Teacher Bullies Student Over Trump Flag in Zoom Class

Working and learning remotely as a result of COVID-19 continues to facilitate the extension of tyranny into the home. Just having a Trump flag on his bedroom wall can get a student bullied by his teacher.

From Colusa, California:

[A 16-year-old’s mother] says her son’s high school chemistry teacher did not approve of the political statement and asked him in the middle of class to get rid of it.

“You can sit up, remove the flag, or reposition your camera within the next 15 seconds or I’m kicking you out of class,” the teacher said during their virtual class.

Instead of taking the flag down, the kid waved goodbye and exited Zoom.

School and employer codes of conduct now apply to private homes, since there is no such thing as a private home during a Zoom call. That’s why smoking in your own house or having a toy Zombie Hunter gun or a BB gun can get you in trouble. So can failing to wear a mask — even if you are alone.

However,

The Colusa County Code of Conduct includes a dress code that bans clothes with alcohol or drug symbols, sexual messages, profanity, or clothing that degrades any race, but nowhere in the 38-page document does it mention politics, elections, or campaigning.

This is why the rules defining what is and is not a cancelable offense against political correctness are kept so vague. The vaguer the rules, the easier they are to apply on an arbitrary basis.

On tips from Mr. Freemarket and Steve B.
