Magnum dopus

A couple of commenters pointed out this WLTX item, which was also covered by The State over the weekend.

It’s your standard “white supremacist Latin teacher” story, this time at Brookland-Cayce High School in Lexington 2. Because, let’s face it: you can’t seriously study the mother of all Romance languages without occasionally veering off towards John C. Calhoun's support of slavery.

He calls himself “Dr.” Winston McCuen, presumably to recognize the doctoring of his job application, on which he lied about never being fired. But McCuen was fired - from St. Joseph’s, a Catholic school up in Greenville - for refusing to take down the Confederate battle flag from his classroom.

And, like most folks who were never hugged as children, Dr. Winston is a staunch proponent of slavery.

The State did a nice job of providing links to his internet commentary about the pecking order of the races and how his workout regimen gives him the upper hand when the “Brookland Bloods” battle the “Cayce Crips.”

I followed these links to the darkest alleys of the internet and compiled some, but not nearly all, of his asinine comments. So here they are... ad nauseum:

"By the way, I now consider segregationism to be a form of bleeding-heart liberalism. Personally, I am a deportationist. (I have no qualms whatever about using force.)"

"Not a day goes by that I don’t muse, while standing in the hallway between classes suppressing barbaric “student” behavior, how much better this school would be, both academically and socially, without the blacks and the hispanics (most of whom are illegal)."

"Let’s put it this way: One reason I keep a gym membership is to keep my edge in stopping gang fights at school."

"Speaking of broken records: I’m dreaming of a WHITE COUNTRY!!!"

"Actually, I consider racial segregation to be a mere half-measure, with deportation of blacks from America being wiser. Why? For the obvious reason that blacks cannot handle more extensive freedom responsibly."

"So why do we empower ignoramuses? Because democracy and equality have become our idols. We mindless Americans continue to sacrifice all hope of rational government on the altars of these vicious idols."

"There is no apology to be made for black slavery in America. Why should today's whites apologize for the wisdom of their ancestors?"

Gervais says, kudos to St. Joe's and Brookland-Cayce for sending this one on his way. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go take a shower.

Not to worry. Scabimus Maximus can always get a job at a certain barbeque establishment. And as an academic man of letters (F.O.S.) he can help update some tracts with his creative writing and research skills.

Thanks for the post, Gervais. It's guys like this teacher who seem to get the national headlines and make all of us in the south look like rednecks - you know - like Glenn McConnell!!
