Here we go again: “Harassed” Trump supporter — this time a high school student — linked to a swastika

A free speech debate is in full throat at one Vermont high school, where one student is defending his use of a swastika.

The Burlington Free Press has the details.

LaMarche ended his comments at the December board meeting with a quote from George Washington in 1783 in support of a free press, “The freedom of speech may be taken away — and, dumb & silent we may be led, like sheep, to the slaughter.”  …

First Amendment rights also protect the use of the controversial swastika symbol unless the district can prove it is used to vandalize property or threaten a person or group, Charles C. Haynes, vice president of the Newseum Institute’s Religious Freedom Center, confirmed on Friday.
