Reporter details rise of 'white supremacy' in US by highlighting antisemitic rhetoric from fired black high school teacher

Emily Schrader conveniently ignored that the now-fired teacher is black.

Recently, a California Bay Area high school teacher was fired following an extensive investigation into his alleged anti-Semitic lectures, which were said to include performing Nazi salutes in class. 

Shortly after those incidents took place, a leftist reporter by the name Emily Schrader took the opportunity to blame the occurrence on 'anti-Semitic white supremacy' in an article titled, "Under attack: White supremacists lead antisemitic charge in U.S." 

Nowhere in Schrader's article does she mention that the fired teacher she references, Henry Bens, is black. 

Schrader contacted The Post Millenial to say that she did not write the article's headline and has requested for it to be changed.

"The article's examples are mostly not white supremacy but radical left with ethnic studies curriculum and DEI initiatives that actively exclude Jews," she explained.

The second paragraph of Schrader's story notably states, "American Jews are now at a crossroads as far-right antisemitism is also on the rise from white supremacist groups in the United States."

No examples of this supposed far-right antisemitism by white supremacist organizations are provided in the story. 

The former teacher of Mt. Eden High School in Hayward, California was fired by the school district after being placed on administrative leave earlier this year for distributing copies of a pamphlet to his 10th-grade class called, "The Hidden Tyranny," an alleged anti-Semitic hoax document that says Jews are trying to achieve world domination by manipulating US foreign policy, according to The Jewish News.

The document's subtitle reads: "The Issue that Dwarfs All Other Issues, the Satanic Power Which Promotes and Directs Chaos in Order to Lay Low All Civilization in Preparation for a Well-outlined Plan for World Dictatorship."

Bens, who is a pastor of a congregation in Alameda, and a self-described Black Israelite, has been accused by his students of making the "Heil Hitler" salute in class on multiple occasions. Students said that Bens justified the salute by saying that the truth had been hidden from them and that he was helping them "remove the blindfold" to the evil Jews, which was revealed during the investigation.

In addition, Bens gave his students instructions to annotate the text and underline passages that discuss how Jews influence and subvert social hierarchies.

Students began to compile evidence against Bens, which resulted in him being placed on administrative leave in February.

District Superintendent Jason Reimann announced the board's decision to terminate Bens during a meeting on Wednesday after an outside investigation found that he had violated state law by using anti-Semitic texts in his classroom, according to the outlet.

The Hayward Unified School District Board of Education voted unanimously to fire a "certificated employee," but did not disclose Bens's name.

When reports of Bens's anti-Semitism began to surface, a publication authored a news report about the rise in anti-Semitism at the hands of white supremacists. The author of the report referenced Bens but did not disclose his race. Bens is reportedly a black immigrant from Somalia.

According to a letter issued by HUSD, the district found Bens violated California Education Code Section 51500, which states: "A teacher shall not give instruction and a school district shall not sponsor any activity that promotes a discriminatory bias on the basis of race or ethnicity, gender, religion, disability, nationality, or sexual orientation, or because of a characteristic listed in Section 220."

Zev Kvitky, a spokesman for HUSD, said of the investigation: "We understand that the allegations made against him are serious and hope the school district conducted a fair and thorough investigation. HEA has always fought to make Hayward schools safe and inclusive for all students, while also ensuring due process and fair treatment for all of our educators."

Administrators at Mt. Eden were first made aware in December when Bens supplemented a known antisemitic book to the district-mandated Holocaust curriculum. Teachers say he told other staff members about the material and made no secret of it. Both teachers and students slammed the district for taking too long to terminate Bens, according to the outlet.

It was also revealed that in a religious study class in November 2022, Bens reportedly said "We don't believe in Jewish religion" and "There's no such thing in the Bible as Jewish religion," as well as the Jewish people are not actually Jews but are just "acting like Jews."
