Colorado High School Tells Student to Remove US Flag From TruckÖ Itís Offensive
Gateway Pundit ^ | 9-6-10 | Jim Hoft

Security officials told the student they focus on diversity at the school and they don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable.

A high school student in Northglenn is upset that campus security told him to remove the large American flags flying from his pickup truck because it might make others uncomfortable.

Jeremy Stoppel told 7NEWS he got a ticket at Northglenn High School last Thursday for squealing his tires. He said he deserved that ticket and deserved having his parking lot pass suspended for two weeks.

But he’s upset that campus security then told him he can’t fly his 3 feet by 5 feet flags in the bed of his pickup truck anymore.

“She said I should take my flags down. She said this is a school that focuses on diversity and she doesn’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable,” Stoppel said. “How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? That’s where I’m confused.”

I am beginning to think that all public schools are offensive.

Son... you go ahead and fly the flag. You have 1st Amendment rights. If they push you. Take it to court and sue the school.

Or my truck.

“Well, Ma’am, you’re making me feel uncomfortable by demanding I remove the flag of this country from my vehicle. Would it make you happier if I burned it?”

“......a school that focuses on diversity.....”

I’ve always pondered on their “diversity” when a lot of the students are moving on to “university” after high school.

But now the Universities are screaming diversity. It just dosen’t compute for me.

"Security officials told the student they focus on diversity at the school and they don’t want anyone to feel uncomfortable."

Ask the geniuses what "E pluribus unum" means.

Try putting on Obama flags for a day; see what they say. Then fly them upside-down on day 2.

I read this story yesterday. This is misleading....
The school did NOT tell the student that he couldn’t have the flags on his truck. It was a security guard who took it upon herself to tell the kid he shouldn’t fly the flags. The school officials, however, said that the security guard didn’t have the authority to tell the student that and they would speak with her. The school said they have flags all over the school and wouldn’t have a policy that didn’t allow the students to display a flag.

I think that these ‘Educated’ people need to have REMEDIAL ENGLISH taught to them. DIVERSITY in my dictionary gives the meaning as “the state of being diverse, variety” and “a range of different things”. Now mr/ms security myrmidon, how does flying the national emblem on a private vehicle violate this (questionable) goal?
