Just over a year ago I pointed out (in a Friday Linkzookery) precursor that a Dutch school had prohibited Dutch flags out of fear that Moroccan students might cause trouble over them. Now it’s Denver.
(Hey, but at least our Congressmen are standing up for what’s right. As in “yeah…RIGHT!”. Jerks.)
I realize that safety of students is involved, so Murdoc is willing to give the school district a grace period. Let’s say, oh, five days to clear out every student likely to take offense at American flags AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. See, I’m not concerned that anyone would take offense. Not at all. I’m just concerned that someone would take so much offense that they would decide it was worth harming someone or something over it.
They appear to be getting their ducks in a row, and that’s good to see. It’s behavior that needs to be disciplined here, in the mentioned separate case of taunting, not the clothing. While obscene and other “questionable” clothing can (and often should) be controlled, I have trouble seeing how clothing with the US flag on it falls into that category.
After the grace period expires? Come down like a TON OF BRICKS on violators.
This is ridiculous.
