    Default Principal replaced after forcing student to remove Trump Jersey at Football Game!

    About time! I've grown tired over the years with folks having shirts removed, and socks, and hats and other dumb things. And then at the same time, allowed to leave the very same on - that might actually be an issue. So I guess the issue is half political and half patriotic?

    Principal replaced after making a student take off his Trump Jersey at a Patriotic-Themed Football Game

    A North Carolina high school principal was replaced after she asked a student to take off his Trump jersey at a patriotic-themed football game.

    Cindy Gordon, the former principal at Harnett Central High School, asked Matthew Collins, 18, to remove the jersey because it was political, according to WRAL Friday. The front of the jersey read “USA” in red, white and blue and the back of the shirt had the word “Trump” with the number “45” written below.



    Gordon informed Collins that some parents were complaining about the shirt and he had to take it off in order to stay at the game, according to the son’s father Michael Collins, WRAL reported. Matthew Collins left the game that day.

    Students were encouraged to dress patriotically for the school’s football game on Oct. 5, according to ABC11 on Wednesday.

    “As long as the expression does not disrupt, and is not reasonably expected to disrupt, the educational mission of the school system, these rights include wearing clothing expressing political messages or supporting political candidates,” Harnett County school district spokeswoman Natalie Ferrell said, ABC11 reported.

    Michael Collins, who is a registered Democrat, said the shirt was not meant to promote President Donald Trump.

    “We’re not promoting Donald Trump,” Michael Collins said to ABC11. “He’s our president. Again you’ve got to respect your president.”

    Catherine Jones, who is the current principal at Harnett Primary, was named as Gordon’s replacement, according to a press release from Harnett County Schools Friday. Dunn Middle School Assistant Principal Calvetta Dunkins will serve as the interim principal at the primary school.

    “Again, we want to emphasize that Harnett County Schools supports and affirms students’ rights to express themselves — including wearing clothing expressing political messages or supporting political candidates or officeholders — in ways that are not expected to disrupt school or school events,” the statement said.

    It is not mentioned whether Gordon is still employed with the school district.

    “We’re very pleased that the school board and the county were quick to resolve the issue,” attorney Tony Buzzard, representing the Collins family, said to The News & Observer.

    Harnett County Schools did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

    I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat…You ask, what is our policy? I say it is to wage war by land, sea, and air. War with all our might and with all the strength God has given us, and to wage war against a monstrous tyranny never surpassed in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask, what is our aim? I can answer in one word. It is victory. Victory at all costs - Victory in spite of all terrors - Victory, however long and hard the road may be, for without victory there is no survival.
