The middle school teacher was threatened after an argument with neo-Nazis.

“I am disgusted and condemn these attacks on myself and the children, the faculty and staff at my school,” Yvette Felarca told Berkeleyside. “I hold Donald Trump responsible for this. His politics of racist demagoguery and hate is inciting these vile threats of violence, even against children. It exposes why Trump and his racist, Nazi, and KKK supporters need to be defeated — and it shows us what Donald Trump’s vision for America really is.”

Officials with the Berkeley Unified School District said in a statement that they were informed on Monday that Felarca, who teaches at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, was involved in the counter-demonstration in Sacramento on Sunday.

According to the statement, once Felarca was linked to the school, it received several emails demanding that she be fired with one in particular containing a threat “that if certain actions were not taken against the teacher within the week, someone would come to King with the intent to harm students.”
