Skip to comments.N.C. TEACHER TELLS STUDENT HE COULD BE ARRESTED FOR TALKING BADLY ABOUT OBAMA
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 Campbells 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 teachers fact of the day that said Romney was a bully back in high school. A student asked:

Have any of them even READ the 1st amendment???
This is the kind of speech SPECIFICALLY protected!
I’ll break with the crowd and stand up for the teacher. The students were obviously under the misapprehension that there is freedom of speech in Obama’s Amerika. The teacher is properly warning them that Holder’s people may come after them if they speak ill of Dear Leader.
Me too. I went to three public schools in NC. Two of them have been torn down.
My complaint about some posts on this thread is the unreasonable slamming of all public schools when there are sincere teachers and administrators seeking to see that core standards are met so that students will be in a position to continue their education at the college level, if they want to and can.
What I’m hearing said about all public schools on this thread are possibly accurate for many if not most public colleges and universities, IMO.
PSA....”Please don’t feed your children to the public school system.”
So, why did I bring it up on this particular thread and in a post to you? Seemed like a good idea at the time.
Anyone who believes there is any other purpose for public schools is a Useful Idiot.
Urban Dictionary: Useful Idiot:
Unthinking proponents of socialism and/or communism. You can usually find them swarming the Internet...
In 1952 Doris Lessing, a British writer who has since won the Nobel Prize for Literature, was part of a delegation visiting the Soviet Union.
Her memories of the trip are clear and unforgiving:
I was taken around and shown things as a 'useful idiot'... that's what my role was. I can't understand why I was so gullible.
If you have never heard the term useful idiot it was the attitude held by Vladimir Lenin towards communist sympathizers in the West (America). While Lenin and the Soviets held them in utter contempt they also viewed them as tools for dispensing communist propaganda to other countries, thus infecting foreign cultures with their totalitarian tripe. After their mission was complete, they were no longer useful.
I had a Nun that was the same way. Praised Carter up and down. I was 14 and I had a Ford bumper sticker hidden in one of my books and would flash it when her back was turned.
According to Breitbart.com, the teacher is Tanya Dixon-Neely.
It seemed abusive to me. Are you a publik skool teacher?
many links on the web say you are correct ... http://www.google.com/#hl=en&output=search&sclient=psy-ab&q=Tanya+Dixon-Neely%2C+salisbury%2C+rowan+county%2C+N.C.+teacher&oq=Tanya+Dixon-Neely%2C+salisbury%2C+rowan+county%2C+N.C.+teacher&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&gs_l=hp.3...5849.28882.0.293184.108.40.206.0.0.1.383.7766.0j31j10j1.42.0...0.0.FCZ7gN8-1vg&pbx=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.r_qf.,cf.osb&fp=45e2c0b8d52a4e80&biw=1024&bih=662
Tanya Dixon-Neely, eh?
Maybe she needs a new career, her house picketed, her family harrassed, her name plastered all over the place. Her employer inundated with mail, phone calls, emails, until she is fired and driven from the school. A full court press.
Oh, yeah......that sort of ‘’treatment’’ is reserved for conservatives, isn’t it.
“This unprofessional woman sounds like a complete illiterate.Whoever hired her in the first place should be fired.She sounds more like a student in a GED class than a teacher. It is incredible the level of ignorance of teachers in some schools.”
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.
Not to mention the Principal. My tax dollars at work?
Well, Navy Patriot, I thought that’s what you meant by “comrade”. Just wanted to be sure and now I am.
Your assessment of what I’ve written is poor if you have understood by reading any of my posts that I am a Marxist or Leninist, an unthinking proponent of socialism and/or communism. You really should be careful before you accuse any FReeper of that.
Odd, but you aren’t the first poster to refer to me as a “useful idiot” this afternoon.
My younger daughter went through a GED class for some of the same reasons as you did; she did great, and got almost all A’s! She also had a form of homeschooling (most of it online), and she also did great in college testing, ACT and SAT!
HEIL HITLER !! The brownshirts are coming for you!
Here’s something else I just ran across over at Weasel Zippers:
