Democratic politicians get Turning Point student group canceled over poster mocking China
A pair of Illinois Democrats have succeeded in silencing and canceling a high school Turning Point USA chapter after the group hung up a poster that criticized the Chinese Communist Party.
“Upon learning of the context of the poster that Glenbrook South’s chapter of Turning Point USA submitted it was taken down, recognizing that it wasn’t in compliance with our policies and guidelines,” District 225 administrators told The College Fix via email through a media representative when asked about the Glenbrook South High School situation.
“During the course of that investigation, the sponsor elected to discontinue his sponsorship and the District’s policies require there be a sponsor for all active clubs,” the school officials said.
When asked specifically what policies or guidelines were broken, the district said it took down the poster while there was an investigation and then the sponsor quit, meaning the group had to be disbanded.
“The poster was taken down pending an investigation,” the officials said. “During the course of that investigation, the sponsor elected to discontinue his sponsorship and the District’s policies require there be a sponsor for all active clubs. Only clubs that are active are able to post materials within the school.”
The poster included a photo from a popular online game called “Among Us,” where players try to guess who the enemy is. The poster said “China is kinda sus,” meaning suspicious or suspect, and included a cartoonish character in red with the Communist hammer and sickle on it.
The photo drew the ire of state senator Lauren Fine and state representative Jennifer Gong-Gershowitz.
“The clear intent was to stoke xenophobic anti-Asian (sentiment)."
