We should probably encourage this form of counter protest to let the world know we will not be suppressed.
Almost.inciting a riot? Is that like me “almost playing for the Knicks”?
Our schools are run by Marxist traitors!!
Old news. So far, it has a happy ending; he came back to school today and many (I haven’t read anything that quantifies this) other students came to school wearing the same shirt as he had on. I have not seen anything to indicate that he had any trouble at school today, but I am not in West Virginia and have only gotten my news via the internet.
In a truly free country that “teacher” would be run out of town on a rail. I personally would like to spend 5 minutes alone with him explaining the BOR.
The teacher needs to be suspended with no pay for a week for bullying a student.
Next offense should be fireable.
It was posted back when it happened.
The student is not going to be prosecuted and ended up being out of school for a day, which the school then said was sufficient discipline for creating the disturbance. The thing is, the student’s family hired an attorney who read the school’s dress code and pointed out the student did not violate the dress code but was ordered to turn the shirt inside out anyhow. The school claimed his arguing and verbiage caused a disturbance, and are in effect admitting he did not violate the dress code. I believe he returned to school afterwards wearing the same shirt. If I have any of this wrong, others can correct it.
If the world made sense, they’d have arrested those who almost rioted because of a t-shirt ... not the guy who wore the shirt.
None of these ‘educators’ seem to have a problem with kids wearing the thug Che Gueverra (or however it’s spelled..I don’t care) t shirt.
I wouldn’t let a child of mine in a public school.
What are the odds the same teacher would have lauded a student for defaming the Flag, Constitution, Christ, or heterosexuality?
Fire the teacher. Problem solved, and lesson taught to other would-be Nazis.
A commenter on that site raised a good point. Why does the article name the 14 year old boy but does not name the adult teacher? Usually in these situations, its reversed even if the press knows the name of the juvenile and adult involved in an incident. Especially when the juvenile has been arrested. “Inciting a riot” is a very serious charge. It usually means someone is inciting others to violence. Is that what the boy did? Did he get the students so worked up that they were about to attack the teacher? Did he become violent? If so, I would think the charge would be disorderly conduct. My bet is that the school went way over the line and had the kid arrested for simply not listening to the teacher, who wanted to control the kid’s political speech. I bet when the tape comes out, you aren’t going to see anything remotely illegal. When the tape comes out, I hope this kid sues the Hell out of the school for due process violations.
I have known many West Virginians over the years, consumed not a few beers singing “Rocky Top,” and have a hard time believing this would happen in WV. I can visualize the principal being tarred and feathered and run out of town. It once was all NRA.
We need a Show Your Colors Day, where every pissed off patriotic American wears a Gadsden flag t-shirt, button, ribbon, or hat to show their solidarity with the Constitution.
What is the penalty for “almost inciting a riot’? Is it similar to the penalty for “almost speeding”? Leftist teachers are out of control. Had the kid simply been yelling the F-word or wearing a Che shirt, the teacher would have been A-OK. We need to promote and encourage our youth to civil disobediance in the face of a socialist-fascist stat.
