    California student group bans American flag from lobby





    Some group of bastards in California want to ban the American flag from being on display at the University of California because, among the 25 reasons they listed, "has been flown in times of "colonialism and imperialism" and could symbolize American "exceptionalism and superiority." The resolution says "freedom of speech, in a space that aims to be as inclusive as possible, can be interpreted as hate speech."

    But... America is exceptional and superior. People aren't flocking to Mexico or Canada are they? Case closed.

    California hasn't changed much over the decades. In the 60's a WWII Gato class submarine was being retired as a museum exhibit, San Francisco harbor I believe. Students and various anti-American groups protested saying a weapon of war should not be on display.

    Would love to know how many of those students trying to ban our flag have government student loans. Whiney, complaining hypocrites.

    Now I remember an event when I was in High School.

    Some of the students decided that at the change of class they would take the flag the down off the flag pole.

    A bunch of us guys stood around the flag pole with the full intent that flag would stay flying. The teachers knew about the planned assault on our flag and watched the anti US students gather. Once we gathered to defend the flag then the teachers sent everyone to class.
