Diantha Harris of Fayetteville teaches fifth grade in Cumberland County. She left Asheville in 2004. Bloggers on Thursday had identified her as an Asheville teacher and said she “willingly browbeat and belittle a student in class for her choice of a presidential candidate,” according to Tundra Tabloids, a blog about Islamic extremism.
“Asheville – A former city schools teacher filmed in a Swedish documentary talking about politics in the classroom is drawing fire from bloggers for “belittling” a student who supported Republican presidential candidate John McCain.
Harris, in an interview today with the Asheville Citizen-Times, said that’s not true. A crew from Sweden’s public broadcasting company STV visited her classroom in May for the documentary “From Bill to Barack.”
UPDATE: Pikkupoika informs the TT that Charles Johnson REFUSES TO GIVE ACCREDITATION to the Tundra Tabloids…
Pikkupoika: Guess who has your video posted? Of course, without any credit to you.. and even this: 33 Charles 11/06/08 2:33:36 pm reply quote 6I’m not going to send any traffic to tundratabloid. Links to that site will be deleted.
UPDATE: there is also this: Charles Johnson: ‘tundratabloid’ is run by a rabidly anti-LGF hater, who supports Eurofascists.
Well Chuckles of course got it all wrong, I don’t hate LGF, I just think that the editor is an arrogant ass and self defeating primadonna. And the TT does not support ‘Eurofascists’, something of which ol’ CJ can’t even define. Charles Johnson uses the term ‘Fascists’ to smear everyone and everything that refuses to dance to his tune and pay homage to the “lidless One”.
UPDATE: Robert Spencer says it best here (to his readers) about LGF and Charles Johnson:
“I am asking you and everyone else who reads this not to go hatin’ on Charles Johnson. Do not write to him. Let us show here that we are operating on a higher level than the defamation and lie factory that Little Green Footballs, starring Killgore Trout, Sharmuta, and medaura, has become.”
