You know what makes the incredibly aptly named Dianne Lynn Savage really mad? You know what just peaks her rage meter? MUSLIMS! They EXIST! And even worse, they don’t even have the sense to be CHRISTIAN! They’ve got a guy who existed, they’ve got cities that are there, a history that happened, buildings what got built and books what got written. How DARE they! And worse yet…worst of all…we God-fearing Christamericans have to at some point acknowledge all of this! But, hey, we don’t want you to get the idea that Diane is a raging Islamophobe. Clearly, she’s just a good, old-fashioned, average American. As you can tell from her Facebook cover photo.
And average-American Diane is pissed — royally pissed, as Key & Peele would put it. Recently, Diane got hold of a workbook from a Farmville, North Carolina highschool. Yes, there really is a Farmville. The booklet is a state-approved Common Core (communist) issue designed to help students meet the standards for English Language Arts.
The booklet was distributed in a course that the school says was “designed to accompany the world literature text, which emphasizes culture in literature.” The class for which it was intended was Senior English, and the specific part of that course emphasized exploration of world cultures, and how vocabulary words might be used within them.
Diane barely makes it through reading examples from the text; she has to pause frequently to let her holy rage subside. That said, we prent one sheet from the text with due warning: consult a physician to assess your risk of hyperventilation before proceeding.
As you can see, the worksheet stays mainly to talking about Islam and Mohammed in the historical context. It speaks of him and the religion as important social catalysts, and goes into a bit of detail about the holidays and customs of roughly one-quarter of the Earth’s population. But, since that quarter clearly isn’t Christamerican…behold the righteous rage monster that is Diane Savage.
The school responded to Diane’s video, which as of right now has about 40,000 shares on Facebook. And that makes her famous. But the school isn’t entirely impressed with internet-fame-based ontological arguments.
“Concerns expressed to us were related to the religious nature of sentences providing vocabulary words in context. After an investigation, we discovered that the vocabulary lesson was taken directly from a state-adopted supplemental workbook published by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston. This workbook includes a series of weekly vocabulary lessons, and the lessons are used to teach vocabulary in context. Lessons are divided into a trio of topics including expression, civilization, and the environment. This particular lesson was pulled from the civilization section of the workbook.
Our school system understands all concerns related to proselytizing, and there is no place for it in our instruction. However, this particular lesson was one of many the students in the class have had and will have that expose them to the various religions and how they shape cultures throughout the world.”
Wait, so, what you’re saying is…
You’re educating our children on THINGS THEY MIGHT NOT KNOW, and about PEOPLE THEY HAVEN’T MET?!?
Heretics! Communists! MUSLIMS!
Listen, you Commie bastards…if the people of Amurrica wanted our kids to know things we didn’t already know, we wouldn’t be homeschooling them. The whole point of education is to indoctrinate the next generation with things that the previous generation already knows, so they’re prepared to go out into the world and do exactly the same things their parents did.
Everybody KNOWS that!
Including, as we can see, including gun, knife, Bible, flage and rage enthusiast, Diane Savage.
