As the battle for the minds of America’s youth ramps up, yet another incident has sparked outrage, as the parents of an 11-year-old girl found out that her school had given a class assignment over someone whom their daughter considered her hero. However, it wasn’t the assignment that upset them, but the reaction of her teacher, at the Samoset Middle School in Ronkonkoma New York, to 11-year-old Bella Moscato’s choice of heroes!

In fact, Bella had chosen President Donald J. Trump as her hero for the assignment, but when the teacher asked whom she had chosen, she told Bella that she would not be allowed to choose the President, as he incites racism and hate, with his words! The teacher told her to pick another hero and said that President Trump “spreads negativity and says bad stuff about women” in front of another teacher and the class, News 12 Long Island reported. Bella was shocked by the teacher’s response to her choice, but it wasn’t even that, which bothered her! In fact, it was when the teacher said that former Democrat President Barack Obama was an acceptable choice for her to have as a hero, leaving her in shock! Bella said to Channel 12 News that…

“Donald Trump is my hero”!

Bella’s reaction to her teacher then stating that Obama was acceptable, she said…

“That’s what got me angry — I didn’t like that!”

Her parents were outraged, as her mother, Valerie Moscato equated her daughter’s treatment to intimidation and censorship…

“This was really frustrating to me because, you know, my daughter has every right to pick a hero of her choice. It’s first amendment right, freedom of speech, freedom of expression. So it was really upsetting to me that she was trying to shut her down.”

The assignment asked…

“What positive contribution has this person made to society?”

In answering the question, Bella explained that she chose President Trump as her hero because…

“Donald Trump has helped millions of people by creating a great economy. He is fighting every day to protect the people from drugs crossing the border!”

Bella’s father, Arthur Moscato, also voiced his anger and frustration at a school board meeting over her teacher’s actions and the reaction by the school’s Administration! He said…

“My daughter’s hero is the president of our country. I can’t believe anybody at the school would tell my daughter that that guy can’t be her hero. I’m incensed by this!”

Since the incident, the Superintendent says that Bella is lying, as he has released the following statement…

Bella’s parents were even further outraged, as they said that the Superintendents actions made matters worse. After all, the school didn’t just do a complete 180, but they further attacked their daughter as a liar, as a means to save face, as public outrage begins to grow! Bella’s father told the school board that…

“No one should make a child feel that way, and you’re supposed to protect my child, and I’m waiting for your reply!”
