The following is a video of a parent reading excerpts from the so-called "ethnic studies" material that is being taught in the Tucson, Arizona public schools. The course is required from third grade through twelfth. This curriculum teaches children the U. S. government needs to be overthrown, and free-market capitalism eliminated among other things.
WARNING: THERE IS PROFANITY IN DIRECT QUOTES FROM THE ETHNIC STUDIES CURRICULUM IN THIS VIDEO. Keep in mind children are exposed to this from nine years old on.
Did you note the objection raised by one of the school board members to the reading of the profane language in a public meeting because of children being present? In other words, it's appropriate for this kind of thing to be in the classroom in the name of "diversity", but inappropriate for the same children in a school board meeting. This is a typical leftist's version of the First Amendment.
Did you also catch that this teaches that the southwestern United States actually belongs to Mexico, referred to by militant Hispanics as AZTLAN?
A LAW was passed in Arizona last year that banned tax-payer funded schools from "offering classes that are designed for students of a particular race and promote resentment toward a certain ethnic group (in this case whites)." (SOURCE) Yet, the Tuscon Unified School District continued to require it. Late last month, the school board was to discuss making the course an elective rather than a requirement. Here is how some of the students reacted.
It would seem the indoctrination of this group of students was successful. A very civilized protest, wouldn't you say?
One last thing: anything that called for or endorsed the overthrow of the government was once called Sedition. Under Federal law, anyone who "knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District, or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government, . . . shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years or both . . ." (U.S. CODE, TITLE 18)
The Secret Service recently pulled a thirteen year old boy out of class who posted his concerns for the safety of the President on his Facebook page after Usama bin Laden's death and questioned him like some kind of terrorist threat (SOURCE). Yet, things like the seditious so-called "ethnic studies" can be taught to our children with taxpayer dollars. Do you think the Secret Service will even question anyone connected with this? Don't hold your breath.
