An 11-year-old Tennessee girl was sent to the principal's office after shouting at fellow students to stop giving the Nazi 'Sieg Heil' salute, her father said.

Keith Jacks Gamble, chair of the Department of Economics and Finance at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreeboro, asked the public to send messages of support to his daughter in a tweet he posted Tuesday.
"Each time, my daughter spoke out even thought she was told by a teacher 'not to address it.' She has been bullied by classmates and targeted personally with Nazi salutes, so school feels lonely sometimes," he tweeted.

During the history project's final rehearsal, the students returned the fake Hitler's salute, prompting Gamble's daughter to shout, "Stop it put your hands down!" her father said. The girl was upset, and she was removed from the room for being "disrespectful," Gamble tweeted. She was then sent to the principal's office.

what ever lesson this school intended to teach has clearly backfired. Why is the 11 year old girl being taught she has to tolerate being subjected to Nazi saluting bullies ?

The dad said a history project at the McFadden School of Excellence involved a student playing Adolf Hitler for a "Living History" project. The student was to deliver the salute at the end of a speech.
But students started giving the salute on campus and allegedly bullied his daughter with the hand-raised-skyward gesture, the father said.

The girl told her classmates it was wrong to mimic the Nazi salute, Gamble said on social media.
The principal investigated the student's concerns and was able to confirm two times when the salute was given outside rehearsals, he said. A meeting was held with all fifth-grade students "to put a stop to any further instances," Evans said.
The school also sent a note to parents saying officials did not condone any actions that "can be interpreted as hate-filled or insensitive.
The "Living History" project will no longer contain a depiction of Hitler or the Nazi salute, Evans said.

Sounds like the entire outrage is based on what the father has reported which in turn is based on what his 11 year old child told him.

Prolly want to go a little deeper with maybe some other perspectives on the event.

Yep, this is the problem.

During the history project's final rehearsal, the students returned the fake Hitler's salute, prompting Gamble's daughter to shout, "Stop it put your hands down!"
It was a history lesson, and something all kids should learn, the kid was obviously warped by her liberal father that she should not learn about history but parrot what he and his lefty friends tell her to believe.

Its the same thing with history lessons involving re-enactments of slavery. It's supposed to hit you emotionally so it registers and you remember and realize the horrors of what it must have felt like.

These are valuable lessons for children and one of the things that hopefully prevents us from repeating it in the future.

Burying your head in the sand and pretending it never happened is nothing but an invitation to the next genocide.
