Texas Sixth Graders Being Taught About Beheadings [View all]

In a state that shelters students from sex, in a state that rigidly believes that creationism is a valid scientific study, 11-year-olds are being confronted with one of the most brutal truths of our modern world and many parents have no problem with it whatsoever. At Alvin Jr. High in Alvin, TX, where Fox News most is most likely the news of choice, six grade children are being taught to fear, with lessons of ISIS beheadings.

Here are copies of the lesson from ABC 13.

At first glance, this lesson may seem politically neutral, as it should be, but itís not. The ďWho is Funding ThemĒ section is particularly misleading. ISIS is not stealing their funding as much as being handed it by Americaís allies, like Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. And, they havenít stolen our military equipment as much as picked it up off the ground after Americans left the unjustified war in Iraq.

More significantly, the lesson teaches that an attack inside the United States is almost inevitable. While this may or may not be a legitimate risk, the odds of an American child being killed by a terrorist attack are almost nil. An 11-year-old child is infinitely more likely to be killed in their parentís own car than at the hands of a terrorist, but letís teach them fear of brown people at an early age, right?
