Fox "News" Claims that Algebra Classes Are a Conspiracy of Liberal Indoctrination

They’re trolling us now, right? RIGHT?

"But even worse is the way some textbooks are pushing the liberal agenda," Fox News host [Eric Bolling] explained, pointing to an algebra worksheet that Scholastic says gives students "[i]nsight into the distributive property as it applies to multiplication."

"Distribute the wealth!" Bolling exclaimed, reading the worksheet. "Distribute the wealth with the lovely rich girl with a big ole bag of money, handing some money out." Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle explained that the algebra worksheet had put her on "high alert" for the liberal agenda in her 6-year-old son’s curriculum.

DISTRIBUTING THE WEALTH? Oh, it’s just a math lesson though… taught by leftist indoctrination centers!


For the record, here’s the worksheet. So if it were apples and a first grade class, would it then be teaching them to rely on handouts for food like FOOD STAMPS OMG instead of pulling themselves up by their bootstraps? 

Here’s a Fox News math lesson:

Teacher: “If I have three apples, and I give Jimmy one apple, how many do I have left?”
Eric Bolling: “Why doesn’t Jimmy have his own apples? Why can’t he be responsible for himself?”
Kimberly Guilfoyle: “YEAH! He should bring his own!”
Teacher: “It’s just an example, folks. He uh, didn’t have one because his parents were out. Now let’s continue with —”
Dana Perino: "— Why don’t they have apples? Because they spent all their welfare on DRUGS and now JIMMMY expects a HANDOUT?!"
Teacher: ”*sigh* Class dismissed…”
Greg Gutfield: “Oh, now you’re starting a leftist ‘class war’ and saying we shouldn’t have class? MARXIST!”

Yep, that’s exactly how it would go.

The film is very entertaining. It hits on all the emotional topics; love, war, greed, fear, class warfare, corruption, cronyism all up there on the screen. There was even a teaching moment for our family on the ride home. I sparked up a conversation with [my son] Eric Chase about the central themes of the film; an out of control government so powerful, they’re able to demand fight to the death televised hunger games. And the very important sub theme of hope.

Um, Eric?
