The idea is not evil, it is just stupid! How are 6th graders supposed to understand the historical and contemporary differences between communism and socialism, and the multiple branches of each? Even educated adults cannot come to agreement on definitions.

Liberals are evil and they never stop.

According to the website txcscopereview.com, a lesson plan for 6th graders in government schools reads as follows:

Notice socialist/communist nations use symbolism on their flags representing various aspects of their economic system. Imagine a new socialist nation is creating a flag and you have been put in charge of creating a flag. Use symbolism to represent aspects of socialism/communism on your flag. What kind of symbolism/colors would you use?

Texas legislators looked none too kindly on this revelation as they questioned the curriculum’s creators at a...
