Bennish: Intellectual Child Abuser

Mike Rosen has an article today about how Jay Bennish abused his position of teacher and abused his students intellectually with his diatribe:

Bennish is supposed to be a teacher not an agitator. And, no, balance wouldn't be served by an offsetting right-wing diatribe, wholly unlikely for an ideologue of his leftist ilk - and just as inappropriate in a 10th-grade classroom. His pretense is that this is Socratic dialogue meant to engage students. Nonsense. Socratic dialogue is reasoned, measured and dispassionate, not ranting and raving. Bennish's tone is bitter and inflammatory. He's a demagogue. He asks rhetorical questions and answers them himself with simplistic, left-wing sloganeering. "Capitalism is a violation of human rights," he declares as incontrovertible fact. Really? According to whom, Karl Marx? Josef Stalin? Kim Jong Il? That kind of a declaration would be out of line even in a class on comparative economics and has no relevance whatsoever in a geography class!


Bennish shamelessly concludes his 20-minute harangue saying: "And I'm not in any way implying that you should agree with me. I don't even know if I'm necessarily taking a position," after he just finished doing precisely that. What chutzpah! This is part of his charade as an advocate, pretending he's just provoking thought. He inserts this facile disclaimer, imagining that it inoculates him from charges of manipulating the impressionable young minds he rewards for regurgitating this twaddle back to him on a test or paper.

Lane, the Bennish button man, has questioned Allen's "agenda." Allen has made that clear. He believes it's wrong for a teacher to exploit his position of trust to engage in self-indulgent ideological indoctrination. And Allen's parents believe their public education tax dollars shouldn't be used to subsidize Bennish's political agenda and that their son is entitled to a fair and honest education. Apparently, many other parents and taxpayers agree. Nobody's taking Jay Bennish "out of context." He damns himself with his own words. This is nothing less than intellectual child abuse.

Apparently, Jay Bennish could be back to class on Monday.

I listened to the audio of ... (Below threshold)

I listened to the audio of TEACHER (JAY BENNISH) CAUGHT IN ANTI-AMERICAN BUSH RANT, with great interest. Also, with sadness.

My name is Michael Class. I live in the Seattle area with my wife and two children. I am a retired "dot-com" executive turned author, photographer, and publisher.

I was appalled at how some teachers presented American history to my children. My son and daughter learned that Thomas Jefferson had slaves--before they learned that he wrote the document articulating our rights and duties as free people. European settlers killed Native Americans with blankets infected with smallpox, they found out. That allegation upstaged the stories of courage, perseverance, and curiosity that defined the pioneers. My children knew that more than a hundred thousand people died when the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan, but they were not made to understand the moral context and the enormous scale of the conflict called World War II in which the atomic bomb story fit.

With a curriculum seemingly designed to instill guilt and shame, I wondered, how will my kids ever discover the lessons of history that inspire greatness and noble aspirations? Will they ever believe that they can make a difference? Will they have any heroes left at all? Then, I wondered: What would the heroes of America's past say to the children of today?

I wrote, photographed, and published a book designed to set the record straight, to properly prepare our children for the future. My book is called Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame. 

If anyone knows where I can reach 10th-grader Sean Allen, I will gladly send him a FREE copy of my book. He did the right thing.

My book specifically rebuts the positions taken by teacher Jay Bennish - because I have heard his arguments so many times before. My book tells the truth about capitalism, the War on Terror, and places them in historical perspective.

In the book, my real-life son, twelve-year-old Anthony, time-travels into the great events of the 20th century. Digital photographic "magic" places Anthony in the cockpit of the Spirit of St. Louis with Charles Lindbergh, on the moon with Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, in the laboratories of Thomas Edison and Jonas Salk, and on Normandy beach on D-Day. It looks as though Anthony really did meet Thomas Edison, Jonas Salk, FDR, Lou Gehrig, Charles Lindbergh, and Audie Murphy. And it's all historically accurate: Even Anthony's conversations with America's heroes are based on things they really said. (See the photos: www.MagicPictureFrame.com)

While writing and photographing the book, I spoke with relatives of famous scientists and inventors, Holocaust survivors, award-winning biographers, and others who could help me ensure that the facts of the book were both accurate and vivid. 

But the book goes beyond a simple recitation of historical facts: the book presents the moral lessons of American history. The chapter about Lindbergh's flight is really about choosing one's destiny. The story of Lou Gehrig is one of a virtuous life. The chapter about Thomas Edison is really about business. The story of Apollo 11 is about wonder, taking risks, and courage. The story of Dr. Jonas Salk and the cure for polio is really about dedicating one's life to a higher purpose. When Anthony "meets" his immigrant great-grandfather at Ellis Island in 1907, it's really a story about what it means to be an American. Anthony's observation of D-Day and the liberation of the death camps during the Holocaust is a testament to the reality of evil and the need to fight it.

The book is meant to challenge the young reader. Many adults will find the book challenging, too. Anthony COMPARES the people and events of the past with the people and events of his own time. Anthony discusses the nature of good and evil, right and wrong, war and peace, what it means to be an American, honor and discipline, success and achievement, courage and destiny, marriage and family, God and purpose. Anthony's observations prompt serious discussion of timeless moral questions. Anthony challenges the reader to think critically - to see the modern world in the light of the lessons of the past. 

We can't afford to raise a generation of Americans who do not value their country, their heritage, and their place in the world. As Abraham Lincoln said: America is the "last best hope of earth."

Thank you.

Of course, it's not an issue of free speech, it's an issue of indoctrination vs. education.

I know that some of my high school teachers were liberals, but they never pulled crap like this. My history teacher sticks out in my mind as an example. He was liberal and proud of it, but as long as I used facts to back up my conservative POV in my essays and class discussions I got good grades. That is the difference between encouraging debate and political demagoguery.

"The fact is that America is a special country, my dear. A country to envy, to be jealous of, having nothing to do with it's riches, etc. It is special, because it was born out of a soul-need, the need to have a mother land, and from the most sublime idea that man has ever conceived: The idea of liberty, in fact liberty wed to equality. It is so special also because at the time, the idea of liberty was not fashionable. Neither was equality. The only ones who spoke of these concepts where the philosophers known as "illuminists". The only place you found these concepts where in enormous and extremely costly serial volumes called l'Encyclopedie. Besides writers or other intellectuals, princes and lords that had the money to buy them, who else had ever heard of illuminism? It was not something to eat, not even the French revolutionaries spoke of it. Seeing as the French Revolution began in 1789 or rather thirteen years after the American Revolution, which began in 1776. (Another item that the anti-Americans of the "Good-the-Americans-deserve-it" ilk, ignore or feign to forget. The hypocrites!).

It is a special Country, A Country to envy furthermore, because that idea was understood by the farmers often illiterate and certainly uneducated. The farmers of the American Colonies. It was realized by a small group of extraordinary leaders: By men of great culture, of great quality. The Founding Fathers. Do you have an idea who the Founding Fathers were, the Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson and Thomas Paine and John Adams and George Washington ect.? Well above and beyond the petty little lawyers (as Vittorio Alfieri justly called them) of the French Revolution! They were totally different from the morose and hysterical henchmen of terror, the Marat and Danton and Saint Just and Robespierre! The Founding Fathers had a knowledge of Greek and Latin like the Italian professors of Greek and Latin (admitting that there are any left) will never possess. They were men who had read Aristotle and Plato in Greek and Seneca and Cicero in Latin. They had studied the principles of Greek democracy in depth, not even the fanatics of my time studied the Marxist theory in such depth (admitting that they actually studied it at all). Jefferson was fluent in Italian (he called it "Tuscan"). He spoke and read Italian fluently. In fact along with the two thousand vines and the thousand olive plants and music sheets, that were in short supply in Virginia, in 1774 the Florentine Filippo Mazzei had also brought various copies of a book written by a certain Cesare Beccaria called "Of crime and punishment". As to the self taught Franklin, he was a genius. A scientist, publisher, editor, writer, journalist, politician and inventor. In 1752 he had discovered the electric nature of lightning and invented the lighting rod. It was with these extraordinary leaders, these men of great quality, that in 1776 the farmers illiterate and uneducated rebelled against England. They had the war of Independence. The American Revolution.

Well, notwithstanding rifles and gun powder and the cost of lives that every war exacts, they did not do it with the rivers of blood of the future French Revolution. They did not do it with the Guillotine and with the massacres of Vandea. They did it with a sheet of paper which together with the need of the soul, the need to have a Mother Land, made concrete the sublime idea of liberty, in fact liberty wed to equality. The Declaration of Independence "We hold these truths to be self evident that all men are created equal..."It is that sheet, that from the French Revolution on we have all copied for better or worse, or from which we were inspired, and it still constitutes the back bone of America. The life blood of this nation. Do you know why? Because it transforms the subjected into citizens. Because it transforms the masses into a population. Because it invites them, no it orders them, to govern themselves, to express their own individuality, to find their own happiness. The complete opposite of what Communism used to do, forbidding people to rebel, to govern themselves, to express themselves, to enrich themselves, and placing His Majesty the State at the place of the usual King. "Communism is a monarchy, an old fashioned monarchy. As such it castrates men. When a man is castrated he is no longer a man" my father used to say. He also used to say that instead of ransoming the masses, communism transformed everyone into one of the masses. It rendered everyone a peasant.

