Math teacher loses job after defending Western Civilization

A patriotic teacher from commiefornia? Endtime is near.

A math teacher says she has lost her job at a private school in Southern California for speaking out in defense of Western Civilization — even though she made her comments outside the classroom.

Dr. Karen Siegemund, president of the Los Angeles-based American Freedom Alliance, gave a speech in May at the group’s “Long March Through the Institutions” conference, which “explored the Left’s ongoing multi-decade takeover attempt of numerous public and private institutions to effect a radical transformation of America.”

During her speech, she said “each of us here believes in the unparalleled force for good that is Western Civilization, that is our heritage, whether we were born here or not.”

Shortly thereafter she said she was informed that her teaching contract at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a private K-12 school, would not be renewed.

“It’s kind of shocking, isn’t it,” Siegemund told Mike Huckabee in a recent interview about the experience, noting she has been a teacher for almost 20 years.

“Because of my outside activities, I was told my contract would not be renewed. I praised Western Civilization, and how it’s brought the greatest good to the most number of people, and we are all its beneficiaries, including those not even from here, and that was deemed hostile,” she said.

Huckabee said he thought there might be something more to the story: “Surely you did not just get fired just because you believe in Western Civilization?”

“No, I did,” she replied.

“I see myself as an educator,” Siegemund added, “and I want all my students to learn critical thinking, to explore, to be skeptical, to value those things that we value, to grow as an individual, that’s always been my stance, which I guess is also problematic. Because there are other teachers who denigrate the president in the classroom, who wear ‘resist’ T-shirts, who promote all kinds of various leftist policies in the classroom — that’s apparently fine — because their contracts have been renewed.”

“I even hesitated to wear anything with an American flag, not hesitated — I did not wear anything with an American flag on it — for fear of that being sort of too subversively patriotic … But I have promoted freedoms and independent thought.”

Apparently the conference might have been the final straw. But Siegemund has launched a GoFundMe page and says she plans to fight the “unfair termination.”

“I am just standing up for what I believe is right,” she told Huckabee.

I suspect California just lost another great teacher because I have little doubt but that she’ll get buried in offers from out of state.

But the American Freedom Alliance would lose a great President. Oh well, the state deserves being abandoned by its patriotic citizens anyway.

Why would the alliance lose her? I don’t think CA residency is required is it?

I don’t know anything about AFA, read their site. Interesting top level goals.

Reason #17,378 that we homeschool.

The LA chapter, I meant.

Ahh, makes sense. Maybe she can be of better use in another state organization or at the national level?

Are you suggesting that the AFA supports homeschooling?

Anyway, two things will be interesting to learn. How many wingers make this a rich woman with their hard earned money via her GFMP, and what reason the school presents for firing her, in court.

Did you read their top level goals?

Do so, before you even try to interpret my post.

Another great example!!

No I did not and didn’t claim to have. But was asking a question based upon you’re citation of reason number 17,000 to homeschool and apparently misunderstanding your point…:man_shrugging:
