Ohio State Board Of Education President Compares Obama To Hitler



Until this week, few people in Ohio could have named the president of the State Board of Education, even if Vanna White gave them a sneak peak at all of the vowels and most of the consonants.

Presidents of these kinds of boards don’t usually make headlines unless they abscond with the funds or kidnap a baby. Debe Terhar, however, has made headlines with flair. Recently elected to a second term as board president, Terhar decided to leap into the debate about arming teachers. Concerned only about the safety of Ohio’s children, Terhar put up a post on her Facebook account, comparing President Barack Obama’s positions on gun control to something a crazed Nazi dictator might favor.

When the post came to light, Terhar quickly assured Catherine Candisky, reporting for the Columbus Dispatch,that—oh, no, oh, no—she wasn’t comparing Obama to Hitler. She only wanted people to “step back and think about it and look at history” and realize that tyrants always get their start by disarming citizens. So she posted a picture of Hitler and added this nugget of wisdom: “Never forget what this tyrant said: ‘To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.’ — Adolf Hitler.”

And you thought the question was “school children.”

3. Why is it....

that Tea Bagging assholes, who don't know dick about history, are always exhorting us to "just examine history."

We have examined history, you ignorant jack-wagons, and it tells us that you're a fringe movement that has about 18 months left before becoming an essay question in some future undergraduate's history exam.

5. Beyond appalling - this from the Columbus Dispatch: "Where's Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him?"



"Let’s give Terhar the benefit of the doubt. Maybe she’s not a narrow-minded bigot, even if the picture she used to make her point did originate with a Facebook page called “Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children,” an unfortunate hijacking of a moniker familiar to any Marine. As Candisky explains, the page, “features a variety of anti-Obama, pro-gun posts and photos, such as scantily clad women hoisting large guns, a polar bear with the words ‘Holy f*** I’m glad I’m white,’ and another saying ‘Where’s Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him?’” "

6. Someone in Ohio needs to start a petition to get her to resign

Children don't need this kind of role model.

8. I just heard about this today in Columbus, OH

Debe Terhar said something to the effect that she should have kept her
thoughts private but she did not say she was wrong to compare Obama
to Hitler. She is part of really radicals that took power after the 2010
elections in Ohio and they are about killing public schools, taking the
profits from the sale of liquor and running through a private "thing"
set up by the governor, and God knows how many different scams.

11. K&R....

That's fair if I can compare Ohio to Nazi Germany and she's John Kasich's Eva Brown.

That's really not fair though, Eva Brown was a refined and well educated woman.
