Derp Roundup: Biblical Computer Programming, Obama’s Race Czar, And Other Horrors

Sudo bring me a muffin.
It’s time for another Derp Roundup, the occasional feature where we pressure-wash all the crud off our open browser tabs and bring you some stories that didn’t quite merit their own posts, but were too stupid to ignore altogether. Please administer brain bleach with caution. Read more on Derp Roundup: Biblical Computer Programming, Obama’s Race Czar, And Other Horrors…

Nice Florida Teacher Who Tweeted ‘Obama Is A Pussy’ Nine Million Times Outraged He Wasn’t Invited To Obama Speech

Earlier today we brought you the story of a Wisconsin professor whose life was made somewhat hellish because she sent an email saying that the tea party shut down the government last fall. Well we would like you to know that there are martyrs to free speech on both sides! Take the case of Randall Scott, a high school social studies teacher at Coral Reef Senior High in Miami, Florida, who believes that he was discriminated against when administrators excluded him from a speech that Barack Obama gave at the high school last week. It’s just the sort of trampling of Free Americans’ rights that you’d expect from Barack Hussein Obama against someone whose twitter feed is full of charming Instagram images like the picture above, accompanied by the text A weed smoking Kenyan is your president. And he is in charge of your health care. Seems normal. If your stupid that is. It’s just getting to where if you’re a birther who tweets “OBAMA IS A PUSSY” over and over, and make so many remarks in your classroom about how terrible the fake president is that two students asked to be assigned to another teacher, that you just might not be invited to sit in the front row for the guy’s speech.

Academic Freedom In Peril: Patriot Teacher Reprimanded For Innocent ‘How Is Obama Just Like Stalin?’ Homework

A social studies teacher at Kell High School in Marietta, Georgia, gave students a brilliant lesson in logical fallacies last week with this homework question in a “current issues” class: Find evidence for a comparison of Lenin/Stalin’s methods of changing Russia from a capitalist country to a command country to Obama’s methods of changing the United States from a capitalist country to a socialist country. For some reason, a number of students and parents complained about the “analytical thinking” assignment to the school’s administration, possibly because they have been brainwashed by leftist university professors. The assignment was withdrawn, and the teacher, a long-term substitute for the regular instructor, was reprimanded but will remain on the job. Her new assignment, which asks students to use science to prove that Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Light (show your work), is not expected to cause any problems.

West Virginia Newspaper Shares Reader’s Awesome ‘Kill Everybody’ Voicemail

A West Virginia newspaper is taking flak for running a reader’s anonymous voicemail rant in its letters column, simply because the reader suggested some views that were a little bit outside the mainstream. In response to an article about the maybe-trumped-up firing of a lesbian teacher, a reader left a message on the Lincoln Journal’s voicemail praising the school board for its wisdom and suggesting some other improvements for the world. The message, as printed in the paper’s “Gripes and Gratitudes” column, read: We were really glad to hear that School Board is getting rid of them queers. The next thing is we need to get rid of all the n****rs, the spics, the kikes and the wops. You know even them Catholics, they are wrong as baby eaters. We need to clear them people out and have good, white, God fearing Christians and everybody else needs to be put to death for their abominations. We’ll keep Lincoln County white and right. Thank you. It was awfully thoughtful of the caller to use asterisks like that, we think. A Charleston TV station reports that many readers were upset by the remarks, which just goes to show that some people in West Virginia don’t appreciate the value of having a rich public dialogue that values all points of view.

Gentleman Mitt Romney To Uppity Teacher: ‘I Didn’t Ask You a Question’

Here is a video from a nice lady who attended a Romney roundtable all interested and optimistic about the whole thing until Romney asked, “Which one of you is the teacher?” and being a teacher, this nice lady raised her hand. Then Romney began lecturing her about teachers unions and how we need to privatize everything and have charter schools, and how we suck as a country compared to Other Countries. Kind of tired of being lectured, this nice lady said “Oh I have an answer for that.” Romney, being the gentleman he is, responded “I didn’t ask you a question.” Read more on Gentleman Mitt Romney To Uppity Teacher: ‘I Didn’t Ask You a Question’…
