A man who was named the “National Teacher of the Year” back in 2019 by the Council of Chief State School Officers recently tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s neighbors should rip a page out of the playbook the neighbor who assaulted Sen. Rand Paul and violently attack McConnell.
According to Rodney Robinson this would make such an individual a “true Kentucky hero.”
The neighbor who assaulted Sen. Paul left him with six broken ribs which made it necessary for doctors to remove a part of his lung.
Robinson tweeted, “Who are Mitch McConnell’s neighbors? I’m just saying Rand Paul’s neighbor did what a true Kentucky hero should do. It’s your turn to step up.”

Paul’s wife Kelly Ashby Paul issued a fiery response, tweeting, “I am so disgusted by this I have no words. The 2019 ‘National teacher of the Year’ is celebrating the violent assault on my husband that resulted in 6 broken ribs and part of his lung being removed. This hateful thug is calling for more violence on Sen McConnell.”Advertisement - story continues below
Robinson eventually deleted the tweet and posted a response to the backlash, which he blamed on “conservative bots“: “I made a Mitch McConnell joke today and the conservative bots are real angry. It’s funny because the joke was made early today and no one said a thing until I promoted black medical awareness.”
When he was awarded Teacher of the Year in 2019, the Council of Chief State School Officers said of Robinson, “He creates a positive school culture by empowering his students – many of whom have experienced trauma – to become civically minded social advocates who use their skills and voices to affect physical and policy changes at their school and in their communities,” CNN noted.
Notice how after he was called out for his hateful joke and rhetoric he immediately pivoted to blaming the whole thing on racism?
That’s a clear indication this fellow of low class realized he said something he shouldn’t have and was none too happy about being called out for it. Too bad.
One of the great things about social media is the court of public opinion can hold a person accountable for saying stupid, evil things. Robinson should be reprimanded in every way possible for his comments.
There’s no excuse for calling for violence against one another just because we disagree on politics.
And to think….this man is shaping the minds of future generations.
