How “Creepy” is Video Targeting Edina High School Conservative Students?
Members of the Youth Conservatives Club at Edina High School were targeted yesterday by a threatening YouTube video. The video was apparently posted by an anonymous student wearing a Guy Fawkes mask under the YouTube account of Antifa EHS.
The controversy erupted after a group of students refused to stand for the national anthem and playing of Taps last Friday at a Veterans Day school assembly.
Edina Superintendent John Schultz characterized the video as “inflammatory and creepy” yet not an apparent threat to students’ safety. But the Star Tribune reports the leader of the Edina YCC left school yesterday out of concern for his personal well-being.
While the video was pulled down from YouTube after the Edina Police Department opened an investigation, American Experiment received the following transcript of the video that will assist readers in deciding whether school officials made the right call.
