A substitute teacher who posted threatening messages toward supporters of President Donald Trump just learned a lesson of his own.
David Colin, a substitute teacher for Rutherford County public schools in Tennessee, is the latest liberal to learn the pitfalls of social media. After posting a number of angry threats of violence on his Facebook page, the school finally took notice and dropped the hammer.
Amazingly, his angry posts date back to last November. The school and parents are only now finding out about them. Apparently, some schools do not bother to monitor their staff’s public activities online.
Colin is accused of posting on Facebook, “the only good Trump supporter is a dead Trump supporter,” on Facebook Nov. 9 at 9:29 a.m.
Colin is also accused of writing this on Facebook on Jan. 16: “I spent a lot of time today thinking about the state of this mess. There are huge numbers of people that are upset, mad, angry, (pretty much every negative word), but what I have not seen is a plan. Everyone is looking for leadership to start this off, but there is no one carrying the banner. Without that we will all settle in to becoming angry hateful people and there will be no solutions. So, where do we go from here? Rallies and demonstrations are pretty much futile, since the lunatics just laugh at us knowing we haven’t the guts to stand up ad take the actions needed. Writing and complaining falls on deaf ears. Not until the first shot is fired will the recovery begin.”
Here is a statement from Rutherford County Schools.
Rutherford County Schools received several messages after hours on Feb. 8 about a substitute teacher who is accused of making inappropriate, threatening comments on social media during the work day.
Rutherford County Schools contracts with PESG to provide substitute teachers, and the school district has notified the contractor that the substitute teacher, David Colin, will not be permitted to work any longer as a substitute in Rutherford County Schools.
PESG has indicated it will conduct an internal investigation of the allegations immediately.
David Colin has now set his Facebook profile to private. He told the TV news station that he is now getting threats of violence. He was too afraid to go on camera and talk about his firing. I suppose now he knows how Trump supporters feel.
This should serve as a warning to parents. In the age of Trump, teachers are more emboldened than ever to force their beliefs on students. Parents should get to know every teacher their student knows.
Are you surprised to hear that a teacher threatens Trump and gets fired for it? Let us know in the comments, because we want to hear from you!
