    Because we're all well accustomed to your faux-outrage.

    If this were someone at a TP event saying "Obama is a Muslim who was born in Kenya" you would have nothing to say.

    Secondly, I've already posted about Conservative bloggers painting OWS as an anti-semitic thing. With the same proof that the TP is racist. You're just taking this video from one of them and reposting it. Apparently the "anti-semitic" thing didn't stick, so now it's "Liberals are teaching our kids (to be anti-semitic)."

    Really? Then why was the woman fired?

    You're right... That's because even though such a belief is misguided, it isn't racial hatred, anti-Semitism or bigotry. Even if they did say something that was classify as bigotry or hatred, as long as they're not a school teacher, it wouldn't mean squat to me.

    I was the one who originally posted that video on this forum, and I'm sorry you can't come to grips with the daily examples of anti-Semitism at the OWS protests.

    You either support the kids and this teacher being fired, or you support the hatred and bigotry of this woman, and don't care who in the hell teaches our children... It's just that simple.

    Explain how a person's personal political, religious, and ideological views affect how they do their job?

    And if your only weak response is, "Explain why this person lost their job", then in weeks time or so, I'll ask YOU how come this person is filthy stinking rich from a law suit, then.

    That is a nice false dichotomy you have set up there. Personally, I find her views toward Jews reprehensible and pathetic. And yet on just that video alone I do not think there is enough to merit firing her for comments she made outside of the classroom. Unless she allowed her views to frequently seep into what she was teaching to her students, and I will readily admit that this is likely, the school district probably acted a little too hastily for my taste. Despite that, I have no real problem with the school district firing her given that they should have a clearer picture of her abilities as a teacher than we do.

    As long as we are discussing teachers that are making bigoted and hateful comments, when are you going to condemn Viki Knox for her comments?

    Not racial? So people think Obama was born in Kenya because....And anti-semitism is worse than islamophobia because....???




    I was the one who originally posted that video on this forum, and I'm sorry you can't come to grips with the daily examples of anti-Semitism at the OWS protests.
    I can come to grips with it. When Cons come to grips with examples of racism at TP protests. The proof is exactly the same. The only thing that's different is your political sympathy for one group.

    I don't care who posted it "on this forum" first. You only heard about it from Con blogs. Probably Breitbart or the MRC. I'd already seen this. BTW, one of the signs described as anti-semitic was held by a Jewish kid. From the PJ Tatler:

    aaa.jpg


    “It’s Yom Kippur: Banks should atone!” Hmmmm…why would the banks and bankers engage in a Jewish ritual practice (atonement on Yom Kippur) if they weren’t Jewish? Again, we return to the “Jewish bankers” theme.
    UPDATE: Turns out this particular sign is being held by a Jewish protester, so its intent was probably not meant to be anti-Semitic — though it could easily be misinterpreted, and as such was very ill-considered. The sign-holder is in no way visible in the photo, so their gender/age/religion/name was unknown to me. I did not identify the sign-holder in the caption nor depict them in a photo, and out of respect will continue refraining from doing so.
    The PJ Tatler More Anti-Semitism at Occupy Los Angeles

    As I said. Admit that racists come to TP events, and I'll gladly admit that some of the signs are anti-semitic. Since that won't happen....

    Are you just playing dumb, or are you really that out of touch?

    Trendy? I wouldn't know. But it would seem that parents might want to control who is educating their children in the same way they might want to control who gives them guitar or karate lessons. I am an advocate for giving people as much choice as possible. Actually, that proposition seems downright un-trendy these days.

    It makes two points actually. First point is who's teaching our kids. Second point is you libs want to turn a blind eye to who's teaching our kids or you endorse what they say.

    The facts are that you have no idea what this woman was teaching the children, since she was a substitute teacher probably not all that much. She should be judged on what she does in her class, not what YOU perceive she is doing. We don't live in Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia or the period in the U.S. when those on the left were perceived as communists.

    Do you actually want to live in a world where virtually everyone has a camera and produce videos and presented to your employer of some of your worst words?

    I think what this woman said was awful, however I think she should be judged by what she teaches the kids.

    What she says is what she thinks and who she is. The fact you defend her speaks volumes.Would you be OK with a KKK teacher as long as they didn't actually teach KKK doctrine? Somehow I doubt it but you give this freak lots of slack. Like I said, maybe you agree.
