NC teacher slams student for “disrespect”of Obama

by on May 21, 2012

Sounds like it was the teacher who was disrespecting thoughtful conversation in the classroom. She must be very upset with North Carolina voters after the NC gay marriage Amendment too.

“”Didn’t Obama bully somebody though?” a student in the North Carolina classroom asked when the report was brought up, referring to an incident Obama described in his memoir “Dreams From My Father.” In the book, Obama wrote that, as a child, he once pushed a female classmate after other students taunted them — the only two black students in their grade — and called Obama her boyfriend.

The teacher, in the video, said she didn’t know whether Obama bullied anyone — but the argument quickly escalated, as the teacher yelled at the student, telling him “there is no comparison.”

“He’s running for president,” she said of Romney. “Obama is the president.”

The student argued that both candidates are “just men,” but the teacher took issue with the statement.

“He’s just a man. Obama is no god,” the student said.

The teacher responded: “Let me tell you something … you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom.”

The teacher went on to say the two candidates are “not equal.”

According to the Salisbury Post, the teacher is still employed and has not been suspended.
