Posted on 11/14/2012 8:24:23 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
Two public school teachers are facing investigations for posting messages that some perceived as critical of President Obama on social networking sites.
In Rock Hill, SC, a middle school teacher was placed on leave after she posted a message on her personal Facebook page about President Obama and food stamps.
Congrats Obama, she allegedly wrote. As one of my students sang down the hallway, We get to keep our food stamps which I pay for because they cant budget their money and really, neither can you.
A school spokesperson said they had received several calls complaining about the eighth grade math teacher at Rawlinson Road Middle School. The teacher has apologized.
A school official told Fox News that the complaints originated from pro-Obama supporters outside the school.
People outside the school system that saw her posting and some of them said they were offended by it, spokesperson Elaine Baker said. She used poor judgment according to our social media policy. Teachers are kept to higher standards.
Baker said teachers and school employees should watch what they post on Facebook to be careful.

The Rise of the Third Reich.
Heaven forbid that a teacher have an opposing opinion. Guess teachers will just have to post anonymously.
They will be in prison right next to all the teachers who incorporated anti-Bush material into their curriculum! May they rot in jail!!!! lol
They need to get their mind right.
What a laugh. The Teacher's Union is all over this. It would be really nice if teacher's were held to higher teaching standards.
And...linked at the bottom of that news piece, I found this...
Funny, a Philly Poll had a mural of Bambi and that was OK.
They will surely be fired while the teachers in Maine who teach middle school kids about homosexual sex and Saran wrap keep theirs. Heck, they’ll probably be promoted.
When did bad mouthing an American hating President, on a social networking site, become the purview of the employer?
Thought Crime not to support Dear Leader. But urging 11 year olds to have sex is “sex-ed”.
Publik skoolz need to be abolished.
My mom is a teacher; I’ve read comments from her colleagues on Facebook. They are endlessly political. Moreover, I’ve read mail from the union. They literally come out and explicitly tell her how to vote.
“teachers are held to higher standards”..???
Like bussing kids to Obama rallies... singing songs about how wonderful Obama is and stuff like that??
However, had these teachers boasted about their latest sexual escapades with underage students after school, nobody would say anything probably.
The truth hurts
I’m curious, unless those who reported her were her friends, how did they see what she posted on her Facebook?
And, IMO, it’s her right to post what she wants, as long as she’s not hurting anyone or inciting violence, etc. Posting ones opinions would fall under, oh, I don’t know, THE FIRST AMENDMENT!!!
F those stupid parents. I know if my sons teacher posted anti-Romney stuff, I wouldn’t care. I would just be more mindful of what was being taught in the classroom (or have him moved to a diff teacher if I knew opinions were being indoctrinated into the lesson plans). Stupid people and their “offended” PC bullcrap. Get over it!!!
And good on these teachers for speaking out against “The One”. F him too!!!
Never post your stuff on Facebook if you friend students and or parents. It is a recipe for disaster.
The Left of America would be first in line to support the Salem Witch Movement as long as the “witches” were Republicans.
ESAD, you #ing Nazis.
Did their friends' friends turn them in? Rather a stretch to have people from outside the school complaining about Facebook posts. Were they searching for anti-O opinions?
In 2008, the popular movie that seemed to be a documentary of the presidential race was “The Manchurian Candidate” (or was it “Idiocracy”?)
Now, in 2012, the movie/documentary is “Red Dawn”.
(I pray I’m wrong, but I fear I am not!)
They’ll soon be sent to the office of mental hygiene to be re-educated in the ways of collectivist thinking!
It is time to comb the Internet social networks for government toadies ( oops! ‘”teachers”) who posted anti-Romney opinions.
So they were offended. I am offended that idiots re-elected that asswad Obama. The main thing, was her statement factual? Was it on her on page and not done with a school computer? Then BS. If the school takes action sue the rotten basturds..........
Barack Hussein Obama, mmm, mmm, mmm.
We get to keep our food stamps, mmm, mmm, mmm.
Equal pay for equal work, mmm, mmm, mmm.
Unisex bathrooms for every gender, mmm, mmm, mmm.
Where is neighbor’s Obama poster?
This kind of crap has been going on ever since the obama administration happened, 4 years ago. Same thing they do in other dictate countries. The camel’s nose under the tent.
Well. It seems that we’ve arrived at tyranny. I’m a teacher at a school in Alaska, and I have to tell you that a cold chill went down my spine, which is, of course, the reason that these two teachers have been targeted. I wonder what will happen when someone figures out my real name behind this pseudonym?
I’m also on Facebook, and a fairly large number of teachers are my friends. The political barrage was intense this election cycle, and was especially vicious from the left. I taught history for a while, and it doesn’t take much reading to see that leftists reflexively stifle speech wherever they gain control. Depending on the culture, stifling speech can evolve into outright genocide, but maybe that won’t happen here, and we’ll just have genteel authoritarianism.
As many people here have posted, all those ugly, bigoted, and violent statements against Romney, Republicans, whites, Christians, and conservatives will not cause a ripple in the world of education.
We’re in for quite a ride, my friends. God help us.
we have elected Obama as our “Golden Calf”. The heathens will worship until there is judgement.
Time to review the ‘social media’ messages and websites of every teacher in that district. Make sure every one of them is held to the same standard.
Teachers held to higher standards than their damned unions.
I can’t for the life of me can understand why any capable and/or conservative person would become a public school teacher. There is no reward whatsoever.
Makes you wonder if the schools have figured out a way to weed out conservative thinking teachers from their ranks. The schools sure do teach a liberal agenda, makes you wonder how exactly do they manage to do that?
You must not speak out against our great leader, comrades.
Yep. The Unions are just doing a little house cleaning.
Look through old posts for ant-Bush posts... They can’t be hard to find.
All the unions seem send out those voting instructions. Abominable. My ex was/is a union carpenter, the poltics was all over those quarterly newsletters. Sheep.
Doesn’t the U.S. Constitution say something about “Freedom of Speach”? Seems to me I recall something about that....(sarc)
Loose lips sink ships.
Instead I suggest organizing with your local governor about seceding from the Union.
People outside the school system that saw her posting and some of them said they were offended by it, spokesperson Elaine Baker said. She used poor judgment according to our social media policy. Teachers are kept to higher standards. .............
The truth hurts but they don’t like it. Too Damn bad!
More racisism crys coming.
Yep, posting such is definitely a firing offense...
Just another day in the Obamanation.
Im a teacher at a school in Alaska, and I have to tell you that a cold chill went down my spine,...Maybe you need a heavier parka? Just kidding.
Yea, take a few minutes to digest that.
Ditto. Just wish she hadn’t apologized.
Public school teachers doing the right thing and not recieving the support of the community.
