Dean: The Muslims are Coming, the Muslims are Coming!


Bradlee Dean continues to be a reliable fountain of stupidity in his Worldnutdaily columns. This time he’s screaming “The Muslims are coming, the Muslims are coming!” He says, with no evidence at all, that Muslims have infiltrated our schools and are teaching kids to be jihadists.

Interestingly enough, in recent years American public schools have been indoctrinated with the Muslim religion. Studies have shown over 500 historical errors in public school textbooks, giving an Islamic slant to our youth.

As a result, our youth are subject to the following teachings and practices:

  • Learning to become a Muslim
  • Fasting for Ramadan
  • Learning the five pillars of Islam
  • Memorizing verses of the Quran
  • Adopting a Muslim name
  • Staging a Jihad (war against non-Muslims)

How did this happen? The ACLU, the American Muslim Council, Americans United for Separation of Church and State and the Clinton administration joined together to create an evironment that opened the door to Muslim teaching, while attacking anyone who speaks of the Christian religion in public schools.

Uh, right. That would explain why the ACLU filed — and won — a federal lawsuit to prevent a Muslim charter school in Minnesota from violating the Establishment Clause (in fact, the school had to close down as a result of the litigation). Because you know how much the ACLU would just love a Muslim government that put gay people to death and oppressed women.

This is also why the ACLU quickly represents Muslims while refusing to defend Christians who practice their faith … in public schools.

Uh, right. Except for the dozens of street preachers the ACLU has defended over the years. And their support of students who wear anti-gay t-shirts. And their defense of students who handed out candy canes with Bible verses on them. And of churches who want to use public parks to perform baptisms. Perhaps most ironically, their defense of the right of Christian students to wear anti-Islam t-shirts. I mean, other than dozens and dozens of other examples, he’d almost be right.

    They’re everywhere! I can’t even take a bath without 12 of them Muslims jumping in with me. They’re living in my cupboards, eating up our jam! I can see two of them peeking out of my wife’s blouse!

    I’m wondering if there is anything so crazy and stupid having to do with Muslims that they won’t say it. Students being taught to wage jihad? Who do they expect to believe that other than the most brain-dead and credulous?

  3. Mr Ed says

    And just this weekend we replaced three ministers with Imam sleeper preachers.

    Brett Mcoy @2

    Those aren’t Muslims they are small government conservatives make sure that “those Bits” are covered so we don’t have impure thoughts.

    Area man, that may be a feature, not a bug. Bruce Schneier pointed out recently that the amazing obviousness of the Nigerian email scams serves to weed out people with even a smidgen of computer smarts. This makes the pool of people who reply much richer with easy marks (as a fraction of the replies) than it would be if the original scam emails actually did seem legit. So perhaps Dean is just weeding out all but the most credulous, who are more likely to send him money.

    Not that it’s possible to send money remotely any more, what with Zinc Avenger having just won the internets.

    What’s wrong with a history or social studies test saying: List the 5 pillars of islam (1 pt each)?

    The picture WND uses for Bradlee’s articles is absolutely perfect.

    And because it wouldn’t be WND if they weren’t trying to sell something:

    Bradlee Dean’s “My War” DVD series is available at the WND Superstore today! WND’s Joseph Farah says: “If you want to see what’s wrong and right with our country, watch Bradlee Dean’s ‘My War’ DVD series. It’s full of surprises.”

    The funny thing about this blurb is that everything Farah said is likely 100% true. I guess there’s a first time for everything.

    The “adopting a muslim name” thing rang a bell. Its pretty common in foreign language classes to have the kids adopt pretend names as part of learning about the culture of the people who speak it. Pretty much all introductory foreign language classes have cultural units.

    I bet a lot of the stuff he’s complaining about is just this – cultural units in foreign language classes. Perfectly mundane. Of course you would talk about Ramadan in an Arabic (or Farsi, or Indonesian…) class. You’d be stupid not to.

    But why do American kids have to speak forrin? If English was good enough for Jesus, it’s good enough for Americans!

    eric @8:

    How many public schools are offering classes in Arabic or Farsi? Many in my states are cutting back on French and Spanish. I don’t know of any who are spending funds on any languages that are considered “exotic”, ie, non-European.

    It’s teachin’ kids bout furreners! Are Merican children only need to be learning Kristin values!

    Besides, if Dean were writing the syllabus, the answer would probably be:

    1. Kill all Christian babies.
    2. Kill all Christian babies.
    3. Kill all Christian babies.
    4. Kill all Christian babies.
    5. The Homosexual Agenda.

    As I pointed out in a comment there, to date I have never had Muslims in this country try to restrict my rights. But Christians have done so my entire life, and continue to do so, or at least try. Just for starters (not all of these affect me directly):

    • mandatory Christian prayer and Bible reading in public schools
    • handing out Bibles but not other religious materials in public schools
    • allowing Christians clubs in public schools, but not gay or atheist clubs
    • restrictions on what goods or services I can buy on Sundays
    • restrictions on birth control (I am old enough to remember when it was illegal in some states)
    • restrictions on the rights of gays and women
    • attempts to substitute science with the Bible in science classes
    • preventing non-theist groups from putting up billboards or taking out other advertising
    • trying to prevent Muslims or other minorities from building houses of worship

    I have no interest whatsoever in seeing any form of Sharia law implemented in the US, but there’s essentially no chance of that happening, while Christians are trying constantly to impose religious controls on me. Accordingly I concentrate my righteous indignation and my efforts on the real threats, not the fantasy ones.

