Lunacy still reigns in Tucson, as members of the Tucson Unified School District board attempted to hold a meeting to discuss the anti-American Mexican ethnic studies program. The La Raza endorsed program which teaches students the U.S. is an imperialist nation and the American Southwest belongs to Mexico, has obviously done its job. The students don’t find much to celebrate in the Constitutional process as they drown out the board with shouts of “No vote! No vote!” punctuated by defiant fist thrusts as they attempt to silence free speech.
At a previous meeting these same unruly goons, using thuggish tactics chained themselves to desks, chanting, screaming, and banging their hands on the desks for two hours, to prevent the meeting from taking place.
The district isn’t calling for an end to the program — although it should. Instead, it wants to make the controversial and biased history class — that calls for “death to the invaders” and advocates overthrowing the U.S. government — an elective course, rather than continuing to allow it to substitute for required history credits.
The Blaze provides some of the shocking excerpts of the seditious program being taught in Tucson’s public schools, funded with taxpayer dollars.
Along with the riot police who were on scene last evening attempting to maintain order, so was Ward Churchill, the discredited and fired Universityof Coloradoprofessor, who was spotted encouraging the protests. Churchill, who taught ethnic studies at U of C, was exposed as fraudulently claiming American Indian heritage — although that’s the least of his appalling conduct. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks he wrote they were justifiably provoked, and compared the innocent victims of the World Trade Center to financial workers in “ongoing genocidal American imperialism,” likening them to the complicity of Adolf Eichmann in organizing the Holocaust. He called those who perished in the WTC, “little Eichmann.”
Former AZ Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Horne has long protested the TUSD program and was instrumental in the passage of HB 2281 which “prohibits a school district or charter school from including courses or classes that either promote the overthrow of the United States government or promote resentment toward a race or class of people.” (Complete bill information here). Fortunately, Republican Horne is now the state Attorney General with the responsibility to ensure the effective enforcement of this law.
Jonathon M. Seidl at The Blaze does a masterful job shining a bright light on the dark goings-on in Tucson as riot police were called in to try to restore order to last night’s meeting. The vote was tabled and another vote has not been scheduled.
