CORDOVA, TN – A Tennessee high school teacher has been suspended and put on a leave of absence after he made comments about America’s growing censorship of free speech on social media and in the mainstream media. Now for discussing the assault on free speech and de-platforming opposition, Cordova High School Principal Barton Thorne has been de-platformed and censored himself.
Jerrica Phillips, Chief of Communications has confirmed that Thorne has been put on paid administrative leave.
““he principal at Cordova High School has been placed on paid administrative leave, pending the outcome of the review of the comments that were made,” she said.
“It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about,” Throne said in the recording in a report by News Channel 3 in Memphis.
A morning announcement by Thorne read as follows, “It’s what’s going on with Twitter and Facebook and Google and Apple, and their decision as private companies to filter and to decide what you, you hear and know about. Because there have been times even in American history where a small group of people decided what you could hear. You think about McCarthyism. If you don’t know about that, you can Google that or talk to your Social Studies teacher.”
Now, he’s at risk of losing his job as the liberal left aggressively hunts and pursues anyone whose message differs from their own, seeking to damage and destroy anyone who offers a political opinion. Mr. Thorne is wrong about one thing. This isn’t McCarthyism, this is the beginning of full fledged communism in America.
