OPINION| Mark Sidney| When I first heard stories about people being told that they can not fly the American flag … in America, I thought that the report had to be a hoax.
I know the left comes up with some pretty silly things to be outraged about, but the flag of the nation they live in and claim to ‘love’ … this one I just do not get.
Apparently, this is the brave new world we live in.
People risk life and limb to get here, and then when they do they deride America, wave the flag of the nation they are fleeing and begin trying to turn the US in the exact same place they ran from in the first place. It’s maddening, and quite frankly, it is insanity defined.
As you well know Virginia has seemingly decided that it wants to be the poster child or test case, for the stripping of citizens of all their God given, Constitutionally enumerated, rights.
Governor Northam has presided over one of the biggest infringements of the Second Amendment in US history and his gang of Dems are only getting bolder.
Now it seems that a school in Virginia is traveling down the same road to tyranny as their principal reportedly told the school’s students that they were not to fly the Star Spangled Banner from their trucks on the way to school.
Apparently, the American flag is … ‘offensive’ … in America … to Americans, I suppose.
The Gateway Pundit explained:
‘So the Virginia high school students formed a caravan of vehicles with US flags when they drove to school the next day.’

When students at Franklin County High School in Virginia were told they could not fly the American flag from their trucks because it might be offensive – they did what any red-blooded American teenager would do: they flew the flag anyway.
The staff at ToddStarnes.com broke the story about this school in the area east of Roanoke and Christiansburg, where the flags displayed behind trucks have become a target for school administrators.
Earlier this week, an administrator at the Virginia school reportedly told several students that they could no longer fly Old Glory on their trucks because it was potentially “offensive” and “disruptive.”
Franklin County High School students showed up in unity on Tuesday displaying American flags on their vehicles after an administrator allegedly told them to remove them. Several local residents posted photos of the caravan driving through town with Old Glory waving in the breeze. Read More here.
What is the world coming to for crying out loud?
