SHOCK: This PBS ‘Lesson Plan’ On ISLAM Has Americans Screaming For Trump To CUT FUNDING!
If you are a conservative who might be on the fence about Trump cutting the funding to “educational” programming like PBS, this is certainly going to help you make up your mind.
“Dying To Be A Martyr” is supposed to teach 9-12th graders about topics such as “why the Middle East conflict began and continues today” and “why individuals and groups sometimes turn to tactics of terrorism, and evaluate how terrorism affects the world we live in.”
If this doesn’t sound like indoctrination, I don’t know what does.
According to The Federalist Papers, the program features Palestinian terrorists and “would better be described as anti-Israeli propaganda.”
Students are also apparently asked to understand how and why Palestinians would feel the way they do (terrorist-y), but oddly, they don’t do the same for Israel, who they seem to paint as these terrible oppressors.
The Blaze is reporting that not only are the taxpayers bankrolling this crap, but JP Morgan Chase is also listed in the lesson plan’s credits.
A review of the LearningMedia website by The Blaze found at least six lengthy lesson plans focused on teaching students about various aspects of Islam, including “The Five Pillars of Islam,” “The Haj: Journey to Mecca” and “Salat: Prayer in Muslim Life.” However, no similar lesson plans covering other religious groups—including Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Taoism or Hinduism—were discovered on the website.
The Christian Action Network sent a letter to the Department of Education demanding that PBS stop publishing blatant propaganda and indoctrinating students to believe that Islam is anything else than the most barbaric religion on the planet.
I’m glad that I’m allowing the government to steal obscene amounts of money from me so they they can turn around and undermine everything I believe with my cash. If anything should ever offend you, it should be this crap. It’s a slap in the face to everyone who has been affected by terrorism.
