Lee Francis, Teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School in Fayetteville, NC Suspended after American Flag-Stomping Faux First Amendment Lesson
THIS TEACHER WAS NOT PROVIDING ANY LESSON ABOUT FREEDOM OF SPEECH, THIS WAS ABOUT THE RADICAL LEFT’S DISRESPECT AND HATRED OF AMERICA.
Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, has been put on suspension with pay after he placed an American flag on the ground and stepped on it in an so-called effort to teach children about freedom of speech. The backlash from this disgusting act has been swift and massive on social media and from the public at large. The top school system administrator, Cumberland County Schools Superintendent Frank Till said in a statement, “Clearly, there are other ways to teach First Amendment rights without desecrating the flag.” However, the radical leftist teacher said he’s been shocked by the backlash, both in-person and on social media, that his lesson has generated. REALLY, WHAT KIND OF A CLUELESS INDIVIDUAL ARE YOU? This fool is shocked that people would be outraged that you used a school setting to desecrate an American flag in a state that has so many military installations!
A note to Lee Francis and the rest of the American hating liberal teachers in America … the majority of people in the U.S. love America and they don’t need you stomping on a flag to provide them with a lesson on free speech. This was just a hateful act of a liberal trying to spew their venom on children. Nothing more.
A teacher’s First Amendment lesson at a Fayetteville high school has sparked outrage and he has been place on leave by school officials.
Lee Francis, a teacher at Massey Hill Classical High School, said he put an American flag on the ground and stepped on it. But, he said, it was in the context of a lesson on freedom of speech.
“I put it on the ground and I used my right foot and I took two steps on it, and immediately two kids get out of the room,” he said.
A number of residents denounced Francis’ actions, calling them unpatriotic.
“I think it’s inappropriate to teach that in school,” said Fayetteville resident Grayson Chavonne. “If he wants to do that in his own home that’s his prerogative, but it doesn’t need to be taught to our kids.”
Dan Travieso, who is running for the N.C. Senate in District 21, called Francis’ lesson a direct insult to those who fought for our country and a “poor choice of judgment.”
“Just because I step on the flag doesn’t mean I step on their graves,” Francis said. “It doesn’t mean I step on their bodies as they return from overseas. It means I step on a piece of fabric.”
This fool’s statement shows just how little this man really knows and why he should never be teaching children. Guess what you moron, people have given their lives to defend the flag that is symbolic of America and liberty. Yes you were disrespecting those that died defending it and if you can’t understand that, you should be no where near teaching children.
Rasmussen Poll: Democrats Want Socialist Bernie Sanders as Hillary Clinton’s Back Up If Health Issues Forced Her to Withdraw
THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY. HELL, I AM NOT EVEN SURE IT IS BILL CLINTON’S DEMOCRAT PARTY EITHER …
A recent Rasmussen poll states that 48% of likely Democrat voters believe that self-proclaimed socialist and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton’s lone rival in the 2016 Democrat primaries, should be the party’s nominee if for some reason Hillary had to step down due to health issues. According to the poll results, 48% chose Bernie Sanders, Vice President Joe Biden received 22% and 14% opted for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Another 9% wanted some one else.
First, unless Hillary Clinton does a header off the stage during a presidential debate, she will never withdraw as she cares too much about herself and she has waited her entire life for this moment. Two, what does this say about the Democrat party that would want a socialist to be their nominee? Three, Bernie fans would feel the Democrat burn as the party would never select him, if such a situation ever presented itself.
Suppose the unthinkable took place, and Hillary Clinton was forced for health reasons to step down as the Democratic presidential nominee. Who do Democrats think should take her place?
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely Democratic Voters believe Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, Clinton’s primary rival, should be their party’s nominee if health issues forced her out of the race. Twenty-two percent (22%) say Vice President Joe Biden should be the nominee, while only 14% opt for Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, the current Democratic vice presidential candidate. Nine percent (9%) of Democrats think it should be someone else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Among all likely voters, it’s a closer contest. Thirty-six percent (36%) choose Sanders, 20% Biden and 14% Kaine. But 21% think the Democratic nominee should be someone else.
A plurality (46%) of voters believes the media is giving too much coverage to Clinton’s health issues. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say there’s not enough coverage, while 21% rate the level of coverage as about right.
I really have to wonder who the hell the 46% is above who thinks the media is providing too much coverage to Hillary Clinton’s health issues. Like the health of the individual who would be president is not an important thing especially when she has a history of collapsing, fainting, concussions, blood clots, not being able to climb stairs and generally looking like she is in just poor health. Where is the too much coverage? The media and the America people should be demanding we know her health history.
DEMOCRATS CALL FOR CONTINGENCY PLAN TO REPLACE HILLARY CLINTON IF SHE IS UNABLE TO CONTINUE …
Think Democrats aren’t worried about the non-transparency of Hillary Clinton and her campaign as related to her health? The Politico is reporting that Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party’s congressional leader should come up with a plan as soon as possible in the event that Clinton cannot go forward as the Democrat presidential nominee. Legal Insurrection asks, who would be the candidate if Hillary cannot continue? Two thing is for certain; one, if she has one more of these spells between now and election day, she is to toast. Two, if the Democrat party does replace her and Bernie Sanders gets hosed again by the DNC, all of his peeps will stay home.
However, it is highly unlikely that Hillary would ever drop out of the campaign, because its all about her and she has waited her entire life to be at this moment in time and nothing will stop her.
