NORM ‘n’ AL Note: Is this what you want your children to learn in school? Is this how you are raising them at home, to have no respect for the country they live in, or the flag that many, many thousands of brave Americans have bled and died to defend? These public school officials in California must hear from you! The court which allowed this violation of the US Constitution must also hear from you! Would you allow someone in your town to force you to take down your US flag because they think you are being “disrespectful”? “The land of the free and the home of the brave” is becoming stupid and oppressive. Oppression can be fixed; unfortunately, stupid cannot.
A public school has banned students from displaying the American flag.
Even worse, a federal appeals court just let this violation of free speech stand.
California school officials actually called the flag “incendiary and disrespectful.”
That’s absurd and an affront to the Constitution itself.
It overturns generations of free speech law that we’ve fought to protect.
Patriotic free speech must be protected. The flag should be cherished and respected, not banned.
If we don’t act now, this assault on free speech will continue nationwide. On 9/11, a South Carolina school banned flags from campus. This can’t stand.
We’re fighting back, preparing to file a critical amicus brief at the U.S. Supreme Court.
Our message is simple: banning the flag violates students’ free speech. This ban violates the Constitution.
Join us at the Supreme Court. Defend the American flag.
