School Forces Boy To Take Flag Off Bike

http://www.kcra.com/news/25754519/detail.html

DENAIR, Calif. -- A Stanislaus County school is forcing a student to take an American flag off of his bike.

Thirteen-year-old Cody Alicea put the flag there as a show of support for the veterans in his family.

But officials at Denair Middle School told him he couldn't fly it. He said he was told some students had complained.

Another in a long list of reasons my daughter goes to a private school. At our Grandparents Day we actually said the Pledge of Allegiance and all of us veterans were asked to stand up for applause.

This country is going to hell and the PS system is leading the way.

Instead of doing what's right, he "removes" the source of the irritation. Dunno how quickly he removes Mexican flags.

I bet he would fight for the right of a child to have the Mexican flag displayed.

Pathetic. Not permitting the display of the American flag on American soil, should be considered treason.

Sounds to me as if the Superintendent has no understanding of first amendment responsibilities and privileges himself...

I wonder how many kids displaying Mexican flags have been told to put them up?

These days...

The Stars and Stripes must be removed from a kid's bike so his right can be used "Responsibly"....

But protesting military funerals is protected by the first amendment:

"Our Hispanic, you know, kids will, you know, bring their Mexican flags and they'll display it, and then of course the kids would do the American flag situation, and it does cause kind of a racial tension which we don't really want," Parraz said. "We want them to appreciate the cultures."

WTF. Really. Can't really understand this broken English, but I think he was trying to get at that if they were allowing him to bring his American flag then if the Mexican flag was brought it would create some tension for the same reason. Sounds to me like he is thinking if we can't bring the Mexican flag then you cant bring the American flag.

My problem is "THIS IS AMERICA". The only flag that should be brought is the AMERICAN FLAG. PERIOD.

this is nothing new, shit like this has been going on since the earliest days of our nation. the american flag has less "rights" in this country then any other flag, and this goes back to the anti-federalists who saw the states as have more authority then the central federal government. even during the civil war soldiers on both sides marched into battle under their states flag. so early on it got screwed, and then faired no better with immigrant groups started flying their flags all the way to this day.

This is proof that political correctness is just a way to ensure anti-American sentiment is treated with more reverence than patriotism.

They may as well sew a gold hammer and sickle on the American flag if this shit is going to become the norm.

not only that, they have no right to tell the kid what flag he can fly. he can just keep on flying it and legally there isn't anything he can do about it. yeah i'd probly beat that guy mercilessly just for fun and tell him that's what he gets when he messes with the american flag, and to expect more if he does it again. i get all pissed about my flag.

Thank ya on this one, I was about to post basically the same thing you did. I'd also like to add that the only flag that should be protected against this behavior is the American flag.

WTF, especially on patriotic days that are above and beyond the normal (Veterans Day, Memorial Day...etc). It's completely insane.

All that would happen is you would go to jail for being a racist. Not saying that's right or wrong, but you would be the one in the wrong - there would be illegals protesting and in return killing white people. However, when they did it - it would be okay.

this is really sad. anyone who complains of someone flying a us flag should be loaded up in a wagon and shipped off to where they came from.

except that i would do it in a way that he had no idea who i was, or who the tatoo artist was.

they are all so damn lucky i'm not in charge around there. i'd try to have the complainers deported or their citizenship status revoked and have them sent back to hell hole land where they clearly belong
