Teachers’ Union Decries FBI’s ‘Radical Ideologies’ Website as Anti-Muslim

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 15:10
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A batch of teacher’s unions and affiliated organizations penned a letter to FBI director James Comey decrying the agency’s establishment of a website aimed at fighting terrorism because – get this – the content could be seen as anti-Muslim.

The Daily Caller reported the bizarre story:

“A teacher’s union and associated groups are coming out against the FBI campaign to counter radical ideology, saying that it could lead to the singling out of Muslims.

“Various groups penned a letter to FBI Director James Comey, declaring that the website made them feel “deeply troubled,” reports The Wall Street Journal.

“The website, called “Don’t Be A Puppet,” was advertised for use in schools to teach younger people how to avoid being tempted by radical extremist thought. The website urges students to divulge any suspicious behavior they see to teachers and law enforcement.

“The groups, which encompass the American Association of School Administrators and American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, wrote that they believed the website would cause people to view Muslims and Middle Eastern students in a negative light.”

Exactly what type of information would these teachers’ groups prefer on the website – content about Jewish jihadists? Or, only those terror cells untied to Muslims and the Middle East? Or, maybe even terrorists who twist the Christian faith and biblical principles to commit acts of atrocity and violence, to include the lopping off of heads of resisters?

It’s ridiculous.

But the Daily Caller continues:

“The website, introduced last year, functions as a game to teach teenagers how to identify and avoid ‘violent extremists.’

“‘The site emphasizes that by blindly accepting radical ideologies, teens are essentially becoming the ‘puppets’ of violent extremists who simply want them to carry out their destructive mission—which often includes targeting or killing innocent people,’ the FBI website explains.

You mean, the site targets those vulnerable teens that feel disenfranchised from Western societies, their families, their futures – the very ones that ISIS tries to recruit on social media – and tries to tell them: Don’t be a pawn, there’s another way?

How terrible. Good thing the teachers’ unions are on the alert.

The Daily Caller explains more:

“Those who disagree with the website took issue with what the website calls warning signs of potential extremist actions. Some of the warning signs include ‘talking about traveling to places that sound suspicious’ and ‘using code words or unusual language.’

“‘We know we need to be hyper-vigilant. But there’s a difference between being hyper-vigilant and engaging in racial profiling. This program, while probably well intended, shouldn’t go forward,’ the American Federation of Teachers union President Randi Weingarten declared.”

This is exactly the mindset and logic that’s allowing ISIS to spread – exactly the mindset and logic why America and the West is struggling in the war on terror. While terrorists are focused on their jihad mission, with little regard for human lives, Americans and liberal leftists like these teachers’ unions are busy fighting a paper war, pretending the world is fair, humans are inherently good and terrorists are simply misguided youth who need a good talkin’ to in order to live peaceably with others.

How much longer are sane Americans supposed to pretend terrorism isn’t a tool of Islam, and Islam the religion of Muslims?

    Not trying to insult anyone….but….my mother and grandmother always told me school teachers are dumber than dirt. Those teachers are nothing more than a herd of dead heads just as children, obeying whatever they are told from those in authority.

    I am 70 years old now, a high IQ, and realize more now than ever that my mother and grandmother were correct. BTW, I have taught my children and grandchildren the very same thing. You must ask who, what, which, where, when, why about everything!!!!

    Does NOT matter how many degrees you have, without common horse sense, individualism, a voice, am opinion, GOD, truth, integrity, honesty, you are no better than the liberal mindset. Just do a recall on your own school days….just how much of what you were taught is truth or jewish mind control. Yes the basic principles are necessary but from there on much is fabricated and too many teachers actually accept the BS and believe it. Of course there will be those silent only for job security. So to them your job is more important than teaching truth to these kids. Islam is no where near any truth but a rancid hatred. To these moronic teachers…..why on earth aren’t you also anti-muslim. Shame on you to damage the minds of children. In fact disgracefully deplorable.

    Racial profiling is good. Israel does it with EVERY person traveling to Israel…..EVERY person. It works and there is nothing racist about it. Knowing the characters of certain cultures is very important. And while I am spouting I will add I am sick to death of these d#% schools teaching lies about the white race. The schools are the biggest racist on earth next to liberals themselves. Why do blacks ALL OF A SUDDEN IN THE LAST TEN YEARS OR SO GET SPECIAL TREATMENT when it is a fact their IQs are lower than whites!!! The police force has even lowered their standards in order to hire them and we all see what is happening nationwide with police criminality….gee I wonder why!!!!! I want fairness for all but muslims will never belong and blacks will never forgive what slave owners did to them. Gives no one the right to ruin the hard working white race. Once whites are gone your world will be nothing but a sea of blood.

    I wish not to offend but open eyes….God Bless everyone.
