Madison-based conservative talk-radio host Vicki McKenna, who broke the Debbie Hosking story on January 24, during her January 28 show addressed the broader lesson of the story regarding the tactics conservatives should use to redress the malignant leftism which is entrenched in much of the public educational system.
Her bottom line? Because more gentle measures have failed to stem continuing abuses, it’s time to “name names”: parents and students should work to publicly identify the worst offenders, by notifying conservative news outlets which can help expose the misconduct, and thus simultaneously build pressure for reforms and help deter future abuses.
Two segments of Hour 1 of Vicki’s show were devoted to this topic. To listen to them in their entirety, click or download here:
Part 1 (runs 2:37);
Part 2 (runs 11:29).
Some excerpts (partial transcripts to come):
Excerpt 1 (runs 3:51): Vicki recaps the story about Debbie Hosking (a public school nurse assistant who publicly mocked Gov. Scott Walker’s sons and nieces as “inbred dumbasses,” implying they are the product of incest) and provides an update (based on an article by Matt Kittle of the Wisconsin Reporter) on the failure of the responsible school officials (including gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke) to answer inquiries about Debbie Hosking’s misconduct.
So, the story was about a Sennett Middle School nursing aide named Deb Hosking. And she had posted on Governor Walker’s Facebook page, on a photograph of his kids, and his two nieces — these two darling little girls — the comment: “Who are these inbred dumbasses?” . . . She works with “special needs” kids at Sennett Middle School.
So she seems to be making a comment about the mental capacity of young kids, because she hates Governor Walker a whole bunch. . . .
Wisconsin Reporter is a great independent news outlet. They picked up the story. And they made some phone calls to Sennett Middle School and to the Metropolitan Madison School District to find out what, if anything, is going to happen to this teacher.
And remember, it was out of the Madison school district that Katy Walsh — the elementary art teacher who assigned her kindergarten and first grade students to draw art about how Scott Walker was a criminal, and belonged in jail; remember that? — that’s where she worked — in the same school district.
Asked, given what seems to be the proclivities of teachers in the Madison school district what, if anything, is going to happen to Deb Hosking, as it does violate school policy on posting inappropriate things online.
And on her Facebook page, it’s very clear, she’s very proud of the fact that she works at Sennett Middle School.
No comment coming from the district. No comment.
District spokeswoman Rachel Strauch-Nelson says we will be looking at this; we have no comment; we expect employees to follow appropriate conduct regarding social media when they are representing or associated with the district. Basically, no comment.
He asked Mary Burke — Matt Kittle, who did the story . . . asked Mary Burke . . . the same Mary Burke who’s running for governor, who also sits on the Madison school board: Well hey, Mary Burke, what do you think about this — this woman who works with “special needs” kids, seemingly making a crack about the mental capacity of children — mocking the mental capacity of children? No comment from Mary Burke!
James Howard, another liberal sop on the Madison Metropolitan School Board, said he had confidence the superintendent — another liberal who was hired out of Arnie Duncan’s squad in Chicago [Jennifer Cheatham] — was going to take care of it, and render appropriate punishment.
Ed Hughes, another member of the board, Wisconsin Reporter asked him, do you think maybe this violates anti-bullying policy here? A woman who works with “special needs” kids, bullying little kids? Bullying little kids because she hated Scott Walker! Do you think that maybe violates the district’s tough anti-bullying policy? No comment! I’ll have to think about that.
Translation: nothing happened to Katy Walsh, the art teacher who assigned her students the art lesson: draw pictures of Scott Walker in jail — and every single one of them drew the exact same picture of Scott Walker in a striped jumpsuit behind bars; every single one of those kids drew a picture of Governor Walker behind bars; and she’s saying that this just came out of their own independent imaginations.
Nothing happened to her; nothing’s going to happen to Deb Hosking.
Excerpt 2 (runs 2:15): Vicki explains the need to “call out every single teacher” who misbehaves, and to “name names on these teachers,” because they continue to misbehave on the assumption that they’ll never be called out for their misconduct.
