The school didn’t care that Mary DeVoto was trying to teach kids about racism. If you’re tired of censorship, cancel culture, and the erosion of civil liberties subscribe to Reclaim The Net.
A social studies teacher at the Mother McAuley High School in Chicago was fired for using the n-word in class after a video clip went viral and social media users called for her to be fired.
Mary DeVoto used the term to teach a lesson on racism and explain how other words, in her belief, are as offensive.
A petition with more than 4,000 signatures is asking for her reinstatement.
Per the petition, Mary DeVoto compared the term “redskins,” a pejorative term for Native Americans, to the n-word, a racial slur used in reference to black people.
“I was trying to explain that to a Native American, that word is as deplorable and heinous as the n-word,” DeVoto said, “and I said the full word.”
According to the petition , there was a student who was recording the class for use later. The student sent the audio to another student, and the recording ended up on social media.
The recording, posted on Facebook, features a voice saying, “The Washington Redskins—guys, that’s no better than calling someone a [n-word]. Calling someone a redskin? That’s the same thing as calling somebody a [n-word]. So thank god they finally changed the name of the team.”The petition claims DeVoto had no idea that a student was recording the lesson. It further states that even before she knew that the recording had been shared on social media, she had met with Principal Eileen O’Reilly to apologize.According to the petition, DeVoto’s intent “was to obviously show that both words were terrible and should never be said.”The incident happened on January 28, 2021, on a Friday.

Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
