"1. How has the war on terrorism contributed to the powers of the Bush presidency? (Discuss at least 4 ways).
2. Discuss the sweeping attack on democratic rights under the Bush administration and what this means for the future of democratic government in America."
No leading questions, here!
But, in all fairness, Bush "43" isn't Christensen's only target in class. She tells students to go to Alex Jones' website, www.Infowars.com, (and to use it as an official reference) because "It's one of the best on the web!" This is not just a recommended reading. It is a required reading where students can learn nasty things about Reagan and Bush "41."
For example, the site reports that there were homosexual prostitution rings within the Reagan and Bush White Houses. The prostitutes were little boys sent by Soviet spies to engage in, not just sodomy, but espionage. The site also speaks of "homosexual prostitution and pedophile criminal acts in a suppressed but far-reaching child sex-ring probe closely linked to Senate and House members--but also former President George H. W. Bush."
As you read this site (remembering that "it's one of the best on the web!"), the words "911," "they (the Bush administration) knew," "they not only let it happen," and "they made it happen" come flashing across the screen. Remember Orwell's 1984?
In all fairness, the content of the Jones' site isn't always anti-Semitic like many of the other recommended and required readings for Christensen's class. For example, the site blames the Bush family for funding the build-up of the Hitler regime in the 1930s. At least that assertion implies there is something wrong with gassing the Jews. If all this is getting to be too much to believe, just go to the site and search for the article, "How Bush's grandfather helped Hitler's rise to power."
No food, drinks, gum, or cell phones are tolerated in the class of Jane Christensen (call 252-985-5118 or email email@example.com). But slander and anti-Semitism are permitted by a bigot posing as a scholar. That is, when she's not posing as a hooded terrorist with an M-16.
