“Irony and More ‘1984’” at Progressive Daily Beacon talks about the recent incident of Jay Bennish, a Colorado high school teacher who was suspended for having the temerity to notice rhetorical similarities between Dubya’s “State of the Union” speech and some of Hitler’s orations.
The LA Times notes that, after commenting about Bush’s foreign policy, Bennish told the students:
"I'm not implying in any way you should agree with me …. What I'm trying to do is to get you to … think about these issues more in depth."
No wonder David Horowitz and the other wingnuts are so worried about left-wing indoctrination in the classroom; Bennish sounds like a real enemy of free inquiry and independent thinking.
