Pro-Obama Teacher Diantha Harris Bullies Soldier’s Daughter

By TheWatchman on November 5, 2008

As the Presidential race heads toward its climax, some teachers are having difficulty keeping their opinions to themselves in the classroom.  So is the case with Diantha Harris, who teaches at Mary McArthur Elementary in Fayetteville, NC near Fort Bragg.  Harris asks her class who they are "pullin'" for in the election.  When a young girl whose father is serving in Iraq answers John McCain, Harris responds, "So that mean yo’ daddy could stay in Iraq for another hundred years!”  The child's eyes well up in tears, not knowing how to respond.

Watch the Diantha Harris video below, which is followed by a partial transcript of the pro-Obama teacher bullying the girl, whose name is Cathy. We can only wonder if Harris would have been as forthright if she had been speaking to adults.  The teacher was caught on tape by Finnish documentarians making a film about Barrack Obama's supporters.

Partial transcript:

Harris: We want to talk about the presidential election. I want to ask you, who are you pulling for? Raise your hand.

Student: Obama.

Harris: You pullin for Obama. Who you pullin for?

Student: Obama.

Harris: Any of you pullin for John McCain? That’s fine, say him as well.

Student: Obama.

Student: Obama.

[Cathy, the daughter of an American soldier answers McCain.]

Harris: John, oh lord, John McCain.

Oh Jesus, John McCain.

Ok, now I wanna axe you somethin.

Why are you pullin for John McCain? It’s ok, but why are you pullin for John McCain?

Cathy: I thinks it’s because my parents are going for him too.

Harris: Ok, your parents are going for him. Why are you pullin for Ba-RACK. Barack.

Student: I just want a black president sometimes.

Ok, you want a black president.

Student: The reason why I want Barack Obama is because he’s making good changes in the good country and stuff like that.

Harris: So, he’s making good changes for our country. Now can you tell me just a little bit more, like what type of changes?

Like not having big fights between Iraq and having soldiers killed.

So in other words, Barack is going to end that war in Iraq. What do you all know about that war in Iraq?

[Harris addresses Kathy] Talk, cause yo daddy in the military. Talk. It’s a senseless war! And by the way, Cathy, the person that you’re picking for president said that our troops could stay in Iraq for another hundred years if they need to!

[Camera pans to Cathy, in near tears.]

Harris: So that means that your daddy could stay in the military for another hundred years!
