Arizona's Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal this week admitted he was the author of a series of pseudonymous blog posts describing people who receive welfare as "lazy pigs." He also compared Planned Parenthood to Nazis, and said the organization is responsible for most abortions among Black people in America.
"The comments, under various pseudonyms including Falcon9 and Thucydides, have been appearing since 2011," reports The Arizona Republic. ""I probably have 300,000 words out on the Internet, and 100 of them are getting me in trouble," Upppenthal told the paper, shamelessly. He is currently running for re-election.
Under the monikers, Huppenthal joined discussions and shared views on issues including abortion, the economy, education and child protection. Some examples:
• "There is no aspect of (Child Protective Services) nationwide which protects children. No correlation between spending on CPS and child safety," Thucydides posted in January on Blog for Arizona. "The only factors which provide safety for children are employment of parents and good schools on the positive side and welfare enrollment on the negative side."
• "It was Darwin, not Hitler, who named the Germans the master race," Thucydides posted in September 2013 on the blog Seeing Red AZ. "It was Darwin who expressed approval of eliminating both Jews and Africans. Hitler worked to eliminate the Jews. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was given the job of eliminating African-Americans. Hitler fed 6 million Jews into the ovens. Sanger has fed 16 million African-Americans into the abortion mills."
• "We now know that (Franklin D. Roosevelt) was almost completely responsible for the great depression," Falcon9 posted in 2013 on Blog for Arizona. "Only in liberal mythology did FDR 'save' the nation. ... Worse yet, Roosevelt's disastrous economic policies drug down the whole world and directly led to the rise of a no-name hack named Adolph Hitler who was going nowhere until Germany's economy went into the tank."
• "Obama is rewarding the lazy pigs with food stamps (44 million people), air-conditioning, free health care, flat-screen TV's (typical of "poor" families)." (Editor's note: Parentheses included in posting.)
