Darwin was a hook-nosed Jew...
It turns out America is not the only country that has to deal with uber religious school boards handing out biased creationist material. Turkey is usually the number one country in the world that rejects evolution on various polls. That's why it's no surprise that the Istanbul school district recently handed out books to over a thousand children that claimed Darwin was a "hook-nosed Jew who kept the company of monkeys." When teachers protested the books, the school district--just like their American counterparts--claimed they didn't know the books said that. Cough...BULLSHIT!...cough. You can read about it here:

Scientific American picked up the story as well. The author of the article is one funny bastard:

Oy vay! Weeping

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

It's not bad enough that they don't want to know the real facts about evolution, but the bigotry is sickening. Dodgy

Awwww crud, are we going to start discriminating against hook noses now?

I can't keep up with all the minorities I'm supposed to spit on. Is there a discrimination class I can take, maybe even get a certification in it?

...
You call me misbeliever, cut-throat dog,
And spit upon my Jewish gaberdine,
And all for use of that which is mine own.
Well then, it now appears you need my help;
Go to, then; you come to me, and you say
'Shylock, we would have moneys.' You say so-
You that did void your rheum upon my beard
And foot me as you spurn a stranger cur
Over your threshold; moneys is your suit.
What should I say to you? Should I not say
'Hath a dog money? Is it possible
A cur can lend three thousand ducats?' Or
Shall I bend low and, in a bondman's key,
With bated breath and whisp'ring humbleness,
Say this:
'Fair sir, you spit on me on Wednesday last,
You spurn'd me such a day; another time
You call'd me dog; and for these courtesies
I'll lend you thus much moneys'? (1.3.17)


Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs,
dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with
the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject
to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means,
warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer
as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us,
do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that.
If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility?
Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his
sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge.
The villainy you teach me, I will execute,
and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.
The Merchant of Venice —Act III, scene I

RE: Darwin was a hook-nosed Jew...
Considering the bigotry, I can't help wondering what they really mean by "kept the company of monkeys"... Consider

I would say this notion of him hanging out with monkeys came about not too long after his publication of The Descent of Man (1871), where he provides his evidence for why we evolved from an early primate species. Here is a famous political cartoon of him that came out after his book:
