On Nov. 29, 2016, a public school teacher in Wisconsin went on Facebook and criticized her own students as “racist” and “intolerant,” and predicated that in class the next day her students would push back against her liberal whitewash of Islam. (more…)

Late in the evening of Nov. 22, this blog reported on a Nov. 18 call to Vicki McKenna’s Madison (WIBA) afternoon show by a caller who identified himself as Matt. Matt complained that the Marshall, WI, school district had banned his six-year-old son from bringing a “Rush Revere” book to class, on the basis that such material was “inappropriate.”

This blogger reported on the call only after waiting four days, and only after first checking with Vicki to determine that there was no update to the story.  (more…)

Vicki McKenna & 2 random WI dudes

Update 1: Welcome, Gateway Pundit (Jim Hoft) readers!

Update 2: Welcome, Rush Limbaugh fans! (Transcript here; Rush’s FB post & his fans’ comments here; video to be added later.) [11/26 update: video w/ Rush excerpts, and much more, here, and embedded below.] Thanks to both Rush and Bo Snerdley for the shout out!

Update 3: After four days of doing nothing to rebut the Nov. 18 complaint by a parent, on Vicki McKenna’s show, that Marshall schools have banned “Rush Revere” books as “inappropriate,” today at 1:16 p.m. (Central time) the Marshall school district posted this comment asserting that it had investigated the matter and had concluded that the parent made a “false report.” The district also posted its statement on various Facebook pages (here, here, and here). The district’s statement is somewhat cryptic and, as Vicki has noted, it has responded to the controversy in an odd, even bizarre, manner (for example, by never talking to her, or to the dad, during its “investigation”; by  hanging up on her when she called to ask for clarification concerning the statement; and by involving a police officer in the matter, even though no crime is plausibly involved). Detailed questions have been put to the district, both by Vicki (here) and by this blogger (here). This blogger will supply an update by early next week, after ensuring that the district has a full and fair opportunity to respond.

Update 4: The Marshall high school principal, Brian Sniff (@PrincipalSniff), has confirmed in a Facebook comment that the district administrator (Dr. Barbara Sramek) will certainly be happy to speak with Vicki when school starts up again after the holiday, this coming Monday.

Update 5: This blogger just noticed (Nov. 28, 9:30 a.m.) that on Nov. 25, a response by Dr. Sramek to Vicki’s questions was posted on at least three Facebook pages maintained by the district, here, here, and here. Despite a school district employee having previously written this blogger (on Nov. 25), no one e-mailed to alert this blogger to Dr. Sramek’s statement. Nor did anyone post a comment on this blog noting the statement. There is no indication in Dr. Sramek’s statement that it was e-mailed to Vicki McKenna. This blogger looks forward to the fruits of the conversation Dr. Sramek promised last Wednesday (via a subordinate) to have with Vicki today, now that school has resumed.

Two years ago Wisconsin talk-radio host Vicki McKenna broke a story, which quickly went national, about Wisconsin school officials who bullied an 11-year-old boy, threatening to expel him for bringing a “virtual gun” to his virtual (i.e., home) school. His offense? Displaying a tiny picture of a gun, with an American flag, on the computer which he used only at home — an image viewable by no other student. See blog posts here, here, and here.

Now Vicki has broken the story of Wisconsin school officials who are bullying a 6-year-old boy. (more…)

In an interview yesterday by Laura Ingraham (h/t Don Surber), former federal prosecutor Joseph diGenova predicted that because of the e-mail scandal which has enveloped her, Hillary Clinton is “not going to be able to complete her campaign,” because either:

(1) the Department of Justice will charge Hillary with a crime; or

(2) the Attorney General will refuse to charge Hillary, triggering a massive revolt by officials at the FBI, and in the military and intelligence communities, and a scandal on par with the Watergate coverup. (more…)

Contrary to what the liberal media claim, Donald Trump never mocked anyone for being disabled. But liberal icon John Lennon did. Here’s the proof.

Thanks to Blake Neff of the Daily Caller, the world knows the name of “Shrieking Girl” — the Yale student caught on video on Nov. 5 screaming profanities at the professor in charge of her college (Silliman College) for his refusal to apologize for failing to protect her from offensive Halloween costumes. Her name is Jerelyn Luther. (more…)
