Teacher attacks student for questioning Obama

Here is all you need to know about leftist teachers. There are so many of us have been saying this for so long, you can see the state of education in the U.S. and in England but you need to actually listen to one of these to realize what sort of “person” is in charge of your children. Listen while reading on below:

Teachers are supposed to be smarter than their students. But, that’s not the case with a North Carolina high school Social Studies teacher, Tanya Dixon-Neely. After bringing up an unconfirmed claim that Mitt Romney supposedly bullied a fellow classmate in the past, one of her students mentioned, in the form of a question, that Obama admitted to bullying a classmate in his past, too. The teacher became unhinged and started yelling. Her force of law to shut him down was to tell the class that it was a “criminal offense” to slander the president. The high school student’s response was to give the teacher a quick lesson on the First Amendment, saying “They cannot take away your right to have your opinion. They can’t take that away unless you threaten the president.”

Via Lucianne, the Salisbury Post this is the notation on the above youtube:

It begins with a classroom conversation about a recent news story detailing Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney allegedly bullying a classmate in prep school. It turns into a heated, sometimes confrontational debate.

One student asks, “Didn’t Obama bully someone though?”

The teacher responds: “Not to my knowledge.”

In response to the Romney story, conservatives have recently been pointing to a passage in Obama’s book, “Dreams from My Father,” in which the president writes that while in grade school he shoved a little girl, the only other black student in his grade, after other students called him her boyfriend.

When the student tells the teacher that Obama admitted to bullying a girl in school, the teacher goes on the defensive.

“Stop, no, because there is no comparison,” she says. Romney, she says, is “running for president. Obama is the president.”

When the student says they’re both “just men,” the teacher continues to argue that Romney, as a candidate for president, is not to be afforded the same respect as the president.

The teacher tells the class Obama is “due the respect that every other president is due.”

“Listen, let me tell you something, you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom,” she says.

The student replies that he’ll say what he wants.

“Not about him you won’t,” the teacher says.

Later in the conversation, the teacher tells the class it’s criminal to slander a president.

“Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush?” she says of former President Bush. “Do you realize you are not supposed to slander the president?”

The student responds by saying being arrested for talking badly about the president would violate the right to free speech.

“You would have to say some pretty f’d up crap about him to be arrested,” he says. “They cannot take away your right to have your opinion. … They can’t take that away unless you threaten the president.”

A Social Studies teacher who doesn’t understand the First Amendment. Apparently, you don’t need to know about the Bill of Rights to teach our children. I’m sure she’ll retire at 50 with a full pension, paid for by the taxpayers. Too bad you can’t fix stupid.

This is what we are up against. This “teacher” probably feels she’d been eminently reasonable and fair-minded. This is the delusion of the leftist and his/her viciousness when crossed, devoid of logic.

    The teacher responds: “Not to my knowledge.”

    His biography claims he got in to fist-fights and split other kid’s lips. It also says he drove off after drinking too much liquor.

    Mind you, I don’t reckon either of them happened, not in real-life.

    Bit harsh on the teacher though. She’s trying to shout some discipline in to a bunch of louts and make a point about respect for the Office of the President. Far from being a leftist plot, she sounds like a teacher being wound-up by a barrack-room lawyer. Unfortunately, she’s wrong on certain matters of fact. She tries to be fair to Bush, although it’s clear she’s not a fan.

    She deserves a better president, better pupils and better than being ragged on the internet when she may have had no idea she was being recorded.

    Your argument in general may be sound (I think so), but this clip doesn’t substantiate it.

    I find it hard to relate that clip to any kind of teacher/pupil/classroom experience I ever had in my childhood or adolescence.There seems to be a total lack of respect for each other on all sides.

    Good luck with that educational system!

    WRONG assumption: Teachers are supposed to be smarter than their students
    NO
    Teachers are supposed to be more experienced, and better-informed, in their specialist subjects than their students.
    Otherwise, how would we get (in the sciences) Nobel Prizwinners?

    The arrogance of the pupils is also interesting.

    I think you are on to a loser with this one.
