A sixth grade teacher in a DC pubic school asked her students to compare George Bush to Adolph Hitler. She even went so far as to provide a Venn Diagram for the students showing the two men overlapping. The teacher will apologize but will not lose her job. Of course she won’t, no teacher ever loses a job in a public, government, school. And some people still wonder why parents choose to home school their children. More here.
Washington DC Teacher Compares George Bush To Hitler
written by Jeanine Martin September 12, 2014
Also known as Lovettsville Lady, I am a Republican activist in the wilds of western Loudoun County.
This reminded me of an incident I experienced after the massacre at Virginia Tech, where I worked for 20 years. There was talk in some quarters that the Drill Field memorial to the murdered students and faculty should include a stone for the murderer, since “he was a victim too.” When I suggested to a colleague that that blurred the line between good and evil, he erupted with “EVIL?! I’LL TELL YOU WHO’S EVIL! GEORGE BUSH! HE’S MURDERED MORE THAN 32 PEOPLE!”
This kind of disproportionate thinking in the Left would be ridiculous if it wasn’t so widespread, especially in educational circles. People on the Right do occasionally reach that level of hysteria, but not near as often, and neither do they predominate in our educational systems. Good post.
The teacher’s name should be published. Or the teacher should be required to teach a Venn diagram with the intersection between the political principles of Barack Obama and Robert Mugabe, or perhaps better yet, Mao Zedong.
Why should the teacher’s name be published? Is it because you want people to hunt her down and torment her? What possible public good comes from that information?
So you don’t think teachers should be accountable for propagandizing children. I think they are public servants, paid by citizens. I think every parent who sends a child to that school should know this teacher’s name.
That doesn’t answer the question on why you need to know the name. It also assumes that the parents at the school don’t talk among themselves.
It answers that question quite directly for anyone concerned about teachers abusing children.
What’s not being addressed by you is your priority — to protect Leftist teachers and schools, not students, and to hide abusers identities from parents.
Your morbid curiosity is disturbing. The idea that the families in the school are I the dark is outrageous. Your assumption that she is Legos is without facts. But, that us what the reades he have come to expect from you do at least you are consistent.
should have been leftist, not legos – darn smart phone screen and tiny keyboard
So many angry, bitter, young people coming here from Reddit.com. Very sad to be so young and so angry and bitter.
The use of Hitler was atrocious but the use of a Venn diagram was appropriate.
As to why parents choose to homeschool, do you have any facts behind your bitter comments or are you simply being an old bitty again
Let me guess, you found us through Reddit. Your oh-so-nice and polite comments are welcome here. Why are you so angry and bitter?
I routinely read this site and post often. I am the one who is trying to instigated the local GOP to start being nice and to think of others as much as themselves.
Welcome! Try to play nice while you’re here.
Play nice? Interesting comment on this radically conservative site where most of the regulars have no tolerance for civil discourse or alternative ways of thinking
If you were accurate and factual, there would be nothing for me to say. My issue with you posts was the dismissing of the Venn diagram. If you are going to post, be right
It’s ridiculous because there should be no comparison between Bush and Hitler.
Which is what I wrote. You inclusion if the issue with a Venn diagram and the notion that this incident was somehow connected with parents homeschooling was not needed and detracted from the horrendous mistake. As is most of your posts, you confuse the issue with tangential thoughts
and this story is only 3 days old
And your point would be…………???
