A theology teacher for a Catholic high school in the state of Ohio was given a pink slip after some students at the school released a video of her saying that George Floyd’s cause of death was disputed.
According to the Daily Wire, a publication known as the Columbus Dispatch, Bishop Ready High School teacher Deborah DelPrince was given administrative leave after she made comments about Floyd and his cause of death. Not long after that she was fired due to the backlash from students and the media. DelPrince had been teaching in the Columbus area since 1999.
A Bishop Ready alum posted a video on Twitter in which DelPrince condemns NBA legend Lebron James for wearing a shirt that says “I Can’t Breathe,” which are reportedly the last words spoken by George Floyd before he went unconscious.
“That’s just not true,” DelPrince said, referring to James’s shirt. “It perpetuates a myth against police. I’m not sure Lebron James is in the position to be disrespectful to police officers, primarily because he probably doesn’t go anywhere without a bodyguard.”
“Did you just say that it’s disputed that George Floyd couldn’t breathe?” one of DelPrince’s students asked.
“Yes, it is disputed,” the teacher responded.
“By who?” the student pressed.
“The tape,” DelPrince stated.
“Did the medical examiner … nevermind, I’m sorry,” the student said toward the end of the footage. “Because I’m going to stay something that’s going to get me in trouble.”
After the video was released, the Catholic diocese that is responsible for running the school started an investigation to look into DelPrince. It wasn’t long after that they released a statement saying that the teacher made “unsupported personal assertions and opinions” during the class. Liberal teachers drinking the left’s kool-aid, propagate unsupported assertions about police use of force all the time and with impunity.
“These comments, contrary to school and diocesan guidelines, reflected extremely poor judgment and, upon learning of this incident, the instructor was immediately placed on administrative leave pending a detailed investigation,” the statement says.
Both the school and the Diocese of Columbus have refused to explain which of their policies DelPrince violated that caused her to be fired. A spokesman for the Diocese told conservative site The College Fix that the teacher’s personnel matters are “confidential by policy.”
During the course of the investigation, students at the school got a petition together to have the teacher fired.
“An apology and a not very thorough investigation will not be enough this time,” the petition says. “We want to ensure that everyone who wants to share their story has a voice in this matter since so many of us were ignored before.”
So suddenly, thanks to social media and the current leftist culture, young kids have all the power and authority to have a teacher fired for sharing a personal opinion? Welcome to North Korea, or Biden’s America.
