It’s illegal to discriminate against people based on their race, religion, and gender, but one Utah teacher thinks it’s fine to segregate students who support the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms. A teaching assistant at the University of Utah has created a small space in the back of the classroom where any student legally carrying a firearm will be banished to. There is no desk in this “zone of shame” because f*ck anyone who dares to exercise a Constitutionally protected right.
Fox News reports:
A graduate teaching assistant has been criticized after trying to alienate and target students who conceal carry weapons in her classroom, labelling them as “absurd, antisocial, and frightening” and forcing them to stand in a “3X3 taped square.”
“If you feel that it is somehow at all appropriate to bring a gun to class (hint: it is not…),” the controversial University of Utah teacher wrote in a section of her syllabus, then the students would be forced to stand in a “Second Amendment zone.”
While the public school instructor acknowledged the students’ right to bear arms, she claimed she has the “right to restrict elements of the Second Amendment in my own classroom” like a “free speech zone.” The assistant said those students would be forced to stand in a “3×3 taped square on the floor in the very back of the classroom…This zone does not include a desk because desks are reserved for students who respect the personal and psychological safety of their classmates and instructor.”
This all seems very dumb, but what liberal nonsense doesn’t? Just for argument’s sake, let’s say there was a student carrying a firearm who was a danger to the teacher and the class and meant them harm. Does making that student stand in a small taped-off zone prevent him or her from opening fire on the class? Is this some kind of magic tape that puts up an invisible bullet-proof barrier?
Then there is the fact that any student exercising his or her right to carry a firearm would make the entire class much safer in the unlikely event of a a real school shooter. But hey, liberals don’t put a lot of thought into their hysteria.
Amazingly enough, this anti-gun/anti-freedom BS didn’t sit well with the university:
The university immediately responded and reprimanded the teaching assistant for violating campus policy and state law, which both allow students to conceal carry.
“The statement has been removed from the syllabus and students in the class have been alerted to the error. The graduate student instructor has apologized and has received additional training about the university’s policies. The student instructor will not teach this semester and will instead have other assignments,” said University of Utah spokesman Chris Nelson.
I wish we could see or hear that apology. Liberal apologies are so passive aggressive. I’m sure it was something like, “I’m sorry you support an outdated right that kills millions of people every year. I won’t let it happen again, Nazi.”
I am kind of shocked that this teaching assistant was “reassigned.” Usually leftist insanity is rewarded at institutes of higher learning. It’s probably due to the fact that this university is in Utah, because in almost any other state the teacher would have been praised for being courageous and given a promotion.
