CAUGHT ON VIDEO=> High School Teacher Forces Students to Remove Pro-Trump Shirts Because It’s Like a “Swastika”
A teacher at River Ridge High School in Woodstock, Georgia was caught on video telling students to remove their pro-Trump t-shirts because they are just like swastikas and the ‘MAGA’ slogan is used by neo-Nazi’s.
Turning Point USA exclusively obtained a video of a high school teacher forcing her students to remove their Trump t-shirts because the ‘make American great again’ slogan is used by white supremacists. WOW!
The incident happened Thursday according to sources.
“Just like you cannot wear a Swastika to school, You cannot wear ‘make America great again’ like that. Please go, at least for this class. I don’t care what you do in other classes,” the teacher said to the students wearing the MAGA shirts.
“Wait so both of them have to like flip their shirts inside out because it says Trump on the top?, a student asked.
“Because it says ‘Make America Great Again’” the teacher replied. “The Neo-Nazis–I’m not saying about Trump, but the slogan.”
High school teacher calls Trump shirt a “swastika” and makes him take it off in class!
How is this ok!?!

**Update** CCSD released a statement regarding this incident:
On behalf of the Superintendent, this message is to provide you with more information about a story currently circulating in the media and on social media regarding an incident at one of our high schools.
In this regard, a River Ridge High School math teacher on Thursday, Aug. 31, 2017 erroneously told two students their 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 teacher additionally — and inappropriately — shared her personal opinion about the campaign slogan during class.
The school’s Principal immediately met with and apologized to these students and their families. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower 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.
While we cannot discuss disciplinary action against a teacher, we can assure you that the students face no disciplinary action. The Superintendent also is instructing all Principals to meet with their teachers and staff to review the dress code and remind them that their political opinions should not be shared with students.
Thank you for entrusting us with your children each day. We care about them and their future success!
