NYC school bans pro-Israel and Back The Blue shirts but allows BLM shirts

“Singh told me that my T-shirt with an Israeli flag on it and the words ‘Proud Zionist’ were ‘…politically explosive. He told me that Zionism involves the retaking of Palestinian land and is ‘offensive.'”

Jeffrey Levy, an English language teacher at MS 51 in Brooklyn, told The New York Post that the principal, Neal Singh, told Levy that he was not allowed to wear the t-shirt in the school building. The t-shirt features an Israeli flag framed by the words’ Proud Zionist.’ Singh also informed Levy that teachers and other staff members had complained about the shirt and a Back the Blue t-shirt he had worn previously.

Levy later filed a discrimination complaint about the ban on his shirt, stating: “Singh told me that my T-shirt with an Israeli flag on it and the words’ Proud Zionist’ were ‘…politically explosive. He told me that Zionism involves the retaking of Palestinian land and is ‘offensive.'”

Levy told The Post that he was not allowed to wear his shirt while other teachers wore shirts supporting BLM and other “woke” movements. “Singh has permitted other staff to wear attire with ‘Black Lives Matter,’ ‘Feminism is the radical idea that women are people,’ ‘Feminist’ and [Supreme Court Justices] ‘O’Connor & Ginsburg & Sotomayor & Kagan,'” Levy said.

In a statement, the Department of Education backed the principal; spokeswoman Katie O’Hanlon said, “Schools are not public forums for advancing personal political views, and per Department of Education regulations, employees are prohibited from using schools for political expression. This principal’s request followed complaints from students and staff and is consistent with policies around political neutrality in schools.”

Dov Hikind, leader of the Americans Against Antisemitism group, sent a letter to the school’s chancellor, Meisa Ross Porter, saying that the district officials were “anti-Semitic ignorance” and “double standards.” Hikind told the post, “How insulting. This is sick. This is pathetic. This is anti-Semitic. Can’t you say you’re a proud Jew and supportive of the people and the state of Israel? [The city DOE is] representing the extreme Left, the radical wing of the Democrat party. There should be one standard for all. But this is what’s going on in our city.”

Similar incidents of schools censoring opposing opinions have also occurred recently, included a Washington State teacher who was forced to take down a Thin Blue Line flag from her classroom, despite other teachers being allowed to put up BLM and LGBTQ+ flags around the school.

Notes from the Editor

It is of interest when you look at the Left what they do and don’t value.

I once had a liberal ask me, “How do you know what we stand for? You’re not one?” I said it was simple; you can tell by what people are willing to fight for as towards what their value system is. The Right is willing to fight for free speech, and that includes the Left’s speech, they fight for life, our Right to worship as we please, the love of this nation, for our protection by the police, and for a government that will ensure our security and safety, not one that will infringe on our rights.

The Left wants to take away our safety by stripping us the Right to defend ourselves while also moving to defund the police. They want to take away our Right to worship if what our faith teaches does not agree with their moral code, censor all speech they disagree with and find life as not worthy of protection. Thus they slaughter the most innocent before they can even defend themselves, then demand that children we have are taught and controlled by them.

It is real simple; while they mouth the words that they are for freedom, they are only speaking about their freedom, yet the Right does not yell about freedom; they silently fight to protect it.
