    Yes, this is real. Apparently kids in costumes saying trick or treat are Satanic socialists. Has to be exhausting to be this angry all the time.

    I have a co-worker (he's a BSABSVR centrist) try to use this as an example of Californiaing Texas. I asked him how a law passed by the Republican legislature had anything to do with California. He has not responded.

    Correct, except they'll look for a way that it was your fault.

    Hey now, so do cops. They keep the small, independent doughnut shops with "We Love and Support our Local Police Department" window signage going.

    Jeez, sorry I popped the "teacher as martyr" bubble. I didn't know it was such a touchy subject.

    My point is if you actually talked to teachers from time to time you wouldn't make such a ridiculous statement. Hell if you just read the news you would know the statement was stupid...teachers and school boards are being threatened almost every day even here. Open your eyes...

    The difference between teachers and cops is, teachers have almost zero power and deserve almost none of it. You may not like it but the larger than small amount of bad cops that do evil things are going to shine a light on every cop because they do have power over us. What is the worst that happens if a teacher screws up? What is the worst that happens if a cop screws up?

    Teachers aren't martyrs anymore than cops are. They just havent earned the disrespect they get.

    What a bumble-cluster ...

    Gina Peddy, the Carroll school district’s executive director of curriculum and instruction, made the comment Friday afternoon during a training session on which books teachers can have in classroom libraries. The training came four days after the Carroll school board, responding to a parent’s complaint, voted to reprimand a fourth grade teacher who had kept an anti-racism book in her classroom.

    A Carroll staff member secretly recorded the Friday training and shared the audio with NBC News.

    “Just try to remember the concepts of [House Bill] 3979,” Peddy said in the recording, referring to a new Texas law that requires teachers to present multiple perspectives when discussing “widely debated and currently controversial” issues. “And make sure that if you have a book on the Holocaust,” Peddy continued, “that you have one that has an opposing, that has other perspectives.”

    “How do you oppose the Holocaust?” one teacher said in response.

    “Believe me,” Peddy said. “That’s come up.”

    I don't know Ms. Peddy, no idea about her or her views, but that NBC story makes her almost a sympathetic figure as she's the messenger with a crap message to bring.


    No author of repute has written an "opposing view" as there is no opposing view to "genocide is wrong".
