Assignment Asking Students Whether
The Holocaust Was Real Results
In Disturbing Answers And Grades

Independent Journal Review, by Caroline Schaeffer

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/14/2014 12:57:02 PM

Approximately 2,000 eighth graders in the Rialto, CA, school district received a shocking in-class essay assignment in May, which led to an outcry from the community and a public apology from district administrators. The assignment asked students to discuss whether the Holocaust “was an actual event in history,” or whether it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the San Bernadino Sun reports. After the justified outrage ensued, district administrators insisted that not one single student had argued against the reality of the Holocaust. But the San Bernadino Sun, after sifting through hundreds of student

There was an article about this posted here back last May. This is a very heavily Muslim district, and in fact the school principal and several members of the school board had Arabic-sounding names.

Yep, I was right. The school superintendent is named Mohammed Z. Islam (wow, a double-header) and his spokeswoman is Syeda Jafri.

Nothing surprising here. Leftist teachers and school admin putting out democrat propaganda. It is the norm and we´re seeing more and more of it coming to light, including denials from the school admin.

Rialto is a crap hole with 76% Hispanic population and 29% of it´s residents are foreign born. Surprised that there were only 50 who denied the holocaust.

Imagine the outrage if the task was:

The assignment asked students to discuss whether slavery in America "was an actual event in history,” or whether it was “merely a political scheme created to influence public emotion and gain,” the San Bernadino Sun reports.

Obama, Holder and the Congressional Black Caucus would be outraged, with loud calls for arrests and imprisonment. But the Holocaust, not a peep.

FTA: "...district administrators insisted that not one single student had argued against the reality of the Holocaust. "

Really? The administrators read each and every report? Regardless, their comment missed the point entirely. All their comment says is that those teachers really have their work cut out for them, because clearly the students are much more intelligent than the teachers, and so the teachers will have to redouble their efforts in dumbing down the students!

What would America look like if the Koch brothers were in charge? American Bridge, a George Soros-funded outfit recently described by Democratic strategist Paul Begala as an army of “nerd virgins” who have never tasted alcohol or gotten laid, thinks it would be pretty awful. (Video) LIE: The Koch brothers kill bald eagles. FACT: This is an egregious falsehood that clearly seeks to whitewash the Obama administration’s bloodstained record.

HOUSTON, Texas- A large new immigrant housing center will be opened in South Texas. The South Texas Family Residential Center will ultimately hold 2,400 individuals, primarily families, who were apprehended while crossing the Texas- Mexico border. During their stay at the center foreigners will be provided with taxpayer-funded "medical care, play rooms, social workers, educational services, and access to legal counsel," Breitbart Texas has learned. The facility will open in November in Dilley, Texas, which is located about 70 miles southwest of San Antonio. This is the fourth facility of its kind to be built in Texas, according to Fox

Eleven months after the Obama administration launched healthcare.gov and just weeks before the open enrollment period to sign up for insurance policies created by the Affordable Care Act begins, Obama officials are touting the health care law and tamping down expectations, including the problem-plagued website. “You need to understand that this is going to be a year of substantial improvement,” Cecilia Munoz, assistant to the president and director of the Domestic Policy Council, said Wednesday at an “outreach” event at the Kaiser Family Foundation in Washington, D.C. “It’s not going to be a year of perfection.”

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg says that if she steps down now, President Obama would not be able to appoint an acceptable replacement. Ginsburg, who reiterated that she has no imminent plans to retire, told Elle that it would be next to impossible for the Senate to confirm a new justice to the court who she would approve of. "Who do you think President Obama could appoint at this very day, given the boundaries that we have? If I resign any time this year, he could not successfully appoint anyone I would like to see in the court," she

The laws of political fundraising dictate that every time a politician does something embarrassing — or heck, every time a politician does something — his or her opponents must therefore beat that incident to death in order to make money. Lo and behold: Barack Obama saluted the Marines while holding a latte! Ka-ching. Over at SemperLatte.com, anyone who is outraged by Obama’s multitasking can sign up for the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s emailing list, and express their displeasure by donating various sums of money to an assortment of GOP candidates running in the upcoming midterms. “Our Commander-in-Chief should take the

"There´s definitely a second day and there´ll be a third and a fourth" in Syria, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told CNN in an interview on Wednesday. "This will go on for some time in several forms." Along with its Arab partners, the Obama administration aims to destroy ISIS, the extremist faction that has through brute force carved out a proto-state in the heart of the Middle East, effectively erasing the border between Iraq and Syria. The United Nations has accused the extremist faction of committing war crimes. The U.S. strikes earlier Wednesday, conducted by bombers and fighter jets, damaged

How imminent is an ´imminent´ attack threat?
Associated Press, by Nancy Benac    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/24/2014 8:25:23 PM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON— Smart people in the administration have spent the last two days telling the American people that U.S. strikes against the Khorasan Group were necessary to disrupt "imminent attack plotting" against U.S. and Western interests. They warned that members of the shadowy Khorasan Group, an al-Qaida offshoot, were "nearing the execution phase" of an attack in the U.S. or Europe. They spoke of "active plotting that posed an imminent threat." People may have come away with the impression that the terror group was on the brink of pulling off something awful. Perhaps not. In government-speak, "imminent attack plotting" doesn´t necessarily mean

In the largest settlement with a single American Indian tribe, the Obama administration will pay the Navajo Nation $554 million to settle claims that the U.S. government has mismanaged funds and natural resources on the Navajo reservation for decades. The settlement, to be signed in Window Rock, Ariz., on Friday, resolves a long-standing dispute between the Navajo Nation and the U.S. government, with some of the claims dating back more than 50 years. The sprawling Navajo reservation, located in parts of Arizona, Utah and New Mexico, is the largest and most populous Indian reservation, with 14 million acres of trust

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God.

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

One of them—the last—was less good, given he had gone MIA for the better part of three weeks and I had a sneaking suspicion he had a girlfriend. We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope. There was something there, and we both knew it, which is why we are attempting to hash things out over the phone at some ungodly hour.

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email.
