Good Hat vs. Bad Hat

Newspeak, From Obama's AP:

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Christan Morales says her son just wanted to honor American troops when he made a hat decorated with an American flag and small plastic Army figures.

But the hat ran afoul of the district's no-weapons policy because the toy soldiers were carrying tiny weapons.

"His teacher called and said it wasn't appropriate because it had guns," Morales said.

Since we're living somewhere between the book covers of Animal Farm, may we suggest a more appropriate hat - evil guns not included.

[Public] Teacher Approved - with bright red star and shiny hammer and sickle!

U/T: Conservative Cowgirl

UPDATE Found a pic of the offending hat at IOwnTheWorld.

Was it really the toy soldiers and guns that led to the hat ban? Or, was it that eyesore of a patch on the front that pissed off the government school officials?

At least someone is trying to do something that makes up for the school's treatment of the kid:

So, the kid was told he could still use the military theme but only if the soldiers were not armed! In other words, make them into unarmed, inoffensive little U.N. peacekeepers?
