Apparently, in the City of Brotherly Love, geometry teachers easily confuse this
Racism has again raised its ugly head in this presidential election and it has filtered all the way down to the classroom level where, in Philadelphia, a high school student was threatened with assault by her geometry teacher last Friday for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, last Friday was dress-down day for students at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond. One female student decided that she would show her support for Republican presidential candidate a Mitt Romney by wearing a Romney t-shirt.
Thats when things turned ugly for her in the Democratic school.
The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet. The teacher allegedly threatened to use a marker to cross out Romneys name and that of Rep. Paul Ryan, his running mate. The teacher also allegedly tried to throw the student out of class.
The teacher also allegedly said that Carroll was a Democratic school.[Emphasis added.]
The Inquirer reports that an investigation is going on.
Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard confirmed that last Friday at Carroll, a teacher made some comments to a student wearing a Romney t-shirt in their classroom. The comments were of a political nature, and also of a personal nature. We are looking into the comments, and the conduct of the teacher.
It appears (based on a review of the schools website) that the offending teacher is likely to be a male. However, given that Philadelphia teachers are represented by the American Federation of Teachers, it is doubtful that anything more than a hand-slap will be issued to the teacher.
This teacher will be protected, and the student expelled.
Honestly, that is what will happen. If I was the Dad, I would be suing right now. The name of the teacher will not be released, but you can own a chunk of the school district.
Most likely a smash mouth gay guy being overly fabulous.
Get your history straight. Democrat — yes. Southern? Only because of revisionist history. “ By 1926 the Klan was “crippled and discredited.” D. C. Stephenson was the Grand Dragon of Indiana and 22 northern states. In 1923 he had led the states under his control to separate from the national KKK organization.”
At least the post-War Between the States Klan came into existence for understandable reasons — to stop the rape of white women, non-prosecution of crimes by blacks against whites, and wholesale suppression of human rights. Southerners had become worse off than slaves, which forever obliterated the nonsense that the war was a noble crusade to free black people. The klan as a racist organization came later and was as warmly embraced by whites in the north and those in the south.
Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard is obviously a former English teecher (sic) (a teacher made some comments to a student wearing a Romney t-shirt in their classroom.”) Was the teecher (sic) the renowned mathematician Mohamed Ould-Babaali?
It *was* on last night’s news.... BULLYING comes to mind.
Back in the 1950s, the joke going around was that there were more communists teaching at Princeton University than there were teaching in Moscow. Some things never change!
This Colorado mom could do so as well. Fortunately DH and I have raised daughter well, and she is quite capable of administering her own butt kicking - with pointe shoes on of course!
She’s one of Obama’s brownshirts. Enforcing allegiance to the Dear Reader by lying.
Socialists like leopards don’t change their spots. `George Orwell’ wrote that in the `30s while fighting in Spain the socialists came to apply the word `fascist’ to anything they found disagreeable, e.g. “That fascist waiter watered our drinks.”
So she doesn’t really believe that the t-shirt was rascist. This teacher just found it disagreeable, so she did violence to an important word, particularly if she is (as I suspect) one of Holder’s people. And Obama said last night that we need more of these creatures.
and my youngest Daughter could make Ranger Sgt. Cordel Walker, aka Chuck Norris approve of the kicking delivered.
“The other day the Secretary of Defense reported to the President that a Brazilian had been killed in Afghanistan. Saddened and bewildered, the President asked him “How many is a brazillion?”
...so much for the male teacher story
Aren’t well raised young ladies a delight? There is hope for the next generation
I don't understand why this has become so complicated.
Just ask the abused student!
All names will be needed to pursue the coming suit. I hope that family has the good sense to insist on a trial for damages.
Millions of us have their back with legal expenses.
The Klan was founded in the 1870’s in Tennessee by southern Democrats to fight against blacks and the Repiblicans.
The 1920’s version was a reincarnation as well as the post-WW2 version.
