A furious crowd of citizens criticized and often shouted down Charlotte City Council on Monday night, calling for resignations across the city and chanting, “Hands Down! Shoot Back!” and “No Justice, No Peace!”
Mayor Jennifer Roberts, who allowed people to speak for two hours, repeatedly had to stop the meeting, pleading for quiet. Sometimes the crowd quieted to allow people to speak. At other times, her requests were met with heckles and chants for justice.
Even after the meeting, protesters gathered in the lobby of the Government Center. More than 20 protesters sat down after one young man urged them to “occupy this space.” Dozens more stood, chanted and demanded a federal investigation into the shooting.
“Release. Release. The whole damn tape,” they chanted.
Harder has been an English Honors and AP World History teacher at Cedar Ridge since July 2014, according to her online LinkedIn profile. She has worked as a teacher since 1997, including 15 years with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools.
Conservative blogger A.P. Dillon first wrote on Sept. 21 about Harder’s comments, publishing what she says is a student recording from Harder’s classroom.
Students alleged Harder asked them to compare speeches by Adolf Hitler with those made by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Dillon says in the blog post, and taught multiple other lessons of a similar nature.
The teacher in the recording refers to Trump as a “master of pathos,” who manipulates his audience through their fears. The comments are part of a lesson on three ways to persuade an audience, she says, noting that an argument using pathos appeals to the emotions.
