Posted on 10/06/2012 7:54:45 PM PDT by TigerClaws

Angered by a teenager's claims of being humiliated by a teacher over a Romney/Ryan T-shirt, students at Charles Carroll High School ignored warnings from administrators and shouted obscenities out school windows at the girl's parents Friday morning.

I suppose they do not see that they are what they want to condemn.

No doubt the teachers urged the students on.

Her parents should retain an attorney and SUE the School district, all the students involved, and the culprit teacher for VIOLATING her civil right of free speech by intimidation and threats.

There is no difference between the actions of these Gangsta Thugs and the Ku Klux Klan and they should be treated similarly.

They are TYPICAL of the Gangsta Thugs who support the piece of trash currently desecrating the Oval Office with his foul presence.

If anyone is so inclined, check out a rerun of The Weekend this uh, weekend. Joe Pags had the mother of this student on the show. The media has left out some salient facts, such as that it was "debate day" in the girl's social studies class. That's why she wore the shirt.

The mother said the teacher that gave her daughter grief was a geometry teacher. The teacher saw the shirt, went to the door, called in an aide and other students and the aide went to the daughter with a marker to try to "x" out the Romney/Ryan. The daughter physically stopped her.

She said when they later met with the principal and the teacher, the teacher refused to look at the parents, yelled at the daughter saying she "should have known" it was a joke and then started crying hysterically.

Makes you wonder how many Amy Bishops are out there, huh?

Philadelphia is a lost city and is the California of Pennsylvania;ignorance is growing and it seems the disease that is murdering America is growing and will eventually destroy all of our heritage and economy. The children are brainwashed socialists and dumb as a bag of rocks.

No kidding. Got to give the kid credit though it takes guts to wear a Republican shirt into a place like that....

Wonder if it was the same people that Heckled Romney and said they were “personally offended” that he would even visit??

My bet is the offending student was a white Christian and the mob was Amish. Isn’t there a large Amish community in Pennsylvania?

The comments at the site include the usual hysteria about the Tea Party and Mitt Romney ganging up on good people like this teacher to take away their “rights.” I really think the country is beyond salvage, and this is just further proof. These people and their daughter better go FAR underground if they want to stay in that area.

This is the same Philly that had the Blank Panthers standing outside voting places with batons..absolutely disgraceful what those students did to that girl for expressing her right to wear a Romney shirt. I blame that Union led “teacher” who told the students that the shirt was a KKK shirt, I bet you dollars for donuts she told them to scream obscenities at her. If I were the young girl’s parents I would sue the school they are NOT protecting their daughter

Filthydelphia may be lost, but Romney will carry Pa. by a comfortable margin. The high school will be bedlam on the morning of Wednesday, Nov. 7. Keep watching.

“These students are ‘saved’.”

My surmise, and I could be wrong, is that the teacher is black, the student who wore the shirt is white, and the students who are carrying on are black.

Please correct me if I’m wrong.

The comments are completely incoherent. I love the person who is talking about the TEAcher and the TEA party, I think they are saying both are obnoxious, but boy those people seem to be confused.

They actually make the imbecile lefties who comment at the WaPo seem sane.

It seems the libs who still have a few brain cells remaining read the NY Times, God bless their hearts.

Philly is racist as it gets in America. Very dangerous for this white girl on a good day. Philly and other “liberal” cities will be like South Africa one day if whites continue to tolerate diversity racism.

Why sacrifice your child when you have no plan to legally force the school to pay for violating her rights and don’t have an organization of parents and students to support and protect her? It’s just a “sacrifice” at the altar of diversity racism and violence.

The city name “Philadelphia” has become so tarnished by incidents like this that city fathers are thinking of changing the name.

They are thinking of “New Africa” as a more descriptive replacement.

Sadly I suspect the problem is a lot bigger than Philly and Cali...

IMO you just can’t get an Obama elected without a significant percentage of the population hovering around a “socialism might be okay if I can get some benefit from it” type mentality. People don’t want to admit it, but it was always clear who and what he is. The problem is too many people were just not willing to admit the truth and were determined to vote for him no matter what.

Some of the mushy middle can be swayed back and forth depending on the situation of the moment. I’d say a good 35% are just sold on the stupidity of “left is good, right is evil” BS.

Once this election is over, conservatives are going to have to start looking at ways of turning that tide or we will have generations of morons to turn back with each and every election.

Funny, but sad story.

I’m from the Philadelphia suburbs, and last week I had to see an orthopedic to get fitted with a walking boot. While in the lobby, NBC news was talking about Romney and the 47 percent comment.

My goodness the amount of ignorance that was displayed in that room was astounding. My mom had driven me or else I would have confronted the ignorance. One woman claimed that if “Romney won, the tea party crazies would rise up in the streets and form vigilante groups.” Another complained that “Romney doesn’t think they contribute to society.” They all reinforced their ridiculous ideas, like Romney would make them pay 6,000 for medical coverage, and Romney had 47 percent of America. I was astounded.

Needless to say, while sitting near the reception desk, not one of them had a co-pay of more than dollar. I’ve never met anyone with a co-pay that low, so I was kind of perplexed. I thought Obamacare didn’t take effect until next year? haha

It's OK, I have to hear this abuse because of the city those of us in Pennsylvania like to refer to as "West Camden" all the time.

We need to give Filthydelphia to New Jersey -- hell Delaware, even -- and you folks North and East of the Tejon Pass need to secede.

It’s a very small “progressive” charter high school, and the demographics are close to a third each white, black, hispanic.

The teacher further inflamed the situation by telling the other students on the next day that she was in trouble because a student (not naming names, but everyone knew) had told on her for making a joke.)
