Soooo what do you think about his claims about teachers harassing him?

I saw no bullying ther, I only saw the whinings of a pissy teenager upset that someone dare express opinions that he doesn't agree with.

Sounds a little fishy to be honest...I mean...he changed schools halfway through the year because a teacher told him it was wrong to be a republican? I'm curious if he he made a formal complaint to the school and the district?

i predict he has a bright future in the republican party.

I'd love to see your response had it been a liberal student and a conservative teacher.

Whatever the situation is, some of the comments are hilarious: [quote="comment"] I was Bullied in High School because I like Ronald Reagan so I know how you feel they tried to get me to conform to their reality I had no one to turn to so I dropped out of school *snip*

Say what? This person dropped out of high school because they were bullied for liking Ronald Reagan?!?!? :lol: That's either a gross under representation of what really happened (probably just a flunky)...either that or this person has the thinnest skin on earth.

At the end of the class, I stood up, defended the governor and told her how inappropriate her behavior was.

What a nerd

(and yes, I realize that I'm on a gaming forum calling someone else a nerd, but come on)

>kid bullied for his political opinions at 12 years old :roll:

>kid stands up in the middle of class to protest against his teachers opinions :roll:

>kid complains to principle and says his teacher says "I dont give a sh**" and teacher faces no disciplinary action :roll:

>kid says teacher complains about struggling with his pay

>'looks up' his salary and it's over $100,000 a year plus expenses

Yeah, that's one thing that stood out to me. I've never heard of a public school teacher making anywhere near that amount.

Tenured high school teachers here in NY can make salaries near that. In NYC a teacher can make 100k with the proper experience and coursework

If his claims aren't fabricated (and they honestly read like they are, I don't know if that's just bad writing or if that's what is going on but read some of his claims and how vague they are on what was said and then how detailed the interaction after was) then that's unfortunate. However teachers are people too and while they should get a talking to for his actions they aren't unexpected and this sort of thing happens fairly often on both sides and most people just shrug it off. I get the impression from the article that what is going on here is that the kid is interjecting politics and the teachers are telling him to knock it off where upon he fabricates off that. Source: I was 15 once too.

It's not anyone who doesn't agree with me. If you look at every political thread on OT, you can see it's loaded with Liberals who trash every conservative/republican. Sad to see.

Or maybe you have a persecution complex like so many other conservatives? Like Fox News fighting the battle against the overwhelming 'liberal media' even though they destroy every other channel in the ratings. There are plenty of conservatives on Gamespot.

No, I don't have persecution issues. I love a lively debate. Majority of OT is Liberal, though.

You know it is possible for conservatives to criticize other conservatives too. Same ways that liberals can criticize other liberals. Disagreeing with a particular portion of an ideology doesn't automatically mean you are on the opposite side of the spectrum.

Yeah I doubt any 15 year old is a Republican. Even 18 year olds still struggle to come up with their own political identity. 

This goes for any political group. No young person can fully comprehend what being affiliated with a certain political party even means.

Your posts in this thread say otherwise.

technically this explains 90% of politics.

"In other words, reasoning with facts about the issues is quite secondary to the emotional power of first siding with your party and then employing your reason, intelligence, and education in the service of your political commitment."

I could easily see a 15 year old knowing what side he is on. If the 15 year old is mature and has an interest in politics, why couldn't he?

From what I've seen he is a Republican for sure but I kind of gather he's not really Republican because he agrees with their ideology but that he's a Republican because he's a Republican if that makes any sense. Maybe he just hasn't been around long enough or seen enough to realize the world is a very grey place and that there's more to politics than Republican party opinions and Democrat Party opinions.
#42 Posted by worlock77 (22547 posts) -

This sentence reveals the kid's real motivations:

I believe that the majority of my teachers (and teachers in general) are professional and leave their personal political views out of the classroom.

He's not bullied, he's simply, as I thought, upset that his teachers are actually expressing their views.

While it certainly is possible for someone so young to be politically aware, odds are he is just parroting the beliefs and rhetoric from a parent or other family member.

Not sure where you get that from. I believe science, but I know man is fallible and therefore so is science. There can very well be a person who matures faster than others.

At that age I barely had any real beliefs. I hadn't even had my first part time job yet. I was still a kid not caring.

Again, anybody at that age will most likely be just repeating what their parents and community generally believe in.
