LA Times, College Professor Show Hatred for Bush – Again

From Jason Rantz and Family Security Matters.

Why should an art professor be proselytizing far Left Bush hatred to his students? FSM Contributing Editor Jason Rantz has revealed a series of disturbing trends toward political indoctrination on American campuses. Now, he exposes the LA Times as a willing accomplice. 

“Something I hate more than the New York Times is the Los Angeles Times. Something I hate more than the LA Times is a professor who puts his or her politics and personal beliefs over the proper curriculum of the class. What I hate the most is when a major liberal propagandist newspaper celebrates selfish professors who bring their politics into a classroom that isn’t supposed to be about politics. Unfortunately, that’s what the LA Times did this past weekend.  

 

In an op-ed piece for the newspaper, Steve Brodner, an art professor from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, reprinted five Bush-hating art pieces his students created for his course – not a single piece that isn’t hatefully critical of Bush and the war. According to his piece, and as reprinted by Newsbusters:

 

The pieces reprinted here — including one I did myself — are the result of a group project I assigned. I felt that while they were in my class, students should focus on what I believe to be the most urgent issue of our time: the Iraq war. (Emphasis added)

 

Ironically, the students shouldn’t focus on what should be the most urgent issue in an art class – the ability of actually composing art that will get students jobs and publications. He goes on to discuss the curriculum of this section of this art class:

 

I broke down the war into key historical events and let the students choose the ones they would illustrate.

 

What is Brodner’s expertise that allows him to teach a class on international politics? Art. Cartooning. Drawing pictures and coloring them in. Looking at things, finding the lines and shadows, and copying them onto a sheet of paper. Now, this is quite difficult and I mean absolutely no offense to artists out there. Even with a ruler, I find it difficult to draw a straight line. But, the same way I am not qualified to teach an art class, this professor is not qualified to teach a class discussing the “most urgent issue of our time.” Though, to his credit, he’s not teaching anything, but propagandizing.

 

Newsbusters also makes an interesting point:

 

Isn’t art supposed to be the ultimate in free expression? Shouldn’t artists focus on what they feel are the most important things in their lives? But here’s a teacher assigning his students to paint the war because he has decided it’s “the most urgent issue.”

 

On topics like these – when I’m upset that an unqualified professor preaches instead of teaches – I get plenty of emails saying that I do not support free speech or academic freedom and that I just want professors to teach conservative values. That couldn’t be farther from the truth.”

One Response to LA Times, College Professor Show Hatred for Bush – Again

    Title: Moses Didn’t Write About Creation!
    Paperback: 432 pages
    Publisher: PublishAmerica (August 6, 2007)
    Language: English
    ISBN-10: 1424182204
    ISBN-13: 978-1424182206
    Product Dimensions: 9 x 6 x 1 inches

    A new brand of creationism, which atheists and (other) creationists
    are not familiar with is “Biblical Reality”, which is better known as
    the “Observations of Moses”.

    This “Old Earth” brand of creationism puts forth the view that combines
    a seven 24-hr day week of original creation (Exodus 20:11), with a separate
    “six 12-hr days of revelation” given to Moses (Genesis 1:2 – 2:3).
    The pseudo discrepancy between the “sixth day” in Genesis chapter one
    and in chapter two is explained as chapter two being the beginning of
    modern mankind (Adam & Eve), and chapter one as being an earlier species
    of prehistoric mankind in an earlier restoration period, more than 60 million
    years ago.

    Biblical Reality is defined as the “ordained marriage” of Biblical Truth, and
    Scientific Reality. Think of Biblical Truth as the “correct” literal interpretation
    of Scripture, and Scientific Reality as “That which has been discovered and
    analyzed to be of true historical existence. That which has been observed to
    be a real occurrence or phenomena, whether or not it can be explained.”
    For example, the discoveries of the extinctions of life on Earth in what has
    been determined to be 245 Million BC (dimetrodons) and 65 Million BC
    (dinosaurs) is accepted as Scientific Reality.

    Biblical Reality teaches that there are no “creation accounts” in Genesis,
    and that “Moses Didn’t Write About Creation!”. What is actually being said
    is “Moses wrote about Restoration”. Before the advent of “Biblical Reality”,
    no faction of creationism could explain both the “first day” of Moses and
    the “Fourth Day”, all being 24-hr days, without either denying literal
    interpretation or “redefining” the scriptures.

    The “six days of Moses” in Genesis chapter one are actually six consecutive
    (12 hour) days in 1598 BC that God revealed to Moses (on Mt. Sinai) from
    the ancient past. Each day was from the first week of each of seven different
    geological eras in “biblical order”. The only day of Creation Week which Moses
    saw was the “Fourth Day”. Creation Week was 168 hours, in 4.6 Billion BC,
    according to the geologist.
