Object On Boy’s Shirt Got Him Suspended From School… Guess What DIDN’T Happen Next


An eighth grade student in Oregon was suspended from school because the he wore a shirt that the principal didn’t like. The shirt he was wearing in support of America’s military had a picture of a rifle on it. Unbelievable. Did Obama congratulate him for his patriotism and invite him to the White House? HELL NO!


Alan Holmes has a brother who is a Marine and simply wanted to show his support for the troops, something he says he was doing when he wore a shirt with an image of the traditional soldier memorial, with a rifle, boots, and a helmet to Dexter McCarty Middle School.


Apparently the principal doesn’t like our military.

According to KATU, the principal spotted the shirt and gave him an ultimatum, switch shirts or face and in-school suspension. But Alan didn’t back down.


“The principal, I asked him, is this considered a suspension? He said yes I’ll see you tomorrow and I left,” Alan told KATU.



Suspended for wearing this? Completely ridiculous.

Alan still can’t understand why the image caused so much fuss.

Alan said he will never forget the day his older brother returned from safely after serving in Iraq, even though he was just a young boy at the time.

“I was proud of him. I remember the day he came home and I was just so happy. I was little but I still remember it, he made me happy,” Alan said.

One thing that makes Alan’s suspension so absurd is that the principal cited the school dress code as the reason for the suspension. It bars students from wearing any clothes promoting alcohol, drugs, tobacco or violence. Well, supporting America’s heroes hardly falls into any of those categories as far as I can see.


Alan’s older brother

“I was just upset. I was heartbroken. My brother, he means everything [to] me. Just being able to help and give back to the people who fought and died for us it just makes me feel good,” the young patriot said.

My good friend Sean Brown at Mad World News adds:

Unsurprisingly, the school hasn’t issued a formal statement over the incident. However, it did say that weapons printed on a shirt are inappropriate for a school setting, even if they are being depicted as the battlefield cross, which is pretty much the opposite of menacing.

But isn’t it ironic that a white boy, who was showing support for our military — and more specifically his older brother — was suspended from school only because his shirt depicted a rifle that was actually being displayed in an absolutely non-violent manner, yet a Muslim kid brings a hoax bomb to school and gets a hero’s welcome everywhere he goes? Talk about a completely backwards nation.


Here’s what I want to know — if the mere sight of a rifle printed on a shirt is enough to get a kid suspended because it promotes violence, then why isn’t a device that looks like a bomb, has all the characteristics of a bomb, and is basically a bomb missing a detonator and explosives reason for immediate intervention by authorities? I’ll tell you why – political correctness, and it’s going to be the end of our nation as we know it.
