State Investigation Launched After Students Dress in Burqas
by Todd Starnes
A Texas lawmaker is launching an investigation after a teacher reportedly invited female students to dress up in Islamic garb and then told her classroom they should call Muslim terrorists – freedom fighters.
State Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the senate education committee, told Fox News he is very disturbed by the photograph as well as reports that students were exposed to a story that blamed Egypt's turmoil on democracy – rather than the Muslim Brotherhood.
"Parents are very sensitive to any issue that seems to be anti-American – that blames democracy for some sort of trouble in the world," he said.
