The San Diego school boards anti-Islamophobia campaign kicked off at Logan Elementary School Thursday with lessons from the Council on American-Islamic Relations.
CAIR spokesman Hanif Mohebi told the mostly Latino seventh- and eighth-graders he was just like them once, and Muslim bullying is the same thing as Latino bullying, according to KPBS.
Where youre sitting, I used to sit there, Mohebi said. And without my beard, I used to look exactly like you, and people used to think Im Mexican. So Ive heard all the negative stuff that they will say. And it hurts.
The district-sponsored presentation came with pamphlets that read Know your rights as a Muslim youth in school, and tips on handling deescalating Muslim bullying situations.
Its part of the boards promise to the people in response to heated campaign rhetoric and pressure from CAIR and its followers to address alleged rampant bullying of Muslim students. The Muslim advocacy group pointed to a years old study it produced that contends 55 percent of Muslim students in California have faced bullying or discrimination, most of which was verbal, KPBS reports.
Basically, CAIR conducted its own survey and results favored its mission. Mohebi used the report as evidence to build a campaign to call on the school board to address Islamophobia and bullying, which the school board approved in July 2016. Six months later, Mohebi is in schools in person to talk about the alleged bullying and promote Islam, according to the news site.
The message seems to be sinking in. Alfonso Ruiz, 14, now understands theres a lot of people who dont like him, and Muslims and Latinos are on the same side.
To all the people who bully Muslims or Latinos, stop it. Treat them with respect. Even though theyre from a different race or religion, theyre still human beings, the eighth-grader said.
Ruiz was the only student who spoke with KPBS. Others in a photo from Mohebis talk appeared less than enthralled.
The cost of the anti-Islamophobia campaign is unclear, but officials are expected to expand it across the district later this year.
In the meantime, superintendent Cindy Marten is trying to figure out how to come up with $124.4 million to cover the projected deficit for 2017-18, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
And it sounds like some people will lose their jobs.
According to the Union-Tribune:
The San Diego Unified administration recommended in December, when the deficit was projected at $117 million, cuts in the following areas: $44 million in cuts to the central office, $21 million in cuts to campus support services, including maintenance and custodial; and $52 million in last-ditch cuts to schools.
Even before the deficit grew to $124 million, the San Diego County Office of Education sent a letter to the district expressing doubts about whether enough cuts could be made to meet the required 2 percent budget reserve.
Meanwhile, 4 percent raises authorized for teachers and other employees will account for $28 million of the deficit next year.
Having a factual understanding about Islam, the Buslim Brotherhood and affiliates like CAIR in particular, is apparently Islamophobia.
Screw fear, screw Islamophobia. Islamisia, hate the effers.
More false witness. From there is no terror to now the terrorists are Americans and not refugees.
These judges promoting false witness should be imprisoned. There is no way this BS should stand.
They imply the terrorist attacks are American and not refugees! Of course at first they wanted to drop the word “terrorism” as a deal so that Americans would not feel threatened that it only meant to go after them!
If I were Trump, I would ask the judges who should be jailed and on what social justice terms?
This is nuts. But this is how you run a plantation and submit people, pretending black refugee
lives matter and turning around scaring everyone
Has America already gone over the cliff? I guess we’re just waiting for the nation to hit the bottom ground dirt??
CAIR and La Raza need to be declared terrorist organizations.
When do we get speakers coming in about anti-Christian and anti-conservative bullying?
War was declared 1,400 years ago by islam, a terrorist organization, against ifidels, Jews, all unbelievers. I haven’t seen where that has been rescinded.
So, Dhemocrats-in-waiting: Get it over with. Convert. Subject your daughters/granddaughters to ‘the little nick’ since it is haram for women to feel sexual pleasure. Marry multiple times and have as many children with each as possible. You know you want to.
Tired of the “brown people gotta stick together” meme.
Some even play up the “intifada” struggle to claim the Southwestern US as Mexican birthright because hundreds of years ago it was briefly part of Mehi-Co.
The public “schools” are now teaming up with ISIS? You’ve got to be kidding me. Shouldn’t they be teaching the young skulls full of mush to not engage in Trumpphobia and Trump Unacceptance and Resistance Disorder (TURD) groupthink?
This is disgusting beyond belief, and Trump needs to designate the Muslim Brotherhood and CAIR as banned terror organizations. Unfortunately he has weakened his own position by obeying the Washington district judge’s TRO on his refugee order.
It boggles my mind, I just can’t understand how people can be so totally stupid. Is it brainwashing? How does so many people become so totally consumed with not just ignorance, but pure beyond belief upside down lack of reasoning skills total freaking insanity?
Crack down on that school system. War must be fought to be won.
I don’t think he weakened his position. I believe President Trump is playing his chess game wisely. He knew it couldn’t win the 9th Circus. That is why he didn’t send in his best folks. He is exposing the swamp monsters and the people who are able to understand are noticing. He is also seeing where the problems are and taking notes. Besides, if he didn’t go by the law and use the system against itself that would create it’s own set of problems.
Who the hell has “bullied” ANY of them? I call total BS.
That man, Hanif Mohebi, is a soldier in a war that has already started.
Not only have the left dumb downed the youth, they have bored them to death!
2 APPEALS courts ruled against ObamaCare...did it halt the program? NO.
public taxpayer funding is providing the forum for this indoctrination of our children?
if the SDUSD had even the SLIGHTEST knowledge of who CAIR is and what it represents, they’d NEVER EVER let them anywhere near our kids!
unless, of course, they’re part of the enemy within our tent?