Well, in my opinion, America ransoms the plebeians. They are all plebeians in America. White, black, yellow, brown, purple, stupid, intelligent, poor and rich. In fact the rich are the most plebeian. In the majority of cases they are unrefined, badly mannered, rednecks. You can immediately ascertain that they have never read Monsignor della Casa, that they have never had anything to do with sophistication, good taste and refined ways. In spite of the money that they waste in dressing, for example, they are so inelegant that by comparison the Queen of England looks chic. However, they are ransomed, by God. In this world there is nothing stronger, more powerful and the ransomed masses. "

.."You always break your horns butting heads with the ransomed masses. With America everyone has gotten their horns broken, England, Germany, Mexico, Russia, Nazi, Fascist, Communist. Lastly even the Vietnamese, who after the victory had to come to terms with them so that when an ex president of the United States goes to visit them, they touch the heavens with a finger. "Welcome, Mr. President, welcome". The problem is that the Vietnamese don't pray to Allah. With the sons of Allah the matter will be difficult. Very long and very difficult. Unless the rest of the Western world stops shitting in it's pants and start reasoning a little and lend it a hand."

The sad thing is this teacher gets his job back, because the school is too chicken to face the union and court.

Allen gets to go to a new school, because of threats.

Bannish probably bans all electronic looking items in his class, and goes on indoctrinating our children with leftist talking points, and no facts to back them up, and he collects a paycheck from the taxpayer to do it.

See I have no issue with presenting opposing viewpoints-it is a good idea, but in class those viewpoints should involve facts-not rhetoric. The kicker is that, there were 100 different ways he could have covered the SOTU, but instead he chose to go on a Bush=Hitler, the US is evil rant.

ryan a:

just me:

I still want to know what he said to balance Bush=Hitler-there really isn't a balance to that one.

First of all, if you read it or listen to it, you'll realize that he didnt say that Bush equals Hitler, as you are asserting.

Here's what he said:

He started off his speech talking about how America should be the country that dominates the world. That we have been blessed essentially by God to have the most civilized, most advanced, best system and that it is our duty as Americans to use the military to go out into the world and make the whole world like us.

Sounds a lot like the things that Adolf Hitler use to say.

Bennish was comparing the speech/rhetoric of Bush to Hitler, which is different than saying that Bush is Hitler. The comparison doesnt work well at all, in my opinion, since Hitler's speeches were violent, fanatical, and racist rants that overflowed with nationalism. Bush's speech may be ethnocentric, but the Hitler comparison just doensnt hold, and in fact only serves to piss people off and derail the argument.

Bennish continues by interpreting Bush's point in this way:

We're the only ones who are right. Everyone else is backwards. And it's our job to conquer the world and make sure they live just like we want them to.

Certainly, an argument could be made that the US does go about things in this manner to a certain extent, although we dont do it in the old conquest and colonialism fashion. But then the counter argument is that pretty much every nation or culture on this earth thinks that they know the "right" way to live. Not everyone has the means to go out and enforce that though. Doenst mean that they wouldnt, if given the chance.

More Bennish:

Now, I'm not saying that Bush and Hitler are exactly the same. Obviously, they are not. Ok. But there are some eerie similarities to the tones that they use. Very, very "ethnocentric." We're right. You're all wrong.

So there's where he states that they are not "exactly" the same. The "eerie similarities" that Bennish is talking about are the tones that that Bush and Hitler used. For Bennish, it's "eerie" that both were ethnocentric, which to me isnt very eerie at all, since most people are pretty ethnocentric, and have been for thousands and thousands of years. We all think our shit doesnt stink, and that our neighbors are "weird."

It would be "eerie" to me if Bush was talking about conquering a nearby country that was filled with an inferior race of people...thats the kind of crap that Hitler was spewing. And obviously, Bush isnt saying that.

Bennish would have been a lot better served to leave the Hitler comarison out altogether; it's a Liberal tactic that has been overdone, and honestly is something that I think is weak. Hitler stands for all that is evil...he is just about the most evil human being that westerners like us can fathom. So comparing the president to him, well, thats pretty much going to piss off half of the country...especially since it's a pretty stupid claim.

