This is where righties get all bent out of shape about "indoctrinating our children", correct?

Here we have a school bus driver getting paid by public funds to transport children on a bus where guns are banned to an from their free public school, again where guns are banned, complaining about socialism, gun control and free education. It's the trifecta of self-retorting retorts.

I wonder what his union has to say about all this.

Bus drivers are usually private firms hired by the school district.

I know here in NY our school system uses a private company, but under the terms of the contract the school can have a driver fired for cause as was the case when a driver was driving kids with alcohol on his breath and tipped the bus over in a drainage ditch.

Being this is Utah I doubt it is unionized.

Well, the fired bus driver might be wishing he had a union right about now, just saying.

Dumb ass gun nut. He is an employee driving his employers bus. This is not his personal space, or even a space that he has any right to beyond just driving. Idiot got fired. Another example of why so many right wingers fail in our society.

Dear Darlene,

The policy going forward appears to be you get fired for trying to indoctrinate kids on a school bus. Until the administration changes again.

Then he can post whatever the new administration allows.

Elections matter.

You are welcome.

One great thing about capitalism is that those supplying the means of production can self-select to be part of the system, or can remove themselves from that system. At the same time, those seeking the means of production and expending capital for that labor can usually discriminate in seeking workers suitable for employment (e.g., by applying tests for skills, competency, aptitude, etc.). The knob in question demonstrated his unsuitability for employment and the market spoke, so he is out on his ear.

Those on the right are certainly screaming about 'free speech' or 'freedom' in general in this matter, when their true perspective is that of a socialist society, where all who put themselves forth for employment are taken on, whether they qualify for that employment or not, and their employment is protected from the discrimination found in a capitalist system.

In other words, those who want this guy's job protected are defined as Socialists, not capitalists...

I hated the bus. I got into a fight on the bus in 7th grade. I was kind of cornered by this idiot a year older than I. He said something about my Mom, which is the only big-no-no I have ever subscribed to. I unzipped my backpack, held the opening taut and sawed the zipper teeth across this kid's neck and made him bleed. The bus driver stopped the bus and came back and thought for a second that I had ---- his throat. Kid never bothered me again.

I wish I was as tough now as I was back when I was 12.

I'm just glad this weirdo doesn't think public nudity should be legal.

If the driver had union representation there would be little that could have saved his job.
Breaking a rule has rules to correct behavior but when a driver makes their own rules they're in uncharted waters.

Interesting that the linked heading is from Sinclair Broadcast Group (KUTV) in which President Trump had extolled as better than "fake news".

Trump/Sinclair

The sad thing is that this generation will be "protected" from anything that is controvesial.

Yeah. "Controversy" is exactly what these kids need on the way to and from school

It's sad indubitably

Sure. You'd be so sad if he plastered his bus with the kinds of memes that turn kids gay, and got fired for it.

You know who would be sad about that? The kids.

People on your side of the aisle are dying from COVID and the rest of you guys don't even care. You won't lift a finger to help them. The best thing that could happen to society is to keep people like you as far away from government and politics as possible.

Why would you even get involved in a system you fundamentally don't believe in, except to destroy it, and us?
