In the wake of the controversy surrounding the Confederate flag, a school district in Tennessee has banned all flags and banners, including the American flag.
“While this was not necessarily an attack on the American flag, there were some other issues we’re trying to address,” Dickson County Director of Student Services Steve Sorrells said. “It’s not an unpatriotic act, by any means, because we have a number of ways in which students do learn how to be patriotic and express American pride.”
Some students are angry at the flag ban, as they feel their patriotism and freedom of speech are being compromised.
“I just think that’s a right. It’s freedom of expression, and I don’t think you should be able to take that away from us,” high school senior Arianna Heisler said.
I am pissed the hell off! The pledge of allegiance, the American Flag who the hell do these people think they are? Do we want our children to believe it is acceptable to ban the very flag of the United States of America? This is the crap that is being pushed in our schools and likely the reason schools in the United States are suffering with low scores. More effort is being put into these idiotic liberal attacks than is being taken to teach our children. I don’t mind disagreeing with these idiots because yes this is an unpatriotic act and I for one believe this school should be dealt with. The people behind this banning should be sent packing, we have no need for these people forcing their warped beliefs on our children. Our flag is a symbol of freedom that so many Americans have given their lives for.As for the other issues the school says they are trying to address, how about explaining why your school should receive any more state or Federal funding? Here is an update the school district has doubled down and now states that any student that brings a flag to school will be kicked out.
This nation that I love has fallen under attack by a bunch of liberals and political hacks they can’t stand the constitution or the US of A If they think this country’s so bad they They should move to Iran.
