Texas Students Told Boston Tea Party was Terrorist Act

Texas lawmakers are putting educators on the hot seat after public school curriculum surfaced that was promoted Islam and socialism while deconstructing American values and patriotism.

School children were exposed to lessons that labeled the Boston Tea Party an act of terrorism. They were also instructed to create flags for socialist and communist countries. And they were also given in-depth lessons in the Islamic faith that included classroom readings from the Koran.

“They are indoctrinating our children to hate America,” said Janice VanCleave, of Texas Education Patriots. “Texans are embarrassed about this.”

VanCleave’s organization launched an investigation that exposed CSCOPE – an electronic curriculum system that provides online lesson plans for teachers. The curriculum is used in 80 percent of the state’s school districts.

As I remember it from my history classes.... it was a reaction to the unfair taxation by an over reaching government.... Kinda like what is happening right now in our government... if history repeats itself, the next "tea party" may happen at any time.

And make no mistake they will be labelled as domestic terrorists.

I think what nodog is saying is that the British and the Tories or loyalists in the colonies at the time would have viewed the participants in the Boston Tea Party as terrorists, while those in the colonies opposed to the British (and us Americans today) would view them as freedom fighters or "patriots."

In other words, one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter. Indeed, DHS is increasingly viewing staunch conservatives, libertarians, and the like as "right wing extremists" which is only a short hop, skip, and a jump to "terrorists."

Now, as pertains to this TX school book controversy, I have no idea what in the world the Boston Tea Party, terrorists/freedom fighters, etc. have to do with socialism, communism, etc. We need to be careful jumping to conclusions based on a news story (even if it is from a source we may respect) since this may only be a lesson to show what I pointed out above - one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter. I'm sure the Nazi's viewed the French Resistance as terrorists.
