A sorry excuse for an apology

Alex Kunhardt, the Brooklyn teacher who sent an American soldier demoralizing letters written from his sixth-graders apologized yesterday, if you want to call it that.

"It was never my intention to demean or insult anyone," said Kunhardt, who was spotted tossing a snowboard in his car outside his Park Slope home before driving off yesterday morning.

"I never meant for the words of my students to hurt any of our troops. The responsibility for this action is mine alone, and I apologize."

A real apology consists of two things (three for Christians) 1. An identification of the wrongful act 2. A confession of culpability in the act and (for Christians) 3. A request for forgiveness.

While acknowledging the results of his action, Kunhardt never said that the action itself was wrong. Since he never admitted to any wrongful act, any “acceptance of blame” is meaningless -- blame for what?

His “apology” was nothing more than the trite blathering of a typical Liberal. He taught his students lies about soldiers in Iraq, then had them write those lies, then sent them to a soldier. Now he says it was never his intention to demean or insult anyone?!? Then to top it off, he insults everyone else by acting as if such a meaningless “apology” is sufficient.

In case you've misplaced them, the contact numbers are:

Superintendent Alison Sheehan, (718) 935-3686
Principal Xavier Castelli, (718) 369-7603
Parent Coordinator, Audrey Komaroff, (347) 563-5371
Regional Superintendent Marcia Lyles, (718) 935-3900

Let them know that Kunhardt's non-apology was not acceptable.

Blather it is my friend. Not only does he not make an 'apology', he surely doesn't acknowledge that he is brainwashing innocent children. Liberal teachers are terrorizing our children. Filling their heads with lies and aimless conjecture. It is sad this is happening in our country.
