EDITOR AT LA SOCIALISTA COMPARES MANHATTAN SCHOOL CHOICE SUPPORTER TO OSAMA BIN LADEN
FITSNews – July 13, 2008 – We already knew that Brad Warthen – the whiny, one-issue editorial page editor over at La Socialista – doesn’t like the notion of parental choice very much. He’d rather keep pouring billions of additional tax dollars down the same “government school sinkhole“, and his editorial board has written at least eleventy kabillion columns to that effect. We also already knew that Warthen doesn’t like school choice supporters very much, unless you consider calling someone a “cancer” to be a compliment.
Well, this week Warthen took his visceral hatred for a parent’s right to choose to a whole new level, comparing school choice supporter Howie Rich to terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. Which is even more insulting when you consider that Rich is from Manhattan, where bin Laden’s “planes operation” killed 3,000 people on Sept. 11, 2001.
Warthen made the comparison in this column, but quickly removed the link after receiving some criticism and inserted this disclaimer:
Sheesh. Some of y’all were so sensitive about the link I put on that last sentence, that I cut it out, even though it was simply a straightforward link to what this video reminded me of.
First of all, Brad, don’t be a pussy. If you’re going to compare someone to a mass murderin’, America-hatin’ no good terrorist son of a rag-head bitch (just because you don’t agree with them), then stand by it … and leave it up there for people to see it.
Second, and most importantly, thank you for demonstrating once again what the “pro-public education” movement in South Carolina is all about – demonizing anyone who dares to offer real solutions to their ongoing and increasingly expensive failure to educate our children.
