Talk about ridiculous

Tuesday:

High School Bans American Flag

Under a new school rule, students at Hobbton High School are not allowed to wear items with flags, from any country, including the United States.

The new rule stems from a controversy over students wearing shirts bearing flags of other countries…

The superintendent of schools in Sampson County calls the situation unfortunate, but says educators didn’t want to be forced to pick and choose which flags should be permissible.

Wednesday:

School Rescinds Ban On Flag Clothing

A North Carolina High School that came under national attention over their rule that prohibited students from wearing items with the American flag, or any flag from other countries, has lifted the ban.

Educators didn’t want to be forced to pick and choose which flags should be permissible“?!? That’s stupid.

Thankfully, having their stupidity pointed out seems to have helped correct the situation.

Pick and choose. What morons.

  1. From reading the articles the only reason mentioned was the flags had something to do with gangs. Apparently gang members were wearing flags of various nations as their colors. They did not get more specific. I wonder why. So I went to wikipedia and found that Sampson County, NC is now 10% hispanic. Given NC was never spanish contested territory this seemed high. But then again NC is now one of the top states for illegal aliens. Maybe this is just more proof that our ‘melting pot’ is not only cracked, but that the stove has been turned off too. I am not terribly old. I cannot fathom the banning of the American flag in school. It would not even had been an issue. The only issue would have been whether the person was wearing the flag in accordance with flag rules to ensure proper respect was rendered. I guess if a significant percentage of illegals feel like Elvira Arellano, the US flag would be offensive.
