If you kneel during our National Anthem and disrespect our country, flag, military, and police officers you’re called a “hero.”
If you bring a Trump 2020 banner to your school “America Day” celebration, you’re called a racist and punished.
Ultimate Disrespect: Hundreds of Mexicans Block Traffic, Defiantly Wave Mexican Flags Outside Trump Tower
That’s the current state of divisiveness and Trump Derangement Syndrome that’s permeated our nation’s schools.
A cheerleading squad in North Carolina was placed on probation after they posed for a picture on “America Day,” with a Trump 2020 banner.
So, this innocent expression of free speech gets reprimanded… but taking a knee during the National Anthem is considered a protected Right. This actually wasn't even done during… https://t.co/ClgzQJhIsA

The photo was taken before the August 30 football game, and made its way onto Facebook after being posted by a teacher. The image in question shows a group of seven female cheerleaders with two boys who brought the banner that said: “Trump 2020, Make America Great Again.”
Sadly and predictably since then, the North Stanly High School cheerleaders and their families have felt the backlash from merciless threats and bullying. The mother of one of the cheerleaders told Fox 46: “They’re labeling these cheerleaders terrible derogatory names, they’re calling them racists, they’re calling them bigots, these things that they are not.” [BizPacReview]
Two of the young boys from the squad said they took the picture to show patriotism, and thought they were covered by the First Amendment.
Whoops, guess again…

Matthew Mangham and Carson Palmer are the two young men in the image.
“We took a picture of the Trump flag because he is our President and it had red, white, and blue on it,” Mangham told Fox 46.
“We figured it would be covered by our first amendment rights,” said Palmer. “I’d do it again in a heartbeat.” [Bizpacreview]
The Stanly County School investigated the incident and found nothing technically “wrong, however, they warned the students to express themselves in a respectful manner, and politics are to stay out of school events.
So, let me get this straight, in America, you’re not allowed to show support for the duly elected President of the United States at school, without it being deemed “disrespectful?”
Liberalism is rotting the minds of our young people.
The actual probation punishment was issued by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association. The NCHSAA said the probation was not a “punishment” (yeah, right) but a rather a “notice of bad behavior.”
These people are insane.
The actual reprimand and probation came from the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA), claiming that the incident violated their policies on schools promoting political campaigns since the girls were in uniform representing the school. The athletic association said the probation was not a punishment, but a “notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior.” They also warned that if it happened again, fines or suspensions could be implemented.

The good news is, the cheerleaders are getting support from their community. A rally is being planned at the next football game to show support for the young kids.
“The more the merrier. I’d love everybody to line the street so that everybody going to the game goes through the biggest Trump rally they’ve ever been to. That would be phenomenal,” organizer Jeremy Onitreb said in a video posted on the event page. He urged those attending to bring “all your Trump and MAGA gear.”
Good! We love it!
