A nine-year-old boy has been banned from his California elementary school after school officials decided that his red “Make America Great Again” hat was making other students feel bad.
“They told me to take my hat off because it brings negative emotions to the other children who don’t like him,” third grade Logan Autry told a local news station. He refused to take the hat off just to make other kids feel better.
“It’s my favorite hat,” he said. “The First Amendment says I can wear my hat.” (Students at Powers-Ginsburg Elementary School are normally allowed to wear hats.)
According to local news reports, more and more of Autry’s classmates were confronting him at recess over his support of the candidate.
“I’ve told them his policies on illegal immigration, and our Second Amendment, and our First Amendment and all of our amendments that need to be protected, which are not going to be an amendment at all if Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders gets elected,” he told local KFSN news.
Autry got his hat when he attended Trump’s rally in Fresno last week, where he was able to briefly shake Trump’s hand and get an autograph. “He doesn’t speak like a politician. He speaks like a normal person. He knows what this country needs,” he said.
The district cited the need to maintain a “safe learning environment” in a statement explaining the decision to ban the hat. In fact, the district said it was proud that Autry was even allowed to wear the hat for a few days. “Our job as educators is to facilitate a safe learning environment where we encourage robust conversations of diverse and thoughts,” the statement said.
Ronald Reagan said this as well, he also said -- If we forget that we are "ONE NATION UNDER GOD" then we would be a nation gone under!!
This is shameful of these school officials who are Extreme Left-wing Liberal's!!
Please Pray for our Judeo-Christian Nation United States of America and Israel-Yisrael Everyday!! "Pray Without Without Ceasing." ( 1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV )!!

If someone wearing a Trump hat makes these kids feel bad imagine how they will feel when a member of ISIS gets through with them ! We are raising a generation of spineless cowards.
STUPID !!!! WHERE DID FREEDOM GO ????
Ridiculous! What's going to come of this young generation? My son's 11 years old, and as a young conservative, struggles with the political correctness and "sensitivity" to everything displayed in his school. May God save our Republic and protect our children.
Make America Great on a hat... How is that offensive? The Administration and any teacher involved in suspending or denying this child his right to ware his hat need to be FIRED... for denying him his civil and Constitutional rights.. no appeal, no suspension... fire them.
This type of open discrimination and the in your face attitude of the liberal Administration in most schools today must result in serious penalties. The School Board should be recalled if it will not act to protect the Students against the BULLIES IN THE ADMINISTRATION and the TEACHER who use their authority to bully these children. Fire them... don't coddle such behavior.
Love that this nine-year-old is schooling his classmates on the Constitution.
Take it to 'em, son!
California liberals should be quarantined from the rest of our country , Liberalism is a treatable disease and can be cured with mouthwash consisting of a mixture of copper jacked lead and gunpowder.
Maybe it was like this: If everyone doesn't have a Trump hat to wear, then no one is allowed? Californication, what can we expect?
