Should school board president lose her job over Hitler Facebook post? (Vote!)

Social media has been a crucial platform for people to voice their opinions on the gun control debate, but did Ohio's state board of education president take her personal views too far?

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Debe Terhar posted a photo of Adolf Hitler with an anti-gun control message on her personal Facebook page last weekend. While Terhar told the paper she regrets the post and was not comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler, Ohio Democrats are now calling for her resignation.

FaceBook, the great community uniter. Sad that good people get chewed up with all the rest of the grist but that is what the social media mill is intended to do..

While Terhar told the paper she regrets the post and was not comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler . . .

Why? Because Hitler provided his adoring sheep with a better class of music?

This is Laughable, it was the DEMONCRAT PARTY that Directly Supported Adolf Hitler and Every One of his policies right up until he decided to Attack Mother Russia. See Joe Kennedy, Henry Ford, Rockefeller, and almost EVERY BANKER IN THE US at the time.

A member of the SCHOOL board should be prosecuted for TEACHING others of the dangers of dictators of the past??

So the school board president posted a comment that was critical of Hitler’s action. Does this mean the rest of the school board supports Hitler’s action?

Should she lose her job? NO. Will she lose her job? Probably.

People lose their jobs all the time over what they post on Facebook

Conservative thinking people must be courageous in standing up to the atrocities of progressivism..but there will always be consequences for standing up for what is right.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As a public employee - she posted negatively about Dear Leader.

And here she is... the head of the local Reindoctrination Kamp.

For shame.

Her post is historically accurate.

That’s instructional.

She’s in charge of schools.

Excellent.

Can we promote her?

So much for free political speech in this country.

It was okay to call for the assassination of President Bush and illustrate him as Hitler. But if you dare to suggest Obama is doing what Hitler did, or make any similar comparison - you will potentially lose your job.

I bet if the teacher posted links to gay porn - the teacher would be declared a hero and a living example of freedom.

“What did she do wrong?”

She dared to express an opinion in the “land of the free”. Only god-state chanted “mantras” are approved.

Liberals are so GREAT with their “Diversity of Thought”....

But only if it is THEIR thought!

If you are a thought Deviant, you are to be sent to a virtual “gulag”.

She should have had a pic of Che Dork-vera, or the Obamadork, or the Hillabeast - accompanied by an anti-American screed.

That’d made her a heroine.

It’s time to start handing these dork/cretin/felon/liberals their feces back to them.

Times ten.

It’s war, folks...now or never.

From what I see she didn’t make any connection to Obama, she didn’t even mention Obama. The Ohio Democrates are the ones who are saying she is comparing Hitler to Obama.

Shouldn’t Obama regret being like Hitler than someone else calling him on it?

I support her rights as a citizen to say what she wants on her own time, using her own resources in a public forum outside of the classroom and off the school property.

If her employer was in any way a private school, my opinion of HER rights do not change. However my opinion of her employer’s rights - their right to protect THEIR private views on how they want their students taught, might include their right to tell their students that the view the teacher expressed publicly is not a view they teach, not a view to be taught in THEIR school - if that were the case, and if that was their wish.

However, if her employer is a public school, which I believe it is, they are not representatives of any private view on the issue, they work for all the citizens represented by the parents of their students, and cannot pick and choose which of the parents they will support on such an issue and which they will not. The government cannot discriminate on this issue - you can; a private entity can.

We have a BIG BIG problem with our out of control arrogant PUBLIC education industrial establishment, who now thinks their writ, their mandate over the lives of students and teachers extends to the private lives of students and teachers. It doesn’t.

If a student “bullies” another student in their behavior on school time, on school grounds or while off school grounds but under the control of the school administration, the school can rightly discipline a student for it. What is done in the private lives of the students is up to parents and other public authorities to deal with, as necessary and if needed - it is none of schools f&^%$$ng business. Students are NOT wards of the public school or “citizens” of the public school. The public school is not in charge of their lives; it is employed ONLY for purposes of academic education.

A public school’s mandate over behavior of students and teachers extends to school time, school property and school activities run by the school off of school property and no further.

Getting a FB account was the first infraction.
Being stupid enough to post on it was another.

As I see it she angered the Dimocrats by using Hitler as an example. Silly rabbit! Only Dimocrats are allowed to compare anything or anyone to Hitler.

It’s not fair to compare Obama to Hitler.

Hitler didn’t lie about his intentions.

She did not say anything about Obama. Seems to me it is the folks complaining who thought the shoe fit. Kind of like the Muslim complaining about the long line of public crosses lining the streets of his American town. Everyone else just thought they were telephone poles.
