Texas Schools Now Teaching Boston Tea Party Was Act Of Terrorism….And More

Does anyone remember the video that began to circulate where a FEMA representative told local police in Oklahoma that the founding fathers and Christians were terrorists? If you thought that was the end of such statements, let me awaken you to the reality that public schools are teaching something very similar to that in the U.S. occupied State of Texas. They are teaching students, contrary to their parents wishes, that the Boston Tea Party was an act of terrorism and that those who did it were terrorists.

Before we go further, let me state clearly that I fully understand the sentiments of those who engaged the Boston Tea Party. I understand their desire to make a statement. It wasn’t right for them to take what belonged to someone else and destroy it, but I did get the sentiment and would never call it terrorism. No one was killed. No one was threatened. It was a statement that they were not going to be taxed by England without being represented.

This December 16 will mark the 239th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. The protest has been historically recognized as the event that sparked the Revolutionary War. However, this is how it is being taught via the Texas public school system’s World History/ Social Studies lesson plan (Unit 12: Lesson: 07:

News report: New Act of Terrorism

A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port. Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities. It is believed that the terrorist attack was a response to the policies enacted by the occupying country’s government. Even stronger policies are anticipated by the local citizens.

In fact, much of the curriculum seems to suggest that anyone who opposes or does not agree with what government is doing is somehow labeled a “terrorist.”

After the above story is read, teachers are then instructed on how to manipulate the students thinking. From the lesson plan:

There can be no doubt that these lessons are geared to tying the historical Boston Tea Party with terrorism and that concept then tied to the current Tea Party movement and thus to terrorism.

The company producing the lessons is CSCOPE. So just who is CSCOPE? They are an offshoot of the State Board of Education in Texas. They are owned by Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC). According to CSCOPE’s website:

CSCOPE is the source for an all-in-one approach to a quality curriculum system. CSCOPE is a comprehensive, customizable, user-friendly curriculum management system built on the most current research-based practices in the field.

CSCOPE has several sample resources and samples that you can view here.

A reader of FreedomOutpost sent me information on the curriculum and also spoke with me via telephone. She informed me that many parents were denied access to the curriculum by teachers and superintendents. This is in direct violation of Texas State Law. From the Texas Constitution:

Sec. 26.006. ACCESS TO TEACHING MATERIALS. (a) A parent is entitled to:

(1) review all teaching materials, instructional materials, and other teaching aids used in the classroom of the parent’s child;

However, it doesn’t end there. CSCOPE also imposes a “gag order” on teachers using the site, which I have been informed they were made to sign a copy without legal counsel.

In addition to the above, note the counter cultural anti-Christian lesson offered by CSCOPE via the CSCOPE review website:

CSCOPE Lesson: Christianity is a Cult

In addition, they then provide false and misleading historical data pertaining to Islam, such as the following screenshot:

Also, the curriculum seems to be not only anti-Christian, but also pro-Islam as demonstrated in this Power Point presentation.

There is also Population Dynamics, along with Population Demography curriculum that is taught to the students. While population dynamics and even demography may be helpful to some, the question that should arise is, “Why is this being taught in public school?” The answer comes from a very presumptive source, the United Nations.

In their International Commission To consider Zero Population Resolution they address “High School Ambassadors” and cite the following:

As the world approaches a population of seven billion people, Secretary General Ban Kimoon would like you to participate on an international roundtable to discuss the issues associated with this growth. The outcome of this roundtable will be a report educating people of your age, around the world, about the impact of the current growth projections on specific countries throughout the world and possible measures that could lessen those impacts.
To be prepared for the roundtable, you will need to understand the basics of population dynamics and factors that impact populations. Specifically, you should focus on the following:

• Biotic and abiotic factors that limit population growth
• The relationship between carrying capacity and population growth
• Calculating birth and death rates as well as identifying exponential and logistical growth patterns

You will need to demonstrate your understanding of population dynamics, utilizing appropriate technology, and incorporate this in your final report to the UN Roundtable by applying it to a specific developed and developing country. Your report should include the following:

• Demographic data for each country including birth, death, and fertility rates
represented visually
• Description of the type of population growth being experienced and the key social,
biological, political, and economic factors impacting that growth
• A position whether to support or oppose the pending resolution that the world must
achieve zero population growth by the year 2060
o Support your position using trends and predictions based on your research.
• Alternative measures to limit impact of growth

My friends if you live in Texas you had better wake up and either stand up against the state run schools or get your children out of there. This not only applies in Texas, but in all states. Consider homeschooling your kids. They will gain the best knowledge of all things from you, not to mention you will have the greatest amount of time to input your values, principles and morals instead of having to counter what the statists are teaching your kids.

