An Iowa teacher is not happy she won’t be allowed to teach Critical Race Theory in her classroom this fall.
Megan Geha, a teacher at Des Moines East High School, who goes by the name “Ms. Magoo on TikTok, ranted in several videos about the new law Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) signed, banning the teaching of critical race theory in schools.
“My governor has put into place some ridiculous legislation that many governors across the country have put into place such as I can’t teach anything divisive; I can’t teach Critical Race Theory; and I can’t teach about racial equity,” the teacher lamented in the video.
The conservative governor called the theory, “indoctrination not education.”
“So, teachers, in the past, we’ve been activists, and after this shi** show of last year, we really need to stand up and do what’s right for our kids right now,” she said. “This is a call to action. We need to stand up and fight for our kids because this is bullsh**t.”
Best-selling author and national talk show host Todd Starnes blasted the teacher — calling her a perfect example of the left-wing propagandists who have infiltrated American classrooms.
“It’s teachers like Miss Magoo who are fundamentally transforming our nation by turning our kids against our way of life,” Starnes said. “They hate our nation and they are teaching our kids to hate our nation.”
Social media users quickly pointed out that students belong to parents, not teachers.
“That’s the thing Karen, they aren’t YOUR kids…. Teach your cats CRT if you want,” one person commented.
But the ban on Critical Race Theory wasn’t the only thing making Ms. Magoo’s day go from bad to worse. The Republican governor also signed a law requiring students to recite the Pledge of Allegiance daily.
“The other thing that my governor has mandated for next year is that every classroom — it’s mandatory that we all have an American flag — and it is mandatory that we all do the Pledge of Allegiance every morning,” she said. “You’re going to be hearing from me a lot next year.”
