Students Kicked out of Smithsonian for Hats

The March for Life in Washington, DC was a spectacular success and loads of fun to attend.  But not for a group of students who came from Greenville, South Carolina.  Afterward they visited the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum but staff there demanded they remove their pro-life stocking caps or be forced to leave, even though other visitors were wearing hats of all kinds.  Some staff were accused of mocking the students and shouting vulgar names at them.  The staff member who ultimately kicked them out is said to have rubbed his hands together in glee as they exited the building.  This is a blatant violation of the students’ freedom of speech and religion and the American Center for Law and Justice is representing them.  It seems to be a slam dunk case.
