Ain't That America: Middle School Coach Gets Fired For Co-Writing Anti-Obama Song On His Own Damn Time

Has this been mentioned here? Sorry if it has.

The song is pretty good:

Reaction? Liberals demand he be fired; school administration of course agrees.

Twenty-six-year-old Bryan Glover is a Christian who co-wrote a song called "When You're Holding a Hammer, Everything Looks Like a Nail," which takes a dig at the current administration and what he believes to be the wrong moves for the U.S. He sent a link to his song to everyone in his personal e-mail inbox, which included parents from Grassland Middle School, where he coached football.

"An hour-and-a-half after sending out the e-mail, I got the phone call from the head coach saying that he had had complaints from parents; he was told to fire me," the former coach accounts.

He notes that he was surprised by the allegations against him.

"When the coach first called me, he said his phone was blown up with parents saying that I was being politically incorrect -- quote, unquote -- if you will, and that some of them were even reading into racial overtones in the song," Glover explains.

But he points out that the lyrics make no direct or indirect reference to race.

A number of supportive parents met with the principal and asked for reinstatement, but the school district is remaining firm.

This is how it is going to have to be: First of all, all of the school board members here have to be run against, and run hard against, and ejected from office. And then the principal needs to be fired, and every administrator along the way.

Second: Conservatives must begin, immediately, to get liberals fired from their jobs for any political expression. Any. Political. Expression.

We have tried to reason to them that this fascism is unfair. They don't care, they don't get it. All they see is the upside of fascism, the "good" side, the happy side, the I-get-to-coerce-my-opponents-and-hold-them-in-terror side.

They haven't been held in terror themselves, worried that any stray comment they make may cause them to lose their livelihood (in the worst recession since the depression, no less). They do not "behave" as conservatives are forced to stay in line because they haven't experienced the terror of of a hostile political bloc which has seized control of all the apparatuses of government.

They must be made to be afraid. And when a certain number of them have experienced the bad side of fascism, perhaps then they will be amenable to reason.

But they won't be until then. It's time to start using their despicable tactics against them. Not out of vengeance -- but as a teachable moment.
