WATCH: Four students suspended after holding pro-Trump signs

StaffRebel Columnist

Four high school students in Michigan were suspended after holding pro-Trump signs in front of a pro-immigrant banner placed by social justice group.

According to Breitbart, the students from Grand Rapids Christian High School held up handmade signs that read “Trump” and “Build the Wall” in protest of a banner that said “Immigrants Are a Blessing, Not a Burden”.

The pro-immigrant banner was created by a group called “Love Thy Neighbor”. They wanted to promote the 'positive impact' immigrants have on the lives of other students.

A video shows a teacher confronting the students as they pull their signs out of their pockets. School Superintendent Thomas DeJonge said the students were not suspended for their political views but for causing a disruption and allegedly making disrespectful comments to other students.

“To be clear, the students were not disciplined because of having expressed their political viewpoint,” he said. “Rather, they were disciplined because of the disruption they caused and disrespect they demonstrated toward fellow students and staff.”

However, the students protesting say they were trying to show both sides of the immigration debate and are in favour of legal immigration. They also said that 50 other students came and threatened them with violence.

Parents don't think the school should take either side. “Why are they bringing this political nonsense into the school?” one parent asked.

SOUND OFF in the comments: should the students have been suspended?

We can be clear that they were NOT disciplined for having expressed their political viewpoint, rather they were disciplined for having the wrong viewpoint.

That arrogantly ignorant teacher needs to meet her Islamic rapists – soon! She is the one disrupting! That is what is going to needed for these lunatic peoples to learn reality – try to rationally relate to America’s and the West’s enemy.
All you anti-Trumpers are screwed – by your own stupidity.

DISRUPTION?! Well those Libtards are going to need to learn what hard lessons are coming their way!
The MAJORITY is fed up with whiny lunatic crap! We will concede to no insane action taken – defense of Liberty is not insane and all Patriots need to don the gauntlet of preservation and defiance to insane zombie people every where! Our mere civilized existence depends on it.

Yes, Steve Brown – that is a great suggestion. That way Libtard trolls won’t need the strafing they need!
Fools always garner what they’ve seeded!

Yeah how dare they think differently. And would someone remind the idiots that no one is stopping immigrants to the US.

George Armstrong Custer had the highest rate of desertion ever recorded in American military history. In fact he got demoted over his treatment of deserters. His men hated his arrogance and distrusted his refusal to listen and take good advice. Many of them also could not enforce the policies of the government regarding natives with a clear conscience…(ironically Custer objected as well but he would express that to the bureaucrats but never to his men).

Many of his deserters went a step further…they went renegade and joined the Sioux. To do so they had to pass brutal gauntlets in order to be accepted.

The gauntlet…the hazing…the initiation…it is a time honoured practice to prove one’s self acceptable and worthy…and we have all had our turn.

Some walk it with power and fierceness…some walk it with stoic dignity…some dance through it with a grace that amazes …and some just have a presence like Daniel in the lion’s den.

It is not in any way unreasonable to expect it of any newcomer..all those who have walked the gauntlet take pride in the fact they did.

One thing is certain, this influx of heathen savages, is separating the Cowards from the Real People.

Spineless Gutless Morons all love the Savages, while real members of their respective Countries stand up and fight for their rights.

The most notable Coward that we have in Canada is the King Rat, PM Jihadi Justin.

Up Yours, Trudeau.

So were the 50 or so students who threatened the 4 students suspended? Probably not because they were a bigger group and harder to handle – they did threaten violence after all. Which seems to be an acceptable response to an opinion one doesn’t like.

I am not at all shocked that the pro-Trump protesters were quickly stopped for expressing their opinions and then suspended, as they should have been, of course!!

After all, we all know of the tolerance of the anti-Trumpers. They are just as peaceful as the “religion of peace”. So in other words, the anti-Trumpers are the gods of peace and love.

What I don’t understand is why those pro-Trumpers were not shot on sight for their despicable pro-Trump opinions. We all know that Trump is Hitler/Satan/Lucifer/etc./etc./etc./etc.

(for those who did not get it, that was sarcasm.)

Now, without the sarcasm … Don’t these anti-Trumpers realize that this 90 day ban of 7 countries is the same think Obama did when he was President? And these same jackasses did not protest at that time. Effing hypocrite brain dead fools.
