Oregon Middle School Suspends Boy for Wearing T-Shirt Featuring BATTLEFIELD CROSS

By Jim Hoft for The Gateway Pundit

An Oregon middle school suspended a boy recently for wearing a T-shirt with a battlefield cross.

Some media reports are simply calling this a t-shirt with a gun on it but that misses the point. The only reason the gun is there is because the shirt is honoring fallen soldiers.

To his credit, the kid refused to change his shirt.

Oregon school suspends 8th-grader over battlefield cross T-shirt

An Oregon middle school cracked down last week on a student who showed up in a battlefield cross T-shirt that said, “Standing for those who stood for us.”

Eighth-grader Alan Holmes’ T-shirt imagery of a rifle, helmet and boots denoting loss may have symbolized patriotism to him, but not to administrators at Dexter McCarty Middle School in Gresham who demanded the boy change his shirt and then suspended him when he refused.

“I’m not changing into a Dexter shirt,” the 13-year-old told Fox 12. “They won’t let me wear a shirt that supports the people that keep us free, I’m not going to support them.”
