Students said Francis tried to burn and cut the flag before dropping it on the floor as part of a lesson on the First Amendment. At least two students walked out of the classroom during the demonstration. 7 "I put the flag on...

    With all the recent late-August talk of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refusing to stand and salute to the National Anthem which caused a fierce debate on social media and the press, we all know that some folks in this country loves to burn the U.S. flag. Although it is constitutional, what would you do if someone near/in front of you burned the U.S. flag? I remember some communists burning the U.S. flag near a park in NYC last year. What would you do?

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Nearly every day, somewhere in the country, the Stars and Stripes was lowered to half-staff last year in one of the most significant official gestures of mourning and respect, an Associated Press analysis found. The centuries-old practice can be a visible, public answer to extraordinary loss, as when more than four dozen people were killed last month at a gay nightclub in Florida.

    In an address to the Knights of Columbus in Manhattan on October 12, 1915, President Teddy Roosevelt remarked: "There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all.” “This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a...

    MILWAUKEE – In a year when political tensions already are running high, a group of protesters is fueling the acrimony by showing up to political rallies and events with a large American flag – and stomping on it. The members of the self-described “F*** Your Flag Tour” most recently popped up at a Donald Trump rally Sunday in West Allis, Wis. They posted themselves next to the line of thousands of people waiting to get into the Republican presidential front-runner’s event at the local high school. They proceeded to lay the muddied flag on the ground and stand on it,...

Countless men and women have joined the US military and lost their lives to defend the principles that flag stands for. The American flag stands for the freedom and the liberty endorsed by our Founding Fathers. People should be allowed to fly it ANYWHERE! But in a neighborhood near Houston, Texas, this man (below) was told by his landlord at Lodge on El Dorado that the American flag had to be removed? Why? Because it might be offensive to practicing Muslims. He told a local...

    Since Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, the iconic visual of the American flag they left behind marked NASA’s success in going where no man had gone before, marking their arrival for future visitors to see. Since then, all space suits worn by Americans have been adorned with the American flag. However, NASA has been supporting a design that may replace the American flag during space travel. The new flag, called the International Flag of the Planet Earth, is expected to represent Earth as a whole, rather than segment only the United States. According to the...

Hundreds across the nation have signed the letter – including some U.C. Irvine professors, Campus Reform reported.

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...

    Rights: A Ninth Circuit Court ruling that students can't wear American flag T-shirts because they may offend Mexican students celebrating Cinco de Mayo is a ridiculous yet dangerous assault on the First Amendment. On Sept. 17, more than four years after Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., sent students home for wearing American flag t-shirts, an 11-judge Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled that it was the right choice, "tailored to avert violence and focused on student safety." The decision upheld the court's three-judge ruling in February that justified the school's actions based on tensions between Mexican...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials at a Northern California high school acted appropriately when they ordered students wearing American flag T-shirts to turn the garments inside out during the Mexican heritage celebration Cinco de Mayo, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the officials' concerns of racial violence outweighed students' freedom of expression rights. Administrators feared the American-flag shirts would enflame the passions of Latino students celebrating the Mexican holiday. Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had a history of problems between white and Latino students on...

    Desecration: A U.S. flag with the president's face replacing the field of stars resurfaces at the March on Washington's 50th anniversary, turning the symbol of freedom many have fought and died for into a campaign prop. It has been a while since President Obama accepted his first nomination among faux Greek columns in Denver in 2008. But judging from the reappearance of the "Obama flag" at a march celebrating Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech, the cult of personality that has risen around him has not been diminished or discouraged. That flag first appeared in March 2012...

    Since when is honoring Veterans Day with the display of the American flag disruptive? That's a question facing school officials at Denair (Calif.)

    Jihadist organizations, including Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, have infiltrated America and are carrying out successful influence operations directed at our government and media. Judging from the results, our media is both clueless and sympathetic to the Jihadists’ efforts and our government is so eaten up with political correctness that our elected officials seem powerless to do anything about what amount to enemy espionage and influence operations inside of the halls of power.
