Teacher Bans Trump Shirt From Class, Compares It To A Swastika

A video was sent in showing a high school teacher who has been identified as Lyn Orletsky from River Ridge High School in Georgia by Turning Point News.

In this video the teacher appears to order her students wearing Trump shirts to turn them inside out. She didn’t want her students wearing these shirts for the same reason ‘you cannot wear a swastika to school’.

Trump Swastika Equivalency

To liken a democratically elected president to a genocidal regime is not only perversely incorrect, but indicative of a greater cultural trend.

The media has drawn too many comparisons between President Trump and Nazis to the point that a teacher at a high school feels compelled to order her students to not wear their Trump shirts.

The Nazis were a brutal regime that killed millions of Jews. To compare Trump to the Nazis is horrible. They orchestrated one of the largest and most horrifying genocides in human history. The holocaust was one of humanities lowest points.

No responsible authority figure should liken a Trump shirt to a swastika. The difference is as vast as that of great good and extreme evil.

Teachers in positions of authority have an obligation to encourage dialogue and common sense thinking. Criticism of candidates is permissible, but to use the stigma of the Nazis in such a way is not only morally bankrupt, it is harmful to our society.
