Shut up and/or you're out of here!posted by The Sailor @ 6:25 PM Permalink If you've been paying attention you know that the Freedom of Speech (along with all the other Bill of Rights) has been suspended under Bush. Who knew that being silent was also a threat to the regime!?
Students suspended after supporting 'Day of Silence'Uhhh, 'scuse me, the freakin' morons shouting were the disruption!
The national "Day of Silence," designed to highlight the bullying and harassing of students who identify themselves as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered, resulted in the suspension of two Gulf Middle School students.
One of the pupils at the Cape Coral school was suspended after other students began yelling about a sticker she was wearing explaining the pledge of silence. The other suspended pupil had distributed some papers describing the Day of Silence, sponsored by the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
"These students violated school district policy," Lee County School District spokesman Joe Donzelli said. "You can't just hand stuff out without approval from administration. You can't wear something that could become a disruption to the education process."
Hmm, I wonder why they they got the idea ... maybe here.
