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."

Red stars on a white flag of surrender.
So no actual students were tasked with doing this, right? This is one of 1,600 “lesson plans” on this online system? I’m not at all shocked that somebody in the schooling industrial complex managed to get something like this instituted as an example lesson plan—they probably let teachers upload whatever they want—but I’d be surprised if a school in Texas actually had kids do this.
They should let me teach this lesson (though I’m not a teacher). I can tell the kids what sort of symbols might be ideal. A fat party member riding around in a limo, for example, or firing squads of those pesky evangelical Christians, or starvation in labor camps.
Or Sean Penn.
Agree on all points. I think the Republicans need to grow a spine and go out and hurt some people’s feelings. They need to get in some of these “Rats” faces about some things...
The new flag of socialstan !
We need to return to our roots and buy alot more rope!
It is WAY past time for idiots like this to be tarred and feathered. IMO this crap will not stop until it is harsely dealt with.
Looks like an episode of “Hoarders”
All those books need a re-distributing to the local garbage dump...
They started small,through the back door and grow bold of late. We have to work small too. First we change Presidents Day back to George Washington’s birthday...or Martin Luther King day to Civil Rights Day. This is a start on bringing back our history to our kids.
Avoid AP US History and AP US Government. Both teach the Socialist view of America.
Are you connecting the dots??? Hhmmmm?
I would show mass graves. Then a statement about how many millions of people that socialists and communists killed in the 20th century.
I’d probably get kicked out of school.
Excellent site to help understand what else CSCOPE is teaching.
Texas 6th graders design flags for a new socialist nation
Great resource. Thanks.
I am surprised as well. But suspect the NEA will push their agenda even harder in red states. If they can brainwash enough young skulls of mush maube they hope to eventuallyu flip the state from red to blue
