Ingraham High School

In a profane Instagram post by an Ingraham High School teacher holed up in Tuesday’s student-involved shooting, the instructor blames voters who didn’t vote for progressive candidates in the state’s general election for the killing of another student at the northwest Seattle campus.

With some of his students and classroom as a backdrop in the post’s photo, an Ingraham High School teacher shared the lockdown image online.

Dori Monson Show listeners who saw the post on Instagram, and later on Safe Seattle’s Facebook page, told Dori they were “incredulous” at the teacher’s obscene rant and political “hijacking” of the shooting.

Dori: Don’t fall for state Dems last-minute ‘reverse psychology’

Seattle Police are not naming the two students involved in Tuesday’s melee, but parents have told Dori that the suspect is believed to be a 14-year-old who was “jumped” in a school restroom several days ago. Students and parents familiar with the case said the shooting was gang-related retaliation for the bathroom attack. Seattle Police apprehended the suspect shortly after the shooting that put the entire campus into lockdown.

“This is a picture of my students and I (sic) in lockdown today after a student with a gun shot another student multiple times in the hall about 50 yards from my classroom. That poor kid is dead. My students were amazing in this horrible situation. I did ok too. But this shouldn’t have happened at all. Our unwillingness as a nation to do ANYTHING about our gun problem is maddening and psychotic,” the teacher posted.

“If you didn’t vote blue today, (expletive deleted) you,” he continued. “The only way to stop this madness is to vote progressive so that we can have a minuscule chance to change gun laws in this country. I’m in the anger stage of grief at the moment. I’m not going to argue about this. I’m done. As a teacher, I’ve been done for years on this topic, but now it’s happened to me personally and I’m raging. Guns are the problem. Period.”

The Dori Monson Show reached out to the teacher and the school for comment, but he emailed back and declined. Some parents, meanwhile, were furious.

The teacher’s post is drenched with irony, Dori told his Wednesday listeners.

“Voters in Seattle and King County and Washington state have voted blue for most of [the teacher’s] lifetime and this still happened in his school,” said Dori. “Voting blue doesn’t change anything. Voting blue is a huge part of the problem.”

Progressive officials are behind the growing drug-fueled gang problem, and they are defunding not only Seattle Police, but other law enforcement agencies statewide, Dori said. Progressive ideologies are also why school resource officers were pulled from many schools – including Seattle’s – statewide, Dori continued.

Also disturbing to Dori and parents who reached out to him: The teacher’s obscene rant, insulting ‘(expletive deleted) you’ to any of his students’ parents – let alone any voter – who didn’t think like him.

Instead, said Dori, it’s the “blue wave that has led to many criminals running free.” With the “no youth jail” movement in King County, he added, “gangs have absolutely no fear of committing violent crimes because if they’re under the age of 18, they’re, at best, going to get a tiny slap on the wrist.”

In this case, Dori said, a “public school teacher is screaming ‘(expletive deleted) you’ and proposing voting blue will solve the problem, and yet it only keeps getting worse and worse and worse.”
