On November 7, an elementary school teacher in south central Louisiana allegedly told her class of fourth graders that she was attending Americas funeral because Barack Obama won the presidential election, according to a report by KATC, the local ABC television affiliate.

Oh, come on. The Dems push their crap on the kids every chance they get. Plus, this teacher is probably right.
That was a pretty dumb thing to do.
Oh my God! a teacher telling the truth! there must be a lot of angry parents.
How many threads have you seen here of stupid teachers being castigated for being on the other side? That teacher, whether right about this issue or not, was none too bright to say that to a class of 4th graders.
I said the same thing: “Every 200 years, democracy commits suicide.”
My bet: She’s fired before the week is out.
Just like Germany with kids turning in teachers. Watch out Dems, you might say something they don’t like then you’ll be next.
I happen to agree with her, but it was definitely dumb to say that to her class of 4th graders, just like it would be dumb to say the opposite.
Your post is right on the mark. Precisely what I had in mind to post.
We are talking about 4th graders here. Politics has no place here, right or left. It is as wrong for a conservative opinion as it is for a liberal opinion for exactly the same reason. I hope that she lives to teach another day but she should be corrected for this lapse.
Mmm mmm mmm!
I’m not sure I follow. I have no problem with a teacher expressing their view point. I do have a problem with teachers indoctrinating children into socialism. As far as I know it has never happened the other way but if it does start, I would be willing to discuss it after 130 years or so.
It is a true statement...America is dead and the world is headed for a very very dark period...exceeding anything we have ever seen or heard of.
Wonder how many times YAHOO has posted when teachers make leftist remarks to the class. The teacher may have over-stepped her bounds, but why is this news only when it doesn’t lean left???
Hypocritical fuss over this. But when a teacher teaches kids the “0bama song” thass allright!
Nor can any rational teacher pretend that it makes a whit of sense having a distant bureaucracy stick its nose into the local class room, the local physician's office, or the business of any individual in any local community's negotiating a mortgage loan on his family residence. And that rational teacher needs to be honest as to what were the grievances set forth in the Declaration of Independence; the same sort of grievances that all rational, traditionally minded Americans, have with the ever more intrusive Federal Bureaucracy, today.
I'd say the teacher is "brighter" than a Dem teacher who says Obozo's the greatest thing since sliced bread. They say stuff like that all the time and get away with even though they are absolutely wrong. At least this teacher is saying something with more truth to it.
Guess it's OK, however, to teach them about homosex. (FTR, I agree with you -- 4th grade is too early to teach them about any of this stuff.)
She’s going to scare the children!
Not that teachers spoonfeeding pseudo-science on global warming, overpopulation, the extinction of the rainforest, etc. creates within these fragile minds terror, anxiety and dread.
At least this teacher is correct, and Obama hinself has boasted from day-1 that he plans to “fundamentally transform” the USA.
Of course, I bring up the other stuff because other than Twitchy.com, I haven't those tweets (against Romney, naturally) discussed anywhere. And as a school teacher, let me add, plenty of teachers are quick to give their opinions, but we never hear much about it, because it usually toes the liberal line.
Perhaps she could have been more balanced, and incorporated the positions of both sides. For example, she could say ‘The country is screwed, and it’s all the fault of “MMM, MMM, MMM, Barack Hussein Obama...”’
I agree with her but she had no business saying it to her class and should be disciplined as outlined by the districts code of conduct.
Glad to hear that the normal liberal indroctination doesn’t apply unfortunately as this teacher probably has it right.
OH MY!!! Well lets have the “Salem Witch Trials” again....we can not have people in America running around telling the truth about anything...these little ‘heads of mush” must be filled with only dems crap!!!! I see Mather coming now...court in session....
Well she could have said it and then given out condoms and everything would have been fine.
Smarter as a teacher guide the students toward questioning and logical thinking than dumping an opinion on them.
Oh right. I’m sure the 4th graders are scarred for life. The HugeManity of it all!
And Raciss....don’t forget raciss.
“I agree with her but she had no business saying it to her class and should be disciplined as outlined by the districts code of conduct.”
Isn’t there some sort of “it’s not wrong if it’s true” rule that should come into play here?
But the left can have kids sing about barry S. and that is ok?
For once, a public school teacher gets it right.
But there’s some asshole teacher who supports Obama waiting for people like us to become hypocrites to their values.
IE...turn into liberals.
