While many countries have been fighting since ages for the basic right of freedom of speech, there are still some people who haven't accepted that it is given. These are the people who treat other people on the basis of their own perceived beliefs and whims. And, wait, does the world need more of such people. Absolutely NO!
In one such disturbing incident, an 8-year-old was expelled from school after he expressed his dislike for the US President Barack Obama. Now, is there some limit on foolishness after crossing which a person can safely be considered crazy? Please, the world needs that!
He was asked to "never come back" when the teacher teaching "history" didn't like his opinion on the present US President. The boy raised his hand and said, "I don't like Obama", which the teacher couldn't digest (Maybe, because his teacher was about to be benefitted from the legalization of Marijuana by the president).
And, there he was warned that he would be expelled for making racist remarks. His parents Sarah and Brad Wheeler are avid Republicans and said, "We've always raised Jacob and his brothers to love America, freedom and the right to bear arms. Those liberties do not go so well in hand with Obama's policies, so we've made sure he knows what kind of man is running our country. We're happy Jacob stood up for what he believed in class, but the fact that he was expelled for being a red-blooded American sickens me."
"I got a mind to move out of this God-forsaken state and put him in a school that shares our American values, but first, we're suing the school", said his parents.
"Jacob disrupted the lesson in a very disrespectful way and spoke ill of our great, revolutionary and tolerant president. We will not allow such ignorance and racism at our establishment, and we don't regret excluding him one bit. There is a time and place for freedom of speech, but insulting our great African American president won't be tolerated."
And the hue and cry over some little kid not liking him has nothing to do with racism, he knows.
For all the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fans, of course!
