Considering the utter filth polluting today’s television airwaves, many conservatives are overjoyed with the unparalleled success of A&E’s hit series, “Duck Dynasty.” The show follows an rural, yet highly entrepreneurial family who espouse an unabashedly Christian worldview.
A Virginia high school student, apparently a fan of the wholesome entertainment, showed off his affinity by wearing a shirt inspired by one of its main cast members.
Alongside a likeness of Si Robertson, the garment bore the quote, “I will hurt you physically and metaphysically.”
Dinwiddie High School administrators told Hunter Spain to wear his shirt inside out or leave campus and return with a change of clothes. He chose the latter, explaining he didn’t want to “look stupid in front of all these young ladies in the school.”
While the school found his shirt to be “threatening,” Hunter’s mother said she “counldn’t understand it.”
Though he ultimately supporte the school’s decision, superintendent David Clark did express some deference to Hunter’s predicament.
“If you are a ‘Duck Dynasty’ fan you understand the meaning of the shirt,” he said.
Public schools should have policies in place to protect students, however it seems most of the outrage shown toward dress is aimed at students expressing some conservative value. A shirt bearing the visage of a 65-year-old duck call manufacturer is far from the most intimidating factor most modern students experience.
Leftist educators routinely cram their own ideology down the throats of captive young people as students are exposed to explicit and often vulgar sexual themes at an incredibly young age.
In the eyes of millions of patriotic Americans, the next generation would benefit far more from the Robertson family’s influence than the National Education Association.
