11-year-old sent to principalís office for protesting Nazi sign
Arutz Sheva ^ | 15/5/19 | Marcy Oster

An 11-year-old Tennessee girl who told her classmates to stop making the Nazi salute was sent to the principal’s office, her father said in a tweet in which he asked the public to send her messages of support.

Keith Jacks Gamble, chair of the Department of Economics and Finance at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreeboro, Tennessee, posted his request on Tuesday.

Gamble said that a student at his daughter’s McFadden School of Excellence in Murfreesboro was assigned to play Hitler for the school’s Living History project and to make the Sieg Heil salute. After students started to make the salute all over school, his daughter told them privately that she thought it was wrong.

At the final rehearsal for project, students returned “Hitler’s” salute, leading Gamble’s daughter to shout “Stop it, put your hands down!” His daughter was removed from the room for being “disrespectful,” according to a timeline Gamble posted in a screenshot on Twitter. She was then sent to the principal’s office.

“Each time, my daughter spoke out even though she was told by a teacher ‘not to address it.’ She has been bullied by classmates and targeted personally with Nazi salutes, so school feels lonely sometimes,” Gamble tweeted.

The screenshots show that a teacher told Gamble’s wife that their daughter was given “an open platform at that time to appropriately voice her concerns and share with her peers her feelings, then she was asked to not address it again.”

I think I see the problem right there.
Side question: I wonder who played KKK leader Robert Byrd.

If I’m reading this correctly, it sounds like much of the behavior was kids teasing her just to get a reaction.
This topic was brought up because of the play they were putting on, not because someone admires Nazis.

I don’t get why her father would make an online appeal to get ‘support’ for his daughter. That’s what you the parent are for. No need to make an even bigger deal of it by running to Facebook, publicizing everything.

Yeah, that wording ‘playing Hitler’ would concern me.

All you need is one smart kid who sees his opportunity...begs for the part in the ‘play’, and gives some pitched-fever speech, and suddenly every kid in the class gets all pro-Nazi-like.

Moral of the story is you can do the Nazi salute in this school, nothing happens. You complain about it, you get a time out.

The School play would have been no problem if it was about Adolf Hilter.

Actually the Nazi’s stole from some people say the Romans.
Anyway they are not the originators of it.
Maybe its time to steal it back!

I don’t think she played Hitler, she was the one who spoke out about the students giving the Nazi salute to the boy who was playing Hitler.

Can you imagine:

Billy: I just got a big part in the school play!
Dad: That’s great! Who will you be playing? Macbeth?
Billy: Hitler.

Yet, people have been suspended and/or fired from jobs for making the traditional “AOK” hand gesture.

This is going to get worse and worse until we push back....hard.

The left has no respect for anyone else or their beliefs. If they do not fear you, they will never leave you alone. FACT.

Yet a high school honor student quotes the legally elected President of the United States and gets banished from the honor society and reprimanded by the school administration.

The real question that needs to be asked is, when are the normal people going to stop taking this sh1t? Or are they going to forever be submissive to these fascists?

As abhorrent as it might be to salute that way, it is protected by that pesky 1st amendment. Can't have it both ways.
