Texas Schools Now Teaching Boston Tea Party Was Act Of Terrorism….And More
Does anyone remember the video that began to circulate where a FEMA representative told local police in Oklahoma that the founding fathers and Christians were terrorists? If you thought that was the end of such statements, let me awaken you to the reality that public schools are teaching something very similar to that in the U.S. occupied State of Texas. They are teaching students, contrary to their parents wishes, that the Boston Tea Party was an act of terrorism and that those who did it were terrorists.
Before we go further, let me state clearly that I fully understand the sentiments of those who engaged the Boston Tea Party. I understand their desire to make a statement. It wasn’t right for them to take what belonged to someone else and destroy it, but I did get the sentiment and would never call it terrorism. No one was killed. No one was threatened. It was a statement that they were not going to be taxed by England without being represented.
This December 16 will mark the 239th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party. The protest has been historically recognized as the event that sparked the Revolutionary War. However, this is how it is being taught via the Texas public school system’s World History/ Social Studies lesson plan (Unit 12: Lesson: 07:

A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port. 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.
In fact, much of the curriculum seems to suggest that anyone who opposes or does not agree with what government is doing is somehow labeled a “terrorist.”
After the above story is read, teachers are then instructed on how to manipulate the students thinking. From the lesson plan:
There can be no doubt that these lessons are geared to tying the historical Boston Tea Party with terrorism and that concept then tied to the current Tea Party movement and thus to terrorism.
The company producing the lessons is CSCOPE. So just who is CSCOPE? They are owned by Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative (TESCCC). According to CSCOPE’s website:
CSCOPE is the source for an all-in-one approach to a quality curriculum system. CSCOPE is a comprehensive, customizable, user-friendly curriculum management system built on the most current research-based practices in the field.
CSCOPE has several sample resources and samples that you can view here.
A reader of FreedomOutpost sent me information on the curriculum and also spoke with me via telephone. She informed me that many parents were denied access to the curriculum by teachers and superintendents. This is in direct violation of Texas State Law. From the Texas Constitution:
Sec. 26.006. ACCESS TO TEACHING MATERIALS.(a) A parent is entitled to:
(1) review all teaching materials, instructional materials, and other teaching aids used in the classroom of the parent’s child;
However, it doesn’t end there. CSCOPE also imposes a “gag order” on teachers using the site, which I have been informed they were made to sign a copy without legal counsel.
In addition to the above, note the counter cultural anti-Christian lesson offered by CSCOPE via the CSCOPE review website:
CSCOPE Lesson: Christianity is a Cult
Also, the curriculum seems to be not only anti-Christian, but also pro-Islam as demonstrated in this Power Point presentation.
There is also Population Dynamics, along with Population Demography curriculum that is taught to the students. While population dynamics and even demography may be helpful to some, the question that should arise is,“Why is this being taught in public school?” The answer comes from a very presumptive source, the United Nations.

I can't believe these fine upstanding citizens have not commented on this thread. I,for one, am sick to death of this liberal trash rewriting history to suit their purpose.

GBA: Both you & I know one thing for sure: Most of these people you speak of are quite short sighted. Only today is important to them, with little concern for the long term.

Are you guys going to stage a rally in Bellefontaine Square on December 16th to cellibate the 239th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party?

It's from the Blaze so you you know it must be true. I guess whatever Glenn Beck tells you you believe.

From what I found through a little bit of research and not blind acceptance of anything Glenn Beck says is this. It was presented as this mock news report as if it was being presented in today's media.

News report: New 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. 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.

The lesson plan then asks teachers to ask students if the event in the news report meets the definition of a terrorist attack, and whether the act is "from a previous time in our history."

Only Glenn Beck could turn this into a conspiracy and only stupid old paranoid fools would believe it

Only if you're a complete idiot.

The excerpt isn't a historical summary by the book writers, it's a fake "News Report" written by a British loyalist. Students would learn about the use of propaganda or media bias or differing viewpoints of historical conflicts.

"What side your on?" Are you saying you are not "standing firm" on our nation's side?
