    There is always a possibility that any polarizing statement expressed through attire will incite violence in a group where the majority holds a view in opposition to it. It is just human nature. Someone wearing a shirt supporting a sports rival just prior to a big game against them would probably invoke a violent response.
    The issue is that a teacher, and instructor, not a fellow student was the one who singled her out for ridicule for wearing a political t-shirt that was within the schools dresscode.

    You have no proof whatsoever the teacher is inciting violence or even(that I've seen) that the threat of violence has been confirmed and isn't a creation of the girl and her parents.
    Accusing a person supporting the KKK is like yelling "fire" in a theater. It is a provocative statement made public inciting anger. One vid shown on this thread stated the teacher went further and had other teachers explain to their students how wearing a Romney/Ryan t-shirt is like supporting the KKK. This is akin to inciting a riot.

    I also haven't excused what the teacher did. I believe in my first post on the subject I made it clear I felt she reacted in a manner that deserves disciplinary action. It is just my opinion that many of these instances we frequently see these days are, in at least some part, instigated by parents looking for publicity for their cause or financial gain through later legal action.
    You claim that the teacher was wrong, but somehow it was the parents deliberate action is at fault for the outcome. Furthermore, you insist that the parents were fishing for a lawsuit. Do you have some evidence for your opinion or do you even have evidence that other parents go on these fishing expeditions for a civil lawsuit for money (not for policy changes).

    I don't think it is at all "off the wall" to think someone might plan and execute such a scheme in a society where people jump in front of cars so they can sue the driver.
    You go further and accuse the students parents of criminal conspiracy.

    I just find it typical of the right that so many of you sympathized completely with the Texas assistant principal who paddled a female student to the point of bruising and in direct violation of current school policy yet act like this incident is the greatest abuse of power ever.
    Your comparing how a assistant principal inappropriately enacted a punishment to what a teacher did to a student?
    BTW, what was the Texas girl's offense again? Oh yeah, she mouthed off to the administrator. Funny how you didn't see that as free speech.
    So two wrongs make a right?

    Tell me, why was a high schooler wearing a pro-Romney shirt to school?
    ahh... so the girl was a racist and the teacher was acting in some sort of self defense.

    Neither do the Republicans. The student wore a t-shirt supporting the Republican candidate for President and they are not responsible for her wearing it. Likewise, I do not think the Democrats are responsible for what the teacher did being that she is an Obama supporter

Something smells fishy about this. It screams "Parents want a payout".
    So you are defending what the teacher did?

    Re: Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt

    Here's a hint to you liberals reading this who are defending this teacher.

    This is BAIT. You took it.

    Here's how it works. Every party has some nutjobs in it, that's given. So you find one nutty thing done by one nutjob from the opposing party, and you make a big news story about it. Then, as everyone rushes to defend it, they're guilty by association. Then your whole party looks like a bunch of nutjobs by association.

    The accusation of being like the KKK puts this in a "yelling fire in a theater" situation. From what I understand the teacher overspept her bounds with the demand of removal of the t-shirt since political t-shirts are allowed. The calling of the student for being like the KKK posibly put her life in danger.

    Just make your statement and i will reply to it. If you are going to type out what i say i really don't need to be involved in your little argument with yourself.
    Ok I'm sorry that you were not able to understand what i writ. Lets see if I can simplify:

    What did your post about the "sexism" of the Republicans have to do about a teacher publicly ridiculing a studnet for wearing a Romney/Ryan shirt?

    Aside from the issue who pays for contraception and the abortifacient pill. Where is the Repubs "sexist"?

    The shirt did not violate the standards of the school district for a Casual Dress Day. The issue is the teacher went outside of her authority to criticize.

    The teacher accused the student of supporting the KKK essentially by wearing it and went to other teachers to denouce the student this is akin to incitement of riot. This is endangering the student would you agree evein if the Reublican Party is "sexist"?

    Ever notice how this never happens over a shirt supporting a democrat?

    Re: Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt

    It probably does, but it never makes the news. This is nothing but an election season "interest piece" that's just like I said above... planted BAIT for the dummies who want to t\ try to defend the nutty teacher, and in the process, make themselves and their party look bad.

    I didn't take the bait. The fact is, we don't really know what happened in the situation because we weren't there. Perhaps they should teach the phrase, "sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me", in school again. I think everyone needs to lighten up.

    Re: Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt

    I'm not mean. Give this teacher the option of wearing a Romney/Ryan t-shirt every day till the election or being fired.
