Teacher bullies student wearing MAGA hat. Media and school board brush it off — but EXCLUSIVE documents reveal what really happened

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In February, a high school student in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan wore a "Make America Great Again" hat to school.

This Grade 9 kid name Bryce Baumann likes politics; Moose Jaw is pretty conservative; so he wears the hat to school.

Then, according to Bryce's dad Darin, who appeared as a guest on John Gormley's radio show, his son's teacher told the boy he had "a face he’d like to punch." The same teacher told other kids to “boo” him, that he’s racist.

But here’s how the local newspaper ran the story:

Spat over MAGA hat at Peacock Collegiate ends in resolution

All parties moving forward after disagreement between student and teacher at Peacock over a "Make America Great Again" hat

An incident involved a teacher and a student is gaining plenty of attention on social media, but Tony Baldwin, director of education for the Prairie South School Division is pleased with how the school reacted to the incident.

A "spat"? A "disagreement"? That’s not journalism. That’s un-journalism:

Folks, someone might have been talking about something. But it’s over anyways, and we’re all moving forward.

Let me read one more line that’s just precious:

"In general I don't talk about disciplinary things, but I can tell you there was absolutely no disciplinary action taken against either the student or the teacher. That was never in the conversation," Baldwin said.

Wow. That kid is so lucky he wasn’t "disciplined"! He was equally to blame here, wasn’t he, wearing a hat? I mean, it takes two to boo; you have the booing and the person being booed. It takes two to threaten to punch someone in the face — the guy with the face, and the prospective face-puncher. So, both parties regret what happened and are moving forward — and we’ll let the kid off this time!

I was curious, so we sent in an Access to Information request to the school board for their records on the matter.

And it won't surprise you to learn that the school's records show them to be damned liars.

TONIGHT I'll show you these documents, and you can see them all, below.

Through letters and other records, you'll learn what the hat-wearing student Bryce Baumann said happened, you'll see the letter his father sent to the school, and most importantly, what that teacher Bert Redstone said to the father via email.

He lied.

Redstone made what's called an ironic apology, saying in effect, "I'm sorry your kid is so thin-skinned." He says he had no idea the student "took it personally" — but how else do you take being told you have a punchable face? Being denounced as a racist? Being told to stand there while other kids were instructed to boo you?

What a disgrace.

But hey — the local newspaper said it was all great, nothing was wrong, they didn’t even describe what happened.

Quick questions:

If some student had worn an Obama shirt to class, and a teacher had made him or her stand up, to be booed, to be called names, to be told they had a punchable face — or say, a Trudeau shirt, not that that’s a thing — do you think it would have ended this way?

With the teacher’s identity a secret; with his threat kept a secret; with no discipline whatsoever; with the school board covering for him, even blaming the kid?

And if that’s how it is with our teachers unions in right wing Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, imagine what it’s like in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal...

NEXT:  Today it was reported that "two Loblaws lobbyists, one of which helped steer the company towards a controversial $12-million federal grant to reduce the energy consumption of their refrigerators, also donated frequently to the Liberal Party and attended a partisan fundraising event with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau."

Our intrepid reporter on the Loblaws file, David Menzies, joins me to talk about this revelation.

The teacher acts very disrespectfully towards his students. I believe that any manifestations of discrimination should disappear in modern society. You can find my detailed opinion in the examples of my essays No one has the right to humiliate a student for the fact that his clothes are different from others. We do not live in the Middle Ages.

So this spineless bully, fascist and so-called teacher pulls a ‘Just-lie-in Trudeau’ on Bryce’s dad – cause he experienced the incident differently…after he was caught.

Need a better eponym for Trudeau’s mealy-mouthed, lying and evasion every time he’s caught lying and evading his guilt, than a, ‘Just-lie-in Trudeau’. Did Jihadi-Justin-Groper start the trend of ‘experiencing things differently’ than his victims and accusers. We should make him infamous for being the kind of shallow, feckless narcissist he regularly proves himself to be.
Fill in the blank, create the eponymous infamy our dear Little Potato deserves:

‘What about some Rebel Media attire to take to school’

Only for a high school kid, and one confident enough to protect him/herself. I would never send an elementary school age kid, with say a Rebel pencil case to school, unless I went as a body guard and filmed it. Its getting dangerous out there. The result of irresponsible media and politicians, encouraging wingnut haters who are blind with ignorant ill informed hatred based on lies and propaganda,

When schools are controlled and run by Marxist, then we must expect Marxism and brain dead scholars.

The Rebel needs to make pencil cases.

Boy, that school board has a rug almost as big as the Vatican’s!

Boy the KEEP AMERICA MEDIOCRE (KAM) crowd sure are getting militant.
commented 2019-05-03 05:58:08 -0400
What about some Rebel Media attire for wearing to school? Think that will trigger the teacher, especially after this show?

Overcharging a bread by $1.00 may not sound like much, but most families go through at least two loaves a week. In a year that is at a minimum $104 over charged. Over ten years, that is at least $1,040. If you complain, you get a $25 gift certificate from the gougers; at least $1,015 short. Wow! Generous to a T.

Now, after being screwed for bread, you can look at the new and shinny refrigerators Trudeau’s carbon tax is paying for. Oh wait, he gets that money from us. Damn! Screwed again…

The teacher essentially tried to incite violence against the child by suggesting to the class that he has a face one would want to punch. By forcing the class to boo the student he created a hostile and potentially violent situation for that student at that school. Defaming the child calling him a racist and without evidence or knowledge of it being true, the teacher slandered the student.

I wonder if the teacher ever considered the infamous bigotry of the Left?

Time for the parent to file a police complaint against the teacher and the school. He should consider suing the teacher, school, and school board. A preemptive action by those in authority might be to fire the teacher for threat and intimidation of a ward. Perhaps the province should pull the teacher’s certificate to teach.

Can this child ever expect an appropriate grade from this teacher? Would an “A” suddenly become a “C-”

Indeed, high time for a “pro bono” lawyer to step forward and rattle some school board cages…

Harold Hoff wrote " 1) Sue the teacher personally; sue the school and the school board. I’m thinking $10.5M. "
Harold is correct, losing their money is the only language the far left understands.
The Lawyers for the Covington boy have sued CNN and some American Networks for 700 million and they haven’t even started yet. When someone desecrates the fragile ego of a 14 year old child in public when they have done nothing wrong, he or she may never recover. The person could be damaged for life (50 or 60 years damage), thus the high settlement numbers.

I hate the public school system, its poison.

And now for the bonus question: “Can a teacher say: ‘racist’ with a broken nose?”
commented 2019-05-02 23:14:39 -0400
That teacher is lucky it wasn’t my son, he’d still be trying to get my foot out his ass.
commented 2019-05-02 22:55:06 -0400
The fact that this teacher is getting away with this is proof that the whole school system is inundated with socialists who feel like they are now untouchable. People have to start paying attention to elections for school board and school trustees. This is where these marxist activists start infiltrating the school system. Stop being lazy and start caring about your children.

I’m exceptionally steamed by the Sk MAGA hat travesty. WHY why are there not consequences to stop this kind of hateful bigotry? If he were mine, I’d….
1) Sue the teacher personally; sue the school and the school board. I’m thinking $10.5M. I take direction from Omar Khadr, who said, “this money is for all Canadians” so sue these leftists asshats for “All Canadians”.
2) Demand the immediate termination of the teacher for cause and without compensation.
3) As an aside – Punching or striking a minor in the head or face is a criminal assault offence and is not protected by Sec.43 … (had to throw that in there for those who know what I do) :-)

- Time for a voucher system that allows parents to take their kids & the portion of the school budget slotted for them & use it for private schooling where the parents would actually get a say in what goes on. This teacher, Redstone, has no business being a teacher but the union will protect him & so will the board.

- What better symbolism for the Liberal green scam. Billionaire Liberal cronies get taxpayer handouts in the name of saving the planet from certain destruction in 11 1/2 years & the Liberals actually announce it as action on “climate change”. Corrupt & incompetent once again.
commented 2019-05-02 21:38:14 -0400
What happened in Moose Jaw is typical of what goes on all over Canada and America. The fascist leftists (But I repeat myself.) have that hive mentality that they must deprogram students from evil capitalism. From grade 9 to 12, all my social studies teachers were Marxists. That was more than 45 years ago. Now schools are totally transformed to the fascist belief of Karl Marx. Odd how the supposedly non-conformist rebels are now “the man.”

Re my last comment, make that………. ‘Make Canada Straight Again’.
commented 2019-05-02 21:10:35 -0400
This teacher clearly displays his badge of ignorance, his reply to the student smells of Socialist Marxism. With educators like this, is it any wonder that kids leave school thinking of Carl Marx as a hero and Democracy a sin.
Ezra, how about some ‘Make Canada Great Again’ red hats.

We have to purge our schools of these diseased socialist’s that like to call themselves teachers!! The only thing they seem to be pumping these kids full of is the big climate change scam and it’s ok to feel like a girl even though you are a boy and vice versa!!! Leftists freaks educating kids is unacceptable !!!
commented 2019-05-02 20:44:27 -0400
Wow back in the 60’s if some teacher said anything like that he just might have got punched out.
