A California middle school history teacher is under fire after being caught teaching her class former Republican President Donald Trump is still President.
A student at Anacapa Middle School in Ventura, California recorded the teacher's rant, in which she also spread conspiracy theories about COVID-19 and accused Hunter Biden, Democratic President Joe Biden's son, of incest.
The student's mother, Sarah Silikula, told CBS Los Angeles the rant terrified her son and she is outraged at the school's lack of response.
See the report below.
In the recording, the teacher can be heard spreading numerous conspiracy theories that align in lockstep with those of the QAnon movement, a vast web of conspiracy theories which center on the belief the world is run by a cabal of Satan-worshipping, baby eating pedophiles whom Donald Trump is working to bring to justice.
The teacher told her class people need to "wake up" because "the government has way too much power right now," before launching into utterly fallacious claims that seem inappropriate topics for middle school children even if they were true.
For example, the teacher falsely claimed hospitals are kidnapping babies to coerce parents to take vaccines.
"If you have a baby in the hospital, they don't want to give it back if you're not vaccinated. This is a complete power control threat."
The teacher also made this wildly age-inappropriate and fallacious claim about Hunter Biden's sex life.
"Hunter Biden, for example, is doing deals with China and Ukraine where he was funneling money illegally. He also had child pornography on his laptop. He was having sexual intercourse with his own niece."
Understandably, Silikula is outraged her son's teacher was allowed to spread conspiracy theories in class, especially because her child was deeply upset by what he heard.
As she told CBS Los Angeles, her son said:
"I'm never getting vaccinated. I'm never getting any more shots of any kind. Did you know Trump's still president?"
Silikula also explained the teacher's lies resulted in her son not trusting his parents.
She and her husband attempted to explain the truth to their son.
"When he first got in the car and said, 'Dad, teachers know everything. She's right, dad. You're wrong'."
"He's damaged. He's hurt. He's scared. He doesn't trust his parents now. He thinks we lied to him."
School officials informed Silikula an investigation was performed and the teacher's entire class was moved to a different teacher. But Silikula says that isn't enough.
"Whatever anybody's political belief is, I respect. It's their belief. Don't impose it on my child who I trusted in your care."
On Twitter, people were astonished and outraged by the incident.
The as yet unidentified teacher is still employed by the school.
She has reportedly accepted responsibility for her poor judgment.
