Parents in a Wyoming school district are outraged that an answer on a multiple choice test included this option: “Shooting at Trump.”
The first question on a quiz posted online by a Jackson Hole High School teacher asked what the occasion was in which “Napoleon has the gun fired.”
“He was shooting at Trump” is listed as the first choice of four, according to the quiz.
Angry parents complained to Teton County school district officials, and the quiz has been taken down.
“I had to read it two times,” parent Jim McCollum said, according to the Jackson Hole News and Guide. “I was like, ‘Are you kidding me?'”
District officials said they learned about the quiz Thursday and called the Trump answer “inappropriate.” They are now “investigating and verifying the information.”
- UNLV professor Tessa Winkelmann: “Right when he got elected, I told my classes..Other people will die because of this.”
- He’s threatened to declare violence against North Korea and other places. So far all he’s done is to encourage violence.”
Las Vegas Review Journal reports:
Assistant professor Tessa Winkelmann made comments to her History 407 class Thursday afternoon that put some of the blame for Sunday’s shooting on Trump. Just four days earlier, a gunman killed 58 people and wounded 489 at a country music festival on the Strip.
“Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die,” Winkelmann says in the video obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Other people will die because of this.”
A student in the class was “dumbfounded” by Winkelmann’s comments and found them “appalling.” The student wished to remain anonymous for fear of retribution.
“He’s threatened to declare violence against North Korea and other places,” Winkelmann says in the video. “And words, especially if they’re coming from someone who is the president, have consequences. … I don’t know that these events would have inevitably happened whether or not he got elected, but he has rhetorical powers every president has to encourage or to discourage (violence). So far all he’s done is to encourage violence.”
The student said Winkelmann’s comments polarized the classroom, and groups of students began shouting at one another.
Music teacher ‘gave thousands of kids flutes contaminated with his SEMEN’ at schools across California
Authorities say global music programme director may have sent soiled instruments to kids for them to paint and send to needy children.
The unnamed teacher has been arrested and is being questioned amid wider allegations of sexual misconduct.
Authorities in California say the flutes, which are painted by US pupils before being sent to needy children across the world, could have ended up in as many as 13 districts across the south of the state.
Letters sent home to parents said the teacher, described as an “independent contractor”, led the Flutes Across The World programme for fifth grade children aged 10 to 11.
Superintendent Mark Johnson, the head of Fountain Valley School District, said the instruments “were potentially contaminated with bodily fluids” and called on parents to hand them in to police.
“You have to read in between the lines, and most likely it’s not sweat,” one parent said.
A dad in Los Angeles told NBC News: “It’s disgusting, it’s unreal, you can’t even really fathom it. It makes me sick to my stomach”.
- Teacher Preston Smith to erect a 6-foot-tall metal pentagram which features the captions: “In Satan We Trust,” “One Nation under Antichrist” and “May the Children Hail Satan.”
- Pastor Mark Boykin: “It’s evil, it’s the essence of evil. I will take the responsibility for taking the sledgehammer and knocking it down”
( Daily Wire ) A Florida school teacher is planning on setting up a Satanic display that specifically calls children to “Hail Satan” next to a Christmas display in December.
Preston Smith, a middle school language arts teacher, said he intends to erect a 6-foot-tall metal pentagram that weighs 300-pounds which features the captions: “In Satan We Trust,” “One Nation under Antichrist” and “May the Children Hail Satan.”
“We can’t say no to this, as offensive as it is. Our lawyers said whatever you do, don’t do that. Because it will be an expensive lawsuit,” said Jeremy Rodgers, Boca Raton Deputy Mayor, told CBS 12 on Tuesday.
Pastor Mark Boykin, Senior Pastor at Church of All Nations, said he will not sit by and watch someone promote evil during a time that is sacred to Christians.
“It’s evil, it’s the essence of evil. I will take the responsibility for taking the sledgehammer and knocking it down,” Boykin said.
Two Victory & Praise Christian Academy football players were kicked off the team for protesting during the national anthem at a game Friday night.
Cedric Ingram-Lewis raised his fist while cousin Larry McCullough knelt during the anthem ahead of the team’s game against Providence Classical.
After the anthem ended, head coach Ronnie Mitchem instructed them to take off their uniforms and kicked them off the team. Mitchem is a former Marine and pastor who started the church-based football program in Crosby six years ago.
Ingram-Lewis, a sophomore, said the topic of protesting had come up in the locker room before and his cousin McCullough, a senior, even announced he would kneel via social media. The coach had told players he did not want anyone to kneel, citing his service in the military.
“He told us that disrespect will not be tolerated,” said Ingram-Lewis, one of the booted players. “He told us to take off our uniform and leave it there.”
