MIDDLE SCHOOL YEARBOOK LIST COMPARES HITLER AND BIN LADEN TO…GEORGE W. BUSH
theblaze.com ^ | 06/02/2011 | Billy Hallowell

Posted on 06/02/2011 4:09:10 AM PDT by massmike

A quasi-scandal has broken out at Arkansas’ Russellville Middle School. The school’s yearbook featured a list of the “Top 5 Worst People of All Time.” Some of the world’s most horrific murderers and maniacs were included: Adolph Hitler, Osama Bin Laden, Charles Manson…

Few people would argue that these individuals don’t deserve a spot on that roster. Each went on murderous rampages and were, arguably, mentally-imbalanced.

However, it‘s the list’s last two names that are causing a stir: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. The former president and vice-president don’t seem to share many characteristics with the other men they were clumped with.

Once the yearbooks were printed, the district attempted to remedy the alleged oversight. KLRT-TVhas more:

Superintendent Randall Williams calls the list “an oversight.” Parents caught it after the yearbooks were printed. The district’s solution was to cover the list with tape. It didn’t work.

“Really?” said Williams when told the tape could be pulled off. “Well that’s disappointing because the yearbook supplier told us this was a definite fix.”

There’s no word yet on potential disciplinary measures for the teacher responsible for managing the yearbook’s production process, though the principal maintains that it was an accident.

Garbage in...Garbage out..U.S. Public Schools, and G.W. Bush channeled billions and billions of dollars to fix the problems and they don’t even appreciate it.

Keep in mind that middle school is 5th and 6th grade, meaning 10 and 11 year olds (for whom would’ve been 7 or 8 when Dubya and Cheney LEFT office, far too young to have a coherent or logical opinion of that administration... and at 10 or 11, STILL too young). The teacher (and principal) should be fired for this.

I would demand my money back.

This is just more proof that liberalism is a mental disease. Any teacher that would put their political leanings in a book that is supposed to be memorabila for the students is a very sick and immature person and probably shouldn't be left alone with children in the first place.

Agreed, but these little “skulls full of mush” as Rush Limbaugh accurately refers to them, have been soaking it in from their liberal parents for a long time.

Their little brains are like sponges...they hear the vilification at home and can parrot it with all the context and feeling of their parents.

And with all the intellectual depth of their parents...

The administration of the school - particularly the Principal and Year Book adviser...

On the positive side, they at least think that Hitler is worse than Bush (most Liberals think its the other way around!)

I agree it is a mental disorder.

Likely, the kids who were on the "yearbook committee" put it in, and the teacher who had oversight and should have provided adult guidance was doing one of two things: picking their nose with one hand while their opposing thumb was jammed firmly up their anus, or...they saw it and approved wholeheartedly.

Either way, they should hang (speaking figuratively, job-wise)

Just imagine if this had been a middle school yearbook that had Barack Obama and Joe Biden or Nancy Pelosi on the list after Hitler and Bin Laden. The teacher would be gone, gone, gone, as would the principal, and there would be stories about the kids on the yearbook committee being the next Columbine perpetrators while their parents would be pilloried as right-wing extremists, tea party members or worse. They would be called racist, they and their kids would have to go to sensitivity training, and there might even be visits from The Department of Youth Services.

This county (Pope, AR) voted over 70% for McCain in ‘08, so I doubt there are many parents spewing the far-left line to their progeny in those parts. The teachers, on the other hand...

saying we’re outraged isn’t enough. they already had their shot and the bs will remain in the skulls full of mush for a very long time. and it’s not just the books. the teachers promote this bs as well.

we must demand... DEMAND... that these schools stop receiving federal funding.

if they need money, go beg the DNC or hollywood. i’d have to be a freakin idiot to continue paying to be kicking in the gnads daily

**ALL** government owned and run schools in this nation are socialist-funded, GODLESS in their entire worldview, and managed by a voting mob collective. The generations of American voters who have attended these schools have learned to be comfortable with socialism, collectivism, and have learned to think and reason godlessly. They must learn to think godlessly merely to cooperate with the classroom indoctrination ( Oops! “instruction”).

Any parent who does not understand this is either stupid or delusional. The teacher responsible for this yearbook is merely a product of many years of an intensely godless, socialist, and collectivist experience ( misnamed “education’) Like a fish in water the yearbook supervisor can't even see the socialism, godlessness, and collectivism that he eats, sleeps, and inhales everyday minute of every day.

Oh!....And there has never been a golden age of government schooling. They have **always** been socialist funded and managed by the people's voting mob collective. While at first they offered up a generic and lukewarm Protestantism, by my grandmother's day ( born 1894) they were secular with a sprinkle of prayer. By the 1960’s they were already pushing the edges of social norms and were utterly godless!

