Top Democratic officials are steering clear of the controversy surrounding Deandre Poole, vice chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.
Poole is the Florida Atlantic University instructor responsible for the Jesus stomping classroom assignment. The communications teacher has been placed on paid leave in wake of the uproar that followed a March 4 class on the Davie campus.
Poole assigned students to write Jesus on a sheet of paper, throw it on the floor and then step on it as part of a lesson on the impact of words. It attracted national attention, especially in conservative media outlets.
U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Weston, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said she was familiar with the incident at FAUs Davie campus. But, she said, I had no idea he was the vice chairman of the Palm Beach County Democratic Party.

Write the name of Brother Deandre Poole on a piece of paper, throw the paper on the floor and stomp on it.
All together now . . . one . . . two . . . three . . .

“...but top Democrats steer clear of *sshole.”
I would have never guessed he was a Democrat.

The history of having folks stomp on something with Jesus writte on it was popular in Tokugawa Japan ~ they'd approach someone they thought had become a Christian and challenge them to step on the medallion with Jesus' name. If they refused they take them out and crucify them.
The professor undoubtedly understood this ~ so he'd know it was a DEATH THREAT punishable under Florida statutes 836-10 as a second degree felony.

The Democrat Party has been taken over by a gaggle of baby-killers and sodomites. They are also anti-Christian bigots. Where it is politically safe to do so—Bloomberg’s NYC—they display their bigotry openly. Where there are significant numbers of believing Christians,as in Florida, they are more circumspect.

If the parties were reversed, the media would tar each and every republican with this deed.
