Another Idiotic Example of AR Type Decisions

We point out these nonsensical facts because they illuminate the stupidity of the laws that ARs manage to get passed nationwide.  Supposedly  because “some” alleged breeders living in the USA are not perfect, and may even be subpar, we are FORCED into believing by ARs that every animal purchased must be either:  “rehomed, shelter or rescued”.. and then ARs pass laws to that effect.  What these laws do, will be the exact opposite… it will not change what anyone actually wants, it will only drive up the pricing for the animal that people DO want. It will NOT drive subpar breeders out of existence.

In the example below, we are being led to believe that we must suspend, reprimand or punish a teacher for telling the truth about past history? So if we tell the truth about HSUS, Animal Rights and their REAL, actual agenda, does that mean WE should be silenced and punished?  Does that mean we are FORCED into buying dogs or cats we don’t want? That sellers are forced only to sell what ARs claim they can sell?   How asinine.

Yet we see this type of example on a weekly basis.  People forced to create wedding cakes for people they don’t want to serve. Basketball team owner forced to sell team (if 75% of teams had voted) because of highly questionable private conversations which were taped and then sold to news media? Forced non-gender identity so boys can wear dresses to school?  Forced acceptance-tolerance of religious belief statues, including Satanic statutes in public, if a manger is allowed at Christmas? Forced removal of long standing iconic war memorial (cross) in San Diego because it’s “religion?”  People, this country is going to Hell in a handbasket, if that is the correct phrase.  Let’s not help it happen by following IDIOTS.

Middle School Teacher Suspended For Showing Video About White Actors Wearing Blackface

A middle school history teacher in small-town southeastern Michigan has been placed on paid administrative leave because he informed students that white entertainers used to paint their faces black to imitate black people and showed kids a video about it.

The teacher is Alan Barron, reports the Monroe News. The 59-year-old teacher has taught in the local school district for well over three decades and is retiring in just two weeks.

The suspension occurred after an assistant principal observed Barron teaching an eighth-grade class. Barron’s topic for the day was racial segregation laws during the Jim Crow era. The lesson included a video which showed how white actors commonly used theatrical makeup known as blackface — a practice which began in the nineteenth century and lasted over 100 years.

The unidentified assistant principal concluded that Barron’s lesson about how entertainers used to be racist was itself racist, according to the local paper. The assistant principal also apparently ordered that Barron stop the video as it was being played.

Parents with kids at the school have overwhelmingly opposed the suspension.

One parent, Adrienne Aaron, who has a daughter in the class, spoke with the Monroe News.

“It had nothing to do with racism,” Aaron (whose husband is black) said. “History is history. We need to educate our kids to see how far we’ve come in America. How is that racism?”

“He’s one of the best teachers we’ve had,” Aaron added. “We can’t believe that this is happening.”

Other parents have taken to social media. In a missive on Facebook, a frustrated parent called Barron a “great” teacher who “has changed many children’s lives.”

A school district spokesman, Bobb Vergiels, refused to say that Barron was suspended. Instead, Vergiels said, Barron is “on leave.”

“Mr. Barron has been on leave for about a week while we look into a reported situation in his classroom,” a school district statement obtained by the Monroe News reads. “Because this is a personnel matter that is going through the teacher-contract required steps, we cannot comment any further.”

As a result of the suspension, Barron cannot attend any school functions including an annual banquet during which he and other retiring teachers will be honored.

Barron is not the first teacher in Monroe to make national headlines. In March, officials at a local high school suspended band teacher Brian Sullivan because his technique for improving a girl’s posture while playing her instrument was to duct-tape her ankles to a chair. (RELATED: High school band teacher on leave for duct-taping kid’s legs to chair over bad posture)
