Death of Free Speech: Superintendent Warns Against ‘Anti-Obama’ Comments

Posted on January 19, 2009. Filed under: Education Idiocy, Liberal Idiots, Media Bias, Obama, Politicians, Politics |

Are you kidding me? This is SO HYPOCRITICAL!!!! Over the last 8 years I don’t recall any schools telling students they couldn’t make ‘anti-Bush’ comments. In fact, the teachers themselves have been accused of ranting against Bush!! Yet now that Obama is in power there is to be no talking out against the President?? UNBELIEVABLE!! Once again the libs want free speech ONLY for their side!! This just infuriates me!!

Mason school officials said they are taking a proactive educational approach in advance of next week’s planned Inauguration Day activities.

“Inappropriate comments that may make other students, staff or families feel unwelcome or uncomfortable in school or on the bus will not be tolerated,” Superintendent Kevin Bright said in an e-mail sent to parents Monday, Jan. 12.

The district, he said, expects students and staff to show respect for President-elect Obama and the incoming administration, as well as President Bush and the outgoing administration, and recognize that “while the election is a competitive process, our nation’s greatness is displayed when all sides come together for a united country.”

Jeff Schlaeger, Mason High School’s psychologist, said “inappropriate comments” occurred around election week when doctored pictures of Obama appeared at the school, including “derogatory caricatures” of him dressed like a terrorist and signs that read “Obama ’08/Biden ’09.”

“There were groups of students that were worked up over the results of the election,” said Schlaeger, who is a member of the district’s racial equity committee and curriculum organizer for MHS Freshman Diversity Week.

Clearly, you misunderstand the school’s concern here. The “inappropriate comments” made were racial slurs and caricatures. The intention of the censorship is to decrease the chances of conflicts between students of race and/or political beliefs. The ban was issued for both sides, no derogatory or degrading comments about either Bush or Obama so that they won’t have issues in the school on inauguration.

OH there’s no misunderstanding… it is crystal CLEAR and even thou i don’t like this i kind of love the fact that i knew it was coming…
