Jay Bennish is just a Hippie

So, this world geography teacher in Colorado, Jay Bennish, thinks it’s his job to tell his students how shitty of a job the Bush administration is doing and how America is inherently evil.  A 16-year-old student named Sean Allen recorded one of Jay’s leftist rants and got the man suspended.  My hat’s off to Sean, nice work.

This story got a little more interesting today as 100 students apparently walked out over Jay Bennish’s suspension.  This leads me to wonder if these 100 students even know what the job of a teacher is.  A teacher is NOT a political activist.  It’s his job to give facts as they are, not as he wishes they’d be.  In addition to that, what the fuck does the Bush administration have to do with world geography?

Jay’s probably just smoked himself retarded.  You can’t really blame him though.  It’s gotta be a pretty miserable life ranting to 15 and 16 year old kids about how shitty the Bush administration is doing.  The only people willing to listen to psycho-babble like that are other moonbats or un-educated students, like we have in this case.  You should have been a blogger instead of a teacher Jay.  May have proven to been a more lucrative career in the end.

Slapstick Politics has some more on this, along with pictures and links to the audio.  They’ve got one picture of a girl with duct-tape over her mouth that reads “let me be heard”.  She really looks like your typical dumb girl that believes in something because her friends do.  Nobody’s silencing her, except for the duct-tape over her mouth.  You poor little under-appreciated, un-heard, little bitch.  I’m a huge free-speech supporter.  However, a public school isn’t a place for a teacher to be practicing free speech.  A public school is a place for teachers to give students facts about the world around them.

Expose The Left has an MP3 of the audio recorded by student Sean Allen.

UPDATE: Now Stop the ACLU is reporting that Jay Bennish has hired an ACLU attorney. Who’s the attorney you may ask? David Lane of course, the fine man Ward Churchill had defending him.

    Any true American who watches the above, free video will recognize the fact that Bush committed 9/11 the same as his grandfather’s client, Adolf Hitler(Google “Prescott Thyssen Auschwitz”), committed the Reichstag Fire.

    Inarguably, Bush is Hitler-redux.

    Schoolteacher Jay Bennish is simply putting forward thoughts that any who claim spiritual descent from the Jeffersonian Whig Founders of the United States of America should have been realizing right after they heard GHW Bush’s public statement confirming his “inability” to recall his whereabouts upon hearing of President Kennedy’s assassination: W’s only “qualification” for office.

    Death for Treason

  2. Concerning the girl with the tape on her mouth… since when did freedom of speech become freedom to be heard? Somebody needs to teach this chick (teach? HA!) the first ammendment does not mean anyone has to listen to what you have to say…. unless of course you would get in trouble if you tried to leave class (captive audience). And like you said T, she would fall right in with the cool crowd when it came time to shout down and chant slogans at any opposing view.

  3. Seems to me she’s execising her freedom of speech by protesting. Maybe I got that wrong though. I did vote for Bush after all.


  4. Right Fiar. My point is she doesn’t know why. And she most likely has no clue that what her teacher was doing doesn’t provide the opportunity for students to analyze the facts and come to a conclusion on their own. He’s just telling them his own opinions which aren’t even relevant to the class.

  5. Funny how the left is the first to accuse the right of acting like nazis when they are out there trying to indoctrinate American youth into a political ideology. From the communist party schools in both the old Russia and the present china to the Hitlerjungen (eerie isn’t it?) the socialists always target the impressionable youth who they see as weak enough to blindly accept what they tell them.

  6. Liberalism is a mental disorder. This teacher takes it up the cornhole sideways, and students are forced to listen to him. It’s just incredible how the communists rant and rave over a conservative exercising his “freedom of speech”, then hypocritically applaud another bleeding heart.

  7. why does jay bennish have to be considered anti-us -for opening up the eyes of people-

  8. Jay bennish wasn’t out of line, just made some really GOOD points, especially about Isreal. My hat’s off to Jay.

  9. The first amendment is a right that was given to all Americans through the Bill of Rights, and Jay Bennish, geography teacher, has recently lost those rights by speaking his mind and trying to provoke the thoughts of his students in the classroom.
    Jay Bennish, from Overland High School in Cherry Creek School District, was sent on a paid leave because he violated the district rule that teachers must present balancing viewpoints in the classroom, according to FoxNews.com.
    Bennish has received media attention for drawing connections between George W. Bush’s State of the Union speech and “things that Adolf Hitler used to say” according to FoxNews.com.
    Even though Bennish has obvious liberal views, and needs to illustrate the opposing viewpoints, he is simply stating his opinion and using his freedom of speech to represent his political views.
    In school, teachers usually have discussions within the classroom with participation from students. From the recording taped by his student, Sean Allen, on 9news.com Bennish stated that he “wanted to discuss a few things about the State of the Union.”
    Bennish was discussing what Bush said about the war in Iraq, nuclear weapons, democracy, and similar speaking tactics that Hitler also used, according to CNN.com, but the main discussion was on the generalization of politics.
    Both students and teachers should be allowed to discuss politics in the classroom, because it is impossible to teach and not touch on politics and the government. Unlike the separation of church and state, political views and government are not separated; we should be allowed to share our opinions in public schools.
    Even though Bennish could have demonstrated his views to his class in a more constructive manner, it is important to consider freedom of speech.
    By stimulating the minds of many students, we are helping students think and establish political views and thoughts in a world in which politics are not crucially important.
    Bennish stated that his words thoughts were an opinion and trying to provoke the student’s thought, according an interview with Rocky Mountain News. Bennish did not include the opposing opinion, but to share your opinion does not mean to include the differing view as well.
    Bennish was dempnstrating his right to practice free speech, and even though it was in a classroom, that right should not be taken away.
