Libs should shudder: Chuck Norris takes on Common Core

roundhouse-kick-chuck-norrisChuck Norris has taken his famous roundhouse kick and planted one straight to the face of Common Core.

“Stop Common Core right now!” the badass conservative wrote in his new column on Newsbusters.

Part one of Norris’ article on Common Core State Standards offers an in-depth examination of the government’s overreach into the “local academic arenas” of our children.

Norris wrote, in part:

My first issue with CCSS is one that is hot on the blogosphere and in the news: The feds have abandoned their commitment to stay out of local academic affairs by using CCSS to usurp power over public schools and influence young American minds.

In fact, one of the biggest defenses by CCSS advocates is their belief that the federal government — particularly the White House — is in no way behind the standards’ implementation, development and utility.

PolitiFact examined the words of Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who said last July that CCSS is being “used by the Obama administration to turn the Department of Education into what is effectively a national school board.” PolitiFact categorically evaluated Rubio’s statement as false.

But recent evidence shows that Rubio is right and PolitiFact is wrong. The feds already have started invading local school districts via CCSS in three ways: funding, influencing classroom curricula and siphoning student information from schools. Let me explain each in turn.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve yet to see the federal government funding anything that it didn’t eventually have its hands into.

I am personally challenging state and federal representatives to get on board to stop this Common Core insanity. I will be researching each politician to see who is and who is not supporting CCSS, and before this series is complete, I will be publishing their names in my columns, and they reach millions. I’m sure my readers will find my list of names helpful the next time they walk into the voting booths!

Norris’ coming out against Common Core has opened a floodgate of new “How awesome, bad, tough, great is Chuck Norris?” on Twitter, and Twitchy collected the best of a lot of outstanding tweets under #ChuckNorrisEduFacts.

    Chuck Norris is now an expert on education? Great! If the kid ain’t learnin’ his mathematics; punch him in the face!

      Actually a gentle kick in the seat of the pants generally works better on a kid than a punch in the face

      Jeb Bush claims to be an education Expert, he and Barack Obama are joined at the hip on Common Core, so are you now a Bushie?

      • Doug

        He must be smart he can kick really high.

      • seazen

        Jeb Bush has a long history of serious involvement with education. His brother, not so much.

        • http://grumpyelder.com/ Grumpy

          Bush has a long history of figuring out ways to make money off of education.. Barry hasn’t done too bad in that department either…

    My question will always be – who “fact checks” the “fact Checkers.” They did the same thing to me following our press conference here in Tampa about CC. They, the “fact checkers, like Obama, LIE!” So when someone tells me that according to “PolitiFact” I am able to dismiss their claim immediately. They, the fact checkers, have an agenda – so do I but at least I am honest about it.

    • Doug

      My agenda is uncovering and exposing agendas.

  • Doug

    I’m sure he has impeccable education credentials.

    I’ve been doing some Common Core investigations too. I reviewed 3 human geography and 1 history book; all are filled with lies, propaganda, misstatements, and missing information that’s required. History is revised. America is diminished, and Christianity and Judaism take a backseat to a whitewashed version of Islam. Cursive was discontinued so that future generations will not be able to read our Founding documents. I have it on good authority by a clinical social worker and educators that the novels to be read by junior and high school students are causing severe depression, anxiety, fear of school, vomiting, and more; the books contain every ill known to man: rape, incest, loneliness, poverty, fear; students will not want to read, or be inspired to create, learn, be challenged, seek success. I have proof and can send you upon request. Abraham Lincoln said: The philosophy of the classroom today will be the philosophy of government tomorrow.
    BEWARE parents. Investigate the books; check the “facts” being fed to your children. For proof: contact me on facebook.

      Norris is from Texas, where
      the conservatives control the board of the Texas State Board of Education, 15
      to 5. Here are some examples of what happens when the states make up their own
      standards:

      The Board removed Thomas
      Jefferson from the Texas curriculum’s world history standards on Enlightenment
      thinking, “replacing him with John Calvin.

      “Teachers in Texas will
      be required to cover the Judeo-Christian influences of the nation’s Founding
      Fathers, but not highlight the philosophical rationale for the separation of
      church and state.

      The Board refused to require that “students learn that the Constitution
      prevents the U.S. government from promoting one religion over all others.

      They also included a plank
      to ensure that students learn the conservative movement from 1980 to 2000
      including Phyllis Schlafly, the Contract With America, the Heritage Foundation,
      the Moral Majority and the National Rifle Association.’” The Dallas
      Morning News noted that “high school students will learn about leading
      conservative groups from the 1980s and 1990s, but not about liberal or minority
      rights groups.”

      “Board member Barbara Cargill, R-The Woodlands, objected to a standard for a high school sociology
      course that addressed the difference between sex and gender. It was eliminated in a 9-to-6 vote. She worried that a discussion of that issue would lead
      students into the world of ‘transvestites, transsexuals and who knows what
      else.”

      With all five minority members dissenting, the conservative-dominated panel voted 10-5 to endorse the proposed standards after rejecting an effort to specifically mention that Tejanos were among the fallen heroes of the Alamo. “I am very distressed,” said Mary Helen Berlanga, D-Corpus Christi, who sponsored the
      unsuccessful amendment. “Until we are ready to tell the truth about history, we don’t have a good history or social studies textbook.”

      In Texas, students will now be taught that slaves were not kidnapped and exploited against their will, but were actually “unpaid interns.”
