School officials later told her Baker had apologized to Chelsea, but said she had thought Chelsea would be able to take a joke, Gilbert said.

I'm sure the teacher would have gotten the joke if the kid called her a dried up coont

Uncle Tractor: Also, the teacher was wrong, because you're not a real christian if you vote Republican:


He didn't say the state will take all your stuff and give it to the poor. There's a huge difference between charity and being compelled by the power of the sword to "give".

Well, I see you're applying for the psychology teaching position.

Yes. As a good Republican, I want to teach Republican psychology in a Republican class and a Republican school.

I see. Fine. And your degree in teaching is from.

Republican University, the Ronald Reagan School of Psychology

Both: All Hail Ronald Reagan! He can do no wrong as he walks among us still!

Very nice. Sadly, I must admit we have some of them in our school.

Blacks?

No.

Mehicanos?

No.

Underachieving drooling retards?

Well, this is Kentucky, so yeah. But I'm talking about Democrats. We have some children who align themselves to the Democratic Party in this school.

Really?

Yes.

No. I mean, really? This is 2012.

Well their parents get free stuff from the government. Money, cell phones, food. All they do is sit around watching free cable TV and breed.

Oh them. Well, none of their demon spawn would be smart enough to get through psychology. Plus they'll never get in to Heaven.

Oh no. They'll get in to a private college before they'll ever get in to Heaven.

Ha ha ha

Quite. Ha ha ha. So, you'll take the job?

Sure. I can't wait to teach all those young Republicans about psychology.

You know, you'll have to tell them that psychology is a "Black Art" like Medicare.

Of course. Republicans are smart enough to see through all this hokey. Jesus made them what they are. In his image and he wants them to have most of the stuff.

You know? You're pretty hot in that business suit and high heels.

And I was just drooling over you and that nearly not there skirts and transparent blouse.

Wanna do some teacher on teacher teaching?

I'll proctor.

Thisbymaster: steerforth: KrispyKritter: way to miss the point, geniuses. it was a psychology class. she was trying to get the students provoked, to think and react. herp derp bible! morans.

That was my reading as well. The teacher is running an experiment. Not a very well controlled experiment, but one nonetheless.

Hopefully.

This was my reaction to it as well. It is a good question to use to judge a person's political leanings.


Nope. Not an experiment:

TFA: During the classroom discussion, Baker made remarks in class against same-sex marriage, Gilbert said. Chelsea Gilbert, an admirer of Obama, told Baker she was offending people, Mary Gilbert said. There are gay students in the class, Mary Gilbert said. She said Baker responded by telling Chelsea she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare. The exchange upset Chelsea, who came home crying, Gilbert said.

Any quality teacher using this as a social experiment wouldn't respond to "I'm offended." with "Well, Obama will kill your parents!". They would talk about why people become offended.

TFA: Baker said she had heard the line from a student, and that it was one of her new favorite quotes, Gilbert said.

Also, it's Kentucky.

ThrobblefootSpectre: Heh, so many people responding to derogatory stereotyping of one group, with derogatory stereotyping of some other group, while pretending to be better than the teacher. This is why fark amuses me so.

/She shouldn't talk about a group of people that way! Southerners are so stupid!

/thread full of bigots


As a Southerner surrounded by idiots, I say that it is an accurate characterization. By and large, the vast majority of Southerners are farktards. So shut up.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: I can't wrap my brain around stories like this. I mean, WTF was this "teacher" thinking when she did that? Send the kids home to enlighten their parents? Sway future voters? Did she believe there would be no repercussions? And if she believed there would be no repercussions, isn't she too farking stupid to be a teacher?

/WTF? on so many levels


She believes that Real Muricans are all secretly united. That they are a huge majority. That the election was a fraud. That she has to help trigger The Great Uprising.
 
2012-11-28 08:29:20 AM
Reprimand the teacher, there's not much reason in defending her in it. Though it is funny to see people jumping all over it like it's the worst thing she could possibly be doing. Meanwhile we have entire school systems nationwide providing children with the mindset that everything they do is perfectly alright regardless of the results, that if they're ever criticized for their words or actions that the critic is always wrong, that if you're smarter or stronger than others you will only ever attain the same accolades as those dumber and weaker, and that the system will defend you at every transgression. These kinds of policies then allow and promote immediate OMG GO DIAF response to anyone with opinions opposed to the current direction of momentum. While I don't want to see a completely Spartan fight or die system I think we've gone much too far into babying our babies. Resolve is just as important as reason.

Considering 90% of teachers and college professors are liberals who have a great platform of indoctrination to work with; I'm getting a kick out of how badly they foam at the mouth when they realize they let one slip through the cracks.
 
2012-11-28 08:32:56 AM
I've stated this before and it cuts both ways. A teacher's religious and political beliefs should not be taught in the classroom. Period. In this case, she should be sticking to teaching psychology.

BokerBill: "You can't be a Democrat & go to heaven"


Why does everyone here have a problem with this statement? This seems like a pretty straightforward logical proposition. It states, the set of people who are Democrats and the set of people who go to heaven have no common elements. Any atheist would conclude this proposition is obviously true since the set of people who go to heaven is itself a null set. Even for Christians it is not demonstrably false: the Bible names exactly two people who have gone to heaven: {Elijah, Jesus}. Neither member of that set was a Democrat at the time. 

So, yeah, the teacher is a bully. But she's right.


It is also not demonstrably true. The statement she wrote was not in the past tense, and in fact implicitly aimed at the future. There are plenty of Christian Dems, they would be inclined to be offended by this rhetoric, as the young lass in the article was. The teacher is not right.

Lol yup all those professors who were like "you can't be a republican and pass this class." Then started going on and on about how non-religious they are.

Yup, that's college all right, where you definitely were. Yup you were definitely in college to see all that bs for yourself, yyyyyup. Good for you!

I'm sure a few christian democrats say the same thing about Republicans. Though if they do, they're better at hiding it. Come on. Opinions are one thing. But if it's going to harm your job, don't leave physical evidence.

I see the problem here. She ACTUALLY wrote small "d" democrat (unlike the trolly headline). She meant you you can't live in a democratic society and go to heaven, it has nothing to do with political parties.

I don't care that she is Republican. The problem is that:
1. She espousing religious beliefs in school
2. She is letting her political beliefs interfere with her teaching
3. She is fostering an unprofessional atmosphere.

Why is a Psychology teacher talking about politics? What does "she would someday have to take her parents to the emergency room and watch them die because of the president's health care reform law, commonly called Obamacare." have to do with psychology?

Do I think she should be fired? No.
Do I think she should be punished severly? Yes.

Yeah goddamned liberals with all their facts and statistics and truth, how dare they try and teach kids that stuff. Kids would be much better off learning about fantasy and wishes from the bible. I mean when I was an undergraduate engineering student I was appalled at how liberal my professors were. One of them even taught me about wind turbines, which is clearly a reference to the liberal lie about global warming.

The position of the Catholic Church (and therefore all real Christian denominations) is that you cannot be a Democrat and go to heaven. Voting for any pro-abortion candidate is a mortal sin. If you have voted Democrat you are not allowed to receive communion.
