Let us preface this by saying, we called the school prior to publishing this article. While they refused to comment on the situation, they did confirm the occurrence.
Kids at a Texas High School, yes Texas, acted out a teacher-approved skit pretending to assassinate President-elect Donald Trump with a gun. One kid used an iPhone app to create the sound of the gun, while the other student, pretending to be Donald Trump, fell to the ground acting to be dead.
Some parents were understandably frustrated and angry. Shocker. It’s Texas. Parents visited the school to make light of what had occurred and the boards response infuriated them even more. ISD spokesman Barry Perez made a statement saying that all is well now and the teacher said “sorry.”
I must remind you that just a little while ago, a kindergartner was suspended for making a pop tart into the shape of a gun. Additionally kids aren’t even allowed on school grounds with water guns let alone pretending to shoot a president dead in class. But it’s ok, because the teacher said she was “sorry.”
Some of the parents chimed in:
“Honestly I have run out of words to describe how angry I am and how shocked I am that they’re still in school today,” Melinda Bean said.
Although school officials claim that the students changed their script after the teacher approved it and that she didn’t condone the violence, she still allowed them to perform their skit after hearing the self-explanatory title The Assassination of Donald Trump.
“I don’t understand how the teacher can repeat an apology and be right there back at work on Monday morning,” Harold Bean said. “Though we understand she is apologetic, it does not make the situation right. Pardon my language but I think that it’s a bunch of B.S. if they’re going to tell you the kids were stopped.”
This unfortunately is not the only occurrence like this. A whole school district in San Francisco has adopted a curriculum entitled “How Trump Won The Election.” The teacher union approved this curriculum that teaches a “Donald Trump is a racist who pandered to a racist white population.”
I let you all steam over this for a while.
