    Hard to believe that this occured in Harnett County.

    Im not surprised.
    Things are so danged touchy these days.
    Everyone has to be handled with kid gloves, let's not get close to possibly rocking the boat or making someone uncomfortable...by wearing a shirt with a president's name on.

    Is Harnett Co one of those mythical 'blue dog democrat' counties that have helped turn NC the color of a sickening bruise politically? GK Buttersworth anyone?

    No I see it's supposedly represented state-level by some Rs. Yep. Same turd, different ends.

    From the article-

    "Collins says several school board members have reached out to him to say they will handle the situation and make things right."

    I'd really like to know what they mean and what will actually happen.

    Agreed.

    Folks have gotten to the point where they really believe they have the right to be free from hearing/seeing that with which they disagree.

    Harden the f* up....that's life.

    That's one of the many problems with society...1) folks so sensitive, they piss and moan when they see/hear something they find offensive and 2) those who enable that mindset, by coming down hard on those guilty of the egregious act of "offending" another soul, whether in word or deed.

    The boat needs to be rocked. Some people need the reality check that life carries with it the possibility of being exposed to sh*t you don't like.

    Most of the 8th grade boys came back from DC with MAGA hats. SMH

    Anybody else wonder if this was just the principle? Are adults with high school age kids really complaining? How many times has "some people" really been one person. The person in "charge."

    The principal was apparently given the heave ho. She's out.

    As well she should be!!! It seems okay for some people to express their political views but not for others unless it's in lockstep. I hope the person that "complained" is proud of getting her fired.... Sleep on that!!

    The father was interviewed on Fox and friends. He's a registered Democrat, but is still disappointed by the Principal's actions.

    I bet if one of the kids wanted to kneel for the National Anthem she would have been proud.

    The principle would have awarded the boy if it instead supported Hussein OhBummer during his reign.

    My daughter is.a Senior there. Vice Princepal told Gordon she shouldn't have done that. She did it because of someone else complaining. Most are saying she didn't make the remarks about the Obama shirt being ok.
    I think she should have been reprimanded but not fired.

    I like people in positions of power being fired when they violate the bill of rights. That keeps the fear where it should be

    Lol,, your right but in Harnett Co like everywhere else the conservative vote only comes out during big elections. The Dema know this and that why they push thier voters on the small stuff. It's worked also,, most schools boards are ran by Libs

    I keep wondering when the old school Democrats will wake the heck up. They need to realize that the word Democrat doesn't mean moderate leaning party of the workers any longer.

    You might enjoy listening to the NPR programs about how far right Republicans have gone while trying to tapdance around the fact that the Democrats have gone so far left. There is a slight entertainment value to the mental gymnastics it takes to ignore your sides problems. Oh yeah, going hard left isn't the problem. Duh. SMH

    I've wondered the same thing. The national Dem party is way detached from the old base.

    My best friends dad is old school democrat in WV that is brainless to the fact that he's not a current democrat. He has turned into a brainless CNN watcher that believes they still are just a news agency. My buddy was a democrat until I explained what they stand for and he was blown away. He thought about it then called me about two months later and had had switched to republican.
