The MarineCorpsTimes.com posted a story about a sixth grader in trouble at school for wearing a shirt his marine brother gave to him. His brother is "Lance Cpl. Timothy Swann Jr., a member of 2nd Battalion, 9th Marines out of Camp Lejeune, N.C. Swann gave it to his little brother while he was on leave before deploying." (USA Today).
The school is South Jones Elementary in Mississippi.
They did not object to the shirt being a USMC shirt. On the contrary, they objected to the realistic portrayal of the dog’s anatomy on the back of his shirt.
The school’s superintendant made it clear that he is "very pro-military".
This story was immediately brought to the attention of Rush Limbaugh by the boy’s mother.
“Now your kid can’t wear a T-shirt given to him by a member of the U.S. military that espouses a positive character trait, leadership?” Limbaugh asked on his show. “… People are fed up. They’re fed up with being told what they can’t eat, and what they can and can’t do in their own yards and in their own homes. It’s just not America anymore.” – Rush Limbaugh
To which the school responded:
“It’s almost absurd that anyone would accuse us here in Mississippi of being anti-military,” he said. “We recite the Pledge of Allegiance every morning. This very school has sent cards and letters to our troops overseas.”
