High School Teacher Who Ran Gay Straight Alliance Fired For Comments About Islam

High school teacher fired after investigation into ‘racist’ tweets

A Richmond Hill teacher has been fired following a 10-week investigation into “racist” comments critical of Islam that he allegedly posted online.

Michael Marshall was dismissed following a meeting of the York Region District School Board (YRDSB) on Tuesday, said board spokesperson Licinio Miguelo.

Miguelo said no one at the school or the board would be available to comment further.

Marshall supervised a GSA club, as well as a slam-poetry society, at Richmond Green.

Marshall could not be reached on Tuesday or Wednesday for comment.

Islam is not a race, it is a cult.

What’s interesting is this teacher ran a GSA, what a perfect storm.

Had he made those comments about Christians he would be heralded as the epitome of enlightened thinking by the Wynne Government.

    Canada, you certainly have some cleaning of the academic Augean stables to do, and a more general purging.

      It may take old fashioned Napalm to do this industrial strength cleansing.

    Ontario is very sick. The illness: progressivism, statism; the symptoms: mass muslim immigration, staggering debt, worker inefficiency, loss of creativity, loss of industry and entrepreneurial skill, crushing electricity costs, inflexibility of thinking in its media, schools, universities and bureaucracy, and general lack of free speech.

    Ontario is very, very sick.

    • A good province to leave.

        So when are you leaving?

          I’ve already left.

      The fired teacher’s comment that “sharia law is inompatible with a secular society” is the tweet that did him in. How ourageous is that?

      • Justin St.Denis

        David, there are imams who have publicly expressed the exact same sentiment – that Sharia is incompatible with a secukar world and that Islam is incompatible with democracy.

        Sue, Sue, sue, sue, sue the principal, the superintendent of education, the director of the school board, and the school board itself. He could reap MILLIONS, and should.

    More proof that Islam trumps everything in the Social Justice Universe.

    And of course “racist” tweets critical of Islam are redundant because any criticism of the Religion Of Peace is racist by definition.

    My money is on Toronto to be the first Canadian city to see flying faggots being tossed off tall buildings.

    • That I believe.

      • ismiselemeas

        The midgets must be breathing easy.

      Good band name Flying Faggots.

      • Justin St.Denis

        More memorable than The Flying Pickets.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          That’s what I want.

          • Justin St.Denis

            You remember! Ha!

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Also had to remember when I was describing it to a friend at work that the Beatles had done it as well.

    • moraywatson

      Or more precisely, proof that FEAR of the repercussions from a perpetually offended islam trumps everything in the Social Justice Universe.

      Social Justice Warriors are cowards.

      • David Murrell

        Social Justice Warriors are Nazi cowards.

  • It’s Alien vs. Predator; militant homosexuality and Islam, the two most destructive forces in our society keep clashing. Hopefully, now they’ll find a suitable imam to run the orphaned homosexual GSA club at that school.

    • Heh;)

    • David Murrell

      Alien vs. Preditor — a good way of putting it!

    • V10_Rob

      I for one welcome the continued cannibalism by the left of their own,

  • ontario john

    He should join the NDP election team, if your a homosexual you can say anything you want. Funny old world isn’t it, Christmas is banned from Ontario schools but you can get fired for saying anything negative about that fake prophet and his loony toon followers.

    • Only about Christians – had the NDP’r criticized Muslims Mulcair would fire him.

    And of course the Star can’t open up the story to comments because someone will inevitably point out that Islam is not a race, or this guy is allowed to have personal opinions, or any number of other logical criticisms.

    • This far too painful for the Star.

      • moraywatson

        …and then they came for the Gay-Straight Alliance conveners, and I said nothing…

    • mobuyus

      Logic and reason are unislamic concepts, and we are all supposed to get on board.

    • Justin St.Denis

      And why a lawsuit would likely be successful. IMPOVERISH THAT BOARD OF EDUCATION until they have their kids writing on tree bark using raspberry juice and twigs to write.

  • DD_Austin

    There’s letters seal’d: and my two schoolfellows,
    Whom I will trust as I will adders fang’d,
    They bear the mandate; they must sweep my way
    And marshal me to knavery. Let it work;
    For ’tis the sport to have the enginer
    Hoist with his own petar’; and ‘t shall go hard
    But I will delve one yard below their mines
    And blow them at the moon: O, ’tis most sweet,
    When in one line two crafts directly meet.

    Islam: NOT a race. NOT a religion.

    Islam has to be DENORMALIZED in our society, post haste.

    We have to be allowed to freely disparage a dangerous political ideology without fear of repercussion by the state apparatus. Would this teacher have lost his job for holding opinions about communists? or fascists? or conservative? or liberals? NO. So why is he held to a different standard for holding opinions about totalitarian supremacists?

  • Everyone, please take the time to get your favourite beverage and snack and watch this train wreck unfold. Do not take sides. Simply watch the narrative fall apart.

    A Time To Litigate.

    Sue, Sue, Sue and Sue some more. Crowdfund your case/legal bills. Call Ezra Levant. Millions of Canadians would contribute (I certainly would throw in a hundred bucks for such an effort).

  • Edubeat

    You aren’t allowed opinions in any Ontario schoolboard. If you say or tweet or blog something nasty about falavour of the day you will be blackballed and disciplined by the College of Teachers.

  • Justin St.Denis

    Remember to ALWAYS send your kids to school with a bacon and cheese sandwich and instructions to “share” if possible. 😉

  • Gary

    Christians wouldn’t send their child to that school with a bomb strapped to them , so it’s safer to appease the muslims.
    This is how Wynne and Barb Hall allowed 2 mosques in public schools.
