Meanwhile, a Muslim boy with a radical activist father and a history of discipline issues can bring a fake bomb to school on 9-11 and is an instant hero with the Left…You just can’t make this up.

A 13-year-old Oregon boy was disciplined by his school for wearing the “battlefield cross” on his shirt.

Alan Holmes, a student at Dexter McCarty Middle School, wore a shirt that displays the image of a rifle propped up with a helmet perched on top and boots below. It’s commonly referred to as a “battlefield cross for fallen soldiers” and is meant as a a sign of support for the troops. The shirt read “Standing for those who stood for us.”

The Military Times is reporting the Gresham-Barlow School District has a dress code policy that prohibits weapons. District spokeswoman Athena Vadnals wrote “Weapons on a shirt are not appropriate in a school setting.”

“It’s not standing for violence, I tell you that much,” Holmes said. “It’s standing for the memorial for the soldiers, who have died for us and our freedom, and I 100 percent support them because they’re supporting us.”

Holmes said he was told by the vice principal to put on a different shirt or take an in-school suspension. He decided to keep the shirt on and call his mom.

The story has gone viral and the family is fighting back against the school and the district. Via: DownTrend
