At least they don’t want the hand sign on a hat.
High School Student Threatened with Hate Crime Charge Over Infowars “OK” Baseball
A student at a high school in Missouri was accused of promoting white supremacy due to a baseball cap sold by Infowars, which features the OK hand gesture.
Parents of the Lebanon High School student say their son had his hat confiscated after administrators claimed it displayed a hate symbol.
“So yesterday I got a text from my son saying that his hat was confiscated due to the fact that it means white supremacy,” the boy’s mother wrote on Facebook, alongside an image of the hat sold at Infowarsstore.com for $14.95.
The student’s mother claimed she was unable to obtain documentation of the offense due to a delay in an update to the school server, but upon visiting the school to retrieve the hat, the boy’s father says a principal there referred to his son as a white supremacist.
“The principal even told my son that he was in fact a ‘White supremacist,’” the boy’s father described in a separate Facebook post, claiming the school was “Thus slandering and defaming the boy further! All this because my son chose to wear this baseball hat!”
According to the father, the boy thought the gesture meant that something was good.
Furthermore, the father claims school officials threatened to have his son “arrested for disturbing the peace” if he brought the hat back to school.
When asked whether his son’s rights were protected under the First Amendment, he says he was told “the constitution has no place in schools.”
Threats with no documentation? Shocking! No, the cornsternation, just like God, has no place in the “schools.” Neither do the children. Get them out!
This may be the same Lebanon High(only seems to be the one) with the 2019 Test Score Average of 31.21%. Not even a third. The same school performing better than 26.5% of high schools in MO. Wow! With the 31.4% end of course Algebra average. Very impressive. With no real problems to worry about, they have plenty of time to hate on hats. Good on ya, “school!” In their defense, they probably have plenty of hate built up – their “transformation” has been a little slow and weak.
Contrast this tyrannical idiocy with, say, homeschooling or Classical Christian Education.
