Sorry speech mod police, practicing political correctness with a conservative agenda I see

At least the teacher correctly identified the student as middle Eastern in decent as opposed to
mistakenly saying this idiocy to a Hispanic student (which happens from time to time when
biased people open their mouths)

Welll..I don't think anyone was taking a poll on faith amongst the celebration...but perhaps a couple quick links will satisfy the slightly xenophobic nature of your question? I am guessing not...but hold out hope.

Arab Americans, Muslims rejoice at death of bin Laden
www.usatoday.com...

Oklahoma Muslims were elated to learn Sunday night that Osama bin Laden had been killed by U.S. troops in Pakistan.

Can you tell a person's religion by looking at them? I saw footage of a lot of people outside, I couldn't tell how many Catholics or Jews were rejoicing either.

Where's the Long Form????

Really I think Americans have grown exhausted with the McArthiesm...enough of looking around the melting pot and accusing your fellow Americans of not being American enough....

Our most recent cycle of intolerance and McArtheism is wimpering to close IMO...and I am glad to see it go.

well, I don't know your intent behind asking how many Muslims were rejoicing, but my interpretation was that you seemed to not think they were. In Chicago, the largest Muslim quasi political organization did hold a press conference to express their happiness that OBL was taken out.

here's another teacher whom was fired due to the fact she admitted her past as a 'sex worker'?
on a karmic scale of 1 to 10?
op dude is an 8 and the 'hooker teacher' is a 4.




I have two master's degrees, five years' experience in the nonprofit sector and three years' experience teaching -- and I cannot get a job. Why? Just google me. I'm the "Hooker Teacher" -- at least that's what I've come to be called ever since Sept. 27, 2010, when I found myself on the cover of the New York Post. "Meet Melissa Petro," the story began," the teacher who gives a new twist to sex ed." The piece describes me as a "tattooed former hooker and stripper" who was "shockingly upfront about her past." Indeed, earlier that month, I'd written an Op-Ed on the Huffington Post that criticized the recent censoring of the adult services section of Craigslist and came clean about my own sex-worker past. Because I was arguing that sex workers shouldn't be ashamed to speak for themselves, I signed my name to it. The New York Post wasn't interested in my politics, however; its interest seemed only in cooking up shock that an elementary school teacher would dare admit such a shady history.

What has that got to do with anything?

There are plenty of none union thugs who are also rarely sensitive.



What a cheap shot!

What a stupid, insensitive remark for that teacher to say! And to make a student cry, and show no remorse!

Has that person shown a pattern of similar dealings with students? Has that person been counseled to stop that behavior? If so, then there could be a case for dismissal. These would be questions, I, as a parent, would want to know.

I'm thinking that if that were my child, I would find this a fitting punishment: make that teacher write a letter of apology and then spend 4 Saturdays with my family. S/he would be accompanied by the principal, who would sit silently as an observer. If that teacher was unable to interact with civility, then that could be a sign for that person to take up another profession.

OTOH apparently if that teacher's students had great test scores, then that teacher would be praised and given more pay, and be labeled a great teacher.

You know, as a parent, I would also have to sit down with my child at some point and tell him the facts of life. That there are mean adults out there who are not good examples of how to act, that mean people suck, and that's a good reason not to be mean.

LOL good one.

It's kinda ironic the poster makes a completely insensitive remark in a thread that addresses insensitive remarks.

(the remark was insensitive to union members)

Not the be RACIST or anything, but of course this happened in Texas. Where else?

Arizona you say? Yeah it might have happened in Arizona too. Sorry Texas, you're not the only predictably ignorant state anymore.

I do not agree with your accusation regarding Texas. These ignorant idiots are in every state, most are just more coy about their racism.

This teacher needs to be fired and it should be demanded by the people of Texas.

What a total jerk. I sometimes wonder why certain people get into their lines of work when they're clearly not right for the job. To not only be a racist, but to have no problem spewing hatred at a child..why on earth would you become a teacher??

Do you realize that your "BUT" totally negates everything you said previously???

When I read your post...this is what I hear: "Disclaimer, I don't agree with this, BUT, I really do."


What does it matter what unrelated muslims did, bottom line is that this girl didn't deserve those remarks. And it's comments like this teachers, and like yours, that create the environment of hate. :shk:
