A teacher was caught on video angrily ranting at a student for calmly wearing President Donald Trump’s iconic “Make America Great Again” hat.
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.
The date and location of the incident were not available, but the video was posted to YouTube on Sunday by a user identified as Frank Sharp. By Wednesday morning, it had amassed almost 200,000 views. And it’s easy to see why.
If students were truly upset about the student’s hat, which is sadly believable, then they shouldn’t have looked at it. The students should have focused on their lesson instead of letting themselves get “provoked” by a harmless hat.
But I guess the students couldn’t focus on their lesson even if they wanted to because their teacher stopped class to berate the hat-wearing student.
