The standard mis-truths and outright lies from the KC Board’s website:
Condemning violence and hate speech, expressing support for Muslim students and those perceived as Muslims
Adopted by the Kansas City Public Schools Board of Education September 28, 2016
WHEREAS the United States was founded by immigrants, many fleeing religious persecution, who enshrined freedom of religion as one of our nation’s fundamental legal and ethical principles; and
WHEREAS there are more than 3 million Muslims living in the United States today, and
approximately 30,000 living in the Greater Kansas City area, making invaluable contributions to our economy, our social and political life, and our culture; and
WHEREAS discrimination on the basis of religion, and against Muslims and those perceived as Muslims in particular, is deeply embedded within our country’s long history of racism and xenophobia; and
WHEREAS there has been an unprecedented backlash since the September 11th attacks in the form of hate crimes and employment discrimination toward Arab and Muslim Americans and those perceived as Muslims; and
WHEREAS Muslims, Muslim Americans, and those perceived as Muslims, are frequently the targets of abusive and discriminatory police practices sanctioned by the state including surveillance in their neighbor hoods and places of worship; and
WHEREAS the recent escalation of hateful rhetoric against Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants, and people of color is especially harmful to children, as it has a negative impact on their psychological well-being, the health of their peer relationships, and their ability to thrive in school; and
WHEREAS Muslim students, and those perceived as Muslims, across the country have reported instances of bullying and disproportionate school discipline on account of their religion and/or race; and
WHEREAS approximately 653 Kansas City Public Schools’ families have designated Somali, Arabic, and other Muslim languages being spoken in their homes; and
WHEREAS Muslim students in the Kansas City Public school district contribute in numerous ways to the vitality of the learning environment, and
their parents form an integral part of their school communities; and
WHEREAS providing a safe school environment that ensures both the physical and emotional safety of students and staff creates the conditions necessary to foster academic achievement; and
WHEREAS it is the responsibility of schools to educate students about the social, cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States, to promote awareness of a wide range of religious and cultural traditions, and to teach students to think critically about their own biases; and
WHEREAS we, as the leaders of the Kansas City Public Schools have a responsibility to ensure that all of our students are supported in their academic and personal development:
Now therefore be it resolved, that the Kansas City Public Schools
(1) Condemns all hateful speech and violent action directed at Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants and people of color;
(2) Commits to fostering a school environment that promotes respect for and curiosity about all religions and cultures, affirms the equal humanity of all members of the community, and rejects all forms of bullying and discrimination;
(3) Commits to instituting school policies and setting an educational curriculum that reflects the values expressed in this resolution via training of staff and teachers, the inclusion of diverse resources to supplement in-class curricula, and the creation of safe spaces for students to address school-based bullying.
Here’s some reality the resolution ignores…since 9/11 and during September 2016:
Here’s a long and growing list of Islamic Terror on American Soil…but only attacks in which fatalities occurred. Will students in Kansas City learn about this?
And more of the usual suspects that seem to have infiltrated the Kansas City board of education and worked in the sharia resolution:
We will double check, but the language reads closely to the New York City effort to submit non-Muslims to sharia law as well.
Essentially, what this resolution and others like it says is that no matter how many terrorist acts Muslims commit in the name of Islam and to spread sharia law, no matter how many women are raped by Muslims or killed while Muslims scream ‘allah akbar’, no matter how many women die in so-called ‘honor killings’, no matter how many non-Muslims are beheaded by Muslims – you must remain SILENT. You are no longer permitted to question or criticize or suggest that Islam is anything but perfect. If you do, you will face not only the wrath of blood thirsty Muslims and their co-religionist legal jihadists, but the U.S. government and local law enforcement who will hunt you down and arrest you.
This resolution goes further and includes pretty much anyone who is not a white American.
PS: To understand how KC got to this point of submission, see what’s happened over the last eight years by reviewing Creeping Sharia posts on Kansas City here. And remember, Hamas was meeting in Kansas City’s Bartle Hall calling for bloodshed long before this blog existed.
