This is Oceanside Middle School Principal (Rockland, ME) Bill Gifford.
He’s an asshole who doesn’t understand that the Internet isn’t his diary and decided to post on his wide open Facebook page that Donald Trump was not his President, that he had been reported to the superintendent for his incendiary posts, and that the people who had an issue with this were “asswipes.”
He accused Trump supporters of having small dicks.
And over the summer he called Trump supporters “monkeys,” “ignorant fuckers,” and “goon squads,” while warning them that the gloves were off if they fucked with him (whatever that means).
Rockland and Rockport Maine are about 40% Trump supporters, so a number of kids under his care are likely to be lumped in with the “goon squads,” “asswipes,” “ignorant fuckers,” and “small dicks.” But it’s OK because after some uproar he issued an official apology and all is forgiven.
“My mistake was to include profanity.”
No asshole, your mistake was showing the people you serve that you hate them and look down upon them because they don’t subscribe to your political ideology. That’s the REAL problem here. The language you were dumb enough to use on social media is just disqualifying for use an educator.
Now imagine if he had said those sorts of things about Obama or Kamala Harris. Would this apology be enough? Probably not. But that’s because it’s OK to call people little dicked monkeys, as long as you’re doing so in the name of woke politics.
