One of the most famous and historic events in our nation’s history, and the event that perhaps single-handedly led to American independence from the British, is now being taught to American school children as an act of terrorism. CBS Houston reports that Houston schools have reportedly been attempting to portray the Boston Tea Party as an unprovoked act of terrorism by ‘intoxicated terrorists’.
The most historical instance of protesting against taxation without representation is now being taught in Texas schools as a terrorist act. As recently as January of this year, the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative included a lesson plan that depicted the Boston Tea Party, an event that helped ignite the American Revolution, as an act of terrorism.
Amazingly, this propaganda is being fed to children not in Orange County or New Jersey, but in Texas!
1984 is no longer fiction.
As CBS Houston reports, the teacher’s curriculum attempts to portray the Boston Tea Party as an act of terrorism:
“A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port,” wrote the teachers in charge of organizing the curriculum about the Boston Tea Party. “Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities.
“It is believed that the terrorist attack was a response to the policies enacted by the occupying country’s government. Even stronger policies are anticipated by the local citizens.”
Literally unbelievable that this was allowed to be included in the curriculum of any American school, much less one in Texas. It is more than a little ironic however that this report surfaces at a time when the union is abuzz with succession and the most hatred held by the general population towards the Federal Reserve and Central Banksters in the last 100 years, thanks largely to Ron Paul’s efforts.
