The State Board of Education President Debe Terhar, in all her professional glory
But she does say we “need to step back and think about it and look at history” to see that tyrants have disarmed their citizens.
Terhar, a Cincinnati Republican elected last week by the 19-member school board to a second term as its president, recently posted the picture with this commentary: “Never forget what this tyrant said: ‘To conquer a nation, first disarm its citizens.’ — Adolf Hitler.”
The photograph apparently originated with the Facebook page of Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children, which 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 Oswalt when you need him?”
When the Sipatch asked her about her Facebook post she said, “I’m not comparing the president to Adolf Hitler, it’s the thought of disarming citizens, and this has happened throughout history. What’s the true intention of the Second Amendment? It was to protect us from a tyrannical government, God forbid.”
Why is the State Board of Education President trolling racist Facebook pages in the first place, let alone making offensive comparisons to a genocidal maniac?
In one simple Post, Debe Terhar shows herself to:
- Have a serious lack of professionalism
- Questionable judgment
- The inability to apologize
- Lacking in historical understanding
- A belief that we are stupid enough to believe she wasn't comparing the President to Hitler
Apparently in Terhar's world, only educators are to be held accountable.
