A Georgia high school teacher compared the “Make America Great Again” slogan to a swastika and ordered students wearing t-shirts supporting President Trump to leave her classroom.
The incident happened Aug. 31 at River Ridge High School in Cherokee County — north of Atlanta – and it was all captured on video.
Turning Point News first obtained the exclusive video and it shows the teacher explaining to students that the could not wear pro-Trump clothing “just like you cannot wear a swastika to school.”
The video, which you can watch below, also shows the teacher doubling down on her argument that the kids have to leave the classroom because the shirts say “Make America Great Again.”
“The Neo-Nazis…I’m not saying about Trump, but the slogan,” the teacher said.
I warned you in my latest book, “The Deplorables’ Guide to Making America Great Again,” that our public schools have been overrun by liberals who are more interested in indoctrinating our children instead of education our children.
And the only way to restore sanity to our local public schools is for parents and students to stand up and fight back.
And that’s exactly what happened in Cherokee County, Georgia.
“It’s ironic to me that the political left claims to promote free speech, but then attempts to silence conservative free speech,” State Rep. John Carson told AJC.com.
Parents reached out to local news reporters and local lawmakers and the school district had no choice but to apologize.
The school district said the unidentified math teacher “erroneously” told the students that shirts with campaign slogans were not permitted in class.
“Her actions were wrong, as the ‘Make America Great Again’ shirts worn by the students are not a violation of our school district dress code,” the statement read. “The teacher additionally – and inappropriately – shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.”
The district went on to say the students involved will not be punished and said the superintendent is “deeply sorry that this incident happened in one of our schools.”
“It does not reflect his expectation that all students be treated equally and respectfully by our employees,” the district said.
State Rep. Ear Ehrhart told AJC.com he was shocked by the classroom censorship.
“That individual doesn’t need to be anywhere near a classroom ever again,” he told the newspaper.
The teacher/propagandist compared the atrocities committed by the Nazis to the patriotism of young Americans. That means she is either woefully ignorant of World War II history or she perpetrated what she knew to be a lie on her young students.
Either way, the math teacher at River Ridge High School is unfit to teach in a public school classroom.
