What This Florida Principal Said About The Holocaust Is Appalling On So Many Levels

Yikes.

A high school principal in Florida has been reassigned within his district just days after making a statement about not being able to say the Holocaust was a real, factual, historical event in an email to a concerned parent.

Anti-Semitism is becoming more common in modern-day America, a fact we’ve seen over and over again thanks to folks like Rep. Ilhan Omar and Rep. Rashida Tlaib, both of whom have made numerous hateful remarks against Jews and Israel in public with zero consequences.

Here’s more information via TheBlaze:

The Palm Beach Post reported Friday that Spanish River High School principal William Latson made controversial comments last year in email responses to an unnamed mother of a student at the school. According to the paper, the mother had reached out to Latson because she wanted to be assured that the Holocaust was taught to all students in accordance with Florida law.

In two emails published by the Post, Latson first informed the mother that “the curriculum is to be introduced but not forced upon individuals as we all have the same rights but not all the same beliefs.”

After the mother asked Latson to clarify, Latson responded, “The clarification is that not everyone believes the Holocaust happened and you have your thoughts but we are a public school and not all of our parents have the same beliefs.”

Latson explained that he has to be “politically neutral” on the issue, adding, “I can’t say the Holocaust is a factual, historical event because I am not in a position to do so as a school district employee.”

So began a yearlong battle over the details of Holocaust curriculum at the school, and over the views of Latson, who first became principal at Spanish River in 2011.

After the news broke Friday, the story hit international channels and calls began to pour in for Latson to resign.

In an email to the Post, the principal said, “I regret that the verbiage I used when responding to an email message from a parent, one year ago, did not accurately reflect my professional and personal commitment to education all students about the atrocities of the Holocaust.”

Latson added, “It is critical that, as a society, we hold dear the memory of the victims and hold fast to our commitment to counter anti-Semitism.”

So it seems what the principal was trying to say was that he believed that he could not say the Holocaust was a factual, historical event — though he apparently believes it was — because other parents might get upset if he did. In other words, he needs to leave his own personal beliefs out of it and try to stay neutral to avoid offending people.

Granted, he shouldn’t have said what he said, nor should he have tried to play neutral, but it’s easy to understand why he might want to take that route. People are so hateful toward Jews today and political correctness is so rampant it’s hard to know what you can say without offending someone.

Truth be told, however, you cannot go through your daily life without ticking someone off. Especially in our very pansy culture today. Everyone is just looking for a reason to be angry with someone else. We forget other people are imperfect human beings just like we are.

Regardless, this principal made the wrong choice and he’s clearly being dealt with for it. Now if we could just get someone, anyone, to hold Tlaib, Ocasio-Cortez, and Omar accountable for their racism and hatred, that would be great.

Confirmed: Mitt Romney Used Secret Twitter Account to Defend Himself From President Trump

What in the world?

Is Mitt Romney in junior high? What kind of grown man uses a secret Twitter account? Of course, Romney probably doesn’t tweet himself but this means he had a proxy do it for him. Same difference. It would appear as if Mitt is still pretty sore from losing the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, which he should’ve easily won. In that regard, he’s a lot like Hillary Clinton. Why the guy keeps going against President Trump in a time when the radically far-left media and Congressional Democrats won’t lay off makes little sense. But, that’s not about to trip up the Utah senator anytime soon. From Daily Wire: During an interview with The Atlantic, Romney made the revelation that he had a secret Twitter account: “That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said [emphasis added], but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of the accounts he follows, including journalists, late-night comedians (“What’s his name, the big redhead from Boston?”), and athletes. Trump was not among them. “He tweets so much,” Romney said, comparing the president to one of his nieces who overshares on Instagram. “I love her, but it’s like, ah, it’s too much.” Romney confirmed the fake account was his: Just spoke to @MittRomney on the phone, and asked him about Pierre Delecto. His only response: “C’est moi.” Updated my story accordingly: https://twitter.com/mckaycoppins/status/1186093210214510593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186093210214510593&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fa-total-loser-romney-mocked-after-using-secret-twitter-account-to-defend-himself-report-suggests Former conservative Bill Kristol posed a question on Twitter… Let’s see how much of a hellscape Twitter is.

‘Well-Connected’ Republican Tells Fox News Host There’s 20% Chance GOP Senate Removes Trump

Seems awfully high…

Fox News’ host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly “in the bag” for President Trump. Wallace has been against 45 for a good while now. On Sunday, he made a big announcement that many people may find unsettling. Apparently, a big-name Republican – who, of course, shall remain nameless – told Wallace that there’s a decent chance the GOP-controlled Senate could potentially move to impeach Trump. If true, why? Why would the GOP do such a silly, silly thing and give the left a win in a time when unemployment is at record lows and the economy is doing well? Here’s Chris… From Washington Examiner: Fox News host Chris Wallace said he was told by a well-known GOP source that there is a 1-in-5 chance President Trump will be removed from office if the Senate holds an impeachment trial. The figure came up during a conversation with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Fox News Sunday as the two discussed the controversies the Trump administration faces related to Ukraine and Syria. Wallace said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20% chance he believes — obviously, it’s just an estimate — now a 20% chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Zjtcml7lU BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reaction: The revolutionary war was fought…
