New Jersey: The Hitler State

Filed under: The past that is still with us,The world today — John Maass @ 6:40 pm

This is ridiculous:

U.S. District Judge Joseph A. Greenaway Jr. sided with the parents of students who want to wear Hitler Youth buttons to school to protest the school’s uniform policy.  They had been threatened with suspension by the Bayonne school district last fall for wearing the buttons. However, the judge added in his ruling that the boys will not be allowed to distribute the buttons at school.

“I’m very pleased,” said Laura DePinto, mother of one of the students. “I think it upholds the most basic of our American rights, which is to protest peacefully.”
