Leah Kinyon formerly taught high school chemistry in Utah. But she apparently didn’t realize the formula for losing your job: uneducated comments + video cameras = unemployment line. Turns out, the ex-educator was on the receiving end of a lesson in karma.
On Tuesday, a recorded video from Kinyon’s classroom showed her delivering an epic rant that would make Karens across the country look on in awe and reverence: “I hate Donald Trump. I’m going to say it. I don’t care what y’all think. Trump sucks. He’s a sexual predator. He’s a literal moron. Go tattle on me to the freakin’ admins — they don’t give a crap.”
After huffing and puffing her way through some Trump bashing, Kinyon turned her attention to vaccines: “I am, like, so over it. I will be super proud of you if you choose to get the vaccine.”
“This is my classroom, and if you guys are going to put me at risk, you are going to hear about it. I have to be here, and I don’t have to be happy about the fact that there are kids coming in here with their variants that could get me or my family sick. That’s rude. And I am not going to pretend like it’s not. So don’t ask me to.”
Damn, Leah, get yourself a Valium already.
She wasn’t finished. Formerly tasked with educating our young adults, Kinyon pivoted to questioning the intelligence of her students and their parents: “Most of y’all’s parents are dumber than you. I’m going to say that out loud. My parents are freakin’ dumb, and the minute I figured that out, the world opens up. You don’t have to do everything your parents say, and you don’t have to believe everything your parents believe because most likely, you are smarter than them.”
As is the case when you don’t study for a midterm, the result was predictable: “Alpine School District has concluded our investigation of the incident that occurred on August 17, 2021 at Lehi High School,” said a statement from the district. “Although the details of a personnel investigation are confidential, the teacher involved is no longer an employee of Alpine School District.”
