The principal and vice principal who made a very political and mocking video as Trump and Conway received a 2 week suspension without pay this week. I wonder what would have happened if they spoofed Obama that way. ( besides spoofing it would be culture appropriation. (Muslim)
Principal Lauren Sheahan and Vice Principal Jay Kopas of Boulder Creek High School in Anthem, Arizona can appeal the ruling if they choose to do so by this Thursday, although that’s unlikely since the entire episode is on video tape.
The video, created before last month’s inauguration, portrays Trump and Conway in a decidedly negative way, with Kopas — as Trump — promising to “make Boulder Creek great again.”
“We will build a wall around our border,” he said in the clip, “and keep those moron parents and weak and loser students out. … Before those stupid students come in, we’re going to vet them and their parents. We’re gonna make sure they’re tough, that they can handle it. Once they’re here, we’re gonna track them. And they come in and they screw up, we’re gonna ship ’em back … and their lives will be a total disaster! If they’re athletic, we’ll break their kneecaps. Who wants those lightweights anyway? … They are zeroes. Zeroes!”
The district’s letters indicate that staff members can be disciplined for “unprofessional conduct, discourteous treatment of the public, improper political activity and being involved in misuse or unauthorized use of school property,” KVOA reported.
Contract renewals for Sheahan and Kopas in 2017-18 depend on how successfully they repair relationships with parents, students or staff members who may have been offended by the clip, KVOA added, citing the letters.
Sheahan apologized after the controversy erupted, KTVK-TV reported, saying in a letter that she was “deeply sorry to anyone who was offended.”
She emphasized that the “intent was to share it only with the staff and connect the satirical skit to our work ahead of the rest of the school year,” KTVK noted, adding that Sheahan also indicated the clip shouldn’t be seen as a political statement.
Obviously, you can see nothing political here, right? It’s just something to help them teach. As much practice as liberals get at lying, you would think they’d be better at it.
