So the isrealite he-bros we're doing their hate thing. I'd forgotten they existed.
Then the MAGA-Chad's asked their chaperone if they could yell their school cheer, and the leader of their cheering took off his shirt to lead the cheer, because of course. WTF chaperone?
Then Big Chief Attention Whore wandered into the mix, fresh off of his tour of duty in the USMC Marching Band where he played lead tom-tom.
Lots of bad behavior on all fronts. Everyone seemed to feel entitled to douchebaggery.
You know, our eighth grade class at the middle school goes on a trip to DC every year. We are a Catholic school. Our school rules dictate that they wear the school uniform when required and adhere to the school dress code when the uniform isn't required. Some boys on one of the teams I coach were bragging about how they all showed up for the bus ride up with MAGA hats on, but the administration correctly took them away. They are middle school kids and, quite frankly as we all know about kids, don't make good decisions and although their intentions may not have been "evil", they weren't good. They were bragging to the head coach about wanting to "make snowflakes cry". Our administrators rightly realized that 13 year old boys in MAGA hats in our nation's capital was not a good idea for both our school image and their own well-being. No parents complained about this, the kids behaved themselves on the trip, and all was well. I could easily see these kids getting into a lot of trouble in MAGA hats because they tend to be jackasses and disrespectful in general, but in normal clothing just look like your average jackass 13-year-old.
I see a lot of people claiming these kids are just innocent lambs caught up in the liberal hatred also routinely post about how Colin Kapernick is anti-American and should be fired, lynched or worse.
So is free speech okay or not? And if you express yourself and there are consequences, are those consequences okay or not?
I do think the school dropped the ball here on their self-representation, but whatever. They learned their lesson.
If you want to be in charge of your own kids when they go out in public and express their free speech and be responsible for what happens, go ahead. But, when they are also representing a school or organization and acting in large groups, the stakes are a bit higher.
**from what I understand the black israelites hate everyone and are the westboro baptist church of minority ethnic groups.
***I don't know what "keeper of the sacred pipe" means, nor do I care. If you aren't going to introduce yourself and your intentions to someone, don't cry about it later.
****teenagers are assholes. Its what they do best. Even when they aren't trying.
Never eat more than you can lift.
