More Extremism from Cynthia Dunbar

by TFN

Texas State Board of Education member Cynthia Dunbar’s online essay last weekend accusing (now) President-elect Barack Obama of sympathizing with terrorists apparently wasn’t her first trip down the extremism highway. Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Linda Campbell today noted that another online essay by the Richmond Republican in September was even more extreme.

In her earlier essay, Dunbar accused Obama of, among other things, promoting Marxism.

The liberal media knows about Obama’s communistic world view. In support of its endorsement the New York Times stated about Obama that “He has drawn in legions of new voters with powerful messages of hope and possibility and calls for shared sacrifice and social responsibility….” Does this language not disturb us as Americans? If it doesn’t it is simply because we don’t understand the role of civil government from a Biblical World View as our Founders did. “Shared sacrifice and social responsibility” smack of Marxist Communism and redistribution of wealth. This is a completely anti-American, anti-Constitutional view of the role of Federal Government, and Marxism is diametrically opposed to a Biblical World View. [Emphasis added.]

Good heavens. Now those of us who believe in “shared sacrifice and social responsibility” are Marxists? Remember: The state board on which Dunbar sits determines what more than 4.6 million Texas children learn in their public schools. Even worse, she is part of a faction of fellow extremists — including the chairman — that controls the state board. That faction is deciding what Texas kids learn in courses like science (evolution), health (sex education) and social studies (what it means to be an American and what this country stands for).

Texas, we have a problem. A big problem.
