So This Is What Junior's Learning in School, Huh??
I found this on Zebra Report:
Student Gets "A" for an Art Project on Bush & Hitler
Jeffrey Eden devised his award-winning project less than 30 minutes after his high-school art teacher asked him to express a thought or two in a three-dimensional way. So, in the wake of last year's polarizing election and the war in Iraq, the 17-year-old built an abstract scene comparing President Bush's war policies with Adolf Hitler's pillage of Europe. The student's diorama-like assemblage juxtaposes Hitler quotes with Bush statements, Nazi swastikas with American flags, desert-colored toy soldiers with olive plastic figures. And so on. Eden said he's trying to point out certain similarities between the U.S.-led war in Iraq and the German blitzkrieg - without actually equating Hitler to Bush.
Hey, Kid,...you're #1 in my book!
Gindy made a pointed reply to this and I have countered:
"It is pretty bad that a teacher can't tell the difference between the Nazi era and America's war on terrorism. There are very few (if any) true similarities."
"But, Gindy,..to answer your reply:
The teacher CAN tell the difference! Most teachers these days are left-of-center and probably went out of their way to try to indoctrinate their students to the evils of GWB!
From personal experience, here in Pennsylvania, most public school teachers (and NEA members) wore black on Inauguration day this year to protest GWB's victory."
