8th Grade Teacher Recorded in QAnon Rant to Students Telling Them Trump is Still President
A history teacher at Anacapa Middle School in Ventura, California is under scrutiny after a secret recording of her revealed she was telling kids wild conspiracy theories as though they were facts.
That is about as mildly as the “lesson” can be described.
The female teacher, who has yet to be identified, went on an anti-government rant that included angry tirades about controlling citizens through vaccinations, doctors stealing unvaccinated parents’ new babies, an assertion that Donald Trump was actually still president, and even a description of President Joe Biden’s son Hunter — the subject of many popular conspiracy theories — as having had inappropriate relations with his own niece.
Sarah Silikula, the mother of the child who recorded the teacher’s outburst, spoke to reporters with LA’s CBS2 in tears as she described the talk with her son on the way home from school that caused her to come forward with the video he had recorded:
He’s damaged. He’s hurt. He’s scared. He doesn’t trust his parents now. He thinks we lied to him. I mean, why? Why does that need to be said in this classroom full of children?

The boy vowed never to get vaccinated and asked if his parents were aware that Trump was still the President of the United States.
The audio from the recording is absolutely shocking. In one part, she is heard telling her students:
People need to wake up and see the government has way too much power right now. Hunter Biden, for example, is doing deals with China and Ukraine and all these places where he was funneling money illegally. He also had child pornography on his laptop. He was having s*xual interc0urse with his own niece.
Aside from the fact that all of that is false, it should be noted, of course, that Hunter Biden is not part of the government.
Unfortunately, coming across people in positions of authority who believe this dangerous propaganda is becoming more and more common. The psychology behind what leads people to engage in QAnon theories is complex, and it can be difficult to separate people who have been duped into following this garbage from people who simply voted for Donald Trump because they too harbor the kind of political beliefs that he does.
What is imperative, however, is that we keep it out of our children’s classrooms.
