Above is the original audio of the October 3 phone call to Larry Mendte of Philadelphia talk radio station WWIQ-FM 106.9 by Richard Pawlucy, father of the 16-year-old Charles Carroll High School student who was singled out, castigated, and threatened for choosing to wear a Romney-Ryan T-shirt on "Dress Down Friday."
Allegedly, Pawlucy's daughter's teacher told her to take the shirt off because it was like wearing "a Ku Klux Klan sheet," also threatening to cross the names out, wielding a marker.
In the current atmosphere in which leftists are questioning whether the First Amendment right to free speech ought to include speech that drives intolerant idiots to vandalism at the least (e.g., Muslim bloggerette Mona Eltahawy, captured on video below) and murder at the most, this is another step in the wrong direction.
But it's not unusual for educators who are worshipful of Obama to overstep their bounds and bully youngsters who don't think he's good enough for America. Remember this teacher from 2008, and how she -- in front of a camera crew recording every word -- felt justified in telling the daughter of a soldier deployed in Iraq that electing John McCain would mean "your dad could stay in the military for another hundred years!"
Philadelphia newspapers have picked up this story, and so has POLITICO. That's a surprise. But don't look for it on the usual MSM suspects.