A former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party’s congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race.
“Now is the time for all good political leaders to come to the aid of their party,” said Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid. “I think the plan should be developed by 6 o’clock this afternoon.”
Fowler said he expects Clinton to fully recover from her bout with pneumonia, which forced her to leave a Sept. 11 memorial event early and cancel an early-week fundraising swing. But he said the Democratic Party would be mistaken to proceed without a contingency plan. The party’s existing rules empower the DNC to name a replacement candidate but include few guidelines or parameters.
“It’s something you would be a fool not to prepare for,” he said in an interview on Monday. He added a note of caution, should Clinton attempt an expeditious return to the campaign trail.
“She better get well before she gets back out there because if she gets back out there too soon, it might happen again,” he said.
Former President Bill Clinton Stumps for Hillary in Orlando, FL …. Says that Donald Trump’s Promise to “Make America Great Again” is a Racist Codeword. ” … Yet Bill Clinton said the same thing in 1991 & 2008
THE DISGUSTING HYPOCRISY OF THE CLINTON’S AND THE LEFT … WHEN BILL CLINTON SAID MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IT WASN’T RACIST, NOW IT IS.
So does this mean Bill Clinton is a racist or a hypocrite? While campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Orlando, Florida former President Bill Clinton said, “that Donald Trump’s promise to ‘Make America Great Again’ is a racist code word.” WHAT? Sick, completely sick. What a bunch of vile individuals these two are. Is it any wonder how these two gravitated to each other?
America, if you want 4 more years of a decisive country like you have had under the past two terms of Barack Obama, then vote for Hillary. If you want to change the vitriol and division between races, socioeconomic and genders, then give Trump a chance and let’s get America back on track. This crap cannot continue. How disgusting that he would play the race card like this when he knows damn well he has made the exact same comments. That is what type of people the Clinton’s are. Please America, send them packing once and for all.
Former President Bill Clinton stumps for his wife in Orlando, FL. He says that Donald Trump’s promise to “Make America Great Again” is a racist codeword. “If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means,” Clinton said.
“I’m old enough to remember the good old days,” he said. “And they weren’t all that good in many ways.”
“That message — I’ll give you America great again — “If you’re a white southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you? It means I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago and I’ll move you back up the social totem pole and other people down,” Clinton said. “What Hillary wants to do is take the totem pole down and let us all go forward together!”
BUT WAIT … FROM 1991 COMES BILL CLINTON UTTERING THE SAME WORDS, I BELIEVE WE CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Hmmm, so is Bill Clinton a racist?
AND THEN IN 2008 BILL CLINTON CAMPAIGNED FOR HILLARY AGAINST BARCK OBAMA USING THE SAME WORDS, “ITS TIME TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
Donald Trump Heads to Louisiana Tomorrow While Barack Obama Golfs & Vacations and Hillary Clinton Rests
HOW SICK IS THIS THAT WE HAVE A TRAGEDY LIKE THE FLOODS IN LOUISIANA AND OBAMA GOLFS ON VACATION AS AMERICANS SUFFER …
Louisiana is suffering through the worst disaster since Hurricane Sandy as more than 20,000 people were displaced in the flooding, 13 people have died and many more are missing. Don’t worry, President Barack Obama does not seem to be phased by the terrible news as he is on his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard yucking it up with lifestyles of the rich and famous.
However, Fox News is reporting that Vice Presidential candidate Governor Mike Pence will be traveling with Donald Trump to Baton Rouge.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and running mate Mike Pence will visit flood-damaged areas of Baton Rouge, La. Friday.
Record flooding across Louisiana has killed at least 13 people. Over 85,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance, more than 30,000 have been rescued, and an estimated 40,000 homes have been damaged.
Trump addressed the flooding at a rally in Charlotte, N.C. Thursday night, calling Louisiana “a state that is very, very special to me.”
“Though words cannot express the sadness one feels at times like this,” Trump said, “I hope everyone in Louisiana knows that our country is praying for them, and standing with them to help them in these difficult hours.”
However, a spokesman for Louisiana’s governor said his office had not been contacted by the Trump campaign.
Richard Carbo, spokesman for Gov. John Bel Edwards, told the Associated Press Trump was welcome to Louisiana, “but not for a photo-op.” Instead, Carbo proposed Trump “consider volunteering or making a sizable donation to the LA Flood Relief Fund to help the victims of this storm.”
What a double standard we are witness too from the liberal MSM. Remember when the media ripped George W. Bush during Hurricane Katrina and they completely ignore the fact that Barack Obama has all but ignored the Louisiana flooding as he golf and refuses to cut his vacation short.
President George W. Bush was torn to shreds in 2005 by mainstream media commentators for his initial response to Hurricane Katrina – yet President Obama’s detached response to the recent Louisiana floods has been met with resounding silence from those same outlets.
“George Bush doesn’t care about black people” was the shocking charge by singer Kanye West about President Bush’s response to Katrina. West’s was a particularly blunt assessment, but echoed a growing narrative pushed by mainstream media outlets that Bush’s response was out of touch, inept and most of all, he didn’t care about people on the ground.
Much of the media coverage at the time not only criticized Bush for the difficulties the federal government faced in responding to the disaster, but also lambasted him for taking too long to return from vacation and to visit the site on the ground.
When he did return early from vacation, just two days after the disaster hit, he faced further criticism for flying over New Orleans on his way back to Washington D.C. before flying out to visit the victims of the tragedy.
