Texas Teacher: Conservative Christians ‘Need to Get Covid and Die’
A middle school teacher in Texas has been placed on leave after she was caught wishing death upon conservative Christians.
In a video shown on the Libs of Tik Tok, the Colleyville Middle School teacher said conservative Christians “need to get Covid and die.”
According to Dana Loesch, the video was taken by a family of the school who does not want to be identified.
The video shows the teacher, known as Lisa Grimes, stating:
“We have a political system that will not allow us to [inaudible] so we’re vaccinating like the flu … which is, you know … get the flu vaccine if you want but you can’t — don’t ‘tread on me,’” she said.
“But it’s too late. It would have had to have been immediate. If we would have done it immediately, it’d already be gone. That’s what’s frustrating. The rest of my life is impacted because of politics? Because of conservative Christian crap? [crosstalk] I’m telling you, those conservative Christians … they need to die … they need to get covid and die.”
The district sent out a statement to parents Wednesday.
“This afternoon, GCISD learned about an online video of a Colleyville Middle School teacher talking to two colleagues in a high-traffic area on campus,” the district said. “The sentiments expressed in the video do not reflect the views of GCISD or Colleyville Middle School. The teacher has been placed on administrative leave. The District will continue to investigate this incident.”
