FRANKLIN, Tenn. - Music City is full of songwriters, hoping to land that big break. But a now former Middle school football coach in Williamson County said writing a politically-charged country song got him fired, after it rubbed a few parents the wrong way.
26 year old Bryan Glover is not shy about his political opinions. He is proud tea party Republican and felt compelled to voice his disappo More..intment in the current administration through his music. But he never thought sharing his new song would leave him unemployed.
The song is called, "When You're Holding A Hammer, Everything Looks Like A Nail." It is a reference to Glover's frustrations with the current administration and President Obama. Glover co-wrote the tune with a parent on the Grassland Middle School football team. He never thought sending it out to friends, family and player's parents could put the hammer on the nail of his job with the school.

Nor should it have done so....
Who was the leftie that complained?
I heard this story about a year-and-a-half ago. What is new about it? IOW, what is compelling and new so that I should click the link to learn more?
Comrades, there are new rules for acceptable speech in the new USSA.
They are not written down, but they are very real.
Please forwrd with all folks you know.. help go viral! :)
Except he should have realized that the government school system in our country is fascist and that liberals are willing to destroy you if you disagree with them.
My kid will be going there next year. At least I know what to expect from the administration in that school.

Judging by the number of hits on Youtube, I don’t think he has to worry about his teaching job. He should get enough off of personal appearances.
Sad thing is he’ll never be able to work in the public sector again, especially schools. Once they know your politics you are blacklisted.
Jeesh, what arraogance. So you think that just because you know about it that everyone else should to?! Give us a break.
So they fired him right after they fired all the school teachers who had their kids singing songs about ‘Dear Leader’ /sarc
Actually, he has a point. This is an old story, and there were many stories about it on FR. My first thought, too, was is there something new? Did he just now get fired? I’d like to understand a little better.
I'm sure there are/were others here that did not know this.
Damn all the clap-trap to hell from anyone who knew about it before today. WTFO...
