Washington, DC — Wednesday’s crowd in Washington, DC was estimated to have exceeded 100,000 Americans to peacefully assemble and listen to a speech from the President of the United States of America. All but a handful of the attendees dispersed peacefully. However, nothing done by the people who carried the demonstration into the US Capitol takes away from the legality and propriety of attending a political rally headlined by the president.
Unfortunately, faculty and staff members in Jefferson County, WV just found out that it doesn’t matter if the voters in that county voted overwhelmingly to reelect President Trump, all it takes to put your livelihood in jeopardy is to have a bigoted and fascist school superintendent who is completely ignorant of the provisions in the US Constitution. These educators are now in jeopardy of losing their jobs.
Nearly 30 teachers in Jefferson County, West Virginia that attended the rally at the Capitol in Washington DC on Wednesday are now being threatened with termination.
A letter was sent to the teachers by the Jefferson County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Bondy Shay Gibson. In the letter, the teachers are told to report to a meeting on Tuesday, January 12, 2021, where disciplinary action, including termination, will be discussed. The teachers are encouraged to bring a representative with them. The teachers were also told to not enter any Jefferson County School’s property or attend any school activity.
According to another source, this is what the letter said:
“I was made aware that you took part in the Electoral College protest that erupted into deadly violence on January 6, 2021. I have reviewed disturbing videos and photographs posted that tagged you on a public social media page, which included threatening and demeaning statements regarding federal government officials.”
The letters went on to say, “I understand that many community members are upset by these images. Accordingly, I have determined that you are on administrative leave with pay effective immediately pending additional investigation.”
The letter went on to indicate that the employees should schedule a meeting Tuesday with Gibson and bring a representative as disciplinary action including “the termination of your employment” is possible.
This is illegal. It doesn’t matter who in “the community” participated in the event and by the images that have spread around the globe. However, being upset with this does not give anyone a heckler’s veto. Attending a political rally is a constitutionally protected activity under the 1st amendment. Unless Superintendent Bondy Shay Gibson has evidence that someone was involved in a criminal act, she is clearly carrying out political intimidation.
The letter also shows that the school’s superintendent has authorized the surveillance of social media accounts belonging to employees in order to keep tabs on their activities. There is no other way the names of people merely tagged in posts and images would have come to her attention.
Look forward to more of this as the left feels emboldened to purge from public life anyone who does not hew to their orthodoxy. If this kind of thing happens in a dark red county, life will be hell elsewhere unless we stand up.
Many people across the country were looking forward to the calendar transitioning from 2020, but little did we know that this isn’t really 2021, but rather January 1984.

Where Do Conservatives Go From Here
Special runoff elections were held in Georgia and while the mainstream media and pollsters were working together saying it was a sure Democrat win, the election was much closer than they believed it would be. Just as they did in the general election, they told us they would win by 5-10 points, but that never happened.
