UPDATE: The district has announced on Wednesday that their investigation has concluded and the teacher is no longer employed.
A Utah teacher has been placed on administrative leave after she was filmed going on a crazy unhinged political rant and threatening students who do not agree with her far-left ideology.
The Lehi High School teacher threatened to open a “can of whoop ass” on students and “make their lives a living hell” if they did not fall in line with her beliefs. She also threatened to make fun of them if they expressed views they disagreed with.
“Most of y’all parents are dumber than y’all, I’m going to say that out loud,” the teacher ranted after declaring how much she hates former President Donald Trump and people who won’t get vaccinated. “You don’t have to do everything your parents say and you don’t have to believe everything your parents believe.”
She also tells the students in the video, “If you don’t believe in climate change, get the hell out” and “if you’re a homophobe, get out.”
“This is my classroom and if you guys are going to put me at risk, you’re going to hear about it. Because I have to be here, I don’t have to be happy about the fact that there’s kids coming in here with their variants that could possibly get me or my family sick, that’s rude.”
The teacher claimed that even if the students told the administration about what she was saying, nothing would be done to her. However, she has now been placed on administrative leave by the Alpine School District over the shocking comments she made in the video.
“We became aware late this afternoon of an incident that took place today in one of our high school classrooms. An immediate investigation ensued,” the school district said in a statement.”The employee has been put on administrative leave pending a thorough investigation. This behavior is inappropriate, not reflective of the professional conduct and decorum we expect of our teachers, and will not be tolerated.”
Local station KSLTV reports that “the clip was posted on rumble.com by Eric Moustos, a former Salt Lake City police officer who resigned after he objected to riding a motorcycle through the city’s gay pride parade in June 2014. More recently, Moustos has spearheaded the Utah Business Revival, which held large rallies in 2020 to protest government restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. The clip is all that Moustos released and it’s unclear what happened before or after the recording.”
