DAILYKENN.com -- Police in Florida are investigating a black school bus aide who allegedly yanked a MAGA hat from a white student on hat day. The incident was video and audio recorded.
Let me see if I'm correct on this: The purpose of school bus aides is to protect children, not bully them.
LISTEN TO THIS: A Martin County school bus aide is under investigation for yelling at a student then grabbing his #Trump #MAGA hat off of his head for 'hat day' at school. The school does not have clear policies against wearing political attire. @WPTV pic.twitter.com/NjxvgZKY3W— Meghan McRoberts (@MeghanWPTV) March 8, 2019
The far-left media has convinced many gullible black people that the MAGA hat is akin to a Klan hood. They are also convinced that President Donald Trump is racist, even though he has decreased the unemployment rate of blacks to historic lows.
Are these the same leftists who lecture us about tolerance and that diversity is a strength? Apparently their understanding of tolerance is highly restricted and they assume diversity in opinion is a weakness.

Surveillance video on a Martin County school bus shows a bus aide yelling at a student to take off a Trump hat, then grabbing it off of his head.
Now, the Martin County Sheriff’s Office is investigating whether the bus aide committed a crime.
Gunnar Johansson, 14, said this week, students were allowed to wear a hat to school if they made a donation to March of Dimes.
He decided to wear a Trump, Make America Great Again hat, “to show my pride in Trump America,” Johansson said.
He boarded his bus to Hidden Oaks Middle School, and within seconds, the bus aide can be heard talking to Johansson.
“Boy, if you don’t that that hat off this bus… take it off. Take that hat off… take that hat off…” the bus aide, who has not been identified, is heard saying.
“I was really confused, I was like ‘I can’t wear this?’ “Johansson said.
The bus aide is heard telling the teenager to put his hat in his backpack, and continuing to tell him to take it off.
“She, like, threatened me with a referral and threatened to turn the bus around. I said ‘write me up, I didn’t do anything wrong’, and then she yanked my hat off. It was crazy,” Johansson said.
He continued the bus ride without wearing his hat, though other students wearing hats were allowed to keep wearing them.
Johansson’s mother, Jackie Putt, said her other son and other students on the bus started texting their parents and Putt.
“I immediately went to the school,” Putt said. “I needed to know what my son just went through and what she did to my son.” Putt feels the bus aide’s actions were politically motivated.
Putt spoke with the principal, and had her son write down everything he remembered about the incident.
She said she decided to file a police report after learning she would not be able to see the video of her son until the investigation by the school district is closed.
“The district is aware of the family’s allegations. We’re taking it very seriously. We’re in the process of gathering all the facts right now,” said Frank Frangella, Director of Safety and Security for the Martin County School District.
Martin County Lieutenant Ryan Grimsdale will be reviewing the video and interviewing everyone involved.
“The crux of our investigation will be the interaction directly, physically with the child and how that panned out,” Grimsdale said.
The school board does not have a policy that specifies students can not wear political attire. Johansson said other students were wearing Trump hats during the day, and he was allowed to wear it at school.
Putt said she is proud of how her son handled the incident.
