A Washington state middle school teacher received a lot of heat for her decision to pull aside a student wearing a “Build the Wall” t-shirt.
The Chinook Middle School language arts teacher, after pulling the student aside, compared the shirt’s message to wearing a swastika, the Tri-City Herald reported.
“She asked, ‘How would you feel if someone wore a T-shirt with a swastika on it?’ ” the student’s mother, Michelle Fischer, told the Tri-City Herald. “He said, ‘You can’t compare my shirt to wearing a swastika. They aren’t the same thing.’ ”
Fischer said the teacher asked her son Jack to stay in her class during lunch to talk about the shirt and told him that it wasn’t appropriate to wear clothing with a political message.
Jack responded to the teacher that he saw a math teacher wearing a shirt with Barack Obama on it.
At which point we assume the Prozi teacher’s two rotting synapses immediately shut down, emitting copious amounts of sparks and smoke.
So “build the wall” is the same as a swastika, huh? If Godwin’s law was a thing that exists in the real universe, the entire Prozi left should be shut down on permanent basis by now. Sadly, it isn’t.
On the other hand, the best thing you can do when a howling moron is busy beclowning itself is to let it keep speaking.
That is, after all, How We Got Trump™.
Now, oddly enough and yes, we DO know that the Prozi twunt is ONLY against wearing political messages to school when she doesn’t agree with them, that’s what Prozis are and that’s what Prozis do, we still find ourself in agreement with the whole “no political stuff in school” idea.
As a matter of fact, we’ve always been in favor of school uniforms, and that there is one of the exact reasons why we are. Another reason would be that bullying, at least the part pertaining to what kind of clothes you wear, go straight out the window, not to mention that everybody looking the same encourages a sense of unity as a group and teaches the wee ones to keep their clothes looking smart.
But we digress, it’s just that we sometimes don’t understand why something that self-evidently beneficial isn’t standard in every civilized country on the planet.
