  • Teacher Demands Che Fliers be Removed from Student's Locker

    10/10/2011 2:27:36 PM Posted by Ron Meyer

    Che LockerLast weekend, campuses across the country celebrated No More Che Day. They used the Foundation's Victims of Che Guevara poster and our other flyers to educate students that Che was truly a murderer and thug.

    Matt Monos at Columbia Independent School took part in No More Che Day as well, and he chose to post the flyers on his locker. By doing so, he was able to educate many of his peers on who Che truly was.

    Evidently, some of the teachers at school felt otherwise. Matt was approached by a psychology teacher and was asked to take them down because he didn't receive permission. This is despite that students at school routinely decorate the outside of their lockers with other images. Conservative view points are obviously frowned upon.

    Matt writes, "I feel that there was absolutely no reason to make the order as the only rule they have applies to handing out flyers and hanging them. On the same note, the handbook states that I may place any school appropriate materials on my locker. I was not handing out the flyers or hanging them anywhere not technically under my control, and I simply posted those three pictures as decorations to my locker. I see nothing inappropriate with what we did. The pictures had interesting quotes and at least had educational function, versus spelling out Mila Kunis' name." Kunis Locker Decoration

    • Proud of you Matt for standing up for your principles and beliefs! It's shameful that schools are the ones repressing speech in America!

    • It's unfortunate that some teachers feel threatened by a student who is able to teach the teacher something important about history! Good job, Matt! Keep up the great work! Keep thinking and questioning with boldness!

    • Right Roschelle, how dare she bill the state for what she is entitled to under Alaska's laws.a0 She was such a swnilder that she even managed to outspend the previous governor. Gov. Palin has spent far less on her personal travel than her predecessor: $93,000 on airfare in 2007, compared with $463,000 spent the year before by her predecessor, . He traveled often in an executive jet that Palin called an extravagance during her campaign. She sold it after she was sworn into office.Oh, wait a minute, she didn't out spend him, she only spent 20% as much a0 Damn, there goes that meme You should try reading beyond the headline.a0 Of course, your marching orders probably only included the headline, and a tee he .Hey, in the interest of fair play, how about a full disclosure of Obama's and all of Congresses travel patterns.a0 Then we can see who is corrupt and who is not.

    • We know that socialism could never make it by simply calling for what it is (eg. socialism) so the left has to re-brand it as "social justice", "humanism", "environmentalism", "progressivism", "science" or whatever terms they are using this week to sneak it in. Therefore it is no surprise that socialists will never acknowledge it's previous attempts and, instead call Nazi's and Saddam Hussein "nationalists" or Soviets and the Chinese "communists". Denying, all the while, that Carl Marx had something else in mind. It is no surprise, either, the extents that they will go to revise history: eg. the Crusades, the contributions of Islam to society, genocide of Native America, Gulf of Tonkin etc. Western civilization, after Herodotus, demands that history have tangible artifacts and eyewitness accounts, test them for period and bias, respectively, and construct a vivid narrative in light of your findings. These methods can no longer be taught, in history or journalism, because the gig would be over for the socialists. Things that will never be taught at our state institutions: Islam based on the Qur'an while plying accepted tafsir or historiography of Muhammad. Adam Smith and free market economics. Western Philosophy Eastern Philosophy Ethics in Journalism The 11th Century BC Taigong (Grand Duke) Jiang Ziya, wrote, in his thesis, "The Six Secret Teachings" that Civil Society is the moral and economic platform from which a state derives it's strength: "Moral, effective government is the basis for survival and the foundation for warfare. The state must thrive economically while limiting expenditures, foster appropriate values and behaviour among the populace, implement rewards and punishments, employ the worthy, and refrain from disturbing and harming the people." Ziya's Military Stratagem is an extension of his Civil Society Stratagem and seeks to undermine the enemy's moral and economic base: "Attracting the disaffected weakens the enemy and strengthens the state; employing subterfuge and psychological techniques allows manipulation of the enemy and hastens its demise. The ruler must visibly cultivate his Virtue (德) and embrace government policies that will allow the state to compete for the minds and hearts of the people; the state will thus gain victory without engaging in battle."
