A New Jersey teen wore his Trump shirt to picture day to make his political alignment clear for posterity. By the time the yearbook was published, it was evident that the photo had been tampered with, because in it, the shirt no longer bore the "Trump- Make America Great Again" motif that was on the teen's navy blue T-shirt when the picture was taken.
What in the world is going on here?
It's not clear whether the censor was undertaken at behest of the school, or of the company that took the school photos.
Did someone at the school, in a fit of rampaging anti-Americanism decide that political opinions had to be skewed? Perhaps believing the wearer had the 'wrong' political alignment. Well, whoever that was, let me tell you something, the 'Democracy' we are told rules our country is absolutely dependent on the participation of an informed electorate in order to work. Public school is supposed to be a place to learn, and people learn more in a discussion, so declaring a school a 'no political opinions zone' is nonproductive. It is even less productive in the long run when the young people are given politically correct views and talking points to parrot instead of being taught to understand the background and form their own opinions by logically evaluating all known aspects. This is just a symptom of concentrating power in government ad absurdum. Functionaries that are all-to-willing to blindly follow an ideology that will hopefully provide perks for themselves, without regard for the bigger picture and what it means for those impacted.
This was an abuse of power, an overreach and very good example of why the good people always have to be on the lookout at the local level politically.
