Communism in schools? Doesn’t end well, you know.
For years, we’ve heard about how having God in the schools is wrong and now God is out of the schools. How’s that working out? American Capitalism is bad and free-markets hurt the poor and those who work hard, provide jobs and get ahead are evil – dominate the news. How’s that working out?
Now it’s socialism, the precursor to Communism – which is what happens when they run out of other people’s money, Margaret Thatcher used to say. We had to read the book “Animal Farm” growing up, but kids in Texas are now being taught to glorify the collective that brought you “Some Animals Are More Equal Than Others”…

Sixth-grade children in many Texas public schools are being tasked with designing flags for a new socialist nation as part of the state’s curriculum, EAG News reports.
“Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag,” says a lesson plan being used as part of CSCOPE, the curriculum being used by over 70 percent of Texas school districts.
“Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?” the lesson plan asks. According to the Associated Press, witnesses told the Texas Senate Education Committee last week that the program promotes liberal values they described as “anti-Christian at best and openly socialist at worst.”
“Committee Chairman Dan Patrick, R-Houston, called it ‘a mess.’
An article at Texas CSCOPE Review was even harsher in its criticism, accusing Obama of “teaching our children how wonderful socialism is and that communism is even better.”
“CSCOPE is the prelude to having the Obama Common Core Standards in our schools. Via our Texas School Superintendents, who are studying how to implement Common Core, our state Education services centers are setting in place the perfect technology framework called CSCOPE,” Texas CSCOPE Review added.
Another post at the Review shows a graphic used in the curriculum and says that it promotes communism to young children. “On top of this,” the Review said, “no one is allowed to view the CSCOPE lessons except teachers who had to sign a gag-order not to tell anyone about the content of the lessons.”
Wade Lebay, director of state CSCOPE at the Region 13 Education Service Center in Austin, defended the program: “It’s built by teachers, designed by teachers and that’s what’s powerful about CSCOPE,” Lebay said. The AP added that Lebay was asked about complaints that some lesson plans promote pro-Islamic ideals, or “described participants of the Boston Tea Party as terrorists.”
“You know America is changing when leftists have even infiltrated Texas schools,” Kyle Olson wrote at EAG News.
Yeah, no kidding? I guess if you like your Common Core, you can keep your Common Core.. There’s a promise they’ll come through on.
These people will not stop and you know it. It’s time to release the hounds..
