WP, Teachers Use 9 Yr Olds For Agit-Prop

From an utterly shameless Washington Post:

4th-Grader Questions Rice on Waterboarding

By Alec MacGillis
Monday, May 4, 2009

Days after telling students at Stanford University that waterboarding was legal "by definition if it was authorized by the president," former secretary of state Condoleezza Rice was pressed again on the subject yesterday by a fourth-grader at a Washington school.

Rice, in her first appearance in Washington since leaving government, was at the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation’s Capital before giving an evening lecture at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue. She held forth amiably before a few dozen students about her love of Israel, travel abroad and the importance of learning languages, then opened the floor to their questions.

The questions had been developed beforehand by students with their teachers and had not been screened by Rice. At first, they were innocuous: What was it like growing up in segregated Birmingham, Ala.? What skill did she want to be best known for?

Then Misha Lerner, a student from Bethesda, asked: What did Rice think about the things President Obama’s administration was saying about the methods the Bush administration had used to get information from detainees?

Rice took the question in stride. saying that she was reluctant to criticize Obama, then getting to the heart of the matter…

Misha’s mother, Inna Lerner, said the question her son had initially come up with was even tougher: "If you would work for Obama’s administration, would you push for torture?"

"They wanted him to soften it and take out the word ‘torture.’ But the essence of it was the same," Lerner said

This is a textbook example of how the media propagandize against us each and every day.

No sane person can believe any fourth graders would ask: “What was it like growing up in segregated Birmingham, Ala.?” Or, "If you would work for Obama’s administration, would you push for torture?"

Just as no one can honestly believe that the Washington Post would have sent a reporter (and the AP a photographer) to cover a casual visit by Condi Rice to an elementary school.

But clearly the teachers who decided it would be fun to put these questions to Ms. Rice alerted the Washington Post – and voilà!

We have a perfect piece of anti-US agit prop – out of the mouths of babes.

    I don’t have an issue with it because 4th graders have about the mental acuity and maturity as WaPro reporters and other drooling liberals.

    But at least 4th graders still have the ability to listen.

    Would this not be considered a form of torturing children by the wacko left? You and I know that these poor Jewish children were taken advantage of and most likely grilled hours on end.( liken this to waterboarding)

    Have American Jews lost their minds? Bambi is setting up the greatest threat to Isreal in 40 years – yet the cabal of Jewish teachers and parents are playing “Friends of Bambi” at all costs…

    Little Johnny came home from school all upset. “What’s the matter?”, asked his mother.
    “Well”, Johnny replied, “Codoleezza Rice was at school today and I wanted to ask her to discuss string theory..” He started to sniffle, “…and all the other kids wanted to talk about torture and how to deal with terrorists!”

  5. Reality Bytes says:

    Ms. Rice’s retort @ Stanford: “We had several hundred Americans jumping out of 80 story windows and the president wanted to everything legally possible to make sure it wouldn’t happen again.”

    3000 Americans died from terrorists’ torture the morning of September 11th. Pushing & getting a court ruling that waterboarding is torture doesn’t make it so.

    Mr. President, if your daughters were kidnapped & under the threat of death, would you be willing to waterboard someone who knew where there were?

    Funny, I don’t remember anyone asking this question. Then again, given the oral sex they call presidential press conferences these days, maybe a blue dress should be mandatory attire for the next one.

    The kind of questions 4th graders ask about foreign travel/work, in my experience (that is, if they speak up at all) are: how long did it take you to travel someplace, what did you eat when you were there, what language do the people speak, etc. Kids are actually interested in this kind of stuff. They are not interested in whether schools were segregated in the 1950s or how the CIA (what’s that?) treated detainees (what are those?)

    • proreason says:

      Well heather, that depends on whether or not the 4th grader is running the country.

      If he’s running the country, then he is interested in questions about the availability of gyms, chest waxing, and connectivity for teleprompters.

    Great! Now I can train my 4yo to ask BO why it is a constitutionally protected right for “doctors” to be allowed to ram a pair of scissors into infants head as long as 15% or so of her body is still inside mommy.

    Jewish Primary Day School should be ashamed of inviting muslim press Al Jazeera to demean their school and America. Rice, should have ignored the mouthy whore, or suggested she go to Saudi Arabia and clean up the mutilating of women and men in the muslim extremists’ media own country. Instead of a vidio showing the witches own country, cutting off arms and ears, stoning women, they fabricated vidio filmage, to make the children think this was torture, when our own country tested it to be sure it was safe. Unbelievable the school has made it easy for every student to see such fabricated, reporting.
    These Jewish children who learn of the Holocast, and are being led to believe America is no better than Hitler. How can the school put this on their link.
    They really need to see what goes on in Al Jazeera’s own country Saudi Arabia, under the law, daily, to innocent people. No telling how many of those Jewish children will grow up and be muslims. Should rename the school. The name is misleading to call it Jewish when Muslim Sunni’s attend and learn at it. Children
    paying to be brainwashed.

      Those Jewish children being lied to by parents and teachers should see suicide bombing pictures, pictures of heads sawed off, pictures of the American U.S. soldier’s VA wards full of soldiers with missing body parts, no legs, arms, no faces, all because of some whore that straps a pack of bombs around her waste and enters a school in Russia a blows up children and teachers, or freely walks into a mosque and blows up women and children while they are praying to God.

      The American freedom the Jewish Primary Day School, to even exist in the U.S. America who allows freedom of every religion, the freedom of speech to ask their memorized rehearsed articulate questions, because of the freedom of assembly, provided to them, by American soldiers that lost their lives so they could exist in the human race, anywhere, period.

    Well, I guess Al Jazzera is trying to out do Rueters and CNN in becoming America’s official commi newscource. They have blood on their hands, they’ll never be able to wash clean. Money is the root of all evil. And they are evil.
    To release photo’s, it’s obvious the one soldier is sad that recieved the bibles, was immediately reminded of the code. I wanted to hug everyone of them. Yet, these evil blood money thirsty reporters, have given their pictures, ranking officers names, to the enemy, and risked their lives. I wanted to hug them all.
    God is all they have to cling to over there. As far as the soldiers, Christians know it’s a parabole, to be soldiers for Christ, and does not be battle. The songs my children learned in bible school “We’re in the Lord’s army” And “Onward Christian Soldier is not about war”
    I believe they were speaking about reaching out to other soldiers. And then it’s obvious that the one officer visiting the hospital was edited to watch, because he told the woman to tell the mother they were “praying” for her. Well, the muslims pray! Even Obama and Pelosi say the muslims are just like Christians believers. I think that retreat vidio should be shown in court. Love they neighbor.

    What these bully reporters are doing are ‘hate crimes”. They want our soldiers killed because they are Christians.
    Sorry, for posting so much on this. But, ya know. On the bright side, their spreading prayers and God’s Spririt across the earth. :)
