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.
