CHICAGO (CBS) An Elgin school district board member has apologized to fellow board members, after creating a firestorm of criticism when she wrote on Facebook that the American flag means nothing more than toilet paper to me.
Last month, Elgin Area School District U-46 board member Traci ONeal Ellis wrote on Facebook wrote a Facebook post supporting NFL players who chose to kneel during the national anthem.
In her post, Ellis wrote the flag means nothing more than toilet paper to me. At the districts board meeting Monday night, she stood by her original comments, but apologized for the distraction her words caused.
I make no apologies for my comment about the flag. I made them as a private citizen, and taxpayer in this country, on my personal Facebook page, about a matter of import in the current national discourse, and based upon my personal lived experiences, she said. However, I could have been much more circumspect in my criticism and more elegant in my language. Please accept my apology for this.

She needs to be fired, then exiled to the racism-free utopia of her choice. If she can’t choose, one will be chosen for her, like, say, Sudan or Chad.
I’m so sick of this same sick scenario being played out with these loonie libs:
1. Make outrageous, vile comment
2. Get caught
3. Make lame-ass apology to hold disinterested media at bay
4. Learn nothing, go on with life
Lather, rinse, repeat
And people wonder why the public school system is hopelessly ruined.
Apology not accepted.
You’re a public official who made a statement on a public forum.
Or as your ilk loves to say “free speech doesn’t mean free from consequences”
And she was fired when?????
Why apologize to only the school board..because she will lose her job if she doesnt?
Liberals and their self doxxing on Facebook. So stupid for such an “enlightened” group of people.
Also, love her “I Stand Against Racism” profile backdrop. More or less code for anti white and anti conservative.
Where do these creeps come from?
The title says it all - she apologized for the uproar, not for her comments.
She said flat out, “I make no apologies for my comments about the flag.”
Thanks a lot, Obama.
It’s like she apologized for
the smell but not the farting.
Just another stupid kneegoer shaping the lives of students in that shithole School district in Elgin Il.
Just once I would like one of these fools to tell me exactly what they mean by racism. It is a dog whistle type of comment, sounds wonderful, sort of like Mom, Apple Pie, and I used to say the American Flag.
Also like the phrase “transparent” especially when used by someone who “Stands Against Racism”. Ask them exactly what they mean by transparent and you get either a deer in the headlights look or have them start sputtering and mouthing bile at you.
The picture of these pious fool being hugged by the attendees like she is the injured party, reminds me of all sorts of Alice in Wonderland comments. Red is Black and Black is Red.
Fire her ignorant *ss.
If she us a teacher, Goer is a scientist.
"Educated" and indoctrinated, surely, in the good ol' USA.
Today's snowflake students are tomorrow's elementary school teachers - and if that doesn't convince you to homeschool, I don't know what will!
Apology not accepted.
Oop, an iPad mistake.
Gore, not Goer.
So it’s - “Sorry, not sorry”.
I remember when people would get fired for saying such things (much less post them for the world to see). Then they’d still likely get their a$$ kicked by some POed American.
