course she meant what she said. dont know why that students parents are defending her. she was mean and ill spirited and it shows the liberal left is trying to take over in our high schools as they have hijacked all the colleges and universities in our nation in so far as what is taught and the political bent of the professors who teach the students. fire this racist as soon as possible at least suspend her from the classroom without pay so folks can see there is a penalty for being holier than thou.

So, the parents and the child are lying? If anyone can excuse the teacher's actions, it is them. Let's see if the conservative "newsbreakers" report the WHOLE story.

Whole story, so you think this is right what teacher did. if this had been a white teacher belittling a black student would you feel the same. i think not my hypocritical friend because of the double standard that exists in our country. the hell with the double standard. what is good for the goose is good for the gander.

i would like to know the political affiliation of the teacher involved, were they involved in local politics, if so in what party, lots of questions yet to be answered. this bullshit will not be swept under the rug by liberal left wing numbnuts who praise and glorify the double standards by which they live and breathe.

Right thing, we all know that the first time anyone criticizes obama on some thing he does, they will be called a racist. Karen does too. she just wont admit it. now i dont expect the major news media to criticize much. they were in the tank for him all along. you may see some mild criticism approved by obama adm. beforehand, but that is all oh i missed the orgy when MSNBC and CNN declared obama the winner. shame bet that was just some good pornographic television.

Teacher's need to be reminded to keep their political views out of the classroom. Decent teachers can describe the political process without showing bias.

The Teacher's Unions need to send out a missive instructing teachers to keep their personal views to themselves. This particular teacher is probably no worse than many, but she needs to be made an example of to keep children from being indoctrinated.

The United States of America needs a vibrant TWO party system to keep a representative Democracy/Republic alive.

Fallon, the teachers unions have already sent out a missive about a year ago instructing their teachers to push for the election of obama and disparage anyone expresssing sympathy for his opponent. yall cant have it both ways. the hypocritical teachers unions have never been for free expression of ideas in class room. in college where one is supposedly an adult, ledft wing indoctrination is a constant and forever thing and only a well grounded young person can survive any college and university in this land without becoming a left wing liberal drone.

And if we could rid the school system of those whose mission is to indoctrinate ten year olds instead of teaching basic math and reading skills we would also move forward to a better place.

Move along, nothing to see here! Oh, lord, oh, Jesus, Obama. Are you going to believe the press or your lying eyes? She was just joking. Obama button? Did you see an Obama button? It was a joke, too. And, by the way, if you still think you saw something, Reverend Al is on the way to further clarify the point. Move along, nothing to see here!

NUles Thudd, your pathetic attempt to guide people away from what will be a common occurence in an obama adm. ie the liberal indoctrination of young people in high schools. colleges are already indoctrinating their students into a left wing liberal ideology, too late there. so quit trying to make light of a cornerstone of the obama adm.

Put aside this hogzilla's clear malfeasance. The really frightening thing here is the parent's acquiesce to their own child’s abuse.

you are correct, Barbara_B, the parents sould be charged with child abuse and neglect and their child taken away from them if they cannot protect their child any better than that from bullying liberal left wing teachers in a school system set up and full of liberal educators. family court should step in and remove this child from the home.

You'd have to be an idiot to believe this woman did not have a political agenda. She doesn't even speak proper English and she's teaching school? That young girl was afraid - you could see it on her face. Her parents are probably afraid of the people who are defending this woman. SHE IS NOT A TEACHER. She is planting ideas and fear into young children for her OWN personal political gain. FIRE HER.

Guess you are feeling really chipper after watching Obama's first press conference, and now you think race has nothing to do with why he is there...he called himself a 'mutt' and you are calling me insensitive. GOD HELP US ALL FOR WHAT'S COMING DOWN THE ROAD.
