Never let good manners get in the way of making a point. That seems to be the lesson learned in an unidentified classroom where a student wearing a Make America Great Again hat was dressed down by the teacher in front of everyone in his class.
The video starts with the student calling out the teacher for targeting him because of his political views.
“You’re admitting to discriminating against a certain group of people,” the student said.
Then, the teacher went on a long, incomprehensible rant about workplace “decorum.”
“I don’t get what that has to do with expressing my political views,” the student replied.
The teacher responded by accusing the student of using the hat to “provoke” others.
“Stop provoking people… People are provoked by the presence of your hat,” the teacher said.
That’s an absurd reason to ask someone to remove their hat. Students are too sensitive if they are “provoked” by a campaign slogan used by their own president.
Students are known as snowflakes for a reason. They are provoked by Charles Schultz putting the character Franklin of his Peanuts comic strip in a lawn chair on one side of a Thanksgiving table.
Really, these people are touchy.
Aside from a young man wearing a hat indoors which, strictly speaking, is a breach of manners that no one seems to care about anymore, the student makes a valid point: the teacher is discriminating against a group of people, those who support the Trump initiatives in government.
“You just need to be a bit cool, take your hat off, or get out,” the teacher pleaded…
“You’re putting me in a position where I’m either going to gather everyone up and go to another classroom, and you can remain here, like an a**hole, or you can take your hat off.”
The kid did not comply and one of his classmates caught it on video.
