DC public school teacher asks 6th graders to compare Bush and Hitler

Another day and another boneheaded display of liberal bias in the classroom.

Wow. DC students asked to compare and contrast Hitler & G. Bush. It happened. http://t.co/vqVwakIWgh

@DebraAlfarone She needs to be fired. Teachers like that have no business being in the classroom.

@wusa9 picture out of context when assignment involved books read. Still stupid. But so is the reporting. Pfft

— gary mcleod (@gtmcleod) September 11, 2014

Here’s some “context” according to WUSA9 in DC

According to WNEW, the educator at McKinley Middle School sent students home with a Venn diagram with instructions to compare and contrast Hitler and Bush, stating that “both men abused their powers.”

A copy of the assignment, made by an upset parent and posted on social media, instructs students to draw examples from two texts they were assigned and to fill in a Venn diagram with similarities and differences between the two men.

“Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions,” the assignment reads. “Please refer to your texts, ‘Fighting Hitler – A Holocaust Story’ and ‘Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD’ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler. We will use this in class tomorrow for an activity!”

Can you imagine what would happen if a teacher did the same thing but substituted Barack Obama for George W. Bush?

No DCPS curriculum says to make these comparisons in any way. A deeply apologetic teacher used poor judgment & will apologize to students.

— Kaya Henderson (@HendersonKaya) September 11, 2014

@HendersonKaya The public entrusts you with their children. Extremely poor judgment on the teachers behalf and disciplinary action is needed

‘Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment’ demonstrations take place [video, pics]

If you have been driving in certain areas, you might have seen an “Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment” demonstration. The overpass protests have been ongoing for a few weeks, and more were held this weekend:

Here’s a helpful officer:

Unsurprisingly, some of these demonstrations haven’t gone unchallenged:

Apparently anti-Obama protesters have no right to protest near the highway, because others who were more pro-Obama were on hand to remind them “you didn’t build that.”

Meet the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winners!

Can you win the Nobel Peace Prize multiple times? Because I enjoyed Obama winning so very much in 2009 that I want it to happen again.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 8, 2014

Sorry, no repeat for the president.

But well-deserved congratulations do go out to Kailash Satyarthi, a children’s rights activist from India and to Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani teen who was shot by the Taliban because she wanted to go to school:

As a reminder, here’s what the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner had to say to 2009’s winner about drone attacks:

So, how’s that working out?

Malala’s prize is long overdue and there are many who thought she should have won it last year, like we did:

Trouble At The Sheraton? Starwood Hotels CEO Is Stepping Down

The CEO of Starwood Hotels and Resortsannounced his resignation today. The move sent the stock moving up, but was a reminder of challenges ahead for the $14 billion hotel operator.

Jeff Haynes / Reuters

Less than a week after hospitality giant Starwood Hotels and Resorts said it would spin off its growing timeshare business, the Westin, Sheraton, and W Hotels parent’s board announced Tuesday that CEO Frits van Paasschen would step down.

Starwood’s board delivered the relatively sudden announcement without many specifics as to why it reached a “mutual decision” with van Paasschen to end his seven-year run at the helm of the $14 billion hotel company, but analysts and investors began weighing in in short order on Tuesday, when the company’s stock jumped by 3% following news of van Paasschen’s departure.

Starwood had struggled to compete with Marriott, Hyatt, and Hilton, due in part to its exposure to volatile emerging markets, an area in which van Paasschen had pushed Starwood to pursue growth opportunities during his tenure.

While the board searches for a new CEO, one of its directors, Adam Aron, will serve as interim CEO.

“Adam has been a Starwood director for nearly a decade and has deep hospitality industry experience as former CEO of both Vail Resorts and Norwegian Cruise Line,” Bruce Duncan, Starwood’s chairman of the board, said in a statement. “He is very familiar with our strategy, brands and leaders around the globe, and we are confident Starwood won’t miss a beat as he steps in to lead the Company during this transitional period.”

The incoming CEO will likely not be responsible for implementing a new strategy for Starwood, as Duncan later told Reuters the board did not disagree with van Paasschen on Starwood’s current strategy, it only took issue with the strategy’s execution.

Analysts, while encouraged with Starwood’s move, are wary about how exactly it will improve execution of some of the company’s biggest initiatives to sell more rooms and target a younger demographic.

“We believe, over the past year, investors have grown increasingly frustrated with [Starwood’s] slower system expansion than peers as well as what evolved into a very murky return of capital story,” MLV & Co. analyst Ryan Meliker wrote in a note Tuesday. “Additionally, Frits’ marketing tendencies seemed to agitate investors more than normal over that time frame, given the aforementioned issues. It is our understanding that the Board of Directors heard from multiple investors about these concerns.”

According to Meliker, Starwood has also struggled in the “select service” space, or brands that don’t offer full-service amenities like a bellman, banquet space, or even room service.

