Teacher Compares Studentís Romney Shirt to KKK Robe
Fox News ^ | 10/03/12 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 10/03/2012 5:22:26 PM PDT by DFG

A Philadelphia high school teacher is under investigation after she reportedly ordered a student to take off a t-shirt supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and compared the shirt to a Ku Klux Klan sheet.

The incident occurred at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond. When the student refused the order, she tried to throw the girl out of class.

The teacher reportedly told the 16-year-old student that the high school was a “Democratic school” and then threatened to use a marker to cross out Romney’s name.

Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard confirmed to Philly.com that, “a teacher made some comments to a student wearing a Romney t-shirt in their classroom.”

“The comments were of a political nature, and also of a personal nature,” he told the newspaper. “We are looking into the comments, and the conduct of the teacher.”

Student should have told the teacher to shut up since it is actually a Democrat T-shirt. They created the KKK right after the War of Secession.

I wish conservative parents would add up all the many many incidents of this kind which occur in government schools-always directed by leftists to a student displaying conservative views or support-and get the big picture. It’s the left, the sodomites, indoctrinating white guilt, indoctrinating white male guilt, etc. Do you really want these people forming your child’s mind and worldview? You won’t be able to overcome it-especially in the teen years when peer pressure is the irresistable force par excellence that the government schools utilise to keep your child in line. Get them out, sacrifice what you must, it will be worth it!

Oh my Watson, by simple deduction and process of elimination, I believe our culprit is the English teacher with two names: Ms. Taylor-Garvey, English.

It’s elementary, my dear fellow! There are only two female teachers listed on the Instructional Staff, and one teaches `Special Ed’ which must be populated by Democrats who would be disinclined to wear a Romney t-shirt.

Further deduction on my part leads me to surmise that Ms. Taylor-Garvey may be what the Americans call an “African-American.” However this remains sheer speculation and only an injection of cocaine, heavy tobacco usage and violin play will allow a definitive conclusion, so bring it on and,

Mr. Romney, please do—be a good fellow and kick the bounder’s race-baiting a** up between his ears, eh? Right-O!

and then threatened to use a marker to cross

To threaten a student could be considered, at least, harassment and/or bullying. Both are which should be against school rules. If the teacher would have actually carried out her threat to cross out then that would have been considered assault.

For the left, what goes around comes around. George Orwell wrote about his time fighting in Spain with socialists. He said that the term `fascist’ became so degraded that eventually it came to mean `anything disagreeable,’ e.g. `I think our drinks have been watered by that fascist waiter.’
Here it looks like the teacher found Romney disagreeable, so the kid wearing the shirt must have been racist, or at least the shirt was racist. I worked in an office with Obama fanatics. There was no reasoning with them.
Recall there was another instance where an Obama teacher ordered her class to vote for Obama. And these are only instances being reported.

I go round and round with friends I know in the South and those very things I bring up. Plus - they call it the War of Northern Aggression. Oh? So who fired the first shots on Ft. Sumter? Who invaded the North almost to DC? (Bull Run/Manassas)? Then too, they talked about Yankee destruction. Please tell me about Andersonville and Ft. Pillow. Shuts them up every time.

It’s also been called “The War of Southern Independence’’. Independence for whom? Southern slaves? I always way hit them with ‘’It’s mighty curious to see people who call themselves conservatives venerating of bunch of Dixiecrats.’’ That one shuts them up too.

Right. I forgot about that one. If they wanted to be independent then why call it a civil war? The interpretation of a civil war would be akin to a war between Republicans and Democrats to take over the Union. The South wanted to go their own way. The first newspapers came out with the headlines stating “The Union Is Dissolved”

Shuts them up.... Probably because such a statement is so profoundly ignorant and intellectually lacking they figure, why bother?

What tickles me is that people in the north think they have inherited some imagined moral high ground, when the facts are, there were more slave states under the US flag than there were under the Confederate flag, the war did NOT begin with the intention of freeing the slaves, and that there is NOTHING moral about freeing the black man while at the same time denying liberty to white Southerners. (A demonstration of hypocrisy totally lost on northerners.)

Such facts usually are enough to shut up even the most ignorant “Civil War” debaters, but some the less intelligent ones just can’t help themselves.

