Quote# 83492

Be careful. One of their “charter school” tricks is to hide communist propagandist code in advanced mathematics. As soon as you stop understanding your granddaughter’s math homework (whether that’s at the algebra, geometry, trigonometry, calculus, or even the long-division level) you need to really ramp up the vigilance!

Jared Loughner has computer access again?

The article and every other comment are equally paranoid about it. It must have been hard to pick a quote.

Wow you are a nutjob. You can't hide communist propaganda in mathematics; that would require changing the very nature of reality. I was interested in mathematics right up until college, and I am not, nor have I ever been, a member of the Communist Party. So there.

What would communist propaganda in mathematics even look like?

Would it be something like:

a^2 + b^2 = Chairman Mao ?

If Sergi has 27 turnips and Demitri has 13 turnips, how many turnips must they share with the community to ensure prosperity for all?

Answer: 40 turnips.

Comrades! It seems our plans to destroy the world with calculus have been uncovered. Let us flee to the glorious motherland in our potato fueled ushankas!

See, I knew there was a reason I was shit at maths.

8/29/2011 3:14:47 PM

I thought math was a product of satan?

8/29/2011 3:21:25 PM


This is the most perfect excuse to never take Geometry class again. :D

Erm... I thought wingnuts loved charter schools, because they suck tax dollars away from traditional public schools, and aren't accountable to the local school board.

Says the man with who has chosen to be named after a piece of kit that requires quite a lot of mathematics to use and manufacture. Comrade commissar, can you tell what to do with this anti-intellectual fascist?

8/29/2011 4:36:21 PM


My goodness that is stupid.

In Soviet Russia, vigilance ramps you up!

No, it just means you're uneducated, or stupid, or both. Can't blame this one on the Reds. Sorry.

I really can't wait till the Christian math movement kicks-off. That should be fun to watch.

"The Blaze" is Glenn Beck's website. Why, oh why am I not surprised.


I wouldn't be so sure about that. I've always known deep down inside that someday, this

Will inevitably lead to this.

"For the glory of Lenin, we build airships!!"

And we plot parabolic arcs! Muahahahaha! The capitalist pigs do not stand a chance, dear comerades!

8/29/2011 11:21:21 PM


Or maybe your granddaughter's just smarter than you.

@veras: an alternate answer is possible.

overthrow the ruling class and spread the spoils of war in an equalitarian fashion. once those have run out, then you share the turnips of all the comrades

8/30/2011 2:43:29 AM


If you don't understand it then how are you going to understand the propaganda hiding behind the symbols?

Do you have to play the word problem backwards?

8/30/2011 3:31:48 AM

Comrade Potatovich

Heh heh. Living in an post-Communist country, I've seen quite a lot of Communist-era Math books.While most of the problems in them were full of working class imagery, there was nary any propaganda in them.The history books, on the other hand...

By the time a girl is learning calculus, her parents should trust her with her own homework anyway.

8/30/2011 3:52:12 AM



*throws glasses onto desk*

No fucking way!


"Durr... me stupid, must be conspiracy!"

8/30/2011 4:09:36 AM

Well, calculus starts with the letter 'c', as does 'communist', 'cccp' and 'china', to name a few.

Also, noone with a name like Liebniz could possibly be a god fearing westerner...

I wonder if his Capitalist Calculator told him about the Communist Propaganda hidden in that difficult 2+2=x problem?

But he's wrong about long division, it isn't Communist, it's Socialist.
