The beat-down of free speech in America continues as liberals denied innocent children their right to support Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
It’s a scene more common than ever as liberals abuse power and bully different opinions into submission. Liberals abusing children to restrict free speech is a sickening display of anti-American policy gone crazy.
Liberals attacked the children in Centereach, NY, when they canceled a mock presidential election after students began chanting “Trump,” according to the Washington Times. The incident occurred at Jericho Elementary School where they hold a traditional contest for president.
Administrators couldn’t handle the students’ enthusiasm for the surging GOP candidate. Principal Glen Rogers claimed the chant included repeated “negative rhetoric about minorities.”
Rogers, like the rest of liberal educators today, couldn’t handle open, heated discussion of real-world events. Instead, he and his staff suppressed open discussion and free speech.
“Teachers have said they’ve heard some kids in the cafeteria chanting ‘Trump! Trump! Trump!’ or saying they don’t want Muslims here,” Rogers told ABC News.
“I mean, kids often repeat what they hear on the TV or the news, but it doesn’t mean it’s OK,” he added. “We have a diverse community here. We want all our students to feel valued.”
Value and diversity aren’t in conflict with open dialogue or constitutional freedoms. Unfortunately Rogers and his gang of educators are creating closed-minded young people too dainty to handle free speech. The failed teaching system is evident among the students.
Fifth grader Miranda Water told a local ABC News affiliate that she did not like the negativity surrounding the presidential campaign.
“Some people think Clinton’s not good. Some think Trump’s not good. So there’s a lot of arguments going on, and I don’t like that,” she said.
Instead of a mock election and free speech, the students will vote on their favorite lunch instead of openly discussing, even arguing, about an election that will affect them most of their adult lives.
Liberal school administrators need to get out of the way of education and free speech. Students chanting for a candidate and voicing an opinion, even at an early age, is good for the country.
Young people are talking about the issues while adults, particularly liberals, try to hide from reality. Coddling kids won’t serve this country into the future. Real-world arguments and free speech will develop an America that can sustain its freedoms indefinitely.
