Utah teacher Leah Kinyon was caught on camera sharing her views on politics, unvaccinated Americans and President Donald J. Trump to her students.
Kinyon was a chemistry teacher.
“We’ll just keep getting variants over and over and over until people get vaccinated,” Kinyon said. “It’s never going to end. It could end in five seconds if people would get vaccinated.”
Then she is heard saying:
“I hate Donald Trump. I don’t care what y’all think — Trump sucks,” she said. “He is a sexual predator, he is a literal moron. Go tattle on me to the freaking admins, they don’t give a crap.”
Kinyon lectured the class on being unvaccinated.
“This is my classroom and if you guys are going to put me at risk, you’re going to hear about it. Because I have to be here. I don’t have to be happy about the fact that there’s kids coming in here with their variants that could possibly get me or my family sick. That’s rude. And I’m not going to pretend that it’s not.”
“Most of y’all parents are dumber than you, I’m gonna say that outloud. My parents are freaking dumb. The minute I figured that out, the world opens up.”
She told her students they don’t have to do everything their parents say or believe everything their parents believe.
“Because most likely you’re smarter than them,” she added.
Climate change came up as well.
“If you’re a homophobe, get out,” she said. “Because I am the GSA faculty advisor. I love gay people. All LGBTQ, all A-plus (expletives). If you don’t like it, get out. If I hear you a damn word against any of ’em, I will open a can. And I will make your life a living hell. And they know it.”
According to Utah Public Radio, she was initially placed on administrative leave. She is now no longer an employee of the district.
