    I disagree. Do I think they Israelites were prey, hardly. Perhaps it was a poor metaphor. But still, why would chaperones not move kids away from a threatening group? Why even allow them to approach idiots looking for a fight? I once caught two girls fighting in the school parking lot. I didn’t allow it to continue, I intervened and stopped it. Why did no chaperones intervene?

    Standing in front of an elderly man smirking, the tomahawk chops, the jeering ...

    It’s typical. Don’t like Elle’s post so let’s insult her ability to do her job. You know nothing about me yet you make a judgement about my teaching abilities. You and PT go directly to the personal insults then fault me when I stand up to you. I have had differing opinions with Texas and NOLA, and yet they can carry on a discussion with me without insulting my teaching abilities. In fact, we can have discussions without insults. But yet you two find it necessary to insinuate that I can’t teach and I’ve even received two threats from a right winger here. What I saw was a kid smirking st an elderly Native American. What I saw were his classmates laughing and jeering with him. The old man was in no way aggressive. What I saw was defiance. And what I saw was poor supervision by school chaperones. You don’t have to agree with me, you don’t have to like me, and you can make all the insults your keyboard can type out. But you are crossing a line when you insult my ability to do my job. I’m tired of that being the go to insult.

    There is a HUGE DIFFERENCE between a school field trip to a political rally and a student going to a political rally. And I’m not criticizing the students but rather the school for putting kids in the situation. And chill , I’m not throwing them under a bus. You guys act like a post on this message Board is the end all of these kids. And I never once defended the Israelites who were hurling insults. They were wrong. But as a chaperone of students the faculty of Covington should have moved the kids away from that group. But they allowed and condoned it. I don’t pretend their behavior caused it. But I do realize their behavior was wrong. Nathan Phillips states that the Israelite group was insulting the students, so I fail to see lying.

    Ahhh, and there it is. You’ve stooped to PT’s talking point that says because I have an opinion that I can’t possible be a good educator. My ability to do my job is in no way determined by my political opinion. Because I teach Native American History I know exactly what disrespect of indiginious people looks like. And I saw that disrespect. I’m not ignoring facts but rather I’m seeing facts that you refuse to acknowledge.

    So it’s ok for you to insult MY students but it’s not ok for me to say the Covington students behavior was unacceptable? You’ve taken a page from Trump and are simply being a first class hypocrite.

    First Emma Gonzales and David Hogg weren’t in a chill field trip. They organized marches apart from their school. And yes people who criticize kids who were victims of a school shooting, kids who had to attend funeral after funeral of their murdered classmates are about as low as you can get. That said, I’ve not threatened the Covington students nor Doxxed them. I’ve merely said their behavior was disgusting. And the school was responsible for their actions. The chaperones did nothing to stop the kids from smirking and jeering at an elderly Native American.

    If you think for one second that I’ll STHU because you said so well you need your head examined. And respect? Your opinion would have to matter to me for me to even care. Ive watched the videos, I’ve read witness statements. The school students were not chaperoned properly and it showed. I never said the students were solely at fault. But actually working with students of this age I understand behaviors that others may not. When you take a group of students anywhere you should constantly be alert for potential problems. But Covington has a history of racism and bullying. Read student accounts. Sounds like a culture problem. I’m not bitter about the situation. It was stupid and preventable by the school. You just want to label me because I’m not defending a group you’ve deemed as innocent.

    I’ll tell you where my perspective comes from. It comes from being an educator who has taken students on a field trip. First, with this political climate, I’d have never taken students to a political march. I realize that being a faith based school that this issue could be important to them; however, they could have organized a march in their own town. This would have been a much better educational experience for the students. Second, as a chaperone I would never have let my students approach a group yelling derogatory comments as Covington’s chaperones allowed. Then to make it worse they allowed the students to counter by their own chants. One student even removed his shirt while yelling. I’d have taken my students away from that situation rather than thrust them into it. This was a preventable situation had the school behaved appropriately. But instead they allowed students to behave in a disrespectful fashion. That speaks in a loud volume to the culture at Covington.

    I’m saying a woman didn’t get pregnant on her own. There was a male sperm donor. No one seems to acknowledge that when condemning abortion. All the blame is cast on the female. If a woman gets pregnant and the father doesn’t want to support the child, then the burden of proof falls to her as well as the expense. And Republicans march around like they give a **** about babies but support every policy that harms children. I haven’t seen one self proclaimed pro life politician do jack about kids getting massacred with guns. Heck when it comes right down to it, have you seen them even attempt to abolish abortion? NO, then they wouldn’t have that tool to manipulate voters into voting against their own interests.

    You are so damn clueless. You support a party that claims to be pro life yet puts children in cages, attempts to strip people of healthcare, despises programs that feed the hungry and has no regard for life outside the womb. If you’re so concerned about abortion then start by considering the reasons abortion is chosen. Your party will tell a woman she cannot have an abortion but put her rapist in the senate, the White House or the Supreme Court. Your party will tell a woman she has to be responsible for the life she created them work in direct opposition to her earning a living wage to support a child. Your party believes healthcare is a privilege and not a right. You can’t have an abortion and you can’t have healthcare for your child. Oh and forget about feeding that hungry child. They should work for their own food. You’re vipers and hypocrites. You want to prevent unwanted pregnancies and abortion, teach your gender to keep their dick in their pants because males are responsible for 100% of unwanted pregnancies.

    Exactly what did Elle try to make it? You want to defend a male who went to march in support of the government controlling women’s bodies smugly smirking with his MAGA hat at a NA Vietnam Vet while his friends laugh and cheer be my guest. But please don’t sell him as a victim.
