High school teacher, who forced students to turn their MAGA T-shirts inside out, resigns

Ellen Eldrige of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that yesterday, October 19, 2017, Lyn Orletsky, a math teacher at River Ridge High School in Canton, Georgia,  tendered her resignation to the school board.

Last month, Orletsky was put on administrative leave after a video surfaced of her telling two students wearing “Make America Great Again (MAGA)” T-shirts to leave her classroom unless they turn the T-shirts inside out.

Orletsky equates “MAGA” to the swastika because, according to her, the slogan had been used by alleged neo-Nazis during the rally in Charlottesville, Va.

The school district quickly apologized and said while disciplinary action against Orletsky wouldn’t be disclosed, the students weren’t in trouble.

On October 18, Orletsky released a statement blaming “threats on my life” for her decision to resign:

“After attacks on my character and threats on my life, I have made the decision to resign from my teaching position at River Ridge High School. While in hindsight I would have handled the situation differently, the outcry over this incident has been disproportionate to the event itself.”

Cherokee County Schools spokeswoman Barbara Jacoby said Nov. 1 would be Orletsky’s last day if the board accepts her resignation.

  5. My first thought is that the “threats on her life” are fabricated. Like the lefties who paint swastikas on their houses and then call in the hate crime. HER tactics were fascist; those of us on the right are more likely to pray for her than to threaten her.

    Must have the same snakes in her head as that fredrica wilson dingbat. If she wore the same kinda hat I’d think may be they were hiding their snake hair.

    What the heck is wrong with these people who don’t want to make this U.S.A. better.

  10. Orletsky said the students wore the shirts shortly after the violence in Charlottesville, where many hate groups had hijacked the “Make America Great Again” slogan.

    When asked what her reaction would have been if the students wore “I’m With Her” Hillary Clinton shirts, she said it had nothing to do with politics. […]

  11. She exhibits the behavior of a mentally ill person, as do most on the anarchist left. She should not have been allowed around school children. And yet, I’d bet MANY are in such positions of power and danger.

  12. This is about the fundamental clash they’ve designed. By “they” I mean their owners. They do not want the society we want. They want “others” (namely the Central Committee), to Okay all behaviors. They are intolerant and vindictive.

    We cannot have a wholesome society that respects the will of others and their vision concurrently. They are diametric opposites. Anything that threatens their little playpen existence is abhorrent to them.

    She’s clearly insane. It is criminal that people like her are allowed to teach in public schools. A pedophile may be after the kid’s bodies, people like her are after their minds.

  14. She claims threats against her character, I have to ask, what character?
    She was a misplaced liberal.

  15. Georgia already has a critical shortage of math teachers. I’m a retired engineer and I was recently asked to take a position on a provisional teaching certificate. I turned the offer down. I don’t work in war zones.

  16. She said she could have “handled the ‘situation’ differently.” Let’s be clear here…there was NO “SITUATION” until she chose to “zero in on” those 2 kids in the MAGA T-shirts &, during paid public school instruction time, used that instruction time to make it her business to censor 2 under-aged students whose political expression differed with her own beliefs/positions. SHE CREATED THE “SITUATION” out of whole cloth. She truly deserves the JACKASS icon/symbol of her personally revealed/expressed party affilliation. In fact, I think we should give her a “JACKASS OF THE MONTH” award for displaying, in a public (tax-payer paid-for) place, the most affected “Trump Aversion Syndrome.”
