Is the President’s Name – Trump – Hate Speech?

Tippecanoe and Tyler too!

Is the President’s name, Trump, hate speech?

Well, apparently it is, according to the principal of a high school in Connecticut, where some of the students chanted “Trump, Trump, Trump!” to distract the other team’s free-throw shooters during a basketball game.

The principal said this “crossed the line” into hate speech. Possibly because the school represented by the other team had a lot of minority students–I don’t know. Is it forbidden to mention our president by name?

Do we need a list of presidents whose names are OK to chant while the other team is trying to sink foul shots? Let’s try a couple. “Harding, Harding, Harding!” “Tyler, Tyler, Tyler!” Nope, those didn’t work. People just said “Huh?” Then again, we’re talking public high schools here. They probably never heard of Warren G. Harding or John Tyler.

Anyhow, the principal is looking forward to a good old-fashioned grovel, and maybe another “forum on race, racism, and equity” like they had when some students chanted “SAT scores, SAT scores, SAT scores!” to imply that they, the suburban kids, were smarter than the kids in inner city schools.

Do you still think sports brings out the best in people?

Well, if we were bringing up our kids as Christians, they would, by the time they were in high school, know it’s wrong to try to hurt other people’s feelings–although I still don’t see how the president’s name does that. And if we were bringing them up to use their brains, they’d know SAT scores do not measure intelligence.

Let’s try another one. “Benjamin Harrison, Benjamin Harrison, Benjamin Harrison!” Ooh! Gotta be careful with that! A guy across the way just fell off a scaffold while I was chanting that one.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
