N.C. TEACHER TELLS STUDENT HE COULD BE ARRESTED FOR TALKING BADLY ABOUT OBAMA
The Blaze ^ | 5/20/12 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 05/21/2012 8:16:44 AM PDT by KansasGirl

Last Monday, a high school student in North Carolina engaged his social studies teacher in a heated debate about politics and the two leading presidential candidates. During the exchange, the teacher (an obvious Obama supporter) got very angry with the student and accused him of disrespecting the president. She even went so far as to tell the boy that he could be jailed for speaking ill of Obama.

School System is based in Salisbury, North Carolina.

I am not sure the name of the school involved.

They will not release the name of the teacher.

Listening to Glenn, Stu and Pat discuss this now.

The teacher has been suspended...she should be fired for sheer stupidity.

Jail? If that’s going to get you thrown in jail there haven’t been enough jails built in the history of the world to hold those of us who could be jailed for that.

Issues aside, the teacher totally lost control of that classroom. The students were baiting her. She fell into the trap.

I was thinking the same thing, but here is a point. The new law Obama just had passed would have you put in jail by the Secret Service if you spoke out in his almighty presence.Or happened to have a sign.

“Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush?” she said of former President Bush. “Do you realize you are not supposed to slander the president?”

I'd like to know how many people got arrested for badmouthing Bush; seems to me I saw a lot of derogatory signs and statements about him, sure don't remember any arrests.

Jails/prison camps, it's all the same thing to Marxists. Recall that the Weather Underground figured there would be 25,000,000 Americans who would have to be killed as they would resist all efforts at Communist re-education.

This teacher was giving the boy his final warning.

I'm more concerned he and his family should be concerned over other things. This is earth shattering for zer0 supporters. The light of truth has been shone. They will not be happy. Pray the zer0 supporters remain in camp or this could get nasty.

The teacher's name is out there on the interwebs now.

I blame the principal; apparently the teacher has been pushing an agenda all year but it took a candid camera episode to bring about correction.

I think we all know nice folks with ideological blind spots that lead to irrational behavior, and maybe that's what we're dealing with here. As a professional, each teacher should keep his personal irrationality out of the classroom, but it's the principal's job to make sure all the teachers maintain a neutral playing field for ideas, and I guarantee the principal knew that this one teacher - and how many more just at this one school? - were violating that principle on a daily basis.

Hopefully the incident will be a warning to other teachers across the state and the well-meaning ones will modify their behavior.

“...Youtube will probably just delete the video...”

Download it and save it. It will be out here forever, don’t worry.

This woman is an unbelievable, unbalanced freak and needs to find a job in another field...like Mickey D’s Customer Relations...

Glad to hear the kid standing up for himself - “I’ll say what I want”. And she tries to bully him by getting in his face - you can just see the top of her head bobbing in the left-side of the screen as she comes down the aisle after him.

Listening to the whole exchange, she becomes increasingly incensed and starts SHRIEKING at the kid...who then proceeds to stand his ground and laugh at her - which gets her even more spun up.

She also threatens him about “not doing his work”, and says it’s criminal to disrespect the Pres.

I’m at a loss to understand what some idiot AA-hire moron like this could even begin to teach kids...except how NOT to behave.

She’ll learn. Next time she won’t argue. She will just phone the secret service and make up a big fat lie about the student. They will then come and arrest him in the classroom for making threats. She will then be right.

I heard some audio from this incident on 105.9 WMAL (mostly conservative talk radio in Washington, DC) ... she sounded seriously unhinged. Callers thought she was typical of NEA leftists.

Name is Tanya Dixon-Neely.

Hmmmph. Never trust hyphenated wymyn.

“...This is just one of many unbalanced teachers out there....”

...and yet another reason that justifies my spending $$$ to send my kids through parochial school.

We know all the teachers personally, they’re about 95% conservative, and the school has have common cultural, philosophical, and - American - beliefs - like my family does.

I’m sure there’s some good public schools around the country, but the ones in my area are infested with this same sort of garbage.

It was good to hear that kid stand up to the shrew...and basically laugh at her - sometimes, the deterioration of the school system works AGAINST the libtards.

It seems that, like the fraud himself, jughead's followers have a very thin skin.

I wonder if this teacher goes around with that arrogant nose-in-the-air like obammy? Truly pathetic compensation for being a big fat nothing is what it is.

People need to realize that students will bring their cell phones (I-Pods, etc) into the classroom, and sometimes record what is going on.

It is good that this teacher was caught in the act.

Normally, I would say that cell phones in the classroom are a bad thing (which is how I believe this was recorded).

Maybe the left will start to behave knowing they might be recorded.

I went to parochial school for my first 5 years. When I entered public school, I was at least a year ahead of the other students. I was able to get into advanced placement courses in high school.
