The kids who called her “racist” are simply repeating what Mommy and Daddy spew at home.
VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. — She’s only 12 years old, but Ashleigh Jones is feeling the heat of this election year.
That’s because the seventh grader at New Smyrna Beach Middle School
was called a racist by classmates for wearing a T-shirt in support of VP candidate Sarah Palin, Orlando FOX affiliate WOFL reported.
Jones is volunteering at the Republican Headquarters in New Smyrna Beach. The Palin t-shirt was a gift from her fellow volunteers.
But when she wore it to school she learned just how tough politics can be.
“Some of the students were calling me racist because I was Caucasian,” she said. “I wanted the Caucasian man to win. And I told them that’s not true. It’s my freedom of speech, it’s my opinion.”
Jones’ parents said they’re not mad at the school; they just want everyone — including their daughter — to voice their opinions constructively, WOFL reported.
Wait a minite. Wasn’t Bubba Clinton was considered the ‘first black president’?
What the poor girl doesn’t understand is that having the right credentials for a politically correct candidate doesn’t necessarily involve being black, but it helps.