Bush isnt my favorite of all time...but I certainly dont think that he is the mastermind of evil that some people want to characterize him as. I have heard the Hitler comparison way too much, and I wish that those who use it would just drop it. It's a stupid comparison, and one that just adds fuel to the liberal/conservative fire.

In the end, even though I dont think that Bennish is the greatest teacher of all time, I dont think we should be sitting around demonizing the guy based on 20 minutes of one lecture. Maybe we should ask some of his students from the past 6 years how effective he was as a teacher. That would be a start.

Right now, we're looking at a fraction of reality, and people are trying to judge based on it. Thats not really how our legal system is supposed to work, and is precisely the reason why we dont want lynch mobs or vigilantes making decisions for us.

5. If necessary I'll get my ass elected to the school board and become that curmudgeon that everyone will hate.

But would I allow them to give me the managerial brush-off that so many seem to advocate? Not a chance. I've dealt with a lot of people in government service.

I think its funny how the educational establishment just "happens" to be dominated by liberals. Interesting, isn't it, how the most educated people in the country also happen to be the most liberal.

Lets leave that aside for a moment though.

Its very funny to me that conservatives are so frightened by the thought of teenagers being exposed to liberal thought and opinions. To me, this betrays a fundamental lack of confidence among conservatives in their own ideology. After all, if conservative ideology could stand up on its own conservatives would not be so scared of liberal teachers!

American Capitalism - What Immigrants Know, And What Your Children Should Be Taught

In my new book, Anthony and the Magic Picture Frame, my twelve-year-old son, Anthony, travels through time to meet his ten-year-old great-grandfather at Ellis Island in 1907. Anthony also meets his great-great-grandfather, Francesco, the first of our family to immigrate to America.

At one point in the story, Anthony makes the following observation: "Underneath the hardships that Francesco and the other immigrants faced, the forces of freedom and capitalism worked quietly. Slowly, but surely, Francesco and the other immigrants turned opportunity into achievement, and poverty into wealth. I could see it happening."

What, exactly, was Anthony observing? And, is it still true today?

In the early 1900s, America's system of free enterprise and capitalism provided an opportunity that was unknown elsewhere in the world: The opportunity for a family to become wealthy in a single generation. Everywhere else on the globe, if you were born into poverty, chances were that you would remain in poverty all of your life, and your children had little chance of doing any better. So people left their homelands and traveled to America. Immigrants took advantage of the unique opportunity America offered, and they started businesses in America.

Here are some examples of Italian immigrants who succeeded:

In 1890, nineteen-year-old Domenico DeDomenico emigrated from Italy and settled in California. He started a pasta company called Gragnano Products in 1912. In 1934, the company was renamed the Golden Grain Macaroni Company and later became famous for its Rice-A-Roni products.

In 1889, twelve-year-old Amadeo Obici emigrated from Italy. In 1904, he opened a fruit stand in New York City, offering bags of roasted peanuts for a nickel each. His roasted peanuts were so popular, that in 1906, Amadeo Obici established the Planters Peanut Company.

In 1900, Vincent Taormina emigrated from Sicily and settled in New Orleans. He began a small importing business, bringing the foods of Italy to America. In 1927, his successful business merged with another food company to form the Progresso Italian Food Corporation.

In 1915, seventeen-year-old Hector Boyardi emigrated from Italy and settled in Cleveland, OH, where he became a chef and opened a restaurant. Hector's spaghetti sauce was so popular that he packaged it in milk bottles for his customers to take home. Later, when Hector combined his bottled spaghetti sauce with pasta and offered the combination as a "cook-at-home" meal, he had the makings of a new company. Hector "Americanized" his name and called his new company Chef Boyardee.

Is what America's early immigrants knew still true today? The answer is "Yes!" - and your children should know it.

America is still the place where families can become wealthy in a single generation: 80 percent of America's millionaires are first-generation rich. Starting a business is still the best and most popular way to become wealthy: The self-employed make up less than 20 percent of the workers in America, but they account for more than two-thirds of America's millionaires! Twenty million Americans operate sole-proprietorships. Small companies - companies with less than five hundred employees - employ half of the American workforce, or about sixty million people! Small businesses create three out of four new jobs in America annually.

In February 2006, Colorado High School teacher Jay Bennish came under fire for saying this to his students about capitalism: "Do you see how this economic system is at odds with humanity? At odds with caring and compassion? It's at odds with human rights." He deserved the rancor he received. America's economic system lifted millions of people out of poverty and gave them new hope for their future. It still does.

Why are there some Americans who can't see the tremendous opportunities that their country offers them today? Perhaps Thomas Edison answered that question best when he said: "Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work."

Thank you.
