I live in Michigan and I can tell you it's not the whole state. Not even close where I am.

I do work for the county in a field even more liberal than teachers. Hell, I might reactivate my Facebook account to proclaim that Trump is our President. I could totally use a nice early retirement.



Oh I know it’s not the whole state, I was just making an example; it doesn’t matter how many people hate Trump, it’s not a legit reason to fire someone.

My wife is an education coordinator for a charter school system, they axed a huge amount of teachers once the shutdowns occurred due to budgets. I haven’t asked her what’s going on with those positions for the start of the new year.

I imagine stuff like music, art and phys ed are going to be on the chopping block for many schools.

Now imagine if he said “ keep our schools closed this fall!” “Im dome being silent, trump is not my president” and later deleting “Republicans sux!”

This would never be a story as it’s happened plenty of times with no action. His crime is having the wrong opinion.

a reply to: Annee



So you choose to believe.

But, there’s always more to the story in these type incidents.

Could it be there is more to this story?

There usually is.


...and if this IS the whole story?---Do you support his being fired?


Depends on the contract he signed.

Depends on the rules of the school district in regards to multi-media.

Depends on if he had previous warnings/violations.

Which is usually the case in these matters.

If none of that applies — I see no wrong doing.

I dunno. I just can't imagine a teacher being fired 8 years ago for saying "Barak Obama is our President" on social media. Not even if the teacher's contract prohibited it (a prohibition that I think would be a ludicrous thing for the teachers' union to allow to happen).

I mean, a teacher whose job would be threatened over stating Obama was president (even if the implication was that it was a political support statement) would have had people fighting for him/her to keep their job. If that were the case, the same idea should apply to this person; who that president is should not matter.

What do I choose to believe exactly? All I’ve done is point out the man stated his political opinion which seems damnable to some. I’m all ears if you want to share more specifics outlining the “something more”. It seems you have al belief that the school behaved correctly in this situation, which from the information presented I disagree with. If you don’t have more than your belief there’s something there, perhaps you shouldn’t embarrass yourself making assumptions?

Facts is facts.
How is that a fire-able offence or even close?!
He should sue them for wrongful termination for stating a fact and win his job back plus a bunch of money.

You have zero knowledge of what has transpired over time between this teacher, other teachers, and the administration.

You do not have all the facts. There is always more to these stories.

Him posting: “Liberals Suck” didn’t help him.

Not surprising.

Look what they're doing to Alex Jones for daring to ask tough questions. They've even denied him the right to file a motion to dismiss. Absolutely ludicrous.

I frequently donate to Infowars and Alex. Bigly.

So all those posting anti Trump nonsense should be held to the same standard. Ridiculous unions and teachers unions, time to bust them up like we did to Microsoft.

Oh wait if you express anti Trump or anti conservative sentiments they'll let you serve as jury foreman for a Trump associate or even put you in charge of an FBI investigation into them (albeit a made up one)

And you all wonder why we can't stand liberals, their double standards and their hypocrisy

The only bright side is they've made sure none of us would ever go back to the dark ages of oBama and Co. without one HELL of a fight

I’m not going to play “pass the trash” with you.

This is about one teacher and his dismissal.

HE is saying he got fired for the post. The school is saying something else.

And again — these situations are never a single incident. There’s ALWAYS more to the story.

Like what? You mean he said nice things about Republicans more than once? He told his students about how communism has claimed more innocent lives than the Nazis? How modern d'rats spout of communist or socialist talking points like their second language? He tell them how 99% of the BS about Trump is made up by butthurt radicals?

Just what offense would that be exactly? Sounds like YOU are generalizing and frankly guessing.

Teachers unions have got to go!

You are injecting hyperbole into a situation you do not have the facts for.

Not one single line of that was hyperbole. I wish to God it were Annee.

Like it or not Republicans and Democrats got along just fine for centuries until the radical socialist communists came along. Dems are in decline and they won't be able to fix it until thy do what we did with the tea party movement: police their own numbers and isolate/push out undesirable elements.

Do democrats REALLY support lawlessness? Attacks on police? Replacing police with nonsworn civilians? Socialism? Flirting with communists? Defending China over the US?

I have to believe they don't, and are too shortsighted to see the long term costs. We both know socialism doesn't work. Even if you somehow managed to find voters in the short term, it would lead to the largest upset in history even counting 2016
