5th Grader Suspended For Anti-Obama Shirt

An 11-year-old boy was reprimanded for wearing a homemade shirt reading "Obama is a terrorist's best friend" to school this week. Do you think it was appropriate for the school to punish the student.




AURORA (MyFOXColorado.com) - An 11-year-old in Aurora says his first amendment rights are being trampled after he was suspended for wearing a homemade shirt that reads "Obama is a terrorist's best friend."

The fifth grader at Aurora Frontier K-8 School wore it on a day when students were asked to wear red, white and blue to show their patriotism.

The boy's father Dann Dalton describes himself as a "proud conservative" who has taken part in some controversial anti-abortion protests. Dalton says the school made a major mistake by suspending his son for wearing the shirt.

"It's the public school system," Dalton says. "Let's be honest, it's full of liberal loons."

According the the boy's father, the school district told the student, Daxx Dalton, that he had the choice of changing his shirt, turning his shirt inside out or being suspended.

Daxx chose suspension.

"They're taking away my right of freedom of speech," he says. "If I have the right to wear this shirt I'm going to use it. And if the only way to use it is get suspended, then I'm going to get suspended."

Daxx's dad agrees with him and is encouraging his son to stand his ground. "The facts are his rights were violated. Period."

Aurora Public Schools would not talk about the case but said the district "Respects a student's right to free speech, such as the right to wear specific clothing," but administrators say they review any situation that interrupts the learning environment.

Paperwork submitted by the school district says Daxx Dalton was not suspended for wearing the shirt, but for willful disobedience and defiance.

The boy's father says he intends to pursue a lawsuit against the district.

I assumed that Bottom had graduated from Fifth Grade by now.

Hey, for someone who desires RESPECT so much, you shouldn't be so stingy in granting same.

But for the matter at hand, I'd support the young man's right to wear a shirt that tells the truth. I hope he gets some nice silk-screened ones to sell.

And for context, the Aurora school system would probably be considered the most liberal and diverse, second to Denver itself. And some of the boy's school mates accused him of being racist! Can you imagine that?

I don't really desire respect. I simply take what comes my way, and have been blessed.

But you are correct. I will rephrase my JOKE if it makes you feel better.

I am very impressed with the color coordination and correct spelling. He really did well.
To the matter at hand, any parent that puts that on a child should be charged with child abuse. Subjecting one's child of that age to the vitriolic attitudes, on either side of an election is despicable. That kind of shit really need to just stop.

An early start is essential to the process of weeding out the free thinkers......

The Truth, maybe if you shared your knowledge and prove this as TRUTH as you post, then this election could be over in a matter of days and then Boss Hogg and Daisy Duke could take over running this country.............

Political messages don't belong in school. On that grounds they had every right to make him change his shirt and possibly discipline him.
Even though his shirt was correct, school is NOT a place of/for free speech. Its a place to learn, not preach. They should leave that shit for BWOT.
