Must not say that black thugs could have been Obama's children
Even though Obama himself said that Trayvon Martin could have been his child. And she thinks ill of Muslims! How Awful!
A high school teacher from West Virginia has been suspended with pay over a litany of racially charged and anti-Muslim tweets, including some posts targeting President Barack Obama.
Mary Durstein, a social studies teacher at Huntington High School, was asked to leave the campus on Monday after district officials in Cabell County were made aware of her vitriolic social media posts and comments dating back to at least 2015.
Posting under the user name 'pigpen63,' Durstein recently weighed in on a widely covered incident out of Chicago in which four black youths allegedly tortured a special-needs teenager and broadcast the attack on Facebook Live.
The suspects, Jordan Hill, 18; Tesfaye Cooper, 18; and sisters Brittany, 18, and Tanisha Covington, 24, were ultimately arrested on hate crime charges.
Someone posted a photo of the four suspects with the caption: 'Imagine if these were 4 white people torturing a special need black kid!'
Durstein, who is white, commented on the post saying the alleged assailants 'could have been Obama’s children,' seemingly referencing the president's statement from 2013, in which he famously said that unarmed black teen Trayvon Martin, who was shot dead in Florida by George Zimmerman, 'could have been my son.'
In response to another meme calling President Obama a 'douchebag Muslim,' Durstein wrote, 'Exactly!' reported the Herald-Dispatch.
Durstein frequently targeted Muslims in her outbursts.
In a tweet dated July 18, 2015, Durstein wrote: 'Who cares if we offend Muslims at least they keep their heads on tact [sic]. They're the enemy!'
