Rebellion In West Virginia

During the 1960's colleges and universities witnessed lots of "sit-ins", wearing "provocative" clothing, protests about "free expression", etc, etc, etc. Many of those same people are now in academia and other positions of power in our educational system, yet they have no problem prohibiting "free expression" when it goes against the ideology of their worldview.  They have become the establishment. How ironic. But we seem to have a growing rebellion in West Virginia. I suspect the Scots-Irish blood is to blame . . .
A West Virginia teen who was arrested and suspended for wearing a National Rifle Association T-shirt to school returned to class Monday wearing the same shirt that got him into trouble.
Jared Marcum, 14, was joined by about 100 other students across Logan County who wore shirts with a similar gun rights theme in a show of support for free speech.

Will academia stand in solidarity? I kinda doubt it. If it had just been a Che Guevara t-shirt , then all would have been just peachy. Amazing. We shall overcome y'all. Story here.
