Exclusive: Teacher calls parent a ‘neo-nazi’ after he challenged indoctrination

November 3, 2013

Josh Barry, the parent of an eighth grader at the East Pennsboro Area School District in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, told the Examiner that an assignment his eldest daughter brought home from school was clear political indoctrination.

After expressing his concerns to the school, a teacher he had never met contacted a mutual friend from Facebook and spoke disparagingly about the dedicated dad.

It all started when Barry, a vigilant parent, reviewed his daughter’s paperwork and was shocked to see a highly political assignment citing a New York Times article that blamed the Republicans for the government “shutdown,” along with a worksheet that accompanied the article.

The worksheet asked in part,

“Whom do you hold most responsible for the government shutdown?”

and,

“Do you feel it is principled or irresponsible, for politicians to threaten a shutdown?”

Josh said,

“I was immediately disturbed by the slanted view on the topic as well as the amount of information that was left out of the article that was relevant to the discussion.”

Mr. Barry contacted his daughter’s American History teacher via email, and copied the school board.

He wrote in part,

“It is safe to say I am less than pleased with your non objective approach to education when it pertains to current political discussions in the classroom….Questions on your worksheet are pre-loaded with politically ideology and pre-loaded with incorrect premises.”

The American History teacher, Darin Yoder, responded in part,

“…The objective was not to promote any political agenda but to work on non-fiction reading skills. The article we used was a non-fiction article from the New York Times. The no-fiction [sic] skills were apparent in the article and the lesson. We allowed all students to share what they know about the government…”

After this dad responded to Mr. Yoder, the principal, Mr. Andrejack contacted Mr. Barry to schedule an appointment to discuss the situation. The principal said in part to Mr. Barry,

“As a parent myself who raised 4 boys, I take great offense to what you said.”

Clearly, the principal was not happy. But at least they were working on a solution.

Enter teacher Cydnee Cohen, who never met or spoke with Mr. Barry, but works at his daughter’s school. She is a mutual friend of one of Josh’s Facebook friends, and contacted the friend to presumably get information about Mr. Barry.

Ms. Cohen left a voicemail (click on the video to hear the voicemail) that said in part,

“We’re having some problems with a parent in our school district and on his page you are one of his friends…but I would like to know, some of it seems like he is a neo-nazi…call me…”

The mutual friend sent a text (see screenshot) to Cohen, saying that Josh is the “furthest thing” from a neo-nazi, as he is Jewish. Cohen responded, “he is tea party right wing!”

Barry told the Examiner that he is perplexed why Cohen would call him a neo nazi, but speculated that with the political atmosphere, many have a kneejerk reaction to those who believe in limited government and fiscal responsibility.

Mr. Barry’s speculation is not without merit, as President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and many others have made inaccurate and denigrating comments aimed at the Tea Party.

If this is true let us not even delay this by even one day, by one hour! The whole world should get together as one group and get rid off this utter, despicable and vile evil once and for all. No visas, no mosques, no Islam, no Sharia, no asylum, no residency, no trade with Muslim countries at all, no investment allowed from them. Non negotiable. Period. Isolate them completely like gangrene.

Putin Recommends Alliance Between Western Nations and East Asia to “Crush the Muslims”

by Kevin Lake, Iraq War Veteran and an author | Freepatriot

Never before in American history has a Russian President’s stock been as high as current Soviet Premiere Vladimir Putin’s. America, currently in the middle of the first government shut down since the Clinton administration of 1995, is looking for leadership, finding very little to almost non in current U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama.

While Obama caters to Muslim radicals, particularly Al Qaeda terrorists in Syria, who were run out of norther Iraq by U.S. forces in the most recent Iraq war, by labeling them “rebels” and arming them and providing them with machinery and money, Russian President Vladimir Putin has taken a more realistic stance toward the modern threat toward the West and all free nations, radical Islam, and recommended in a recent letter to the American people (see more here: http://freepatriot.org/2013/09/08/russia-love-letter-putin-americans/ ) that “Moscow, Washington, London, Paris, Brussels, Jerusalem, Lagos, Addis Ababa, Beijing, New Delhi–come together in a new Holy Alliance, similar to that which kept Europe safe from radicalism in the early 19th century. Let’s join one another to crush the unholy, unruly, jihadi Muslims. The good Muslims will thank us for it. And if they don’t–too bad.”

Meanwhile, while soldiers on American military bases cannot shop for groceries in the PX’s, because they’ve been closed, American politicians continue to play golf at Andrew’s Air Base.

A Plea for Caution From Russia

What Putin Has to Say to Americans About Syria

By VLADIMIR V. PUTIN | Published: September 11, 2013 | NYTimes

MOSCOW — RECENT events surrounding Syria have prompted me to speak directly to the American people and their political leaders. It is important to do so at a time of insufficient communication between our societies.

Relations between us have passed through different stages. We stood against each other during the cold war. But we were also allies once, and defeated the Nazis together. The universal international organization — the United Nations — was then established to prevent such devastation from ever happening again.

The United Nations’ founders understood that decisions affecting war and peace should happen only by consensus, and with America’s consent the veto by Security Council permanent members was enshrined in the United Nations Charter. The profound wisdom of this has underpinned the stability of international relations for decades.

No one wants the United Nations to suffer the fate of the League of Nations, which collapsed because it lacked real leverage. This is possible if influential countries bypass the United Nations and take military action without Security Council authorization.

The potential strike by the United States against Syria, despite strong opposition from many countries and major political and religious leaders, including the pope, will result in more innocent victims and escalation, potentially spreading the conflict far beyond Syria’s borders. A strike would increase violence and unleash a new wave of terrorism. It could undermine multilateral efforts to resolve the Iranian nuclear problem and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and further destabilize the Middle East and North Africa. It could throw the entire system of international law and order out of balance….”

The Muslim Issue

Maybe Kevin Lake’s headline is a bit exaggerated to Putin’s actual speech, but there are many people who feel the same. If this is true let us not delay this by even one day, by one hour. The whole world should get together as a single group and get rid off this utter, despicable, aggressive, provocative, and vile evil (in)human deformity in the world that never stops creating problems for everyone, once and for all.

And from now onwards: no visas, no mosques, no Islam, no Sharia, no asylum, no residency, no trade with Muslim countries at all anywhere in the world. No investment allowed from them either. Deport them. Non negotiable! Period.
We don’t need their money, which they earn from us anyways, and we don’t need them. Isolate them in their deserts like the sub-human satanic gangrene of humanity they are. Without our trade they have nothing…
