I am officially appalled

My evening local news reported a high school student in a city not far enough away from me was forcibly removed from a political discussion class with the day's subject being immigration. The reason? He was wearing a T-shirt approving a border wall!!! He was given the choice of covering the shirt which offended the teacher and a fellow student or leaving the class. He covered the shirt then came to his senses and uncovered it. The vice principle was called in and she gave him the choice of covering the shirt or leaving school which would result in suspension. He refused and she had a security officer remove him from the school. In my USA politics breeds different points of view. Only allowing one point of view is typical of a police state. Even though I am a natural born citizen of the USA and Veteran I now feel like I am living in the former East Germany. The Progressive Liberal Socialists have long ago crossed the line and gained momentum. They must somehow be stopped!

    Liberty High School. Sounds like an oxymoron; only liberty if you tow the liberal line.
    If a Liberal throws a hand grenade at you, pick it up, pull the pin, and throw it back at them.

    1) Either there's a dress code for all or none.

    2) A good teacher would have been able to turn the dispute into a healthy political discussion, defusing tensions, and promoting the idea of carefully examining opposing views.

    A debate of everyone that agrees is an oxymoron.

    Now- - - -deduct that $25K from the salaries of the teacher and the principal, and fire both of them once the bill is paid, and justice will be served.  No point in penalizing the taxpayers of their community for their stupidity, and keeping them on the payroll!

    And the class was political in nature. I guess the politics of the class was only ONE side of the coin. Good to see the judge saw that the teacher, principal, and everyone else involved were wrong. If they want an echo chamber class then make it known right at the start that it is a left wing only class for snowflakes.

    Not only political but the subject was immigration! Point, counterpoint in a debate or even a casual political discussion is now obsolete. The (Mark Twain) school board (district) still justified their decision as correct because the school's student population was 33% Hispanic (which is not a race or nationality. It is a common language. (Spanish.) who could be offended by the shirt. Did they ask the students if they were offended? Of course not. Many of the Latino students could be first, second, or third, generation natural born U.S. citizens who dislike illegals much more than I do. They are called "mojados" (wets). I have witnessed it first hand many times.
