Quote# 81139

A Texas high school teacher has been placed on administrative leave following an incident where he allegedly told a 9th grade Muslim girl in his algebra class "I bet that you're grieving" on Monday following the death of Osama bin Laden.

According to one parent at Clear Brook High School in Houston who spoke about the incident to a local ABC affiliate, the teacher also said, "I heard about your uncle's death."

The parent said the student "understood that he was referring about Osama bin Laden being killed and was racially profiling her."

The name of the alleged victim of the comment has not been released. She is being described as an "American-born girl of Muslim faith."

The teacher allegedly showed no remorse after Muslim girl reacted to his comments, according to the parent (who requested anonymity from the ABC station because "she doesn't want any retaliation against her daughter or the girl who experienced the inappropriate comment.")

"The student ended up crying over what was said to her by the teacher and the teacher asked her why she was crying and another student said it was because of what you said earlier," the parent told the station. "And his response was, oh, OK, and just kind of smirked and giggled and walked away."

I grew up in Texas. Not all of us are like this douchebag.

This teacher is unfit to have responsibilities over children. His teaching license should be revoked.

Horrible, horrible person! That poor girl!

To The Teacher

Congratulations on your unemployment. You deserve it, you asshat.

by Thor, I hope that cunt keeps running his fucking mouth like that because eventually someone's gonna rip off his fucking fingers and jam them in his eyes. I just hope they get a video of it so I can watch.

Fire the asshole.
I know this is Texas and it probably won't happen because a lot of douchebags feel the same way as the teacher, nevertheless, fire his ass.
That is the only sensible response.

TEXAS! This is low even for you, Texas! Yes, I'm blaming the state as a whole for the actions of this one person; hell, the whole South is like this! I do happen to know someone from Texas, but sadly he is the exception. The South has been a reactionary hellhole for about as long as the United States has existed as a nation, and it drags the reputation of the entire country down with it. (As proof, see the diatribes of Headache on this very site. He's actually accurate... when referring to the part of the country south of the Mason-Dixon line, that is...)

Fuck off, bigot.

I hope when he goes to collect unemployment, the officer looks at him and says "According to your employer, you were fired because you made a girl cry by accusing her of being a member of a terrorist's family. You want us to reimburse you...why?"

I have SOME faith in Texas left; after all, the whistle-blower and the Muslim girl herself are Texan. Now if it had been Arizona...

Also thanks for correcting me, I read 9th grade as 9 years old. But still.

I hope the teacher gets the fucking death penalty just for that shit. Seriously though, I don't think she deserves a job.

As a graduate of one of the other high schools in CCISD, and a current resident of Clear Brook High's area, I would like to state that we're not all crazy fucknuts.

"a girl who wasn't even born on 9/11"

Most children under 10 in this area do not attend high school yet.

What the flying fuck is wrong with you! Stop using innocent people as some sort of scapegoat for your in-bred, Tea swilling, FOX nurtured, white Christian Fascist bigotry. People like you are the reason that people like me are ashamed of American culture. Did you ever stop to think of the Muslim families that lost loved ones on 9/11??! Oh, that's right, Muslims (read: brown people), can't possibly be true Americans. Fuck you very much.

It's not surprising that his target is a child.

What a douchebag asshat. I bet he feels smug and proud of himself that he made a 14 year old cry. I say we hire someone (namely me, cause I could use the money, and I would enjoy teaching this assclown a lesson) to berate him publicly into crying and then flog him for being such a prick.

5/7/2011 12:12:34 PM



I'm sorry, but that teacher is an asshole. There's no excuse for that, no justification. Even *if* bin Laden *had* been her relative, he has no right to act like this.

5/7/2011 12:32:11 PM

Reminds me of a lunch I had at Denny's. What's patriotic about picking on kids? It wouldn't matter if Osama Bin Laden happened to BE her uncle, that's just fucked up.

PS: Osama was reportedly the black sheep of the Bin Laden family, the rest of whom have been on friendly terms with previous Presidents and oil tycoons.

Can someone share this with those weirdos? I would appreciate it! I love their cyber-mob crusades against slime like this gassy, stinky, diseased, butthole who BULLIED AN INNOCENT GIRL TO TEARS!

What makes it extra heinous is that THIS IS A FULL-GROWN SCHOOLTEACHER! AN AUTHORITY FIGURE! Someone who's the antithesis of this sorta thing!!! WHAT SOCIOPATHIC SLIME!!! If I were standing nearby I'd PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE!

Bigots are ANTI-AMERICAN! DEPORT THEM ALL! Deport them to hellholes like Somalia! They don't deserve to be in The Land Of Lady Liberty! Bigots & losers have made this a land of hypocrisy, warmongering & Puritanism for so long! True American Principles are PROGRESSIVE principles!

And I'll give this beautiful true American girl a big HUGGY!

I cannot WTF this enough. Bin Laden killed Muslims too, shithead! For all you know, he killed her actual uncle!

Mrs. Antichrist

What an asshole. Some people shouldn't be teaching.

5/7/2011 12:57:10 PM


This from a teacher? What a nasty piece of garbage.
That monster does not deserve his job nor does he need to be around kids.

This really makes me angry. I'd like to smack that SOB.
he'll be a hero to many. Yeah..got pick on some child. I'm seriously pissed.

This man is an insensitive asshole and he needs to be fired immediately.

5/7/2011 1:15:16 PM

Don't worry guys the Tea Party is making calls to bankroll his wrongful termination lawsuit at the hands of the PC left as we speak.

@ Brendan Rizzo

Don't stoop to this guy's level.
