You know all those Chuck Norris jokes? Where he’s so powerful he does unbelievable things? Well, Chuck Norris is unbelievable, alright:
[J]ust this past week, some of our state’s educational administrators joined the feds in seeking to mandate Arabic classes for Texas children. No joke!
He’s right, it’s not a joke. It is, in fact, completely untrue.
The district had originally planned to integrate Arabic cultural studies into the curriculum of two elementary schools and offer Arabic language as an elective in middle school and high school.
Thanks to some mouth-breathing Texas parents, they put the kibosh to this toot sweet. There’s no effen way their kids will ever be exposed to Arabic culture in school. Then they might, you know, start having an understanding of Arabic people. Then, the next thing you know, they won’t hate all Arabs.
Can’t have that.
But there are no “mandatory Arabic classes”.
I think ole Chuck has taken one roundhouse kick to the head too many.
(Ironically, they got the money for the program from a FLAP grant — Foreign Language Assistance Program. More HERE.)
I’m just sayin’…
