Public Schools in Action: Teacher Yells At Student, Says It's a Criminal Offense to Criticize Obama
Paul Joseph Watson
An audio recording of an exchange between a teacher and a student at North Rowan High School in North Carolina serves as a reminder that the school system is becoming a training ground for teaching kids to be subservient to the state while indoctrinating them into thinking that the First Amendment doesn’t exist.
The clip features a conversation in which teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely tells students that it is a criminal offense to criticize Barack Obama and that they could be “arrested” for doing so.
The discussion centers around a story about Mitt Romney bullying a kid five decades ago. A student responds by pointing out that Obama admits in his own book, Dreams from My Father, that he also bullied a girl when he was in school, and that both Obama and Romney are “just men.”
Dixon-Neely then begins yelling about how “disrespecting the President” is an arrestable offense.
"Let me tell you something, you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom," she says, adding, "Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush? Do you realize you are not supposed to slander the president?"
The student correctly dispels Dixon-Neely’s nonsense by pointing out that the First Amendment permits the most vigorous criticism of the President.
"You would have to say some pretty f'd up crap about him to be arrested," says the student. "They cannot take away your right to have your opinion "¦ They can't take that away unless you threaten the president."
When the student refuses to be intimidated into agreeing with the teacher, Dixon-Neely states, “OK, do I have to get my cane?”
“As a social studies teacher, I cannot allow you to slander any President,” she adds.
According to Breitbart News, “The student had asked his friend to record the discussion to “prove to his parents what he has been trying to tell them for some time. The teacher in this video has a long history of pushing a liberal agenda, by shouting down students. She is very intolerant of other points of view that she does not share. The atmosphere at this school is not very conducive to opposing views.”
The school reacted to the controversy by claiming it represented “a learning experience,” and failed to indicate whether it would take any action against Dixon-Neely for her blatantly misleading and downright dangerous teaching.
As we have previously documented, there are numerous examples where children are being made to chant songs worshipping Obama in schools, perform military-style parades in his honor, or watch propaganda videos about celebrities affirming their allegiance to him.
In September 2009, the White House announced it would stream an Obama speech directly into government schools. The speech was accompanied by lesson plans issued by the Department of Education which instructed teachers to ask children "Why is it important that we listen to the President and other elected officials."
This was merely a continuation of the cult of personality that has been built up around Obama with the aid of the education system.
This creepy cult-like video showing celebrities pledging their "service" to the Obama government's global warming agenda was shown in Utah schools.
This now infamous "Obama Youth" video shows students at a middle school in Missouri performing a military style drill while chanting slogans about Obama's policies.
Children at Sand Hill Elementary School in Asheville, NC recite Obama campaign slogans.
A creepy video of young children in Illinois singing a Maoist-style homage to Obama's government, chanting "Yes We Can." A shockingly accurate comparison with the Hitler Youth is made at the end of the clip.
Teenagers in Toronto Canada perform a song for Obama in school.
Shocking video of a teacher forcing children to worship Obama. The kids look largely disinterested.
