Students sent home from Lincoln Park, MI school for violating the dress code

...And what exactly did these students wear? Devil worshipping shirts? A shirt with profanity? Nonono...they wore (the horror!) t-shirts that commemorated 9/11. Yes, really. Students were literally sent home for wearing t-shirt commemorating the important date of 9/11/06, five years after the most horrible terrorist attack in the history of this country. Earlier that week, students were sent home for wearing t-shirts with the words of the first amendment emblazoned on them. Thankfully, the ACLU is on the case. (no, I am not being facetitious, they really are) What sort of a nation are we when students are sent home for showing their patriotism? How have we devolved to this low level? And why isn't there the big outcry from leftist groups that there was when Cindy Sheehan was banned from the State of the Union address for wearing a t-shirt? I mean, good on the ACLU, but shouldn't this be news seen on the front page of Daily Kos, and all Democrat groups? When did this nation become so hypocritical?

hear hear. I'll defend their right to wear t-shirts that say whatever they want them to say. Had they been sent home for wearing t-shirts that said "9/11 was an inside job" would you be so outraged, I wonder?

PS, hi hi there. Been awhile.

Albion,

Yes, I would be outraged. I was outraged when Cindy Sheehan was banned from the State of the Union.

And hey, how's it going?
