A California teenager was prohibited from wearing her “Make America Great Again” hat in school, so she’s suing the school district, VOX reports.

Maddie Mueller, a senior at Clovis North High School in Fresno, claims the school violated her First Amendment rights by forbidding her from wearing the hat on campus. Mueller was planning on wearing the hat as part of a demonstration by a group called the Valley Patriots, which asked members to wear MAGA gear on February 20, according to a local CBS affiliate.

The school cited the dress code, which states that students can’t wear certain logos on campus, as the reason why she couldn’t wear the hat, the news outlet reported. But Mueller claims that “MAGA” isn’t a logo, it’s a political statement.

“To my knowledge, Trump is not a logo. It’s a last name. It’s just our president, you can’t claim the president is a logo, sports team, or affiliated with any gang,” Mueller said. “How is being a patriot in trying to show pride in your country — how is that inappropriate?”

  1. A huge “thumbs up” to Miss. Mueller, and may Hashem give her a big win, as it would be a big win not only for her but for many other people too.

    There is especially great hypocrisy when this phenomenon — of people being blocked from expressing conservative-political-moral-religious-views — takes place at schools and colleges and universities. For these educational institutions, in their courses on American History and American Government, TEACH about the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the First Amendment and its guarantees of Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press. YET, like here, they prohibit speeches and expressions of certain conservative-moral-religious-views. [Here they give the excuse that they have no objections to those opinions, but as those opinions are “offensive” to some people, allowing their expression might cause “disturbances” (see the link here to the full article at Vox)]. When school administrations do this, IN EFFECT, they are conveying to their students the message that what is being told in the classrooms about the constitution and the freedoms is not really an “absolute” “fact.” Instead, it is more like just a lot of heavy political propaganda!
