Many Republicans can’t help but wonder if a student wearing a pro-Obama T-Shirt in a Philadelphia school would have been subject to the kind of humiliation that Samantha Pawlucy was forced to endure.
The 16-year old sophomore, who attends Charles Carroll High School, told Larry Kudlow, that she was humiliated by a teacher for wearing a T-shirt in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
She said the teacher compared her to the worst racists in history – the Ku Klux Klan.
Events unfolded last Friday. Nothing out of the ordinary happened until the student arrived at her geometry class – before that time the shirt didn’t raise any objections.
However, the offending teacher saw the Romney / Ryan shirt "and told me to get out of the classroom, I said no," Samantha explained on The Kudlow Report.
When she stood her ground and refused to change, Samantha said the teacher pulled her into the hall and encouraged others to make fun of her. And according to news reports, the teacher attempted to scribble on the shirt.
“She did it because she’s against Mitt Romney,” insisted the Samantha.
Samantha also admitted to Larry Kudlow that she was so embarrassed by what happened she hasn’t returned to class. “I don’t want to be threatened and I want the teacher to be fired.”
Samantha’s father Richard Pawlucy is beside himself. He told Larry Kudlow that he wouldn’t tolerate his daughter being bullied by anybody let alone a teacher.
Although they’ve met with school officials about the incident, neither Samantha nor her father are satisfied. “The teacher told us it was a joke. That she jokes around with students. There’s nothing funny about what she did.”
The school district confirmed to CNBC that an incident occurred and it is conducting an investigation to determine whether disciplinary action is necessary.