    I guess if the details of Islam, or any other religion, were important to the main subject no problem. Otherwise, the big problem is teaching nonsense to our kids.

  13. Who Knows? says

    How many public schools are offering classes in Arabic or Farsi?

    My daughter took Arabic when she was in highschool 4 years ago. I beleive they still teach it.

  14. roggg says

    Do you think maybe he’s confusing it with muslin? There’s quite a lot of that around…maybe even in public schools.

  15. Chiroptera says

    I remember learning the Five Pillars of Islam in high school. In world history class. When we got to the part when the Islamic empire was a huge major power during the European Middle Ages and a center of culture and learning.

  16. dingojack says

    Who Knows? (#15) = I see – so you think charity (one of the ‘five pillars’) is ‘nonsense’, good to know where you’re coming from then*.
    Dingo

  17. Alverant says

    #15 That’s why I framed it in a history/social studies class, the most likely place for it to be taught as “this is what X believes”. Ideally it would be taught the same as other civilizations (including the ancient hebrews) and not as it being true.

    I could see one problem. If a different test had “Name the three parts of the christian trinity: (1 pt each)” then someone may complain about how the christian question wasn’t worth as much as the islam question. So you’d either have to scale it so the questions are worth the same or add two more things to this question so they come up equal.

    And they’re always climbing on my bird feeder and stuffing the nuts in to their adorably pouchy cheeks! Damn them and their puffy tails!

    To me, it’s like discovering a robber in my home, already deep into ransacking the place, who tells me to be wary of another robber on the other side of town who has eyes on my stuff. I focus on Christian fundies more because they’re already here, entrenched, and busy subverting my freedoms at this very moment.

  20. Ellie says

    It seems to me that Dean’s startling “news,” is a bunch of stuff cobbled together that came originally, at least in part, from a non controversy in California at least 10 years ago. It certainly sounds the same. Not new, not surprising, and (it should go without saying, considering the source) not true.

  21. busterggi says

    Of course the screaming against Muslims by fundiegenicals has increased lately. Its all that back pressure from not being able to badmouth Mormons in public now that they have nominated one of those heretics for POTUS. Hates gotta go somewhere.

  22. says

    How many public schools are offering classes in Arabic or Farsi? Many in my states are cutting back on French and Spanish. I don’t know of any who are spending funds on any languages that are considered “exotic”, ie, non-European.

    I think eric is probably right in regards to how these steaming layers of bullshit are usually based on some tiny grain of truth. It’s probably the case that Dean’s delusions are derived from some public schools somewhere that teach Arabic or Farsi (probably in a few places with large Arab or Iranian minorities), or that have world religion classes. And of course in a language class it’s perfectly normal to adopt a name from that language, and in a world religion class, you would be expected to know the 5 pillars of Islam, etc. All mundane stuff that is perfectly harmless as long as the classes are electives and there’s no kind of proselytizing going on.

    I’m not entirely sure why the Deans of the world even bother to provide some basis for their lies. If you’re going to make such preposterous claims, why not just invent everything from scratch? I think part of it is that they’re outraged that children might be exposed to Arabic or Islam even as academic pursuits, and that’s what they’re trying to stop.

  23. pacal says

    He is possibly lying and if he isn’t lying he is mouthing bullshit because he obviously doesn’t care if it is true or not. Except that it pushes peoples hot buttons.

    d cwilson @13: Are Merican children only need to be learning Kristin values!

    Does learning Kristin Values in any way, shape, or form coincide with studying the values of Kristen Bell? Because I could be on board with that plan…

  25. cjcolucci says

    Kids today, like kids back in the day, are too into consumerism, booze, sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll to become jihadis — or even serious Muslims of the non-threatening kind, which would be most of them. Besides, they don’t learn anything else they’re taught; why would they learn jihad?

  26. Chiroptera says

    As a result, our youth are subject to the following teachings and practices:

    Staging a Jihad (war against non-Muslims)

    This might very well be true. Remember that to our conservative cousins, “jihad” includes registering minorities to vote!

    “Studies have shown…”

    That should be all you need to hear to get you running, far, far away.

    The Clinton Administration?

    Anybody want to tell Dean The Clenis has been out of power for 12 years?

  30. patricksimons says

    I have no more desire to see Muslims running the country than I do fundamentalist Christians. Dig up political speeches made during the McCarthy era, cross out Communist and insert Muslim, and you have what’s being said today.

    Ah, those would be two of the Five Pillows Of Islam.

    Oh, so that’s why my 11 year old son has been praying towards Mecca 5 times a day and my daughter insists on wearing a niqab!