“The big thing in general is growth — Starwood has lagged peers in hotel brands that don’t offer full-service amenities,” Meliker told BuzzFeed News. “Starwood launched Aloft and Element and has Four Points, but Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, and IHG all offer a lot of brands in that space, and that’s the space that’s growing robustly. That’s where consumers are choosing to spend. They don’t want to pay for a bellman and they don’t necessarily need room service, especially in an urban area.”

Indeed, Starwood has dramatically missed its stated goals for the development of its “millennial-focused” Aloft and Element brands, with the company stating in 2007 that it would open 200 Aloft properties by 2010. There are currently fewer than 100 Aloft finished properties as of January 2015.

“We are encouraged by Starwood’s desire to improve its operating performance, as room growth disappointed in 2014, and both asset disposals and shareholder return have lagged investors’ expectations the last several years,” Morningstar analyst Adam Fleck wrote in a note Tuesday on the heels of Starwood’s announcement. “That said, details as to how execution will improve moving forward are vague.”

Jenna Jameson: ‘Bush didn’t destroy industry'; Lib says ‘kill yourself’

 

Facts are hard, to the Left.

As Twitchy reported, Mitt Romney totally scored the Jenna Jameson endorsement. Liberals, sexist to the core, swiftly turned on the former porn star and spewed their predictably vile insults. The insults are continuing, with this classy liberal telling Ms. Jameson, “kill yourself.”

@shanethvarosa obviously they are… Half the free world is talking about my quote #haveaseat

— Jenna Jameson (@jennajameson) August 5, 2012

Disgusting.

To that misogynist, Ms. Jameson should only be reduced to the sum of her girly bits. Speak? Not allowed; she must get back into the kitchen or the bedroom. Another Twitter user tries to explain life, and class, to the cretin and a supporter.

@shanethvarosa Thank goodness 140 characters is enough for you to tweet vile and sexist comments to someone over an opinion.

@shanethvarosa The racist card? Nice reach. But if that's the direction you choose to go, your arguments are obviously weak.

— EEE (@EEElverhoy) August 5, 2012

Of course. If attempts at silencing women with misogyny don’t work, try the race card! Ms. Jameson can handle herself, however, and takes this one to task with yet another fantastic “your mom” slam.

@SheaDiamond @kriscarpenter23 aaaw quoting your mom? #cute

And composure, which always ticks off the unhinged Left.

@AngelinaCastroX looking forward to meeting u

— Jenna Jameson (@jennajameson) August 5, 2012

Awesome, Jenna. She’s also learning something that Jon Lovitz learned recently; The “tolerant” Left will attack you in a hate-filled rage merely for expressing your opinion.

@SheaDiamond @kriscarpenter23 do you spew hate at everyone who has a different political stance than you?

— Jenna Jameson (@jennajameson) August 5, 2012

Ms. Jameson is continuing to try to explain her positions to the willfully ignorant, who think everything is about porn. Well, and Bush. He’s still to blame for everything under the sun, natch.

@rawls for the millionth time, I do not work in the adult industry anymore. I vote for people that can help with dept jobs and healthcare

Shrinking in fear, huh, Left? That’s apparent by your impotent insult-throwing. When you’ve lost Jenna Jameson, election night no longer looks like a sure thing, does it?

Change, the real kind not the HopeandChange ™ kind, is coming,

Dean Obeidallah apologizes to Romney grandchild ‘for being used as a prop’

Plenty are calling for an apology from MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry and her panel for their mockery of a Romney family photo on Sunday. What’s so funny about a family photo? The adopted grandchild is African-American, see, while everyone else in the photo is white. Now do you get it?

Dean Obeidallah was laughing along with the others on that panel, but he did apologize later — “to the baby for being used as a prop in a photo.”

http://twitter.com/#!/Deanofcomedy/status/417747703854923777

So the Romneys adopted the child to use as a prop in photos? Really? How deep does this hole go? Please, explain comedy to us.

The comedy was in the photo? It certainly wasn’t coming from the panel.

for Nov. 16

#NationalPapaJohnsDay is this Friday, 11/16. Show your support against job-killing legislation by standing with them. #IStandWithPapaJohns

— Harry(@Tark31) November 14, 2012

As Twitchy reported, Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter became the target of leftist vitriol when he announced that he expects franchise owners to reduce employees’ hours due to crushing Obamacare regulations. Dense liberals, blind to the reality of America under Obama, vowed to boycott Papa John’s restaurants. Evidently, they’re still in denial about what happened when they urged a boycott of Chick-fil-A this past summer.

Well, it looks like they’re about to be disappointed — and shocked — again. After Papa John’s came under fire last week, capitalism-loving citizens decided to organize a National Appreciation Day. The date for National Papa John’s Day has been officially set for this Friday, November 16, and supporters can’t wait to show their love for business owners and the free market. The event currently has over 15,600 participants, and that number’s still climbing.
