California is known to be a true blue state and it appears that the Liberal ideology reaches all the way into high schools. A Trump supporting teen is learning the hard way what it means to live in such an anti-Trump state.
“Fresno, CA – A politically active Clovis North student is told she can’t wear her “Make American Great Again” hat on campus. She’s now challenging the school district’s decision, saying her first amendment right is being violated.
“How does being a patriot in trying to show pride in your country, how is that inappropriate?”
Clovis North senior, Maddie Mueller doesn’t shy away from sharing her political views or wardrobe. She is a member of the “Valley Patriots.” the group asked their members to wear their maga hats on Februaury 20th. Maddie was told she couldn’t on campus, so she asked if she could wear any trump hat with school colors on it, she says she was told no, citing the dress code.”
“To my knowledge Trump is not a logo it’s a last name. It’s just our president. You can’t really claim that our president is a logo, a sports team, it’s not affiliating with any gang,” she said.
The Clovis Unified School District’s dress code does not specify if political hats or shirts are allowed.
“Our dress code is really about allowing our kids to come to school, to feel safe at school, to feel supported at school and to free of distractions so they can focus on learning.” said CUSD spokesperson Kelly Avants.”
“A spokesperson for the Clovis Unified School District told Fox News in a statement Thursday.
“It’s unfortunate that our dress code is being misrepresented as specifically singling out a MAGA hat as that is not what the policy says,” Chief Communication Officer Kelly Avants said.
“The district dress code allows for students to wear shirts or other clothing with a wide variety of sayings and/or political commentary. Unless causing an actual disruption on campus, MAGA apparel is acceptable, and this has been shared with the student,” she said.
Mueller has also received flack for wearing build the wall shirts as well. It seems like this school is backpedaling now that their bias is on display. How can MAGA be offensive?
