Mike Butler: Bombers’ anti-West influence
“Dzhokhar was a normal American kid,” the flabbergasted, politically correct media reported after it was discovered that the Boston Marathon bombing was carried out by two Caucasian Muslim brothers, one an American citizen, the other likely a green-card holder. Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh came under liberal media attack for linking the bombers’ behavior to the “liberal elite intellectual thought” that infects the Boston community.
With the questions swirling of why two upwardly mobile young people in America could commit such acts, a good place to start would be the “educations” the two Tsarnaev brothers received, internet news service Newsmax reported this week.
Younger brother Dzhokhar graduated from the celebrated Boston high school Cambridge Rindge and Latin School. A graduate of that school has had years of anti-American claptrap crammed down his throat.
The media has widely quoted retired Cambridge Rindge teacher Larry Aaronson’s shocked reminiscences about Dzhokhar. Aaronson told The Boston Globe, “This is a progressive town, the People’s Republic, and how could this be in our midst?
Newsmax noted that Aaronson is an acolyte of the raving, America-hating, deceased “revisionist historian” Howard Zinn.
Zinn was a liberal elite darling. Zinn claimed his eyes were opened to the racist, imperialist horror that is America by writer I.F. Stone, who later was confirmed to be a KGB covert influence agent after the Iron Curtain fell and certain Soviet documents became public.
Aaronson, who retired in 2007, used to brag to anyone who would listen that he had taught Zinn’s textbook to Cambridge Rindge students since the beginning of his career in 1981.
Aaronson also proudly related how his students at Cambridge Rindge had included actor Matt Damon and Damon’s brother. In the movie “Good Will Hunting,” Matt Damon’s character said: “You wanna read a really good American history book? Read Howard Zinn’s ‘A People’s History of the United States.’ It will knock your socks off.”
Zinn’s contempt for America fairly drips from each word: “The deeply ingrained belief — no, not from birth but from the educational system and from our culture in general that the United States is an especially virtuous nation makes us especially vulnerable to government deception. It starts early, in the first grade, when we are compelled to ‘pledge allegiance’ (before we even know what that means), forced to proclaim that we are a nation with ‘liberty and justice for all.’
Aaronson appeared to be more than a teacher Dzhokhar once had. Dzhokhar lived just about three houses down from Aaronson’s apartment, so they would talk from time to time after Dzhokhar's graduation in 2011.
The older brother Tamerlan appeared that he was a follower of a Lebanese-Australian extremist cleric whose messages of hatred for Western culture were prominent on Tamerlan’s YouTube playlists, and he may have been taught terrorist techniques during a recent trip abroad.
New Zealand is not beyond having academics brainwashing students with horror stories of racism, and imperialism. Look no further than Ranginui Walker, Leonie Pihama, and Linda Tuhiwai Smith – and they’re currently on a government-appointed panel advising on the constitution.
