It seems like we hear more reports every day of students being harassed or persecuted for being patriotic and for being Trump supporters. For example, we posted the report WEARING MAGA CLOTHING ON ‘USA DAY’ RESULTS IN PUNISHMENT FOR AZ SCHOOL STUDENTS. Students were asked to leave campus for wearing “Make America Great Again” clothing, and for displaying a pro-Trump flag on “USA Day,” part of the school’s “Spirit Week.”
In another post we shared about a WHITE STUDENT GETS MAGA HAT AND TRUMP-SUPPORTING BANNER YANKED OFF [VIDEO]. In that case, Trump-supporting student at Santa Fe High School in Santa Fe, Oklahoma got his “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) hat knocked off his head and onto the floor by another student. In the accompanying video inside that article, another student intervened, and by doing so, prevented a fistfight from breaking out since the aggressor was clearly larger – and angry.
Today we have another report, this time from Florida, in which a 14-year-old had his Make America Great Again hat yanked off his head by a public school bus aide.
Florida police are investigating a public school bus aide who allegedly ripped a “Make America Great Again” hat off the head of a 14-year-old student.

According to a report from a local Florida news outlet, The incident, which was caught on the bus’s security camera, shows that the bus aide screamed at the student for wearing a MAGA hat on the bus.
“Boy, if you don’t take that hat on this bus. Take it off. Take that hat off. Take the hat off. Now,” the aide said to the student.
“I can’t wear a hat?” the boy responded.
“No, take that hat off. Take it off. Now. Put it in your backpack. Take if off,” the aide continued.
The boy, 14-year-old Gunnar Johansson, told a local NBC affiliate that he didn’t do anything wrong. He says that the aide also threatened to turn the bus around if he didn’t remove his hat. “She, like, threatened me with a referral and threatened to turn the bus around. I said ‘write me up, I didn’t do anything wrong’, and then she yanked my hat off. It was crazy,” Johansson said in a comment. He also told reporters that other students were wearing Trump apparel at school that day. Additionally, he was allowed to put his MAGA hat back on once he got to school.
Frank Frangella, Director of Safety and Security for the Martin County School District in Florida told reporters that the district is investigating the incident. “The district is aware of the family’s allegations. We’re taking it very seriously. We’re in the process of gathering all the facts right now,” Frangella said.
The Martin County School District does not restrict political expression by their students. Johansson told local reporters that the bus aide, who has not been named, has not been on his bus since the incident.

It’s a bit spooky when you think about how the angry leftists seem to be so hair-triggered by symbols and expressions of patriotism. As a youngster in school, we routinely said the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag every morning at the beginning of the school day. There was some discussion of politics now and then between students, but it was done more on the order of a friendly sort of rivalry rather than outright expressions of hostility and violence as things seem to go today.
It surely doesn’t help that we have those in positions of influence such as Maxine Waters, who has publicly advocated the harassment of conservatives, especially those in public office. The rivalry or competition between Democrats and Republicans ran more like an undercurrent that stayed mostly out of sight before 2016, but since Crooked Hillary lost, and Trump took his place in the White House, there seems to have been an explosion of hate and discontent.
It’s a sorry thing to have to continually remind people that we are the United States Of America, not the Divided. The liberals have done a huge disservice to us by getting us all split up into factions. They’ve gotten people so focused on the supposed rights of their little sub-group that they forgot we should be standing together as One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty And Justice For All!
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
