Activist Teacher Exposed
One would think that if you sent your child to school and they had to take world geography, that they would actually be learning about geography. Well not so on March 2nd in Colorado's Overland High School, where world geography teacher Jay Bennish was suspended with pay for remarks caught on tape by sophomore Sean Allen. About a 150 students walk out in protest of the teachers suspension. The teacher who caught on tape rants about President Bush, comparing him to Adolf Hitler, that the United States is the most violent country in the world. He try's to justify the 9/11 attacks, compares our flag with that of the Nazi's. In one such rant about President Bush he states,"He started off his speech talking about how America should be the country that dominates the world. That we have been blessed essentially by God to have the most civilized, most advanced, best system and that it is our duty as Americans to use the military to go out into the world and make the whole world like us." If this is the state of our schools and the mindset of the ones who are teaching the youth of this country than we are in serious trouble. The 16yr old student who brought this to national attention has since received threats because of it, which also shows the level of brainwashing that this teacher and his ilk have accomplished. In a interview on Fox's Hannity and Colmes, Sean stated that only about 20% of class was ever about geography, the rest of the time was devoted to the personal politics of the teacher. The school has suspended the teacher for the remarks he made, but the bigger question is why he isn't being fired for the obvious lack of just doing his job. He even goes to far as to imply that the CIA want to kill innocent people. Things of this nature are very serious and as a student they rely on there teachers to give them correct and un biased information. Obviously this is not happening, fortunately for us we have brave young men like Sean Allen who stand up and voice opposition when they know the truth is not being told. Maybe stories like this will make the teachers think twice about using taxpayers dollars to try and brainwash and preach to the students they are suppose to be teaching.
