Dr. Ben Carson Says He’s Shocked by Anti-American Curriculum in Today’s Schools

The new Advanced Placement curriculum being used in classrooms around the country has become a target for critics who say the lessons devalue the achievements of great Americans, and instead focus too heavily on America’s worst periods.

And now it’s come under fire from possible conservative presidential candidate and famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson.

Carson says the curriculum being taught to high school students focuses heavily on the dark periods in America’s history such as slavery and Japanese internment camps, but hardly makes any mention of great American heroes such as George Washington and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Carson even quipped that after reading the curriculum, many people would be “ready to sign up for ISIS.”

Transcript via Breitbart:

I am a little shocked quite frankly looking at the AP course in American history that’s being taught in high schools across our country right now. There’s only two paragraphs in there about George Washington. George Washington, believe it or not. Little or nothing about Martin Luther King. A whole section of slavery and how evil we are. A whole section about Japanese internment camps. A whole section about how we wiped out American Indians with no mercy.

I mean I think most people when they finish that course, they’d be ready to sign up for ISIS. This is what we are doing to the young people in our nation. We have got to stop this silliness. We have to stop crucifying ourselves. Have we made mistakes as a nation? Of course we have. Why? Because we are people and all people make mistakes.

Watch the clip below …


It’s fascinating to watch the liberal media unable to discern that Carson was making a joke with the ISIS comments. A majority of sites are reporting it as fact that Carson believes kids are going to read the material and then go join ISIS.

The liberal media, who has for six years now hailed President Obama as the smartest man to walk the planet, is not bright enough to understand a truly intelligent man like Dr. Ben Carson.

    If this doesn’t tell us to get education out of the hands of government – any level of government – then nothing will. They will not be able to resist having the content forward a political agenda.

    Oblammer, Golfer-in-Chief. Ben Carson has forgotten more than that liar ever knew.

    Ben Carson it is exactly for the same reason why our own President ignores any attempts today to support Americans trying to support our country. Five years writing Obama and he has dismissed every initiative I’ve sent to lift up good, create jobs and get our youth/families involved. All positive, all supporting our country, all to help and start rebuilding toward recovery and Obama turns his back on all to be awarded. Schools should be standing in line to bring KHWIKBALL into students curriculum and social interaction but it is not happening as wholesome/healthy participation is being removed and replaced by an agenda that teaches past wrongs and horrible acts instead of embracing worth and good that America stands on and delivers. Here our President ignores not only initiatives to lift up and bring social change but also everything from manufacturing through distribution representing jobs, paychecks and our economic decline. President Obama keeps ignoring good to be delivered yet promotes everything I’m sharing here that KHWIKBALL represents. The lies, deception and devastation being caused by President Obama and democrats supporting him is outright appalling. America here is KHWIKBALL http://www.khwikball.com Now tell me why our own President ignores all this sport represents and can deliver right here at home especially at a time when change is needed taking America in a new direction toward prosperity? President Obama tells America what they want to hear and does the complete opposite bring more devastation and decline every day. This is not a President having the best interests for the American people in mind. His resignation would be a bright day in American history. RESIGN PRESIDENT OBAMA AND LET THAT BE TOLD THROUGHOUT OUR HIGH SCHOOLS AS A DAY AMERICA STARTED TO REBUILD & RECOVER.
