Kansas City School Board Recognizes Special Status for Muslims

5 10 2016

H/T to  CausingFitna and  Creeping Sharia for this information.

The Kansas City School Board of Directors has voted on, and the Chairwoman Melissa Robinson and Superintendent Mark Bidell have signed, a resolution which mirrors the UN Resolution 16/18 and HR 569, a resolution currently in committee in the U.S. House of Representatives.  What the resolution effectively does is elevates the status of Islam, and Muslims, above criticism and challenge, or even questioning, from non-Muslims.

UN 16/18 was formerly known as the “Defamation of Religion”, or more accurately, the “International Blasphemy” law, brought by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), praised by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who promised to extra-legal tactics to implement it in the United States while she was in Turkey, whose government has flipped from a secular format to one which is increasingly Islamic, and continues to purge journalists who are critical of the AKP Sharia driven agenda there.

HR 569, currently in committee and co-sponsored by 145 Democrats, brings 16/18 to the United States. I have written much about this resolution here, and here.

The KC Schools resolution specifically names Muslims, those perceived as being Muslim, and people of color, as being the victims of “an unprecedented backlash” against Muslims since the 9/11 attacks.  The backlash which has never occurred, in spite of the unbroken stream of propaganda from the media on a daily basis about how Muslims are the most persecuted group in America.

The simple fact is, of all religious groups, Jews are still the most victimized.  The FBI reports 62% of anti-Religion hate crimes are against Jews, compared to 11% against Muslims.  While that FBI report is 2012, the latest available in a quick search, the latest data gathered by a media study group shows an uptick in post terror attack of about 17% in the few weeks following 9/11, but dropping back to 10% higher a year later.  That would increase the overall anti-Muslim instances to about 12-13% of all anti-religious hate crimes are against Muslims while not changing the 62% against Jews appreciably.

So where is the “safe-space” resolution for the Jews and the Christians who attend the Kansas City public schools?  Perhaps those families who send their children to those schools should draft an “anti-discrimination” resolution and take it to their school board to get it approved.  Christians and Jews have been criticized, ridiculed, and ostracized for their Creation science beliefs for years.  They’ve also been told to basically keep their mouth shut about moral issues concerning sex and marriage, and stop praying, because it’s a public school and that’s a “violation of separation of church and state”, which doesn’t seem to apply to Muslims.

Below is the text of the KC School district resolution (courtesy CreepingSharia).  Keep in mind that in Islam, any speech or action rejecting, questioning, or challenging Islam, Quran, Hadith, Sharia, or Muslims is considered “violence, bigotry, hate speech” and has even been called “crimes against humanity” or “human rights violation” by Islamic leaders.  Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) coined a term for it: “Islamophobia”.

Condemning violence and hate speech, expressing support for Muslim students and those perceived as Muslims

Adopted by the Kansas City Public Schools Board of Education September 28, 2016

WHEREAS the United States was founded by immigrants, many fleeing religious persecution, who enshrined freedom of religion as one of our nation’s fundamental legal and ethical principles; and

WHEREAS there are more than 3 million Muslims living in the United States today, and approximately 30,000 living in the Greater Kansas City area, making invaluable contributions to our economy, our social and political life, and our culture; and

WHEREAS discrimination on the basis of religion, and against Muslims and those perceived as Muslims in particular, is deeply embedded within our country’s long history of racism and xenophobia; and

WHEREAS there has been an unprecedented backlash since the September 11th attacks in the form of hate crimes and employment discrimination toward Arab and Muslim Americans and those perceived as Muslims; and

WHEREAS Muslims, Muslim Americans, and those perceived as Muslims, are frequently the targets of abusive and discriminatory police practices sanctioned by the state including surveillance in their neighbor hoods and places of worship; and

WHEREAS the recent escalation of hateful rhetoric against Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants, and people of color is especially harmful to children, as it has a negative impact on their psychological well-being, the health of their peer relationships, and their ability to thrive in school; and

WHEREAS Muslim students, and those perceived as Muslims, across the country have reported instances of bullying and disproportionate school discipline on account of their religion and/or race; and

WHEREAS approximately 653 Kansas City Public Schools’ families have designated Somali, Arabic, and other Muslim languages being spoken in their homes; and

WHEREAS Muslim students in the Kansas City Public school district contribute in numerous ways to the vitality of the learning environment, and
their parents form an integral part of their school communities; and

WHEREAS providing a safe school environment that ensures both the physical and emotional safety of students and staff creates the conditions necessary to foster academic achievement; and

WHEREAS it is the responsibility of schools to educate students about the social, cultural and ethnic diversity of the United States, to promote awareness of a wide range of religious and cultural traditions, and to teach students to think critically about their own biases; and

WHEREAS we, as the leaders of the Kansas City Public Schools have a responsibility to ensure that all of our students are supported in their academic and personal development:

Now therefore be it resolved, that the Kansas City Public Schools

(1) Condemns all hateful speech and violent action directed at Muslims, those perceived as Muslims, immigrants and people of color;
(2) Commits to fostering a school environment that promotes respect for and curiosity about all religions and cultures, affirms the equal humanity of all members of the community, and rejects all forms of bullying and discrimination;
(3) Commits to instituting school policies and setting an educational curriculum that reflects the values expressed in this resolution via training of staff and teachers, the inclusion of diverse resources to supplement in-class curricula, and the creation of safe spaces for students to address school-based bullying.

“Pre-school to prison pipeline” studies show minority students suspended and expelled from public schools at rates four and five times that of white students. 2011-12 school year, black Kansas secondary students suspension rate almost 20%, white students less than 5%. Why is this and how can we curb?

This is a cultural problem that began 40 years ago with the break up of the black family. The Progressives have successfully shackled minority Americans to the government plantation, and as LBJ said, “will vote Democrat for 200 years”. What was once a tighter family unit than even the white majority, is now nothing more than a breeding ground for angry rebels. The black American community once held faith in God and the Bible as the core of it’s existence. No more. This is the problem; and it will not be fixed in one generation, let alone one election cycle. Christian America has lost the culture war. The divisions have been driven deeper and wider by the current President and his entire Chicago gansta band. Music that glorifies killing cops and “bustin’ a cap” on anybody else who gets in your way is continuing to drive this attitude – not just for black people, but rebels of all races and ethnicity. A godless culture will always break down. Teach 4 generations of Americans they are nothing more than animals, and they will act like it. At this point the only way to curb these attitudes is by police state, compulsive actions. In 1847 Speaker of the House Robert Winthrop said, “…man will either be governed by the Bible or by the bayonet.” The Bible has been ostracized. Very soon, society will demand the bayonet.

The most lucid statement of the overall problem that I’ve I read in a long time.

A lucid definition of the problem.

Are you saying there is a correlation between 78% of black children growing up in single parent households and 1 in 3 adult black males in prison or on parole?

Hmm… Were logic a tool used in assessing data without a political agenda underlying, it would seem to have relativity wouldn’t it?

I haven’t seen the actual numbers that high, but the data I saw said 66%, with American Native and Latino populations running near or over 50%, but that data is 2 years old. Nonetheless, 25 million kids (all races) in the USA growing up in single parent homes represents a full one third of the entire children under 18 years of age. Any 1st year psych major can see the effects of this is going to have detrimental impact on any society.

I am so sick of the academic community, politicians, and even the religious community choosing to ignore the elephant in the room. You cannot raise moral citizens in a moral vacuum. I actually believe that this is the unseen attraction to Islam by these people; they don’t understand it, but they admire the discipline of Muslims, without realizing that we have thrown away the highest societal order – the Judeo-Christian ethic (there I said it!) and have gone “whoring after false gods”. Anyone who has read the Old Testament knows this never works out well!
