In Littleton, Colorado there is a high school, Dakota Ridge High School. They were scheduled to travel to Pueblo, CO for a football game, and the
school had a bus that they were going to have students ride down on. A couple of the students were wearing "Border Patrol" T-Shirts, and were told
that they could not ride the taxpayer funded bus, to a taxpayer funded event, while wearing a taxpayer funded U.S. law enforcement T-Shirt. Now,
think about that for a moment.
One of the students called his mom and she came down to the school and asked why they were not allowed on the bus. The principal didn't answer her.
She said to call the Sheriff. When the police arrived, they were forced, by law, to keep the students with Border Patrol shirts from entering the
bus, because the principal of the school didn't want them on the bus. One of the students asked the officers if he could talk to the principle and
ask why he wasn't allowed on the bus. The officer said "that's fine".
So, the student approached the principal, who was acting like he was on his cell phone. The student waited until he hung up, and asked the principal
again, "why?". The principal walked straight past the student, ignoring him, and told the police that he was feeling "harassed". Yes, this grown man
felt he was being harassed because a student asked him a question. He seems like quite the coward, in my opinion.
Needless to say, the students in the Border Patrol shirts were not allowed, and were then forced to drive to Pueblo on their own. They attended the
game, there was NO incident, and all was fine.
The following Monday, nothing happened during the school day. However, after the school day had finished, the school called the kid's mom and
informed her that her son was suspended for 3 days for questioning the principal. Let that sink in for a minute. He asked a question, and was
suspended. The OTHER students wearing the Border Patrol shirts were NOT suspended. Only the kid that had the "audacity" to question "Glorious
Leader" did. "In Soviet Union, peasant not ask Glorious Leader, 'why?'", apparently....
After the 3 days, the mom, dad, and son were forced to attend a "reentry" meeting, and were chastised by the administration. The mom was told she is
no longer allowed on school property. Imagine that, being banned from school grounds for asking a question.
Here are the T-Shirts the students wore....
Now, it doesn't stop there. After this, one of the administrators released this document...
And, to top it off, the school newspaper released this article....
This is clearly another case of political correctness gone crazy. I never dreamed in a million years that people would be offended by someone wearing
a shirt with the name of a Law Enforcement agency on it. If someone is in this country LEGALLY, they wouldn't have a problem with this shirt. My
wife is a LEGAL immigrant, and has NO problem with this. My parents were LEGAL immigrants, and have NO problem with it. So, who has the problem?
ILLEGAL aliens and those that want this country destroyed by the ILLEGAL aliens, that's who.
How long is this insanity going to continue? Welcome to 1984 people. George Orwell got it mostly correct, only he got the political parties messed
up. The left are the ones imposing New Speak. It's now "racist" to use the term "illegal". It's now "racist" to wear shirts with law enforcement
agencies on them. Students are suspended for asking a question, rather than doing want the Ministry of Love tells them. Remember, 2+2=5 in the world
these PC monsters live.
