I love it when crackpots come from other states rather than Texas. I feel we’re overrepresented. Today’s crackpot is Florida state Rep. Charles van Zant.
Florida’s adopting a new educational curriculum called Common Core. The latest Common Core curriculum Florida adopted is in mathematics.
Van Zant completely opposes Common Core because it’s trying to “attract every one of your children to become as homosexual as they possibly can.”
Van Zant warns, “If you just go look on their website, AIR.org, you see that they’re very much in support and say on their website that they’re supportive and provide all sorts of research data and things regarding the LGBT agenda, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender agenda. I don’t believe that that has any place being introduced into Florida’s schools. I further do not believe that we have a place to make that a part of Florida’s curricula.”
If you do a search for LGBT, a number of articles appear on “gay agenda” items like protecting LGBT kids from bullying. From reading a few of them, it seems research proves that when kids aren’t bullied, they perform better in school.
But who wants that? Certainly not Rep. Van Zant. That’s turning kids as gay as possible.
Search the website for other topics like “inner city,” and you’ll find 10 times the number of articles than those on LGBT. Search for “rich kids” and you’ll also find 15 times as much. That’s because AIR, the American Institutes for Research, is looking for ways to teach all kids. Even LGBT kids.
Van Zant said he only wants things like history and civics taught. I guess he thinks there are no gay historical figures. I guess he’d ban singing “America the Beautiful,” since it was written by a lesbian. Or visiting the Statue of Liberty with its inscribed poem also by a lesbian. And civics. As long as you don’t teach about nondiscrimination laws, I guess we’re fine there. Or mention some of our state representatives. Or sheriff. Or district clerk. And if you live in Houston, just don’t ever mention you have a mayor.
Even math’s not safe. Van Zant must be imagining this as the representative gay agenda Common Core algebra question:
The last train to Fort Worth leaves Victory Station at midnight. If a gay man is walking 1.5 miles from JR.’s to the train, and he can walk four miles an hour while drunk, what time should he order his last drink, assuming he can down it in 5 minutes and already has his train ticket purchased, yet still make the train?
I only regret I never got a Florida education. Who knows what my full homosexual potential might have been?
