Fired anti-semitic LA teacher hailed as "hero" among the loony left (updated)

Remember Patricia McAllister, the Occupy LA member who spouted anti-semitism on a video?

As a result of her rant, she lost her job as a substitute teacher. And she went even crazier: on the YouTube page that showed her video, she has been a constant presence, spouting hundreds of gems such as this from last night:
I have had the privilege of witnessing the greed of Jews. There were two Jews who were examining some jewelry, and the jewelry was very valuable. They were holding the jewelry in their hands, and they were moaning...oooo. Their hands were lifted close to their face, and they were almost slobbing at the mouth. They were standing next to each other, and their bodies were also shaking. It was a sickening sight!
She was also quoted on Fox as saying "Jews have been run out of 109 countries throughout history, and we need to run them out of this one."

The American Free Press, a crazy ultra Left website that is indexed by Google News, has an article calling Patricia McAlister a "hero" and comparing her to Rosa Parks! And they even interview her, where she adds such wonderful quotes as
The Jews have a long history of resentment because people hate them. But they’re not hated for being Jews, but due to their behavior. By going in and taking over everything, they’ve actually destroyed civilizations. When it comes to socialization, the Jews are sociopaths. They won’t assimilate. They’ve been causing problems for years, and we need to expel them from the U.S. They also need to release control of the Federal Reserve, and they can’t ever be allowed to come here again.

We need to do what Hitler did and run them out of our country. . . . I’m not talking about everyday Jews, but instead Zionists at the Federal Reserve. They’re getting more and more ruthless, and we have to do something.

I think Hitler saw something that we don’t see. I also don’t believe that 6 million Jews were killed. That’s just something to pull our heartstrings.

Jews are boastful of how significant they are and the power they have in carrying this nation. But what isn’t told is how they got their power: By lying, cheating, killing and swindling. They’re a sick people.
Wow, she is practically a female Martin Luther King!

McAllister set up an online petition (actually, a few) to find people to support her right to spew nonsense. So far, 437 have done so (although some of the signatures are jokes.)

Of course, she has the right to free speech, even anti-semitic speech (although probably not incitement.)

And the Los Angeles School Board also has the absolute right to fire her because they don't want their students to be taught by hateful, sick bigots like Patricia McAllister.

UPDATE: American Free Press is not ultra-left, but ultra-right - even if it spouts leftist talking points when it comes to Israel and includes contributions from people from Jewish Voice for Peace, for example. (h/t Jan B and others)
