There is an investigation underway by a New Jersey school district after a New Jersey high school removes all traces of Trump from their yearbook.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Wall Township District is looking into a number of things at the school, including why a student was unable to put a President Trump quote by their yearbook photo. Other students were allowed to have a President Roosevelt quote beside theirs.
One of the students was shocked when Trump was taken off of his school photo.
“I sent it to my mom and dad, just like, ‘you won’t believe this,’” Grant Bernardo said to The Inquirer. “I like Trump but it’s history, too. Wearing that shirt memorializes the time.”
Grant’s father, Joe, wants the yearbook reprinted and he wants the school district to pay for it.
“It’s a teaching moment,” Joe said to WABC-TV. “It’s a teaching moment for all the kids to understand that someone made a bad decision. That decision has consequences and therefore we’re reissuing this because it was a violation of somebody’s First Amendment rights and there was censorship. That’s it.”
Many people on social media are livid.
Who are the real Nazis?? They should be forced to republish the yearbook and the person responsible fired.

Apparently free speech has been abolished in New Jersey. We cannot stand for this anti-liberty stance this New Jersey school has taken.
