(Rush L) Military Mom on School T-Shirt Ban [son wore a USMC t-shirt to school]
RUSH: Here’s Sandra in Ellisville, Mississippi. Hey, Sandra, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush. Much to my shock this morning at 11:15, I’m just gonna make this short and sweet, I get a call from my sixth grader in elementary school saying that I had to bring him another shirt or go home. And I didn’t understand what the problem was. He was wearing his brother, who’s in the Marine Corps fighting in Afghanistan, a United States Marine Corps shirt that had the logo of the bulldog that said “If you’re not the lead dog,” on the front. On the back it says, “the view never changes,” and it’s the rest of the bulldog, and he was flagged to the office by the principal for being inappropriate and offensive.
RUSH: Wait just a second now. What kind of shirt?
CALLER: It’s a United States Marine Corps —
RUSH: No, was it T-shirt, a button-down shirt?
CALLER: No, it’s a T-shirt that my son got in boot camp.
RUSH: Okay, does the school not permit shirts?
CALLER: Oh, no, they allow T-shirts.
RUSH: They do allow T-shirts.
