The South Carolina cop story has been all the rage lately. We realize that lots of reasonable turtle riders think the cop should be fired, and that’s fine. We don’t all have to agree. We’ve gotten a shit ton of hate mail about it, but that’s what you do when you offer an opinion that not everyone agrees with. Regardless, I think we can all agree it’s not the teacher’s fault, right? Oh wait, what’s that? You’re telling me RBG and the hippie patrol is blaming the African-American teacher?
Hey teachers – a man who led an illegal blockade of Kelley Square and jumped on a tractor trailer truck to scare the shit out of the driver
a man who brags about getting unemployment for two years straight while spending money freely
a man who will skullfuck your parents if he doesn’t agree with your opinion
a man who you paid $1,500 in taxes to go to a poetry slam in Oakland
A man whose general philosophy in life is, “fuck everyone who is successful because I am a 40 year old slob who can’t get his shit together so I protest how unfair life is instead”
This man just told you how to do your job. You know what’s funny? He has more influence than you. This man got paychecks from Mosaic and speaks at City Council meetings. He affects policy. Let that sink in.
I think we can all agree that the no matter what you think of the cop, this one isn’t on the teacher right? How many students do high school teachers see every day? Like 100? And they’re supposed to magically know who is having a bad day and who isn’t? And then they’re supposed to take that information and use it to decide who to enforce rules on. If you’re having a bad day and you’re down in the dumps, then rules don’t apply to you until you’re feeling better. Makes sense!!!
Like I said, a lot of people we know and respect think the cop was in the wrong. Everyone here disagrees with that, but that’s fine. We don’t all have to agree all the time. People didn’t like our takes on Major Godin at North High or about our recent blog on the appropriateness of using blackface on Halloween.
We’re still friends though. Because in America it’s OK if we agree to disagree. That’s what separates us from the hippies. CNN anchor Don Lemon is a frequent target of the hippies because he’s a black man who isn’t nearly belligerent enough to gain the hippies’ approval. With the SC story his take was – let’s wait until all the facts came out. For that he’s being branded as an Uncle Tom and the hippies are demanding that he be fired:
Hey hippies – this is what fascism looks like. We don’t agree with you, therefore you can’t be on the air. Despite the fact that Don Lemon is clearly a left-leaning anchor who doesn’t want to rush to judgement, it’s not good enough.
P.S. I almost feel bad for how dumb RGB can be sometimes. Check this out:
HAHAHAHHA. This poor, poor guy. District 4 is Sarai Rivera’s district. We joke all the time about how Kevin Ksen is gonna load up the rape van, give bums donuts, and have them vote Sarai. Because it’s generally assumed that a fake pastor like Sarai Rivera has to use deceit to get elected. That obviously went way above poor RGB’s head, and now he wants us investigated for voter fraud. Pray for RGB.
