By Sher Zieve – Longmont, Colorado’s Skyline High School has banned the display of the US flag on school property. Several students who brought the US flag to school on Friday, in protest to the school ban, were suspended.
Skyline High School Principal Tom Stumpf said that the US flag intimidated Mexican descent students who wanted to display the Mexican flag. Stumpf commented: “When it involves the American flag and its abuse in vilifying other people, we simply will not tolerate it. They were using the symbol derisively as misguided patriotism."

Dustin Carlson, one of the suspended students, said on Denver’s KCNC-TV: “I'm getting suspended for it [carrying the US flag] and personally I think that's uncalled for. If this country means freedom, then why can't we fly our own flag? It's ridiculous."

the real story, and not bucky's version, is here: (notice the posting at the very bottom. this is so that people like bucky don't copy and paste just what they want you to read. therefore, i posted a link to the story.

after reading the REAL story, the issue was that several students carried an american flag and were using it as a cover and thought this gave them the right to throw racial remarks at the mexican students. the school stated this is not what the american flag is all about, and therefore suspended the offending students.

what these students were doing would be liken to a neo-nazi group carrying american flags while protesting jews in america. does carrying the american flag give one the automatic right to be racist?

this is only a personal opinion and it's bullshit . if a student wants to carry an american flag stopping him or her is pure communist and a violation of his or freedom . you being an open minded liberal should see that.

In metro Phoenix, students at Apache Junction High School found a Mexican flag flying in place of Old Glory in front of the Navy ROTC building. They yanked it down and burned it.

This is an entirely natural and healthy reaction. When someone illegally comes onto your property and gives you a shove, you had better shove back, or it won't be your property for long.

Yes we do have some good things here. Some good people too. Especially the Democrats.

it doesn't take a rocket scientist to see what the real reason they were suspended for. twist or distort the story any way you like, but you also didn't post some facts, either. i expected nothing more from you.

once i first read the story, something didn't seem right about it. and when i read the actual article, it became obvious why they were thrown out of school.

hiding behind an american flag to express one's bigotry makes you less of an american than those who are not americans.

i rate your story an "F"...for failure.

The flags were taken to school for other reasons than being patriotic. I live next door to an Irish man. He flies his flag everyday. Should I go over an tell him to take it down. Classic Republican spin.
