Last week I reported on a heartening victory by anti-Shariah activists in Tennessee, who succeeded in preventing the textbook authority for the state of Tennessee from purchasing school textbooks using pro-Muslim propaganda to whitewash the history and doctrines of Islam.
Last week’s victory, however, was just the first hurdle. This coming Wednesday the Shariah proponents will be making another attempt to jam their textbooks through. On the off-chance that there are any Tennessee residents reading this who were not otherwise aware of the issue, here’s the notice sent out today from Lisa M of Rutherford County ACT! for America:
Please help us make an impact – join us for the Tennessee Textbook Commission Meeting, Wednesday 10/23/13, 10:00 a.m.
Davy Crockett Tower
500 James Robertson Pkwy.
Conference Room 1-A
(Please note the change of location from earlier communications)
On 10/8/13 the State Textbook Commission declined to accept any of the proposed Social Studies books. That decision was huge, and it was unprecedented and we are so pleased with that outcome… however, the Commission is holding an emergency meeting on 10/23/13 and we need to be prepared for a possible reversal or compromise that will not be satisfactory to us. They are also not allowing any public comments at this meeting, so we MUST show our strength in numbers.
Look forward to seeing you there!
The textbook issue is a crucial one. If you have school-age children, and these textbooks gain approval, your kids will be indoctrinated with information that contradicts their parents’ values. If your family attends a church or synagogue, what your kids hear in school will be diametrically opposed to what they learn in their place of worship.
And all paid for with your tax dollars, naturally.
This is not a battle we should ignore. The Counterjihad activists of Tennessee are to be commended for their forthright stance on this and other issues pertaining to the Islamization of their state.
