Teacher Compares Student Trump Supporters To Nazis- Ends Up Regreting It

Ever since the 2016 presidential election, American society has been fracturing over issues of partisanship, bias and the growing influence of white supremacist forces in everyday society. The political tensions have repeatedly spilled over into more and more professions. A controversial math teacher from River Ridge High School is the latest victim of the divisive struggle for America’s political heart.

The unnamed teacher was recently caught on camera in a tight situation after denigrating any American who wore President Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ (MAGA) caps, telling students: “Just like you cannot wear a swastika to school, you cannot wear Make America Great Again like that," and comparing MAGA accessories to relics from Nazi Germany. After a video and recording of the teacher’s comments was uploaded online, the young teacher found herself being harassed and abused by thousands of complete strangers, diehard Trump fans and MAGA enthusiasts.  
 
Now, the unnamed teacher has been hit with harsher punishment, with River Ridge High School terminating her employment. The Independent Journal Review has since secured a copy of her termination letter, which reads:

“The letter also informs that the school is searching for an experienced educator to teach these classes for the rest of the school year. We are committed to providing your child with the best education possible to prepare them for future success.”

The swift dismissal of the unnamed teacher has triggered uncertainty in the teaching ranks at River Ridge High School.  As tension mounts, a spokesperson for the Cherokee County School District confirmed that the “[termination] letter was approved by the Superintendent of Schools and sent by the Principal to the parents of all students in classes taught by the teacher named in it.”

Unsurprisingly, the response from online commenters to this issue has been deeply divided. One commenter on the Independent Journal Review (IJR), George E. Klump, penned a lengthy post to explain why the teacher shouldn’t be employed, writing: “She shouldn't be teaching in any position.  The kind of remarks she is reported to have made are a dead giveaway about her real thoughts.  One more far left liberal we do not need in the teaching profession.  In addition the inappropriateness of the remark is demonstrated by the fact that this was a math class, not political science which, normally, is not taught in high school anyway.”  

Another IJR user, I. Chin, added further fuel to the political fire after writing: “Wonder what uproar would result if students wore BLM, rainbow shirts, or Hillary wear (yes, they like to practice irony) to class. I'd say nothing. Wear a shirt supporting our armed forces, the flag, or anything they object to and suddenly it's a swastika. Maybe someone should wear a genuine swastika, in it's original, non-Nazified form. It originated is a Hindu / Buddhist religious symbol and is interpreted in American Indian religious symbiology as "whirling logs."

As time passes, it becomes clear that the bulk of online commenters are against the unidentified teacher and her damaging views.
