  • And It Happened In My State Comrade!

    Really, they have no shame. They don't even try to hide their bias anymore!

    Earlier this week, The Daily Caller reported on a Connecticut high school senior who discovered that his taxpayer-funded school’s Internet firewall was censoring the state Republican Party, the National Rifle Association’s homepage, anti-abortion groups and even the Vatican.

    The school district superintendent, Jody Ian Goeler, has now tried to explain himself. It’s not pretty.

    The district is trying to determine the reason for the inconsistency and if bias is pervasive enough to justify switching to another content filtering provider,” Goeler said, according to a press release obtained by The DC.

    This stance is a slight improvement from the superintendent’s previous position. The Nonnewaug High School senior, Andrew Lampart, said Goeler had previously informed him that some political sites and, apparently, the Vatican must be blocked to prevent “hate speech” from seeping into the school.

    The controversy flared up after Lampart conducted research for an in-class debate on gun control. The NRA’s website was blocked, he said. However, a host of anti-gun sites remained easily accessible.
