WorldNetDaily: Reporter claims assault at 'racist' public school

You read that right.

Here, first of all, is WorldNetDaily's first report on the policies and aims of the Academia Semillas del Pueblo Charter School. (The last time I tried that link, at 4:52 p.m. EST (20:52 UTC), I got an "Under Construction" page from what looks like an implementation of Microsoft Internet Services.) Basically, the school exists to promulgate the agenda of the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan, the group wanting a retro-cession of the lands taken in the Mexican War back to Mexico.

The latest incident: a radio reporter wanted to interview the founder and principal of the school. He was turned away at the office, and left the campus. And then someone chased him, caught him in a flying tackle, and demanded on pain of a beating that he, the reporter, turn over his tape. (The tape had nothing on it but surface noise; remember, the reporter didn't get the interview.) And even that wasn't the end of it: as the reporter drove away, he discovered that he was pulling a tail. So he called his station, who effectively told all and sundry that this was going on. The tail then backed off.

Now I'm a relatively simple man. I was told that law-abiding adults do not settle disputes of this sort on the level of physical violence. And that certainly is never excusable when someone is leaving peaceably. And I ask you: what sort of example is that school setting for its pupils?

I would certainly urge the Los Angeles Unified School District to look into this.
