The DISTURBING connection between Islam and Common Core
The federal education standards known as “Common Core” have created a flashpoint among parents across the country who resent the standardization of school curricula. Yet despite the outcry, as Politico reports, “the standards that naysayers love to call “Obamacore” have become the reality on the ground for roughly 40 million students — or about four out of every five public school kids.”
So it appears Common Core is now entrenched.
Standardization is one thing – but is there yet another deeper concern about Common Core? No doubt some readers will find this difficult to fathom, but could it be that Common Core has as one of its goals the “Islamasization” of the United States? Sound crazy? Well, you ain’t heard nothing yet.
First some background. In 2009, you might recall President Obama’s speech in Cairo (some folks dubbed his trip “the apology tour”). During this speech, Americans were reminded of the Muslim contributions to the history of our country and the Egyptian audience was told, “while America in the past has focused on oil and gas in this part of the world, we now seek a broader engagement…on education, we will expand exchange programs, and increase scholarships, like the one that brought my father to America, while encouraging more Americans to study in Muslim communities. And we will match promising Muslim students with internships in America; invest in on-line learning for teachers and children around the world; and create a new online network, so a teenager in Kansas can communicate instantly with a teenager in Cairo.”
