    Girl, 11, told by school not to wear 9/11 T-shirt | Fox News


    Published September 14, 2014

    The stepdaughter of a U.S. veteran was told last week that she was not allowed to wear to school a T-shirt to honor the men and women who died in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks.
    The kids wear uniforms. This isn't rocket science here. She can wear her t-shirt the rest of the day.

    I am, however, confused by all of the posts claiming this is "Fox outrage" and all of that. I see no evidence of "outrage" or anything else coming from the Fox article. There is no opining on anything and no accusations similar to what Navy made in his OP (left and political correctness, etc.). Fox wasn't the only outlet to report on this story. Those of you attacking Navy by denigrating Fox are just as guilty as he is of making false claims.
    It's just the usual gratuitous shot taken, for the sole reason it was on Fox. It would be just fine if the same report, word for word, was on MSLSD.

    I bet they took great glee in making her change the shirt, under the guise of the dress code. If she wore a Che Guevara shirt, it probably would have taken them a bit longer to get to it.

    Seriously?

    I love this place. Man, you don't find good chuckles like this, even on Comedy Central.

    Oh please, I am taking a shot at the notion because her step dad was a vet then she must be allowed to wear whatever she wants.

    The dummies enrolled her into a private school that have rules regarding school uniforms and then act shocked they can't alter the rules as they see fit.
    They should have gotten off their butts months earlier and presented their request for 9-11 day attire. You don't wait to the day of 9-11 and acted as if you are being picked on.

    BTW I am a vet too but I am not afflicted with the Vet's Tourette's Syndrome that some are and must let everyone know they are a vet every 5 minutes.

    It won't end because progressives are sensitive to Islamic values - even values that show any US recognition or remembrance of the victims of 9/11 - because in the progressive world that attack as "justified" and any individual honoring those events really bends progressives the wrong way. Hence their objection to such a shirt worn by a child that wasn't even born when 9/11 happened.

    You can bet your ass if this was some Islamic kid wearing a Tee shirt praising Allah the left wing politically correct administrators in that school would be as silent as a church mouse.

    You can bet your ass that the radical left finds "Jihad" romantic.

    None of the objectives that have been thrown at you have been about remembering 9/11. The Dress Code point, a valid one you must admit, would still apply in that case.
