A Georgia family is under fire… for using their First Amendment rights.
Parents of 7th grader Jaxon Dekalb have been all-but officially labeled bad parents for allowing their son to wear a T-shirt that mocked the liberal news network CNN.
Nancy and Stan Jester, Jaxon’s parents, are both elected officials. Nancy is a county commissioner and Stan is a member of the local school board.
When their son asked to wear a T-shirt mocking the CNN logo as “FNN” with the caption — for Fake News Network” — on a field trip to CNN’s Atlanta headquarters, they did not say no.
But before the start of the field trip, a teacher forced Jaxon to remove his shirt.
The school has since apologized to the Jester family, but Nancy and Stan want the school to apologize to their son.
“His mother cautioned him that he might cause a controversy and needed to be prepared for that. He was fully aware of the implications of his decision and made the affirmative choice to wear his shirt,” Stan Jester wrote in a blog post.
But, oh wait… the school is only against certain students’ right to free speech.
“Some students are celebrated when they make a controversial display during the National Anthem. My student was forced to remove his shirt because someone didn’t like it. I defend speech and expression, even if I disagree, or it makes me uncomfortable,” Stan Jester added.
Sounds like hypocrisy, right!?
It seems as though the school has a target on all conservatives backs.
