Imagine finding this question on a 9/11 quiz given to your 10-year-old child:
Why might the United States be a target for terrorism?
A. Other people just don’t like Americans.
B. Terrorists hate everyone.
C. Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.
D. None of the above.
(The “correct” answer is “C.”)
Not only did a Texas mom find this question on her fifth-grade son’s quiz about 9/11; she raised holy hell about it, which led to Flour Bluff Intermediate School in Corpus Christi, Texas removing the question from the quiz. That’s the good news.
The bad news? The school, along with thousands of others across the country, continues to force 4th, 5th and 6th graders to watch a video – “Remembering September 11th” – which places the blame for the attack smack-dab on America – not on radical Islam.
P.S. This video has been shown to kids for more than ten years.
Shocked? Me neither. Here’s a partial transcript:
Kid: “Why would the terrorists be so mad at us anyway?”
Man: “A lot of people blame the United States for problems around the world.”
Kid: “I don’t get it.”
Man: “America is such a big and powerful country that the decisions we make here affect other countries around the world. And a lot of people think that we don’t use our power the right way. That’s because sometimes the things we do here can have a negative effect on other countries. And a lot of people disagree with the decisions and policies that the United States has.”

This is yet another obscene attempt by the “progressive” left to program the youth of America. How is it that this video has been shown in tens of thousands of classrooms across the country for more than ten years – and most parents never even knew it existed – much less, that it has been shown to children as young ten years old?
I don’t know the answer to the question, but I do know this: It’s way past time that parents have a say in their children’s school curricula. Whether it’s teaching our kids that America brought 9/11 upon itself, inviting Planned Parenthood – America’s Abortion Mill – into classrooms or forcing students to stomp on a piece of paper with “Jesus” written on it, the leftist agenda must be thwarted at every opportunity.
The future of America may very well depend upon the attention parents pay – or don’t pay – to the education of their children. The leftists are counting on the latter.
