It seems that someone brought a Donald Trump banner and OK Commissioner Jim Haskins decided that he would sanitize all racism from the games.
OK Commissioner Jim Haskins is a moron with absolutely no common sense!
OK Commissioner Jim Haskins relayed the message to schools on Wednesday. In addition to that, the Athletic Director President and the Executive Board also decided that the fans are no longer allowed to chant “USA, USA,” with the only exception being after the National Anthem is played.
You read that correctly. They have banned students from chanting “USA” in any instance other than after the National Anthem is played. That isn’t something that we should be proud of. You can’t even express your happiness in this country any longer without someone getting offended or getting in trouble.
Haskins has also banned flags from being brought to the games. He brings up a rule in the OK Conference Handbook: “Any signs, flags, banners, chants, cheers, or promotional material that carry questionable implications or are degrading are prohibited at any OK Conference venue.”
OK Commissioner Jim Haskins is a moron (I know, I just repeated myself) and he is not alone!
This is not just a problem at this particular event. OK is rather conservative and I am sure they will take care of moron Jim Haskins.
Banning the flag and patriotism is infecting our schools like the plague. Schools across the nation have purposely dropped reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Students are being banned from even wearing flags on their shirts. God, patriotism, and all those American values that made us great are being tossed out everywhere…and the people remain silent.
I blame the people! Wake up America… or we wont need that flag anymore!
A photographer and Navy veteran is fighting back after a photo she posted to Facebook started an online backlash.
Vanessa Hicks said she had no idea her photo would be considered controversial. The photo, from a military family’s newborn photo shoot, showed a newborn infant wrapped in an American flag held by his father, who was in his military uniform.
Hicks, a Navy veteran herself and the wife of an active-duty Navy member, said her intention was to honor the flag as well as her clients, who wanted to incorporate their military service in the photo shoot.

So, a baby in an American Flag is considered controversial, offensive. Why? What I find offensive is this the following. 1 Dragon
Students at the University of California, Irvine have voted to make their school a more “culturally inclusive” place by banning the American flag.
The Associated Students of University of California (ASUCI) passed a resolution March 3 that would remove the Stars & Stripes along with every other flag from the lobby of a complex housing the offices of the student government.
“Designing a culturally inclusive space aims to remove barriers that create undue effort and separation by planning and designing spaces that enable everyone to participate equally and confidentially,” read the resolution authored by Matthew Guevara.
The resolution passed 6-4. Two people abstained. Let me break down the vote for you — six unAmerican students, four patriots and two individuals who could have a career in House Republican leadership.
Guevara’s resolution, which was in dire need of an edit, rambled on about “paradigms of conformity” and “homogenized standards” and blah, blah, blah.
It sounds like Mr. Guevara could have a future career in community organizing or the Democratic party.
“The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” he bemoaned. “Flags not only serve as symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism, but also construct cultural mythologies and narratives that in turn charge nationalistic sentiments.”
I know, folks. I know it’s California. But this is beyond bizarre even for the yoga and granola crowd.

Socialism is Not the Answer
I guess Rush said it best, “winners don’t compromise, losers do.” Well, I voted, and what I remember is the Republicans knocking the socks off of the Democrats and don’t remember being transported to another planet since then. Now, all of a sudden, the Democrats want to work with the Republicans. Well, I would like to respond to that.
Notice to all Democratic Politicians, the ones who called us domestic terrorist for believing and standing up for the American Flag and the U.S. Constitution, who called members of the Tea Party terrorist or tea baggers, who sent the IRS knocking at our doors, who called us racist for the past 6 years because we didn’t agree the Community Organizer in Chief, the Narcissist in Chief.
You know who you are. You are the same ones who refused to listen to The People when we said we didn’t want obamacare. Remember Nancy?
and lets not forget about this one…..
I remember, oh man do I remember and I will make it very simple for you to understand………
We the People are not your lap dogs, we are not your door mats for you to walk on. We are the ones that keep this Country moving, day and night and we are the ones who pay your salary…………….REMEMBER? You work for US, not the other way around.
WE VOTED and Socialism is not the Answer, in fact SOCIALISM SUCKS. We are America, we have a Constitution and a Bill of Rights, it has worked for over 200 years, it doesn’t need to be changed and if you don’t like it, I’ll help you pack.
GOD BLESS AMERICA and GOD SAVE THE REPUBLIC.
I am 1 Dragon and this is my opinion.
A San Diego State University sophomore was forced to remove an American flag from his balcony after apartment managers said foreigners could find the display offensive.
Brad Smith, who had just moved into the Boulevard 63 apartment complex in San Diego last month, told ABC 10 News that he received a written notice to remove the flag a few days ago.
“We were then told that it was for political reasons and that the flag could offend foreign people that live here, foreign exchange students,” Smith said. “I’ve had friends and family fight to defend that flag.”
While Smith’s lease agreement with the apartment’s management does have a clause that says “no signs or other personal property may be kept outside the premises,” attorney Christian Curry told ABC. that the clause comes close to infringing on First Amendment rights.
“Clearly, they want to keep it clean and that’s something they want to accomplish,” Curry said. “It’s a compelling reason, but it’s hardly a reason that’s going to overcome your free speech.”
Management initially told ABC that anyone who hangs a flag would be asked to take it down; however, it looks like the management capitulated after the media highlighted the story. An associate of the owners of the apartment complex told ABC there was a “misunderstanding,” and that the flag would be allowed to fly.
How incredible dense do you have to be to think this was a good idea?
Woodruff, S.C. – 7 On Your Side was contacted by several upset parents who say Woodruff High School students were made to take down American flags from their vehicles on September 11.
Spartanburg District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said four students arrived at the school Thursday morning with U.S. flags propped up on poles in their pickup truck beds.
The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, confiscated the flags because he said it is against district policy to “draw attention” to one’s vehicle.
The flags were returned to the students at the end of the day.
According to liberal thought, all who hail from the greatest nation on earth should hang their head in shame for all of the “evil” perpetrated by America and as a result should apologize profusely to anyone from a foreign country, just like our wonderful Commander-in-Chief who made his “apology tour” early on in his term.
Unfortunately for progressives, that’s not how it works here, regardless of how many attempts they make at forcing people to take down their flags, which is something that seems to be common place as of late.
Take for example an Islamic landlord in Texas who tried to force her tenant to take down his flag, saying it was a “threat to Muslims.”
According to Mad World News, a similar situation has popped up in Ohio, as 86-year-old Julia Lease received a note from her landlord asking her to take her flag down from her front porch.
“Please remove flag from your front porch. Thank you!”
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.”
