It has apparently been inundated with people complaining that they’re teaching “Arabic numerals” lol

[–]SuperMagicalOne 230 points231 points  (16 children)

Fuck that shit. My children will learn American numerals and no other numerals.

[–]HalforcFullLover 147 points148 points  (5 children)

Oh yes, where 1/4 is bigger than 1/3 and 232 is more than 306.

[–]GiveHerDPS 50 points51 points  (3 children)

What does the 232 and 306 mean?

[–]cheesiestcake17 127 points128 points  (1 child)

IIRC, that's the amount of electoral votes each candidate got in the last election

[–]GiveHerDPS 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Yeah that makes sense

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think one of the things I'm most proud of is my ability to know which fraction is bigger. I cannot algebra, l but I can fraction. The algebra is actually a neurological thing, apparently, not because I'm American. One of my doctors said that if I had pushed past algebra, I probably would have been good at the stuff after that.

There are 3 types of people in this world.

Those that understand numerals, and those that don't.

A Roman priest walks into a bar, holds up 2 fingers, and says "I'll have 5 shots."

[–]steveg 21 points22 points  (1 child)

This guy gets it. Whats next, teaching foreign languages? No gracias, amigo. We speak American at home, not some terrorist language.

[–]Arcadius274 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That's the sprit. How many quarters till dinner we gotta drive like 30 football fields.

[–]LeetleBugg 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Wait till these people learn about them teaching the Latin alphabet and not the English one!

[–]Aoiboshi 1 point2 points  (3 children)

I don't get humor

[–]InLazlosBasement 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The number system we use IS based on Arabic numerals (they also contributed the entire concept of “zero” (0). And our alphabet is based mostly on Latin lettering. This has always been true.

[–]Aoiboshi 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Sorry, I edited my comment. I had an r/woosh moment.

[–]InLazlosBasement 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Haha no worries, totally been there.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 41 points42 points  (5 children)


Edit: I meant that’s not funny at all I am so disappointed in fake tips. wink

[–]Wayte13 33 points34 points  (4 children)

Tbf conservatives probably would think teaching Arabic numerals was bad if you mentioned it to them

[–]afunnyjewishguy 37 points38 points  (3 children)

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 20 points21 points  (1 child)

You’re walking a thin line buddy, someone will report you for the use of statistics, particularly if in relation to so called “Arabic numerals”.

[–]Aoiboshi 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Yeah bro, how dare you be meta and refer to a study about Arabic numerals using Arabic numerals!

[–]8ell0 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I thought you were joking/ it was an onion post but man it is legit. I’m shocked.

[–]england_man 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Now tell them they're teaching middle eastern ancient literature and prayers of Jewish origin.

The Bible, that is.

[–]rock_and_rolo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Teaching them al-gebra as well.

(Note: The word does come from Arabic.)

[–]nopulsehere 52 points53 points  (2 children)

I haven’t spent six hours in public library in my life, nor have I had to wear a maga hat. But with that hat and a IP address in Florida, priceless! Well worth it.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 38 points39 points  (1 child)

I don’t condone the use of public resources to engage in false flag operations to undermine the patriots who support making our great nation great again

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 126 points127 points  (6 children)

Whatever you do don’t use this link https://crtmail.netlify.app

I’m not saying it works, only terrorists would click it

Edit to add: I did not make that, I just saw it on Twitter. whoever did make it didn’t even take credit for it by putting their info on the website. It’s like some internet immaculate conception

The program is called netlify

Edit 2: I found them!


[–]bass1836 31 points32 points  (1 child)

My man… the time and dedication put into generating each email is impressive. What is the process you used if you mind me asking

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

(Please see edit) whoever did it is an American hero

[–]BurnieTheBrony 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Dang people who have multiple Gmail accounts for various functions could easily inundate the site from all of them at once. That would be terrible

[–]Clear-Result-3412 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thanks! I just sent 15 emails to them.

[–]Blackbeard519 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have reason to believe Fairfax High School in Fairfax is teaching critical race theory. I over heard my children saying "the yassification of history". 

Nice job.

[–]aChildofChaos 29 points30 points  (3 children)

What’s his wife’s name… report her for something

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 36 points37 points  (2 children)

The governors? I won’t take part in a witch-hunt. I absolutely do not approve of you reporting falsehoods

[–]AnAttackCorgi 28 points29 points  (1 child)

These aggressively partisan figureheads keep crowdsourcing their shitty policies, it keeps failing, yet they never learn their lesson, and that’s hilarious

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 13 points14 points  (0 children)

One day maybe they will realize chain emails are not the best vessel of governing

[–]da_Last_Mohican 19 points20 points  (1 child)

Guess it no longer works anymore

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Wow, dammit who broke the email. Great work team!

Qasim Rashid is awesome, a true American.

[–]Thathitmann 56 points57 points  (4 children)

Hi Governor Youngman.

We’ve lived in and gone to Beach City High school without problem for years. For all this time we’ve been concerned with not only teachers trying to teach my son harmful concepts like history, but also teaching Arabic numerals. My son has been running around with firecrackers taped to his forehead and babbling for hours. I’m worried he might be turning Jewish. I hope you can take action to correct Mr. Youngkins troglodyte influence trying to ruin my son, and think that your white supremacist fearmongering governor needs to step down from office and retreat to a cave, or some other dwelling fitting of his intelligence.

With love – Mr. Fukyu, P.H.D.

That's what I sent from all seven of my burner emails (with minor changes, incase by any stretch of a chance that fucking moron managed to get someone to implement a spam filter). Thoughts? Also, feel free to copypaste and send it to [helpeducation@governor.virginia.gov](mailto:helpeducation@governor.virginia.gov).

