GO GET WIZBANG, what a Xenophobe!
How exactly are they going to “GO GET” Wizbang?
And Xenophobe ???? What exactly makes them think I don’t like foreigners? Does this person own a dictionary?
If Kos tried to purge all the moonbats, he missed one.
Ironically most all of the comments were against ebonics including this insightful one:
The original article is damning (4.00 / 2)
It ran in the San Bernadino Sun on Sunday.
Whether the guy was serious or really unfunny-ironic in his “pick cotton” line, the premise of the debate is still very disturbing. Classifying Ebonics as a “separate language, as established by the Oakland School District in 1996”, and then claiming that students must learn in Ebonics in order to preserve their “self confidence”, is a recipe for disaster. (Would the 1996 Ebonics text even be useful today? What does the established curriculum look like?)
One thing is right: if we teach students Ebonics on the basis of their race, we will guarantee a steady stream of “cotton pickers” – people shut off from economic power – for the length of their lives.

At least one liberal gets it.
