Muslim Democrat Says American Schools Won’t Succeed Unless They Model After Madrassas (Video)

Allahu Akbar.
Muslim Congressman Andre Carson (D-IN) said American schools won’t succeed unless they model after Muslim madrassas.

Because Muslim madrassas have such a stellar reputation in the education community.

Breitbart has video of Rep. Andre Carson at the Islamic Circle of North America – Muslim American Society 2012 Convention where he gave what some called a “motivational speech.
Via All American blogger:

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.

Here’s one example of madrassa education in Pakistan.

More background on Carson…
He represents Indiana’s 7th Congressional District (Indianapolis). He’s backed by Louis Farrakhan.

The American Thinker did an expose on him. They weren’t too impressed.

    “the model that WE have in OUR madrassas, in OUR schools,”?????

    His schools are radical Islamist madrassas? If he is so into his radical Islamist religion, why is he using an English name and not his Muslim name? He deceiving his constituents by hiding who he is. Just as that other radical Islamist in congress Kieth ellison who refuses to use his Islamic name because they desire to DECEIVE just as the Koran says to do to ht infidels. These are traitors to America and should never be re-elected.

  • MikeSilver

    You can’t argue with success. Look at President Obama.

    He has spent more time studying in a madrassa, than he ever did working in the private sector.

  • RealMc

    I agree with this guy 100%.

    First things first however,……… this form of schooling should be implemented in the very district this moron was elected to.

    From 1919, (note the key is creating free thinking citizens, not something you get in the Islamic education)

    Here, then, lies the deeper significance of the problem method of teaching because of the direct effect of the school training on our citizenship and national progress. The history of education contains several illustrations of the relation of school training to citizenship and national advancement, the most striking of which, perhaps, is found in the Mohammedan system of education. In the elementary schools, and also in the universities of these countries, the instruction consists of dictating passages from the Koran or from commentaries on the Koran. It is all memoriter work and prevails much more than in America. Charles W. Eliot, President Emeritus of Harvard University, has given a most interesting description of the work in an elementary school in Tangier in North Africa. In this school for young children, he found a white-bearded man clothed in white, seated on straw in the center of a group of children. He had a long, flexible fishing-rod with which he could reach every pupil. This teacher recited several words from the Koran and then the children repeated these words in unison exactly as they had been given. Mr. Eliot states that this was the only work done in that school. Later, he visited the University of Cairo and found that every teacher was doing the same thing, but to a greater degree.
    This memoriter method in education is the prime cause of the backward condition of the Mohammedans. This is the reason that for many centuries natural science has made no progress in these countries, and clearly shows the relation of school training to national progress.

    His congressional district is Indianapolis IN- Let him start his maddrssa experiment their first . Should be a very small school.

    What a bunch of idiots would vote the second mooslim into congress. His district is 63% white and white collar? I bet they are real proud of their man in Washington right now.

  • archer52

    Again, the real question here is how did this guy get elected? Why are we electing Muslims who want to change our nation into an Islamic nation?

    This is Roberts’ point. We get stupid, we elect stupid people, they say and do stupid things. And its his fault?

    The good news is he is Congressman, which means he is running every two years. Hopefully, the idiots in his district will realize PC or not, electing certain types to represent you is a BAD idea and will vote him out next cycle.

    Then he can start his own school and see how many people will send their kids to a place like Jim highlighted.

    When we have a Black President, blah, blah, blah,….
    When we put women in charge, blah, blah, blah, …
    When we let gay people do their nasty, blah, blah blah …
    Islamophobia, blah, blah, blah …
    Coexist, blah, blah, blah, ….

    This multi-culti BS is getting real old!

    I forgot to mention that if we make ALL illegals citizens, all of our problems will be solved!

    Are Muslims permitted to lie?

    Summary Answer:

    Muslim scholars teach that Muslims should generally be truthful to each other, unless the purpose of lying is to “smooth over differences.”

    There are two forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, taqiyya and kitman. These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.”

  • Chris in KY

    No, he’s right. But since we are a Christian nation, we should use the Bible. Even the media should love this, since it was suggested by a moslim.

