Student Told To Leave Virtual High School Class Unless He Removed Trump Flag Behind Him

Colusa is a wonderful place to live.  A small community of 6,000 people.  One of the more famous residents of the area is former Governor Jerry Brown.  Now it has become famous because a teacher has decided to harass a student for the “crime” of having a Trump flag on the wall during a pretend ZOOM class.  While government schools are teaching the hate and bigotry, along with revolution of BLM and Antifa, a kid trying to get an education who supports the President of the United States is harassed.

“A 16-year-old student learning at home in a virtual high school chemistry class was told he would be kicked out of the class if he didn’t remove a “Trump 2020” campaign flag from the wall in back of him in his bedroom.

The boy’s mother told ABC10 that he left the Zoom meeting being held for his Colusa High School chemistry class before he could be removed. She said, “I made it very clear that when he repositioned the camera, either the flag needed to be removed or not in the background or she was kicking him out, and she gave him 15 seconds.”

Yet, the teacher is still teaching.  As I have said before, we are in a Civil War.  Until we admit it and start fighting back, we will lose our nation.

Student Told To Leave Virtual High School Class Unless He Removed Trump Flag Behind Him

A 16-year-old student learning at home in a virtual high school chemistry class was told he would be kicked out of the class if he didn’t remove a “Trump 2020” campaign flag from the wall in back of him in his bedroom.

The boy’s mother told ABC10 that he left the Zoom meeting being held for his Colusa High School chemistry class before he could be removed. She said, “I made it very clear that when he repositioned the camera, either the flag needed to be removed or not in the background or she was kicking him out, and she gave him 15 seconds.”

ABC10 noted, “Another student in the classroom took a recording of the virtual classroom as the teacher counted to 15.” The boy’s mother added, “At first I was furious,” noting that the teacher had since apologized. She continued, “With the distance learning we are all forced to do because of the new color chart, the school district has not addressed the students’ rights in their own home to the teachers or to us as parents.”

The Colusa Unified School District student handbook states: “The Governing Board believes that free inquiry and exchange of ideas are essential parts of a democratic education. The Board respects students’ rights to express ideas and opinions, take stands on issues, and support causes, even when such speech is controversial or unpopular.”

“Students shall have the right to exercise freedom of speech and of the press including, but not limited to, the use of bulletin boards; the distribution of printed materials or petitions; the wearing of buttons, badges, or insignia, and the right of expression in official publication,” the student handbook continues. “Student expression on school or Internet websites and online media shall generally be afforded the same protections as in print media. Students’ freedom of expression shall be limited only as allowed by Education Code 48707, 48950, and other applicable state and federal laws.”

The small town of Colusa in northern California, which the 2010 census stated was less than two square miles and lies roughly 65 miles northwest of Sacramento, had a population of roughly 6,000 in the 2010 census; Colusa County is one of the top rice-producing counties in the United States.

According to OpenSecrets.org:

Teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving Democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties since as far back as 1990, where our data begins.

Two organizations account for practically all of the contributions made by teachers unions: The National Education Association (about $20 million in 2016) and the American Federation of Teachers (almost $12 million). Both groups — which compete for members, but also collaborate with each other through the NEA-AFT Partnership — are consistently among the organizations that contribute the most money to candidates and political groups.

  1. California: land of fruits & nuts.
    I just can’t understand why the non-insane citizens out there haven’t dragged the entire bunch of Leftist maniacs from the State House, Governor’s mansion, and city halls out and thrashed them … Teacher union bosses deserve severe punishment because of their systemic child abuse.

    • Fed up with CA says

      But the conservatives are not the violent ones. If the teacher did something to the left, there would be unrelenting violence as we are seeing now.

    • California ? Are people still pretending that the problem only exists in California ? WTF is wrong with people ? Chances are YOUR OWN STATE IS IS AS BAD OR WORSE BUT HIDING IT ! I was born in California and have never been any kind of political biased citizen either way. I consider myself normal and those pretending that I as a Californian have to be some kind of Liberal can just stick it where the sun don’t shine.
      We have a corrupt government that has been rigging elections for years and now America ia waking up to what many conservatives have known for years. The people’s vote has been rigged and we have not been the ones electing Left wing activist Oligarchs to office and voting in 1000 new tax laws every year .

  2. Was the teacher fired for overt prejudice? Was the teacher fined and told she could not work for a period of time? Did the teacher’s union speak out and state this is not in the spirit of equal and honest education?

    There you go,,,, the answer to all of these is no.

    • Fed up with CA says

      It’s CA. What else would you expect. Years ago, I visited Sacramento and saw a lot of squirrels on the lawn at the capitol. My thoughts were: As I suspected, nothing but Fruits and Nuts up here.

  3. As long as the citizens put up with this libtard BS it will only get worse.

  4. I saw on tv that someone was accusing President Trump of weaponizing the DOJ. This is rather rich coming from someone whose political party weaponized EVERY government agency during Obama’s 2 terms. DOJ INCLUDED.

  5. Otis Needleman says

    Teacher needs to be fired. Apology most likely fake. Or follow them home and let them know how you feel.
