I'm a Lefty Whackadoo, and I have to agree with Robbie...this rhetoric is totally inappopriate for public school. This guy isn't a liberal, he's a jerk. He should be fired. I would accept any teacher introducing his or her opinions into a classroom in the context of fostering good debate, however, this nut job offers nothing but vitriol rantings. Whats worse is that his approach attempts to undermine the opinions of any conservative minded student in that class which is completely contrary to the ideals of freedom. He's clearly an ass.

Well, Ward Churchill is up for retirement next year. Maybe he'll move up the road.

I guess I should also add that this teacher isn't too unusual: when I was in high school, my American History teacher taught us that liberals believed in making things better for people, while conservatives believed in money and oppressing minorities. Most of us just knew enough to ignore the old harpy as best we could and read the textbook for the final.

The teacher also has his facts wrong...China is the worlds largest producer of tobacco, not the US.

Oh, come on - this has to be a hoax in the same way Paula Abdul must be high. The alternatives are just too horrible to contemplate. That photo of Jay Bennish is obviously Michael Bolton's passport photo and whoever scripted the audio has a writing job for life on The Daily Show or The Colbert Report...

Left-wing moon battery at its finest. Some one needs to tell the geography teacher that they grow tobacco in Iran.

Nice to see students fighting back.

wish I had teachers like that, might actually stop napping in class.

There is a funny post about this at HammerofTruth:

I understand that several hundred students held a protest over his being put on leave.

They stated that he did provide the other side. I couldn't help but wonder how you balance out the "Bush is Hitler" comparisons.

You balance out Bush = Hitler with Blair = Mussolini.

I suppose it's all a nice distraction from the crater that just popped up on the White House lawn... ;)

An amusing video all the same. Fire the fucker.

I homeschool my kids. My older daughter was bored in government school, and frequently read books during class time. She got into trouble for this repeatedly, but continued making straight A grades in a gifted resource class. One of her teachers saw this as a sure-fire symptom of - let's all say it together, kids -
ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER!!!
I theorized that she was reading while the teacher was reviewing , and knowing my daughter, she knew the material after the first time. This teacher insisted she was missing transitions into new material, but the test grades, homework grades, et al.- nothing but A's. Literally, one B on a science test, and all A's otherwise.
Not only did she jump to this conclusion, but after My Lovely Former Bride and I shot her theory down together, she tried it on my ex individually (BTW, I have custody, so that was a no-no). After being shot down again there, she tried me individually.
I complained to the principal about this, which ended that harrassment. So she turned her attention to my daughter. She started sending notes home for EVERY little thing, no matter how trivial.
She actually sent on note home because she spent SIX MINUTES in the restroom during instruction time. Nothing else. No prior history of this behavior. Just the six minutes. This note included a request for a P-T conference. And she took the liberty of scheduling a date and time.
This time I insisted the principal remove my daughter from this class. Then when this school year began, I removed both daughters from school and began homeschooling.

I totally support homeschooling. Just so long as it's not in blewsdawg's home.
