Richmond Hill high school teacher under investigation for alleged Islamophobic tweets

TORONTO – A Richmond Hill, Ont., teacher is being investigated for a series of alleged tweets with Islamophobic themes, the York Region District School Board confirmed.

A now-deleted Twitter account used a photo that appears to be of a teacher at a Richmond Hill high school.

The school board said it was made aware of the tweets Thursday and the teacher was told about the investigation, which is also looking into whether the account was hacked by an impersonator.

    A Richmond Hill, Ont., teacher is being investigated for a series of alleged free speech, the York Region District School Gestapo confirmed.

    • Yup.

        This reminds me of an appropriate article at Jihad Watch by Hugh Fitzgerald “Strategies of Denial”. that I read earlier today. It is worth reading and sharing I think.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The Muslim Brotherhood representatives in Canada probably influenced the decision to investigate.

    I will give the Post credit on this one, at least they printed some of the tweets so that we can judge their content for ourselves. Most of these charges of islamaphobia, racism, sexism, etc. just interpret the content, shaded to what they want you to think was in them. Even in this article, “you Muslims are really on a role copying each other tonight. Oh right, they don’t want you thinking for yourself.” (the original tweet) does not exactly translate as “Muslims don’t think for themselves” (the articles interpretation).

    If the teacher really sent these using his real name he must have known that the thought police would come for him. Maybe he sent them while drunk or having some sort of breakdown. Chilling to think what will happen to him.

    • It does seem rather silly of him.

    • Alain

      Why on earth should it matter what state he was in when they were sent? That should be totally irrelevant. The only thing that should concern every person who loves freedom is the blatant abuse of power by the school board, who are behaving like a Canadian version of the SS. Why are we accepting to cower in fear of what we say, because that is exactly what they want. It amounts to terrorism to shut down free speech and free thought and is no better than Islamic terrorism. I have no problem going after someone inciting death and violence to others, which that has never been the case of any of the victims of these cases. At the same time there is no shortage of Muslims calling for violence, death and destruction in our midst that our little fascists choose to ignore.

      • Rosenmops

        I’m not accepting of the thought police. But I’m not brave/foolish enough to send out stuff like that in my real name. After I retire, maybe. But there is always the fear that the gestapo would try to go after my kids. I guess they have me more or less terrorized. Fortunately there are places such as this where we can talk anonymously, and I can talk to my sister Frau in the face-to-face world.

        • Alain

          Sorry if I sounded like I was suggesting that. The point I was trying, probably poorly, to make is that freedom loving people need to resist and fight it as a majority group. One individual at a time and isolated is easy to pick off and attack, but not mass resistance. Sadly few people understand that liberty and freedom always require constant vigilance, or they will be taken away little by little, piece by piece. We did not reach this point overnight; it happened bit by bit and will continue until liberty and freedom are part of forgotten history. Of course the other point I wanted to make is that we really should not be scolding the victim of these fascists for assuming the right to free speech is assured.

          With you on this. If I used my real name here it would be career suicide. Lefties can’t come to terms with the idea that what you think does not necessarily mean what you would say in the classroom if you approach your classroom in a professional manner. For the left if you do not believe in the narrative, you must be destroyed.

          • Rosenmops

            Very true.

  • ontario john

    Good thing he didn’t say anything about gays or he would be in real trouble.

  • pdxnag

    Is this fit to tweet?

    • H8tr!

      • pdxnag

        Yes he was.

      Truth can not be used as a defense in Canada.

      • Alain

        Yes, our great Supremes told us so.

  • Agashan Pirapa

    He was my teacher

    • El Martyachi

      What’s he like?

  • Edubeat

    Schoolboard educrats will get you every time…if you ever need to meet a group of spineless jellyfish just meet with some of our local superintendants.

      You must teach in Peel. Know the feeling.

  • sanwin

    You can find the tweets here.

    • Clausewitz

      Do these retards even know who Atticus Finch was, and the stand he took in To Kill a Mockingbird?? What’s wrong with naming your child Atticus. Is the left so offended that someone should have a southern sounding name? Talk about hypocrites.

  • sanwin

    And this is the cow who was behind it.

    • Clausewitz

      Just another fat angry cow out to inflict as much pain as she can.
