson plan asks.
According to the Associated Press, witnesses told the Texas Senate Education Committee last week that the program promotes liberal values they described as "anti-Christian at best and openly socialist at worst."
"Does that sound like we're sympathizing with those types of countries?" Sen. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) asked regarding the flag assignment. He later said that he found it very egregious as a Texas and an American.
"Committee Chairman Dan Patrick, R-Houston, called it 'a mess.' One witness compared the system to 'mind control,' and an algebra teacher wept as he described quitting because he felt he was 'aiding and abetting a crime' by using CSCOPE in his classroom," the AP reported.
An article at Texas CSCOPE Review was even harsher in its criticism, accusing Obama of "teaching our children how wonderful socialism is and that communism is even better."

Considering the politicization of some teachers, that might be what is dangerous about CSCOPE.
Texas right? You want something that represents socialism? How about depicting a big pile of horse or cow dung. No, wait. Those at least have some redeeming value as fertilizer.
Doesnt Texas write most of the new school books?
You're exactly right.
The kids could have a lot of fun with this.
A graph pointing down, a flag full of tombstones, a toilet, the words "freedom" and "liberty" being crushed by a jackboot.
These are just a few ideas, I'm sure patriotic students can come up with even better ideas to pelt their "educators" with.
I wonder how soon Texans will be ready for their original Republic of Texas flag.
I have posted information on here before about C-SCOPE. It is leftist crap. Even the teachers complain about it and it’s very expensive. While Texas is very conservative, like the rest of the country our schools are infested with leftist pushing their agenda.
How about some guy getting cornholed?
When will these asshole teachers be satisfied: Rewrite history
no heroes of freedom no patriots no statesmen! No great honor to a flag that represented Freedom to the World for 200+ years
We have infested our Nation with idiots that have no love for freedom until it will be taken away and then want and cry to be saved!
Our youth will suffer the thousand cuts!
As we suffer the thousand cuts as we watch with out true clear common sense and the ability to act on the Obama culture that has captured the fools of the Nation!
The second Revolution will have to occur not because of an
an Enemy abroad but from the enemy from within!
Wise up America what have you done! Doc
True, but the Governor could use the executive branch as HIS bully pulpit and raise a big stink about this. If the roles were reversed, demoRAT socialist governors (and especially 0dumb0) never shy away from attacking anything on the conservative side or their policies & agenda. But Repubs constantly meekly hide behind some garbage piece of protocol that the RATs ignore all the time.
The symbols I would use would be a boot on the neck or a gun aimed at the head.
I thought there already WAS a design...
Luv it!!! to get me to laugh that loug at midnite is a real fete!!
I would draw an AK47 with a 30 round Mag on it with a Swastika in the background and see what they thought of it.

The vast majority of 1st graders today are going to be full blown communists by the time they finish school.
“Now, where be all dem Texas freepers who swear that Texas will never turn blue....?”
Yeah, I’d like to know the answer to that too! All the Texans talk trash about the other states (most notably California) when they need to be tending to their own problems. Texas has an enviable economy at this juncture, but it looks like it’s education “system” is rotten at it’s core!

Texas is swirling down the same toilet California is.
The governor and Dan Patrick and every other republican state legislator could talk about seccession. But they won’t.
Yup, another reason to homeschool.
