Schools Censoring Trump Supporters

Public schools, which are largely Cultural Marxist institutions, have been censoring Trump supporters since Trump entered the race. This is a brief overview of three recent documented cases of public school censorship of pro-Trump sentiment.
October 23, 2015 -- An Arizona high school banned pro-Trump material -- as well as American flags -- from a football game, claiming that the US flag as well as Donald Trump are "racist."
As Breitbart found, a school official tweeted: “Anything perceived to be offensive/racist: green, USA, flags, Trump, etc. It’s not the clothing, but the intent behind it.” The message was signed by “Sunrise Staff.”
The game was supposed to go forth with a “USA” theme, Breitbart said. But the plan changed when it appeared that theme could bring on trouble.
The editorial board of the Corona student newspaper wrote: “The Tribe tweeted out that the theme for the game would be ‘USA’ and students should wear red, white and blue. Administration recognized that this theme had negative connotations. This is not something that can be denied – past games, even as far back as over eight years ago, have showcased themes and chants that appeared racist or offensive toward Marcos [school]. The theme was changed to ‘Orange Out’ after the administration decided it was best to avoid any possible offensive connotations the theme would have.”
The newspaper also warned: “Students dressed inappropriately will not be admitted.”
A Twitter user then asked for a definition of “inappropriate dress,” and the school responded with its assessment of Trump gear.
March 24, 2016 -- A public college censors pro-Trump chalk messages on a public sidewalk. Students claim they are "in pain" because of seeing the Trump chalkings.
tudents woke up Monday morning to find messages written in chalk all over campus, in support of Donald Trump. That afternoon, a group of 40 to 50 students protested. According to the student newspaper, the Emory Wheel, they shouted in the quad, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” and then students moved into the administration building calling out, “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Jim Wagner, the president of the university in Atlanta, met with the protesters and later sent an email to the campus community, saying, in part, “During our conversation, they voiced their genuine concern and pain in the face of this perceived intimidation.
“After meeting with our students, I cannot dismiss their expression of feelings and concern as motivated only by political preference or over-sensitivity. Instead, the students with whom I spoke heard a message, not about political process or candidate choice, but instead about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”
The story spread quickly, as media such as Reason mocked, “At Emory University, Writing ‘Trump 2016′ on Sidewalk Is a Racist Microaggression …,” with references to students needing “trigger warnings” and “safe spaces” to protect them from presidential candidates’ names and slogans. For many, it was another sign of college students being so overly sensitive that even political campaigning could be seen as hate speech.
Groups such as "Emory Democratic Socialists," "LatinAction," and others drafted a resolution against the Trump chalk messages, claiming that "... supporting [Trump] and arguing for his plausibility as leader of the free world has become a threat to our democracy and an implicit attack on the Muslim, Latinx, (sic) Black, and other communities at Emory and across the country ... this is not political expression, this is hate speech."

April 18, 2016 -- An elementary school has banned three 11-year-olds from performing a dance routine with Donald Trump masks.
Three 11-year-old Massachusetts boys who donned Donald Trump masks and performed as "The Dancing Donalds" were banned from entering a school talent show last week.
The trio performed a wordless, two-minute dance routine at Fiske Elementary School in Wellesley, Massachusetts, on the morning of April 13, wearing "yuge" Trump masks from an Internet vendor called Fathead.
The act drew at least one complaint to the principal, so a few hours before the official talent show that evening, the boys were given an ultimatum: Ditch the masks, or sit out the show.
The boys had to bow out of the performance.
