North Carolina teacher Tanya Dixon-Neeley suspended after saying student could be arrested for Obama criticism
MY Fox reports a North Carolina high school teacher who told a student he could be arrested for criticizing President Barack Obama was suspended Monday.
The Salisbury Post reported that social studies teacher Tanya Dixon-Neely was suspended with pay from North Rowan High School in Spencer, N.C., as officials investigated a YouTube video in which she can be heard shouting at a student who questioned Obama.
"Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush?" Dixon-Neely said in the nearly 10-minute video that was shot by another student. Toward the end of the argument, she said, "You are not supposed to slander the president."
The student told the teacher that a person cannot be arrested "unless you threaten the president."
The argument began when the classroom began discussing news reports that likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney bullied a fellow student when he was in high school.
"Didn't Obama bully somebody though?" a student in the classroom asked, referring to an incident Obama described in his memoir "Dreams from My Father."
By the way, this teacher is a typical Obama supporter. They're not the brightest people.
