Maine Republican Party Breaks Into Middle School Classrooms and Destroys Teacher’s Work

From Right Wing Watch and Rawstory, comes this ghastly story of Republicans rifling through a Maine classroom to remove all “objectionable” material, which they then replaced with stickers and notes instructing kids to vote republican.

‘A Republican was here. What gives you the right to propagandize impressionable kids?’

Teachers at a middle school in Portland, Maine, are upset with attendees of a Republican convention who rifled through teachers’ materials in a classroom they were using and reportedly stole materials from the room, replacing it with GOP slogans.

Officials from the Maine Republican Party quickly apologized this week after local news sources reported on an incident at Portland’s King Middle School. Eighth-grade social studies teacher Paul Clifford returned to his classroom following a meeting of the Knox County Republican caucus there to find that his teachers’ materials had been rifled through and a poster outlining the history of the US labor movement was missing, replaced with a bumper sticker that reads, “Working People Vote Republican,” reports the Portland Press-Herald.

What’s more, according to the Bangor Daily News, the Republican operatives also rifled through a closed cardboard box containing copies of the US Constitution, donated by the American Civil Liberties Union. And Clifford found a note nearby that stated, “A Republican was here. What gives you the right to propagandize impressionable kids?”

  1. Is that a picture of those bad people on your blog page? Principal should have those parents clean the blackboards and do detention on Saturday.

  2. There is literally no important difference between the GOP and the KKK.

      LibHomo- you will appreciate this video at our brother site Tea Bagger Watch.

      We like your blog, BTW, and are adding it to our links!

    • It doesn’t seem fair to ignore the heritage and legacy of Senator Byrd who is semiconscious but still voting in the Senate for the Democrats. He particpated and had membership in the KKK and he will not switch to the GOP. Anyway, the GOP don’t wear sheets or burn crosses, because we would see the videos non stop everywhere daily. Klu Klux Klan has started supporting illegal immigration so there will be new minorities to persecute and terrorize thanks to open borders.

        Then why don’t you go back to your blog and write an article about it?

        Thus far for the year this blog has been up Bryd hasn’t done shit in the way of racism, when he does we will report it.

        Now, have we given you enough attention yet?

        Or, do you need to come back on and comment with more useless babble?

  3. Welcome to visit my blog. We know Byrd hasn’t done “s–t” on anything for last 15 years. However, it is good to know this year of your extensive blog research is as far as history needs to go on racism or misdeeds requiring your lamp of liberty.

      Okay, HoboDuke, I’ll tell you what…

      Write up an “accurate” article about Byrd’s racism, e-mail it to us:

      pressservices2008 at

      and we will put it up here on our blog.

      Does that sound fair?

      Me thinks it’s more than fair!

      For the record, we are NOT DEMS or Dem apologists, so when Dems do get stupid with racism we don’t have a problem reporting it.

      Our other affiliate sites have reported on the racism from the Clintons, from VA senator Jim Webb ect….

      But, at this point in history the Republican “Southern Strategy” is rearing it’s ugly head and we feel it our duty to report it.
