What a dumbass ...he would have been comfortably at home in the re education camps run by the Khmer rouge in Kampuchea or the Soviet indoctrination camps in the GULAGS there or the "memorize or die" koranic terror schools.
I wonder if he includes Muslim/Commie imperialism and colonialism in his section on colonialsm.
he sourced Indymedia? BARF
No. "Open-minded" means "Ready to reject what you know for my nutty left-wing ideas." You'll note that they have no desire to be "open-minded" when it comes to conservative ideas and have no problem being quite judgemental about traditional, Judeo-Christian, or conservative ideas.
The reference to the Bush -- Hitler thing is a reference to the recording that the student made of his 20 minute rant. You can find that recording here:
The alarms should start going off when you reach "Critical Thinking." This is a code word that has everything to do with criticism, specifically of the status quo, and very little to do with actual thinking. It basically means placing a filter on everything you encounter intellectually (see "critical reading," the next entry down) that assumes that there is an oppressor/oppressed class dynamic that is inseparable from the ostensible message. When you hear somebody insisting "you're only saying that because..." you gotcha one right there.
Yeah, the radical Heritage Foundation and Cato Institute! ;-)
(But I bet "tompain.org" was actually "tompaine.com")
Yes, this is the school that had the walkout. I saw it on local TV news. It was a lark, an excuse to get out of school for a few minutes. Some of the kids were throwing gang signs, some shouted "Bush sucks" and the rest just waited until the teachers herded them back inside in time for school to start at 8:50AM. There was no actual walkout, just a "walk-about" until class time supervised by teachers, who probably organized it to support the clown of a "teacher". The media ate it up.
That's a good one.
Thank God for this kids father for catching this....
A kid in class recorded it. He will be on Hannity's show shortly and on TV tonight.
Respect must be shown to myself and fellow peers at all times
Tolerance for differences, remain open minded
Turn in all assignments at appropriate time
Complete all readings and arrive to class attentive, prepared, and willing to participate
Disregard for these rules will not be tolerated
I guess going against the establishment is OK with this dude as long as the establishment is not liberal.
I think they did have a walkout. Apparently, the creep may be popular with some students.
Isn't that tower of babble owned by the evil George Soros?
Does Soros own that?
Hey, all - if anyone's in contact with any students or alums from this guy's class, we should try to find out whether this clown was one of the propagandists who pushed "Fahrenheit 911" on his students, usually without any rebuttal or fact-finding..... I recall reading that quite a few teachers around the country were taking groups of students to that "film" possibly showing it (when it came out of DVD). It would be interesting to know if this guy allows any balance or only represents America's enemies, as would be indicated by his rant on the Bush SOU address.
