Thu Oct 13, 2016, 07:55 PM

My 11-yr old called Donald Trump a bigot in his class today.


Context: So I live in the deep south, but in a coastal city and send my kid to private school. That makes for a solid nice polite republican crowd.

His class was discussing vocabulary words and one of the words was bigot. The teacher asked for an example of a bigot. My son raised his hand and said, "Donald Trump."

Apparently, the whole class erupted in laughter including the teacher. We just might take Georgia.

And I'm very proud of my son. He's been listening to me and his mother and/or paying attention himself.

3. I told him I thought he was brave for saying that in class and that he was correct.


Hopefully there won't be any inappropriate push back as we get close to the election.

2. As a substitute teacher I hear kids trashing Cheeto all the time

But I live in a liberal city so it's not surprising.

16. Good

 

It seems like the only kids we here about are the Orange Hitler Youth.

Makes me feel better to see not all kids are buying that bullshit.

5. I, until recently, taught overseas. I called Trump the Orange haired baboon in class to

 

massive agreement.

People I know all over Asia message me all the time asking how Americans can be so stupid to like that man. I just say "stupid is as stupid does."

8. Are you voting for Hillary?

Just asking because of your black "H."

Are you working to help Hillary win in GA?

12. Ok, but who are you voting for? The black H with arrow is my show of support for HRC.


I put it up after the primary. Is there an issue with the color black?

Who else uses a black arrow-H?

15. The black H has been used by others to show mourning, displeasure

with our nominee. They spread around pretty quickly after the primaries, just when you say you took on yours. That's the issue with the color black. It's been used by some in cowardly way, in my opinion, to "protest" our fantastic nominee.

The second my ballot lands in my hot hands, I'm marking it for HRC and straight ticket Dems.

I'm giving as much as we can spare.

I'm making calls for HRC.

I won't name any other posters on DU using the black H. Some of them are rightfully PPR'd, but calling out other DU'ers is neither fair nor permissible, and imo, the black H's shouldn't be either.

I am pleased to hear that you will vote for HRC.
