Arab Fifth Column Al Jabr Attacks U.S. Schools

11:12 am in Uncategorized by EdwardTeller

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).

Chinese-Language Animation of Palin as Gun-toting, Dope-smoking, Pole-Dancing Bimbo Going Viral

Wonkette picked up on this Youtube Saturday evening. Chinese, it is most likely out of Taiwan or Hong Kong. The script, translated into English, is rather bland. The accompanying images, however, in the video are humorous, reaching well beyond the usual news channel snark.

Here’s the script:

Sarah Palin was a virtual unknown, even in the US, when John McCain picked her as his vice-presidential running mate in August 2008.

But after parting ways with McCain, Palin has since become the standard bearer of the Republican Party and the conservative right in the United States.

Her opinions are sought after by a highly respected broadcast news organization.

Her family life is the subject of much fascination. There have been rumors her daughter and future son-in-law could feature in a reality TV show.

With her rising political profile, Sarah Palin has waded into New York City politics and in the process, invented new words. She compares herself to William Shakespeare.

She has used her popularity to raise US$1.3 million so far this year for her political action committee, SarahPAC.

This fund-raising largess has raised speculation that Sarah Palin could be preparing to run against President Barack Obama in 2012.

If she wins, that would indicate the American people have "refudiated" Barack Obama and chosen conservative values.

Here’s the video:
