    The Black Student Union at UC Irvine is calling for the university to dismantle its police force, which the student organization alleges has failed to address safety concerns for black students on campus. The group sent a letter to UCI administrators Monday demanding that the campus Police Department and any additional "paramilitary force presence" be abolished in three to six months.

    Two weeks ago, a group of students at the University of California at Irvine removed a U.S. flag from a common area of the student-government suite. Shortly afterwards, six undergraduate members of the Legislative Council of the Associated Students of UCI (ASUCI) passed a resolution banning the display of the flags of any nation in the office lobby. The resolution was authored by student Matthew Guevara of the School of Social Ecology. Among the reasons the legislative council objected to the American flag were: “The American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism.” “A common ideological understanding...

    As KCAL9’s Stacey Butler reports, vocal crowds gathered outside the student center at UCI on Tuesday evening. A student government meeting at UC Irvine scheduled for Tuesday evening was canceled due what school officials described as a violent threat. Officials would not specify the threat, but described it as a “viable threat of violence” that was serious enough to cancel the meeting, which was planned in response to a vote last week to ban the display of all flags before a higher student panel overturned it. The meeting this evening was to discuss overriding the veto, according to UCI spokeswoman...

    State Republican lawmakers said they will introduce a constitutional amendment that would prohibit state funded colleges and universities from banning the American flag on campuses, a move that comes a week after a student government council at UC Irvine banned the flag from being displayed in a school lobby. UC Irvine’s broader student government body vetoed the controversial measure on Saturday. But, Sen. Janet Nguyen and fellow Republicans said they will move forward with the constitutional amendment. Nguyen and her family fled Vietnam as refugees, which Reeder said made the issue of banning the American flag personal. “For her it’s...

    The anti-America brainwashing of the American education system reached some kind of apogee with the vote of the UC Irvine student council (the “Associated Students of the University of California”) to ban the American flag in its main lobby, on a vote of 6 yea, 4 nay, and 2 abstentions. That ban was overridden by the executive committee of the student council on a 4-1 vote, perhaps aware of the damage being done to the value of a degree from that school. Now, there is the beginning of blowback for the original majority from a group calling itself Americanstrong:

    Author’s note: Much of the material from this column was stolen from my friends Kaitlyn and Caleb over at Campus Reform (see www.CampusReform.org). I don’t apologize for the theft. It’s punishment for continuing to associate with people who post foodies on Facebook. I’ve often said that we should ban the rainbow flag from campus because it’s offensive to conservative Christians, orthodox Jews, and immoderate Muslims (read: Muslims). But I’m only kidding when I say it. I’m simply trying to poke fun at campus administrators who often claim they want to ban offensive speech without considering that much their own speech...

    IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) -- UC Irvine's student executive council vetoed Saturday a resolution passed by the school's student legislative body earlier this week that banned hanging a flag from any nation in the lobby area of student government offices. "We fundamentally disagree with the actions taken by ASUCI Legislative Council and their passage of R50-70 as counter to the ideals that allow us to operate as an autonomous student government organization with the freedoms of speech and expression associated with it.

Comments by President Barack Obama, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey, Marine Commandant Gen.
