A teacher at River Ridge High School in Woodstock, Georgia was caught on video telling students to remove their pro-Trump shirts because they’re basically swastikas and Neo-nazi slogans and the ‘MAGA’ slogan is used by neo-Nazi’s., according to Turning Point USA Saturday.
“Please go, at least for this class,” the teacher added. “I don’t care what you do in other classes.”
From Turning Point News:
The media has drawn too many comparisons between President Trump and Nazis to the point that a teacher at a high school feels compelled to order her students to not wear their Trump shirts.
The Nazis were a brutal regime that killed millions of Jews. To compare Trump to the Nazis is horrible. They orchestrated one of the largest and most horrifying genocides in human history. The holocaust was one of humanity’s lowest points. No responsible authority figure should liken a Trump shirt to a swastika. The difference is as vast as that of great good and extreme evil.
Watch the video:

The swastika (as a character 卐 or 卍) is an ancient religious icon used in the Indian subcontinent, East Asia and Southeast Asia, where it has been and remains a sacred symbol of spiritual principles in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.In the Western world, it was historically a symbol of auspiciousness and good luck, but in the 1930s, it became the main feature of Nazi symbolism as an emblem of Aryan race identity, and as a result, it has become stigmatized in the West by association with ideas of racism, hate, and mass murder.
The swastika was adopted by several organizations in pre–World War I Europe and later, and most notably, by the Nazi Party and Nazi Germany prior to World War II. It was used by the Nazi Party to symbolize German nationalistic pride. To Jews and the enemies of Nazi Germany, it became a symbol of antisemitism and terror. In many Western countries, the swastika is viewed as a symbol of racial supremacy and intimidation because of its association with Nazism.
According to Turning Point USA, the high school teacher has been identified as Lyn Orletsky from River Ridge High School in Georgia.
