*UPDATED: TEACHER RESIGNS — VIDEO: Texas Middle School Teacher: "Those Conservative Christians Need to Get COVID and Die"
Colleyville ISD teacher recorded railing against opposition to COVID vaccines
A Colleyville Middle School teacher identified by school parents as Lisa Grimes was captured on camera saying that political opposition to the COVID vaccine prolonged the pandemic and and added “those conservative Christians … they need to die …. they need to get COVID and die.” The video was provided by a family of the school who asked to not be identified at this time.
“We have a political system that will not allow us to [inaudible] so we’re vaccinating like the flu … which is, you know … get the flu vaccine if you want but you can’t — don’t ‘tread on me.’ [crosstalk] But it’s too late. It would have had to have been immediate. If we would have done it immediately, it’d already be gone. That’s what’s frustrating. The rest of my life is impacted because of politics? Because of conservative Christian crap? [crosstalk] I’m telling you, those conservative Christians … they need to die … they need to get covid and die.”
We have reached out to Colleyville ISD for comment.
