Teacher Refuses To Show "Mr." Trump's Inaugural Address

A fourth grade teacher in Michigan has declared that although he will show his class the live inauguration of President-Elect Donald J. Trump, he will censor Trump's actual inaugural address, citing false media reports that Trump has made derogatory statements about "minorities and the disabled."

Brett Meteyer, who teaches at Explorer Elementary School near Lansing, sent a letter to parents, leaked to a local conservative radio host, explaining why he showed the full speeches of Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush during their inauguration, but believes that President Trump is somehow different.

Dear Parents,
Because I am concerned about my students and your children being exposed to language and behavior that is not in concert with the most conservative social and family values, I have decided to show the inauguration of Donald Trump this Friday, but we will not view Mr. Trump's inauguration speech. Because every peaceful transition of power is a historic moment, I put in a request to the Trump team to preview the speech, but I have not heard back from them.
I showed the speeches of Presidents Obama and Bush in 2009 and 2005, respectively, but I am anxious about showing Mr. Trump's inaugural address, given his past inflammatory and degrading comments about minorities, women, and the disabled. I am also uneasy about Mr. Trump's casual use of profanity, so I sought an assurance that as their teacher, I would not be exposing children to language that would not appear in G- or PG-rated movies.
I do not know if Mr. Trump's speech is something that would be provided to the press or concerned citizens beforehand, but these plans may change if I hear back from them.
Brett Meteyer

In Meteyer's letter, he appeared to mock parents who held conservative views by apparently blaming them for why he is refusing to show the speech. He disingenuously warned about "Mr. Trump's" so-called "casual use of profanity." Does he really think President Trump will use profanity in his inaugural address? If he does, he obviously never should have been hired as a teacher.

This teacher must learn that such childish, obnoxious, and disrespectful behavior is not productive. In sending the letter, he probably knew it would be leaked, and assumed that he would be lionized by the liberal media for "protecting students from the vitriol of the campaign cycle." Instead, it has backfired and his name and photo is all over the internet and he is now facing calls for his firing.

The superintendent has not responded to the media firestorm over Meteyer's letter. This is why it is imperative to contact the school and district - to make them take a stand about whether or not this is acceptable. Appropriate contact information is posted below:

Indoctrination Backfires: Today's High School Students Are Most Conservative in 70 Years

Numerous studies have confirmed that the high school students of today are the most politically conservative generation in the past 70 years, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the incessant leftist and Cultural Marxist propaganda disseminated through the public school system.

The first main survey to support this conclusion was conducted by marketing firm The Guild, which interviewed 2,000 14- and 15-year-olds late last year. The conclusions of the survey were shocking. 59 percent of "Generation Z" held conservative views on same-sex marriage, "transgender rights", and the legalization of marijuana.

"According to the report, which was published in The Times, 59 percent of Generation Z respondents said they leaned toward the conservative end of the spectrum. Only the Silent Generation was more conservative than this group.By comparison, 83 percent of Millennials and 85 percent of Generation X respondents described themselves as “quite liberal” or “very lib…

Falls Church High School Administrators Distributing Anti-Trump Protest Symbols to Teachers, Students

Update 11/21/2016: An anonymous comment on, claiming to be one of the students pictured in this article, has asked for the removal of one of the images. The image was publicly posted on Twitter by the student, but to respect the privacy of the student, the image has been blurred to hide identifying facial features. 

Photos circulated via Twitter show "safety pins" distributed to students and teachers by the staff and "student leadership" (i.e. puppet government) of Falls Church High School. The "safety pin" is a symbol first used in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's historic "Brexit" vote to leave the European Union and reclaim their national sovereignty. Now, after Donald J. Trump's electoral victory, anti-Trump protesters are using the safety pin to symbolize opposition to his policies and rhetoric.

From theIndependent Journal Review: A movement has started in the U.S. of people wearing a safety pin in order to d…
