Speaking at a press conference outside Sterling High School in the Houston Independent School District, student Christian McKneely, who happens to be black, says that one of his teachers tried to bribe students into attending anti-Trump rallies by offering extra credit to anyone who attended. McKneely also stated that after he said, “That’s gay” to another student, the same teacher accused him and all Christians of being ‘homophobes.’ When he tried to call his father to tell him what happened, McKneely said the teacher punched him in the chest.
In regards to allegations that the teacher attempted to bribe students into attending anti-Trump rallies during the presidential campaign, McKneely said, “She gave extra credit for anyone who showed up for an anti-Trump rally being held downtown. I didn’t go so I didn’t get extra credit. I don’t know if anybody got it, but that’s what she proposed for extra credit.”
These incidents should alarm and anger everyone, regardless what side of the political aisle you are on. As if liberal indoctrination of students in school isn’t bad enough, now we have a teacher who actively worked to get students to adopt their political ideology by bribing them to be or at least appear to be anti-Trump.
According to KPRC, the school district said they are investigating the alleged attack on the student by the teacher, which reportedly happened last Wednesday. They released a weak, politically correct, non-statement that read, in part, as follows.
“We are continuing to work with the teacher and entire staff to ensure students are safe and teaching and learning continue uninterrupted. The safety of our students is always our absolute top priority.”
The name of the teacher in question has not yet been released.
Standing with McKneely as he spoke to the press were his family as well as Quanell X, a community activist and New Black Panther leader in Houston. EAGNews reports on an interview with Quanell X on the Matt Patrick Show, on KTRH, in August. During that interview, Quannel X applauded words spoken by Donald Trump regarding the plight of blacks in the inner city.
“We may not like the vessel that said what he said, but I ask us to truly examine what he said, because it is a fact that for 54 years, we have been voting for the Democratic party like no other race in America. And they have not given us the same loyalty and love that we have given them.”
“We as black people have to reexamine the relationship — where we are being pimped like prostitutes, and they’re the big pimps pimping us politically, promising us everything and we get nothing in return,” he said. “We gotta step back now as black people and say, we’ve gotta look at all the parties and vote our best interests.”
Will the Black Lives Matter crowd rally behind this young man in protest against violence at the hand of a teacher and attempts by the teacher to bribe students into political activity in favor of the Democrat Party?
Something tells me there will be silence from them and no wall-to-wall national media coverage of this young man’s plight.
