An Ohio high school teacher is being investigated after she went on a Facebook rant following President Obama’s re-election earlier this week.
The teacher, who works for Linden McKinley High School in Columbus wrote on his personal Facebook page: ‘Congrats to those dependent on government, homosexuals, potheads, JAY-Z fans, non Christians, non taxpayers, illegals, communists, Muslims, planned murder clinics, enemies of America.’
He concluded with: ‘Satan, You WON!’ Now, parents are up in arms over the teacher’s offensive remarks.

Channel 10TV News has not yet named the Linden McKinley High School teacher.
One mother of a student said that she could not understand why a teacher would allegedly choose to say things about the students and parents ‘who trust him.’
Hazel Davis, whose child attends the high school, said she received multiple phone calls about the post.
‘I needed to get on Facebook and see a post he made,’ she said. ‘Once I did that, my mouth just dropped.’
Mrs Davis said that she printed a copy of the Facebook page with the post and reported it to the principal.
She said that she was shocked a teacher who has a large number of students receiving free and reduced lunches would begin a post isolating those utilizing government assistance, according to the report.
Columbus City School officials confirmed 95 percent of students at the high school were on the federal program.

‘That is someone who you can’t look up to,’ Davis said.
Parents and students are not the only ones who saw the teacher’s Facebook page.
A Columbus City Schools spokesperson told Channel 10 TV News that the district has viewed the post and is now investigating.
‘It gives me an understanding of what class I want my son to be in next year,’ Davis said. ‘It is not going to be with that person.’
The Ohio Education Association and the Columbus Education Association as informal guidelines for teachers using social media, suggesting that they not post anything they would not say in front of students, parents or the Board of Education.
