Ok I will bite. I wouldnt be offended by that because its true, he did say that. Hopefully it would be seen as being a restatement of what he said and not meant to say the person wearing that agreed with the statement.

I do want to remind you that McCain did apolgize for the remarks. I have two Vietnamese children and I was not offended by them because I realized he probably has moments where he feels that way. If I was beaten and tortured by a group of people it would be hard to totally forgive that.

BUT does it belong in school?

THAT shirt crosses the line...

Come on, it is ridiculous!

On the other hand I would feel that same about a anti Mccain shirt that said - " I fool stupid poor people to vote for me and then I legislate them into the ground - MY FRIENDS."

Whatever

Its school for christ sake.

If anyone bothered to read my link way back on page one, you would see in fact kids constitutional rights are NOT forfeited at the school door. The courts already decided.

With that out of the way, and all the idiots who think the kid doesn't have free speech here silenced forever, this kid could be a poster child for an anti-liberal school movement. Every conservative in the nation would donate to a cause that beats down the blatant and rampant liberal infiltration of our school system.






lib·er·al (lbr-l, lbrl)
adj.
1.
a. Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.
b. Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.


Sounds to me like the word "liberal" could be interchanged with other "words".

SOUNDS like you are taking a LIBERAL position! THE HORROR

Redundant question as the answer is obvious.

I do not see your logic here. How is something hate speech if it is true? And I do not see how this phrase is hate speech. Can you please explain yourself.


where has obama ever said that he's for the terrorists. he has said for the last 20 months that he wanted to hunt them down and destroy them. what's wrong with you people anyway. and to bring up the point that you are using logic? what??? huh???

Perhaps you should read the persons post I was referring to before giving input so you know what was going on. In the post I replied to the person said,


But you can't go around as an eleven year old boy with hate speech on your T-shirt whether it's true or not. And this is just my opinion.

So no where did I make a claim that this was a true (or false) statement. Thanks.

Ayers is a convicted terrorist, he is friends with Obama. Then you have all the terrorist regimes across the globe who have openly stated they want Obama as the next US President. This t-shirt exudes the truth, to say otherwise is to remain in ignorance and not to deny ignorance.

Free speech is not a right in a public school system , education is a right. the school was well within their rights to suspend this kid. There is no room for so called expressing his opinions in a classroom , classrooms are for education which obviously is something this kid and his parents need more of.

A parent who is tacky and lacks class....and artistic skills too. I mean, if you want your point to come across - presentation is everything!

I'm sorry, if we're going to say the truth here, let's say the WHOLE truth:

It's not that the leaders of Iran, Syria, etc... want Obama elected.

It's that EVERY foreign leader wants him elected. France, England, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, South Africa, Nigeria, YOU NAME IT. Why? Simply because he is more likely to engage in diplomacy than unilateral action. Does that sound attractive to dictatorships? Sure. But it also is the only sane approach in today's world, and it sounds just as attractive to the ENTIRE WORLD.

So don't just say "terrorists want him elected!!!!"

Everyone wants him elected. Because it's time for America to sound and act like an educated nation, and not a hick with a gun.

You need to learn.

There is no diplomacy with someone who wants you dead beyond all reasonable doubt. No diplomacy.

I support the kid in this matter. Who are you to say that he can't wear a shirt denouncing a terrorist, excuse me - presidential candidate? You? The education system? Some of the shirts I've seen people wear about republican candidates are borderline too. Easy for the other side to try to shut up the masses by censoring and things like that though, isn't it? Just like Obama paying off google and yahoo. 1st Amendment? You can't tell me that "oh... well.... it doesn't apply in such and such on the internet..."

Chavez and the """"president"""" of Iran want this guy elected....... Last I remembered, the """"president""" of Iran claimed he was having tea with the "Mahdi" - isn't that some mythical religious figure who is supposed to show up at the end of the world? Hmm. I'm not religious - so forgive my lack of information on the specifics, but I do recall that bit of news.

Real quality guys.

Real quality.

The Saudi Royal family and the Bin Ladens... Bush's folks and both have helped finace terror. Is your point guilt by association? I was friends with a couple crips, two bloods, six eighteenth st. and various other gang bangers in school, but I was never a gang banger, never acted like a gang banger... What logic are you going with here?

Was FranK Sinatra mafioso?

Is BUSH a terrorist ( in your eyes ) since he has shaken hands, grub and drinks included, with men who help bankroll ISLAMIC JIHAD and AQ?

Are you trying to argue that Bush is a "terrorist's best friend" like on the t-shirt? Bush killed more terrorists than anyone else so how are you going to twist that one around? Osama wanted Kerry for president last time around not Bush, your argument is ridiculous.

The irony of this story, of course, is that Obama is a terrorist's worst nightmare. A globally popular US leader will reduce the global disgust in the US that Bush/Cheney have created. Love and respect for the US will reduce sympathy for terrorist causes and frustrate terrorist recruiting efforts.
McCain, on the other hand, will only make the terrorist's jobs easier. In fact McCain might just finish the job Bush has started of completely destroying our economy.
Any ways, the kid should NOT have been suspended for his t-shirt, even if he is an idiot.

This kid was suspended for not taking the shirt off.The shirt caused a huge argument in a class, so the the kid was asked to take the shirt off for causing a disruption. His sister wore a similar shirt but it did not cause any problems and she was allowed to wear it all day. The father was behind all of this.

Ayers is a convicted terrorist, he is friends with Obama.



YOUR argument is about as solid as a pile of refried beans.

YOU made the argument that association or "friendship" equates to being PRO TERRORIST. I did not.

YOU did not bolster that line of "logic", and derailed your own argument.

INSTEAD you sailed into a completely different direction and purposefully twisted my
words.

BY your "logic" I could say both Dick and Bush both gave us high gases prices because they are both OIL MEN, friends with oil men and ultra friendly with the OPEC cartel.

This is a total outrage!! It is my hope that security was called, they moved in quick, tazed him a couple hundred times, roughed him up a bit and carted him out in front of all his peers to send a clear message that thinking for yourself or showing an opinion is not tolerated at any time! /sarcasm

In all seriousness, it would be my guess that this had more to do with the parents than the child. That being said, who is he hurting? Personally I wouldnt let my kid wear a shirt like that, not because of what it says, but because it is pretty trashy and shouldnt be worn outside the trailer park, but he has every right to do it.

There is no nudity, no profanity, the only thing that shirt will hurt is my eyes and someone else's opinion.

Of course not! We all know that it's Democrats who makeup the majority of child molesters, murders, and rapists. Research has shown 83% of people in prison are Democrats or who would vote Democrat if had the intelligence to do so. That's why Democrats have been pushing legislative bills to allow felons to vote.
