Posted on 10/06/2012 7:54:45 PM PDT by TigerClaws

Angered by a teenager's claims of being humiliated by a teacher over a Romney/Ryan T-shirt, students at Charles Carroll High School ignored warnings from administrators and shouted obscenities out school windows at the girl's parents Friday morning.

Sue them.

Apparently anti-bullying policies don’t apply to Republican students.

Sadly I suspect the problem is a lot bigger than Philly and Cali...

IMO you just can’t get an Obama elected without a significant percentage of the population hovering around a “socialism might be okay if I can get some benefit from it” type mentality. People don’t want to admit it, but it was always clear who and what he is. The problem is too many people were just not willing to admit the truth and were determined to vote for him no matter what.

Some of the mushy middle can be swayed back and forth depending on the situation of the moment. I’d say a good 35% are just sold on the stupidity of “left is good, right is evil” BS.

Once this election is over, conservatives are going to have to start looking at ways of turning that tide or we will have generations of morons to turn back with each and every election.

Funny, but sad story.

I’m from the Philadelphia suburbs, and last week I had to see an orthopedic to get fitted with a walking boot. While in the lobby, NBC news was talking about Romney and the 47 percent comment.

My goodness the amount of ignorance that was displayed in that room was astounding. My mom had driven me or else I would have confronted the ignorance. One woman claimed that if “Romney won, the tea party crazies would rise up in the streets and form vigilante groups.” Another complained that “Romney doesn’t think they contribute to society.” They all reinforced their ridiculous ideas, like Romney would make them pay 6,000 for medical coverage, and Romney had 47 percent of America. I was astounded.

Needless to say, while sitting near the reception desk, not one of them had a co-pay of more than dollar. I’ve never met anyone with a co-pay that low, so I was kind of perplexed. I thought Obamacare didn’t take effect until next year? haha

It's OK, I have to hear this abuse because of the city those of us in Pennsylvania like to refer to as "West Camden" all the time.

We need to give Filthydelphia to New Jersey -- hell Delaware, even -- and you folks North and East of the Tejon Pass need to secede.

It’s a very small “progressive” charter high school, and the demographics are close to a third each white, black, hispanic.

The teacher further inflamed the situation by telling the other students on the next day that she was in trouble because a student (not naming names, but everyone knew) had told on her for making a joke.)

Civil suit against the school and city - pain and suffering, defamation, intimidation, violation of civil rights - the list goes on and on.....

That teacher needs to be fired. The principal needs to make an example of this teacher before the situtation gets worse. Can you imagine what it will be like if/when Romney wins in November?

“It’s scary how much power they do have”—Natalie Maines
(Speaking about Freepers)

I think it is time this school and especially this teacher find out what Natalie meant.

I’m sure her parents can put a lot of pressure on the school if they choose to do so. This is unacceptable behavior from a teacher and should not be tolerated. If that teacher gets away with this, she will only be emboldened in the future.

How can a school hope to have any discipline if their teachers are out of control? They cannot.

I think someone needs to put pressure on the school. Parents or Freepers if we can make a difference. Even if its just phone calls and emails.

[[Her parents should retain an attorney and SUE the School district, all the students involved, and the culprit teacher for VIOLATING her civil right of free speech by intimidation and threats.]]

It’s funny- there’s a HUGE push on by the left to ‘ban school bullying’ but apparently there’s no such ban when the person or child being bullied is a supporter of republicans?

How is it possible that the left is so blatantly hypocritical, yet still remain popular amoung folks who keep voting in these lying hypocritical nmasty creatons?

My sister teaches 7th & 8th grade math at an all-black magnet school in Baltimore. She says a surprising number of kids are supportive of Romney and are asking other students “How could you vote for Obama again?” Many of the kids only see race, but she’s able to have substantive (but simple) discussions with them about the economic destruction he’s caused. It’s the first time many of them have had the scales lifted from their eyes.

The demographics of the school has it being just 36% white with 90% qualifying for free or reduced price lunches.

The student is white, the teacher is black. A white girl got a black teacher in trouble. The student needs to move to the suburbs if at all possible, or she will likely be beaten, raped or killed.
