An elementary school in Colorado has come under criticism after they lowered the American flag and elevated a Saudi Arabian flag.
The principal at Bauder Elementary School in Fort Collins said they did not mean to disrespect the American flag, according to a report in the Greeley Gazzette.

Incredible, isn’t it?
Why the he$$ is any foreign flag flying anywhere near the U.S. Flag in a public school? City,county state flag maybe, but a foreign flag, especially of our enemy? WTF? Oh I forgot,the usual libtard, phony educationalist who sees the world as a community of all equally cultural and religious entities. Peace,love and submission.
Right, no disrespect. The idiot simply doesn’t know American flag protocol. Typical Liberal school administrator.
Political correctness is a fatal disease.
That's the PC wuss's mistake right there. Does he think every school in American should do that?
I lived in Saudi for six years and expected to see their flag. I wasn't put out not to see an American flag because it was their country. Living back in the USA I only expect to see their flag at the UN, consulates, and embassies. BTW, did you let your students know that where it can be flown in Saudi, the American flag is not very visible as to discourage terrorist attacks. Been that way there for decades.
When did this “read the articles” thing happen?
The Saudi flag IS the flag of the enemy, Islamic green with the words of shahada and a sword aimed at the infidels’ throat.
BTW, the Saudis go ballistic at Olympic events when their flag is handled like any other nation’s, when in fact they regard it as holy as the Koran itself.
Please to note my tagline.
I absolutely agree! More like it was done out of misplaced lib stupidity.
Was it an accident when the school in CA. flew the American flag upside down...BELOW the Mexican flag?
In any circumstance but public schools I might agree with you that it was an accident. Not so here, IMHO.
The idiot knows flag protocol.......they just don’t care. Don’t let them fool you.
ONE OTHER THING, THE AMERICAN FLAG IS NEVER EVER DIPPED TO HONOR OR SALUTE ANY OTHER FLAG..NEVER.
We need American pride restored. Let the foreign students learn to honor America for allowing them to be here, pretending to get an education at our public schools. Go home to respect other flags.
He most certainly did!
This so called "Educator" is educating his charges to disrespect American values. He MUST be fired!
If he doesn’t want to assimilate into the distinct American culture then Principal Brian Carpenter ought to consider going back home to Saudi Arabia. ... Oh, wait ....
Brian Carpenter..... Principal
The Ignorance of proper flag protocol seems almost willful, which is malicious as far as I’m concerned.
It was done with incompetence and shouldn’t be done period.
Couldn’t have said it better. Why should any other countries flags be flying on our school grounds anyway? After all it is not the UN building. Or the US Open tennis game.
USA, State and County only.
Here is another one to up your BP, it’s been going one for a few weeks now..NO Pre game prayer for Mississippi football players ‘over loud speakers’. You are poisoning young minds. sarc/
Mistake or not, why is any flag other than the American and Colorado flag displayed anyway? Maybe the libs there would enjoy adding a Gadsden for the real Americans who care about the future of the nation. Or the scouting flags. Or how about a Confederate flag for kids who have moved there from the south. Saudi flag? BS!
And where is the ACLU as the Islamic theocratic state of Saudi Arabia’s flag flies over an American school at ANY height?
It's clear that this Fort Collins school is onboard with the President's mission to cut America down to size.
Here is the question that needs to be answered. Why did the school feel a need to display the flags of foreign countries to make the students from those countries feel good about themselves? Those foreign students are probably attending that public school while their parents are paying little or no taxes to support that school. That should be enough.
This diversity bs for the sake of diversity is insanity, whether it is happening at school or in the work place. It serves no real or beneficial purpose.
I agree. This wouldn’t have happened back in the 50s and 60s when I was in school. IMHO. In those days, Americans were proud to be Americans.
Ask the school principal if he’d allow the flying of a christian flag.
I'm sure the School District did not
purchase the Saudi flag.
Who does it belong to ? Fire them !
