Moran: a super stupid individual. From the 2003 pro-Iraqi war protest sign that read “Get a brain, morans!

Patricia McAllister, the ignorant LAUSD substitute math teacher bigot who was

representing herself

at Occupy Los Angeles by saying

the Zionist Jews who are running these big banks and the Federal Reserve, which is not run by the Federal Government, they need to be run out of this country

has joined the ranks of the 12.7% of Angelenos who are unemployed. Tuesday the Los Angeles Unified School District fired McAllister. LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy issued the following statement:

As Superintendent of the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), I want to emphasize that we condemn the remarks made recently by Patricia McAllister.Her comments, made during non-work time at a recent protest rally, were her private opinions and were not made in the context of District services. At LAUSD, we recognize that the law is very protective of the freedom of speech rights of public employees when they are speaking as private citizens during non-working time.

I further emphasize to our students, who watch us and look to us for guidance, to be role models and to represent the ideals by which LAUSD lives, that we will never stand for behavior that is disrespectful, intolerant or discriminatory.

As a day-to-day substitute teacher, Ms. McAllister was an at-will employee. As of today, she is no longer an employee of the LAUSD.

Meanwhile, Fox News LA gave McAllister’s views plenty of airtime after spotted her at the LAUSD rally Tuesday, and tried to tar Occupy with a bigot brush, attmepting get someone from Occupy to speak for all of Occupy about fringe groups , free speech and the rare un-PC signage at Occupy. The reporter got frustrated when the opinions expressed were not group speak; meanwhile, back at the Fox studio, the anchors were outraged and disgusted by McAllister.
