WATCH: Conservative Florida Mom Vows to Stop Her Children From Learning About Islam and Arabic Numerals

Idiocy is alive and well in Florida. Christian Kayla Normandin is fed up of an education system that teaches her son Arabic numerals and the history of the Crusades.

Arabic numerals, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9, all numbers that we use in our everyday lives. According to Normandin, these “Ay-rabic numberals” are Muslim propaganda designed to brainwash our children.

“Now there is one whole chapter, and it’s chapter 10 that starts on page 116 and goes to 151, and it tells nothing — basically everything about Muslim civilizations and ‘she-hara’ (sic) law. You name it — it talks about it,” she explains.

With her limited understanding of world history, she glosses over the history of the Crusades, dismissing the parts that paint Christianity unfavorably.

The mom dismisses it with, “You see they’re not telling the full truth about the Crusades.”

She also downplays the importance that Muslims played in the development of education, astronomy, medicine, architecture, art, agriculture, and math.

“It even has the origin of ‘Ay-rabic’ numerals,” she read from the book. “So Eastern Muslim regions, Western Muslim regions, and Modern Western. And it shows you actually how to write ’em.”

“We need to stand up against this, y’all. Our children don’t need to be taught this. It’s not teaching them facts. It’s not teaching them truth. It’s basically telling them that this is going to be the way of life.”

Sadly, she decides that she will no longer allow her child to learn this information.

“My children aren’t going to learn this,” she explains.

About the author

    “Arabic numerals, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10”

    Seriously? “10” is not an Arabic numeral. It is two Arabic numerals (“1” and the one you leave out: “0”) put together to form a number.

    Maybe let’s work on ourselves before calling ignorant people, “ignorant.”

    • Cathryn Sykes

      Yes, a minor mistake. A pebble thrown at the “glass house.” While the woman in the video is a damn avalanche!

    • Sarasotan

      Seriously? How minor a point can you make?

      • sunshipballoons

        I don’t think it’s a minor point. The author criticizes this idiot mother for two reasons, both valid:

        1. Being a horrible racist.

        2. Being ignorant about historical details, including about arabic numerals. It seems to me that, if you’re going to make the second point, you’d want to get your own information about arabic numerals correct. I think it’s notable that the author commented and corrected his error.

        Is this the most important point in the world? No, of course not. But neither is your response, and you said *that.*

    • Eric Carriere

      Let me fix that captain, my apologies!

  • Julia Williams Walters

    This woman is an idiot!

  • Carol Clinch

    A rabs?

  • thomasbone63

    She’s a very bias, ignorant woman.

  • John Hamilton Lohnes

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is your typical GOP-TP voter. Step right up and take a good look at what 45 years of systematic ‘dumbing’ down has done to our Country.

    And they vote.

  • Paul Craven

    I don’t think her parents had any children that lived.

  • Cathryn Sykes

    You have to write it A-rabs, Carol. (Listening to this idiot is like listening to someone scrape their nails down a chalkboard. I’m still gritting my teeth.) Hey, dimwit! Want to try dividing XXI by VII? Go for it! It’s actually a simple calculation….Honest! (Stupid, ignorant, dim-witted, moronic, closed-minded, empty-brained…..there just aren’t enough words to adequately describe this CRETIN!)

    • sunshipballoons

      Obviously, this person is an idiot, but: III. It’s not too hard with small numbers like that.

  • JT Bundym

    “I pretty much did an overview of the whole entire book”…no, you skimmed ONE CHAPTER, and nitpicked the rest. Parents like this are going to be responsible for parts of this country getting dumber. 😐

  • snowflake

    ignorance is bliss. maybe she should take a history/civilization class in college and educate herself before speaking out about something she has no idea what’s she’s reading or talking about

  • labman57

    I’d love to see her try to balance her checkbook using Roman numerals.
    Or better still — binary.

  • Mischelle Sowell

    She obviously never learned them either.

  • Saun Hytche

    I know her kids are embarrassed…I am too!

  • Uncommonsense

    What an idiot. Some people should just never procreate. Here is another link to the video. https://www.facebook.com/jgy07/videos/10153288574012842/?pnref=story
