Yes, everyone is entitled to an opinion, but in reality, we all know that some opinions are "more equal" than others. Anyone who suggests that people of her "minority status" should be run out of this country would be considered ineligible to teach kids. I predict she will suffer no ill effects from her oh-so-public statement....
Update, 10/19/11: According to Andrew Breitbart, I was wrong:
Substitute teacher Patricia McAllister was fired for saying the "Zionist Jews" who are running our banks "need to be run out of this country."
In defending herself, McAllister reiterated her belief that Jews are "destroying this nation."
Update #2, 10/19/11: EIA has more:
The Los Angeles Unified School District summarily fired McAllister for her remarks. Evidently this is permitted, even though substitutes can become members of United Teachers Los Angeles and are covered by a number of provisions in the collective bargaining agreement...
Since Ms. McAllister was so vocal and direct with her opinions, even in light of the consequences and the media glare, my question is this: Did she never before express these views to her co-workers or superiors? If she did, why wasn’t she fired earlier?
My sense is that you can spout this stuff and suffer no more than office ostracism, unless you do so in front of the cameras.
