Once again we have another example of another socialist teacher that displays hatred for our country in the classroom by stomping on the American flag for all his students to see! And to top it off, he did this not just once…but three different times at that! – Indoctrination 101 indeed!

Here’s the report…this is via wistv:

CHAPIN, SC (WIS) –

At least one parent calls the actions of a Chapin High School English teacher disrespectful and unpatriotic.

The Lexington-Richland District 5 teacher is accused of throwing down the American flag and stomping on it in front of his honors English classes.

When Michael Copeland overheard his teenager talking about what her honors II English teacher did with the flag in their classroom, he pressed for details.

“He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, ‘What does this represent,’ and everybody said, ‘Christianity,'” said Copeland.

“Then he proceeds to take down the American flag, and said, ‘This is a symbol, but it’s only a piece of cloth. It doesn’t mean anything,’ and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly.”

“I asked what was he trying to get, the point across? And she said, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, his explanation was there would be no consequences, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t mean anything.”

But there are consequences.

“Our superintendent served in the military, I served in the military for 20 years, our flag is a symbol of our freedom, and so many people have fought and died for that liberty, and so we take this action very seriously,” said Mark Bounds, a spokesperson for Lexington-Richland 5.

The lesson was repeated in three classes that day, prompting a full investigation. After an unrelated incident at Dutch Fork where a teacher was suspended for a political sign in her room, officials say teachers know better.

“There is a code of ethics for teachers that talks about professional conduct, and then we tell our teachers that their personal opinion is their personal opinion and shouldn’t be brought into the classroom, and so we caution them all the time,” said Bounds.

Copeland believes telling students the 50 stars symbolize the 50 states, the red and white stripes, symbolize the original 13 colonies might have been a better way.

“He totally ignored what I consider what would have been an excellent teaching point to just simply throw the flag down and show no respect to it at all and to the people that it means a whole lot to,” said Copeland.

The class was told they’d have a permanent replacement for their teacher for the remainder of the year. District officials say the investigation continues.

Anyone think Scott Compton will be relieved of his teaching duties permanently, not just in this school, but in all schools across this land?

      I bet you’re sentiments will be shared by others too. – It’s a despicable disgrace what we have that are teaching the kids today.

      Btw…To the teachers out there that aren’t leftist-loon nutcases like the America hating bastid is….I’m not talking about all of you.

      • You think doing what this scumbag did in front of his students is free speech and called for…really?

        • As inappropriate as it is..its still free speech. One of the things about enjoying free speech is having to tolerate speech you disagree with.

            Free speech without restraint? sounds good to me… that means racial slurs and homosexual slurs are now appropriate for public consumption… right? How about saying “bomb” at the airport or fire in a theater? Hmmmmmmm… I guess you and your faggot ass PC liberal comrades need to man up for the strict adherence to the 1st amendment.. LOL this should be fun. Everyone gets to be offended.. equally… right?

          • Vinnie..have you considered therapy? You seem to have some deep seated anger issues and I doubt the source of that pain has anything to do with politics..you just project it thusly because you need an outlet for it..unfortunately, if you do not resolve your anger, it will eat you up in the end.

    • I am sure Stalin thought the same way about fellow countrymen who disagreed with him.

      (0)
      • LOL someone like you would use Stalin as a reference…ironically he and other meglamaniacs in history like Hitler and Mao disarmed thier citizens before taking all their freedoms away… like your Messiah Obama and the Marxist in our government ( democrats and Rinos ) seek to do now.

        I’m just exercising my 1st Amendment rights while I still can… but let me guess you only approve of American flag stomping.. how about a Mexican flag or Chinese, etc…? Is that okay too or would it be akin to yelling fire in a crowded theater?

        (1)
        • “Someone like me”?
          That’s an ASSumption. I voted for Gary Johnson..if I did not vote for Obama, he cannot very well be my “messiah”, can he? Just because I call out of the silly rhetoric here, you ASSume I am a “libtard”

          At any rate, I think this teacher should lose his job, what he did was very lame..but still at the end of the day..it was an act of free speech. I approve of free speech even if I do not approve of whats being said.

          I made tghe Stalin reference because opf ll the talk of purges and violence against who some of posters here disagree with

  3. Hi bigtimer,I noticed this was reported by a tv station in Columbia,SC,home of the U.S.Army’s Ft.Jackson,so I imagine that this POS libturd will be walking around looking over his shoulder from now on,until he leaves town.

    Thanks for posting story,back in the day,if that happened in my daughter’s class,I would have been arrested for kicking his ass.

    • Howdy oldredleg…

      Back in the day not only would he have had his ass kicked, he would’ve or should’ve been tar and feathered. – Therefore he wouldn’t even have given a second thought to do what the bastid did.

      Lawdy…I’ve had my fill of watching this country go into self-destruction mode! And at a fast pace too…will it ever end?

    Notice how the Leftists, since the re-election of our Dear Empty Chair, have come out of the woodworks to openly and brazenly express their contempt for America? They’ve always been somewhat open about it I suppose, but it was more hidden in the past. But now they know the majority of the country supports, in some fashion, our new trend toward complete socialism and they’re going for the national jugular!

    Has anyone else noticed that since November there has been an even swifter slide into socialism? People don’t even try to hide their Communist sympathies now!? I fear it’s going to get worse, and that many of the American ideas we took for granted (e.g., hard work ethic, capitalism, freedom from government intervention) will be openly challenged by average people everywhere – and not merely the talking heads of the MSM.

    The only good news is that eventually the government freebies will run dry, and people will get tired of government intervention in every part of their private lives (such as occurred in Russia). People can only take so much. But when this will occur is anyone’s guess, and we may have to suffer a long winter, so to speak, under the tyranny of the do-gooders in Washington before anything’s done about it.

    If Thomas Jefferson were to see our times, I think he would be shocked and dismayed as to the size of our current federal government – and probably wonder why a violent revolution had not already occurred.

  6. Friends, I’m not an American. But I think if “educators” are going to teach American children about their flag they should just get them to watch this eloquent, heartfelt love letter to it from a patriotic son of your soil.

            You have always been pathetic…you still are.

            Btw…you have expressed your love for the First Amendment here time and again, don’t you think that’s exactly what others are and have done here as well?

    Why doesn’t a background check wead out these perps? We trust schools to educate our most precious commodity. I don’t think turning them into good little commies should be part of that teaching.

    And some wonder why our kids can’t even read their own diplomas, well, that is if they even “graduate” at all.

    Home school or private school or you’ll have a very difficult time de-programming your kids.

    And for GODS sake don’t let them attend a government funded college.

    Public schools X 100

      Despicable disgrace at that!

      Btw…if you’re still around after I post this, I’ll ask ya once again if you happen to know what happened to Bluto. He hasn’t been here in a few weeks. – Just hoping he’s okay.

      Thanks…if ya know.

      (0)
      • BT,

        I’ve asked the same question regarding Bluto a couple of times… haven’t seen a post from him. Since he was a regular here and posted every single night, possibly AWD sent him an email making sure he is OK!

        The elections probably just got him a little depressed as it did me… I’m sure he will be back soon.

        (0)
        • I sure hope so…as he had been here after the election now and then, more so before he just disappeared. If AWD knows, I do hope he lets us know too. – Truly worried…then again, at times I’m too much of a worry-wart.

          Thanks so much for the reply…much appreciated Paul.

    I teach with some of these idiots. A lot of this nonsense is the “shock and awe” effect. I don’t know what it is about HS teachers, but it brings out the most liberal out of all the teachers I know.

    I taught at a school a few years back with a creepy teacher everybody just loved, thought he was the greatest. He used this liberal type of crap to engage, enlighten his students, etc. etc. He is currently doing 7-12 in a prison in Florida for molesting male students. There’s your “shock and awe:, by the way, he was teacher of the year when he taught at my school. So there you go…..

  20. Yes, the Constitution protects any lefty who wants to dishonor the national flag. However, it does not protect government employees who dishonor the national flag in front of their captive and impressionable students. Given union control of our schools, I am confident that the teacher now has a cautionary letter in his HR file.

          • like the westboro clan, this teacher is an asshole. And doing this in a school was extremely poor judgement on his part and he should lose his job as a result.

            I am reacting mostly to the posters who are calling for violence and other extreme measures just because they find his speech to be offensive. I think thats contrary to what the FF’s envisioned.
