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.

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.

Save conservative media!

Here Is A List Of President Joe Biden’s Day 1 Executive Orders

And it begins…

President Joe Biden. Vice President Kamala Harris. Both titles have a certain ugliness when put in front of those two names. My goodness, America. What have we done? From The Daily Wire: Future White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain released a memo Saturday detailing President-elect Joe Biden’s plans to make good on his campaign promises in the first few hours of his presidency. The memo, sent to incoming senior staff and obtained by The New York Times, states that Biden will address the “four crises” facing the nation: Covid-19, the economy, the climate and racial inequity. The actions expand on the Biden campaign’s message of “build back better” and claim to “reverse the gravest damages of the Trump administration” while moving the country forward. CONTINUED: On Inauguration Day, Biden will sign twelve executive orders that directly respond to these four “crises,” with additional directives spread out over a ten-day period. Included in this group are plans to re-join the Paris Climate Agreement, reverse the so-called “Muslim Ban” restricting travel from certain countries, extend the pause on student loan payments and continue current restrictions on foreclosures and evictions. The first day of Biden’s presidency will also mark the beginning of the “100 Day Masking Challenge,” with a mask mandate taking effect for people traveling between states and visiting federal property.

McConnell to Trump: If You Pardon Julian Assange, We’re ‘More Likely to Convict You’ [Report]

He said what!?

As soon as it was learned that President Trump had no chance of being re-elected, Mitch McConnell started bashing POTUS pretty hard. Heck, the Kentucky Republican even blamed Trump for the Capitol riot. But if what Tucker Carlson is saying is true, it goes to show that the Senate Majority Leader was never really in Trump’s corner to begin with. WATCH: https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351704268563075072?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351707348373557253%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es2_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F https://twitter.com/danielchaitin7/status/1351707348373557253 https://twitter.com/adamgoldmanNYT/status/1351721466803445762?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351721466803445762%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.thegatewaypundit.com%2F2021%2F01%2Fmitch-mcconnell-reportedly-threatened-president-trump-pardon-julian-assange-much-likely-convict-impeachment-trial-video%2F Despite everything POTUS accomplished in just four years, Trump still gets little to no respect from members of his own party. From Fox News: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports Democrats’ move to initiate impeachment proceedings against President Trump and is “done” and “furious” with him, sources familiar told Fox News. It is unclear how McConnell would vote in an impeachment trial, should House Democrats vote to impeach Trump. It is not clear at this point whether McConnell would vote to convict. CONTINUED: One source told Fox News that McConnell has not made up his mind about what to do about impeachment, and does not see this as a partisan exercise like the previous impeachment effort against Trump. Another source told Fox News that McConnell told associates that impeachment will help rid the Republican Party of Trump and his movement. Sounds like things are shaking up to be a little crazy before Trump leaves office. The guy can’t have a moment of peace. History will remember everything the Trump Administration accomplished in a positive light, though. Disagree?
