Outrageous Leftist Propaganda Buried In Elementary Math Lessons

By now, it is common knowledge among millions of parents that the public school system has been overtaken by leftist ideologues. Federal curriculum guidelines offer a bounty of highly partisan – and often completely false – leftist propaganda, while conservative thought is roundly ridiculed in government-approved texts.

While these trends are abundantly obvious in certain subjects, some parents might believe empirical disciplines like mathematics would be a safe haven from such inappropriate ideology. Tragically, the left’s ever-widening grasp on the next generation is firmly implanted across the educational spectrum.

As one recent report revealed, the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics approved a new curriculum offering woefully misleading information disparaging conservatism – all under the guise of teaching basic math skills.

The council is expected to discuss the curriculum during an upcoming conference, during which “social justice” will be one of the stated goals of mathematics education.

Included in the resources for this despicable program is a website recommended for supplemental information related to one lesson in particular. Students asked to compare previous American presidents are directed to the site, which, in addition to labeling Abraham Lincoln a “liberal,” levies unconscionable allegations against conservative hero Ronald Reagan.

According to the blatant mischaracterization presented as fact by teachers, Reagan’s brilliant economic policy was discredited in 1982 “as the economy declined into the worst recession in 40 years.”

The narrative continues to suggest that “the president’s popularity slipped and support for supply-side economics faded.”

Apparently convinced students would not research the information further, the site apparently determined the subsequent economic boom made possible by Reagan’s policies was unworthy of any mention. A recession one year after his inauguration is described as completely Reagan’s fault, while the modern left continues to blame George W. Bush for Barack Obama’s disastrous policies five years into his presidency.

Unfortunately, the profound level of propaganda does not stop there. Another resource blatantly misrepresents the reason our founders established the Electoral College.

Instead of presenting the system as a safeguard against mob rule, the peripheral data suggests that a number of constitutional “authors did not trust the ability of the common voter to make the ‘right’ decision,” alleging they were only interested in “lessening the power of the popular vote.”

Curricula such as this are becoming more and more common in the public school system. It is obvious the leftist control institution is no longer interested in teaching the basic skills students will need upon graduation, but in assuring they will remain ignorant to America’s freedom, thus unable to recognize when it is being taken away.

    One of the results of people like bill ayres involvement in "publik eddykashun".

    What's the website? I want to see this garbage.
    Sources, man, Sources.

    Lincoln was the first Republican President, but he was very liberal. What do Harry Truman, Robert Byrd, Hugo Black, Theodore G. Bilbo, Rice W. Means, Bibb Graves, Edward L. Jackson, Clarence Morley, Clifford Walker, George Gordon, John Clinton Porter, Warren G. Harding, David Duke, ALL have in common? They were all KKK members in US politics AND they were all Liberals! Lincoln is NOT a liberal! Reagan was discredited in 1982 “as the economy declined into the worst recession in 40 years.” Carter's misery index of >22%, with inflation of >14% and unemployment >8%! Reagan’s popularity slipped and support for supply-side economics faded?
    Under Reagan:
    +17 million jobs
    GDP growth increased from -0.3%-4%
    Top marginal rates decreased from 70% to 28%
    Average middle class income increased by 4,000
    Unemployment decreased from 10.8% to 5.4%,it's lowest rate in 14 years
    Inflation decreased from 11% to 4%
    Interest rates decreased from 21% to 12%
    Under obama: They won’t tell us what the actual number are for the above stats!
    BLS puts actual newly created jobs at 3 million–now hovering at about a million less than when the slump began in ’07. And how many of those jobs are part-time or low wage with no medical benefits?
    Washington, D.C. should not be the origin of every child’s education. In a forced defense of the liberal position, they said “the children belong to all of us”; therefore, they should all receive the same cookie-cutter education (home school now!). Of course, the obvious benefit for the radial partisans who support Common Core is that all children will be subjected to the blatant leftist bias included in these educational standards.

    extrapolating with 0 rate gain: FY13: $81.9B, FY14: $86.4B
    The DOE should be replaced with home/neighborhood schooling saving $43B and making education better and not liberal biased! People will want to move to the better educated areas, this is better than vouchers!
    The IRS should be replaced by a simple form saving over $13B and making tax collection easier and not liberal biased!

      MSL after a while don't you get tired of explaining impeachment and how bad the half jigaboo is. February is black history month why hasn't anyone explained Obutthole and how he is bringing down Amrica. You hear only about the good blacks not the bums.

      • Crazy - Sane person says:

        Edward, your getting on my nerves, everyone else is cool except you and MLC

      • MuslimLuvChrist says:

        Do you know why they picked February? Not much black history to fill only 28 days!

        • Crazy - Sane person says:

          And now you’re just being a dumb Equus africanus asinus.

          • Crazy - Sane person says:

            I'm sorry I said that. I was wrong. I now know I have been worshiping the obamas. How could I be so ignorant?
            I bought their lies hook, line and sinker.
            I was trying to be a troll but it looks like I'm not good at it. Apparently I just don't have the intelligence for it.
            I will slink away back to my hole now. I now see that obama is a muslim bent on destruction of America.

        • Edwardkoziol says:

          Never thought of it that way but your right.I wonder if that nitwit Insane knows the reason.

          • Crazy - Sane person says:

            No Ed. I don't know much of anything. I'm an idiot that was worshiping the obamas.
            You have opened my eyes and you were right.
            They are nothing but a bunch of porch monkeys that need to be sent back.
            How could I be so ignorant.
            Thank you Ed. You have saved me.

    • Seeks_the_truth says:

      Wrong MLC. Lincoln was not a liberal or even thought as a liberal. That is the newest propaganda. Trying to hijack Lincoln and Reagan as 'liberals'.
      If you look at the facts, Lincoln was nothing even close to being a liberal.

  5. Crazy - Sane person says:

    How am I a coward?

    Simpleton

    • Crazy - Sane person says:

      Wait! I AM a coward!

      I'm a COWARD, that is a simpleton, that used to worship the obamas. I have now woken up.
      I'm sorry all whom I may have offended with my defense of obama and his cow, moochelle.

  6. You lost me on this post. How is this information embedded in the mathematics lessons? Not that I am a fan of Common Core but I don't see the logic here of how it's done. Anyone care to enlighten me?

  7. Crazy-Sane person says:

    Oh, that’s REAL mature……. copying my user name and and making false comments…..

    That deserves a report.
