As reported by The Gateway Pundit, the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) became concerned about Christian-bashing Islamic materials being force-fed to teachers after being notified of a mandatory two-day training course presented by a Muslim consultant hired by Michigan’s Novi Community Schools District.
The law center “filed a FOIA request for documents related to this two-day Islamic training workshop and discovered that the teachers were being told lies about Islamic terrorism, jihad, and Sharia law,” TGP reported.
What’s more, teachers were being told by a Muslim consultant for Culture Links LLC, Huda Essa, a hijab-clad Arab woman from Dearborn, that white males are more dangerous than Islamic jihadists and terrorists.
“We found that the teachers were subjected to two days of Islamic propaganda, where Islam was glorified, Christianity disparaged, and America bashed—all funded by Novi taxpayers,” said Richard Thompson, TMLC’s president and chief counsel.
“This type of infiltration amounts to an Islamic Trojan horse within our public school systems,” he continued. “No other religion gets this kind of special treatment in our schools.”
The notion that “white males” present a bigger “terrorist threat” in the U.S. comes from mass shootings over the past several years, the majority of which have indeed been committed by young, white men. However, the vast majority of those attacks were not considered acts of domestic terrorism, so to characterize them that was is factually incorrect.

The lie has been repeated by Muslim members of Congress as well such as Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.).
As for the Muslim curriculum uncovered by TMLC, the legal group noted that over the past five years, the school district in question has not presented similar teacher-training seminars that focused on Christianity, Judaism, or any other religion — just Islam.
The center noted further in a press release:
Most disappointing was the fact that of the more than 400 teachers attending the workshop, not one teacher challenged Essa’s denigration of Christianity or attacks on America.
The legal organization reviewed scores of internal school documents as well as audio recordings of Essa’s presentation, uncovering a raft of falsehoods and errors of omission the center believes were intended to deceive course participants.
For instance, she provided “no truthful information” regarding Sharia law and jihad, which are considered some of the most important tenets of the Islamic religion. All references to terrorism were depicted as having nothing at all to do with Islam, and white Christian males were depicted as being more threatening and dangerous than Muslim extremists.
TMLC officials also found that the materials Essa presented were not celebratory of “patriotic Americans who believe in our nation’s exceptionalism,” according to the press release.
What’s more, she’s been spreading her “trash American first” propaganda to a growing list of American colleges and universities. Her client list includes professional educator associations throughout her home state of Michigan but also schools in California, Texas, Florida, Georgia, and others.
The materials are presented under the guise of ‘spreading diversity,’ but again, the curriculum is distinctly anti-American and focused only on spreading an often false view of Islam. She also believes that the Koran, the Muslim holy book, is superior to the Christian Bible, according to the law center’s review of her materials.
It’s not hard to see what the Left is attempting to do with the spread of counter-cultural materials: Destroy American traditions, undermine our founding, and — eventually — replace our republican form of government with an enslaving tyranny.
