While it’s been well-established that many members of public school staff around the country are open adherents to radical, far-left ideology, it appears that some go above and beyond when pushing these messages.
I guess you could call it that.
An assistant public school principal has gotten national attention after filming himself yelling “F— the police” in a social media video.
I’m sorry, is it not too much to expect that the people who have been charged with shaping young minds be a little bit more mindful of their behavior?
BizPac Review reports that Steven Lysenko, who works at Spencerport High School outside of Rochester, New York, claims that the was pepper-sprayed at a “peaceful” Black Lives Matter protest on behalf of Daniel Pride, who died in police custody back in March.
Rochester’s mayor has suspended seven police officers in relation to this incident and the now apparently obligatory “peaceful” protests have broken out (including the harassment of diners in Rochester restaurants, for some reason).
“Good evening, folks. It’s Steve Lysenko, president of the local chapter of the National Association for Multicultural Education. In an act of protest this evening, we marched west on Court Street, and we didn’t do anything but chant and sing, all the way, halfway across the bridge, at which point, we met the Rochester police department.
“And guess what happened? Our peacekeepers ended up shooting pepper spray at us for singing and chanting and telling them what a s—-y a– job they were doing. They can F— right off, America. F— the police; F— Rochester Police Department. Thank you.”

Call me a cock-eyed idealist, but in today’s vehemently anti-cop climate I find it very hard to believe the officers just randomly shot pepper spray at protesters for singing, chanting, and “telling them what a s—-y a– job they were doing” in a blue state, a blue county, a blue city with a blue mayor.
While school officials were forced to respond to this incident, they did so with the predictable deep bow to the progressive cause and avoided naming any names.
“As we have stated consistently and clearly, Spencerport Central School District stands in solidarity in support of racial equality and systemic change.
“We remain committed to this change, and want all of our families to know we further stand in solidarity with peaceful protesters. However, when a District employee uses language in public or on social media that does not align with our Code of Conduct or demonstrate appropriate role modeling for students, that is something that we will not condone. These statements by our administrator have caused disruption within our school community.
“We apologize to our students, parents and community that you had to hear this language from one of our employees. This will be addressed as a confidential, personnel matter.”
Twitter users, as you can imagine, were a bit more blunt.
And anyone has questions about why our children have such absurd beluefs about this country? I’m sure the police shot at you for merely walking across a bridge. Weren’t blocking that bridge, were you? Would love to see him survive w/o police protection.Multi-Cultural Education?😳

Doesn’t belong in education. Aren’t you supposed to keep your political views private?

If that same assistant principal had yelled F—- Black Lives Matter, it would have been no confidential personnel matter. It would have been carried out very publicly. He would have been summarily fired by the school and doxed so others could pile-on.
