Jason Glicker is a substitute teacher at Grosse Pointe North High School in Detroit, MI. He recently had a discussion with his students about various topics that include September 11th, World War II, and false flag terror attacks. What makes Mr. Glicker’s approach a bit different from anything his students have ever heard before is that he doesn’t exactly subscribe to the “official” stories surrounding these historical events. Rather than following textbook curriculum, Glicker chose to share some alternative ideas. One of his students happened to capture it all on video and share it on the Internet. Now, parents and mainstream media outlets are up in arms, because according to them, his theories are a bit “bizarre.”
“The ISI is funded indirectly by the CIA so, whether they knew it or not, they were funding the terrorists,” he explains. Then: “One of the hijackers, Mohamed Atta, he was not a Muslim extremist because, (a) He’d been living here for years. He had an American girlfriend. He was supposedly addicted to coc aine.”
Glicker argues that Atta was “not a Muslim extremist” because “if you’re a Muslim fundamentalist, you know, you would stick to, you know, the laws of Islam.” Next, a confused student asks why the September 11 terrorists killed themselves? “That’s where it gets weird,” the physics sub cheerfully responds. “That’s where I think it’s somewhere along the lines of something like MKUltra where they’re, like, brainwashing these people.”
I think it was pretty cold to record him and then ruin his career by plastering it all over the Internet. We didn't see the beginning. Maybe a student asked about it due to some conversation they were having that was casual initially. It is a physics class - so why else would he be so off topic.
My kids teacher talks about conspiracies (non facts), and it doesn't bother me because my child and I talk about it, and we sort out truth from opinion - thereby teaching him to think about what everyone says critically. It isn't anything major but he has them. Such as - those 9/11 hijackers being crazy radicals (we know some had their families threatened so were forced), or the bible being a bunch of BS (didn't say BS but definitely eluded to it). Your kids will meet all kinds of people (and teachers are people). I think the lesson here should be - treat others as you would like to be treated. Why wasn't this man given a chance to discuss this in private. Why didn't the student approach him if it bothered them that bad? Or go to the principal? This is a cowardly way to go about communicating your grievances IMO.edit on 21-2-2014 by Dianec because: I'm a sloppy types tonight.

I think that substitute teacher is one of our own! He's gotta have an ATS account! Maybe he's even gonna post in this thread!
I would have a bit of a problem, if my kids were in the class, but he was only a sub in a physics class. Kids are going to hear all kinds of theories, eventually. At least he wasn't some "role model" coaches, or something.....
I'm all for teaching kids alternatives to and problems with the official stories of events such as 9/11, but how about presenting a couple simple points in an organized fashion instead of rambling on like a yutz?
Since it's a physics class, why not explain the controversy over the physics behind the collapse of the Twin Towers a la Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth?
Alternatively, hows about passing out copies of the Operation Northwoods document and having a nice discussion about it?
I appreciate his intention, but it was a poor performance and will probably get him in some hot water.

Remember when the Nazis taught kids to stick in anyone who questioned the regime?
Well you have just seen this in action in America. The kids are brainwashed.
