Thank God for FOX News!

They’ve uncovered another scary plot in our schools.  That this one involves an ancient Islamist cult, started by Muhammad ibn Mūsā al-Khwārizmī, when he wrote the revolutionary screed, The Compendious Book on Calculation by Completion and Balancing, sometime in the early ninth Century.

In the succeeding 1,200 years, al-Khwārizmī’s terrorist ideas have infiltrated math, higher math, abstract thinking, logic and concepts of artificial intelligence philosophy.  Not to mention hundreds of millions of math students, who lost an accumulation of billions of hours of sleep studying his terrorizing ideas, and went so far as writing billions of numbers and letters (usually, X’s, A’s, B’s and C’s) on their inner forearms or the palms of their hands – sometimes even drawing blood!).

Here’s FOX, exposing the plot – without even naming what it is specifically:

Wonkette notes:

We don’t know how Eric Bolling, of Fox braintrust “The Five,” managed to talk about liberal indoctrination with math without even bothering to note that algebra was invented by A-RABS and is a Mooslem plot. But at least he is on the case of the Marxists at Scholastic teaching the distributive property with a worksheet about distributing the wealth. GO SCHOLASTIC!

Here’s the liberal, uh –  Commie, uh – Al Qaeda propaganda Scholastic is, uh, distributing:

Product Description:
Insight into the distributive property as it applies to multiplication is defined and supported with examples. Students complete each multiplication sentence using the distributive property!

What an insidious plot! Thank you, FOX. What would America do without you?

By the way, the comments at the Wonkette article linked to above, at The Raw Story, and at Booman Tribune, are hilarious.

And, here it is.  You don’t even have to waterboard me to get the info out of me:

2 × (1 + 3) = (2 × 1) + (2 × 3) but 2 /(1 + 3) is not equal to (2 / 1) + (2 / 3).
