A California school has done a U-turn after it forced a student to remove an American flag attached to his bike, saying the Stars and Stripes could spur racial tensions on campus.

I’m not sue-happy by any means, but sometimes idiots like these school officials just NEED a good suing.
Just learned the precise details of this reversal.
The kid can only fly the US flag on his bike if it is flown below the Mexican and hammer and sickle flags. /s
the “party of the easily offended” use litigation to get their objectives done, so why not? I hope the kid graduates and brings a BIGGER flag onstage to piss off the mexicans.
*F* the complainers - and how many of them are illegal? Let them fly their Mexican flags - preferably in Mexico.
The American Flag on a bike owend by an American student attending an American school might cause racial tensions?
These people are IDIOTS.
This is America. If you have a problem with that PISS OFF....
ACLU will be on the case, right?
That was fast! The websites been crashed all day and the phone lines jammed.The school should have to agree to explain to all the parents why it IS ok to have OUR flag and not a foreign flag. If some of the students and parents don’t like it too bad. Just further proof if you put enough pressure on these commies they WILL back down
There’s been about 5-7 threads on this all day. And if even HALF of the pissed off FReepers were able to get through on the phone and by e-mail to the idiot principal....
I’m guessing he had heard plenty!
Cram PC down their throats and they will start backing down.
The right decision - at last - and only after the original idiotic decision banning the U.S. flag being displayed on a child’s bicycle was put in the national spotlight and the school officials, now embarrassed, were forced to cut the out-of-control PC crap.
Typical rats - thsy like to skulk around in the shadows and do their dirty work out of the sunlight.
These rats couldn’t take the exposure once their idiocy hit FOX News and the internet.
Why do these kinda things NEVER happen to me?
I would love the opportunity to take these idiots to court and sue them silly.
More like they need a little of this, make them think twice next time.
:-) Ahhh, life is good!
Geez, ya think? What was so tough about handling the situation like this new method the first time. Just another lazy so-called public servant looking for the easy way out first.
Heard the audio today, principle sounds like he doesn’t want any trouble with the Mexicans. Is this America?
Can't help but ponder that last part...
Mexicans want to fly their flag...let ‘em go back to Mexico. Once they cross the border it’s America dude.
I emailed the superintendent, but of course, no reply.
About damn time he came to his senses though.
What a great kid!
Thank you for doing your part with an e-mail.
Gotta milk the race hustle dry.
RACIAL TENSIONS????? Over OUR AMERICAN FLAG???? Whoever doesn’t like the flag doesn’t like this country so GET OUT...GO BACK TO YOUR STINKING COUNTRY!!
Ya won a big one, kiddo!! Good for you...you faced these RACIST BULLIES!
cuz American is a race now...
cowards didn’t have the contact section of their website online today (probably since it went viral). Must of got a good freeping from locals via other channels.
and only if those are flown below the cresent of islam
I called and left 2 Voicemails with my callback number, still waiting for that call back. Score 1 for the good guys!
It was a sad day in America when they outlawed tar and feathering.
The next time someone tells ya have to speak Spanish to get a job, tell them to F*** OFF.
That principal had better be careful. So many in California die in drive-by shootings. Just sayin!
“...further proof if you put enough pressure on these commies they WILL back down”
Right. We’re DONE not fighting back.
After their terminations
I don’t care if the “issue” is considered over....the POS should get a steady diet of emails for the next three weeks.
Let’s tie up their phone lines for another week......
Who were the kids that complained about the flag? Probably some flag waving kids from Mexico. It’s OK to wave the Mexican flag around but don’t wave no flag from the U.S.A.
I say cram it up their ass!
If I was that little boys dad I’d be very proud of him.
When are Americans going to stand up, get in their GD faces and say ENOUGH!
F*** the Superintendent, and F*** the Mexicans and their stinking Mexican flags and their stinking Cinco De Mayo bull s**t.
These people are the most disrespectful people on the planet as they do defecate by the millions on our laws, our borders, our rules, while disrespecting every single American in this country.
Uh...because it's our flag?
We had some free time, to spend, so we called every single telephone number for that district....Every one.
Not one of these government employee, Communist cowards had the balls to answer the phone.
But we left ALL of them nice polite messages.
This was broadcast nationally today on Rush’s show. That, in addition to the possible thousands of emails they received, convinced them to reverse course. A win for our team.
This is America. Because people complianed about another country’s flag being flown in an AMERICAN school they want to ban ours? And they think that helps racial tensions? LOL
Here’s what will help racial tensions. Honor our flag and our flag alone. Assimilate or leave.
“Racial” tensions? Most Mexicans are also caucasians (although many have a large dose of Native American blood) so you sure can’t call it “racial.”
It’s political, and we know what side the principal is on. The Hate America side.
The Mexican students were offended by this...
Who else in that school district is offended?
Demand answers...Shine the light on these traitorous rats...
We need more of that. Not kidding.
Actions need to have consequences.
Good for that little boy! He is a true American Hero!
