When and How Will it End?

This is America. We are an English speaking nation. We have distinct and traditional American cultural values. We have some Americans in our population who have difficulty speaking a coherent sentence. We have many who cannot construct a complete and proper sentence.

Yet we find the time and the money to educate youth in Arabic and Arabic culture. Mind you this is a Federal Grant program and limited to only five select school districts. At least for now. At a cost of 1.3 millions dollars students on these select district will be required,  you heard {read} right, required as mandatory part of their curriculum to learn Arabic.

This is a blatant abuse of taxpayer money, and it is indicative of the future course our nation has embarked upon under the fuzzy, misguided, and incredibly deceitful anti leadership of the current occupant of the Peoples House and Impostor in Chief.

Excepts from CBSDFW on this breaking story.
Some Students at Mansfield ISD schools could soon be learning Arabic as a required language. The school district wants students at select schools to take Arabic language and culture classes as part of a federally funded grant.


The Foreign Language Assistance Program (FLAP) grant was awarded to Mansfield ISD last summer by the U.S. Department of Education.


As part of the five-year $1.3 million grant, Arabic classes would be mandatory at Cross Timbers Intermediate School and Kenneth Davis Elementary School. The program would also be optional for students at T. A. Howard Middle School and Summit High School.


Parents at Cross Timbers say they were caught off-guard by the program, and were surprised the district only told them about it in a meeting Monday night between parents and Mansfield ISD Superintendent Bob Morrison.


The DOE has identified Arabic as a ‘language of the future.’ But parent Joseph Balson was frustrated by the past. “Why are we just now finding out about it?” asked Balson. “It’s them (Mansfield ISD) applying for the grant, getting it approved and them now saying they’ll go back and change it only when they were caught trying to implement this plan without parents knowing about it.”

The parents not informed until after the fact. Definite Obama administration tactics. The President that has claimed he would have transparency has proven yet again secrecy in the pursuit of his ends is his administration's modus operandi. This, and I will call it "pilot program" is very likely to grow legs and spread like the pox.

In addition to mandatory Arabic the program also teaches Arabic cultural issues.
Mansfield ISD says in addition to language, the grant provides culture, government, art, traditions and history as part of the curriculum.


Some parents had concerns over religion. “The school doesn’t teach Christianity, so I don’t want them teaching Islam,”.....

Watch the VIDEO:



When will the assault by the current administration end? The federal government, or any arm of it, has the right to force feed any language or cultural traditions down the throats of students other than English and American traditions.