Nice try “Ghost’’. I’ll say it again. I find it mighty curious to see people calling themselves conservatives coming to a conservative website venerating a bunch of racist Southern plutocrats who were democrats. The bottom line is Mr. “Lost Causer’’ is once a Democrat always a Democrat. I know damn well the history. No, it wasn’t Lincoln initial intention to free the slaves but the South certainly wasn’t fighting to free them either. ‘’The ‘’liberty’’ you claim denied to white Southerners was the right of a class to own slaves and property, the war the South started wasn’t of any benefit to poor white Southerners.

Yep. They still want their segregation and their separate but equal nonsense. He is right however saying it wasn’t a war to free the slaves. All slaves had to do was get across into northern states before being hunted down. That’s what the 14th. Amendment was all about. The Emancipation Proclamation was nonsense too. It didn’t free any slave. It was basically an executive order by Lincoln. It was pandering to the border states which were slave states that did not declare their secession from the United States before April 1861.

Lord, son. You’re so far off base you’re in left field. I can loathe slavery but still defend the motivations.

You are using 21st century words and beliefs and wrongly applying them to 19th century perspectives. And that which made a democrat a democrat in 1860 is completely different than that of today’s democrat. Apples and oranges.

Nest, you don’t have to be a Lost Causer to discuss the pros and cons the WBTS and all that goes with it. That’s just intellectual laziness people like you use to “dismiss” serious discussion.

If you had called slave owners of the time (both those in the north and the south) “racists” they would have had NO idea what you are talking about, nor would the abolitionists. And given that more than 3000 of said slave owners were black, it simply makes your comment (I’ll be nice) nonsense. Yes, by today’s thinking their (northerners and southerners) views on the black race were totally different then. Disgustingly different, but it was the perspective they held at that time.

“No, it wasn’t Lincoln initial intention to free the slaves but the South certainly wasn’t fighting to free them either.”

Then what’s your problem with my original comments?

“The ’liberty’ you claim denied to white Southerners was the right of a class to own slaves and property...”

Again...nonsense. The RIGHT I am talking about is the right to freely join a union of sovereign states...or to leave a union of sovereign states. A right that was hotly defended by both northern AND southern people at different times in our history leading up to the war.

Think about it (because, given your comments, it is obvious that you never have); Lincoln and the Union were saying to southerners, you do NOT have the freedom to leave this union. The liberty of a people to govern themselves — so fiercely fought for in the Revolutionary War — was denied. And if you had done any reading about Reconstruction whatsoever, you would know that southerners were treated far worse than the slaves ever were. Liberties and freedoms were almost non-existent.

By the way, “War Between the States” is the accurate description, as a “civil war” is one where people try to take over the government. The Confederates had no desire to take over the Union government...they simply wanted to be free to practice the principals of self rule established by the Founding Fathers and otherwise left alone.

Shaking head in disgust with your sanctimonious attitude and ignorance. The truth is, I love talking about this stuff...with people who actually want knowledge.

Two things: 1) Address my points THEN we can talk about Andersonville.

2) If we talk about Andersonville, we also talk about Camp Douglas.

“Prisoners were deprived of clothing to discourage escapes. Many wore sacks with head and arm holes cut out; few had underwear. Blankets to offset the bitter northern winter were confiscated from the few that had them. The weakest froze to death. The Chicago winter of 1864 was devastating. The loss of 1,091 lives in only four months was heaviest for any like period in the camp’s history, and equaled the deaths at the highest rate of Andersonville from February to May, 1864. Yet, it is the name of Andersonville that burns in infamy, while there exists a northern counterpart of little shame.”

Pal, I'm not interested in your spin. The South sought to dissolve the Union and preserve slavery as well as expand it into Kansas and launched a war that cost the lives of 660,000 Americans to do it. Address that why don't you. My problem with the Lost Causers is their romance of the Dixiecrat South and their belief in the ‘’right of secession’’.

I’m well aware that Lincoln had no desire to free the slaves. But however one looks at it, slavery WAS the reason for the war. My main bone of contention is this nonsense they push about the right to secede and how they wanted to be ‘’independent’’ and the undeniable fact that underneath all of Southern heritage’’ nonsense is the fact that those Southern plutocrats deliberately provoked a war and fired the first shots in that war that took the lives of 660,000 Americans. Consider if the South had won, what do suppose America would look like today?

Abe was a pragmatist about the matter; Republican attempts to get slavery banned had failed. (Those wascally Democrats.)

Whether slaves were the immediate cause in the mind of the South for rebelling, they were a moral albatross around the South’s neck. They doomed the South to failure because God refused to smile upon that. The reconstructed South was morally stronger than before, because it had been forced to give up its slaves.
