Teacher, principal placed on leave after student wears Hitler costume for Halloween


A Utah teacher and principal were placed on paid administrative leave after a Facebook post revealed that a student at their school had dressed up as Adolf Hitler to celebrate Halloween, Deseret Newsreports.

Last week, the mother of a student at Creekside Elementary School in Davis County posted a photo of the child in question in a Facebook group for mothers in Weber and Davis County. The image's caption claimed that the student had been "Hailing Hitler" and made the Nazi salute "in the face of the few minority children who attend the school" during an event. The mother added that the costume itself was "ridiculous and distasteful as one could get."

The post, which immediately gained traction on Facebook, was also allegedly shared with Utah members of Black Lives Matter, sparking outrage.

"It just flew me into a rage because I get so many complaints about Davis School District," Lex Scott, who heads the organization's state chapter, told the newspaper.

Scott purportedly emailed Superintendent Reid Newey, who told her that the situation would be investigated. On Friday, the district announced that it had put both the principal and teacher on administrative leave although it did not specify whether the costumed student or the employees were members of Creekside. It also did not say why the principal and teacher were suspended.

"The Davis School District apologizes for what took place yesterday," the district said in a statement. "It does not tolerate speech, images or conduct that portray or promote hate in any form. The district is taking the matter very seriously and is investigating every aspect of the situation."

In a statement that same day, the United Jewish Federation of Utah denounced the costume.

"Almost all Jews and Americans regard Hitler and Nazi symbols as signifiers of the worst hatred, racism, and crimes against humanity that the world has known," the nonprofit organization said. "Dressing a child as Hitler is intolerably offensive and should never be suggested, permitted, or condoned."

According to Deseret News, the school district had previously settled a lawsuit with a family who had accused a bus driver of racially targeting their biracial child. The driver had allegedly closed the bus door on the child's backpack as he tried to leave the vehicle and drove as the student dangled outside.

So this is how you get rid of the teacher and principal you hate... just dress up as Hitler.

I’m gonna power level a bit here with some on-the-ground information from an inside source.

Apparently the teacher and principal were concerned because the student in costume had previously been bullied and they had both already made attempts to contact the student’s parents before the photo was posted. They couldn’t really do much without parental involvement and were trying to get Mom to step in with a change of clothes but the whole thing blew up before they could fully address it.

Long story short they did their best to follow protocol and got thrown under the bus for it. The local teachers’ union is furious and is trying the get the teacher and principle back to work.

It makes sense too; they can’t exactly detain the kid and the student suspension policy might not have been clear enough to give an easy solution.

Why on EARTH would it be a good idea to dress your child up as Hilter?

"You followed policy to the letter but local activists want blood so we're going to fuck you anyway" is exactly the type of response I'd expect from district bureaucrats in any situation tbh.

Should have gone as Hitler Jesus
Should have gone as Black Hitler, let them fight over who gets to be more offended.

Halloween is about dressing up as scary and evil things, right? If people are walking around dressed as serial killers from the movies or Satan then I reckon Hitler fits in just fine with them, it's not like you're condoning Hitler's beliefs or actions but the opposite.

I was going to ask because as usual, the article fails to even mention what should be an extremely obvious point of contention: how exactly are the teacher and principal guilty here?

But of course, the answer is that they're sacrificing someone who was on their side and trying to help. Social justice rewards its enemies and punishes its allies, example #6,583.

To these people, a cis white male is terrifying so anyone not in costume makes them go reeee.

Also, today I learned that BLM exist in Utah.

Mild power leveling

They are guilty for not violating the parents civil rights or students
They are also guilty for not illegally denying the student access to the school
