SOUTH CAROLINA’S PUBLIC SCHOOLS CAN EXPLAIN EVERYTHING, THOUGH …
We’re used to South Carolina’s public schools making excuses for their ongoing failure to educate our children (that’s been going on for decades), but over the last few years we’ve noticed that this aversion to accountability extends beyond the Palmetto State’s chronic academic underachievement.
Simply put, these educrats have an excuse for everything …
Take the story of Patricia Mulholland, who was recently suspended from her job as a teacher at Bluffton Middle School for allegedly assaulting a student and spewing anti-Semitic vitriol at him.

There are varying accounts on some of the specifics, to be sure, but there’s general agreement on both sides that Mulholland grabbed the child and made anti-Semitic references.
Ready for the purported “rationale?”
Mulholland’s attorney claims that she was merely attempting to teach her class a “visual lesson” about the Holocaust – although her students have disputed that contention (saying that they had a lesson on the Holocaust the previous day).
Based on a preliminary investigation of the incident, police have charged Mulholland with third-degree assault and battery and public disorderly conduct – and a hearing in her case is scheduled for next week.
Incidentally, police in Bluffton haven’t released the child’s name – or even revealed whether he is Jewish. All we know is that he allegedly stood up to sharpen his pencil and wound up on the receiving end of a severely traumatic “lesson.”
While prosecutors determine how to handle the case, the school is conducting its own “investigation,” although at this point it looks more like a whitewash. Believe it or not, district officials are actually standing up for Mulholland – touting her as a model teacher who has never had any problems in the past.
Is that really the case, though?
“She has been the subject of (related) complaints in the past,” a source close to the district tells FITS.
Nonetheless, this “good teacher who got carried away” excuse is what district officials are pushing hard in the press – and as they attempt to do damage control with the local Jewish community.
We understand that this sort of knee-jerk evasion is par for the course in our public school system, but in this case it absolutely strains credulity. And while Mulholland obviously deserves her day in court (and is innocent until proven guilty), the fact that the public school system in Beaufort seems more focused on exonerating her than getting to the bottom of her alleged behavior is troubling.
The Lord has placed a strong burden on my heart for the nation of Israel and the Jewish people. The anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism throughout the world is growing rampantly, and the public is not being told the truth about Israel.
At the same time, Islam is an enormous threat to the West, and because of political correctness, most will not address its dangers. In all honesty, the Hard Left and Islam have united and are using one another because they both share the same hatred for America, Israel, and Christianity. As Christians, we must hate Islam, but not have hate in our hearts for Muslims. They are totally deceived by an evil religion which has them bound by its lies, hatred, and intolerance. We must also remember that most Muslims were born into their evil religion and know nothing else. Jesus has love in His heart for the Muslim people, so He expects the same from us.
