In Tacoma, another adult attacks a child for respecting Trump
President Donald Trump routinely triggers liberals, bringing out the worst in them, even to the detriment of children.
For example, there was the 7-year-old boy in Delaware reduced to tears after two women attacked him and stole his MAGA hat. In Colorado, a woman on a moped punched a 12-year-old riding his bike and carrying a Trump sign. Then again in Delaware, three kids — ages 10, 7 and 5 — were egged while participating in a Trump rally.
Elsy Kusander’s 10-year-old son wasn’t physically attacked by deranged, hateful anti-Trumpers. Nonetheless, his teacher demonstrated the petulant, childish behavior anti-Trumpers are renowned for.
According to KTTH-FM talk-radio host Jason Rantz, Kusander’s son was taking a remote class on Friday, the day President Trump announced he had contracted coronavirus. The teacher, Brendan Stanton, of P.G. Keithley Middle School, a public school in Tacoma, asked the class their daily question: “Who is the one person you admire and why?”
Kusander’s 10-year-old, whom Rantz has declined to identify, answered Trump.
“I admire Donald J. Trump because he is making America great again. And because he is the best president the United States of America could ever, ever have. And he built the wall so terrorists couldn’t come into the U.S. Trump is the best person in the world. And that’s why I admire him,” the child reportedly wrote.
Rantz noted Stanton “almost immediately kicked the student out of the chatroom, deleted the chat, and proceeded to attack the president while calling out the student for mentioning him.”
Kusander told Rantz she overheard Stanton ranting about the president and decided to record his outburst on her phone.
“The example that was shared in the chat, which I went ahead and erased for us, was not appropriate, right?” the teacher reportedly said, apparently to the class. “Especially as that individual has created so much division and hatred between people and specifically spoken hatred to many different individuals, OK? Again, that individual has spoken hate to many individuals, and I don’t think is an appropriate example for a role model that we should be admiring.”
When Kusander later contacted Stanton to complain, he allegedly lied about the exchange. The teacher, according to what she told Rantz, said the question encouraged students to write about a “computer programmer” that they looked up to. Or, they could choose “someone from the community.”
Stanton then said he had deleted the “admired person” question because of privacy concerns, and maintained that her child’s answer had offended his classmates.
Stanton, according to Kusander, then told her, “I do try to keep politics out of the classroom … because students have different opinions, right?” Despite that claim, he then told the mom that her son’s answer had offended him.
At that point, Rantz reported, she told Stanton she had recorded him. His tune and tone subsequently shifted.
“I do apologize if my words were not perfect at the time. If I used… if I said that Trump was ‘hateful and divisive,’ that may have been what I used at the time, but my purpose was in bringing us back to the conversation of computer scientists and the positive role that they’ve played in our history,” Stanton told Kusander. He then added, “I totally respect him as an individual. And his opinion. I am always interested in student feedback and also parent feedback as well. So I appreciate you having this conversation with me.”
Rantz noted that neither the school’s principal nor the school district’s spokesperson responded to requests for comment.
