Richland 2 Board Chair Teresa Holmes lit a fire under her son and friends by taking one of my Facebook posts out of context and posting it on her private DrTeresa Holmes Facebook page.,
The post from my personal FB page read, "I've been wanting an AK-47 for some time now. Maybe I should brush up my Russian and buy a ticket to Ukraine. I wonder how much Richland 2 would chip in, if I promised not to come back."
The context was the war in Ukraine. I was a Russian major in college and am a former deputy sheriff, a veteran, and a person who gets involved. I was investigating how to get to Ukraine to help drive out the Russians.
By taking my post out of context and putting it on her page, she riled up a bunch of her followers.
Chris Leevy Johnson thought I ought to be reported to Sheriff Lott. (Remember Chris' FB comment after James Shadd became Board Chair? Chris called Lindsay Agostini a "Karen" for not voting for Shadd.)
Teresa's son, Jai Austin, posted this rant on Facebook:
Do you suppose Teresa is proud of her son's literary prowess? His command of the English language? His ability to express himself clearly?
Where'd he go to high school? A Richland 2 high school? Is he, like his mother, a "product" of the Richland 2 School District?
