From JMG: Another asshole high school teacher, known to throw around racial and homophobic epithets on a regular basis, gets reported by an openly gay student who wants the teacher fired over his latest blurb. Mr. Dave Burk was lecturing on tax money and the NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) and tells his students:
“How would you feel about your tax dollars going to pay some black fag in New York to take pictures of other black fags?” Burk allegedly asked, according to student Jordan Hunter.
WTF is that supposed to mean, anyway? Rock on, Jordan! This teacher is free to think and feel any way he thinks and feels, but his free speech ends when it comes to verbalizing his bigotry and slander to a roomful of high school students. Geneva, IL is in the ‘burbs of Chicago, smack in the middle of White Bread Christian Conservative America … I grew up just a few miles from there and still have lots of family there. It’s 96% white and Republican … I’m sure there were no black kids in his class and he was betting that there were no “fags”, either.
This high school is also 15 miles from the one-and-only Peter LaBarbera. It’s ground-zero for corn-fed homo-hatin’. Goes way back, too … I had one abusive teacher there in the 60’s. Asshole!
UPDATE: the teacher gets a slap on the wrist and the Freepers are unloading on Jordan Hunter, the student who STOOD UP FOR HIMSELF, and their comments (posted on PHB) are typical of the bigots and haters who promote and wish violence on INNOCENT people like Jordan who STAND UP AGAINST BIGOTS.
