Kara Sands, Texas mom asks why school quiz blames US for 9/11

A Texas mother is stirring conservatives after discovering her son’s fifth grade quiz points to the US causing the 9/11 and may be “indoctrinating” kids to leftist ideals.

The test question asked why the U.S. may be a target for terrorism and her son chose the correct answer to the test that covered material from a video students watched in class: “Decisions we made in the United States have had negative effects on people elsewhere.” (see a photo below)

“I’m not going to justify radical terrorists by saying we did anything to deserve that; over 3,000 people died,” Kara Sands told KRISTV.com.

Kara Sands posted the test her son received in fifth grade at the Flour Bluff Independent School District in September on her Facebook page, which attracted more than 1,600 users in support of her concerns.

While reviewing some other work from the class, she found that in one worksheet on the Bill of Rights, “food and medicine” as are listed as human “rights.”

This argument was key to the debate over Obamacare and universal healthcare.

    Funny. First they say OMG! Obama’s drone strikes are going to cause more terrorism! Then they say OMG! School are teaching that U.S. policies are a cause of terrorism!
