Indiana’s Muslim Congressman Says US Schools Should Use Koran as ‘Foundation’ Like Madrassas Do
-By Warner Todd Huston
Democrat Congressman Andre Carson of Indiana has a new plan for America’s schools. They should be retooled using the Islamic Madrassa as a model and their “foundation” should be the Muslim holy book the Koran.
Rep. Carson made these suggestions at the annual convention of the Islamic Circle of North America held in Hartford, Connecticut on May 26. This year’s convention theme seems to have been “Our Family, Our Home & Our Destiny” and Carson took this concept to heart in his plan to remake American schools into a nation of Madrassas.
Can anyone imagine the outcry from the left and the Old Media both if a Republican Congressman had made the suggestion that our grade schools and high schools should be remade into Bible-pushing centers?
You may remember Andre Carson as the Congressman that suggested that all Tea Partiers would love to see black people “hanging on a tree.”
Carson also claimed that he was called the “N” word by Tea Partiers “fifteen times” as he walked to Congress during those tumultuous days in May of 2010. The Old Media lapped this claim up and presented it as fact despite that there was never any proof the incident ever occurred.
