Student defends criticism of Obama after being berated by teacher (photo included)
FoxNews.com ^ | Published May 22, 2012

He wanted to "laugh" when he heard the teacher suggest he could be arrested for criticizing a sitting president.

"Honestly, at the time I wanted to laugh at her, because I've been taught all my life that nobody can take your opinion," He said he knew that it takes an actual threat against the president, not just criticism, to be arrested.

"(The teacher) doesn't want to hear anything but what she believes, and ... if you disagree, you get berated and put down," Rogers said. "I just decided to finally get some proof of it."

"Didn't Obama bully somebody though?" a student in the North Carolina classroom asked when the report was brought up, referring to an incident Obama described in his memoir "Dreams From My Father." In the book, Obama wrote that, as a child, he once pushed a female classmate after other students taunted them

The teacher, in the video, said she didn't know whether Obama bullied anyone -- but the argument quickly escalated, as the teacher yelled at the student, telling him "there is no comparison."

"He's running for president," she said of Romney. "Obama is the president."

The teacher later said: "Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush?"

The student told the teacher that someone can't be arrested "unless you threaten the president."

The Salisbury Post reported Monday that district school officials suspended the teacher in the course of their investigation into the incident.

Rogers' mother Gina told Fox News she was "shocked" when she heard the tape. She said her son had told stories about the classroom arguments, but she didn't realize they were this "extreme."

"I don't feel the teacher should have started a political discussion if she wasn't willing to hear both sides," she said.

Cool - now she has the free, paid time to sign up for Obama’s civilian army.

I can’t wait for her to yell at me some about what my Right’s are.

Yes Ms Numbskull was rewarded with a paid suspension meaning a paid vacation. In the dreaded private sector a suspension is unpaid. This is why incompetent slugs love gov’t sector jobs.

The Principal seemed more concerned that this got out to the media, than he was by what actually happened.

Would that this incident was really rare! What brought this to public attention was the gutsy student who managed to record the incompetent teacher/bully. Let us hope that this causes a rash of these recordings to wake people up to how our youth are being deliberately misinformed, and led astray.

We all saw the eventual result in the youth attending Obama rallies in 2008, cheering in staccato tones, like the automatons in the Nuremberg stadium in 1934, for the demagogue in charge.

Name and pic of the teacher, please.

Yup, I know the “publik skool” admin is trying to keep that silent, but we’re past the time of civility here. Expose that ignorant sl** for what she is...a liberal idiot with no education trying to “eddicate” our unfortunate children.

Maybe she could show him where the barber shop is located, and keep him away from Dunkin Donuts!

Ditto. Kid seems to think clearly and has the courage to stick by a conservative/libertarian position while speaking truth to leftist power. A little attention to his appearance will enhance his cred.

Unless he just sticks to FR, in which case no one knows or cares what you look like. (For that I’m thankful!)

I think it's time for James O'Keefe to hire some new "employees". Perhaps he can go undercover as a janitor at a school.

It’s summertime, school is out. Most teachers are on a ten-month contract, paid over 12 months. This “suspension” is on paper only.

This teacher should be fired, Forget this incident, if you listen to the tape she has lost (or never had )control of her class.
As a retired teacher,I have witnessed this happen to many a inexperienced teachers. They go into the classroom with the intention of being a “cool” teacher and their friend.
If you don't take command of the room the 1st day you may never get it back again.
I had my “first Day speech”.. I would say, It's my job to prepare you for the real world. There are a few rules I will totally enforce.
1. No student will prevent another student from learning.
2. There are no “stupid” questions, and no laughing at others questions.
3. I will treat each one of you like young adults, however if you insist I can “Do the snotty nosed third grader sit in a corner thing”
I always had control after the speech ...

The principle knows that she is affirmative action, therefore, he knows that is not a thing he can do about, just promote her and move her somewhere else.

Just an example of someone else hung up on form and ignoring substance--you, that is, not the kid. You get the Honorary Liberal of the Day Award.

I said it on another thread and I’ll say it again:

Many blacks (the vast majority, if you read the polls) are pro-Obama. This is in spite of what he stands for and the policies his administration is implementing.

So the question is: Why?

The answer is racism. Obama is their skin color and that is why they support him. He looks like them.

Because of this, many blacks take criticism of Obama to be criticsim of black people, that is, themselves. This is dangerous because many, many people do not like Obama—not because he is black—after all, the majority of American whites voted for him in the first place—and if they’re considered rascist because of it, what will be the outcome of expressing themselves? Will this lead to more tension between the races? Why yes, it will.

I’m not saying this to be racist, but frankly, we need to acknowledge the emotionalism tied up in black people’s worship of Obama.

From a different story...

”Salisbury Police Explorer Carlos Ellis worn his uniform under his gown during graduation from North Rowan on Friday. Ellis attended 4 graduations at Catawba College: Three he worked, one he participated in. His parents, Tanya Dixon-Neely and Mark Neely flank him after the ceremony. . ”
...but only one where I could find a pic of the media's 'not-to-be shown' edumacator

I take it it's been a while since you were that age, you gorgeous thing. Considering he's in what are called the awkward years, he's a fine figure of a boy. Combined with his intellect, courage, and fine upbringing, I'm betting he'll have to shoo the hoards off in a few years. : - )

I totally agree. He’s a very good-looking kid. Love the hair. When he gets skinny, I hope he doesn’t cut it. I just meant that if I saw him on the street, I’d expect him to be wearing an Obama t-shirt.
