"The Texas State Board of Education will soon finalize the language that publishers use to align their textbooks to current "acceptable standards." They are receiving pressure and outrageous demands from activists who want to literally re-write American history!
The Board is considering many radical changes to the curriculum, even stripping "Christmas Day" from the textbooks and including a Hindu holiday called "Diwali"! And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Other changes being considered:
- Replacing the term "American" with "Global Citizen."
- Stating that students need to be shaped "for responsible citizenship in a global society."
- Removing all references to Daniel Boone, General George Patton, Nathan Hale, and Columbus Day.
- Replacing "expansionism and free enterprise" with "imperialism and capitalism."
If that's not alarming enough, it gets worse! Because Texas is the nation's largest purchaser of textbooks, many other school systems nationally use these same books.
The decision of eight people could affect a generation of tens of millions of our nation's school children!
That's why we MUST "Take Back America" in 2010
If we allow these socialists to indoctrinate America's upcoming generations by tearing down the cultural foundations of our nation, our heritage and our freedom will be lost forever!
In order to take back our nation, we must stop any and all efforts to revise our history and brainwash our children! That's why I want to send the strongest message possible to the liberal elites that we will NOT allow them to destroy our heritage.
But I need your help.
Join tens of thousands of concerned Americans who have already signed the "Take Back America 2010" petition:
Liberty Counsel will do everything in our power to stop anti-faith, anti-American revisionists from re-writing our children's textbooks. But I need you to stand with
me right now to "Take Back America."
On the Huckabee show, I quoted the Declaration of Independence:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
I am deeply thankful for the Founding Fathers who crafted these documents and for the millions who have fought for our liberties and freedom over the years. I will
not allow a handful of people to rewrite the past in order to reduce our nation to being a small part of some ill-conceived global society!
Please help me by signing our "Take Back America 2010" petition.
Thank you and God bless America!"
