Sixth-grade children in many Texas public schools are being tasked with designing flags for a new socialist nation as part of the state's curriculum, EAG News reported Monday.
"Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag," says a lesson plan being used as part of CSCOPE, the curriculum being used by over 70 percent of Texas school districts.
"Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?" the lesson plan asks.
According to the Associated Press, witnesses told the Texas Senate Education Committee last week that the program promotes liberal values they described as "anti-Christian at best and openly socialist at worst."
"Does that sound like we're sympathizing with those types of countries?" Sen. Larry Taylor (R-Friendswood) asked regarding the flag assignment. He later said that he found it very egregious as a Texas and an American.
"Committee Chairman Dan Patrick, R-Houston, called it 'a mess.' One witness compared the system to 'mind control,' and an algebra teacher wept as he described quitting because he felt he was 'aiding and abetting a crime' by using CSCOPE in his classroom," the AP reported.
An article at Texas CSCOPE Review was even harsher in its criticism, accusing Obama of "teaching our children how wonderful socialism is and that communism is even better."

Who; really; is the Governor?
Well...you’d want to give the socialists a bit of encouragement...so you’d start with blue on the left side of the flag, and a big white star in the middle of the left half. Then you’d put a bit of white on the top half of the remaining part, and a bit of red on the bottom half of the remaining.
Then you’d start talking ‘republic’ and using the word a good bit.
After a while, you’d act more independent than the other socialists. You’d let them know that you had some character in you...like Davy Crockett, or that Bowie guy.
Then you’d start to let folks know that your general motto was ‘not to mess with you’.
Then you come to suggest that income taxes aren’t necessary, and you’d talk up the idea of a balanced budget.
And after a while, you’d talk to the NFL and ask if they could allow you a football team, and you’d think long and hard over the name for that team.
After that, I just don’t think you’d be a socialist anymore.
Crossed AR-15s and semi-auto Shotguns.
Check that, it's already to late. As someone once so aptly put it, America is just a "t**d going down the toilet." We're sunk...............
The Governor of Texas has no say in the education material for the state. This dubious honor is one of the TEA (NEA version for the schools of Texas)
I can’t believe this is going on anywhere in the US but Texas?
Mentioned over at The Blaze as well:
The good news is when my grandson starts home school, I have to believe the materials won’t have any of this trash in it. In fact, webTVs should soon give every family the ability to ‘Opt Out’ of mainstream media in total; Hopefully my grandkids don’t even hear the word GAY until middle or high school.
did I win?
Seven flags over Texas. Thanks Marxists - may we now secede?
Now, where be all dem Texas freepers who swear that Texas will never “turn blue”....?
