A Michigan school district fired a popular high school teacher and coach after he pointed out that "Trump is our president" on social media.

Varsity baseball coach and social studies teacher Justin Kucera said Walled Lake school district officials hauled him into a closed-door meeting after he indicated his support for President Trump's speech to reopen schools. He told the Washington Free Beacon the Walled Lake Western principal and district superintendent gave him an ultimatum: be fired or resign.

"I was required to meet with [human resources], the superintendent, and my principal [on July 10]. They initially took my statement on why I tweeted those tweets and they told me they would have a decision about my future employment in the upcoming days. When they completed the meeting, I was told I had the option to either be fired or resign." Kucera said.

Neither the school district nor the principal responded to requests for comment.

Kucera said the statement that cost him his job was intended to unify, rather than divide.

"I know a lot of people are just rooting for Trump to fail, and I don't think that anybody should do that," Kucera said. "Agree with him or not, you should want the president to do well. I apologized that [my tweet] brought so much negative attention, but I'm not sorry for what I said."

Kucera was a popular figure at the high school before the episode, according to parents and former teachers. Even his detractors lauded him on social media as they condemned the tweet. One student said she would need to find a new "favorite teacher" after seeing the missive. Multiple sources said that the teacher never brought politics into the classroom.

  • The debt is monstrous, I'm hoping that we're not borrowing from China (something we need to check out). Businesses had to get more in debt to face the situation and without any certainty to re-open or recoup their costs. How can you tell people that they must shut down their activity and take a loan? It doesn't make any sense. We're getting more in debt because of China, so China should cover our costs and monthly payments, right?

    On another side, unemployment support (for people who won't create jobs, they're actually job seekers) is beyond debt capacity and beyond what people would make if they'd return to work (in many cases, not all the cases).

    China did something really wrong, they were preparing bioweapons (it targets certain blood types and genetics) and a trial went out of control, a staff member in the lab must have carried some out. And now, it's hurting our lives and kids a very convenient way for both China and the world swamp (that includes Dems). We're at war because Chinese mentality is already here, among us, they infiltrate our opinion, they invest in media, they sponsor and influence some of our political leaders and they censor us. We can't even have a rational opinion in this country anymore, we're treated like racist right away. They're totalitarians and we already suffer from their control. Each news network is a battlefield, Trump's war plan should be about infiltrating the camps of our enemies, editorial teams, shares in big media networks, teacher unions, etc. WW3 is about China/Europe alliance against the American dominance (over the World) and tactics are all about who controls the media, bias narratives, and small troops (protesters). I love seeing the feds (fed police agents) picking them up in the street. We should also protest, near and around CNN to make sure the rest of the World sees and hears this: "STOP THE LIES, STOP THE MANIPULATIVE NARRATIVES, WE WON'T BUY PRODUCTS FROM YOUR ADVERTISERS". This is the kind of message CNN and AT&T need to hear. We need to be more, in number, than the leftist protesters and we need to focus our protests on media impact, media circulation is the goal to reverse the narrative (from the left). The reason why media are listening to leftists right now is that they make lots of noise, they are violent, they can burn down the house of a mayor (they can hurt). In our case, we want our opinion to be heard and respected, so we need to act massively and peacefully in order to reverse the current momentum of the radical left.

    • It is actually an incestuous situation.   Many of the media are married to dummycrats.


    • What are you talking about, Veronica? We got the power and we ARE the majority. That's why Trump won with a landslide in 2016 and why he will win with an even bigger landslide in 2020.

      I would not be surprised if Trump shut down CNN and all fake news in his second term, and if he established federal oversight over the media to prevent treasonuous lies from being spread. This will be necessary to preserve our freedom and liberties, all of whch is very dear to every single American. Americans understand that, which is yet another reason why I am convinced that Trump will win in a few months with another overwhelming majority.


    • Amen Albert!!

  • You need to support a socialist to keep your job at any education field 

    • That has to be changed.

  • I would bring a huge lawsuit aganist them in a heartbeat!!!

  • Sounds like a law suite to me... maybe ... but doubtful, the Union would step in and bring the suite... Nah, it was probably the union rep who reported the post. This incident should inform us just how insane and off track the public schools have gone... they are no longer bastions for critical thinking and educational excellence they have become the dens of rabbit Marxists and Anarchist. 

    • Agree, but lawyers will file suit for just about anything anybody is willing to sign a check for.   They'd likely sue a tuna sandwich for too much mayo.  Win or lose, they get paid.

      And, yes it is the Teachers' Union that led them off the track.   Really good, dedicated, and motivated teachers are a very rare commodity.   The rubber rooms have grown since the Union has gotten so corrupt.   I was amazed at what was taught in sex ed to kids today.   My 18 year old grandson fully believes that any intercourse at all will result in devastating damage (sores) to his equipment.   He says he'll never take the risk.   The jury is out.   Can you believe they were taught that anyone going on a date that doesn't get intercourse has a right to EXPECT at least a BJ.   Yeah, the woman teacher didn't eve have the courtesy to call it 'oral sex'.   He asked his mother that evening what it was.   She explained it.   His response was that it didn't sound very hygienic.  This kid is an 'A' student in advanced placement and open college courses all in calculus, math, etc.    He's not stupid.  Just a naive lamb heading to slaughter on college campus in a month.

      With lawyers it is all 'billable hours'.   

      I personally believe that the national office on Education should be closed and that returned to states to manage.
