Red-faced educrats at New York City's Department of Education say they will personally apologize to Pfc. Rob Jacobs and his family for sending the Iraq-bound GI a batch of letters purportedly written by six graders who trashed the troops as war criminals.
Teacher Alex Kunhardt told the New York Post that he assigned his students to write Jacobs as part of their social-studies homework. But the majority of letters Kunhardt's kids produced sounded like they were written by Michael Moore.
One girl told Jacobs that he is "being forced to kill innocent people" and challenged him to name an Iraqi terrorist. "I know I can't," she insisted.
Another girl explained, "I strongly feel this war is pointless."
A third letter predicted that because President Bush had been re-elected, "only 50 or 100 [soldiers] will survive."
A fourth accused soldiers of "destroying holy places like mosques."
"I want to think these letters were coached by the teacher or the parents of these children," Jacobs said told the Post an interview from Camp Casey in Korea, where he awaits deployment to Iraq. "It boggles my mind that children could think this stuff."
Where do you think these children learned these things? Teachers? Likely. Parents? Likely. Old media? Likely.
These young scholars have no idea why our soldiers fight and that is disgusting. Instead of praising the sacrifice, they have been taught to condem. And the blue staters think that they are enlightened and better than the rest of the country? Sounds a lot like child abuse....
