This Assistant Principal’s behavior is unacceptable!
Video: Assistant Principal of a Top Ranked School Yells at Students (Content warning: Rough language)
If you want a perfect example of an angry, childish liberal, look no further than this video.
A brother-and-sister team, 16-year-old Conner Haines and his 19-year-old sister Lauren, recently stood on the corner sidewalk outside of a public high school in Downington, Pennsylvania, with signs and pamphlets spreading a pro-life message and preaching the tenets of Christianity to cars passing through the intersection.
Conner has his phone on record as STEM Academy’s assistant principal, Zach Ruff, comes storming up to the scene. He is clearly agitated and asks them to move off of school property. They refuse and inform Ruff they are in a public space and that really caused his anger to boil.
For 18 minutes, Ruff stood in front of the Haines to block their signs as he waved to students and parents driving off. But he continually engaged with them and his actions became stranger and increasingly outlandish.
At one point, Conner tells him that unborn babies are the image bearers of God, to which Ruff responds, “You can go to hell where they are, too,” pointing at the anti-abortion signs.
Ruff then unloads, telling them there hasn’t been a single pregnancy in the school for five years and no one has had an abortion under his watch.
“These children are being murdered,” Conner insisted.
“They’re not children, they’re cells,” Ruff exploded, reminding them they are at a science-based school. “Go home!”
Ruff accused the teens of harassing him, although he was the one that approached aggressively. But when Ruff was proselytized to by Conner, that’s when he really came unhinged:
“Listen here son, all right, I’m as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me and what I should and should not be doing.” TruthRevolt
Patricia McGlone, director of public information for the Downingtown School District, told WCAU that Ruff will remain on leave pending a formal investigation and that parents will have the opportunity to express their concerns.
“We do not condone or support the conduct expressed in the video and are deeply disappointed that this incident occurred,” the school’s statement read. “His conduct does not represent the values of the school district or the respect we expect our employees to show for the civil rights of others.” TheBlaze
