Texas School Teacher Told Students To Call 9/11 Hijackers "Freedom Fighters"

G. K. Chesterton said, "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."

The same school responsible for this:


...has a teacher telling students to call the 9/11 hijackers "freedom fighters."

Her explanation was that people who sacrifice their lives for a Holy War are "freedom fighters."

I would have to point out the difference - a "freedom fighter" sacrifices his life to protect others. A terrorist sacrifices his life to destroy others. It is not a difficult concept.

In the teacher's defense, some students claim she seemed to be very uncomfortable with the new curriculum. So, the school board is more to blame.

From FNC:

An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.

Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”

3 Dear class: Tomorrow we'll discuss how a woman's testimony is worth only half as much as a man's testimony; why it is not only permissible to beat one's wife, it is encouraged; and what the laws of Jizya are about.

4 Also class, don't forget the follow-up lessons: If you're a muslim man, why you can rape with impunity, or little punishment. Why if you're a women, and get raped, you're about to die.

7 Needs fired. No final pay, no benefits, no retirement, and definitely no re-hire. This crap has to stop. And not just the teacher.

8 @Vyx Not a big fan of Perry, even though I do vote for him, but he doesn't control school boards.

9 Academia. We actually pay these people. I have a feeling many of them would do it for nothing. This crap has what to do with readying a kid for the future?

10 Leftist co-conspirators will be sent to lived in the walled in islamist sand cesspits (deported along with them).

Sun Tsu probably spoke about having your enemies destroy themselves -- leftists mixed with islamic tyranny should have a pleasing body count - too many rats in a small cage.....

11 and mentioning God gets you expelled and brings a leftist media firestorm upon the trangressors ....

I see eradication for these freedom hating leftist tyrant-wannabees in their future.

So it is written....

14 The day islamic terrorists are called freedom fighters in my house is the day satan becomes an olympic figure skater and plays pond hockey.

15 I wonder, were they taught how their female parts would be mutilated, their freedom would be NIL, that - if raped - THEY would be the one punished, they would probably be GIVEN to a man to be his wife REGARDLESS of what they desired, and how they would be treated, on the whole, WORSE that a goat? Would they see Islam differently after they watch their children trained to be suicide bombers?

I'll tell you what - let's give them the FULL Muslim experience and see how they feel about Islam afterward. Of course, they won't feel much after they've been whipped and stoned to death.
