Video taken this past Friday at Cliffside Park High School in New Jersey shows a female teacher telling her class to "speak American" and stop speaking Spanish. In the video, the teacher says:

"Men and women are fighting. They are not fighting for your right to speak Spanish. They are fighting for your right to speak American."

Wait, who is fighting for people to speak a certain language? What is "speaking American" exactly? If a person is American and they are speaking a language, is that not "speaking American"? Is American a language?

I have so many questions.

Oh, but my biggest one is this: When will this teacher be fired?

NJ.com reports that students pulled the fire alarm on Monday at 11:30am and hundreds of students came out of school with teachers. The high school student council president said that the board of education was planning a "closed session meeting" to discuss the incident.

This is Trump's America. So most likely she will be promoted to Vice Principal or something.

Can you help us out?
