I find it interesting that it's OK for a teacher who believes Bush orchestrated 9/11 to teach a class on Islam because that's "encouraging students’ critical thinking by allowing analysis of even the most controversial ideas", but a science teacher who believes in creationism is considered kooky and ignorant. Isn't that kind of the same thing? Maybe we could get people who believe in the tooth fairy to teach dentistry...

Sarah, really now,

There's nothing in the article posted at LGF that says this professor believes Bush orchestrated 9/11. All it says is that he has "controversial" ideas about it. Show me the link that says otherwise.

If you are correct though, you still have to deal with the fact that the Right likes to have Ann "Wives of 9/11 Victims are Whores" Coulter running around like a transvestite on crack.

I found the original op-ed that this teacher wrote that set this all off. If you actually read it, you'll figure out pretty quickly that the guys at LGF are idiots. I'm really not sure why you don't know this already. Here's the link:

Will -- Clicking on Barrett's name on LGF takes you to this post:


Also, please see Barrett's segment on Hannity and Colmes, where he says, "I don't believe, I do know that 9/11 was an inside job.":


So, um, he did too say that the Bush administration was complicit in 9/11.

Then he's an assclown. But so is Hannity.
