Two Georgia Educators Lampooned on National TV

I have written several articles about the Dublin, GA teacher that told some students their parents are evil if they voted for Obama. She doubled down by also going even further and saying you can’t be a Christian if you support Obama, that he supports late-term abortions, and is also a Muslim. Months after she uttered these outrageous comments to the students and then to the parents as well, she will be allowed to retire with a pension next year.

When this all happened I tweeted links to my articles to a few national shows that I thought would likely be interested in covering this story. Among those I tweeted were the Daily Show and the Nightly Show. In the most recent episode Larry Wilmore lampooned Nancy Perry along with another Georgia educator who scolded black parents from leaving a commencement ceremony even though she had dismissed them.

Here are the clips from the episode relevant to Nancy Perry. Good to know the power of Twitter to shine a spotlight on outrageous local stories and put them squarely in front of a national T.V. audience.

Alan,

You can always tell when you’ve made a valid point—someone shows up on your blog and attempts to change the narrative using either a false equivalency or examples that are years old. I am constantly amused by those on the right who are in deep denial of the fact that the GOP tolerates and welcomes racists in its party and sometimes rally around and praises them. Many of them were staunch supporters of Cliven Bundy—until he showed his true colors, which happened to be based on racism.

Too many, particularly on the Left, believe they are never wrong or at fault. To those misguided souls denial is only a river in Egypt.

Well, look what just popped up. The Nightly Show will surely be interested in this Dick Gregory routine. It has gov. waste & racism all in one event.

Well, it’s not real ancient,but since you asked, here’s a story about outrageous comments that might fit your criteria for sending to The Daily Show and/or the Nightly Show

I guess I missed the panel about the NC high school teacher who told a student he could be arrested for criticizing obama.
I also missed the panel on New Jersey grade schoolers taught to sing praises of obama.
