Last week gave us a stark reminder of how so many public schools in America are loyal propaganda centers for the far-left.
That is the case even in a relatively conservative locale like Suffolk County in Long Island, NY — which unlike NYC went for Trump in 2016 with 53% of the vote.
In the working class town of Lake Ronkonkoma, Bella Moscato’s 6th grade class was given an assignment: wtire a report and give a presentation on “your hero.”
For 11-year old Bella, this was a no-brainer: her hero was Donald J. Trump.
For her teacher, Bella’s choice was out of the question. Trump was anti-woman and “spreads negativity.”
But the same teacher allowed another student to have Barack Obama as his hero!
The 45th U.S. president has been Bella’s idol since she was 8 years old, which is why she dressed up as Trump for a third-grade class project. But Bella says when she told her sixth-grade teacher that Trump was her choice for the hero project, the teacher nixed the idea.
Bella says her teacher said Trump “spreads negativity and says bad stuff about women” in front of another teacher and students in the class. The teacher told her to pick another hero.Advertisement
Bella’s mother, Valerie Moscato, says she was outraged when her daughter called her from school about the incident. She says what the teacher did amounts to intimidation and censorship.Arthur Moscato, the girl’s father, says he can’t believe someone would tell his daughter that the current U.S. president cannot be her hero.
Oh, and the parents said the school essentially called them liars when contacted by News12, claiming that they never banned Bella, and pretended not to know anything about it, incensing the family and many other parents.
The Moscatos say they want an apology from the teacher.
Is that really enough at this point? Clearly Lake Ronkonkoma has a school faculty, and board, which does not represent the views of the parents.
It’s time to clean house at Samoset Middle School. Let the progressive propagandist get a job in Manhattan if she wants to being her “woke” pussy hat politics into the classroom.
