    re: School's Nation of Islam handout paints Founding Fathers as racists [W:293]

    A search for Harold McCormick Elementary School of the Elizabethton Star newspaper in Tennessee showed no articles or references to the OP from May till the present. That doesn't mean it didn't happen. What it likely means is the OP is yet another Fox "News" attempt to create a tempest in a piss pot. In addition I was unable to find any news source other than Fox News reporting the story. Yes, extreme right wing, "patriot" fringe web sites printed the Fox story, but I could not find any other major or local news source corroborating the Fox story. In fact, as far as I can tell no other major or local news source questioned the the Fox story. It is a Fox troll story.

    If indeed the event did occur as reported by Fox, it is probably illegal. The Nation of Islam is a religion. Religious literature should not be handed out at or by public schools that receive federal funds. Be that as it may, the information on the pamphlet is basically correct.

    Yeah, it is weird. I found exactly zero on this until the FOX opinion piece, then it exploded, and all of the results just copy/pasted the FOX news piece. Meanwhile, in the actual town, they are more interested in a nasty school board fight over the System Superintendent and the budget.

    This kind of thing seems to happen alot lately, and is directly tied to the internet. Create a scandal.Does not have to be true, though a kernel of fact helps. Post it on the internet and let the true believers spread it. Twitter and facebook really help with this. Soon people will fact check it and point out it is a lie, but by then no one is paying attention any more. All any one will remember is the initial claim in 6 months, which can then be pointed to as "part of the pattern".

    The mother of an eight-year-old wants to know why a Tennessee school teacher gave her child a handout from the Nation of Islam that portrayed the presidents on Mount Rushmore as being racists.
    so were they? and if so how old do you want the kids to be before some one tells them?

    I see the usual collectivist America-haters have rushed in to defend this action by a teacher who shares their low opinion of this horrible racist, xenophobic, sexist, homophobic, warmongering country. But I understand their concern. How are leftists ever supposed to bring down this wretched country, if they can't even indoctrinate third-graders to believe it's barely worth lifting a finger to defend?
