ResistanceMedia Responds to Accusations of "Smearing Students"

CENTREVILLE, VA: Today responded to accusations by John Mahan, an English Teacher at Falls Church High School, claiming that ResistanceMedia is "smearing" and "targeting" students.

These claims were made on Facebook, in reference to an article published November 12, regarding Falls Church High School (FCHS) distributing safety pins to students in the wake of Donald J. Trump's electoral victory. In the article, this site did publish photos of a teacher and two Falls Church students wearing their safety. However, those pictures had been publicly posted on Twitter by those depicted in them. ResistanceMedia would not have published the photos if they had not been FIRST made availailable by the students. No names or personally identifiable information were published along with the photos. 

ResistanceMedia will remove the images if the students or their parents request. Requests may be made through the comment section or by email (

  1. Except you did give out the information of a teacher from another school. And stop saying they handed out the safety pins in the wake of Trump's election. The actual way to address it is that they were handed out after much concern voiced by the students about their safety and futures. Whether that fear is connected to trump or not has not been pointed out by any teacher or student. Safety pins aren't political unless you try to make them political.

    1. 1. You are admitting that ResistanceMedia NEVER "smeared" or "targeted" a student. You're right; an article was posted which contained the PUBLICLY AVAILABLE contact information of a Prince George's County teacher who encouraged students to walk out of school and block a roadway, even cancelling a test to enable them to do so. The teacher may be liable for contributing to the delinquency of a minor for encouraging and enabling their illegal activity.

      2. "Stop saying they handed out the safety pins in the wake of Trump's election.he actual way to address it is that they were handed out after much concern voiced by the students about their safety and futures."

      If it wasn't related to the election, then why would the students suddenly develop all of this concern about their safety and futures? If there is "fear" and "concern", it is irrational, just like if a child lying in bed was afraid of the monster in the closet. Schools should not fuel and encourage such irrationality and slander against President Trump and his supporters.

      3. "Whether that fear is connected to trump or not has not been pointed out by any teacher or student." You either don't know what you're talking about or you are deliberately lying. The safety pin is a symbol of the "Not My President" movement. It has NEVER been used to signify ANYTHING else except liberal politics.

      4. "Safety pins aren't political unless you try to make them political."

      And this from the Telegraph:

      "Americans are now adopting the symbol, in light of the election of Donald Trump and the fear that his presidency will usher in an era of division and hatred."

      The safety pin IS an anti-Trump symbol. No one disputes that - not even in the liberal media.

Indoctrination Backfires: Today's High School Students Are Most Conservative in 70 Years

Numerous studies have confirmed that the high school students of today are the most politically conservative generation in the past 70 years, in spite of -- or perhaps because of -- the incessant leftist and Cultural Marxist propaganda disseminated through the public school system.

The first main survey to support this conclusion was conducted by marketing firm The Guild, which interviewed 2,000 14- and 15-year-olds late last year. The conclusions of the survey were shocking. 59 percent of "Generation Z" held conservative views on same-sex marriage, "transgender rights", and the legalization of marijuana.

"According to the report, which was published in The Times, 59 percent of Generation Z respondents said they leaned toward the conservative end of the spectrum. Only the Silent Generation was more conservative than this group.By comparison, 83 percent of Millennials and 85 percent of Generation X respondents described themselves as “quite liberal” or “very lib…

Falls Church High School Administrators Distributing Anti-Trump Protest Symbols to Teachers, Students

Update 11/21/2016: An anonymous comment on, claiming to be one of the students pictured in this article, has asked for the removal of one of the images. The image was publicly posted on Twitter by the student, but to respect the privacy of the student, the image has been blurred to hide identifying facial features. 

Photos circulated via Twitter show "safety pins" distributed to students and teachers by the staff and "student leadership" (i.e. puppet government) of Falls Church High School. The "safety pin" is a symbol first used in the aftermath of the United Kingdom's historic "Brexit" vote to leave the European Union and reclaim their national sovereignty. Now, after Donald J. Trump's electoral victory, anti-Trump protesters are using the safety pin to symbolize opposition to his policies and rhetoric.

From theIndependent Journal Review: A movement has started in the U.S. of people wearing a safety pin in order to d…
