The confirmation of newly-minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was just too much for liberals to bear this weekend. One leftist teacher even said she wanted to end the judge’s life, threatening to “kill Kavanaugh.” However, she soon learned that she would not be getting the response she was hoping for.
Samantha Ness served as a special education teacher at Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center in Rosemount, Minnesota. She is also a militant leftist, which shouldn’t really come as a surprise, seeing as she’s part of an education system which has become inherently liberal over the years.
What is surprising, however, is that Ness did not even have the good sense to keep her lethal disdain for the Supreme Court’s newest addition, Justice Brett Kavanaugh, to herself. Instead, she broadcast to the entire world that she wants to see Kavanaugh dead. Needless to say, people weren’t happy.
Shortly after Kavanaugh was sworn in at a private ceremony on Saturday, Ness tweeted from her now locked-down Twitter account, “So whose [sic] gonna take one for the team and kill Kavanaugh?”
The tweet quickly went viral, although it didn’t exactly go over as well as Ness had planned. The threat was forwarded to the FBI’s Minneapolis office and to the school where Ness teaches. She was placed on administrative leave pending a full investigation into her unwarranted threat on Kavanaugh’s life.

The teacher, listed as an instructor at the Intermediate School District 917’s Alliance Education Center, has since deleted her Twitter account but her tweet was captured and shared by scores of users who said they reported it to the FBI and U.S. Secret Service.

The results of the investigation into Ness didn’t end well for her. Ultimately, she chose to resign from her teaching position.
On Tuesday, Superintendent Mark A. Zuzek released a statement on the incident via the school district’s website. “On Sunday, October 7, 2018, the district began receiving complaints regarding an employee,” stated Zuzek. “The actions of the employee did not occur at school, and there were no school devices, equipment, or other school staff involved in the actions. At no time were students or staff in danger. The employee was placed on paid administrative leave and an investigation conducted.”
“The employee has voluntarily resigned from their position with the school district, and therefore is no longer employed by Intermediate School District 917,” the statement went on to say. “Pursuant with the Minnesota Data Practices Act, we are limited to providing additional information regarding this matter.”
This woman should not be in charge of any classroom, let alone one for children who require the aid of a special education teacher. Clearly, she has no filter. Clearly, she cannot control her temper. Indeed, special education requires a certain temperament that Ness just doesn’t seem to have.
Do you think Samantha Ness made the right choice by resigning from her teaching position after threatening to kill Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh?
