A New Jersey high school student claims two teachers told him to remove a flag supporting President Donald Trump from his wall at home, calling the flag “unacceptable,” ABC 13 reported.
Anthony Ribeiro, a 17-year-old student at Toms River High School North in Toms River, New Jersey, wants an apology from the school after two teachers told him to remove the flag during remote classes, according to ABC 13.
“He said, ‘If you’re not gonna take it down, it’s unacceptable, and I’m gonna have to ask you to leave the class for today.’ At that point, I waved goodbye, and I was out of the class,” Ribeiro said.
A different teacher reportedly told him to remove the flag the next day. In the second incident, Ribeiro said heobeyed the teacher out of concern that not removing the flag would affect his grades.
“If I had to do it again, I probably wouldn’t have because it’s what I stand for,” he said, according to ABC 13.
The school district agrees with Ribeiro’s family that the teachers’ requests were wrong, according to the family. The district is reportedly working with all parties involved to resolve the issue.
The family wants an apology for the incidents, which Ribeiro felt penalized him for expressing different ideas.
“To me, it’s not about politics. It’s about something in our home that we had, and my son was taken away from his studies for it. It’s very upsetting to me and very frustrating that this teacher would do that,” Ribeiro’s mother, Tara Jost, told ABC 13.
“I really just want it to not happen again because it is horrible. For somebody to be suppressed and to feel negated because she or he doesn’t follow the same ideas that another person does,” Ribeiro said.

Would the teachers say anything if it was a Biden flag?
Refuse! They have zero jurisdiction in his home.
Why arent the empty schools being used to house the homeless?
(Of course, that is based on the assumption that public schools funded by state and federal taxpayers still fly the U.S. flag.)
Come on over and remove it yourselves.
If that were me, that would be one time that my mom would have allowed me to drop an f-bomb on this idiot — and my mom would not have been very nice either.
And my stepdad would not have been nice at all — he would have unleashed a stream of Italian invective in the direction of this idiot.
Names. We want their names.
Bust the teachers’ unions.
Or blm? or Antifa? or a picture of Che?
Guys on the radio Friday asked “what if that was a Farrah poster?”
he should instead put a large biden sign up....it they say nothing, then SUE THE PANTS OFF OF THEM...
The family should sue the teacher and the school.
If this had been a BLM flag nothing would’ve been said. That’s a real problem. Teacher should be disciplined. There’s no plausible excuse.
