Gulen Charter Schools Myth


Date posted: June 20, 2013

Gulen Charter Schools Myth – As parents poured into Harmony’s future school building for an information session this evening, “West Texas Patriots” members stood outside handing out fliers that encourage parents to research the school online. As CBS 7 first told you Tuesday, The Patriots believe the Harmony Schools have connections to “Radical Islam”. However, continued research of our own found that is unlikely. For example, Congressman Randy Neugebauer supports Harmony, and President George W. Bush invited Harmony Academy students to the Whitehouse in 2008.

West Texas Patriot representative, Georgia Bustamanti, couldn’t provide any source for her information.

Georgia Bustamanti: “We found this on the website.”

Beau Berman: “Which website?”

Bustamanti: “What is the name of it?”

Berman: “Do you think that maybe you should know the name of the website before you spread this information to parents who are just trying to find out about a school?”

Bustamanti: “Well… yes, probably. I will admit that.”

Visit the Patriots’ website and they provide links to personal blogs, which backup their claims about Harmony with links to other blogs, which in turn, use other blogs as their proof. A primary source is never identified on these websites either.

Beau Berman: “Who is the source that claims they’re connected to Fethullah Gulen?”

Georgia Bustamanti: “I don’t think I’m going to say that.”

Berman: “Why?”

Bustamanti: “I just don’t think I’m going to.”

Berman: “Do you know who the source is?”

Bustamanti: “I’ll sure (sic) send you an email later.”
