Teacher Suspended After Making Disturbing Comments About The Obamas

A high school social studies teacher in West Virginia made some social media posts that came to the attention of her employer. She's been suspended and is facing disciplinary action for making political remarks that some deem offensive and racist.

Mary Durstein is a Republican and runs the Young Republican's Club at Huntington High School. Students screen-grabbed some of the teachers posts and sent it to the principal, and now the teacher is in hot water.

The teacher, under the user name 'pigpen63', sent some anti-Muslim, anti-Obama and anti-Black Lives Matter movement comments. She also vocally supported the most unpopular candidate to ever win an election: President Elect Donald Trump.

In a post about Muslims, Durstein wrote, "Who cares if we offend Muslims at least they keep their heads on tact [sic]. They're the enemy!"

President Barack Obama once said a young black male who was shot dead in a scuffle, "Could have been my son." Durstein has turned that around, commenting on an article about four black teens who held a special needs white child hostage while they tortured him. The teacher commented, "could have been Obama’s children."

Superintendent Bill Smith condemned the teacher's comments and posts. He's planned a meeting with the teacher and her lawyer, and she may face disciplinary actions or termination for her online activity.
