22. I agree.

This student was very smart and also very socially aware, a future Democrat. But still a child. And so I think over-reacted somewhat to the fact that some fellow students, as to be expected, were using it away from the play. Even if just to annoy her. That's what kids do. Especially if another kid tells them not to and how much it bothers them.

If they were doing some kind of play about that era, including Hitler, it makes sense that they would be using the salute to portray the Nazis. Maybe it isn't a good idea to re-enact that era, but that's not the issue here.

Its more about kids being kids. Or most likely boys being boys. Many just knew that Hitler was a "bad man" and I'm sure took delight in using that gesture to be the bad guy in the face of the more reserved students. To bug them. And this student got overly emotional and it was appropriate that they remove her and talk with the principal, not to discipline, but to get her to explain her side and calm down.
