Teenage Student Gets Death Threats After Calling Out Trump Death Threat in a Quiz

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 smoking gun.

The smoking gun.

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:

“This is not right. You don’t do that to a sitting president — you respect the office. They used Trump’s name — insinuating gun violence and shooting the president.”
— Jim McCollum

The Teton County School District sprang into action, issuing a vague statement that read:

TCSD #1 administration learned late yesterday that a quiz was administered to a class of high school students that contained an inappropriate answer to a multiple choice question. Administration is investigating this incident and verifying the information we have received.

TCSD #1 takes seriously threats of any kind, regardless of the intent. We apologize to the students, families and community for this incident and will be addressing the issue with personnel.

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:

Jackson Hole High School English teacher Carin Aufderheide told the Jackson Hole Daily: “While I did not write the quiz questions and answers, it was my responsibility to proofread it; had I done so I can assure you I would not have distributed the quiz without first changing the offensive answer.”

Teton County School District No. 1, which previously confirmed the quiz was administered Thursday in Aufderheide’s sophomore English class, will not say who wrote it.

The district won’t confirm whether Aufderheide is on leave or if any disciplinary action will be taken. Sources say Aufderheide was not at school Monday.

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:

McCollum told me his 16-year-old son is a big Trump supporter.

”He admires the man,” he said. “He thinks the president is a cross between John Wayne and Clint Eastwood — swagger and grit.”

His son is considering enlisting in the Marines after high school — and Trump’s position on the military was a key factor.

”He loves the president’s position - to have the biggest, baddest military on the planet,” McCollum told me. “That inspired him. He wants to be a part of that.”

Should this young man enlist, he'll now know first-hand exactly what kind of America he's defending.

Stay alert. Stay alive.
