‘She was trying to put us black kids down’: Sub resigns after class says she spread MLK conspiracy theory

(Summary) A substitute fifth-grade teacher in North Carolina berated a black student for his clothing and made other outlandish remarks — invoking President Trump and religion before falsely telling students the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. committed suicide.

IndieDems Comment:

Question of the day: if Donald Trump can base his entire illegal immigration policy on a pack of bald-faced lies and talk about Hispanic migrants the way Hitler talked about the Jews; make 7,000 other false or misleading statements during his two years as President; run an election campaign based on a flagrant appeal to race-mongering; regularly use ethnic slurs in his public utterances; incite his followers to violence—

And still be considered by the Republican Party as fit to be President and still be considered a good Christian by the Christian leaders who invited him to be the main speaker at a ceremony observing the national day of prayer,

why would it surprise anyone that one of his yahoo followers, on duty as a substitute teacher, would use her platform to speak flagrant racism and to tell lies about Martin Luther King?

Give the teacher A+ for honesty: she revealed herself as a pluperfect example of what it really means to be a Republican and a Christian in current America. These Republicans/Christians have taken us back before the days of the Civil Rights revolution of the 1960s, back to the darkest days of segregation when the KKK was considered a mainstream movement whose members were the earthly servants of Jesus Christ.

The teacher was simply reflecting the mentality of Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Brett Kavanaugh, and every elected Republican. Why was she fired while these other racists still hold office?
