There’s a reason we call The Detroit News by its more apt name, “The Detroit Spews.” What once was a great, proudly American paper has now dumbed down into a politically correct, pro-Islamist, lefty waste of time. Plus, its reporters–like David Shepardson and Gregg Krupa–fabricate “facts” and stories out of whole cloth, and its “editorial” page features an agent of Iran and Hezbollah as a regular columnist. Living in the Detroit area, we, frankly prefer the Detroit Free Press . . . if forced at gunpoint to make a preference from two unpreferables.
The latest outrage is the paper’s cover story today about alleged threats to the whining Detroit-area parents of exposed, lefty, America-hating Colorado teacher, Jay Bennish. Pops, John Bennish, alerted the Detroit Spews that “at least 12 people have called his home” threatening him and his family. This is front page news? We get threats every day for DEFENDING America.
And by the way, HOW on earth did any of these alleged “threateners” know where Bennish’s parents live? The Spews’ reporter fails to ask this very basic question, which casts doubt on the allegations of the elder Bennish. After all, Jay Bennish is in Colorado. And there are zero transcripts or recordings of threats noted in the story. Remember, these are the parents who probably taught him to grow up to hate his country and spread it to his students. Predictably, that issue isn’t raised in the story, either.
What’s more important, but buried deep toward’s the end of the article on the back page, is the barrage of threats to Sean Allen, the brave student who taped and exposed Bennish’s vitrolic “teachings”.
“Everybody’s mad” at Allen, Phil Tekle, 17, told the Denver Post. “People are saying that if they see him, they want to beat him up.”
We hope the Aurora School District is providing for Sean Allen’s safety. We also hope that there are lectures against “bullying” as there always are when kids are shot up at schools. This is a clear example where the free speech of young patriot Sean Allen might endanger him.
