Apparently, vegan evangelist teacher Dave Warwak's fifteen minutes of fame isn't over yet. I commented a few days ago about Mr. Warwak's firing, and now it seems the nutty art teacher wants his job back and has filed an appeal. That didn't take long. I guess he figured out it's hard to buy tofu when you don't have a paycheck, but I digress. What's really incredulous here is Mr. Warwak's asinine accusations against the school district. Warwak accuses the school district of exposing him to "hatred, contempt, and ridicule". Is this clown for real? What Warwak is doing here is all too typical in today's society: he's playing the victim and refusing to take personal responsibility for his own actions. Warwak just doesn't get it. The district didn't open him up to "hatred, contempt, and ridicule", he did that to himself through his own actions. And now he doesn't have the manhood to take responsibility for those actions. We see this so much in America today, that it certainly doesn't surprise me, but it never fails to annoy and outrage me.
The spin that Warwak tries to put on his actions is equally as outrageous. Notice that Warwak claims he was only trying to educate students about the power of advertising in the visual arts when he demanded promotional posters for milk be removed from the cafeteria. Who does he expect to believe this lie? We know for a fact he was proselytizing to students. We know he was distributing vegan propaganda to students. And on top of that, we know he tried to hide it from parents and fellow faculty members. It seems Mr. Warwak is every bit as shameless in his self-serving, faux victimhood and in his intellectual dishonesty as he is in his zeal for vegan evangelism.