  1. Do you see, now, what I mean about your narcissistic viewpoint? Your assumption that I did not, have not, never will read the Federalists Papers, James Madison, US Supreme Court case law, et al, is flawed. Assumptions do not move me, but apparently they are foundational to your every argument. Like subjectivity, assumptions are very personal, lack solid evidence, and are formed via possible learning we achieve from past, personal experiences. They are merely subjective inferences we gather along the path of life and academia. Our best guesses do not qualify us to read the minds and know the lives of others. Some can come close, however, but only after years and years of clinical study and field practice which focuses on the ABC’s, so to speak, of human nature and the human brain. Anything else is a guesstimate, and it is usually incorrect.

  2. You made more than one point in the total of the comments you made regarding this post, and I tried to respond to them all in one sitting. I did not focus on that one aspect.
    If you do not read it that way, there is nothing I can say to make things more clear.

  6. You did not address me in your contradictory response to Rolf, but I couldn’t help but ask, “When did you change your mind, Ed, from [If you think Texas is teaching kids that any American patriot was a terrorist, you don’t know Texas, you don’t know how to tell parody from reality, or you’re so gullible . . .’] to what you say today? You talk out of both sides of your mouth. You insult and demean from the left, and then, without any attempt to explain, you jump in another direction. First you claim that I lied. Then you argue that it, in fact, is not a lie but needs to be qualified.
    You are infamous in your disregard for the truth. Those who were Britain’s enemy “terrorists,” were freedom fighters to the Colonies.
    The “rigorous program” design, you mentioned, which dictates that those textbooks meet “high standards,” begs a question or two, if for no other reason than, whose standards do you mean, what rigorous program designed by whom do you mean, and who decides what kids need to know, other than the parents of those kids? You further claim that those schools that do not fall in line, have the “worst textbooks,” and again, according to whom?
    Moving on; identifying Communists, as well as GOP members, who “want to overthrow the government,” are subjects so different in agenda and philosophy, although you choose to overlook that. If it were not for “terrorist” Tea Partyists, of that day, you would not be able to pass out the drivel you do. Your question, third paragraph, is ludicrous and your point cannot be compared to the real issue. The fact that you don’t, or that you refuse to see that, is evidence that you have no talent for critical thinking and that you cannot separate yourself from your own political biases. It is obvious that you are comfortable with a totalitarian government, as long as you can perceive it as freedom. You prefer we all be led around by the nose, that we do not rock the boat, and have the same perspective as you. However, the rest of us do not feel that way.
    You might appear credible were it not for your academic narcissism, which is blatantly present throughout every comment you make! You are not the final word, sir, even though you wish it. That ego facet of your character, will never allow you to be wrong, to admit wrong, or to show error at any degree. Furthermore, the notion that your “links” support your views is a matter of smoke and mirrors, as well as your personal interpretation of a past author’s interpretation of something which happened more than two hundred and fifty years ago–an accumulation of subjective nesting dolls! That is all that stands between your view and mine.

  7. Rwolf, we have this thing in the U.S. called “the First Amendment,” which reiterates the structure under the Constitution in which the government may not tell people what to write, or what not to write. “Identifying” communists is no different from outing Tea Partyists and followers of David Barton — while someone can make an argument that they don’t like that influence, it’s illegal to tell David Barton he can’t write books.

    Most states have a rather rigorous program designed to make sure textbooks meet high standards of accuracy and contain what kids need to know. Oddly those states who have moved in the direction you urge have the worst textbooks.

    Do you also believe GOP members should be “identified” because many of them want to overthrow the U.S. government? Do you think everyone who signed the petition for Texas, or your state, or any state, to secede, should be barred from writing textbooks, and arrested in your dystopian future?

    Seriously: Would you read James Madison’s “Memorial and Remonstrance,” and the history behind Virginia’s Statute for Religious Freedom, the case of John Peter Zenger decades earlier, and the Federalist Papers discussions on freedom of expression and ideas, and get a clue about what America protects, why we have good government, and how freedom of speech really works?

    Links coming up.

  9. I believe any persons involved trying to rewrite children’ U.S. History Books that are connected with Communists or communists groups, should publicly be identified because they may have a conflict of interest with the truth, why Americans fought in the American revolution e.g. to be free of British rule.

    I believe Communists in general should be identified because some Reds want to overthrow the United States Government; confiscate Americans’ Property. It is foreseeable in the future that politically things could radically change, that Americans may support at large arresting communists, including those in U.S. Government believed to threaten national security, especially where proven linked to a foreign power that wants to harm America.
