I’m Guessing She’s Not An N.E.A. Member?

Stormbringer reminded us of a teacher of yore.  We need more like her, today.

Here.  Now.

Meet Captain Nieves Fernandez, the only known Filipino female guerrilla leader and school teacher. When the Japanese came to take the children under her care she shot them. She didn’t hide in a closet, she didn’t put up a gun free zone sign, she shot them in the face with her latong (a home made shotgun).

Note she has an M1 carbine with a 15 round magazine – illegal in the Gun Control States of California and Massachusetts.

She then went on to kill over 200 Japanese soldiers during the war with a group of commandos and holds the distinction as the only female commander of a resistance group in the Philippines.

In this photo she is showing U.S. Army Private Andrew Lupiba how she used her bolo to silently kill Japanese sentries during the occupation of Leyte Island.

Can you imagine an American school teacher in the day & age having the chutzpah to pull off a class act like this?

  1. As an American School Teacher I’ll reply: If a foreign army invaded the U.S. I would be more than happy to shoot enemy soldiers to protect my students. If I had to make my own weapon to do it, I would.
    I’d also be quite willing and would jump at the opportunity to resist a foreign occupation in any way I could.
    The vast majority of teachers are teachers because it’s what they love to do and they love their students (outside of a few complete incorrigibles). They certainly don’t do it for pay, or even respect of which there is very little of either.
    To all those that love to bag on teachers: please! Join us! Walk a mile in our shoes and then tell us what horrible people we are.

    • Not bagging on teachers! Bagging on a dysfunctional system which mandatorily(is that a word?) disarms them, under penalty of law, makes them cower all sheep-like if attacked, then calls ‘the authorities’ to come solve the problem with guns!

      …coupled with a little history. :-)

  3. A big believer in female empowerment. I do have a bolo similar to the one she is demonstrating with.

  4. Most teachers in this country today are the ultimate nanny-staters. They’d welcome the invaders here and push their party line if the invaders promised to keep them employed.
