Steve Nelson, the liberal principal at The Calhoun School in Manhattan, sent a scathing email to parents that stated the election of Donald Trump was “more troubling than Vietnam, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., the September 11 attacks and Watergate.”
The New York Post reported,
Steve Nelson’s scorching missive managed to roil several parents at the $46,000 per year Calhoun School – no small feat considering the Upper West Side bastion’s blaring liberal bent.
“It was inappropriate, it was offensive, it was condescending,” said one parent. “This is a liberal school. So I guess that’s the approach. But this was too much. To compare this to 9-11 – I think that’s just too much.”
Nelson emailed a series of anguished ruminations on Donald Trump’s ascent to Calhoun parents, simultaneously calling for non-partisanship while skewering the billionaire’s policies.
Nelson appears to be schizophrenic in his thoughts, and maybe should take a time out…oh never mind, he’s supposed to retire this year after 20 years on the job. Sooner, than later we hope. Being around even this private school, fashioning young minds for “journalism” will lead to more Fake news reporters.
“I watched soot-covered New Yorkers grimly trudging north on West End Avenue on September 11, 2001. I am more troubled now…One in my position must be scrupulous in avoiding partisanship…The ways in which equity and equality are now threatened are deeply troubling, including the constitutionally suspect and arguably discriminatory efforts to restrict or prohibit immigration based on religion and/or ethnicity.” Steve Nelson
So…he’s ‘avoiding partisanship’ and bashing Trump at the same time?He’s totally lost it. And definitely not a student of ANY kind of history at all, since other Presidents before Trump have done it.
When did Trump release Napalm in the jungles of Vietnam? When did Trump fly planes into the Twin Towers, killing 3,000 Americans? When did Trump assassinate ANY black leader? The man is totally delusional.
The narrative that Trump is discriminatory is flat wrong. It’s not a Muslim ban and never was. It was about specific countries who have terrorism. Liberals are hawking that lie everywhere.
What troubles us is that these idiots are allowed to teach anyone’s children. While it is fortunate that no taxpayer money goes to this private institution, it’s disgusting that anyone’s money should be used for such ignorance.
