School Bans 9-Year-Old from Wearing Trump Hat Out of Sense of ‘Tolerance’

Do you support Donald Trump? Regardless of whether one does or does not, we should all be willing to support the free exchange of ideas or political perspectives.

The public school system has become a noxious breeding ground for liberal indoctrination and the implementation of groupthink. Though we often see the political ramifications of these indoctrination efforts in high school or college-aged kids, the brainwashing actually tends to occur much earlier. Children are taught that collectivism is good, they’re offered a twisted, revisionist version of history and are schooled in the art of relativism and taught that with the right warped thinking, 2+6 can be 11 and girls can be boys and vice-versa.

While education is a wonderful thing, it seems clear that nothing short of the absolute demolition of the Department of Education will put America’s youth back on the right track.

One 9-year-old boy encountered firsthand the kind of persecution that runs rampant in public schools today. Logan Autry attended a Donald Trump event and even met the GOP nominee. Autry then wore his “Make America Great Again” hat to school.

That’s when the “tolerance police” came.

Kids started picking on him for wearing the hat (which is allowed when not in the classroom). But that’s kids, right? Surely adults would be more tolerant, right?

Wrong. Instead of using this as an opportunity to teach the kids the need for tolerance and acceptance of other peoples’ viewpoints, the teachers and administrators had Logan remove the hat.

“They told me to take my hat off because it brings negative emotions to the other children who don’t like him. I still said no I’m not taking it off, then the principal told me to take it off.” Autry said.

And yet, according to liberal thought, asking children to use the appropriate restroom so as not to upset the rest of the 99% of the student body is, somehow, out of line…

The district claimed that they were proud to offer an environment conducive to “robust conversations of diversity and thoughts.”

Of course, if they were truly interested in conversations and diversity of opinions, the only move would have been to educate the children on the need to accept differences of political opinions and not force a child to remove his hat.

“We are proud that in this case, our school achieved that goal by allowing the student to wear his hat for several statements. However, it is also our responsibility to take precautions when the discourse begins to impact our school climate and interrupt school operations” the district stated.

As indicated in the statement, the district obviously failed to see this as an opportunity to further the learning environment. Children need to learn tolerance; it is a behavior that requires practice and the furtherance of rational thought. By teaching them that complaining prompts teachers to protect them from opinions different than their own, these kids have learned how to operate as special snowflakes who feel that their feelings are infinitely more important than others’ right to articulate a political perspective.

In essence, what these teachers and administrators are doing is preparing these kids to behave like the entitled animals that infest universities around the country.

As I said, public schools are little more than indoctrination centers.
