A Harnett Central High School student was asked to remove his Trump 45 jersey at a Friday night football game. Angry liberals complained to the principal who then told the boy to remove the jersey. The student felt embarrassed that he could not wear a jersey supporting President Trump at the football game.

And his

When this happens, and no one speaks up for freedom of speech, these cretins win.

There was actually a time when this kind of monstrous silencing of speech had a consequence, and sometimes it was physically painful. My Uncle would have taken that Principle apart if he had done that to his boy.

Majority voted for Trump and the minority rules the day. Republicans took the House and the Senate, yet it´s the Democrats ruling over the Republicans. Our Republican politicians and their PC compromises sure set a weak precedence while our President is fighting daily with a laser beam focus to MAGA!

I´m guessing a nice cash payoff and a big public apology from the principal to avoid the big lawsuit his parents are about to file!!!!!!!

It´s really sad that the principal doesn´t understand free speech!!!!!

Of course, if he had a "KILL TRUMP" t-shirt, not a word would have been said!!!!!

Its easy to understand. The kid with the shirt is unlikely to cause any trouble no matter what. The whiny communists are very likely to burn the school down, kill staff and/or start a riot if they don´t get what they want.
I´m seeing now how groups like the Taliban manage to get and hold power over regular people. Its all fear of what they might do.
I fear time runs short for peaceable citizens.

The courts have previously ruled both that employees do not have unfettered free speech in the workplace and students have virtually none in a school setting outside of administrative permission (or cowardice). Minors in school have even less if that is possible. The principal however poorly accomplished is well within his authority to have told the student to remove the shirt and to leave. The student and his parents will not succeed in court unless its the court of public opinion or the voting booth but I am not sure if Durham is red enough to back them up.

Is a student denied basic constitutional rights even outside of a formal school session?

It was a Friday night football game; it did not take place during school hours. No studies were interrupted. The principal claims there were complaints. Can she back that claim?

The arbitrary exercise of authority by the principle must have been hurtful and demeaning for the student. Surely he´s entitled to some consideration here.

HAMPTON, Va.— Melania Trump made history Wednesday by flying in a V-22 Osprey aircraft during a visit to a pair of military bases.The White House says it´s the first time a first lady has flown in an Osprey. The tiltrotor aircraft takes off and lands vertically. Mrs. Trump flew round trip between Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington and Joint Base Langley-Eustis in Hampton, Virginia. First ladies usually don´t take solo helicopter rides. When they do travel by helicopter, they often are accompanying the president aboard Marine One, a more traditional aircraft.

The Pentagon has responded to President Trump’s suggestion the U.S. military could build the border wall. In a statement Wednesday, the Defense Department said it currently has no plans to build the wall, but could take part in the construction of border projects in the near future. The Defense Department said U.S. law allows the Pentagon to use its budget for border security purposes.

Herding cats may turn out to be child’s play compared with the task of corralling what could be some two dozen Democratic candidates vying for a place on the debate stage as the party tries to pick its opponent to President Trump in 2020. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez is expected to reveal his plans before Christmas for how many debates the DNC will sanction and how it will decide who makes the cut. The decisions are likely to be tricky. A debate with more than a dozen candidates could seem ridiculous, but the spectacle of shunting high-profile minority

The GOP-controlled Senate on Wednesday dealt a significant blow to President Trump by voting to advance a resolution ending U.S. support for the Saudi war in Yemen in the aftermath of Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi’s slaying. Senators agreed to begin debate on the measure despite only 11 of the chamber’s 51 Republicans joining with all Democrats to support it. The legislation would require Trump to withdraw any troops in or “affecting” Yemen within 30 days; the president has threatened to veto the bill if it reaches his desk. Senators were still haggling over amendments on Wednesday evening, but a

Woke songwriters were displeased with the apparently offensive lyrics of Frank Loesser´s Christmas classic "Baby it´s Cold Outside," so they offered up a rewriting of the song that is free from offense and predictably full-cringe. In the politically correct version of the classic, a woman is not being wooed to stay over; instead, a man is basically indifferent to having her company at all. The song was first rewritten in 2016, though it recently resurfaced due to the controversy it yet again sparked with the Social Justice Left. According to Minnesota radio station The Current, songwriters Lydia Liza and Josiah

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus

One of them asked the American president to either let them in the country or pay them $50,000 each to go home, a report said. The first group, including about 100 migrants, arrived at the consulate around 11am on Tuesday. Alfonso Guerreo Ulloa, an organizer from Honduras, told the San Diego Union-Tribune that the $50,000 figure is not a very big sum. ´It may seem like a lot of money to you,´ he said.
