More Foolishness From Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN)

Rep. Andre Carson (D-IN) received national attention last year by claiming the Tea Party goal was “to see blacks hanging from a tree.” He was back in the news when he addressed the Islamic Circle of North America convention.
The Congressman said madrassa schools (Islamic parochial schools), should be a model for how American children are taught.
The schools receive government funding in the UK, but reports have demonstrated students are beaten and taught intolerance of all things non-Islamic.
The National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States (the “9/11 Commission”), says the schools in Pakistan were fostering anti-American and terrorist sympathies.
The Congressman later said he was not promoting the Koran or his religion, but that is not what the video demonstrates.
Rep. Carson said the Koran should be the “foundation” for American schools: “America will never tap into educational innovation and ingenuity without looking at the model that we have in our madrassas, in our schools, where innovation is encouraged, where the foundation is the Koran.”
The lawmaker said “I say to those who are here under cover … Allah will not allow you to stop us. . . There are only two Muslims in Congress and we want more; and we have to have more. . .
We have to registered to vote.
“We must begin to groom the mayor of Hartford Connecticut. We have to groom the next city councilor, the next governor, the future President; the first Muslim President. . . It’s time for us to create the next generation of leaders.”
After a firestorm of negative publicity, the Congressman was asked if he believes American public school curriculum should be based on the Koran. He has apparently changed his viewpoint because today Carson is saying, “No, no no.”
