Eric Bolling, co-host of Fox News's The Five, a panel-discussion show that discusses news and issues of the day, pointed something out yesterday that apparently shook him to his core: liberal propaganda within an elementary school math textbook.
Detailing the distributive property.
A part of me feels that this is simply too silly to even bother commenting on—after all, it's a show that features talking heads making mountains out of molehills. It's a show that, all things being equal, is about as culturally important as The View.
But what gets me, beyond this ridiculous assertion that Bolling hopefully pulled out of a pile of ridiculous items just to fill some time, were the responses of the panel members:
Co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said that she goes through all of her six-year-old's homework papers, adding that she was now on "high alert after this inappropriateness!"
"So it starts in third grade [with] 'Distribute The Wealth,' and guess what happens? Through their whole educational experience they continually get indoctrinated through college," a concerned Bolling said, holding up the math sheet once again.
Co-host Dana Perino said that the assignment was probably written by an "Occupy Wall Street grad student."
Bolling made one last appeal to parents to check their children's textbooks, particularly their history books. He said he was once looking through his child's history textbook and read a section on the war in Iraq. "They were very, very liberally biased, saying George Bush went in there because he heard there were weapons of mass destruction and they were never found. It was a very liberal bias to the history books," Bolling said.
Considering that the CIA admitted that we entered Iraq under bad intelligence regarding WMDs, it might be safe to admit that history has a liberal bias in this case.
