U.S. Flag Banned Amid Racial Tensions

AOL News

LONGMONT, Colo. (April 1) - Dozens of high school students protested a temporary school policy forbidding students from displaying the U.S. flag - as well as flags from other countries - amid racial tensions following immigration rallies.

Student Dustin Carlson told Denver station KCNC-TV that he was suspended for two days.

“I’m getting suspended for it and personally I think that’s uncalled for,” he said. “If this country means freedom, then why can’t we fly our own flag? It’s ridiculous.”

Thousands of high school students Friday in California, Texas, Nevada and other states protested the tough immigration laws proposed in the House. Some waved Mexican flags and carried signs saying “We are not criminals.”

    If they are not crinimals why don’t they get a Green card like all the other immigrants did in the past, its not hard to do , but I can see they rather break our laws and try to control this country with their illegal ways. This is America and in America we speak English and we Wave A Flag that is red ,white and blue. If the illegals can not follow Our laws then they are no use to us in here and we dont want no more people who thinks they are part of an ancient race that has died off many centuries ago.Follow our Laws or get the hell out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Why aren’t the demonstrations by illegal foreign nationals, waving
    Mexicans flags and stating “our land our rights, a violation of the Patriot
    Act?

    Section 2331 Title 18 and Section 802 is very specific regarding this
    type of action of Foreign Nationals and it is considered to be an Act of
    Terrorism and an Act of War. I am not kidding, just type in the
    section and title, and read for yourself, it is very clear.

    I now assume Gonzales is giving a complete amnesty free pass on this
    law as well. There’s a war comin’ boys, and it maybe time to join Davey
    and men at the Alamo.

    Forbidding anybody from waving or displaying the American flag in this country at anytime is treason.

    Treason: Betrayal of trust or faith: Violation of the allegiance owed to ones country;

    By not allowing the American flag to be flown, the school is aiding and abeting foreign nationals.
