Posted: November 7, 2008 in Just "Why?", Should Be Slapped

This video has been bouncing around the net over the last few days.

Welcome to the Brave New World.

P.S. ~ I’m starting a new category: Should be Slapped

  1. Slapped?

    Are you kidding – she is in line for an NAACP Image Award if she keeps indoctrinating her students (especially the white ones) as she is doing.

  2. Hello there!

    Only in America….

    The superintendent of schools in Cumberland County, North Carolina has posted on Youtube an apology and a promise that the situation will be “thoroughly investigated and appropriate action will be taken.”

  4. Roni says:

    This woman should be fired! Simple as that…she was wrong for doing that and she really needs to be slapped.
    That’s all I’m going to say right now, because I am very angry with her.

  5. Tiffany says:

    This is a fantastic candidate for being slapped! I agree with Roni that she really should be fired. How dare she scare a young child by saying that her father could spend another 100 years in Iraq if a particular candidate is elected. Most people don’t send their children to school to be brainwashed by the teacher!!!

  6. S. Cain says:

    That was disgusting. Why she would tell a kid that one’s father will be in a place for 100 years is shameful. She obviously has scales over her eyes, and cotton in her ears, like a classic hypocrite. I also disagree with the fact that the kids were asked to out their opinions. It’s not about secrecy and dignity, it’s about influencing young minds unduly. She has done irreparable damage, I must assume, to some of those young kids outlook on elections in the future. She didn’t browbeat, it was obviously more subtle than that. She really wanted everyone to think the way she did, so that she could say with a beaming smile “in my class…”

  7. Sadie says:

    In reply to Tiffany, it is true most parents don’t send their child(ren) to school to be indoctrinated but that is what is happening all too often.

    This teacher didn’t present an unbiased lesson, she didn’t ask good questions, she focused on one topic (which I am surprised she got away with in pro-military NC), and how cruel to pit student against student especially among the vulnerable middle school age group.

  8. Thuyen says:

    Sadly, what she said to the student in my mind is NOT the most disturbing part. The disturbing part is taping the whole thing shamelessly and bragging about it afterwards about what she did. She joins Nancy Grace in my list of saying “have you NO SHAME? WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?”

  9. Thuyen says:

    Just to make myself clear, I am also VERY disgusted with what the teacher said to the student. It came off to me as bullying and intimidation.

    I do know there are plenty of liberal teachers at both high school and college levels who resort to this tactic that the teacher used with the young girl at the elementary level. Only thing is at the higher levels of education, grades are used as hanging over the students’ heads.

    Thank goodness we don’t have that in Canada. Well,except for psuedo-scientist/activist Suzuki telling elementary students that PM Harper is evil and is out to destroy the planet.

  11. Andre says:

    To be fair, you could easily juxtapose this story to the incident involving a woman who refused to give candy to trick or treaters whose parents were Obama supporters. Point being: this election season has provided countless examples (on BOTH sides) where ignorance and narrow-minded indoctrination were being forced on kids.

    But what makes this story particularly worrisome is that it’s goin’ down in a school where young children ostensibly committed to learning are being bullied by an older person about their beliefs. Despicable.

  12. …lets not forget that the young lady said she was going for McCain solely on the fact that her parents were going for him. Not because she weighed the difference in the policies of the two candidates.

    Granted, these are children. But at what point to do we engage our children to become thinkers and ask real questions. Maybe they will go home, ask their parents to explain the difference between the two candidates, and if possible, to decided who they would support even if it’s opposite of their parents.

    JUXTAPOSE that with close to half of Texan adults who thought that Obama was a muslim. If you want to slap anybody slap them, then yourselves! IMO

  13. Thuyen says:

    “‚Ķlets not forget that the young lady said she was going for McCain solely on the fact that her parents were going for him. Not because she weighed the difference in the policies of the two candidates.”

    Morals and values for a child should be informed by parents, not the schools.

    “To be fair, you could easily juxtapose this story to the incident involving a woman who refused to give candy to trick or treaters whose parents were Obama supporters.”

    I agree that is ridiculous as well. It is not like not giving candies will change the minds of those parents who are Obama supporters, but only serve to antagonize them further.

    I oppose Obama’s policies. I think if he does what he says he is going to do on abortion, I think morally we are in trouble, for example.

    But I don’t hate him. And now that he is our President, we need to at least respect the office he is in.

    Romans 13 states that we are to submit to those God put over us in authority. Obama has been elected President so that means God puts him in as our President.

    Does that mean I am saying God agrees with Obama? No.

    God throughout the OT has put pagan powers over Israel to chastise Israel.

    I am in no way labeling Obama a pagan, but making a point that by God’s providence a person comes to power is in no way an endorsement of that person’s views or morals.
