US School tells American boy to take down the American Flag

Supposedly there is this 13-year-old American school kid that was recently told by school officials to take down his flag off of his bike here in the US.

Now, Cody has been riding his bike to school for months with the flag attached to his bike, but only on Veterans day he was told to remove it. It appears that some fellow students have been making complaints about his American flag (WTF REALLY?) and therefore it was no longer allowed in school property.

Cody explains that he wants to honor not only his grandfather, Robert a US Army Veteran, but all veterans as explains that in this great country we should have the freedom to acknowledge it therefore he has the right wave his flag where ever he wants to.

Should Middle Schools totally strip away their students' Amendment rights, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE F&*(^ING PROMOTING THE US IN THE FIRST PLACE??? The kids were complaining about the flag...wow really? you live in the country, if it really gives you a problem then suck that SH*T up and US CITIZENS shouldn't have to remove US flags to accommodate to your emotions.

Nowadays, I see kids as caring less about their country and what it stands for. Then you have this one kid that actually gives a damn and shows his pride, yet his own American School thinks otherwise.

What does that say about how the school officials feel about their own country?
What kind of example does that set up for the students for that school?
Do we really want those people head of our children's education system?

Oh and here are their emails:
Aaron Delworth - Principal - adelworth@dusd.k12.ca.us
Elise Domico - Guidance Counselor - edomico@dusd.k12.ca.us
Kathy Wade - Principal's Secretary - kwade@dusd.k12.ca.us

  2. I think that ultimately, kids will find a way to do what's right if they really want to. Check out this link I'm saving for next week:

  4. So what they (the school is saying) The kid can't fly his US flag, BUT we can fly ours outside of the school and inside all classrooms?. You know that all US schools fly the flags..... I would have told them to Eff off!

  5. Wow this is crazy. And I thought it was insane when we stopped saying the pledge.

  6. That's bullshit. I bet they wouldn't have bothered if he was burning the flag. Awesome that our country has gotten to where its okay to burn the flag but its offensive to display it. Its the fall of Rome all over again.

  7. There's a new vid up there too, basically the superintendent got involved and said the kid could fly it....

  8. That's odd, perhaps school's managers are afraid that other kids do the same but with other flags. What happened with "Freedom of Expression"? =(

  9. Silly Billy! It's California, he should have been flying La Bandera de la Raza.

  10. School restricting a boy's freedom of speech? Especially when it's the USA flag? That shows you how messed up the education system is in America.

  11. That's kind of weird of the school, I don't get it

  12. Make the kids who complained all go live in Afghanistan for a week and see if they still feel the same way.

  13. How the HELL did some kid(s) find that offensive? Like you said, it's the flag of the country they are in. I am speechless. (Which is what the government wants!)

    On the plus side, at least the family is not freaking out right to a lawyer. They will comply for now, talk to school officials...good on them.

    I hope you follow up, comrade, because I would like to know how this pans out in the future, but I doubt I will remember. :(

  14. Wow, I'm not even from the US, but this is ridiculous... And I thought schools were supposed to raise its country's flag everywhere in the world.

    ReplyDelete
  15. wow man, you must be kidding me. please post a followup, if you can, on how this turns out. honestly, it's really hard to believe a school in the US would do that, especially since schools are federally funded.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Wow i can't believe they did that to the kid! He should have the right to express his pride for america!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Now THAT is some bullshit...honestly...good post man. Following for sure. :)

  24. I raise my own flag every night. with help of a lady firend it goes down in about an hour or 2 though

  25. Remember though that this is Fox news. This may not be the whole story. If it is not the school may have a ligitimate reason to ban a flag. However the way it is reported their is no reason for this ban. Then again school's are always stripping the rights of their students with no apparent problems so this is not all that shocking.

  26. People put too much thought and weight into a flag imo.

  34. The school is a publicly funded government institution. It IS the government so the flag outside is literally a mere representation of itself. An individual with a flag is slightly different.

    A citizen walking around with a flag might be offensive to other citizens who have been wronged by/or are critical of the government (African Americans in the South's disliking of the Confederate image on State flags for example). This act might also be offensive to people who have no qualms with their government but an adverse reaction to blind patriotism/nationalism in general.

  35. it sounds like this kid needs a lawyer :P

  36. Back when I was in school, I constantly refused bullshit like this. I would get in trouble, and then my parents would rain down hell upon the school for the next few months. Take this to the local news and papers, then sit back and watch the fireworks.

  54. here's the thing with government schools: they just want everyone to do what they say very orderly without complaint. y'know, making perfect little government subjects.

    ReplyDelete
