FOIA Uncovers Taxpayer-Funded Islamic Propaganda Forced on Teachers


Reported by 

The Thomas More Law Center, a national nonprofit public interest law firm based in Ann Arbor, Michigan who discovered that taxpayer money is being used to indoctrinate teachers on Islam. The two-day course was taken by 400 Michigan teachers and not one of them challenged the lies of terrorism and Sharia Law.

The workshop was arranged by Michigan’s Novi Community Schools District and all teachers were notified that attendance was mandatory. Besides promoting Islam, the course also saw Christianity disparaged, and America bashed. All at taxpayer expense.

These workshops are becoming more common every day.

Via TMLC:

TMLC inspected dozens of internal school documents, including audio recordings of Essa’s presentation.

The information on Islam she provided to Novi teachers was riddled with falsehoods and errors of omission that were clearly meant to deceive.

Essa provided no truthful information on Sharia law and jihad, two of the most important aspects of Islam. All references to terrorism were dismissed as having nothing to do with Islam. White Christian males, she suggested, are more dangerous than Islamic radicals.

Essa is the face behind Culture Links LLC, a Michigan-based consultancy. She describes herself on the Culture Links website as an advocate of social justice who encourages children to “take pride in their many identities.”

But, as TMLC discovered from the Novi documents, the one identity Essa does not celebrate is that of patriotic Americans who believe in our nation’s exceptionalism.

And her message extends far beyond Novi.

Essa’s client list reveals she has been spreading her “trash America first” philosophy to colleges, universities, schools and professional educator associations throughout Michigan, California, Georgia, Texas, Florida and beyond. In Michigan alone her website lists nine school districts as clients – Oakland County Schools, Ann Arbor Schools, L’Anse Creuse Public Schools, Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, Roseville Community Schools, Farmington Public Schools, Dearborn Public Schools, Birmingham Public Schools and Melvindale Public Schools.

Under the banner of promoting diversity, inclusion and a multicultural approach to education, Essa sets about comparing Islam to Christianity, calling them “mostly similar.” The one big difference, she claims, is that Islam is the world’s “only purely monotheistic religion.”

Her message was clear: The Koran is superior to the Bible. But she did not address the fact that it calls for the extermination of Christian and Jews.

While quick to indict America as guilty of “cultural genocide,” Essa was silent on the 1400 years of actual genocides, also known as jihads, in which Muslims wiped out Jewish tribes on the Arabian Peninsula, and slaughtered millions of Christians throughout the Middle East, North Africa and the European Continent. Referring to Islam, Winston Churchill wrote, “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.”

Colorado Teachers Get Firearm Training, Will Be Armed in Future


Reported By Andrew West |  June 22, 2017

The argument by many is that “gun free” school zones do nothing to deter the criminally-armed from committing whatever heinous acts they wish.  After all, they are criminals who are not concerned with any sort of legal obstacle to their expressed purpose.  The lack of firearms on school campuses only serves to enhance the efficiency of their horrific schemes, as victims are forced to rely purely on the ability of first responders to arrive, assess, and arrest the assailant before the damage can be done.

One possible solution has risen above them all, in terms of common sense and efficacy:  Arming teachers.  A well-trained teacher could mean the difference between life and death in these incidents, not to mention that the deterrent effect of having this simple safeguard in place would prevent a great number of school shooters from even attempting their day of rage.

Now, as Colorado prepares to arm their own educating populace, many are heading to the gun range for specialized training.

“Over a three-day session, 17 school personnel will be taught at a Weld County range near Denver on how to become ‘armed first responders.’

“They will be taught by the ‘Faculty Administrator Safety Training and Emergency Response’ group or FASTER, for short.

“The ‘FASTER’ group was founded in response to the devastating 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut.

“They say the training won’t replace police, but it will help ‘stop school violence rapidly.’ The program also teaches medical aid.”

Colorado, of course, has a dark history of modern mass shootings, with two of the most prominent American examples occurring within the state.

  • In 1999, the modern school shooting was born in Columbine, Colorado, as two high school students planned and executed a massive takeover of their campus in which they shot and killed 13 members of the school and then themselves.  For many Americans, the Columbine Massacre, as it became known, was the first such incident of its kind, sparking a debate over how best to prevent any future similar incidents.
  • Thirteen years later, James Holmes entered a packed movie theater in Aurora, Colorado carrying several firearms, and began indiscriminately firing into a crowd of Batman fans.  This incident saw 12 killed merely 22 miles from Columbine.  Holmes was arrested at the scene without putting up a fight.

In both cases, a “good guy with a gun” would have easily been able to limit the damage done by the perpetrators.

Is This Story an Example of Things to Come?


Lesbian boss ‘fired me for being straight’

Lesbian boss ‘fired me for being straight’

A married, heterosexual gym teacher at a tony Upper West Side private school was fired because his lesbian supervisor disapproved of his “traditional family status,” the canned teacher claims in a new Manhattan lawsuit.

Gregory Kenney, 50, taught gym at the Trinity School on W. 91st St. for 16 years before he was let go in June 2012.

Kenney, who lives with his wife and three young children in LI, says he was a well-liked employee at the elite institution that counts Truman Capote, Ivanka Trump and Eric Schneiderman as alumni, until a gay athletic director named Pat Krieger took over in 2009.

Krieger allegedly forced him to coach three sports, even though his contract only required him to join two teams, according to his reverse discrimination suit.

When he complained that the extra responsibilities interfered with his family obligations Krieger allegedly told him, “We all make choices,” the suit says.

After Kenney told Krieger that he couldn’t keep working nights and weekends, she reported him to the headmaster “while a single, female teacher faced no scrutiny when she refused to coach a third season.”

Kenney claims the allegedly biased athletic director “routinely favored other single, younger females without children and discriminated against [him] because of his gender, sexual orientation, ‘traditional family status,’ and age.”

“He felt ostracized because of his family,” Kenney’s attorney, Steven Morelli told The Post in an interview.

“He had been doing this for so many years and he certainly did the job well or they would have gotten rid of him a long time ago,” Morelli added.

Kenney coached soccer, basketball and golf at Trinity, where tuition costs as much as $41,370 a year.

“On at least one occasion Kenney was dissuaded from attending social events with his peers because he was a heterosexual, married male with children, who wouldn’t fit in with [Krieger’s] ‘culture.’”

He says three other married coaches with young children were also sacked. Kenney was replaced by a gay female, according to court papers.

Kenney, who has 7-year-old twins and a 9-year-old, is still looking for a new job.

He’s seeking unspecified damages in the suit.

A spokesman for Trinity did not immediately comment.
