These Southern Teens Love to Fly Their Confederate Flags.- School Officials Are Ordering Them Down
The Blaze ^ | Apr. 9, 2014 | Dave Urbanski

In the small town of Waldron, Ark., — population 3,600, smack-dab in the middle of the Razorback State and surrounded by lakes and a mountain range — they love hunting and fishing and their Turkey Track Bluegrass Festival.

Some of the high school students also love to fly Confederate flags from their trucks, a tradition they say signifies they’re proud of their “heritage” and where they live.

But those reasons didn’t fly with the brass at Waldron High School, who see the flags as potentially offensive and have threatened to suspend three boys — and possibly hold them back from graduating — if they continue displaying them on their trucks in the school parking lot, according to KFSM-TV in Fort Smith, Ark.

Waldron was in our football conference when I was in high school.

It’s clear some left wing refugees from NY or CA or IL moved into Waldron and got a job at the school.

I know the area well and this isn’t the norm.

Marxists are deeply offended by free speech.

Or "gay" rainbow flags.

They would cheer it.

Ive got a pretty quick computer but screw Glenn Beck. There’s so much crap he throws up on his web page that you can’t get to the story.

They should try Rainbow flags and see what happens. Better yet, Confederate battle flags and Rainbow flags together. I’d like to see the fascists ban one flag and not the other.

Hey I fly the confederate flag in the Southern Portion of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. So do I have to take it down too. Just like Impeach Obama sign. As well as my Lincoln Freed the Slaves Obama enslaves the free sign too.

Hey I get results with the signs.

I do get special requests for the Flush Obama sign next to the toilet to be put back up in the front yard

Sue the offending Marxist, then toss them in jail for violating these boys rights.

There was nothing in the article that said why they were asked not to fly the flags. If someone was offended, then I say it it time for those who are offended by so much to be told to grow up or get counseling and stop trying to control everyone else’s lives. But then the Dems/socialists own the teachers and “educators’ (a term I use loosely) so it will never happen.

If it was me, I’d hoist the Gadsden.

(Actually, already did that here at the house....)

Yep that’s what they should do, especially since this is the actual CSA flag, anyway.

As a symbol of support for these boys, I will continue to fly the Stars & Bars here in Minnesota, on special occasions such as: Monday thru Fridays, and on weekends.

C’mon Blaze...get your geography right. The place is at the Western edge of AR, not “smack-dab” in the middle of the state.

So true. But the stars and bars are the stars and bars.

The ignorant school administration should look at the Arkansas flag and explain where those stars and bars came from.

They should all fly a muzzie flag, a Mexican flag, a gay flag and the Confederate flag. Then ask the principal which ones he will approve.

There used to be a little joint in Y City that made the best BBQ pulled pork sandwich I’ve ever eaten.

I agree, take the flags down, but hoist up the officials instead.

These Southern Teens need to exist so those of us of above average intelligence can mock them for celebrating a war where their ancestors got stomped like a Hindu in a roomful of Muslims.
