Hey, kids! Compare Bush to Hitler and you’ll win a prize:
Seventeen-year-old Jeffrey Eden of Charlestown, R.I., has been awarded an A by his teacher and the ‘’Silver Key’’ in the Rhode Island Scholastic Art Awards for a diorama titled ‘’Bush/Hitler and How History Repeats Itself.’’
But praise the US and you’ll be facing the Hitler comparisons yourself:
A Kuwaiti Arab Muslim student is speaking out after his community college approved an article indirectly comparing him to Adolph Hitler.
Last semester, Foothill College political science professor Joseph Woolcock flunked Ahmad Al Qloushi and ordered him to get psychological treatment because he wrote a pro-American essay as his take-home final exam. Standing his ground on the essay, Al Qloushi explained that if it were not for U.S. intervention into Kuwait when he was younger, he would not have had the opportunity for furthering his education. “I owe America a lot of gratitude and debt, and I refuse to bad-mouth this country in any way,” he said at the time.
Bob Parks has more on the Ahmad Al Qloushi debacle, which began last month.
