Wisconsin High School Students Won’t Be Punished For Nazi Salute Picture


A Wisconsin high school will not be punishing students who made what appeared to be a Nazi salute in a junior prom group photograph, because doing so would violate their First Amendment rights.

The picture showing around 60 students from Baraboo High School, some raising their arm in a Nazi salute, went viral after being posted on Twitter earlier in November. Photographer Peter Gust–who took the picture—has claimed that the students were waving, an account disputed by one student in the picture who did not raise his arm.

In a letter to parents Baraboo Superintendent Lori Mueller said the district can’t punish the students because they are protected by the First Amendment.

“We cannot know the intentions in the hearts of those who were involved,” she wrote Wednesday, in the letter obtained by the Wisconsin State Journal. “Moreover, because of students’ First Amendment rights, the district is not in a position to punish the students for their actions.”

  1. We don’t have rights…only animalistic high school children. This is the new anti Semitic wave…where everyone has rights except for Jews and the jews are accused of hurting everyone else’s rights.

  2. this is the same school / district that asked a holocaust survivor visting and speaking about the holocaust “if he is jewish , where is his horns” . i heard this from the daughter of the holocaust surviovor who went with her father to the school years ago. sounds like this school district does not teach about the holocaust which should be part of their curriculum.

  3. Gag the jews. The first amendment is not antisemitism.

    What a moving sham.

    We are Israel Surviving. The enemy still wants to harm. Shady world.
