Minnesota Schools Close So Teachers Can Play with Dolls, Learn About Teaching Islam

Kyle Olson, Daily Caller, October 20, 2012

Each year, Minnesota government schools close for two days (just before the weekend, of course) so teachers’ union members can gather at a conference organized by their union.

It’s meant to “inspire teachers,” EAGnews.org reported, and the conference includes a session titled, “Using Persona Dolls to Promote Social Emotional Intelligence and Acceptance of Diversity.”

The union describes it this way: “Used around the world, persona dolls are lifelike dolls with personalities and stories you create. The dolls become members of your classroom community and children learn by empathizing with the dolls and giving them heartfelt advice on the same kinds of situations they struggle with daily in the classroom and on the playground.”


The conference also includes a workshop on how to teach about Islam. The union says about the session:

“An expert panel will present information on teaching about Islam in the context of social studies and world religion. They will share perspectives on how educators can help improve intercultural communication and well-being for immigrant and refugee students and families from Muslim countries.”

    Islam:  The official religion of the American public school system.

    Didn’t we learn our lesson with this “doll” nonsense when it came to Brown vs Board of Education?

    The conference also includes a workshop on how to teach about Math.”

    Every teacher failed…

  • That sounds nice. Who’s betting they won’t hear anything about the September 11, 2001 hijackers’ jihad or suicide bombers blowing up American soldiers or Israeli children? And why the focus on only one religion?

    That’s the point, isn’t it? Distract people with PC nonsense so they don’t have the opportunity to ask questions.

    Promoting social emotional intelligence so that Whites will become more accepting of Diversity is what evangelical post Christian churches have been doing since the 1950s.

    Evangelicals actually believe they can’t be Christians until they worship the New Christ MLK.

    Teachers & students could learn a lot from this lesson if they would dress all of the dolls in Burkas  and then shoot one in the head, force another into prostitution, stone one and cut the nose off of another.

    Instead of “empathizing” and “giving heartfelt advice” to these muslim kids, how about we demand that they speak english, assimilate and Americanize as fast as possible or else get the heck out of our classrooms?

    • IstvanIN

       How about just get the heck out as quickly as possible.

    • I would prefer they leave the country.

  • This is one big joke! These teachers should be in school teaching. Not playing with dolls dressed in hijabs. Are we supposed to all dress like Muslims. Why don’t these Muslims go live in a Muslim country where they would be happier because everyone is like them?

    Years from now, in a generation or two in the future, people will look back (hopefully?) and stand astonished at how insane we had become with political-correctness! Minnesota government schools, like most school systems in our country, have lost all direction as to their primary mission which is to provide a basic education to the children under their care.

    But mark this: Any parent who sends their children to public schools sends them to a lions den of social-marxism and anti-White idealogy. One way to combat their influence if a parent is unable to afford a private school or home-school their kids (the preferred choice) is to: (1) Counter everything they are taught in a non-hostile or threatening manner, although employing reason and facts. This presupposes that the parent is informed and well-read. (2) Subtlely mock and ridicule everything that’s politically-correct. Don’t make it appear to your kids as if you simply have an “axe to grind.” Instead, make it humorous and normal to laugh at liberalism and multi-cultural thought. Use it all to your advantage. (3) Get in the habit of asking your children deeper questions about society, morality and even racial issues. You don’t have to lecture them per se, but often a well-timed question can provoke your children to really think about such matters. (4) Talk to them about the great contributions that Whites have made to the world. (5) Make it clear to your children that while you would never endorse violence and aggression against Blacks or any other “minority,” Whites are wise to avoid Blacks and ghetto communities. (6) Make it known to your children that when Whites “act Black” or follow their trends in music, fashion and general mentality, they debase themselves. (6) Finally, avoid calling Blacks the “N” word or other degrading terms because it makes you appear like the “racist” the PC school systems rail against. Instead, let your words always appear as if Blacks and their pop ghetto culture are to be pitied (although not tolerated), that they are merely foolish little children at heart (although deadly ones), and that it is best to avoid them at all costs.

      You should consolidate these thoughts into a flyer and spread it around conservative forums.

    What a sick pathetic society this has become. Actually training for their own racial replacement. An unbelievable psychosis.

      This until now anonymous campaigner against the encroachment of Islam into our civilisation has now come out.   He has a message in this clip for America.

  • Islamic law prohibits playing with dolls.


  • And I thought California was insane. Looks like it’s a race to the bottom between Minnesota and California.

    If you were in charge of organizing the Muslim takeover of America, the Minnesota education establishment – or anything in Minnesota, for that matter – would be your first target.

    It’s an easy victory over the most naive do-gooders the country has to offer. Their entusiastic reception of your propaganda will set the tone for other states and give you an all-too-eager stooge front to shield you from criticism and fight your battles for you.

  • John Bonham

    Some of the stories on here are amazing .. I mean you can’t even make this stuff up ..
    Do the words home schooling appeal to anyone here , after reading this ?

  • John Bonham

     Yes, but you’re forgetting one thing .. Islam is the religion of peace ..PPPpffftt !!!
    What a joke.

    I just can’t imagine some big, 6’4″, strapping gym teacher/football coach sitting there playing with a doll, or even pretending to show interest in such puerile exercises. This is the result of what I believe is the “over-feminization” (for lack of a better term) or our society. A bunch of idiot females concoct ridiculous exercises that belong in a kindergarten classroom, and have everything to do with “feelings” and nothing to do with thinking. I wouldn’t last ten minutes with that group, let alone two days.

    Teaching Islam requires knowledge of the subject and I’ll wager that whoever is teaching the teachers knows next to nothing about Islam or are willingly complicit with Islam. Our students do not need knowledge of Islam right now. (They will very soon though). They need more knowledge about America and how it became the great nation that these idiots are trying to destroy.

  • Why do we have to hide our crosses yet it is OK to teach that foreign cult over here known as Isham from the moon god moonhamed? The pedophile brings no raised eyebrows to them but it damn well should from our own children,  I hope the children of today know enough to nod gently and smile and hold in what must be held in order to pass a class, but it is enough to know the kids know what truth and the difference between a seven year old girl who is now a slave to a grown man which makes a normal person throw up with disgust as well it should,  Ask yourself what kind of people would possibly condone this and then label it as a religion.  All I have heard about islam is the enslavement of women, murdering people who dont agree with islam, pedophilic behaviour and fudge packing is OK too.  No thanks, but Ill stick to the religion that doesnt hold a value to violence, that doesn’t enslave women or anyone else, and who says Peace and Love if someone disagrees with the philosphy of Christianity.  There is a big difference between a religion and a cult that grew out of hand.

  •  sounds as if you are aware of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, No jew is ever learned that I am familiar with but they are evil as their father the devil.

    Only if it is Christianity.
