After being suspended for wearing a pro-Trump t-shirt to class, a high school student in Oregon is now suing the school, principal, and the school district.
Addison Barnes is a senior at the ironically named Liberty High School in Hillsboro, Oregon. He decided to wear a shirt reading "BORDER WALL CONSTRUCTION CO." and "THE WALL JUST GOT 10 FEET TALLER" to a class involving people and politics. Apparently the teacher of the class had put up a poster advocating for open borders, and Barnes felt the need to advocate for the opposite position. For his trouble, the teenager was yanked out class by principal Amanda Ryan-Fear and told to either change his shirt or face suspension. Barnes chose the latter.
Addison Barnes has now filed a lawsuit in federal court, and is being represented by Oregon House minority leader Mike McLane in the case, claiming a violation of his 1st Amendment rights and suppression of free speech.
Of course the communist teacher who put up the open borders sign faced no repercussions.
