High school censors students' Trump shirts, quotes from yearbook photos

StaffRebel Columnist

Two students have had their Donald Trump t-shirts modified in their year book photos and another student had his Trump quote removed completely.

According to Breitbart, Wyatt Dobrovich-Fago, a junior at Wall High School in New Jersey, wore a Trump sweater vest for his yearbook photo, but the logo appeared to be “cropped” or edited out.

“Maybe they just cropped it out and it wasn’t something I should worry about, they just did it,” Wyatt said.

However, his sister Montana, the freshman class president noticed the Trump quote she picked to feature in the year book was along with her picture never made it to print.

“I like thinking big, if you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big. By Donald Trump,” Montana said. Another student's FDR quote did, however, get published.

In addition, a third student, Grant Berardo, wore a Make America Great Again shirt during his year book photo, but when he opened up his book, he found it was a picture of him wearing a solid black shirt instead.

“I don’t think there was a deep-seated plot here, but I think there’s a yearbook committee and a yearbook adviser, and somewhere in the mix someone or several people decided to censor three students,” Berardo told the New York Post. “The fact that the committee found it OK to censor the president’s name or anything that wasn’t offensive is just wrong.”

Berardo's father wasn't happy either. “I want a letter from the administration explaining why the yearbooks are being reissued, and it should be used as a teaching moment related to the First Amendment in civil discourse,” he said.

The school district's superintendent said there is an investigation into incident.

RE: One of my friends sons was told to write an essay on why Trump was like Hitler
Deborah Graupner he should have took up the challenge to explain how Trump was like Jesus. Back in Jesus time, the Pharisees and the scribes look for ways to discredit Jesus so they can crucify him. They couldn’t find any fault in Him.

Now it’s 2017 there are many trying to discredit Trump so he can be impeached. But they have one problem… They cannot find any fault in him either.

One of my friends sons was told to write an essay on why Trump was like Hitler, and he was smart enough to refuse, and was failed by the Calgary High School Social Studies teacher. I told him that he should be proud that he did the right thing!

We had similar situation in Mount Royal College. A student council snowflake was offended at a Trump hat! In Calgary!

The capacity for petty vindictiveness in the “true believer” leftard is infinite and remorseless. Like something as petty as this done fore dissolute political reasons. These people are obsessed and treacherous.

One need only take a surf f face book (AKA “Face Bixxh”)to see the petty vindictiveness of leftard betas – It’s like the bitchiest, D average, most gossipy 14 year old foul mouthed dramatizing posturing ghetto girls are running the country in both academics and media

Glenn, that quote was prophetic. Did you have the feeling that political correctness would restrict speech in the future?

“Say what you think not what you aught” was the quote next to my high school graduation picture.

You’re not allowed self-expression if it goes against the agenda.

Peter you got that right, i asked that about the pride parade people who will not let gays who support Trump have a float. He has never said he hates them or will take their rights away, they just make crap up as they see fit.

Whoever coined the term “Trump Derangement Syndrome” nailed it!

Since almost all of what the freak left accuses Trump of having said or done is a flat out lie, one has to wonder what is the underlying hatred people have for Trump.

When you ask them, they just sputter out some insult or slur but can never actually explain why the call Trump that slur.

That is the very definition of irrational hatred.
