Teacher goes after 5th grader to score cheep political points for Obama

This is a clip from a Swedish documentary.

So this is how teachers act in the classroom?  Attacking a child because the kids parents supported McCain and by extension the child does and then lying about and misrepresenting a quote from McCain to score cheep political points against a 5th grader.  Classy isn’t it?

  1. While this is definitely not classy behavior, 1) I don’t think it’s possible to score political points against a 5th grader; and B) You really can’t lay this at Obama’s feet. This was an individual’s poor decision-making, not a Democratic party strategy.

  2. Well I didn’t say it was Obama’s fault or a part of the Democrats election strategy now did I so your point on that one was what?

    Secondly it is possible to try to score political points on a 5th grader it’s just that most people have enough class not to do it. It’s about indoctrinating children and mocking them until they believe what you want them too instead of teaching them things like how to read.

  3. What a dumbass!

  4. Well if it wasn’t for stupid people Obama wouldn’t be our next President now would he?

  5. touche

  6. I think she’s lost her job. Youtube will do that to ya.

  7. As she should have been.

  8. I HAD a teacher like that for 3 years. Grades 3,4 and 5.

    I grew up behind the iron curtain. My dad was a known dissident….my teacher liked to score political points (everyone thought the walls had ears) by showing how tough she was on a child from a ‘politically unstable background’ – and, I guess, so she would not be accused of liking me (she was the local party whip).

    At least once a week she would pick on me in much the same manner this teacher did with the kid whose dad supported McCain – but worse. Way worse.

    When I saw that girl’s face, it was like I was sitting in the classroom again.

    I really hope that teacher got fired!

  9. Yeah the teacher was fired but I think some other school hired her. It’s sad.

    Xanthippa I understand some of what you say. Not that I have lived with what you have. I have seen teachers like that though.

    I have read a few things like Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago and Kang Chol-Hwan’s The Aquariums of Pyongyang to at least think I can understand a bit about what it was to live under the worst parts of communist system. In fact I am not ashamed to admit that both books brought me to tears. You however know what it is to live like that and without trying to sound sappy can say I respect and admire the courage of people who lived through those horrors and where able to rise above it.

    Never forget what you have seen and never forget to remind people about the truth.

  10. Thank you!

    I have never suffered what Sozhenitsyn (and the like) suffered – the Gulag Archipelago brought many tears to my eyes as well. Compared to that – I have led a safe and coddled life!

    But, I will never forget who I was (as a child, I was fully brainwashed),or why I chose to become someone else (I threw off the blinders on my own, without help from anyone, when I was about 11 – though it was a gradual process, nothing quick and sudden). Yeah, I know, I AM sounding sappy – but there is no other way of expressing what I truly think and feel.

    And I will never forget that Canada offered me a safe haven when I needed one. Canadians welcomed me with opened arms and allowed me to become one of them. I never say what my country of origin is – not because I am ashamed or shy or anything, but because I am a CANADIAN by choice – and I will NOT hyphonate that, nor allow anyone else to!

    One thing that struck me in Canada was the different attitudes people had towards things – but especially towards each other… And, it has been sad to see how this difference has been eroded, how slowly and surely, the attitudes of people here in Canada are becoming more like those of people in ‘Socialist People’s States’… NO!!! NOT THE SAME YET!!! But, the trend is unmistakable.

    And I’ll be damned if I don’t do everything in my power to stop this and set things right again! I owe Canada that much!

    Yeah, I know, sappy….but true!

  11. Keep fighting the world needs it.
