Watch: Dad Walks Into Daughter’s Classroom, Immediately Sees Something Disturbing Hanging On The Wall

Outrage erupted at a Kentucky high school after several parents found anti-police artwork on display in their children’s classroom.

According to a report by WLKY, the artwork was the product of an honors English class assignment at North Oldham High School. Students were asked to read To Kill A Mockingbird, then draw pictures showing what they believed to be social injustice.

The artwork that sparked the outrage depicts a Klu Klux Klan member in 1930 about to shoot a black man alongside a picture of a police officer shooting a black child in 2015. It was drawn by a student in a previous year’s class.

 

But some parents and local residents haven’t accepted this response and are calling for the images to be taken down.

“I do think it’s a little dramatic, and right now it is a very touching time to have something like that come up,” said David Byrd. “They risk their lives for this job and our communities. Cops aren’t killers, they defend our safety. That’s my opinion about it.”

One of the parents upset about the artwork is David Hamblin, a local police offer. His daughter is a student in the class.

“My daughter is not unlike other children of first responders. Hamblin posted on Facebook. “She fears for my safety every day, and believes me to be a man of honesty and courage. What this propaganda creates, are future cop haters, which endanger me, and 800,000 other courageous protectors.”

“When I saw it, I could see immediately why [my daughter] didn’t feel comfortable with it, because I didn’t feel comfortable with it,” Hamblin told WDRB in an interview Wednesday. “It’s comparing a race-based ideology, or the KKK, to that of professional workers who serve their country day-in and day-out. There’s propaganda and there’s the First Amendment. They’re two different things, especially in a government-run classroom.”

North Oldham High School responded to the concerns with the following statement. “We believe that our role as educators is to prepare our kids for the world beyond the classroom, and sometimes things are going to be controversial,” said Tracy Green, the director of communications for Oldham County Schools.

“They’re pictures about social injustice, so I would assume they’re a little offensive to a lot of people, because we’re talking about a controversial issue,” Green continued.

While the school says it understands the anger, and that these images are in no way meant to diminish the service police perform, the images will not be coming down.

Trump And Rubio Had An Epic Debate Battle. Then Rubio Sent The Crowd Into A Frenzy With 5 Words

About half way through the final Republican debate, an entertaining moment occurred when Marco Rubio took the offensive against Trump’s healthcare proposal.

Pressing Donald to explain his healthcare proposal, Rubio asked, “What is your plan [Donald], I understand the lines around the states, whatever that means, this is not a game where you draw maps around, what is your plan?”

“You know I watched him melt down two weeks ago with Chris Christie, I gotta tell ya, the biggest problem he’s got is he doesn’t know about the lines … the reason we have no competition is because we have lines around the state,” said Trump.

“So you’re only thing is to get rid of the lines around the states, what else is part of your plan? I’ll give him time of mine so he can tell us his plan,” said Rubio.

“When you get rid of the lines it brings in competition, you’ll have many, they’ll compete, and it’ll be a beautiful thing,” responded Trump.

But Rubio continued to push Trump for something specific and more detailed than just removing the lines. “You’ll have competition, you’ll have so many different plans,” explained Trump.

In a surprising moment of humor Marco said with a grin, “but now he’s repeating himself,” clearly referencing his own blunder at the previous debate.

“No, no, I don’t repeat myself,” Trump said, looking irritated. “Here’s the guy who repeats himself,” Trump exclaimed, pointing at Rubio.

“You don’t repeat yourself?” Rubio asked now visibly laughing. “You repeat yourself everyday.”

“Talking about repeating, I watched him repeat himself five times four weeks ago,” responded Trump.

“And I saw you repeat yourself five times five seconds ago,” said Rubio. “I see him repeat himself every night, he says five things. Everyone is dumb, gonna make America great again, we’re gonna win win win, he’s winning in the polls, and the lines around the state,” Marco finished to a thundering applause from the crowd.

The same back and forth continued a little longer, but if the crowd’s reaction was any indication, it seems as if Rubio scored some points against Trump this time around.

Trump Got WAY Personal With Cruz At Debate… Then Cruz Dropped A Bombshell

Following the initial debate on immigration, Trump and Cruz found themselves going at it again, this time over who would do better in Washington.

“I’ve had an amazing relationship with politicians, both Democrat and Republican, because I was a businessman … I got along with everybody. You get along with nobody,” Trump said, pointing at Cruz.

Trump continued, “you don’t have one Republican, you don’t have one Republican senator and you work with them every day of your life … but you don’t have one Republican senator backing you, not one, you don’t have the endorsement of one Republican senator and you work with these people, you should be ashamed of yourself.”

Cruz didn’t take this lying down and hit back at Trump hard. “You know I actually think Donald is right, he is promising if he’s elected he will go and cut deals in Washington. And he’s right, he has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to Democrats.”

But it didn’t stop there for Cruz, “Anyone who really cared about illegal immigration wouldn’t be hiring illegal immigrants. Anyone who really cared about illegal immigration wouldn’t be funding Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, wouldn’t be funding the Gang of Eight.”

