You can’t expect to wear a Romney/Ryan shirt into a government school without consequences:
Samantha Pawlucy, a sophomore at Carroll High [in Philadelphia], said her geometry teacher publicly humiliated her by asking why she was wearing a Romney/Ryan T-shirt and going into the hallway to urge other teachers and students to mock her. …
Pawlucy said she decided to wear the shirt after researching the candidate and President Obama and concluding that she’s a Romney supporter. Her father, Richard Pawlucy, said she was especially interested in Romney’s opposition to partial-birth abortion.
Sorry Samantha. Opposing the gruesome murder of half-delivered infants is too far beyond the pale to be tolerated by the militantly tolerant.
The teacher then allegedly called a non-teaching assistant into the room who tried to write on the t-shirt with a marker. She [was] allegedly told to remove her shirt and she would be given another one.
During the incident, Samantha Pawlucy said the teacher told her that Carroll High is a “Democratic school” and wearing a Republican shirt is akin to the teacher, who is black, wearing a KKK shirt.
Richard Pawlucy is an independent. Maybe, by giving him an idea of what conservatives are defending the country from, this appalling incident will give him a push to the right.
Her father said she was visibly upset when she returned home, but at first did not want to tell her story, for fear of retaliation from the school — suspension, being moved out of the class, or expulsion.
Fortunately, it was the teacher who was switched out of the class. However, Samantha’s classmates have ostracized her for reporting the event to the principal.
