Only the communists within, in California, would be capable of something like this:
Ponder the sheer cowardice, fecklessness and kowtowing to the worst elements of mob rule that "school officials" at Denair Middle School represent:
(Fox 40) 13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He's had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down.
A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property.
"In this country we're supposed to be free," said Cody. "And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And they're telling me I can't."
Cody's grandfather says the school was concerned about racial tensions or uprisings because of the flag. He feels if there was really a problem it should have been brought up two months ago, not during Veterans week. ...
Listen to this lame, ridiculous, explanation from Denair Middle School Superintendent Edward Parraz (who should be fired immediately) citing Orwellian mob rule, "racial tensions" and "fear for Cody's safety" as the reasons for demanding that Cody Alicea remove the American flag from his bicycle.
Following Superintendent Edward Parraz twisted-pretzel logic, are we then to assume that Cody Alicea's rights were violated "for his own good," because a bunch of racist rabble-rousers were racially rabble-rousing?
Why do I assume that this explanation wouldn't stand a chance if Cody Alicea had been displaying anything but the American flag, ie. anything far left, enviro-alarmist, communist or Mexican hate/La Raza/La Mecha separatist?
Exit question - what in God's name is it about the American flag that flames racial tensions in the People's Republic of California (I know the answer but want to know what you think)?
Queue the crickets as we wait for the ACLU (American Communists Liberal Union) to come to Cody Alicea's defense for clearly having his 1st Amendment rights violated.
