Kris Martin's posts went viral, and eventually caused the Homer Community Consolidated School District 33C to take action and terminate the recently hired teacher.
"As you may have heard or seen online, there has been some question and concern with regards to 33C hiring protocol and details surrounding the conditions of hire for new employees," District Superintendent Craig Schoppe wrote in an August 17 statement. He went on to declare that he had launched an investigation into the matter.
Just three days later, the school board held a special meeting and unanimously voted to fire Martin, a decision that garnered cheers from those in attendance.
"I HAVE BI POLAR 1 DISORDER WITH MANIA AND PSYCHOSIS!" Martin wrote in 2018 on Facebook, where they used female pronouns. "This condition has drastically changed my life for better and worse. Because of it, I suffer from irrational thought processes which make my fears and anxieties triple."
"Every day is a battle with my mind to survive and be the best me I can be," Martin continued, adding, "I have done things in conditions of psychosis and mania that have been violent and hurtful. But I am NOT my disease. I am ME! And I know ME. And I LOVE ME!"
Martin repeatedly shared posts worshipping Satan, and in one can be seen sporting a shirt that says, "Satan respects pronouns."
On Instagram, Martin shared an image of an upside down "back the blue" flag with the line replaced by the words "F*ck the police" following the death of George Floyd.
"It's time for reform," Martin wrote. "It's time for justice. No more White Supremacists in our law enforcement! No more senseless deaths!"
Libs of TikTok celebrated the victory, writing, "the 2023-2024 school year is off to a great start with LoTT always on the lookout for predators, groomers, and wokeness in your kid's schools."
