John Huppenthal, Arizona’s Superintendent of Public Instruction, admits that he went to online forums and “occasionally dipped into the morass of incivility.”

His comments first starting popping up online in 2011 under the names Falcon9 and Thucydides and commented on posts about the economy, abortion and education.

Huppenthal’s comments included calling people who receive public assistance “lazy pigs” and he went on to put the blame of the Great Depression solely on the shoulders of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He also claimed that the president wrote in his memoir that “he was born in Kenya!!!”

Under the name Falcon9, he wrote, “We now know that (Franklin D. Roosevelt) was almost completely responsible for the great depression. 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.”

The post continued: “Meanwhile, 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).” (Parentheses were in the original post.)

Huppenthal’s phony apology began with the trite, “If I’ve offended anybody…”

      picky, picky, picky, that’s what makes History so boring at exam time.

      next time, try playing Limpbag’s Loony School of Historical Hockeypuck. Not only do you get to pull dates and facts out your stinky blazer, you’ll always get a perfect score on the finals.

    I wasn’t aware that Cliven Bundy had a flat screen TV. But it makes sense, why else would he be driving through a public housing development in Vegas? – other than to claim it belonged to him?
