This happened in New Jersey, not in Communist China.

….Parents at a New Jersey high school are outraged that their kids’ yearbook photos were Photoshopped to remove pro-Trump slogans on their clothing.

One student at Wall HS had the “TRUMP Make America Great Again” motto deleted from his T-shirt, while a junior classmate had his fleece “Trump” vest sanitized. A third student, the freshman class president, was stunned to see that her selected quote — a Trump utterance — never made it to print.

“I want all the yearbooks reissued. Everybody gets a brand-new yearbook,” fumed Joseph Berardo, whose 17-year-old son, Grant, donned the Trump T-shirt on picture day last fall.

“And I want a letter from the administration explaining why the yearbooks are being reissued, and it should be used as a teaching moment related to the First Amendment in civil discourse,” the father added….

The dad said he made sure there were no dress-code restrictions before Grant wore the MAGA shirt. “It was the first election he took an interest in, and it was an interesting way to memorialize it,” the disappointed father said.

Berardo noted that a student wearing a New Jersey Devils shirt and a kid in a Led Zeppelin tee weren’t censored. Neither was a student in a Reagan-Bush shirt who appeared in a candid group shot. He also recalled Barack Obama T-shirts in past yearbooks….

    A dress code is fine if 1) people are informed of the rules in advance, and 2) they’re not discriminatory (e.g., Obama was cool but Trump is actionable). The “tolerant” people tolerate all the trash in the world, but this is what spurs them into action.

    Then there was that other high school yearbook that got recalled because it went out with a kid’s quote of “Build that wall”.

    Wow, and these are the people teaching our children? Teacher photoshops “out” the Trump message to keep maybe 500 people from seeing it in the yearbook. But now, because of the newsworthiness of this act of limiting free political speech, millions of people have seen it instead. And there go the cockroaches scrambling for the safety of the dark.
