Public school teacher thinks Republicans are stupid...

I think I can relate. In the 8th grade my teacher declared that we'd better hope those Republicans don't get elected. By the end of the year Republicans not only took the majority in both houses of the US Congress, but also for only two years both houses of the Illinois General Assembly.
A Virginia elementary school teacher told her students that “Republicans are stupid” and “they don’t care about anyone but wealthy people and businesses.”

Kristin Martin said this to her 6th grade class as Republican voters were filing into the halls of Powell Elementary School in Fairfax County to vote on Super Tuesday.

“It all started when this disabled kid came in and named all the Republicans candidates for Super Tuesday,” one student told The Daily Caller. “She [Martin] said to him, ‘I don’t like them, I think that they are stupid.’”

Martin’s statements were “brainwashing” students, according to one mother, who said she is a Republican and asked not to be named to protect her daughter from retaliation.

“I felt like the teacher was brainwashing naive, young children to believe people like me, my family and, to a certain extent, my daughter, were stupid,” she told TheDC via email.

The mother came forward with her daughter’s story after TheDC first reported on another Fairfax County teacher who instructed his students to conduct opposition research on Republican candidates for president.
 Then again there's probably a good chance that my 8th grade teacher would've suffered a reprisal. It's unlikely that there would've been a backlash against this activity unlike Virginia. To add details to my situation is the fact that my elementary school was heavily Black and the offending teacher if you will was white. Who knows if the race thing would've been thrown about in that situation or whatever.
