I had to re-read this article several times before this hit home. Hold on to your butts cause this is happening in OUR country...
U.S. Flag Banned Amid Racial Tensions
LONGMONT, Colo. (April 1) - Dozens of high school students protested a temporary school policy forbidding students from displaying the U.S. flag - as well as flags from other countries - amid racial tensions following immigration rallies.
Skyline High School Principal Tom Stumpf said American flags were brazenly waved in the faces of Hispanic students and in one case a Mexican flag was thrown into the face of another student.
"When it involves the American flag and its abuse in vilifying other people, we simply will not tolerate it," Stumpf said. "They were using the symbol derisively as misguided patriotism."
So the AMERICAN FLAG is banned from display because some Hispanic students were offended? Who gives a CRAP! If they are legal citizens, it is their flag also. If they are not legal, then they have no business attending a public school. If students were injured by American Flags being stuck in their faces, punish the student - not the country.
This hysteria over immigration is completely out of control. I am sick and tired of hearing all the politically correct talk. I have a problem with the Mexican Flag being displayed on public property. This is AMERICA dammit! If you have a problem with the American Flag being displayed then you are not worthy of the freedoms the flag brings.
Mr. Stumpf - get Stumpfed! SHAME ON YOU for not having the cajones to side with your own damned country!!!!
