In America, people are supposedly guaranteed freedom of speech. But ever since the 2016 Presidential election, freedom of speech has become a controversial topic. Because people on both sides of the political spectrum cannot see eye to eye on many issues, opponents are trying to silence the other side. And this tactic has become a threat to American freedom of speech. But now a Georgia teacher is under fire because she was filmed kicking her students out of class because they were wearing “Make America Great Again” t-shirts. And as you can imagine, this violation has sparked a debate over freedom of speech. But when you watch the secretly filmed video, you’ll hear the teacher ranting about the Pro-Trump t-shirts. And what she says will make you question her ability to teach.
During the rant while she kicks her Pro-Trump students out of class, the Georgia teacher compares the MAGA slogan to Nazi swastikas and other hate-related propaganda.
The video was originally published on a conservative student group social media group called Turning Point USA. And the incident occurred last week at the beginning of the school year. According to TheBlaze, the video was captured at River Ridge High School, which is located in the northern Atlanta suburb of Woodstock. And you’re going to shocked to hear what this teacher thinks about the president and his slogan.
In the video, the teacher is lecturing students about how bad Trump is.
“Just like you cannot wear a swastika to school, you cannot wear [a “Make America Great Again” T-shirt] like that.”
Her students are appalled that their teacher is trying to take away their freedom of speech and squelch their expression of their Republican party affiliation.
“Please go, at least for this class,” she tells the Pro-Trump students. “I don’t care what you do in other classes.”
Students immediately questioned the teacher. Although she is an authority figure, they challenged her and fought back against her punishment. The students in Woodstock, Georgia think students should be free to wear a “Make America Great Again” t-shirt or baseball cap to class – their president wears it why can’t they?
The teacher then gives the students an option, allowing them to flip the t-shirt inside out if they wanted to remain in class.
In the background of the video, you can hear the students fighting back.
“Wait, so both of them have to like flip their shirts inside out because it says Trump on the top?”
“They have to flip their shirts inside out it’s got Trump on it?”
Understanding that she has no grounds for her punishment, the teacher spat back, “Because it says “Make America Great Again.’ The neo-Nazis – I’m not saying about Trump, but the slogan.”
While Woodstock has not made the teacher publicly apologize, Georgia residents are calling for her resignation.
Do you think these teacher committed a crime? Was this a violation of these students’ first amendment right? Should she be fired?
