N.C. TEACHER TELLS STUDENT HE COULD BE ARRESTED FOR TALKING BADLY ABOUT OBAMA
The Blaze ^ | May 20,2012 | Mike Opelka

Posted on 05/20/2012 1:46:35 PM PDT by Hojczyk

Last Monday, a high school student in North Carolina engaged his social studies teacher in a heated debate about politics and the two leading presidential candidates. During the exchange, the teacher (an obvious Obama supporter) got very angry with the student and accused him of disrespecting the president. She even went so far as to tell the boy that he could be jailed for speaking ill of Obama.

Sarah Campbell of the Salisbury Post first reported on the story. She claims that the school district is not releasing the name of the teacher and that she is not responding to requests for public comment (although the two students identified her to the newspaper). According to Campbell’s story, the teacher will not be suspended or even face disciplinary action for what was heard on the recording. A statement from the school was released at the end of the week:

“The Rowan-Salisbury School System expects all students and employees to be respectful in the school environment and for all teachers to maintain their professionalism in the classroom. This incident should serve as an education for all teachers to stop and reflect on their interaction with students. Due to personnel and student confidentiality, we cannot discuss the matter publicly.” So, how bad was the exchange? It got fairly heated, with the teacher shouting at times. The kerfuffle started after one student asked a question about the teacher’s “fact of the day” that said Romney was a bully back in high school. A student asked:

To be fair, she didn’t really hate the school, any of her teachers or the students. She just was really independent, and liked studying on her own way, and she got bad migraines at times! That caused her to sleep overtime and be late. Luckily, she had a sympathetic school counselor who also had them. She suggested other options for her, including partially home study and tutoring.

Okay. Here’s my apology for not believing you thought my comment was abusive to you. Obviously I thought incorrectly. I apologize for not believing you really thought that I was seeking to be abusive to you today on FR, instead of the other way around.

Communism threat Ping..............

This isn’t a joke. This is what’s coming soon to your neighborhood!

Our children are threatened in schools. If they disrespect 0b0z0, (I just disrespected his ass!) you’ll be arrested!!

Anyone thinks of soft Socialism can simply look at what it really is; harsh Communism.

It starts exactly like this and then the “Nah, ain’t gonna happen here” crowd takes over, makes fun of “scared rabbits,” and MSM/SNL/etc. laugh it of.

The next thing, oops...your neighbor is arrested for making fun and saying dirty jokes about 0h0m0 (darn! I said the truth this time!)

This is how Communism takes over the grassroots through FEAR, pure and simple.

You really should be careful before you accuse any FReeper of that.

You're doing it wrong, Navy Patriot. You need to couch your accusations against FReepers in sweeping generalizations like "Is it just me or have you noticed a lot of drinking and posting this afternoon on Free Republic" giving yourself plausible deniability later when called on it. Have you learned nothing from the Clintons and 0bamas?

It's the intuhlekshool way to do it. ;^)

Odd, but you aren’t the first poster to refer to me as a “useful idiot” this afternoon.

Why do you consider that odd?

I don't consider you a Marxist, I am trying to get you to think, and a connection to Marxism should have got you thinking: why would he speak like Lenin was giving me a pat on the head?

So you're getting called a useful idiot by others, again think: why would they do that?

You're no Marxist, but you've made the assumption that public schools are for education of youth.

Marx thanks you.

You mention higher education as well, and other than Hillsdale College and a few Christian institutions most all of 'em would be Marx approved and are government subsidized to the point of disaster for students with useless degrees unless they get work as a government regulator.

Communism is already here throughout our "public" education system, and you haven't noticed.

"Affirmative Action. It was established to elevate the unqualified and inexperiened to positions of authority way beyond their abilities. That’s how we got stuck with Obama as president."

At worst, this idiotic woman can only screw up the future of a few thousand kids as a teacher. As President Obama can and has managed to screw up the futures of hundreds of millions of people, if not billions of people, for generations.

I really try to get people to think, so I do some things, sometimes, that are intended to spark curiosity.

Like: Post without sarcasm tags, or

be curt, or

be un PC offensive, or

be intriguing.

I have a standard post , being: Public school is child abuse.

I want the reader to either know why, or figure it out without it being explained to him like he was a school kid, that way the knowledge is really set in and fully understood.

And I am extremely irritating.

That’s okay, I’ve got a couple of friends who come across like you do. They are both staunch Democrats.

It’s just that lots of people have apparently been intoxicated on FR this afternoon and your rush to judgement (calling me “comrade”) made me wonder about your ability to discern what I was posting about not all schools fitting into your characterizations of how all public schools are being run. Perhaps you too would benefit from a closer look at how some schools are locally-run and not by the Politburo. Perhaps each of us is in need of Higher Education.

The "teacher" mentioned that many were arrested for giving Bush a hard time.

I was working at a temp agency (repairing some of their computers) the day after the Bush v Kerry election. This one woman who worked at the temp agency was in tears, insisting that Bush was going to reinstate slavery! And she knew this because her husband, who was a union shop foreman told her so.

OK, point number 10 from the Communist Manifesto: "Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labour in its present form and combination of education with industrial production."

The Constitutional empowerment of the Federal Government to provide free education in public school is found in Article..... Oops.

Does this help?

Is there a possibility that the Federal Government belongs in ANY public school good or bad, or that good locals can tell the Fed what will be taught?

We have union teachers in Florida too - half our kids can’t read. The ‘teachers’ horrible comment at the end about President Bush ... Taxpayers are paying this idiot to teach our children...

***************************************************************************************

“Didn’t Obama bully somebody, though?”

The teacher started to get angry and said:

“Not to my knowledge.”

A couple of students relayed the story about Obama admitting that he bullied someone when he was younger. And that seemed to light the fuse on his teacher’s anger. A couple of the students exchanged words with the angry teacher.

“Stop! Stop! Because there’s no comparison. He’s running for president. Obama is the president.”

As one student attempted to argue for a fair, two-sided debate on the history of the candidates, he was shouted down and talked over by the teacher. She continued:

“You got to realize, this man is wanting to be what Obama is. There’s no comparison.”

Once again, the students pressed for equal discussion of the histories of both men, with one saying:

“If you’re gonna talk trash about one side, you gotta talk trash about the other.”

The teacher just seemed to dig her heels in deeper and press her defense of Obama telling the defiant teen:

“You will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom.”

Again the student persisted and invoked his First Amendment right.

“I’ll say what I want.”

The still unidentified teacher read the student her rules…her Obama rules.

“Not about him, you won’t!”

The back and forth continued and the most strident of the two students reminded his teacher that President Bush was constantly treated to negative statements about him while he was in office:

“Whenever Bush was president, everybody talked sh-t about him.”

To which the teacher responded:

“Because he was sh-tty.”

Went with that and did a search. Came back with numerous hits on the name. Have been looking for a connection to the high school and have found none, or found just what you found ... nothing saying this person is a teacher (confirmed). Not sure what to make of it. Did find a 2003 council meeting minutes of a library, if remember correctly set up and appreciation to named person and others, but as for finding confirmation the named person is a teacher ... not finding anything. Still looking.

At the very least, Obama is a Socialist. More likely he’s a dyed in the wool Marxist. This is blatantly obvious from his own words and the life long associations he has himself chosen. To argue otherwise is absolute self delusion at best and outright treason to the principals on which this country was founded at worst.
