The Dallas-Fort Worth chapter of the Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has welcomed the resignation of two McKinney ISD middle school teachers who posted anti-Islam and hateful tweets on their social media.
CAIR Last week, CAIR-DFW called on the McKinney ISD to probe into the impact two Cockrill Hill Middle School teachers had on students after parents of students from McKinney ISD contacted CAIR-DFW regarding their concerning social media posts.
In those posts, teachers Justin Barton and Mark Russell referred to Islam as a “satanic death cult,” an “evil ideology,” and “a political ideology…[that] cannot assimilate. It must dominate.” Highly offensive anti-Muslim propaganda was retweeted numerous times. The teachers also attacked the LGBTQ community and equated being transgender with having a mental illness, perversity, and delusion. (Of course, CAIR, being Muslim, agrees with the all the anti-LGBTQ comments that were made)
In a letter to McKinney ISD’s superintendent, CAIR-DFW called for an investigation into the teachers’ impact on students, disciplinary action, protection from retaliation for McKinney ISD students, and diversity training for staff. “We welcome the resignation of these two teachers, but we will continue to raise concerns about allegations of anti-Muslim discrimination and lack of inclusivity (for Muslim practices) at McKinney ISD,” said CAIR-DFW’s Legal Director Nikiya Natale.
