VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35, Orlando) -- She's only 12 years old but Ashleigh Jones is feeling the heat of this election year.
Thats because the seventh grader at New Smyrna Beach Middle School was called a racist by classmates for wearing a pro-Sarah Palin t-shirt.
Jones is volunteering at the Republican Headquarters in New Smyrna Beach. The Palin t-shirt was a gift from her fellow volunteers.
But when she wore it to school she learned just how tough politics can be.
Some of the students were calling me racist because I was Caucasian, she said. I wanted the Caucasian man to win. And I told them thats not true. Its my freedom of speech, its my opinion.
Jones' parents say they aren't mad at the school they just want everyone including their daughter to voice their opinion constructively.
Officials with Volusia County Schools said there were no referrals or complaints to the office about this incident.
Ashleigh said that more of her friends are expressing their views by wearing political t-shirts and she plans to wear hers again.
And can we ever deprogram them?

This poor child. Sometimes even at age 12 we have to buck up and show what we are made of.
u r right how do we deprogram these kids?
Is this the new Obama youth corps?
The next fifty years will be interesting.
Try calling them lazy because they're black. See how that goes.

Obama Says A Baby Is A Punishment
She needs to name names. Make it personal.
That's why there is a GFL in my wallet and a 9mm in my shoulder holster.
American Lead. Don't leave home without it.
That's the best part.
Welcome to the Brave New World, Ashleigh. This is your future.
I’m angry that a 12 year old has to be exposed to this crap.
These are the same punks that will happily turn in their parents or other adults for thought crimes.
No wait- these punks are learning their hate from their parents! Nevermind.
Yes, we can deprogram them.
Tell them that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s niece, Dr. Alveda King, is not supporting Obama.
Why? Because Alveda King, like her uncle, is prolife, and Obama is radically & unapologetically proabortion.
Homeschool... while you still can.
Barack Obama is the most divisive figure to come along in my lifetime.
“Unity” my ass.
LOL—I have an image in my head of you shooting somebody because they called you a “racist.”
It’s our last line of defense.
Stock up on curriculum now. The “change” that comes might well make all that illegal.
Apparently I'm the one that needs the deprogramming. As I seem to be in the minority.
My 10 year old was not pleased with me when I told her she could not put a McCain/Palin sticker on her bookbag, because other kids have been wearing shirts or hav stickers on the books and bags.
I just didn't think it appropriate.
Boy was I wrong --- We had her excused from schoool on Monday to attend the McCain/Palin rally in Virginia Beach, and of course she wanted to put a sticker on her bag for Tuesday and I still said no. Tuesday when she got home she said that 3 different teachers asked her if her parents had any extra McCain/Palin stickers and could she bring them in........
Murtha, western PA Racist, Maryland Hotel Racist, School kid Racist etc., what this mean is SHUT UP WHITEY!
We do have the Homeschool Legal Defense Association (join today if you haven’t) and the ACLJ,
but what good will they do if 0bama decides to “get his inner thug on”?
