Math teacher fired for praising Western Civilization

Dr. Karen Siegemund is the president of the American Freedom Alliance (AFA). She was also a math teacher at Le Lycée Français de Los Angeles, a private K-12 school. She got fired from the school.

Siegemund claims that's only because she "defends Western Civilization". She got fired after attending on 5th  May a conference, that her AFA organized. The conference's main purpose was to "explore the Left’s ongoing multi-decade takeover attempt of numerous public and private institutions to effect a radical transformation of America."

During her speech at the conference, Karen said that "each of us here believes in the unparalleled force for good that is Western Civilization." She also added that is the Western Civilization is "our heritage, whether we were born here or not."

Just a day after proclaiming these words, she was informed that her contract at the school won't be renewed. Siegemund has been teaching at Le Lycée Français for the last four years. She is also a teacher for 20 years. The school that she got fired from, was also the same school that she attended as a child, years ago.

Siegemund describes herself "as an educator," that "wants all her students to learn critical thinking, to explore, to be skeptical," like she said it herself. She also said that during her teaching career she "promoted freedoms and independent thought."

It's not sure how the things will go on from this moment, as the California Labor Code prohibits to coerce employees "in regard to any political action and political activity." Siegemund already has a lawyer specialized in civil rights, Harmeet Dhillon, and she also set up a GoFundMe page to support her legal battle.

“I am just standing up for what I believe is right,” she said.
