Trump Derangement Syndrome(TDS) has seeped into nearly every part of society. The Trump ‘resistance’ has permeated throughout our culture, flaring up at sporting events, concerts, and even Thanksgiving dinner.
Now you can add the public schools to that list. A teacher went as far as to assault a high school girl because of her support for the president.
That’s right, a Trump-supporting high school junior was allegedly assaulted by her teacher for wearing a “Women For Trump” pin on her shirt.
The alleged assault took place at Mason High School in Michigan.
The student, Sadie Earegood, said that her teacher “grabbed it and I pulled, I tried to push his hand away and he grabbed my shoulder. He just kind of put his hand there, and then he started pulling more and more and I just started backing up.”
Her teacher then took the pin and put on his own shirt up-side-down.
How mature of him.
He is acting like a teenager in this situation.
The girl’s mother filed a complaint with the local police. She said, ‘’I made a criminal assault and larceny report against the teacher. He had no right to put his hand on my child over a pin or anything else. The First Amendment gives everyone the right to express their freedom of speech. No one should get that upset about someone wearing a political pin.”
If anything, the student should have been acknowledged for showing passion for the political process. That is something that is lacking in far too many young people today, regardless of their political beliefs.
There are many other cases of TDS.
Here are a few more examples:
A teacher’s assistant at Tabb High School wrapped a Trump flag around a student’s head. A video of the incident has since gone viral. The video clearly shows her wrapping a “Trump 2020” flag around the student as classmates jeer.
Way to act like an adult, lady.
The educator was so triggered she had to physically attack a high school student.
This is just one example of many.
Last year, a public radio host in Massachusetts wrote an op-ed in The Boston Globe.
She sounded like she was suffering from an addiction like alcoholism. She wrote, “My name is Margery, and I suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome. I am powerless over the president, who has wormed his way into my brain.”
Pretty soon there are going to be 12-step meetings for TDS.
The meeting would sound like this. My name is Margery, and I have TDS. The group: “Hi, Margery!”
Saying that you have TDS is an insult to people who have actual mental illnesses.
She goes on to tell of a story of a guy of who also suffers from TDS: “’My dentist informed me I need to wear a bite guard because I’m clenching my teeth while sleeping,’ fellow sufferer Jeff
Herman, of West Warwick, R.I., told me about his election anxiety. It’s because of Trump.”
If you see your plight in life through the lens of one man, you need to re-evaluate your life. One man should not have that much impact on you.
An article in “Psychology Today” pondered whether Trump Derangement Syndrome was real. That’s right, they took the time to write an article about a non-existent mental phenomenon.
The article titled, “Is Trump Derangement Syndrome a real mental condition?” analyzed the question. The article compared TDS to “Beatlemania.” I am not kidding.
They wrote, “Such forms of highly emotional reaction could be something akin to the fainting and screaming characterizing American Beatlemania in the 1960s. Unlike The Beatles however, the extreme reaction alleged to characterize TDS is not based on adoration and admiration, but fear and loathing.”
Welcome to 21st Century America, where everyone is losing their minds!
