Meanwhile In Pennsylvania - Question A Teacher's Liberal Bias, Get Slandered

It used to be liberals were all about "Question Authority".

Now that they are the authority, not so much.

[Josh] Barry, who said he is a registered independent, read the story and then read a list of questions his daughter was required to answer and he immediately determined the assignment was “grossly slanted.”

The worksheet included questions like “To what issue do House Republican leaders insist on tying the federal budget?” and “Whom do you hold most responsible for the government shutdown?”

Barry fired off letters complaining about the assignment to his daughter’s teacher as well as the school board. But a few days later, he was shocked to discover that the head of the local teacher’s union was making calls around town – asking if he was a neo-Nazi.

So this union head is slandering a parent to multiple people with insinuations that he's a neo-Nazi for daring to question the assignment.

There's a rather bizarre aspect to the slanderous, not to mention off-the-wall and inappropriate claim that Barry is a neo-Nazi:

After all Barry is not only Jewish, but is married to a half-black lady. Not your typical neo-Nazi material by any means.

Fox News: Jewish dad questions homework assignment, gets investigated for being a 'neo-Nazi'

Apparently, daring to question liberal orthodoxy in the classroom gets the neo-Nazi card pulled on you in Pennsylvania. Thank goodness they didn't pull out the big guns, like the "Racist" card or even worse the "Tea=Partier" card.

Methinks Cydnee Cohen, the president of the East Pennsboro Education Association owes Mr. Barry one heckuva very public and lengthy apology.

And people wonder why homeschooling is on the rise in this country.

"We are all about diversity (as long as we agree with it) and freedom (as long as you do what we say)."

Scott: Yes indeed, and these teacher union types would like to squash that if they could.

PH: Exactly so. They're all about tolerance as long as you do and believe in and only in everything they believe and tolerate. They certainly cannot tolerate dissent from their tolerant worldview.
