Progressives battle Texas Textbooks

California lawmakers are attempting to impose California’s
corrupt textbook standards on America by passing a bill to counter the
Texas Board of Education Textbook Standards.
In an effort to fast track his bill, California Senator Leland Yee
(D) scrapped his existing SB 1451 (Osteopathic Medical issues) and
replaced it to counter Texas Textbook revisions, thereby skipping the
true introductory process.
As California is the only state that purchases more textbooks than
Texas, Yee’s block of Texas changes should dramatically influence
publisher’s compliance. Yee is pulling off a power play to lead the
nation off a Progressive cliff with California. His bill has already
passed through the Senate Committee and it will be voted on by the
California Senate this week.
California is notorious for an outrageous public school curriculum.
In 2008, Governor Schwarzenegger had to veto California’s bill to
promote Communism in public school.* (What a coincidence, Yee accuses
Texas of pushing "a more positive portrayal of Cold War
anticommunism.") Communism, homosexual practices, censorship of
anything Christian while some schools require students to get on their
hands and knees and worship Allah as the only worthy god, take Muslim
names, imagine being a Muslim soldier and fast for Ramadan "in
demonstration" because our California standards state: "Simulations,
role playing, dramatizations and cooperative learning are encouraged."
Muslim websites post objections to Texas changes because it
"increases the teaching of Judeo-Christian influences on the nation’s
founding fathers." Are we not allowed to recognize how our nation was
founded? America is a melting pot, for people to "melt in," not set
themselves apart and demand we conform to their culture. France is
falling apart because of Islamic communities forming and demanding
Sharia law. Our flag has been thrown down and Mexico’s raised while
our children are sent home for being patriotic.
The official analysis of Yee’s bill by California’s Senate
blatantly admits a liberal bias already exists because the bill notes:
"The Texas Board of Education has changes to the social studies
curriculum that a majority of the board sees as moving away from a
liberal bias; others believe the proposed changes insert a
Yee’s bill is RACIST on it’s face because it demands curriculum
include "contributions by both men and women, black Americans,
American Indians, Mexicans, Asians, Pacific Island people, and other
ethnic groups." Contributions to our society should be measured by
merit, not the color of skin! It doesn’t matter what color or
ethnicity our founding fathers were, what matters is what took place!
Revising history to appease other cultures is disingenuous at best.
Americans demand our history regardless of color!
Yee’s bill also demands that any material be prohibited that
reflects adversely upon persons because of race, color, creed,
national origin, ancestry, etc. History is a record of past events. To
alter or exclude events because someone might be offended is stripping
facts and reality from our schools. Should Germans object to all
mention of the holocaust? NO! How can our children learn the truth if
we’re running around putting a bag over their head? Teach our children
truth and facts that we can learn from them, not politically correct
lies because of California’s corrupted standards.
California Senators who have already voted to pass Yee’s
anti-American bill are
Christine KEHOE (D) San Diego
Elaine K. ALQUIST (D) San Jose
Ellen M. Corbett (D) San Leandro
Mark LENO (D) San Francisco/San Rafael
Lois WOLK (D) Davis
Leland Yee(D) San Francisco/San Mateo
The shame of not voting goes to
Mark WYLAND (R) Escondido
Curren PRICE (D) Los Angeles
California Senators, you are on notice. Vote for SB 1451 and face
the wrath of Californians in the voting booth. We are FED UP with our
public schools teaching progressive lies, our votes being challenged
and our voices ignored. Our children are captive audiences held
hostage because when parents object, our children take the fall.
Progressives have taken over our government, our public schools and
are infecting our children.
To the rest of the nation, you can easily help protect our schools
from the Progressive poison of California. Find your STATE Senator
