Citrus Co. public school teacher says white nationalist podcast is ‘satire’


RIGHT NOW ON NEWS CHANNEL 8 AT 6. GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I AM ROD CARTER. A MIDDLE SCHOOL TEACHER HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM HER CLASSROOM AFTER A HUFFINGTON POST ARTICLE CLAIMS SHE HAS ANOTHER JOB — AS A RIGHT-WING RACIST PODCAST POSTER. Reporter: DANA WORKED HERE AT CRYSTAL RIVER’S MIDDLE SCHOOL UNTIL THE HUFFINGTON POST ARTICLE CAME OUT. THE ARTICLE CLAIMS SHE IS THE HOST OF A RIGHT-WING NATIONALIST PODCAST. ONE PODCAST HAS HER SAYING THAT SHE ROUTINELY TELLS HER STUDENTS HER POLITICAL VIEWS AND HAS EVEN DECEIVED HER PRINCIPAL. I KEEP GETTING ASKED ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN — I HAVE KIDS THAT ASK ABOUT NORTH KOREA, AND HOW IT IS GOING WITH THAT. AND I HAVE KIDS ASKING ABOUT ISIS. AND, SAUDI ARABIA — AND ALL KINDS OF THINGS. Reporter: WE WANT TO HER HOME TO GET HER STORY, BUT HER NEIGHBOR SAID THAT SHE LEFT SOON AFTER THE NEWS BROKE. NEWS CHANNEL 8 HAS BEEN TRYING TO VERIFY THE STORY FOR MORE THAN A DAY. AND ASKED THE CITRUS COUNTY SUPERINTENDENT FOR A COMMENT. THEY DID RELEASE A STATEMENT SAYING — THE HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED, AND AN INVESTIGATION WAS INITIATED. THE TEACHER HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE CLASSROOM, AND THE INVESTIGATION IS ONGOING. Reporter: WE ARE STILL LOOKING FOR HER TO GET HER SIDE OF THE STORY, AND TO VERIFY THAT SHE IS IN FACT THE HOST OF THIS ULTRA WHITE — RIGHT WING PODCAST. THANK YOU. WE DO HAVE AN UPDATE — WITH IN JUST THE PAST HALF HOUR, WE DID RECEIVE THE STATEMENT — NONE OF THE STATEMENTS RELEASED ABOUT ME, ABOUT ME BEING A WHITE SUPREMACIST HAVE ANY TRUTH TO THEM, NOR ARE MY POLITICAL BELIEFS INJECTED INTO THE TEACHING OF SOCIAL STUDIES CURRICULUM.

  1. Who's SIDE OF THE STORY does Jeff Paterson believe the other news agency reported, if not HER SIDE, heard on her podcast !!

  2. We really are living in the closest thing I've seen to a "Police State" where your thoughts can get you into trouble. I don't care either way about whether she was or wasn't, but what does worry the crap out of me is how this turned out! I don't see how she got any of her rights respected in how this transpired.
