PHOENIX, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Arizona Schools Superintendent John Huppenthal broke down in tears at the end of a press conference on Wednesday, but refused to resign.

Huppenthal is under fire for writing anonymous blog posts over the last few years that insulted people who speak Spanish and people who get welfare. He also connected Jared Loughner to President Obama. 

Huppenthal made the comments on various blogs, all under pseudonyms. He finally admitted earlier this month that he was the author of all the posts after bloggers connected the dots.
 
Here are some of Huppenthal's blog statements:

"No Spanish radio stations, no Spanish billboards, no Spanish TV stations, no Spanish newspapers. This is America, speak English." 

"I don't mind them selling Mexican food as long as the menus are mostly in English. And, I'm not being humorous or racist. A lot is at stake here."

"Jared Loughner's act was logical once you understand what he was thinking. He just wasn't very good at articulating his thoughts but those thoughts and the intensity of which he partook of them gave him an incredible sense of superiority over us mere mortals. A nihilist, Loughner feels that we are all so many inconsequential flecks of dust and that his act had no meaning at all. Not much discussion of holding these philosophies accountable for this debacle."

"Jared was a "fervent" atheist, smoked pot "daily" and his beliefs were described as "leftist." Bill Ayers, the President's mentor, is the CEO of the school activist program running at Jared's high school ,which Jared participated in. Want to connect some more dots?"

"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)." 

"The only factors which provide safety for children are employment of parents and good schools on the positive side and welfare enrollment on the negative side."

"Hitler worked to eliminate the Jews. Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood was given the job of eliminating African-Americans. Hitler fed 6 million Jews into the ovens. Sanger has fed 16 million African-Americans into the abortion mills."
