A school in Maryland has barred a father from setting foot on campus after he threatened to disrupt classes if they kept teaching his daughter about the formation of Islamic empires in the Middle East. Because he apparently demands that his children be kept ignorant of history.
The father of a La Plata High School student has been barred from the school grounds after officials said he threatened to disrupt the school environment.
Kevin Wood was issued a no-trespass order last week after a telephone call with La Plata High Vice Principal Shannon Morris on Thursday. Wood called to air complaints regarding his daughter’s world history assignment that asked students to examine elements of the Islamic religion.
Morris and La Plata High Principal Evelyn Arnold reported to the Charles County Public Schools central office that Wood in his phone call had threatened to upset the school environment in some way Monday, according to school spokeswoman Katie O’Malley-Simpson. O’Malley-Simpson declined to elaborate on what threats Wood had made.
If the trespass order is ignored, police could be called and have the violator removed.
“We don’t take that lightly,” said O’Malley-Simpson. “We have a lot of students, and safety comes first. We don’t allow disruptions at the schools, especially if we’re forewarned of them.”
“I told her straight up ‘you could take that Muslim-loving piece of paper and shove it up your white [expletive],” Kevin Wood said in an interview. “If [students] can’t practice Christianity in school, they should not be allowed to practice Islam in school.”…
In a later phone call with Morris, Kevin Wood said he blasted the school for violating his daughter’s “constitutional rights” and said he would contact the media and “bring a [expletive]storm down on them like they’ve never seen.”
For crying out loud, they aren’t teaching them to “practice Islam,” they’re teaching about the rise of Islam in the history of the Middle East. You can’t teach a world history class well and leave that out. It’s especially important right now that we understand the history of Islam. But dumbasses like Wood prefer ignorance to knowledge. Knowledge actually threatens them.
Now watch, he’ll become the next cause celebre for the Christian right. He’s ready for his close up, Mr. Farah.
