STUDENT IN CALIFORNIA WHO FOUNDED CONSERVATIVE CLUB IS UNDER ATTACK (My Headline)
Conservative Alerts ^ | 1/03/2004 | Conservative Alerts Staffers

Posted on 01/03/2004 10:59:02 AM PST by JesseHousman

According to a recent article in the Washington Times, a high school student in California who recently founded the 50-member "Conservative Club" at his school, is under attack by the school's liberal faculty and administration, as well as student body members.

The student, Tim Bueler, "said he had received threats from other students after writing an article for the club newsletter calling for a crackdown on illegal immigration."

What was the school administration's response? "His principal and a campus police officer suggested that he stay home from his California high school for a few days."

Bueler says his club's staunch conservative views (the club has hosted speakers from groups like Eagle Forum and the National Rifle Association) inspired threats from which teachers have refused to protect him. He also reports that faculty members stand by and do nothing to help him when these threats occur.

Some FACULTY members even started a public campaign against his group; one teacher called Tim "a Nazi," while another described the club as "a bunch of bigots." In a parody of the club's newsletter, biology teacher Mark Alton called on students to "take a stand against the neoconservative wing- nuts who call themselves Americans."

Forty school staff members signed a letter, co-authored by Alton, to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat newspaper opposing Bueler's group's conservative statements; Alton (a TEACHER) stated, "What bothers me is the extreme views that border on racism or homophobia." This, about a club that includes membership of female students and Latinos and other minorities.

Well, so much for free speech in American high schools -- at least, if you're conservative. We need to STAND UP for these brave, patriotic students -- and we've set up a way to do just that.

Things have gotten so bad that Bueler's Conservative Club has invited students to call its "liberal assault hot line" to report whether they've been "verbally assaulted for being conservative." Bueler even thought about taking his principal's advice and leaving the school, but decided to take a stand and say, "No way." He says his inspiration to uphold American ideals comes from his late grandfather, Mark Bueler, a Pearl Harbor survivor and lifelong patriot.

We need to join him in his stance. Go to our site below to send a message to Rancho Cotate Principal Mitchell Carter, asking him to tell the teachers at his school to stop harassing Tim Bueler for his conservative beliefs, and to protect his right to express those beliefs - including the protection of his physical person:

If you prefer, you can also call Principal Carter at 707-792-4750 or fax him at 707-792-4758 to voice your opinion.

It's the same intimidation against conservative thought from sea to shining sea.

We must speak up, teach our children to respect the opinions of others.......and teach our children that respect for the law is a benefit to all.

Yes, I am dreaming!

The actions of the faculty listed here are easily construed as deliberately creating a hostile educational enviroment. The potential Federal and (possibly) state liabilities of these staff members (not to mention the school system) could easily fund substantial additional conservative activities if persued vigorously, as well as this students higer education ambitions.

We must DEMAND the offending teachers and principal be suspended pending further investigation in this civil rights violation. We must also demand the harassing and threatening students be re-educated through some form of sensitivity studies. These rabid students need to learn that conservatism is not an ugly word.

At our high school the principal told a young man not to come to school on Cinco de Mayo. This young man had an American flag sewn onto his backpack. The principal felt that the student's presence would be "disrupting" on this particular day.

MAKE AN ENDURING DIFFERENCE! INTRODUCE AN UNDEREMPLOYE theD LAWYER TO THESE STUDENTS.

Please reread post by templar and mske a permanent change in that school. Believe me, if successful, other schools will hear about it at once and change.

Edu-socialists are very attached to their assets - funny, as they are socialists. Or are they merely sociaism impaired opportunists?

What was the school administration's response? "His principal and a campus police officer suggested that he stay home from his California high school for a few days."

In other word's "you are here to learn and if you don't learn what we want you to learn, then GO HOME"!

Oh, and by the way, if asked if you are given an opportunity for promoting independent thinking then by all means answer in the affirmative.

It appears, looking at history, as though free thought with liberal minds = free thought as long as the thought coincides with their agenda.

It is very obvious who the bigots are in this affair, and who the neo-Nazis. When we allow educational crack-pots to intimidate Americans from defending their ethnic heritage and the values of the Founding Fathers, we have failed in our moral responsibility to safeguard the sacred patrimony handed down to us.

Thank you for posting this. As an Ohioan, I have little influence in California. My inclination would be to send an insulting challenge to the faculty Leftists, suggesting they choose their Golliath, and we have a little debate; but I know the breed, and there is not likely one among them who would dare face any articulate Conservative.

The campus Left, virtually everywhere, are bullies, psuedo-intellectual thugs; but challenge them on their premises, and if they cannot shout you down, they will crawl into their holes, and wait for the danger to pass. Then they come out again, and resume the bullying tactics, snearing contempt for any student who questions the wisdom of egalitarian Socialist collectivism.

The "party of tolerance" is not tolerant at all of those with conservative ideas. All deviants, however, are tolerated quite handily.

so if i get this right if you bring in a plastic green army man to school you get expelled and arrested for violating the zero tolerance policy against guns even though a plastic green army man holding a microscopic plastic gun cannaot harm anyone but if you actually threaten to beat up someone there is nothing the teacher or principle can do ?

Seeing this on the Breaking News sidebar, all in CAPS, I thought he was literally being physically attacked..

I suspect there is the distinct possibility.

Alton (a TEACHER) stated, "What bothers me is the extreme views that border on racism or homophobia."

What bothers me is the extreme hysteria fostered by Conservaphobic left-wing wacko teachers.

There's a bit more to this story. The sub host for either Glenn Beck or Rush got a call a few days ago from the teacher sponsor (who resigned as sponsor) of the student paper. She made a couple of interesting points. First, she said that the student has many supporters, both students and teachers at the school. Second, she said she is herself a conservative and supports the paper, but resigned out of principle because this young man and his parents had an agreement that all content would be reviewed by her, the sponsor, before being printed.

I thought he was literally being physically attacked right now.

This is worse, because those in authority and teachers are attacking students who appear to stand on the very values this country was founded on. They should be teaching those values, not attacking them. This is shameful - and your response is quite inappropriate!

Fearing for the safety of a child presently under attack?

No, belittling the entry because he was not being attacked physically, as if the attacks by teachers and students was no big deal.

(If that was not your intent, then forgive my outburst.)

Poly Wit,this is the first time I have seen this one posted.

I do know there have been three other articles from 3 different sources posted.

Different versions of this story have been posted.

Tempers flare over Rancho Cotate club

A Dissenting Student Hounded For His Views

Conservative Club on a Liberal Island

Take a look at the other ones, the more the better.

This is an ongoing problem which is getting national attention, as it should.

Tim Bueler has been interviewed on KSFO twice, once with Melanie Morgan on the phone, and once with Brian Sussman where Tim actually went to the studio for the interview

He will be speaking at the Third Annual Education Conference "Equipping for the Future" put on by the Eagle Forum in February.

Phyllis Schlafly will be there also.

I will be posting a thread soon to advise people of the event.
