George Junior High School in Rosenberg, TX had a big problem. It seems one of their students had been parading a vile, disgusting shirt around campus. Emblazoned across this shirt was an image that conjured up visions of hatred and violence. Clearly the student wearing this shirt was a ticking time bomb. The school administration had to act in order to ensure the safety of all of the children in their care.
Just what was so offensive, vile, and, dare I say, dangerous as to warrant swift action by the school?
Was it a Confederate flag?
Given the fact that this story takes place in Texas, could it possibly have been an image of a KKK rally?
|Not even close.|
Perhaps the shirt bore the likeness of one of the most vile, disgusting, offensive creatures ever to be created?
|Mesa say yousa gettin warmer!|
So just what the hell was on this offensive shirt? Maybe you should take a look for yourself:

Yup, the violent, disgusting shirt was a Star Wars shirt depicting a stormtrooper with a blaster. News station KTRK has the scoop:
So let me get something straight here: this kid, Colton, wears a Star Wars shirt several times without any incident at all. He wears the shirt on Friday, and all of a sudden it's a huge issue. Where the hell was the school all the other times he wore it? Why didn't administrators ban the shirt the first time he wore it? No, we have to wait until right now before we decide to act on it. I don't even see what the problem is. It's a fucking stormtrooper for God's sake. They couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with the blaster barrel pressed up against it. What's this kid going to incite with this shirt, poor marksmanship?A 7th grader in Rosenberg says he was forced by school administrators to cover up his Star Wars t-shirt.
Joe Southern says his son, Colton, wore a shirt depicting the "Star Wars - The Force Awakens" logo, along with a Storm Trooper holding a weapon, to class Thursday at George Junior High School. He's apparently worn it to school several times before without any issue.
On Thursday, though, school officials told Colton the shirt was banned because it has a gun, or at least a picture of what in the movie is weapon.
Now to their credit George Junior High School didn't suspend Colton, although they made it very clear that they very well could have. All because zero-tolerance policies have removed any semblance of common sense from our education system.
Wait a second. Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out in one week. What other movie also comes out in one week?
My God, THAT'S why they banned the shirt. The principal is a closet Alvin and the Chipmunks fan!
