Teacher's Racist and Homophobic Rant in Classroom

Bob GrishamROGERSVILLE — School district officials are investigating allegations that a Lauderdale County High School teacher made slurs in the presence of students regarding first lady Michelle Obama and gays. Superintendent Jennifer Gray confirmed the investigation concerns the school’s head football coach, Bob Grisham, who also teaches driver’s education and psychology.

The investigation includes a 1-minute, 24-second audiotape of Grisham asking who knows who is behind the 600-calorie school lunch.

“Fat butt Michelle Obama,” he said. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

Male voices interject comments during the discussion, at one point referring to Michelle Obama as a “fat gorilla.”

Later in the tape, Grisham referred to the U.S. as going in the “wrong direction” and tells the students they can “get pissed off at me or not. You can go tell the principal, call the superintendent and tell her. I don’t believe in queers. I don’t like queers, I don’t hate them as a person, but what they do is wrong and an abomination against God.”The tape was reportedly recorded by a student Monday and took place on school campus during the school day.

Grisham told the TimesDaily on Wednesday afternoon he misspoke.“I misspoke in a debate-type situation,” he said. “I have no hatred toward anyone or any group. People that know my heart, they know that.”

Gray said a link to the audio recording was sent to her in an email.“It’s an unfortunate situation, and we hope to clear this up as soon as possible,” Gray said.

Once, just once, I wish someone would say “I did not misspeak, I meant what I said”

“I don’t believe in queers. I don’t like queers, I don’t hate them as a person, but what they do is wrong and an abomination against God.”

Absolutely nothing wrong with that statement and I agree 100%.

and BTW, I did not miss-post and I meant what I wrote.

“Teacher’s Racist and Homophobic Rant in Classroom”

Let me guess. He quoted the Constitution and the Bible. Now he will pay.

“Fat butt Michelle Obama,” he said. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

I don’t know what she weighs, but I agree Michelle Obama has a fat butt. Sue me.

“...what they (homosexuals) do is wrong and an abomination against God.”

That thought is consistent with the world’s major religions. I agree homosexuality is an abomination against God.

The teacher engaged in free speech and expressed religious sentiments which are rightfully protected under the First Amendment. From what I understand, the teacher was not speaking in an official capacity for the school itself, and the school is a public, aka government operated, institution. Therefore, the First Amendment protections apply.

You have to keep up, fat people are on the ridicule list, right up there with smokers.

His team made the state semi-finals. He is not.getting fired.

If he was he was a head coach in many Texas high schools, he’d make more money and have no.other duties.

Oh lordy - where’s the ketchup for those fries???
Actually, taking a second look, there do seem to be splotches of ketchup strewn among the fries. . .

Some fashion may look fine or just okay in person. But when photographed - ugh!
Like the ‘Black Widow’ dress she wore in Denver in 2008.
But did that dress actually look okay ‘in person’ even, do ya think???!

Evidently this continually happens with Meshell Obigmouthmama - no one photographs her in stuff before giving the okay or not, to wear in public where photos will be taken.
Then again, she probably could care less - ‘in your face, America.’

Not anymore. A teacher was fired in NJ for a facebook posting, saying her students are future criminals. She did this on her own time and on her own computer. She appealed the decision as far as she could, and she’s out of a job.

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.

At first glance at the title of this article I thought it read, “Teacher Ratched”.

( As in Nurse Ratched from “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.

As for the Teacher Ratcheds that have nested in education ( Canadian and in the U.S.) I wonder what Mc Murphy would have to say about all this homosexual indoctrination of children.
