The Pennsylvania assistant principal who ranted and swore at teenage anti-abortion protestors on a public sidewalk resigned yesterday.

CBS Philadelphia reports, Zach Ruff, who was Dean of Students at Downingtown-Area School District, resigned after video captured him in a confrontation between two teen anti-abortion activists on a public sidewalk outside of the STEM Academy in Downingtown.

The April 21st incident was caught on video and showed Huff berating the teens.

In the footage he yells, “I wish to protect my students from unsightly things that they don’t need to see!”



Which makes perfect sense because Huff says his school teaches science, which obviously never includes any bodily functions. Surely images of a fetus are nothing scientific, right?

The explicit video shows the argument stretching on for nearly 20 minutes.

Ruff says: “You and Trump can go to hell” and “Listen here son, I’m as gay as the day is long and twice as sunny. I don’t give a f*** what you think Jesus tells me.”

Ruff even sings “I Love a Parade” in an attempt to silence the protesters.

Warning Explicit Language In Video:



“After considering this situation in total, its divisive impact on the community, the reaction from his students, and the attention this situation has garnered nationally, it is clear to us that Dr. Ruff decided that the best thing for his students, the School District, and the community was to resign from employment effective at the close of business on Thursday, May 11, 2017,” according to a statement from the school district.

“In reviewing the video, Dr. Ruff knew that the conduct he displayed was not representative of who he is and was not representative of the kind of educational leader he prided himself on being. Dr. Ruff has acknowledged that the demonstrators had a right to be on a public sidewalk."
