Readers comment on Thursday’s editorial, “Keller school board member must be censured for bigoted remarks,” on star-telegram.com:
Haussmann’s references is associating the Muslim religion to such negative stereotypes as being anti-American or supporting terrorism. Bear in mind, Texas and the Mid-Cities have a long and recent history of supposed “Christians” being involved in bigoted, domestic terror organizations like the Ku Klux Klan. I’m old enough to remember the rally that David Duke held in Euless in the summer of 1979. Christians don’t appreciate having their religion slandered by people inappropriately associating them with the KKK. Muslims shouldn’t be treated that way, either. John Schleeter
The only way Haussmann can make amends to KISD is to step down or be removed. KISD is in the midst of a major bond package. The fact that the board has already had to meet twice just to deal with her bigoted statements has already wasted valuable time. And there is no time for her to rehabilitate her image with everything KISD is needing to focus on right now. She will be a distraction throughout her term if she stays. Tom Simmons
The school board is no place for someone like Jo Lynn. She should just stick with Tea Party meetings. Clancy Cummings
Never miss a local story.
A censure is not an option for a repeated offender. She has a history of being hateful to Muslims and maybe other minorities. How can I send my kids to Keller ISD when I know for a fact that a racist and a bigot is making decisions for my kids education? She must resign or removed. Maybe then KISD could start the rehab process. M Emad Salem
I would hope she does not resign. She is 100 percent right. Diane O’Donald
A muslim is a muslim is a muslim — and if you don’t know what their agenda is, you need to find out. Ron J Brown
