A high school honors student in New Jersey says he was kicked out of a virtual class last week for having a Trump sign hanging up behind him.
Anthony Ribeiro, 17, a student at Toms River High School North says his chemistry teacher told him to take down the Trump 2020 flag behind him or leave the class.
It was at that point Ribiero waved goodbye to his class.
The following day, the student says his English teacher also asked him to take down the flag because it could “offend” others. Ribiero agreed to take the flag down, but now regrets doing so.
In an interview with the Asbury Park Press, he said, “Looking back I kind of regret it because I have the right in my house to do what I believe, this should not happen to anyone.”
Ribiero’s mother, Tara Jost, said her son deserves an apology.
‘For this teacher to tell him to take it down and then kick him out of class is absurd. I think they have to make an apology to my son,’ she told the Press.
Jost said her son’s vice principal says the chemistry teacher was wrong.
He was in agreement with me and said they were 100 percent wrong. He said to leave it up,’
Ribeiro noted the apparent hypocrisy of the chemistry teacher who, in ordering him to remove the banner last week, said, ‘There is no room for politics in my classroom.’
Earlier in the semester, Ribeiro said, Gilman had made a political prescription to his high school students.
”He made it a political subject talking about global warming and saying Democrats are the only choice you have to make for this because they look at facts and science,’ he said to the Press, which did not reach either teacher for comment
The district’s virtual learning rules sent to students earlier this year mentioned nothing about political statements or signs but did forbid them from wearing pajamas or attending class from bed.
A Who’s Who of Legal Minds Arranged As Campaigns Prepare For Voter Fraud
Biden’s campaign told Fox News Monday that they have “created the largest election protection program in presidential campaign history.” It involves legal, communications and political strategies in anticipation of an ”unprecedented” election. Strategies include supporting election jurisdictions, voter education to raise awareness of the options they have and “aggressive responses to vote suppression activities, and robust programs for identifying and countering foreign interference and misinformation from foreign or domestic sources” reported Fox News.
A national team for “special litigation” was also developed to focus on state-by-state protection of voter access to polls and a “fair and accurate vote count. Leading the outreach program is Eric Holder, U.S. Attorney General under the Obama administration. The Biden campaign source said despite the legal team they are putting together with hundreds of lawyers, thousands of lawyers and volunteers are involved in the overall voter protection program.
Similarly, Republicans have formed a “Lawyers for Trump” coalition aimed at protecting the “integrity” of November’s elections. “Democrats are working to shred election integrity measures one state at a time and there’s no question they’ll continue their shenanigans from now to November and beyond,” said Trump campaign general counsel Matthew Morgan.
“Lawyers for Trump” has some heavy hitters from the GOP and “Trump allied-attorneys like former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, former Attorney General Ed Meese and the president’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani” according to Fox News. Their agenda is to “Protect the Vote” for fear that “Democrats are trying to use coronavirus and the courts to legalize ballot harvesting, implement a nationwide mail-in ballot system, and eliminate nearly every safeguard in our elections.”
It is no secret Democrats are preparing for battle in the event of a Trump re-election. Trump’s 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton has already lent her two cents to Biden. She told him not to concede an election loss under “any circumstance.”
Let’s hope the American voters pick our next president, not a battle of the wits amongst legal minds.
EPIC: Trump Fans Take Over NYC’s Fifth Ave in Show of Support for POTUS
Over 100 vehicles rolled into Manhattan yesterday morning, halting traffic for at least 30 minutes as they drove by Trump Tower
Over 100 vehicles rolled into Manhattan yesterday morning, halting traffic for at least 30 minutes as they drove by Trump Tower in a show of support for President Donald Trump as he recovers from the coronavirus.
The drivers blasted their horns and waved flags while chanting “four more years!”
The group also stopped for a moment of silence to pray for the president, who was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week.

According to the New York Post, members of the group, “The Long Island Loud Majority” woke up around 4 a.m. yesterday to head to the city:
“I felt the love and energy today,” the 28-year-old Trump supporter from Farmingdale told The Post of the “prayer vigil” for POTUS and FLOTUS.
“Today the energy was electric. It was amazing — no chaos, no [middle] fingers, no drama, just supporting our president and our [men and women in] blue,” she said.
Hahnan said being at Trump Tower felt “sentimental” because “we were praying for him.”
“I’m praying for every single person in this world … including President Trump, the first lady and the whole administration,” she said.
“I pray that my country comes together because we are divided right now. We should be standing together praying for our president and our first lady. He is still a human being. He is 74 years old,” she said, noting how his age put him in the high-risk group for the disease.
Supporters have also been gathering outside of Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, where President Trump is currently recovering from his diagnosis. The president has sent those supporters chocolates, pizza, and even did a drive-by yesterday to thank them for their support.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said the president’s health continued to improve overnight and that he is “optimistic” President Trump will return to the White House later today.
“Spoke to the president this morning,” Meadows said. “He continued to improve overnight and is ready to get back to a normal working schedule.”
