A photograph of almost each boy in a Wisconsin highschool’s class of 2019 giving a Nazi salute was posted on Twitter on Sunday. It is now beneath investigation by the college district and native police.
The photograph appears to have been taken earlier than Baraboo Excessive College’s junior promenade this previous spring, the Baraboo News Republic reviews. It was tweeted from the @GoBaraboo account, captioned: “We even acquired the black child to throw it up #BarabooProud,” reviews Madison365. Not all of the boys within the photograph are giving the salute, however one is flashing the “okay” signal, which some far-right trolls have rebranded as a white energy image.
Correction: The photograph of scholars doing salutes is the Class of 2019, not 2018, and was taken throughout their junior promenade.
Here’s a increased decision photograph (which was apparently taken by one of many dad and mom, and is on the mother or father’s web site as a part of their collective promenade pictures.) pic.twitter.com/lkrFln9pyz
