Third grader Logan Autry has been banned from wearing his red “Make America Great Again” Trump hat to school because it was making other students feel bad.
He has refused to leave it at home on the last days of school.
As of this writing, the officials at Powers-Ginsburg Elementary School seemed to not have pursued any further consequences.
“It’s my favorite hat,” said third grader Logan Autry. “The First Amendment says I can wear my hat.”
“They told me to take my hat off because it brings negative emotions to the other children who don’t like him,” said Logan.
Logan’s red autographed Donald Trump hat that says “Make America Great Again” caused quite the uproar in the last weeks of school.
The school caused a lot of the uproar when it banned Logan from wearing the hat anymore to school.
Logan said Thursday school officials at Powers-Ginsburg Elementary School told him to take his Donald Trump hat off due to safety concerns after other students confronted him.
“They were saying they didn’t like Trump, they were saying he was stupid,” said Logan. “I had to explain to them what Donald Trump was actually doing.”
Logan may be Trump’s biggest “little” fan. He said he wants to be a politician when he grows up and even pretends to be one now.
He attended the Trump rally in downtown Fresno with his uncle on May 27th.
“I still said no I am not taking it off and I said no,” said Logan. “Then the principal told me to take it off but I still said no.”
Logan is quite the grassroots activist at school!
“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.
The school district released a statement:
“Our job as educators is to facilitate a safe learning environment where we encourage robust conversations of diverse and thoughts. We are proud that in this case, our school achieved that goal by allowing the student to wear his hat for several days. However, it is also our responsibility to take precautions when the discourse begins to impact our school climate and interrupt school operations.”
Another school has overstepped their bounds.
