VIDEO: High School Riot

Emergency

(GoRealNewsNow.com) – Far-left propaganda has sadly poisoned even some of the youngest minds in today’s America as demonstrated by a high school riot in NYC where students attacked a teacher for going to a rally protesting against Islamist terrorism and standing with US ally Israel.

In a violent event at Hillcrest High School in Queens, New York City, hundreds of students engaged in a chaotic protest against a teacher who had publicly expressed support for Israel, The Daily Caller reports.

According to the New York Post, the demonstration, which lasted nearly two hours, was in response to the teacher’s Facebook photo showing her presence at a pro-Israel rally, where she held a sign stating, “I stand with Israel.”

“The teacher was seen holding a sign of Israel, like supporting it. A bunch of kids decided to make a group chat, expose her, talk about it, and then talk about starting a riot,” a student told The Post recounting how the protest originated.

The protest escalated as students filled the hallways, shouting chants in support of Islamist terrorists.

The intensity of the demonstration was marked by shouting, the waving of Palestinian flags, and the display of pro-Palestine banners.

The students also tried to enter the teacher’s classroom forcibly.

The situation further intensified with students shouting, “Everyone was yelling ‘Free Palestine!’” and “Everyone was screaming ‘[The teacher] needs to go!’”

The New York Police Department (NYPD) intervened, escorting the teacher to a secure classroom and dispersing the rally. It is also investigating a potential threat against the school.

City Councilman James Gennaro pointed out the seriousness of the situation.

“Whether it was one student or multiple students who did or said something, whatever the trigger was, something happened. And I know from my many years on the City Council that the counterterrorism task force is not engaged unless they believe it is potentially a serious situation,” he said.

The teacher expressed her distress and her commitment to respectful dialogue in comments to The Post.

“I have been a teacher for 23 years in the New York City public school system — for the last seven at Hillcrest High School. I have worked hard to be supportive of our entire student body and an advocate for our community, and was shaken to my core by the calls to violence against me that occurred online and outside my classroom last week,” she said.
