Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is latching onto a chain email conspiracy theory about the CSCOPE curriculum, which according to detractors promotes Islam, Communism and anti-Americanism.
Of course, the charges are completely baseless, but the Texas congressman is following Glenn Beck and WorldNetDaily in attacking CSCOPE and even linking it to President Obama.
Dan Quinn of the Texas Freedom Network got his hands on Stockman campaign literature asking members to stand with Stockman “to fight stop [sic] President Obama’s radical take over [sic] of our Texas Schools.”
That’s right; Stockman’s education-themed letter includes two typos:
As Quinn notes, CSCOPE was designed by Texas teachers and has nothing to do with the Obama administration.
But then again, this is Steve Stockman after all.
