Teenage Student Gets Death Threats After Calling Out Trump Death Threat in a Quiz
At the Jackson Hole High School in Wyoming, evidence of leftist bias was clearly demonstrated when Carin Aufderheide, an English teacher, distributed a quiz to her sophomore class on George Orwell’s novel “Animal Farm" with one eye-raising entry:
The multiple-choice question asked about one of the events in the book, in which a character named Napoleon has a "gun fired for a new occasion." The question asks students what the new occasion was.
The first suggested answer is "He was shooting at Trump."
One of the teenage students, an ardent supporter of President Trump, took issue with the hardly-veiled threat and brought it to the attention of his father, Jim McCollum. Outraged, he gave an interview with Todd Starnes on his radio show, saying:
The Teton County School District sprang into action, issuing a vague statement that read:
Jackson Hole High School administrators took action as well -- not so much to protect the 16-year-old student as he received death threats for daring to support his President, but more to protect the staff members responsible.
From the Seattle Times:
This is what our education system has become -- a dumping ground for political vitriol, protected by leftist power and infested with poisonous 'educators' seeking to brainwash America's youth with hateful ideologies.
Thankfully, all is not lost so long as we have students brave enough to continue to stand up to the leftist bullies teaching their classes. As Starnes describes:
Should this young man enlist, he'll now know first-hand exactly what kind of America he's defending.
Stay alert. Stay alive.
