Teacher Caught Giving Anti-Trump Lecture During 'Chemistry' Class, Gets Put on Leave
Utah science teacher filmed imploding with hate-filled rant on 'literal moron' Trump
A teacher has been placed on administrative leave after she was caught lecturing her "chemistry" class about her hatred for President Donald Trump and his supporters.
The Utah teacher was secretly filmed by a student in Alpine School District’s Lehi High School while ranting to the class about "literal moron" Trump.
The outburst reportedly started as a casual conversation that quickly escalated into a hate-filled rant before the class.
Video shows the teacher becoming increasingly agitated as she proceeds to express her hatred for Trump while taunting the students to report her rant to school administrators.
One student can be heard asking the teacher if she’s a liberal.
Another also pipes in, “This is a chemistry class!”
"I hate Donald Trump!" the teacher blasts to her class.
"I’m gonna say it," she continues.
"I don’t care what y’all think. Trump sucks!"
"He is a sexual predator, he is a literal moron.
"Go tattle on me to the freakin’ admins, they don’t give a crap.”
She called the students “rude” for not agreeing with her radical talking points and asked if they, or their parents, listen to Fox News.
"Turn off the Fox News," she told them.
"Do your parents listen to Fox News?
"This is my classroom and if you guys are going to put me at risk you’re going to hear about it,” she said.
"Because I have to be here," she bemoaned.
"I don’t have to be happy about the fact that there’s kids coming in here, with their variants that could possibly get me or my family sick. That’s rude.
"And I’m not going to pretend like it’s not. So don’t ask me to.”
Within her four-minute-long rant, which included students informally peppering her with questions, the teacher encouraged students to ignore their parents because the high schoolers are, according to this teacher, smarter than their parents.
"Most of y’alls parents are dumber than you," she declared.
"I’m going to say that out loud.”
"My parents are freaking dumb,” she continued.
"Okay, and the minute I figured that out, the world opens up.
"You don’t have to do everything your parents say.
"And you don’t have to believe everything your parents believe.
"Because most likely, you’re smarter than them.”
Near the end of her rant, the teacher told students to remain silent about their conservative beliefs in the classroom.
She told students that they must accept climate change and not be a “homophobe” if they do not wish to be made fun of by the teacher.
"You can believe what you want to believe, but keep it quiet in here because I’m probably going to make fun of you,” she said.
"I’ll just say this, here are the topics that you’ll probably want to avoid in this class.
"Politics, which you went into — you asked me.
"If you don’t believe in climate change, get the hell out …
"That’s pathetic that you think that.
"You’re the problem with the world. Okay?”
"If you’re a homophobe, get out.
"Because I’m the [Gay Straight Alliance] faculty advisor.
"I love gay people, all the LGBTQIA plus mother f*****s.
"If you don’t like it. Get out,” the teacher continued.
"If I hear you say a d**n word against any of them, I will open a can, and I will make your life a living h**l.
"And they know it," she warned.
"If you give shiz to any LGBTQ kid in the school, I will hear about it, and you will be in trouble.”
Alpine School District issued a statement condemning the teacher’s behavior.
The district also announced that she had been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.
"We became aware late this afternoon of an incident that took place in one of our high school classrooms,” the school district said.
"An immediate investigation ensued.
"The employee has been put on administrative leave pending a thorough investigation.
"This behavior is inappropriate, not reflective of the professional conduct and decorum we expect of our teachers, and will not be tolerated.”
Within 24 hours, the district updated its statement to reflect that the teacher is no longer an employee at the school.
It’s unclear whether the teacher was fired or resigned.
“Although the details of a personnel investigation are confidential, the teacher involved is no longer an employee of Alpine School District,” the district said.
