As Kathleen Fox with The Paducah Sun reported, an art teacher at a Kentucky High School set up an exhibit where students were supposed to stand on an American flag while they wrote how they felt about it. Art teacher Shand Stamper at McCracken High School in Paducah set a music stand with paper to write on on top of the flag so that students could contemplate their feelings and then note them.
The exhibit was a re-creation of “Dread” Scott Tyler’s 1989 “artwork” titled “The Proper Way to Display an American Flag.”
They also lit up some pot using the burning American flag:

We are not far from the end folks. We can’t take much more political correctness. This picture was taken at the AZ state capitol. This photo was taken at a rally at the state capitol yesterday.
The news will not show it and the Capitol Police and Homeland Security would not let Americans or any of the Veterans that were there do anything about it. Friends were threatened to be arrested and were told they would be booked under federal charges if they did anything.
Welcome to America, where wearing patriotic clothing can get you sent home from school.
Seriously. Remember the case of the California boys who wore American flag apparel on Cinco de Mayo? They were sent home from school for disrespecting Hispanic children on “their day.”
Sounds like a violation of their First Amendment rights, doesn’t it?
Apparently not, according to a federal judge.
U. S. District Court Judge James Ware was ruling in a case involving students at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA, who were banned from wearing American flag t-shirts on the Mexican holiday in 2010.
The judge determined that the Morgan Hill Unified School District did not violate the First Amendment and said that concerns by school officials over possible violence justified censoring the pro-American message.
“The school officials reasonable forecast that Plaintiff’s clothing could cause a substantial disruption with school activities, and therefore did not violate the standard set forth – by requiring that Plaintiff’s change,” the judge wrote.
It’s a sad day in this country when politically correct censorship trumps patriotism.
I have seen many distasteful pictures from the Occupy Wall Street movement, but none tops this young man defecating on the American Flag. Thousands have died for what this flag represents, yet we have raised a generation of ungrateful idiots that don’t even understand what they have.
I am reminded of the wise words of Ronald Reagan, who said:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.
Tyranny may be closer than we think. And to think Obama admires these people.
Socialism is not the Answer
According to the media……………….. you’ve heard these words before, but according to the media, Mitt Romney is the guy to beat Obama. Why, because they say so? This is the same media that said we were all racist if we didn’t agree with Obama. That OWS was just like the Tea Party. That Obama was god-like and would unite this country. The same media that says Obama is a Natural Born Citizen well Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was a Kenyan national and a British subject, as was Obama,
The same media that use the term “birthers or tea-baggers” when they refere to Patriots that respect and honor the U.S Constitution but call OWS people that walk all over the American Flag, use the F-word to describe our military, and assault people, real Americans.
Is Mitt my first choice? No. At this point in time, it’s still an open field although it is narrowing. As for the media, well everyone has an opinion and you know what they say about opinions.
An elementary school in Colorado has come under criticism after they lowered the American flag and elevated a Saudi Arabian flag.
The principal at Bauder Elementary School in Fort Collins said they did not mean to disrespect the American flag, according to a report in the Greeley Gazzette.