“And you know, he is right, when you stand up to Washington, when you honor the promise you have made to the men and women who elected you and say enough with the corruption, enough with the cronyism, lets actually stand for the working men and women of this country, Washington doesn’t like it. And Donald, if you wanna be liked in Washington, that’s not a good attribute for a president,” said Cruz.

Donald had the final word, mocking Ted Cruz as “Robin Hood” who was going to stand against corruption while also taking loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank.

“This is Robin Hood, he talks about corruption, on his financial disclosure form he didn’t even put that he’s borrowed money from Citibank and Goldman Sachs … he just left it off and now he’s going to protect the people from the big bad banks,” Trump exclaimed.

While it is true that Cruz has taken loans from Goldman Sachs and Citibank, he has addressed these allegations in the past, claiming the loans were disclosed through multiple sources.

GOP Candidates Debate Amnesty

In the first heated segment of the night, Donald Trump, Marco Rubio, and Ted Cruz went at it over the topic of illegal immigration, with each candidate claiming they were the strongest opponents of amnesty.

The initial question – leveled at Trump – asked if he supported amnesty due to his claims that the “good ones [illegals]” will come back under his plan.

“We have at least 11 million people in this country that came in illegally. They will go out, they will come back, some will come back, the best, through a process … it may not be a very quick process, but I think that’s very fair and very fine,” said Trump.

Cruz responded to this by citing the dramatic benefits the state of Arizona has seen since they adopted tough laws on illegal immigrants, which has caused illegals to flee the state.

“The dollars they [Arizona] are spending on welfare, on prison, on education, all of those have dropped by hundreds of millions of dollars, and the Americans, and for that matter the legal immigrants who are in Arizona, are seeing unemployment drop, are seeings wages rise, that’s who we should be fighting for,” said Cruz.

Most importantly, Cruz voiced his opinion that it would be unfair to reward any lawlessness on behalf of illegal immigrants, regardless of whether they are the best. “I think it is a mistake to forgive those who break law, to allow them to become U.S. citizens, and that’s why I’ve led the fight against granting citizenship to those here illegally,” Cruz said.

Trump responded to this by citing his recent endorsement by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona, who is largely regarded as “America’s toughest sheriff.”

“Well, I’m very glad that Ted mentioned Arizona, because probably the toughest man on borders is Sheriff Joe Arpaio, and two days ago, he totally endorsed me, so thank you,” Trump responded.

Not to miss an opportunity to jab both his top opponents, Marco Rubio claimed that Cruz was not always tough on immigration, but more importantly that Donald Trump has made a practice of hiring and rewarding illegal immigrants.

“In 2011, he [Cruz] talked about a pathway to citizenship. In 2012, Donald criticized Mitt Romney, saying Mitt lost his election because of self deportation, and so even today we have a report that Donald, you’ve hired a significant number of people from other countries to take jobs that Americans could have filled,:” Rubio said. He continued, “My mom was a maid at a hotel, and instead of hiring an American like her you’ve brought in over a thousand people from all over the world to fill those jobs instead. So I think this is an important issue.”

Trump rebuffed these accusations by claiming the times he hired illegals were during the height of the season in Miami when he couldn’t find Americans to take the part time, low income positions.

Marco countered this by citing that Donald has even been fined for hiring illegal workers, to which Trump rebuttled, “I’m the only one on the stage who has hired people!”

Comedian Made STUNNING 2016 Presidential Prediction 8 Years Ago That’s Catching Everyone’s Attention

While Donald Trump’s rise to political prominence in the GOP might baffle some, at least one individual was predicting this phenomenon as far back as 2008.

On the Adam Carolla Show, comedian and host Carolla made this prediction while discussing the billionaire and poking fun at some aspects of his private life.

“He’s going to be president in eight years, you understand that everybody? You understand Donald Trump is going to be president? He will be president one day, it will be in our lifetime,” said Carolla.

Asked whether Trump would still be with his current wife Melania, Carolla jokingly responded, “No, no, no, no, because she will have seen her 38th birthday. There will be uh … I think they’re harvesting Eva Gabor’s eggs right now as we speak to make a new classy chick from ‘Classilvania’ for Trump to marry as his fifth wife.”

The comedian continued his predictions with a much more facetious tone, seeming to imitate Trump’s brash and sometimes simple way of speaking.

In regards to his children, Carolla noted that they would most likely be members of his cabinet. “The ‘Secretary of Class,’ that’s what you’ll be, Ivanka. Ivanka, you will be the ‘Secretary of Does Not Suck and Class.’”

Referring to Trump’s son, Carolla suggested he might be nominated “Chancellor in Charge of Losers,” where he would watch over all the “losers” in America to make them winners.

“[The son] he’s terrific. That’s why I’ll make him the ‘Chancellor in Charge of Losers.’ He will have to look over the losers as a terrific child.”

While some people mind find this sort of thing offensive, it is important to note that Adam Carolla is a comedian and was most likely making these jokes in good fun.
