Poster Girl From Occupy LA Needs a Job

This idiot who was made famous last week for her insane anti-Semitic drivel has discovered the painful lesson that with freedom of speech comes responsibility.

It appears Patricia McAllister should have made sure she had tenure before spewing her bilge.

Los Angeles school officials say a substitute teacher has lost her job after making anti-Semitic comments during an interview.

In a statement Tuesday, schools Superintendent John Deasy condemned remarks made by Patricia McAllister during a protest rally last week.

In an Oct. 12 interview with Reason.com at a Los Angeles rally, McAllister said “Zionist Jews and the Federal Reserve” need to be run out of this country.

Deasy says that although freedom of speech is a protected right of public employees, the LAUSD can’t set a good example for students while tolerating disrespectful, intolerant or discriminatory behavior.

McAllister should take some time to reflect on why she’s now unemployed. Perhaps some “sensitivity training” and “tolerance” seminars would do her some good. Yet we doubt that’s what will be happening.

Instead, she’ll channel her anger and rage toward those responsible: The Zionists!

It won’t be long until she partners up with the ACLU and announces a $100 billion lawsuit for infringing upon her right to be a creep.

I hope Democrats and their “occupier” mob are happy. Unfortunately for Obama, this won’t count as a job saved or created. Democrats who have embraced this pathetic movement have said nary a peep about the ugliness we’re seeing on a daily basis. The media seemingly has little interest in holding their feet to the fire.

But the GOP notices.

Democratic leaders have spent the last week championing the “Occupy Wall Street” movement, yet in the midst of protestors’ extreme anti-Semitic, anti-Israel comments, they’ve been silent.

Where’s the outrage?  While protestors are seen spewing hate against Jewish Americans, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman  Schultz have declared their support for the demonstrations.  Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Chair Steve Israel even circulated a petition saying he’s “standing with” Occupy Wall Street.

Is Steve Israel standing with those calling for the killing of Jews?  Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz agree with the various calls for Jews to be “run out of this country” and to oppose and “destroy” the state of Israel? 

Democrats were quick to single out any instances of perceived extremism among Tea Party supporters, but with Occupy Wall Street, they turn a blind eye.  President Obama claimed last weekend that Martin Luther King would support the demonstrations.  But surely Dr. King would have called out these ugly displays of bigotry.

Wasserman-Schultz is a ubiquitous presence on television. A real shame nobody bothers to ask her about this.
