Stop The Presses: Long Hair Equates Bush to Hitler! March 6, 2006Posted by Zack W. Handley in General Musings, Politics.
A HIGH-SCHOOL geography teacher in Colorado has been put on leave after
a 16-year-old pupil recorded him comparing George Bush to Hitler.
Sean Allen, 16, who attends a suburban high school outside Denver,
has made headlines across the country by recording the teacher
lambasting President Bush.
“Sounds a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler used to say,”
Jay Bennish told his class. “We’re the only ones who are right,
everyone else is backward and our job is to conquer the world.”
Mr. Bennish called the US “probably the single most violent nation on
Earth”, saying that it had committed more than 7,000 “terrorist
sabotage acts” against Cuba. But he told pupils that they were free to
disagree with him.
Now I don’t know about you, but I don’t want this guy teaching anything to my children except reading out of a district supplied text book and syllabus.
Update: I say “long hair” in a playful curmudeonly way…I am just jealous cuz that look is so right now;-)
