The ultra-radical wing of the progressive left has long been exuding some horrific idea about the fate of President Trump and his administration.
It all began with self-professed D-list actress Kathy Griffin, who unfathomably stood before a professional photographer holding a realistic depiction of Donald Trump’s decapitated head. Just two weeks later, a former Bernie Sanders campaign worker opened fire on the entire GOP charity baseball team, severely wounding Louisiana Rep. Steve Scalise.
You would think that this obvious dog whistle would have served to teach the left a lesson, but quite the opposite has been true; threats against the President and his cabinet continue to pile up and grow increasingly brazen.
This week was no exception.
Students claim that a high school teacher in Waxhaw, North Carolina, told a class that Vice President Mike Pence should be “shot in the head.”
According to a local news report, a high school teacher at Cuthbertson High School told her students that Vice President Mike Pence should be “shot in the head.” The comment was allegedly made during the same week that Pence was in town to campaign for congressional elect Dan Bishop.
Authorities weren’t taking any chances with the statement.
Union County GOP Chair Allison Powers argued that it is unacceptable for a teacher to wish violence upon anyone. “To just wish that kind of violence on anybody is just way out of bounds,” Powers said in a short comment.
The local sheriff’s office claim that they have reported the teacher’s alleged remarks to the Secret Service for an investigation.
The teacher has been placed on administrative leave following the incident, the school district said in a statement, and will evaluate their future employment after the investigation into the incident has concluded.
