Security officials told the student they focus on diversity at the school and they dont 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 hes upset that campus security then told him he cant 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 doesnt want anyone to feel uncomfortable, Stoppel said. How do you suppose anyone would feel uncomfortable in America with an American flag? Thats where Im 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.
They need some serious FReeping!
Great paintjobs. But they would probably tow your vehicles,WITH A TARP OVER THEM.
Ask the geniuses what "E pluribus unum" means.

I love it!! God Bless America my friend. God bless her.
Try putting on Obama flags for a day; see what they say. Then fly them upside-down on day 2.

BTW, just what in the world is going on out there in Co.? I have heard more than one crazy story like this coming out of that once great state.
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.
Response; How long is the type of conduct exhibited by the administration of this school be allowed to continue?
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?
It’s not in the school’s mission to ensure that people are comfortable. (Otherwise: I am comfortable only with $30 million cash in the bank; please make me comfortable.)
The guy should look for a good lawyer; make the school district pay for hiring people who stamp on others’ basic liberty.
Now let's not let those little things like "details" and "facts" get in the way of righteous indignation!
Now back to email-bombing the principal.
I’ve concluded that it IS the school’s perceived mission to make students comfortable — just as people placed under anesthesia are made comfortable before their brain is excised.
I would like the school district to lay out in court, in great detail, how it achieves its objective of comfort, which trumps the objectives of education and exposure to actual diversity in the world (e.g., people with flags on their cars).
That looks like Moochelle driving!
Now the MARXIST have come after the very flag men in uniform died carrying for over 200 years but would not let her fall if it was within their ability to do so. If it fell another man picked it up. In my youth any school board or school officials trying to stop a kid from doing this would have been removed from their position and publicly shamed.
Our nation is at war from within. It is a cultural war and the one for our very survival as a nation. The time for compromise in the name of diversity is over. Either a persons nationality and national loyalities are America first or they can get the hell out of the USA the same way they came in.
So . . . what’s flying on the school flagpole?
The principal of the school supported the student and said he had a right to fly the flags. She said she would speak with the security guy the next time he was scheduled in (Tuesday).
“Tolerance” and “diversity” are a brilliantly conceived stealth assault designed to destroy western democracies and Anglo-Saxon culture from within. This pathogen has now permeated almost every level of society. It is quite simply a virulent form of cultural suicide.
One of the more devastating aspects of this assault is that “tolerance” and “diversity” are now more important than common sense and self preservation. If you won’t defend yourself because of self imposed guilt, the battle is over before it has even started.
Western nations are in need of some serious deprogramming treatment from 60 plus years of brainwashing in “tolerance” and “diversity”. This mental illness has become so ingrained that reversal may no longer be possible.
Displaying the flag is offensive? Those who feel that it is should find another country to live in. And I mean that sincerely.
Please read post 18 and 28
You need to read post #18 before you go email bombing the principal or encouraging others to do so. Don’t let facts get in your way though if you don’t care about facts.
This “campus security” broad got it from somewhere. From other stories I have read she sounds too goofy to have come up with it on her own.
Yeah she probably got it from DU but that's not the principals fault.
Nope it's called dry runs actually. Enforce it policy or no and see if you can get away with it. No outrage? Then it becomes policy. It disturbs me such a moron could be hired to start with.
The American flag is flying on the school’s flagpole. Please read post #18.
Let’s remove Title I funds from the school as well. And all the other Titles. Wouldn’t want to offend them.
Screw em’, and sue em’. If that doesn’t work, leave em’.
I’ve always wanted to ask these “Don’t do X because it may offend a minority” types. Just what would happen when they are offended? Grow another head, assume the fetal position, change color (gasp!) or change form?
It would be interesting to hear their excuses.
I heard on the news (Fox & FRiends I think)that it was the security guard who told the kid he could not fly the flag.
A representative from the school said they did not have a policy that would restrict the boy from flying the flag.
Maybe we can email the Principle and tell her to fire the moron security guard, eh?
No bike? Slacker.
I’d mark off a spot on my ass where this security official and the rest of the pinhead school administration can kiss it. Tell ‘em to get bent and fly away!
I wonder if the security guard is Mexican?
Thanx. I hate when FReepers react to a story based on the headline
A lot of Caucasians from California moved there to escape the Hispanics and high taxes. They then decided to recreate California in the Rockies. Same thing the Massholes have done to New Hampshire.
Time to take a little trip up North and give those facists a little education!
If you are muslim, wiccan, tattooed pierced goth freak, homosexual, transgender, or messed-up in any way, we want you not to feel alienated. We will go out of our way to make you feel normal.
If you are Christian, patriotic, male, or an honor student , well, screw you!!
Tell campus security “This IS diversity jackass! There’s no sign of America anywhere else on this campus!”
