Big Government ^ | May 20, 2012 | Ben Shapiro

A YouTube video uploaded on Monday afternoon apparently shows a schoolteacher from the Rowan-Salisbury school district in North Carolina informing a student that failing to be respectful of President Obama is a criminal offense.

The video shows a classroom discussion about the Washington Post hit piece about Mitt Romney bullying a kid some five decades ago. One student says, “Didn’t Obama bully someone though?” The teacher says: “Not to my knowledge.” The student then cites the fact that Obama, in Dreams from My Father, admits to shoving a little girl. “Stop, no, because there is no comparison,” screams the teacher. Romney is “running for president. Obama is the president.”

A through examination of this teachers education will reveal Bill Ayers finger prints. He was the head of the American educators association for many years. Their avowed purpose was to nurture a Marxist mind set in those teachers they could subvert. Those teachers where then directed to do the same to their students. Weaken or destroy our laws, our constitution, our churches and the political process.

This true. Everyone should realize that he may be, very mistakenly, our pResident now. But that doesn’t, or shouldn’t give him the ideological advantage during this campaign, even though he is egregiously abusing his pResidential privilege.

He should be ruthlessly vetted (this time), and he should be belittled as much as possible IMHO. I don’t care if that sounds racist, or will be called racist. The real citizens of this country will applaud it.

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.

While the 'bullying' story first 'hit'; it was soon after; discounted; as no one could verify what the young Obama supporter/2008 Obama Campaign worker reported. It was debunked so, it appeared.

Did I miss something? Did Mitt's apology for what he did not recall (and bad white flag; if it was that); confirm further, this story had 'legs'? (Then feet wearing Nike's. . .)

Is their some legitimacy still carrying this story - or not?

This vile black bitch needs to be FIRED and NEVER allowed in a classroom again for the rest of her miserable life.

What kind of idiotic system would give an imbecile like this a teaching degree?
She ought to be handing out the chicken nuggets at McDonalds for a living instead.

Wow! What a piece of work this idiot teacher is. Moonbat is to kind. She is going to get some fallout for this. The mindset is so totalitarian. I couldn’t watch more than half of it.

Was that post sarcasm? JUVIE for an incident that never happened?

Here are the facts.

Family: Story about Romney prank on brother 'factually incorrect,' politically motivated

The family of the late classmate whom Mitt Romney allegedly bullied in high school said Friday the portrayal of their brother in new media reports is "factually incorrect" and that they are "aggrieved that he would be used to further a political agenda."

The family also said in the public statement that they would make no further public comment on the matter.

A Washington Post story Thursday states Romney and at least one other high school classmate had held down John Lauber, who was presumed to be gay, and cut off his long, bleached-blond hair.

Christine Lauber, his older sister, later told ABC News she was at college when the incident was said to have occurred, while her brother and Romney attended high school at the Cranbrook School in Bloomfield, Mich.

Romney, the likely GOP presidential nominee, has apologized for what he described as "hijinks and pranks during high school."

Romney told Fox News Radio that he doesn't recall that specific incident, which was said to have occurred in 1965, and that he certainly did not know the student was gay.

"I don't remember that incident," he said. "And I'll tell you I certainly don't believe that I ... thought the fellow was homosexual. That was the furthest thing from our minds back in the 1960s, so that was not the case."

Lauber reportedly died of liver cancer in 2004.

Christine Lauber of South Bend, Ind., said earlier that if her brother were alive “he would be furious” about the story.

She told ABC her brother was a “very unusual person.”

“He didn’t care about running with the peer group,” she said. “What’s wrong with that?"

“Even if it did happen, John probably wouldn’t have said anything,” she Lauber added.

Got some good news and some bad news for you.

First the good news.

You aren't a paranoid schizophrenic.

Now the bad news.

There really is a giant squirrel after you.

This so-called teacher is a blithering, screaming, ignoramus. The kid is making perfectly logical statements and not backing down at all.

And where did she come up with the notion that Romney (wannabe) and Obama (already is) must be discussed in different terms (no ‘disrespecting’ Obama).

And this nonsense went on for nine minutes, round and round in a circle.

But I’m really coming to the conclusion that something has gone very wrong with our culture.


Oh, most definitely.

“Actually there is no comparision...”

Wow! You really need to get your thoughts sorted out before you post. Your comment is a complete train wreck.

What this parent doesn’t understand, is that the teacher isn’t acting “unprofessional” here, this is exactly what they are trained to do. Anyone who departs from their line is isolated, used as a punching bag, and made to look extreme, while the teacher masquerades as reasonable. This is the purpose of group study, “facilitated” discussion, etc. Talk about bullying, this is it. See “Delphi Tecnique” or Alinsky method for numerous examples. Also used extensively at things like school board meetings, city councils, corporations, etc. Where do you think all that “think tank” institute for “social research” money goes?
