So much for freedom of speech!
A Pennsylvania elementary school principal is out of job, and she says it is because she posted right-leaning memes and commentary on her private social media pages.
The Daily Wire reports that, in one post, former principal Amy Sacks said she would rather vote for a potato than Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden. Sacks reportedly wrote:
“This is a potato. If this potato was running against Joe Biden, I’d vote for the potato.”
Her pro-spud/anti-democrat post, was apparently enough to cost Sacks her position at Evergreen Elementary in Monroeville, Pennsylvania, despite decades of experience as an educator.
Sacks, who had been a teacher for twenty years prior to becoming principal, says the Perkiomen Valley School District and Superintendent Barbara Russell fired her in July.
On Thanksgiving, a Facebook page called “No Left Turn in Education” shared a statement penned by Sacks. It reads:
Many of you know that I am no longer the Principal of Evergreen Elementary at this time. However, the circumstances surrounding this situation have been kept quiet until now.
I am reaching out to you today to share with you that as Principal of Evergreen Elementary School I was terminated because I expressed right of center political views — PRIVATELY.”
It goes on to say that she has filed a lawsuit against the school district in an attempt to “save her job.” Sacks wrote that she wants to also show people that they are not alone in their personal battles against the “erosion of our constitutional rights in America.”
“This cancel culture within the public school system has to stop.
I was Principal of one of the best performing elementary schools in Pennsylvania and still fell victim to being cancelled out by liberal bureaucrats who don’t believe in diversity of thought, speech, opinion, or political affiliation.”
