Another Crack in the PC Coalition?

An African-American public school teacher in L.A. is fired for anti-Zionist comments.


Patricia McAllister, a substitute teacher in Los Angeles was recently caught making the following anti-Semitic statement at the Occupy Los Angeles protest:

“Patricia McAllister, I’m here representing myself but I do work for the Los Angeles Unified School District. I think that the Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and our Federal Reserve — which is not run by the federal government — they need to be run out of this country.”

Zombie online now reveals that McAllister has in fact lost her job with the school district:

L.A. teacher loses job over anti-Semitic comments

Los Angeles school officials say a substitute teacher has lost her job after making anti-Semitic comments during an interview.

In a statement Tuesday, schools Superintendent John Deasy condemned remarks made by Patricia McAllister during a protest rally last week.

In an Oct. 12 interview with Reason.com at a Los Angeles rally, McAllister said “Zionist Jews and the Federal Reserve” need to be run out of this country.

Deasy says that although freedom of speech is a protected right of public employees, the LAUSD can’t set a good example for students while tolerating disrespectful, intolerant or discriminatory behavior.

  1. Couldn’t she have been fired for making idiotic comments rather than bigoted ones? Because these weren’t very bigoted comments (if at all), yet they were very stupid.

  2. She’s obviously not a very bright or articulate person. She is a Los Angeles public school teacher, after all, so we can’t expect but so much.

    What I think is most significant about his, however, is that being a minority does not shield one from the repercussions of being politically incorrect. It’s not even a question of whether what she said is true or not. If anything, I’ve noticed that the PC Left has an even more hateful and intolerant view of minorities who violate PC taboos than they do of official oppressors (“straight white males” et. al.).
