Teaching What?

This is amazing - I am going to reprint much of LGF's posting on this - sorry, I am just amazed and I think it is important that we see what infection of insanity has spread throughout our schools!

Ladies and lizards (and lizards who are ladies), I’d like to introduce you to associate professor at North Carolina Wesleyan, Jane T. Christensen. (Hat tip: Drew.)

Here is her faculty web page, proudly reeking of antisemitism and conspiracy mania.

Here is the course she’s teaching for the Spring 2005 semester: (POL 495) 911 The Road to Tyranny.

Read the whole page. You’re not going to believe her recommended web sites and reading sources.

And here is her final exam for (POL302) The American Presidency




Instructions: Write essays on each of the following 4 questions (25 points each). Your answers should be at least one page each, no less. You will be graded on your writing and organizational skills as well as your ability to bring the readings into your discussion. This test is designed to see how well you have thought about the materials we have read and discussed and your ability to discuss these materials after you have reflected on them.

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.

3. Whose interests are served by the foreign and domestic policies of the Bush administration?

4. Describe and discuss the role of the Bush advisors. Who are they? What is their agenda? And how is it being carried out?

This lady is amazing although I am sure Howard Dean might offer her a job if she keeps this up!

Her faculty web page includes a link to a petition to impeach Bush - on her faculty web page!

All of this is fine on a personal web site, but this is a site that students shouldn't be afraid to visit and trust me I would be afraid, very afraid!

I only have one comment to make and it's by Mark Twain:

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man; brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."

Wait, who is the patriot encouraging change in your comment? This teacher? Isn't she the one who wants to go back to the same old tired out appeasment that failed so miserably prior to 9/11? Just wondering. Seems to me the patriots are those like John Bolton who want to get in there and shake the shit out of the corrupt world bodies.
