Posted on 09/01/2013 8:34:31 PM PDT by chessplayer
As Kathleen Fox with The Paducah Sun reported, an art teacher at a Kentucky High School set up an exhibit where students were supposed to stand on an American flag while they wrote how they felt about it. Art teacher Shand Stamper at McCracken High School in Paducah set a music stand with paper to write on on top of the flag so that students could contemplate their feelings and then note them.
Michael Ceglinski, the principal, stated that Stamper had erred, and continued that the display had not received approval by the administrators or the school.

If someone stepped on a rainbow flag, that would be called a hate crime.
I want to stand on the 0bama flag!
Same curriculum, different icon.
Only in college, they tried to pass it off as an under-graduate lesson in critical thinking.
What's their excuse with high schoolers?
And a bonus question: is this evidence of a larger movement to manipulate the way our children see the world, or just an isolated coincidence?
How about the class standing on the art teacher and ask him to write how he feels about it.

Sorry-posted before I saw your “warning”.
Why is Rense bad?
How about they stomp on the Koran instead??
If it had been a Koran the teacher would not have been said to have “erred” but would be fired immediately with possible hate crimes charges following.
It happens in every school in one form or another. The kids are all brainwashed on purpose
It must be nice to be a liberal principal or superintendent, and let a teacher do the dirty work you cannot personally do, and then, if it goes badly, claim ignorance and publicly penalize the subordinate - but then back in your office share a drink with them and pat them on the back and say “i had to do that for the cameras”...
Is this acceptable?
Imagine—it was a large picture of MLK? (never happen) or a picture of Mohammed? (Never happen) or a picture of Obama? When the big war comes —and come it will-— all these folks will be come so patriotic.
Technically that would be “going Kersey”
Yes. Were you paying attention in March?
This is not an isolated incident. It's part of a coordinated school curriculum that they tried at the collegiate level, and are now pushing down to the high school level.
Does anybody see a pattern here? Initially acquiesce to public outrage, test the waters, back down and apologize, quietly reinstate the people involved, and then continue to allow the original behavior to continue when the outrage subsides.
That's how liberals do it. Republicans? They cower at their own shadows.
Bronson was Russian, he was a tough dude. In real life I don’t doubt for a second he’d be a hard ass if attacked.
And would you not agree more people understand exactly what I mean using “Bronson” instead of “Kersey”?
Same pattern dealing with the IRS abuses of conservative 527s.
On the first day of school every year there is a teacher at Nimitz High School in Irving TX who excoriates students who believe in Jesus. He asks those who are religious to raise their hands and then proceeds to tell them why they are wrong.
This is very common.
Why don’t try try stomp on mo-hammed or nobama?
The sad thing is that they were probably reading our debates on the matter, in order to improve their indoctrination.
If he was truly intending to lead a discussion on the personal value we place on symbols, he could have used something more neutral, such as a paper image of the American flag. He could have achieved the same classroom results by having the students stomp on, or burn, the image of the American flag.
Why doesn’t someone have a talk with him?
She wouldn’t tell me his name. She’s a teen, she falls for the propaganda.
I know what I’d leave on his desk and tell him THAT is MY “art”.
Teacher issued a very sincere apology. At being caught. No sanctions, just lots of publicity and a slap on wrist.
Lesson learned by her and other like-minded teachers, for the future, is to not get caught.
I wonder if anyone ever tells him, that if he has a problem with God, he needs to take it up with Him?
Today, you either conform or you are trampled on. When tyranny happens like this in history, it always ends in bloodshed.
I suggest the teacher move the experiment to the closest military base or VFW post and try again...
How about a few folks stand on her while she writes how it makes her feel...
“and to the republic for which it stands”
And that’s why this “exercise” is popping up all over.
Liberals screwing up the heads of young liberals in a liberal institution where liberal parents have expressly sent their liberal kids to have their heads thus screwed up.
Kinda like sharia approved muslim-on-muslim abuse. I kinda care, but I kinda don’t.
Now, if they want to bring that indoctrination into -my- personal space, my guide in diplomacy and tact would be Steven Seagal.
