The Edu-Nazis?

Sic Willie has an especially controversial column on the Laurin Line today that is likely to raise more than a couple of eyebrows. Called "The New Ministry of Propoganda," our bad boy makes the case that South Carolina schools are basically using Nazi methods in framing the school choice debate.

We at FITS think that's probably a little overboard, but then again it is Sic Willie.

This isn't the first time that controversial references have been directed at educrats in South Carolina. The advocacy group "South Carolinians for Responsible Government" caused a stir awhile back after issuing a press release referring to State Superintendent Inez Tenenbaum as "Frau Tenenbaum." Mrs. Tenenbaum's Jewish husband, Samuel, was offended by the release.

Our bet is that Bill Robinson at The State or Diette Courrege at the Post and Courier is probably on the phone right now not only with Sam, but probably with the Dorchester School Board as well (whom Sic Willie referred to as the "Dorch-Reich" in his column).