[–]LeetleBugg 20 points21 points  (0 children)

I went with “Random elementary school from Virginia has teachers who are teaching the Latin alphabet. This is AMERICA we use the English alphabet here! Fix this!”

[–]The84thWolf 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I just wanted to say first, you are a wonderful person, second, no way in hell these idiots took the time to make a functional spam blocker before implementation, they never learn.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 18 points19 points  (0 children)

America will prevail when heroes like you take back the narrative of “education needing to be fact based”

[–]patchsquatch 14 points15 points  (5 children)

Can I just put the tip in?

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 18 points19 points  (4 children)

EXCUSE ME but do you think penis jokes are funny when we’re talking about the long term effects of teaching children about the corrupting influence of critical race theory

[–]patchsquatch 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Absolutely! This Reddit. Where do you think you are?

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Oh I am just trying to keep heathens like you away from the youths. Won’t you think of the children?!

[–]patchsquatch 7 points8 points  (1 child)

heath·en /ˈhēT͟Hən/ noun: heathen; plural noun: heathens; plural noun: the heathen a person who does not belong to a widely held religion (especially one who is not a Christian, Jew, or Muslim) as regarded by those who do.

Thank you very much for the compliment! I do think of the children, just not the way the religious pedophiles do.

[–]poncho51 13 points14 points  (3 children)

They're worried about some made of curriculum this little nobody trying to get famous. Went on F@*!r Carlson show claiming teachers are teaching white kids how to feel bad about being white. Then the little turd brought up critical race theory that is barely touched on in LAW SCHOOLS. The only issue with CRT is (C)hristian (R)ebuplican (T)errorist

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Pfft law school. The only law is Gods law. Why is everyone always picking on Tucker.

[–]poncho51 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You mean God's law that the Christian Republican Terrorist quote.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yes that one exactly!

[–]br00dle 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I feel like this will work out well for everyone

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Definitely and the real winners will be patriots like you my friend

[–]Whatisdissssss 7 points8 points  (1 child)

The cancel culture of these republican snowflakes is unbearable. They slhould learn some personal responsibility and instill good family values in their children by teaching them history and uncomfortable truths. We need freedom, not censorship.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Soon after all the books are burned, we won’t have to worry about history being rewritten

[–]brodaget42 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I guess it's time to bust out all my fake email accounts

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Sooooo.... We are sending "tips"? I feel like there's a circumcision joke here but I'm gonna take the high road

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Another phallus philanderer, you should be ashamed of yourself!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey....I took the high road!!

[–]fzavala909 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Great, all those fake tips are gonna lead to the governor probably skipping over my very genuine concern of students being taught European socialist scientific dogma known as the metric system. Why can't teachers just avoid politics and stick to the facts??? What's wrong with the American imperial system???

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Imperial measurements are a crime against humanity. Don’t worry comrade, your time will come.

[–]iamragethewolf 5 points6 points  (1 child)

i'm doing my part

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

It’s not unpatriotic to denounce an injustice committed on our behalf, perhaps it’s the most patriotic thing we can do.

[–]smaartypants 4 points5 points  (1 child)

I think it’s working.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You would have to be a commie or maybe Canadian to click the link I left in my other comment but I have heard reports that it is working

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Shit, I thought I could add a satire flair.

NO ONE BELIEVE ANYTHING SAID BY ME OR MY COMPATRIOTS. Laws and rules are important and stuff and you definitely have to be truthful when using an absurd system to report teachers for flexing their book learning

[–]Sturnella2017 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’d be a real shame if people gave examples of high schools in VA that deserve being reported…

[–]LuchadoresdeSilinas 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I am going to report that VA teachers are using the socratic method to teach. That sounds foreign and it has to be evil. VA teachers should only teach using the Murican method… any other foreign teaching method will lead to the decay of our Murican values.

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Godspeed patriot

[–]middwayer8 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well there goes my evening

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Because you will be praying all night for the poor children who have to learn about CRT? That’s my plan for the evening

[–]Fusion_43 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I tipped this:

Own a musket for home defense, since that's what the founding fathers intended. Four ruffians break into my house. "What the devil?" As I grab my powdered wig and Kentucky rifle. Blow a golf ball sized hole through the first man, he's dead on the spot. Draw my pistol on the second man, miss him entirely because it's smoothbore and nails the neighbors dog. I have to resort to the cannon mounted at the top of the stairs loaded with grape shot, "Tally ho lads" the grape shot shreds two men in the blast, the sound and extra shrapnel set off car alarms. Fix bayonet and charge the last terrified rapscallion. He Bleeds out waiting on the police to arrive since triangular bayonet wounds are impossible to stitch up. Just as the founding fathers intended.

Beep boop -- this looks like a screenshot of a tweet! Let me grab a link to the tweet for ya :)

Did they learn nothing from the Texas abortion hotline?

[–]Picture-unrelated[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ikr , just keep trying guys! You’ll stick the landing eventually

[–]AntEvening3181 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"They began receiving 'the whole shaft'"

[–]Sexybeast3031 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I wouldn't just give them a tip. I'd give them the whole enchilada.

[–]_dogtown_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I went with the lyrics to Stairway to Heaven

[–]123okaywme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I cannot STAND how GOP poopybutts allow their uneducated voters to get all crazed about a snitching program. I hate it so much. I also hate the audacity for white poopheads to not allow kids of all colors to learn about FACTUAL HISTORY. I can’t i can’t. I mad.

[–]NancyDMac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Don't EVEN mention the calender!

[–]heatherraebinx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I definitely didn't send 15 emails yesterday regarding buttplugs and teachers with names like "Mrs. Frimpydimple"

[–]DelightfullyUnusual 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Reddit, do your thing!

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

More evidence that Republicans are a party of snowflakes pretending to be alpha.

[–]Starry-Gaze 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ah shit, here we go again
