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."

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
..trying to take out Texas from within before it can become the main player in secession from the union—Washington fears Texas...
Texas will turn blue faster than a kid holding his breath if the RINOs pass amnesty.
“The vast majority of 1st graders today are going to be full blown communists by the time they finish school.”
Read the comments at the end of the article. People are furious, especially grandparents who are probably more knowledgeable about socialism than their sons and daughters.
Why is there so much secrecy surrounding this curriculum? Why can’t teachers discuss it, why can’t parents see it? What parent in their right mind would send their children to a school where they don’t have access to their children’s learning materials?
Why did this happen in Texas, of all places?
Bookmarked for later reference.
I think PLMerite won.
I’d show a guy plowing a field by hand and someone standing over him with a whip.
Euro-weenie trash flag
Where is Rick Perry in all of this???
“Texas is swirling down the same toilet California is.”
Yes, but don’t you understand, “Texans are proud of Texas.” They just don’t think that people in other states should have those same feelings for theirs. I mean after all, California has “faggots!” Now who could be “proud” of a state that had “faggots?” And of course California “has illegals” too. Oops, so does Texas, but they try to tell you that theirs are “better.” Why because they have to swim to get into Texas so they are cleaner? Oh well, as they say the cow $hit is deeper in Texas! And Texans, tell us, does your school system still “allow” the teacher to “paddle” your kid without your permission? Yes, Texas has all these “advanced” discipline tools in their schools, and now they have “creative flag design!”
See what the teachers think (while we still have thinking teachers}
A buddy of mine has this flag hanging upside down at his business. He knows who his friends are..
what the foxtrot? It’s all so backward, everything. I can only say lucifer is working double time these days.
Holy Crap! Now, who wants to turn in their guns?
Surely you can see/feel the end times approaching.
Indeed, Satan is building his kingdom, and the left is actively working with him, knowingly or not.
Texas is the next Kalifornia!
And now, the rest of the story...
Texas Senators blast pro-socialist teaching curriculum
(Not to mention angry Texas citizens...)
I could see, for example, a pair of shackles inside the Obama "O" over a black background encapsulating the socialist reality in flag form.
Kind of like this.
This sounds even worse than elementary school in New York. Our kindergarten class was assigned a redesign of the American flag, but without the Socialist intro. At least the Texan children weren’t required later to get up on stage and perform, ‘M is for Martin’, as in Martin King, as we ignorantly had to.
CSCOPE are the same oxygen thieves who were getting raked in a Texas Legislature committee last week for calling Boston Tea Party members terrorists in their , for lack of a better term, history book.
In a large sense it reminds me of a Frank Peretti book( principalities and ppowers like the story of Elisha and his follower,"oh Lord open his eyes,") then sometimes I can imagine the impending darkness like a JRR Tolkein book the closer the Hobbit gets to Mordor.
In reality though I think some are completely naive, others actually believe in this crap but have no idea lucifer exists and would pooh-pooh ya if you called them on it. Then there are those like Alinsky and others who fully know and yet still funnel society as a whole down the tubes, this includes some of the churches and pastors and rabbis and alleged"good" people.
It's now "earth people" vs" pilgrims in the battle of the centuries. BUT if we could bet I'd toss all my money on our monarch, OUR Leader, Yeshua!
We win in the end but until He chooses the time and place, we will suffer the moral decline of society not just in America, but all over this lil world.
WE have lots of Republicans in TX, but socialism is creeping about everywhere. Socialists think they will score bid in 2014 and 2016 in TX.
i definitely feel the end times approaching and feel Satan at work. and it very much puts me in mind of the Frank Peretti novels. i recall a sermon from long ago saying that satan laughs when he hears people pooh-pooh his existence, because he knows it makes his work that much easier if people don’t believe in him.
That truth inspired my tagline.
The leftists are Humanists by religion. They truly believe they are simply working for themselves as autonomous beings, or “for the betterment of mankind”. They do this and count it for themselves as righteousness.
Most feel this kneejerk rebellion, resistance, and spite for anything Christian, but justify it to themselves as “they’re just trying to control me, so I’m right to resist”.
Very, very few realize that they’re actively working to build Satan’s kingdom.
that’s an excellent observation.
“Texas Senators blast pro-socialist teaching curriculum”
So what? The Republicans in our legislature here in CA do the same thing. It’s means nothing!!! BTW how about answering about the paddling of kids in Texas schools. Let’s let the “foreigners” here in other states get to know the “real Texas.” I could tell stories that would curl your hair about racial “attitudes” in rural Texas communities. I have first-hand “experiences” in a certain Texas town that’s near PK Lake.
Parents gain access to secret school curriculum
Texans aren’t just sitting idly by, you know...
“Texans arent just sitting idly by, you know...”
Neither are a lot of us in other states. The point is that it IS HAPPENING in Texas too! the rest of us poor folks who live elsewhere, are just tired of Texas Freepers acting like they live in the land of milk and honey. No question, you have a more business-friendly government than do a lot of other states, but beyond that, you have the same $hit going on as the rest of us. It’s just time you got off your high horse and acted like the whole country mattered, not just where you happen to hang your hats. I actually “looked” at moving to Graham. Tx to manage a facility for a company for whom I worked. When I asked the mayor if the Graham “public pool” was integrated he said and I quote” Why sho, course the ni__ers don’t come because the know they aren’t welcome.” What a great racial attitude in today’s world!
