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:

from the mailing (sent and read, reply received) would one think the named person is a teacher? Seems so. So wonder why we are unable to find anymore info to confirm without going to the district to look at the employee listing? Dang ... these questions pile up and up and up.

It must be a black thing defending the pretender in the white house....white guilt helped get him elected in 2008 and in 2012 black guilt is supporting him because he is a disaster.

On another note this speaks to the North Carolina school system where busing still takes place today to integrate the schools. So these kids could be from well to do areas and have to be bused to poor areas for balance.

Maybe some FReepers in NC could further elaborate. That sh*t wouldn’t happen in the school district where my kids attend. We didn’t even allow Obama’s address to the school kids be aired to our children.

Given my choice of screen names, I guess I'm going to a FEMA gulag.

Before I go, I'd like to say this to our Dictator in Chief:

SHOVE IT.

Good for you! We really shouldn't let them get away with any crap. They should be fired or school taxes (property taxes) will be held until the parents get their way.

It could be done if people stand together. Two or three parents can make noise but won't go anywhere.

Yikes! You’re right! It’s kinda like the Hooded Justice from the Watchmen! (This joke may go flat if you’ve never seen the movie or read the book. If that’s the case, my bad.)

Is it me or has the country lost its mind ? We’re on the edge of complete and total disaster. The Doomsday Clock is at 11:58:59.

What's ridiculous? The teacher and her claim that you could be arrested for talking badly about Obama?

She really means that you should be arrested for talking badly about Obama -- and she is not alone.

Yes and no. The way I optimistically take it is that the coveted take over by the Communist thugs IS the beginning of their end. Of course, if we are serious and willing to end what they started.

“Of course, if we are serious and willing to end what they started.”

I don’t think we’re going to have a choice soon. Today’s mini-riot in Chicago was just a warm-up. Just wait until the Republican Convention.

I’m just a grumpus, however. Don’t mind me. I don’t see glasses as half-full or half-empty. When I see the glass in such a state, I wonder who took my water, and more importantly, I wonder if they back-washed.

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

I used to post the exact same line. Someone got extremely POd about it once. I guess they didn't want to think about it.

Holy crap. That the teacher is definitely a black woman Obama zealot teacher, it's impossible to miss.

Audio recording here:
Teacher yells at student because of a question he asked about Obama!

She argues that it is not acceptable to go after Obama like Dems go against Romney because Obama is POTUS and they all have been treated with respect. One student replies :"What about the way Democrats treated Bush?" and the teacher goes ballistic,

I don't need to know her name. Just her race.
Not all blacks would make such an ignorant absurd statement.
But all who do I am convinced are...

In any case, too uninformed, consciously ignorant, and unfit to teach even children.

Remarkable!

What makes you think the MSM is not aware of this? If DRUDGE has it you can bet every single newspaper and other news outlets in America are aware of it.

As to whether they report on it, well that’s a different story entirely and it in this area where Limbaugh can be most effective by forcing them to knowledge event

Yeah, I get the same thing, usually from a "serious conservative" that is sure it is OK (for the public schools) to be a little bit Communist, or moderately Marxist, it don't hurt a thing ya know, free speech and all.

And most of 'em are public school teachers who are "trying to do a good job" and they just have to teach what they're ordered to, there are so many good public schools, ya know.
