Unhinged GOP lawmaker arrested after trying to be a substitute teacher. He terrified the students.

He allegedly kicked a student's groin, asked teens about their masturbation habits, and ranted about a foster child that he claims attempted suicide because of lesbian parents.

All hell broke loose when a conservative elected official in Kansas served as a substitute teacher at a high school in his district. Kansas state Rep. Mark Samsel (R) berated the teens all day, pleading with them to follow God, asking them about their masturbation habits, demanding that the children he’s teaching “make babies” because “it feels good,” and claiming that a sophomore at the school is contemplating suicide because they have lesbian parents.

That was all before he allegedly grabbed one student and pushed him against the wall, and attacked another by invoking the “wrath of God,” intentionally hit him in his genitals, then invited others in the class to do it too. He has since admitted that he planned his actions but claimed that he did nothing wrong.

So...Kansas ya say? Huh.

1. My parents lived in KS and my Mom would have kicked this guy in the groin if he terrorized

her kids, as she had every right to, to defend her kids against the likes of this scumbag...makes you wonder if this guy is a in-the-closet pedophile or worse...now I jest that my Mom would resort to violence in kicking this guy in the groin as he so well deserved, but she certainly would have dressed the guy down a few notches.

I'd say that this guy should be kicked out of the GOP, and worse, for such language unbecoming a teacher (and how did he ever get to this position? Didn't he get vested first prior to teaching any students ... the people of KS are better than this.

29. True

But, someone has to do the work while he lounges around in the sun. We can't have ten rich people without 100,000 wage slaves working to make them richer while working themselves into an early grave, now can we? He definitely wants everyone to make more babies, so that there is a bigger pool of workers to draw from. Now, when it comes to those who will 'control' the unwashed heathens, you are correct. But, not too many, as these types are not known for sharing anything other than bullshit.

2. I hope there's video of this ...

Dude is SO fired.

Hopefully he'll also be doing time for assault (maybe sexual assault actually if he hit someone in the junk).

I would REALLY hope he's expelled from the state house but won't hold my breath.

We know what degenerates the RePuQ's are.

21. Yes, the students took plenty of videos.

I posted the story from the Kansas City Star yesterday that went into details about how the representative picked out one student as his preferred target.

The representative also works with children in his church group and on sports teams.

4. What did he mean he 'did nothing wrong'? Does he think teachers normally act like this?

Or does he think they should act like he did? There truly are a lot of totally unhinged people in positions of power. So scary.

under ANY circumstances, including sports. Someone needs to get him help AND protect the children.

10. Surely another EVANGELICAL Christian.

The pressure placed on them to CONVERT others will naturally drive many of them to insanity.

No surprise that they feel compelled to remove science from schools and to eagerly elect authoritarians like Trump who promise to fulfill their bidding. They would vote for Hitler if he promised to force everyone to obey their religious doctrines. All part of the conversion process!

Professes to be a Christian? I think not. I also think he has some mental health issues and desperately needs help.

15. What the ever-loving fuck?

This person is completely deranged. That is abusive and insane behavior and he should never be allowed back in the classroom or in any other position where he has contact with children. He should also be recalled from office. He is in no position to be serving in such a role.

Edit - I read the article and saw that he was arrested and charged with assault. Good.

18. (clicks on link, immediately regrets it)

Of COURSE that's what he looks like. Of COURSE this is what he sounds like:

“You’re about ready to anger me and get the wrath of God. Do you believe me when I tell you that God has been speaking to me?” He proceeded to push the student. The student ran away and tried to find refuge on the opposite side of the classroom. “You should run and scream,” Samsel allegedly said.

22. Totally not what I expected....

I thought he would be fat and old (and of course, white).

OMG the article is far worse than the summary! Your snippet covers the most shocking - it's a tie between that quote and the one where he is inviting students to kick the already-kicked student!

24. "Fat and old, and of course white."

Three prejudices in one sentence! Many du people have protested against fat shaming, and from the surveys I've seen here, most of us are not young. Why would he have been fat in your opinion? How does that fit in the equation?

People who work for the government get by with things the rest of us could never dream of doing and staying on the outside of jail.

26. "Do you believe me when I tell you that God has been speaking to me?""

Um, no. But I believe you're hearing voices that aren't there.

This man has mental illness issues and will require more than the legal system has to offer.

And he clearly is interested in engaging with boys sexually.

Please update when the local churches release statements about him. I'd like to hear them.
