Absolutely remarkable... and in Texas to boot!  As I have said for years, pretty soon anyone that disagrees with Washington D.C., Federal Reserve policies and rule by TBTF Wall Street criminal banks will be labeled a “terrorist.”  That is where all this is headed.

From CBS Houston:

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – The most historical instance of protesting against taxation without representation is now being taught in Texas schools as a terrorist act.


As recently as January of this year, the Texas Education Service Center Curriculum Collaborative included a lesson plan that depicted the Boston Tea Party, an event that helped ignite the American Revolution, as an act of terrorism.


“A local militia, believed to be a terrorist organization, attacked the property of private citizens today at our nation’s busiest port,” wrote the teachers in charge of organizing the curriculum about the Boston Tea Party. “Although no one was injured in the attack, a large quantity of merchandise, considered to be valuable to its owners and loathsome to the perpetrators, was destroyed. The terrorists, dressed in disguise and apparently intoxicated, were able to escape into the night with the help of local citizens who harbor these fugitives and conceal their identities from the authorities.

1984 has arrived folks.

Anyone who fails to love Big Government is ipso facto a terrorist.  That is all that you need to know from here on out.

Get on your knees and lick their boots and be glad of it as your spittle turns brown.  Then they may deign to smile at you.

War is Peace.  Inflation is deflation.  Greed is good.  Texas is a bastion of academic excellence.  I won't cum in your mailbox.  And I will respect myself in the morning.

Reuters got flagged with an Ignoble Award in 2003 for not using the term terrorist unless it was in closed quotes.  Why?  Because they stated one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

Reuters was right then and they're right now.

Did you get lost on your way to a more suitable site for your mental capabilities?

I know you just had to get that out, but move on.  Go read a book, or something.

It was cheaper tea from the East India Company undercutting Boston merchants......... the whole American War of Independence was funded by France as part of its superpower rivalry with the British Empire in a series of wars across the globe which bankrupted France and caused the French Revolution. A bit like the USSR funding Cubans to wage war in Angola and Mozambique in the 1970s and then war  in Afghanistan and going bust in the process.  French weapons and generals, Dutch and Spanish ships - all part of the "first World War" in the 18th Century.

Texas is right to teach facts rather than we'll hear that the Boston "Massacre" wasn't My Lai at all.......

That night, Hewes dressed as an Indian, blackening his face with coal dust, and joined crowds of other men in hacking apart the chests of tea and throwing them into the harbor.

a long tradition of intentionally pointing the finger of blame at others, it would seem.

I live in Texas, and right now King george has a higher approval rating than the Washington DC puppets, over here  in the free state of Texas.

it is no surprise that texans came to this belief - the state voted murderer george bush governor so of course it thinks that anything to do with freedom is terrorism. texas is a very scary state to be avoided like the plague.
