Third time posting this thread. Obviously someone doesn't want this story gaining traction.

http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/teac...

A Philadelphia high school student says she was harassed for wearing a Mitt Romney T-shirt her teacher likened to the Klu Klux Klan.
“The teacher told me to get out of the classroom. I said no,” 16-year-old Samantha Pawlucy told NBC Philadelphia.
“She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one. And then the teacher asked me,‘Are your parents Republican?’ I said,‘I don’t know.’
“She said that’s like her wearing a KKK shirt.”
Pawlucy, a sophomore at Charles Carroll High School, said she was mortified last Friday when the teacher went into the hallway to urge other students and teachers to check out the shirt.
“I was really embarrassed and shocked,” she told Philly.com .“I didn’t think she’d go into the hallway and scream to everyone.”

Unfortuantely, the teachers union will probably keep this progressive useful idiot from being fired, but she definitely deserves to be. Typical liberal display of 'tolerance', though. Too bad their brand of tolerance only applies to people they agree with.

I bet if she had worn an Obama t-shirt, she'd have been praised by the teacher.

Clearly. I heard on the news the parents called a meeting with the principle and the teacher. The teacher claimed she was just joking.

You liken a student's shirt to the KKK and threaten to write on it and "I was just joking"???

Be surprised if this gets any traction with the liberal media, but you can bet your ass if this were a white teacher and a black student every GD media outlet and social justice town crier would be having a meltdown right now. Instead they probably won't touch it. Neither will the Topix left. If they do it will just be smartass comments to try and minimize the seriousness of such behavior by a teacher against a student.

This DOES deserve to get national attention. This teacher is mentally sick and should be fired immediately.

Sad thing is, is that these teachers can do whatever they want, and they cant be fired.
It will be even worse if proposal 2 passes.

As has been said many times before, liberalism is a mental disorder.

I'm thankful that my children go to a good public school that doesn't allow for liberal interference and Marxist indoctrination. This teacher should be flogged in public!

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fas... , Definition of FASCISM

1
often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
2
: a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control <early instances of army fascism and brutality — J. W. Aldridge>

Just in case anyone thinks they can honestly pin the Fascism tag on the tea party, here is the dictionary definition of fascism.

Thank you for reading and comprehending.

Fascism : A system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together with beligerent nationalism....Sound familiar?...the American Heritage Dictionary......

Are you sure? On the really off chance you are from where it says you are.... you might want to know there is a teacher in that school district who was trying to explain to her class why socialism was better that capitalism.

I think it is awful...and i doubt she was joking....seem's politics has gotten so poisonous and mean-spirited, i would'nt want my kid wearing any shirt like that, though...and not because of freedoms involved, but more to not beg for confrontation, especially bullying.......like a bumper sticker, that begs your car getting keyed, eh?....

I haven't heard of a single Obama-festooned car being keyed, to say nothing of some conservative teacher (if any exist at this point) harassing her Obama t-shirt clad student. If you know of any examples of a conservative vandalizing an Obama car or harassing an Obama supporter please post it. Seriously. I'd like to know if there's any examples.

Interestingly, I've seen more Romney bumper stickers on cars lately than Obama on my daily commute. Seems freedom of speech will get a chance to be tested bi-partisan style. I don't go in for bumper stickers myself, but I'm sure tempted to sport a Romney t-shirt and see if any angry liberal wants to have a go over it :)

I think Romney should send her a t-shirt just like U of M did for the boy in OK that wore a Big House t-shirt to school.

you want to project fascism on the tea party? Do you know what fascism is? I thought you all were claiming Obama bailed out and took ownership of government motors? Who's for strong public education mandated from high above in Washington?