    Typical day:

    Period 1- RPG 101
    Period 2- Sex Ed- How to violate your goat
    Period 3- JOOOO hating
    Period 4- Visit from the Great Satan’s NASA rep
    Period 5- Play “Hide the Salami” with Uncle Achmed
    Period 6- Machete sharpening skills
    Period 7- Forgery 101- replicate SS card, Selective service card, birth certificate, student
    loans to hide real intentions in the land of the infidel. One our
    graduates has mastered the finer details of duping weak minded
    JOOOS and crackers.

    FORWARD, to the 7th Century. These people have never developed beyond that.
    Girls and women are servants to their masters; no free thought, no education, no choice. I suggest this congress critter go to a country that has this ideal in place, there are many to choose. NO SHARIA in the USA.

    “where the foundation is the Koran”?

    Where is the ACLU when you need them?

    Keep in mind that 1967 through 1971, while our school children were reciting the Pledge of Allegiance, Barack Hussein Obama was reciting the Islamic Call To Prayer In Perfect Arabic.

    “Innovation”? – from a culture that hasn’t invented anything since the camel-dung fire.

    @archer/#8 asked,
    ‘..the real question here is how did this guy get elected?’

    No surprise, radical hate-mongers beget radical hate-mongers:

    Time to homeschool until we can revamp our public schools. The progressives have had their way for far too many years with our children. If we want things to change and not into the Pres. hope and change-we must stand.

    Sadly too many will say either their school is not bad, or their child needs socialization.

    Remember this: Andre Carson’s wife is a school principal and this democrat is comfortable and confident that his notion will not be shocking. Seems like they know they have a foot in the door.

  • SeniorD

    And how, praytell, did this Demodonk get his eductation? Did he attend a Maddrass in his youth?

    I didn’t think so.

    Allen West re: Andre Carson: “reprehensible.”

    [“As Chairman of the CBC, I believe it is incumbent on you to both condemn these types of hate-filled comments, and to disassociate the Congressional Black Caucus from these types of remarks. Otherwise, I will have to seriously reconsider my membership within the organization,” West wrote.

    “As a member of the CBC, I look forward to working with you to help end this practice. All of us, especially Congressman Carson, Congresswoman Waters and others who have engaged in racially motivated rhetoric, should follow the example of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., not the example of Reverend Jeremiah Wright.”

    And Timothy F. Johnson, founder of the Frederick Douglass Foundation, said Wednesday that the civil rights abuses and crimes of the Jim Crow era were carried out mostly in regions controlled by the Democratic Party. He decried Carson’s comments as “outrageous, hateful, and desperate,” adding in a statement: “When some Democrats can’t win a political disagreement, they normally resort to race-baiting, which is in itself racist.”

    Deneen Borelli, an African-American tea party speaker and a fellow with Project 21, a network of black conservatives under the auspices The National Center for Public Policy Research, called for Carson to resign.]

    Frank Gaffney & Zuhdi Jasser vs. CAIR

    Dr. Juhdi Jasser’s fight against Islamism

    [“As we try to understand where the Obama administration will fall with regards to the global threat of political Islam, the first few months have provided a number of hints, not least of which was the tenor of the recent visit to Turkey. It was painfully obvious after witnessing the length to which the Obama team went to avoid any substantive discussion on political Islam and the threat it poses to human rights abroad and domestically. Domestically, in the weeks preceding his trip, Islamists inside the Beltway began to more openly play their cards to what they obviously perceive to be a friendly administration.

    …On January 8th the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association sent out an email announcing that they would be hosting an inaugural gala titled, “Muslim Inauguration Gala”. Guests included Congressman Keith Ellison, (D-MN), Cong. Andre Carson (D-IN), “Representatives of the Obama Administration”, Rev. Walter Fauntroy (DC-Delegate), Zaid Shakir and Hamza Yusef (of the Zaytuna Institute), Fmr. Capt. James Yee, Senegalese President Abduolaye Wade, CAIR Michigan Director, Dawud Walid, and Johari Abdul-Malik of the Muslim Alliance of North America. This list reads like a Who’s Who of leading Islamists in the United States, all of whom share the ideological framework of political Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    For example, Mr. Johari Abdul-Malik spoke just last year at a July 2008 London conference of the “Radical Middle Way”. This Radical Middle Way, sadly British government supported, is an ideological outgrowth of the ideas of Sheikh Yusef Qaradawi spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood…” ]