Woodrow Wilson at the turn of the last century wasn't an accident!

Franklin D. Roosevelt wasn't an accident!

Obama and the coming Death Panels are not an accident. They were the plan of government schooling by the progressives from the very beginning of government schooling in the mid-1800s to early 1900s.

So?....How will that help? Huh?

The teachers and administration have been thoroughly indoctrinated in Marxism. The schools are still socialist-funded and collectivist managed by the voting mob. They are still GODLESS!

Even if school districts were the size of a suburban subdivision they would still be socialist-funded, collectivist managed, and godless or ( at best) lukewarm in their religious worldview,

Oh...Please remember that our earliest socialist and collectivist government schools ( mid-1800s to early 1900s) offered up a generic and lukewarm Protestantism. What did this teach children? It taught them to be lukewarm and generic about their religion! What does Christ do with the lukewarm? He spits them out of His mouth!

The George W. Bush and Dick Cheney adminstration did more damage to our Republic than we are ready to admit, by the act of allowing an illegal alien to take possession of the oval office. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney had top know obama was not legal yet they turned the keys of power over to him.

You can hide your head in the sand all you want, but George W. Bush and Dick Cheney had to know about obama, and they did nothing to stop him, as a result, our nation is all but destroyed.

I agree with the year book, the George W. Bush and Dick Cheney administration will go down in history as the nail that closed the top on the coffin of the Republic.

First - Why is a yearbook being produced for 10 yr olds?
Second - Why is a list of the world’s worse people in a yearbook for 10 yr olds?
Third - This is categorically not a mistake. It is a vulgarity, an obscenity and a vicious slander.
Fourth - The Bible says sometyhing about removing an eye if it offends. Removing the page would have gone (largely) unnoticed and been a successful resolution. Taping over the offense only brings attention to the ugliness it promotes.
Fifth - The children must receive immediate and thorough remedial education. Teaching them about people like Stalin and Mao who destroyed generations of children by brainwashing them to hate freedom fighters like Bush and Cheney would be a good start.
Sixth - And most important, this can not stand. This is an offense against civil society. The perpetrators must be severely brought to task and the offense must be thoroughly overcome.

Come on folks - Why is this even considered “news”? The yearbook teacher is humiliated she missed it. The kids got the list off some web site and — middle school is what, 6th, 7th & 8th grade? The kids are likely clueless.

We know the truth about Bush & Cheney. The outrage being expressed by some is a bit over the top. The *ONLY* reason this is news is because some lib reporter knows it will troll some conservatives into hyperventilating.

Just ignore it. It is just a stupid school-kid prank that ranks somewhere around fart jokes and should receive no more attention than that.

“Why is a list of the world’s worst people in a yearbook for 10 yr olds?”

I was hoping someone would pick up on this. Why indeed? And not just for ten year olds, but for anyone? What connection does such a list have to do with school memories? Is this “Yearbook According to Keith Olbermann?” Yearbooks should stick to the positive, why encourage negativity?

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

Nevertheless, it is not appropriate for a yearbook. Yearbooks ought not to be platforms for pushing political agendas.

Assuming there was negligible voter fraud, the American people allowed Obama to be elected, not Bush and Cheney. It would've been far worse for our nation for a sitting President to deny a "rightfully elected" person the office, based on an assertion of fraud.

Too often as a nation, we blame "the government" as if the government is a separate entity. The government derives its power from "the people," rightly or wrongly, and the government reflects its people's values, rightly or wrongly.

Incidently, in spite of this miserable person called the president, if the voters realize their miserable selection change will come. Don’t blame bush, only imbecile liberals do, unless of course you are one.

I live in Massachusetts. I know what would happen to me for even asking that question up here.

I sent a letter to the editor of the Boston Globe back in the nineties, and to my surprise they printed it with my name and town under it. I got some amazingly nasty calls from irate liberals who looked up my number. I forget what it was even about, now.

I only stopped getting them a few years back...and the Globe never printed any more of the letters I sent to them after that, so I stopped...:)

LOL...I am sure I am on a list somewhere in the PRM (People’s Republic of Massachusetts)

kcvl, where is this school located?

Russellville is in the NC/NW part of AR and the state's sole nuclear power plant is located there. It's conservative territory.

Something I've noticed with incidents like this in AR communities (this incident, the ten year old leading the "Pride Parade" in Fayetteville last year, among other incidents) is that these communities have a State University. Could this be the common denominator?

That teacher needs to be fired immediately.

Agreed.