These guys get away with it. They just get away with it. Unless you call them out! But you need to call out every single teacher — and you need to name names on these teachers.
You know, we tried, we tried the routine — let’s go back to the Union Grove — the example of Union Grove, and the civics lesson that included definitions of conservatives as hating freedom, and hating immigrants, and hating gay people, and describing liberals as people who supported your rights.
No names were named in that incident. At the time, it seemed like maybe that was the right call. But you know what? The only way the district will eventually start to recognize that this behavior has to be monitored and appropriately dealt with is if every single time you as a parent experience it, you need to name names.
You do not need to put your name on this. You can send it to me, you can send it to Wisconsin Reporter. They’ll name the names; I’ll name the names. But name the names of these teachers. They are adults; they are capable of controlling themselves; they are capable of keeping politics out of the classroom.
They choose not to, because they won’t be punished, because they won’t be punished, because you never call them on it. . . . In fact, I’m starting to think that some enterprising young web guy out there could put together a list of who these teachers are!
You know what finally stopped Benji Backer from being harassed up in Appleton — he’s that young kid; you’ve all met Benji, I hope, I think he turned 16. Because he named names and fought back, himself. He didn’t even do it anonymously. But he named names; he started to fight back. And that kid took a lot of crap for it. And kids don’t need to take crap.
You need to name the teachers’ names. You need to name the principals’ names. You need to name the administrators’ names. You need to make sure these folks are exposed. Because if you don’t, it just goes on.
Excerpt 3 (runs 2:44): Vicki reiterates that teachers feel secure that they won’t be called out, because parents will fear (rightly) that doing so will trigger reprisals against their children, so parents should proceed by supplying tips to conservative news outlets.
The only thing they have is their belief you will never fight back, because you’re worried your kids will be punished — and no kidding, you should worry you kids will be punished, that’s why I want you to do it anonymously — because look what happened . . . look what happened to kids who have been, like Benji.
Look what this cretin does on Governor Walker’s Facebook page. And she works with kids! Look what she was willing to do! She works with “special needs” children! Names. Expose it! You have to be responsible as a professional adult.
You want to know the only thing that might, that might save those idiot liberal parents in Middleton — and I say idiot liberal parents because they voted 64 percent to recall Scott Walker, in the recall election, who are now complaining that the same school board they elected with over a 70 percent liberal margin, over 70 percent of the electorate, voted in a school board whose entire purpose was to protect the unions and the collective bargaining process that delivered them the porn teacher in the first place.
The only thing they’ve got going for them right now is exposing and naming the names. It’s the only thing they’ve got going for them. And it is what might eventually get them out of the nightmare they’re dealing with right now, which is a teacher surfing porn on school time, and being told by the union their kids don’t matter!
Let me tell you something, conservative moms and dads. If the union and the union toadies on the school board — any school board in this state — put the union first, if you look at Middleton, they put the porn-surfing teacher above the kids — do you think they’re not going to do the same thing when it comes to filthy, bullying comments about beautiful young kids on Facebook, or indoctrinating your kids into believing their parents are bad people, because their parents voted for Scott Walker, or their parents voted for Mitt Romney? Do ya?
Do you think that there will be any question what side the administration, the board, will fall on? Certainly you know where the union stands. Name the names. Deb Hosking . . . I fully believe Wisconsin Reporter will dog this story, as they have continued to dog the Katy Walsh story — but so far, no solutions have been forthcoming. Because again, the protectionist racket of the labor unions is maintained by the government itself.
Excerpt 4 (runs 0:50): Vicki summarizes how to contact her with tips about misbehaving teachers.
You can e-mail me, you can Facebook message me. If you’re not a “friend” on my Facebook page, that’s hard, so direct message me on Twitter, e-mail me [firstname.lastname@example.org], call me at my office [(608) 321-1310]. There’s all kinds of ways to get hold me of me. . . .
And your subject line, put: “TEACHER,” put ‘SCHOOLS,” or put “ANGRY MOM,” or “ANGRY DAD,” or, you know, “FILTHY LEFT-WING NEO-COMMIE ATTACKS MY KID,” or whatever you wanna put in that. . . .
