A teacher in the Alpine School District is under surveillance after a ceremony to honor veterans at a school assembly dedicated to political activism on Monday.
During a presentation as part of the district’s week-long campaign to celebrate Veterans Day, Larry Law, a veteran and physical education teacher at Dry Creek Elementary School in Lehi, detailed his service military before someone who saw the presentation says they pivoted to speak out against the COVID-19 vaccine and socialism.
In an image provided to Deseret News, Law is seen in uniform, speaking in front of a slide that reads: “Many students think socialist / communist ideas sound attractive… Talk to someone who fled a socialist country. Ask them how corrupt the government is, how it controls your life, how it harms and kills innocent children.
“If we don’t teach our students the truth about our Constitution, they will eventually become slaves to bullies,” the slide read.
In an emailed statement, the Alpine School District confirmed that the incident had occurred and is being investigated.
“As in previous years, schools hold special flag ceremonies and assemblies to honor the parents and grandparents of students who are veterans and to thank those who continue to protect our freedoms. An isolated incident that occurred on Monday at an elementary school is unfortunate, worrying and is being investigated by the school and district administration. District policy prohibits political advocacy, ”the statement read.
A Dry Creek Elementary relative who asked not to be identified said Law made several references to tackling bullying, including COVID-19 vaccine warrants, and showed images of predominantly Asian dictators like example of what a bully looks like. The parent called it a “pro fighting platform”.
“It was just full of anti-Asian rhetoric about how people who get free gifts like food at the grocery store are anti-American and for the lazy,” the parent said.
The parent also claimed that Law had expressed support for the January 6 riots in Washington DC and that the “government telling us we should get vaccinated is the government being a tyrant and we must fight the tyrants.”
Law helps run an alternative medicine blog called Angie’s Option Grass Roots Movement. The most recent post, dated Tuesday and drafted by law, denounces the recent FDA approval of the COVID-19 vaccine for children.
“Stopping the rise of those leaders who bow to socialist and communist ideas is essential to saving our rights and freedoms as individual human beings. … The socialist-inspired COVID-19 pandemic has stolen nearly two years of our lives, ”the post read.
Among other things, Law’s blog also claims that 5G is dangerous, with another recent article warning “The cost of damage caused by electromagnetic fields (EMFs) to human health, animals, birds and even human beings. insects can turn out to be catastrophic. Strengthening your immune system will be imperative as the world is bombarded with exponentially increasing electromagnetic energy. ”
Law’s LinkedIn page says he attended the US Air Force Academy.
