Suspended from high School for having an association with the USA Flag on 9-11


Recommended Posts

 

 

Two high school football players were suspended indefinitely after they carried flags onto the field honoring police officers and firefighters who lost their lives on 9/11.

On Friday, the two Little Miami High School players took to the field carrying a Thin Blue Line and a Thin Red Line flag.

Since no BLM flags nor ANTIFA flags nor SJW flags were allowed, then I am okay with the school's decision.

 

Remember now the players were not suspended, for the actual flags, as they were suspended because they knew ahead of time their form of protests were prohibited.

I agree. School is not a place where political confrontations are welcome.  This could lead to physical confrontations in which Covid could be spread, the administration could be sued, and funds dedicated to education would be lost to lawyers and defendents.

You do realize those kids were gearing up for 2 hours of physical confrontation?

I will never STFU. You are mentally challenged if you cannot reply better than that.

These kids did not carry the US flag: they carried a politically doctored flag. They were treated just as they would have been had they carried the Rebel flag or the Isis banner.

All the more reason not to queer the deal.

There is a bit of hypocrisy in this. Too damn many people using sports and entertainment as political platforms.  I watch to be entertained  and to forget just  for awhile how fucked things have become.

I agree.

Doing this by kneeling at a pro NFL game makes some sense. Running with altered flags at a HS game, far less so.

There is a LOT of conflict at Little Havana highschools over US politics.

I do not see where school administrators should allow confrontational  gestures like this.

If they were unaltered US flags, that might be acceptable, but really, playing football is not an act of patriotism.

 

HYPOCRITE!!

Which is a grave mistake under the current circumstances.

Texans can do and say whatever the Hell they like. Football is not a patriotic act, it is simply a way to get a serious concussion. Every year HS students DIE playing football.

I find your logic is sound on this one ... 

 

However; It seems to be against the rules to support law and order ... which doesn't seem to be the direction I would want my public education to be leaning towards!!!!

Too bad Trump couldn’t get suspended for hugging and dry humping the American flag in front of his cheering MAGA audience.

Hey SHITSTAIN, the SCHOOL is a GOVERNMENT ENTITY and GOVERNMENT SHALL NOT RESTRICT THE RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH!!!

Ever read that pesky little thing called THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION???

 

That part is in the FIRST AMENDMENT!!!


So their ACTIONS are UNCONSTITUTIONAL you fuckwad!!!


Oops. Bet that sucks for you and your fucking SOCIALISM, huh??

The "logic" is NOT ONLY FLAWED, but UNCONSTITUTIONAL!!!
 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

 

SCHOOLS are GOVERNMENT and to make rules that RESTRICT FREE SPEECH IS NOT JUST WRONG, BUT FUCKING WRONG!!!

I Have to disagree.  The students asked permission to carry the flags prior to game and the request was denied.  They carried the flags anyway and were suspended...and before anyone says they were American flags, they were NOT.  The US flag doesn't have a blue stripe.  They chose to do something they knew was not allowed.  Their choice...live with the consequences and shut the fuck up.

 

They also learned a lesson.  Next time, don't ask permission.  If they had simply carried the flags and, when asked, simply said they assumed it would be OK...there is a good chance nothing would have happened other than being told to ask next time.  The philosophy of "It's easier to get forgiveness than permission" doesn't work if you've already asked permission and been told no.
