McCain T-Shirt at School Garners Hostile Reactions

Catherine Vogt, a 14-year-old girl in Illinois got a lesson in tolerance from the oh-so-tolerant Left when she wore a McCain t-shirt to school recently. (see video below)

She conducted an experiment by wearing on one occasion an Obama t-shirt and on another a McCain t-shirt and recorded the responses.

While most people at her school liked the Obama shirt, both peers and teachers had strongly adverse reactions to the McCain shirt.

Among the comments she received about the McCain shirt were that she should be "burned with her shirt on" for "being a filthy-rich Republican," and that she should be crucified (only the product of public education who told her this mangled the word and said she "should be crucifixed").

It sounds like most of these mush-minded young people and the mush-minded liberals teaching them reacted like good little sheep and followed what the "mainstream" media and the rest of pop-culture told them they should think about a conservative or semi-conservative candidate.

Anyone who thinks our public school system isn't a breeding ground for liberalism really needs to watch this video and think about how the values you're trying to instill in your children may be undermined when you send them to school.

This is just one more incident where the cries for "tolerance" from the Left have become an indictment of hypocrisy. If anything good can come of all the juvenile behavior coming out of liberals in recent weeks, it would be good if this could move us beyond all the crying and whining about "intolerance" we get from the Left, allowing us to move on to substantive debate on the issues.

But I'm not holding my breath.

Listen to the mostly-white crowd at McCain's concession speech when they heard the name "Obama," and then listen to the diverse crowd at the President-Elect's victory speech at the mention of "McCain."

Are you telling me that all them blue-collar God-fearin' rednecks at McCain's speech wouldn't leap at the chance to get their gun-totin' hands on our new President and give that dirty A-rab a lesson he won't forget? Please.

That's not what I'm telling you.

But if you think that they would, then that's what I'd tell you.

You might be race-obsessed, but most Americans aren't.
