The Blaze reported that a Baltimore County school is currently under fire for a lesson presentation which drew parallels between President Donald Trump’s immigration policies and the totalitarian ideologies of Nazism and Communism.
The lesson slide garnering so much outrage shows depicts Trump with a caption that reads, “Wants to round up a group of people and build a giant wall.” Beneath the Trump image and caption are two images, one of a swastika that reads “been there,” and the other image was one that reads “done that.”
The slide also read, “Oh that’s why it sounds so familiar!”
According to WBFF-TV, the image was presented in class on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Parents are fuming about this content.
“The biggest problem is pushing an agenda on 16-year-olds,” one parent told WBFF. “My understanding is that was just put up and it was left there for everyone to see the whole day.”
Republican State Representative Kathy Szeliga also found about this controversial lesson. She commented on Facebook, “Educational malfeasance of the highest degree. What is going on in our the Balt Co Public Schools????”
Baltimore County councilman Wade Kach said to WBFF, “To even imply that our president is in any way a Nazi or a communist is outrageous. Is this curriculum for AP? Is it a purchased curriculum? Is it one that our school system wrote? Where is it coming from? I just think that it’s irresponsible to post anything like this in a classroom.”
In a statement, Baltimore County schools broke the silence:
This slide was used as part of a lesson in an AP History course. The topics being discussed included World Wars and the attempts by some leaders to limit, or prevent migration, into certain countries. In isolation and out of context with the lesson, the image could be misunderstood. In our Advanced Placement (AP) classes, which are college level courses, we expect and encourage analysis and discussion around historical and current events even if they are considered controversial. This lesson was not intended to make a political statement. If a student has concerns when discussing a controversial issue, schools have the tools to address the concern and support the student.
However, it has yet to be determined who has created the slide. According to the WBFF report, the teacher did not create the slide. The Baltimore Sun also chimed in and said the school system did not make this slide.
The College Board, which is in charge of the AP program, does not set the curriculum for teachers.
Regardless of who made the slide, this incident just goes to show how politically biased public education has become. As the Left’s control over education grows stronger, conservatives will need to consider alternative education arrangements.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
