Texas School Teacher Told Students To Call 9/11 Hijackers "Freedom Fighters"
G. K. Chesterton said, "The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."
The same school responsible for this:
...has a teacher telling students to call the 9/11 hijackers "freedom fighters."
Her explanation was that people who sacrifice their lives for a Holy War are "freedom fighters."
I would have to point out the difference - a "freedom fighter" sacrifices his life to protect others. A terrorist sacrifices his life to destroy others. It is not a difficult concept.
In the teacher's defense, some students claim she seemed to be very uncomfortable with the new curriculum. So, the school board is more to blame.
An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.
Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”
