Bush imposes dress code at Richland Center High School
By Dustin Beilke
There has been no mention of this in the mainstream Wisconsin media, of course, but via the DailyKos blog site a disgruntled Richland Center High School student’s parent reports that students were threatened with expulsion if they wore pro-Kerry buttons or clothing or otherwise voiced dissent during today’s Bush campaign appearance at the high school.
The Bush campaign’s unprecedented loyalty oaths and violent overreaction to protesters on the campaign trail have become legendary despite getting very little attention from the reporters who cover the campaign. Still, threatening high school kids with expulsion might be a new low even for them. Either way, this is not much of a democracy lesson for the kids in Richland Center.
