American-hating Liberal teacher caught on tape


Just listen to this rambling hatred of America by this liberal teacher. What is the point of this lesson?

What is the point of any of this? Oh, I know...America is evil.

Nice message to teach high school kids.

Hey liberals, this is from your mold....

Where is the outrage? Liberals, you can't show outrage for someone who is simply saying everything you think....just listen how it sounds.

Just let this run as you do something else....this guy is pissing me off more and more every minute he talks. What makes it worse is that he is a teacher and I'm sure some of these kids believe him.

THERE IS NO OTHER REASON TO HAVE THIS LESSON BUT TO BASH AMERICA....he isn't spewing Republican talking points...they are liberal talking points.

Hope you are as ashamed as I am.

Were you in the class? Do you know anything about the class, the subject, the context? Read anything about it except NewsMax?

Here's what the teacher's lawyer said:

Lane said that Bennish was just trying to get his students to think.

"He starts out every semester saying, 'I am going to throw stuff out there that I don't even necessarily believe to be true. I am just going to provoke you guys into thinking and speaking and analyzing,'" said Lane. He also said the student took the teacher's comments out of context.

"This has been going on for years in his class and no one has complained about it because this is what it's all about: (to) get these kids talking, (to) get these kids thinking, (to) get these kids debating the point," said Lane.

Possible?

Jim, listen to the tape...I listened to the whole 20 minutes...

I am sick and tired of you saying "you are reading GOP talking points" "you just say what Sean, rush and newsmax say" Knock it off...

I can say the same thing about you....where did you get this information?

What is true is that when you say things like that, you are simply taking a page out of the 40 year old liberal play book...

I wanted to talk about what the teacher said...it is appalling, it should make you sick. Not once did I hear him bring the class back to reality...

We are the greatest country in the world, we give more humanitarian aide than anyone....and yes Jim, if you don't agree with that I am saying you are a liberal America hater too...

Do you agree that we kill more innocent people than any other country?

And what educational benefit is there to have 20 minute rant saying we are the ones with all the WMD's? That we torture prisoners...there was a lot more, go listen to it, and if you still think this guy is great, move to another country...

How can liberals say they love America then constantly and consistently say things like this...and then have you agree with it.

I am a teacher Jim, I understand that you have to say and do things to get kids to think...however, 20 minute emotional tirades beating the crap out of America does nothing but try and get kids to think America is evil...just like the liberal hippies think.

It was a one sided lecture. Never did he present any other view of the world than his own. And I believe he was suspended because according to the school's teaching principles, a well rounded lesson plan must be presented. And while it's loosely based on geography, it's like teaching a cooking class how to change the oil in a car because you use the car to drive to the store to buy groceries.

Jim said...

I'm not agreeing with anything the teacher said (except maybe the part about who has the most WMDs). I'm just saying that maybe there is more to the story than the one side.

Where did I get my information? From the lawyer interviewed on the O'Reilly show and from the Denver Channel 7 News web page.

You ask how can liberals say they love America and then say things like this. But you imply that this person (if he is saying what he believes) represents liberals as a whole. That's obviously false. These views, in my opinion, are the views of a radical leftist. A radical leftist is not a liberal anymore than a radical right-winger is a conservative.

I did not in any way defend what the teacher literally said. I simply pointed out that there might be two sides to the story and to accept one without learning the entire context of the situation is a knee-jerk reaction.

The Game said...

Okay Jim,
I can totally agree with what you have just said.

If he does give the other side I can see where you are coming from...and yes, he is far left.

However, more and more of the vocal liberals are saying the stuff this guy is saying, and I'm sure many more wish they could in public. This guys talk is crazy, hate America speech...

Just remember Jim, I just agreed with you about 80% on this one...

Jim said...

Hey, I hear that! 80% must be a record. :-)
