The leftwing academic intelligentsia strikes again.
From the Daily Caller.
A high school teacher in South Carolina is under investigation and has been placed on long-term administrative leave after he allegedly threw an American flag on the floor and stomped on it in front of his students.
Scott Compton, an English teacher at Chapin High School in Chapin, S.C., reprised the unpatriotic deed in three classes over the course of one day, reports local NBC affiliate WIS.
One parent, Michael Copeland, said he heard his teenage daughter discussing the incident and asked her to tell him the whole story.
“He drew a couple of symbols, like one of them was a cross, and he said, ‘What does this represent,’ and everybody said, ‘Christianity,’” Copeland explained to WIS.
“Then he proceeds to take down the American flag, and said, ‘This is a symbol, but it’s only a piece of cloth. It doesn’t mean anything,’ and then he throws it down on the floor and then stomps on it, repeatedly,” Copeland continued.
“I asked what was he trying to get, the point across? And she said, ‘I don’t know,’ and he said, his explanation was there would be no consequences, it’s just a piece of cloth that doesn’t mean anything.”
Perhaps ironically, however, Compton would soon face consequences.
Mark Bounds, a spokesperson for the school district, told WIS that the district frequently cautions teachers to avoid introducing personal opinions in the classroom.
……“Our superintendent served in the military, I served in the military for 20 years, our flag is a symbol of our freedom, and so many people have fought and died for that liberty and so we take this action very seriously,” Bounds added.
According to FITSNews, a South Carolina-based conservative news and entertain website, people in the Chapin High community describe Compton a “good teacher” who is “very liberal” and “wears it on his sleeve in the classroom.”
A substitute teacher will fill in for Compton for the remainder of the school year, according to WIS.
He’s a lousy fucking excuse for an American high school teacher. But unfortunately, there are more like him.
This kind of nihilist bullshit has reached ridiculous proportions. There is a concerted effort on the part of leftwing academia to wipe out any and all vestiges of patriotism or individuality. It ranges from the infestation of socialism into curriculums to Dhimmi apologetics.
The attorney for a Midlands high school teacher accused of stomping on an American flag in front of his honors English classes says his client meant no disrespect.
Darryl D. Smalls says 12-year teacher Scott Compton was attempting to show his classes that America is an “inspirational idea,” greater than the “material objects that represent it,” during a lesson on symbolism.
I don’t buy that shit sandwich, especially when he wears his far-left ideology on his sleeve. His intention was to shock, insult, and show his hatred at what America stands for—which is what the flag represents. Come to think of it, Obama has demonstrated the same disdain toward this country over the last 4 years; he just didn’t use the flag for a prop.
