Hold on to your hats, folks! Blissfully stupid Tea Party Queen and washed-up Saturday Night Live “star” Victoria “There’s a Communist in the White House” Jackson has once again presented us with a barrage of “what the f#$%” in a February 19 column on her blog entitled “Sex and Lies in Current TN School Textbooks.”
Recently Jackson announced that she was running for office, delighting pretty much everyone who enjoys a good circus clown act — most notably, “Doktor Zoom” over at Wonkette who offered support for Jackson’s District 2 run, saying, “V-Jack, honey, we are behind you 3000 percent. And in your world, that’s a real number.”
A group called Textbook Advocates has been reviewing Tennessee’s schoolbooks for signs of liberal scumbaggery, and boy do they find a lot! As Jackson points out, in August 2013 alone the “volunteers” reviewed 72 books on the state textbook list. Once they figured out how to open them, they declared just 39% of them “acceptable” for Tennessee classrooms. Twelve percent need “major revisions” to “meet acceptable standards” and many more need minor fixes, according to Jackson’s ramblings.
The “volunteers” concluded that “There is a mind-numbing degree of indoctrination (def: teach a person or group to accept a set of beliefs uncritically) and (inappropriate sexual references/diagrams) found in the proposed textbooks.”
A “concerned teacher” who, consequently, is running for school board shared some “upsetting” photographs of a 4th grade sex education book called “It’s Perfectly Normal!” According to Jackson, parents are unaware of the book’s existence. She says that the teacher, Candy Emerson, is running for a Williamson County Schoolboard “in an attempt to remove these books and Common core from schools,” but you guessed that already.
Jackson shared some terrifying shots of the book, which include condom use (because safe sex is evil), naked people (because it’s a health book), a section explaining different sexual orientations (because two people being in love is icky), a lack of in-depth coverage of adoption in the section labeled “abortion,” an explanation of what different sex organs look like (because it’s a health book), an age-appropriate explanation of masturbation (because it’s a health book), and a short excerpt from erotic literature presented entirely out of context.
Jackson and friends have all the outrage covered! Just look at some of their other complaints!
[box type=”shadow”]According to “American Government and Politics Today” Houghton, Miffli, Harcourt, 9-12, “…African Americans…feel a sense of injustice…and this feeling is often not apparent to, or appreciated by, the majority of white America.”
What?! Uh, that sounds racist against white people…
According to the above textbook, “The president addressed racial profiling in ways no previous president could when one of the nation’s pre-eminent scholars was arrested…in his own home…
Truth: Police were doing their job protecting a home that appeared to be in the process of a burglary. President Obama said on National TV, “the police acted stupidly.”[/box]
Or how about this doozie:
[box type=”shadow”]According to “Psychology in Everday Life” Bedford, Freeman and Worth, “Under the guise of preventing voter fraud, a number of states have adopted laws likely to suppress the vote. Nine states now require government issued photo identification.”
Truth: That first sentence reveals the author’s bias. Fact: An illegal vote cancels your vote. That equals the disenfranchisement of the legal voter. A photo ID is required to board a plane, cash checks, rent anything, obtain a library card, join the YMCA, etc.[/box]
Jackson further complains that a history book that focuses on world history and geography in early civilization through the Renaissance didn’t mention Christianity or Jesus more than it did Islam.
Most of all, she feels that the evil liberal schoolbooks are trying to demonize conservatives by telling the truth:
