Bad behavior all around: 2015 Teacher of the Year using profanity, Fox News Commentator assaulted at restaurant

According to MPR/Pioneer Press this morning:

“A 2015 Teacher of the Year from St. Paul schools lost her spot on a new teacher licensing board because she insulted President Donald Trump, using a raw expletive, in a social media post. “He is not worthy, nor are his puppet masters, of human dignity,” reads the Jan. 12 Facebook post of Amy Hewett-Olatunde. “He is the s***hole and we should line up to take a dump on him.” The comment was attached to a news article about remarks attributed to Trump earlier this year in which he questioned why the U.S. would accept more immigrants from Haiti and “s***hole countries” in Africa.

In this photo provided by Education Minnesota, Amy Hewett-Olatunde looks on after being named 2015 Minnesota Teacher of the Year by Education Minnesota in Bloomington, Minn., Sunday, May 3, 2015. Hewitt -Olatunde teaches ESL at LEAP High School in St. Paul)

She was nominated for a spot on the Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board; her on-line comments reached the ears of Senators Eric Pratt (R-Shakopee) and Paul Utke (R-Park Rapids) who led State Senate in declining to approve her nomination. Good for the Minnesota Senate for upholding basic standards (note the narrow  33-34 split, with no DFL members joining the nae votes).

I will not hold my breath waiting for Education Minnesota, the teachers’ union, to withdraw her 2015 title, citing the poor example this sets for student and other teachers; sadly, Amy Hewett-Olatunde perfectly represents today’s teachers’ union.

Next? According to MPR/AP:

Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren says she is disheartened and embarrassed but not broken after a patron threw water on her at a Minneapolis restaurant. The Fox News contributor told the channel’s “Fox & Friends” Wednesday that she was eating Sunday brunch with her parents when a group of people “thought it would be funny to throw water at” her and chant profanities.

Lahren says people don’t have to like or agree with her, but that they “don’t have the right to throw things” at her. She insists she is “tough” and “can handle it.” President Trump tweeted in support of Lahren, calling her “a truly outstanding and respected young woman!” Minneapolis police spokesperson John Elder said Wednesday that no one has reported the incident.

What do these incidents have in common? Trump Derangement Syndrome, or people on the left who feel entitled to act in an uncivilized, unhinged manner because they hate Donald Trump. It feels like it is going to be a long, hot summer in the Twin Cities. Just wait until the National Education Association (NEA) holds it convention in Minneapolis June 30-July 5.
