I will take your word for it that Walsh's full account makes it clear that he was not conflating the Cuban situation with Nazi Germany, Mr. Schniper, but your description of his comments did leave me with that impression and I am glad you are able to clear that up.
This story is marred by the statement: "It reminded Walsh of 1930s Europe, when Jewish children were smuggled out of Nazi Germany to foster care in England and elsewhere," which I find to be particularly offensive and ignorant.
PacksA9 writes, "Zubeck's claim is that Klingenschmitt said 'it's better to drown gay scoutmasters than allow them to participate in Boy Scouts of America.'" curious chimes in, "Either Klingenschmidtt spoke the words he’s accused of speaking, or he didn’t."
Too bad this same courtesy is not extended to Ms. Zubeck, who never wrote the words that PacksA9 attributes to her. What she actually wrote about Klingenschmitt was, "He then cited a Bible verse saying of those who cause 'little ones to sin': 'It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.'"
Excuse me. It's Ajamian not Ajarmian. I do not know how that little 'r' snuck in there!
All the Gazette article proves is that Kemp and Ajarmian can parrot the canned Republican talking points their handlers are feeding them. Since it is painfully obvious they have no public school experience, and have not bothered to familiarize themselves with public school operations in preparation for the election, why don't they point to some of their successes in the charter schools?--if they have any.
A slate of so-called, self-styled "reformers" were elected to District 11 board several years ago. They were so incompetent they were replaced by a recall election, at great expense to the tax payer. Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
curious, as you do not believe in compensating teachers for their labor, I am not surprised at your irrational hostility towards teachers unions. Teachers have been known to reach into their own pockets to pay for classroom materials when budgets are tight. My daughter is learning from union teachers and I was educated by union teachers.
Let me tell you about non-union teachers in Georgia. I knew a very bright kid who was flunking high school math because his math teacher was a theater person. I spent one night explaining y=mx+b to him and he passed for the entire semester. He graduated from the same high school that graduated the assassin of John Lennon years earlier.
When you rail against high school graduates being ignorant, you are railing against the high school graduates who were "educated" by non-union teachers.
