Teacher fired for calling a spade a spade

A social media outburst has reared its ugly head again, this time in a Facebook thread centered around Nike’s new Colin Kaepernick-narrated commercial titled, “Dream Crazy.”

Several graduates of Slidell High School in Slidell, La. were discussing the ad, according to the Advocate, when a teacher at the high school chimed in with a comment on the original post.

“They don’t have to live in that country,” Valerie Scogin’s comment started, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “They could go back, but it was their own people selling them into slavery to begin with and tearing (sic) them even worse in those countries of origin.”

    all she did what the ad said “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.”

  2. Fired for telling the truth.

      Worse. Fired for expressing an opinion. Pretty sure there’s supposed to be some protections for that, but even if not, says a lot about who did the firing. But we all know that school administrations are the bastion of political correctness.

    The moral?…..don’t ever, ever tell the truth when you are employed within the leftist school system anywhere in this country….there is no room for anything beyond left wing ideology and socialism….God forbid the truth about past events should ever be revealed….

    I guess real and true history does not matter in the PC world; only what we think is correct not what really happened!

      Think of the hissy fit the proggies would have thrown if she had pointed out that it goes on today, with the moslems being the culprits.

    She believed in something and lost everything.

    Freedom of speech for some, but not for others

    math teachers are over rated, now have room for a how to be transsexual 101 class.

  7. NewVegasBadger says:

    In a time of universal deceit, telling the Truth IS a revolutionary act (and will not be tolerated). Orwell was right.

  8. cato1776 says:

    History has been re-written by progressive/socialists, what was once truth, is no longer.
    The real, “old” truth will get you labeled and fired.

  9. singlestack says:

    She committed the unforgivable sin of telling the truth.

  10. Westcoastdeplorable says:

    What about freedom of speech? Getting offended by the truth is bullshit and it’s high time more people expressed their real thoughts instead of “going along to get along”.

    Can anyone, anywhere explain to my why Nike stock continues to climb after running this fucked up commercial?

    As a Public School Teacher now thank God Retired. I knew from the get go that my Civil Rights ended when I pulled into the School Parking Lot.

If your comment 'disappears', don't trip - it went to my trash folder and I will restore it when I moderate.
