The Daily Caller has a story about two teachers getting heat for posting anti-Obama messages on their Facebook page. I was ecstatic when I read the news because I assumed that all teachers were Marxists, like the one’s here in New York. Two out of several million ain’t bad, eh?
I’m just kidding. I actually had a few conservative NYC teacher friends that I used to hang-out with once in a while. There are conservatives in NY public education; they just have to stay under the radar.
One of the teachers, Sharon Aceta, from South Carolina simply repeated something one her students ‘sang’ and then added some more truth to it. Her Facebook posting read as follows: “Congrats Obama. As one of my students sang down the hallway, ‘We get to keep our food stamps’ …which I pay for because they can’t budget their money… and really, neither can you.”
Ms. Aceta later apologized and was suspended for one day. I don’t blame the teacher because she has to survive in Obama’s economy, but it’s shameful and outrageous that she was forced to apologize and punished for exercising her First Amendment rights. She didn’t use any profanity or threaten anyone.
The other teacher from a Columbus, Ohio school, who has not been named, posted the following on his/her Facebook page: “Congrats to those dependent on government, homosexuals, potheads, JAY-Z fans, non Christians, non taxpayers, illegals, communists, Muslims, planned murder clinics, enemies of America, Satan You WON!”
If I knew his/her identity, I might ask permission to use the rant on the banner of my site. Surprisingly, this teacher has yet to be punished by the school district. But I’m sure the parents of the kids that attend the school will make this teachers life hell, as will the rest of the faculty.
In Obama’s America it seems that only so-called comedians who host talk shows enjoy full First Amendment rights. They can say the most vicious and vile things, even directed at minors, without any repercussions – as long their vitriol is directed at Republicans/Conservatives, of course.
But it seems that the Constitution matters less and less nowadays. It is being dismantled through simple neglect. Just ignore it and it’ll go away by itself. And of course, elections (rule of the mob) always trump the constitution. And I hate to sound like Bill O’Reilly, but both political parties are to blame. The Democrats openly stomp on the Constitution, while the Republicans say nothing and just go along.
Welcome to Obama’s America, hope you enjoy your stay.

BTW: How does the media find all of these stories, yet ignore stories about Benghazi and voter fraud on the part of Obama’s supporters? Also, out of the thousands of hateful and even life-threatening tweets directed at Mitt Romney and his supporters prior to the election, none of them were teachers? Very hard to believe!
