A parent who claimed his son was “intimidated” by his teachers for supporting President Donald Trump slammed the school on “Fox & Friends” Monday for allowing the bias to go unchecked.
“For me it started a couple years ago when a small group of kids went to the Trump rally and there was a picture taken and all the kids were branded on the internet by dozens of other fellow students with anti-Semitic and hateful remarks,” Ed Urquiola said.
“In my case, my son is Jewish and he was branded a Nazi. Photoshopped on to his hat. It went all over the Internet.”
Urquiola said he met with officials at Newton North High School in Massachusetts to discuss the issue, but claimed the school refused to do anything about it.
“This is in a town that likes to call themselves ‘no place for hate.’ And accepting, tolerant. However, in this case, nothing was done,” he added.
Urquiola said emails have come out showing anti-Trump bias among the school’s teachers and said they need to be “re-educated and disciplined” for their conduct.
“I think they need to be re-educated and disciplined to some degree,” he said. “When it affects, you know, the classroom and the kids are being bullied and Jewish kids being called Nazis. That’s the only reason — there was no behavior. And through the course of the year, these kids were intimidated by teachers.”
“Now we have quantifiable information that there is systemic bias in the schools and something should be done about it,” Urquiola concluded.
