This is a great teachable moment for the students in her school district. Hey kids, this is literally what facism looks like. If you think for yourself, or have an opinion that is different from the people in charge, they feel it's ok to destroy your life. When you apply this type of practice to the government, you have a totalitarian dictatorship. This is what the "woke" culture wants for your future. Sounds great.......right?

The comments she made are in no way inflammatory or racist. I see a payout in her favor.
