Teachers have been maligned, derided, put on a pedestal, ignored, followed, awarded, lionized, and sued by parents. Administrators choose their favorite teachers as educators of the year, star teachers, or outstanding faculty, lavishing praise and accolades on those they deem the best team players.

A teacher in Virginia has ordered a student to turn his shirt inside out because the message content was offensive. The t-shirt pictured Si Robertson, the jocular sage uncle of the Duck Dynasty clan, a tight-knit family with traditional American values, who believe in God, country, and hunting.

Real Americans defend freedom around the world and do not apologize for their kindness, generosity of time, treasure, sweat, and blood. Real Americans love their country and wish to protect and preserve the land and waters they have inherited from Americans before us so that our children and grandchildren can enjoy it free of any interference from government, foreign powers, or United Nations.
