StaffRebel Columnist

Long Island school teacher Veronica Welsh has been reassigned after she claimed that students who wear Donald Trump hats and gear are 'racist'.

The Smithtown High School teacher wrote on her personal Facebook page that, “This week is Spirit Week at Smithtown HS West. It’s easy to spot which students are racist by the Trump gear they’re sporting for USA Day.”

The backlash came fast and furious.

MRU Trump hat: What do students really think?

Long Island News 12 readers spoke out saying, “I wouldn’t want this hateful bully anywhere near my children” and “She has no right to pass judgement on our children’s views or the views of their parents.”

Superintendent James Grossane called the Facebook post 'unfortunate'.

“This is an extremely unfortunate incident and these actions are not promoted by the Smithtown Central School District Administration and Board of Education, nor do they reflect the attitudes of our students and staff,” he said in a statement.

According to Newsday, Welsh has been administratively reassigned.

Well, she obviously has too much privilege. Not white privilege but self-important social justice warrior political correctness privilege.

Her opinion or no opinion. Her way of right-think or no thinking allowed. I can only imagine how she directs student’s thoughts to only her beliefs otherwise poor grades.

And she simply doesn’t get it. In the marketplace of free thought, she demands that the only product is hers.

So it is racist to wear something such as “Make America Great Again”. Yes, very racist. How about “Hillary for Jail”? Probably calls that sexist.

She is a sad example of what came out of the educational system and is now part of that educational system. Time to give her the boot and a nice letter of reprimand in her file for possible future employer’s to read when or if she gives this school as a reference.

Spirit Day? Will they have a Christian Day, a Straight Day, a Jewish Day, and Hindu Day, a None-of-the-above Day? A little all to strange for schools to be getting involved with when basic education is in order. I know, an “Im gonna learnt somfing taday Day” might be a good change.

Funny how these left wing people don’t recognize their own ‘racist-bigotry’. i.e. she is preaching that you can tell all about a person by their t-shirts…or perhaps their skin colour…or haircut…it’s all the same and this Veronica Welsh is a racist-bigot who thinks she is tolerant…the worst kind of human being.

I think that she was just doing a Hillary imitation. Quit the education business, Veronica and get a job writing prepared speech responses for the Democrats. The one’s they have been using are getting stale.

It’s been a long time “thing” on social media for real ugly people to put up a glamour pic of a celebrity for their photo.
It’s also been a life-time personal experience that some of the most gorgeous women are mentally challenged or brain dead!!!!

This stanky-ho is kind of hot – too bad the bitch can’t shut the fuck up and do her job.

Sure hope she was reassigned to cleaning Porta-Potties!! There are way too many “political” teachers in our American schools and it must be stopped. These teachers are political moronic Libtards and are more concerned who the students & parents vote for than in the 3 Rs.

About time the political corrections commissars got a taste of their own medicine.
