Taking their cues from the NAZI's and other despotic rulers.

I think the best solution would be for the teacher in question to choose between dismissal and having to wear the same pink Romney/Ryan t-shirt for an entire day in school.

Fitting punishment. We should not be surprised by this type of action by “public” school teachers.

“Taking their cues from the NAZI’s and other despotic rulers.”

Philly is where the New Black Pampers committed one of their crimes at the polls in ‘08.

The Negro Nazi party must be defeated at the pools this November.

If any Pampers try to intimidate voters again, they should be made an example of.

Come on, it was just a joke.

Hey, remember that hilarious prank when those armed guys in paramilitary uniforms were threatening people at the polls in Philadelphia?

They're just a bunch of cut-ups in Philly, is all.

If I was her dad...well, it's probabaly not wise to discuss what I might do.

As it is I've got a lot of arrangements to make in the next 30 days. No matter who wins I expect shenanigans, but if R&R wins Eric Holder's People will make life interesting for those of us who must live in small states with big urban cores. If his folks get this unhinged over a tee shirt, I can easily imagine what will happen if their messiah loses.

Remember freedom of speech? It was nice. Long gone now. Gradually got lost. Nice memories, tho, a and great fairy-tail to tell our grandkids.

Whenever a leftist claims that they are the “better” ideology,

I always ask “which car would be safer, one with an Obama sticker at a Tea Party rally, or one with a Tea Party sticker at an Obama rally”.

3/4 of the time they’ll lie to me, though, but they get the point, and know they are lying.

I remember them.

My small and formerly quite conservative municipality has recently moved my polling place from a centrally located school to a "community center" in the middle of Eric Holder's side of town. This was the scene of some "civil rights action" in the sixties and seventies that involved ambulances, fire trucks and (belatedly and unwillingly) police. It is not too hard to imagine some latter-day "civil rights action" taking place Nov. 6th.

I am prepared.

Lynette Gaymon = African-American

“..groups of students had discussed attacking her.”

Need one speculate?

Philly blast to the past, when Asian students were brutally assaulted:

“.. As they turned to leave, a (black) mob pummeled them with fists and kicks. The security guard had disappeared..”

What did her parents expect? The school lists itself as a progressive urban school and a course in African American “history” is required for graduation but no course in American history is required. I would tell her parents to quit being stupid and find a proper school.

Somehow I doubt that this "history" class will talk about guys like George Washington Carver and Booker T. Washington.

This is why there are no signs or stickers around. If you put one on your car, it will get destroyed. If you had one on your lawn your house will probably be burned down.

This is not new. I had to deal with bullying and harassment from ateacher and some classmates in 1992, just for saying I thought abortion was wrong, as it was dismemberment of a baby. The level of rage I encountered shocked me.

A bit like Obama, who won the Peace Prize, having a “kill list”. WTF?

Lynette Gaymon, her geometry teacher,

Make her take a month of anti-bullying seminars and write an essay on how not to bully one of your students.

Found no reference to a teacher’s name, and here is their website staff listing.

It appears the Math teachers are men. Wonder if she is a substitute?

And only 2 members of the published staff are addressed as MS.

Lynette Gaymon is the name of the teacher per this article and other sources. Google will provide you the other info that you asked for as we can apparently no longer post contact information on FR.

I did not know about the contact info change. Could understand that.

But the teacher needed to be “identified” and connected with her actions.

Thanks

“Gaymon”

Is that a for real last name?

I wondered about that, too. According to Google, she’s the only woman named “Gaymon” in Pennsylvania.
