California school Reverses Course After Ordering Student to Remove American Flag From Bike

We read:
"A California school has done a U-turn after it forced a student to remove an American flag attached to his bike, saying the Stars and Stripes could spur racial tensions on campus.

Cody Alicea,13, had been flying the flag on the back of his bicycle for almost two months to show support for veterans like his grandfather, Robert Alicea.

But just in time for Veterans Day, school officials at Denair Middle School told Cody he would no longer be allowed to display the flag, citing complaints from other students. Now, after a public outcry, the school has decided that the grand old flag can come back.

Superintendent Edward Parraz says the school was trying to avoid racial tensions that stemmed from a "little issue" that arose when Hispanic students brought Mexican flags to school on Cinco De Mayo.

Parraz says the school got flooded with so many complaints from upset parents both inside and outside of Denair that he was called into to "handle the situation."

Parraz says the school decided on Friday to allow Cody to display his flag again, and now it will be shifting its focus to the students who complained.

How "patriotic" of this Mexifornia communist indoctrination camp to allow our nations flag to fly. In fact, this public school, as a govt entity receiving govt funds, is "required" to fly the nations colors. Then again, it's Mexifornia, not America.

WORD OF THE DAY
OBSCENITY, n.


When an American lad, attending an American middle school is forced to remove the stars and stripes from his bike, because the flag ‘offends’ the American lad’s Colonista classmates.

I think the principal and the other illegals should be put on a chubacabre and ran back to the cesspool of mexico. If Cody was flying a mexican flag or some flag of some bullshit camel jockey country it would have been ok.But what you expect of mexifornia or californiastan. REMEMBER THE ALAMO !!! BRING BACK THE CRUSADES !!!

The worst part isn't even the students but the school officials, where's the common sense? You're supposed to deal with racial tensions, not cater to them.

Dear Superintendent Edward Parraz,

This is AMERICA not MEXICO.

That is the AMERICAN flag you fucking idiot it is being flown in AMERICA.

Tell your "amigos" they can fly the MEXICAN flag in MEXICO. That's where it should be flown.

should be a law banning prohibitions on flying the country's flag in any and all countries...
Probably is that way in many countries...

In most countries, desecrating their national flag will get you shot. At least. We on the other hand, have become to "enlightened" to have any sense of national pride, which is why this country is turning into an international toilet bowl.

Another reason we are going down the drain is because we fail to understand that all liberals, and all those on the left, are the children of Satan, a cancer on society, and must be eradicated by any means.
