Student Records Teacher’s Anti-Trump Rant: ‘America’s Never Been Great’



A sixth-grade student from a school in Georgia recorded her teacher attacking President Trump as she ranted about how America has “killed millions.” The teacher also said that Trump wants a return to segregation and accused white students of being the progeny of ‘European’ mass murderers.

Josie Orihuela recorded her teacher at Hampton Middle School near Atlanta, where social studies teacher Johnetta Benton was delivering a lesson for Black History Month. This is the same school that gave students an assignment to write letters to Congress pushing gun control. Parents are outraged over this incident as well.

Josie began recording just after Benton turned off a film the class was watching and pronounced that ‘Make America Great Again’ could be a precursor to ‘trying to bring back segregation’, the student told Fox News. “When my President says let’s Make America Great Again, when was he talking about?” Benton is heard asking. “He must be talking about when it was great for Europeans,” Benton said. “Because when it comes to minorities, America has never been great for minorities. Cuz when I examine history, I can’t remember a time when it was great for anybody other than the Europeans,” Benton continued.

She also pointed out that the 1960s had segregation, the 1970s still didn’t see equal treatment and that in the 1990s, police officers beat Rodney King in the street.

There was also a male teacher in the room who would periodically interject in support of Benton’s comments. The conversation turned to illegal immigration, at which point another teacher, Mr. Stroud, entered the classroom and said, “All of us here are all illegal immigrants.” When students tried to reply that Trump’s slogan might be a call for a return to stricter legal controls on immigration, such as the ones the nation had before the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, Benton shot that down.

The teacher contended that aside from African-Americans and Native Americans, who came here as slaves against their will, everyone here are “illegal immigrants” and pointed to all the white students. “So every person in here — unless you’re a Native American, and I sure don’t see any in here, I could be wrong — we’re all immigrants,” she said. “So when you say immigrants are killing folks, that’s us. That’s you, you, you, you and you.” She was pointing at the five white students in the classroom.

“Because Europeans came from Europe. You are immigrants. You are illegal immigrants. Because you came and just took it… You are an immigrant. This is not your country,” Benton said. “Before you talk about somebody else look at yourself in the mirror, look at your ancestry in the mirror before you start saying “You’re bad, and you’re bad and you’re bad so you can’t come ’cause you happened to have killed a few people'” – Well guess what my people have killed millions, not a few. Millions upon millions upon millions – babies and children,” she said.

Benton has been a teacher for 18 years. J.D. Hardin, the communications coordinator for the Henry County schools in Georgia, called the rant ‘extremely unfortunate’ and said that the matter had been ‘addressed immediately’ in a statement to Fox News. Funny, that’s exactly what they said after the gun control letters were assigned by another social studies teacher at the school and then were caught by a parent there whose son is a student at the school. The exact ‘actions’ are never revealed either. “This unfortunate incident affords us the opportunity to remind our educators of the importance of keeping any potential political bias out of lessons for students of any age,” Hardin said.

Josie’s mother, Kimberly Orihuela, also spoke with Blue Lives Matter, saying she had withdrawn her daughter as a student from Hampton Middle School over Benton’s actions. “I had to get my kids out of the Henry County schools,” Kimberly said. “She basically told these children that they were responsible for millions of deaths. Why is she saying that every white child is the descendant of a slave owner? That’s just not true,” she said. “I told my daughter I was proud that she had the nerve to ask the questions – that she called her out on the fact Trump is talking about illegal immigrants, not legal immigrants,” Kimberly said. “But when she told the kids to go home and look in the mirror and reflect on what their ancestors have done… I had had enough,” the mother said.
