Suddenly, peace is bad

Michelle Malkin, in yet another misguided attempt to show liberal bias, highlights the case of two high school students in suburban DC who are trying to get an elective class entitled "Peace Studies" cancelled. She ends her post with the following:

Good luck to Andrew Saraf and Avishek Panth: Fight the power!

"Fight the power" huh? Lets see, an high school offers an ELECTIVE class, not required for graduation, on peace, and the students and Michelle, are complaining that the teacher "is only giving one side of the story. He's only offering facts that fit his point of view."

Myself, I'm assuming that point of view is...um...peace. If students are interested in studying peace activism and peace activists, AND they have the capability of taking an elective, they select this course. What a liberal outrage!

Even better, those students who are 'fight(ing) the power' have never taken the class and have only sat in on one lecture. Their information came from the most sacred and trustworthy of sources...other high school students. I'm sure we all know how accurate information travelling from high school student to high school student is.

This is shocking evidence of further liberal bias. Michelle loves to point out stuff like this and she does everyone in this country a wonderful service by doing so, such as her hard hitting piece on Dana Milbank and his humor. Shockingly, especially to this blogger, Michelle never mentioned anything about Scott McLellan and Jeb Bush's ridiculous liberal swipes at Cheney. And Michelle....still nothing on Hannity stumping for Santorum.

Sadly, there are people out there who put stock in Michelle Malkin's opinion. Like a broken clock, she occasionally makes a good point. But I think that happens during random re-booting of her brain and in now way reflects on her actual cognitive abilities.

Would you say the same if they offered an elective titled War Studies in which students were taught military theory?

What would offend me about a war studies class in which students learned military theory? I'm not a pacifist generally and if students had the capability of taking an elective and that is what they were interested in...what is the problem? Thats why it is an 'elective'. Just because I'm against the war in Iraq doesn't make me against wars in general or against the military or military studies. Does you being in favor of the war in Iraq make you against peace?
