A little girl from Georgia named Josie Orihuela appeared on Fox News this week to share her recording of a rant her sixth grade teacher went on in class – a rant in which she told students that everyone in America is an “illegal immigrant,” that Donald Trump wants to pave the way for a return to segregation, and that white children need to go home and think about their role in the enslavement of blacks.
In an interview with “Fox & Friends,” Orihuela exposed social studies teacher Johnetta Benton’s racist, political, unacceptable classroom of indoctrination for the world to see.
According to Orihuela, the problems began as Benton introduced a video about Black History Month by talking about Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan, surmising that it could be the beginning of a movement to “bring back segregation.”
“When my president says let’s Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?” Benton asked. “Maybe he’s talking about it was great, during segregation in the 60’s. Maybe he’s talking about the 70’s, when we had the Black Panther movement because people were still not being treated equally. Maybe he’s talking about the 90’s when he had police officers beat and Rodney King in the street. Now we’re in the 2000s and we still having the same issues.
“He must be talking about when it was great for Europeans,” Benton continued. “America has never been great for minorities, and even now it makes me go, Hmmm, when I’m trying to figure out when was it great. And then now he’s trying to stop immigration.”
“It kept getting worse and worse,” Orihuela told Fox News.
Students in the class said that the slogan and Trump’s immigration policies were merely attempts to go back to a time when there were stricter limits on incoming residents, but Benton was not having it.
“Because Europeans came from Europe,” the teacher said. “You are immigrants. You are illegal immigrants. Because you came and just took it, you are an immigrant. This is not your country. Before you talk about somebody else look at yourself in the mirror, look at your ancestry in the mirror before you start saying ‘You’re bad, and you’re bad and you’re bad so you can’t come ’cause you happened to have killed a few people’ – Well guess what – my people have killed millions, not a few. Millions upon millions upon millions – babies and children.”
Orihuela’s mother, Kimberly, said the video was enough to convince her that it was time to pull her daughter out of the school.
“I had to get my kids out of the Henry County schools,” she said. “She basically told these children that they were responsible for millions of deaths. Why is she saying that every white child is the descendent of a slave owner? That’s just not true.”
It’s fine for this teacher to hold these kinds of far left-wing, kooky opinions about the nation’s history, white privilege, Donald Trump, and the plight of African-Americans. It’s NOT fine for her to use her position of power to indoctrinate kids into her extremist view of the world. It’s certainly not fine for her to try and make sixth-grade white kids feel guilty about the evils of the last four hundred years.
If there’s one good thing about the age of the omnipresent cell phone camera, it’s that more and more of these insane educators are going to be caught redhanded.
