How far does academic intelligentsia have to sink before people get sick of their leftwing politically-correct idiocy?
From The Daily Caller:
Dan Behm, a Michigan public school superintendent, is apologizing for a recent action taken by students that he claims promoted “exclusion, “hate,” “hostility and confusion.”
That act was waving giant American flags at a high school football game last Friday.
According to Michigan Capitol Confidential, Behm penned his apology letter — addressed to the entire district — after a parent complained about the allegedly disrespectful display.
“On Friday evening, September 9, during the football game between two wonderful schools, the actions of some and the inaction of others brought disrespect and confusion to many,” the letter reads. “Injecting partisan politics into a community football game and into a commemoration of the events of September 11th is inappropriate.”
Behm argued that the patriotic display was “inconsistent with proper etiquette” and was “disrespectful to all who have served our nation.”
Additionally, Behm claims that the flag in question — a “Betsy Ross” with 13 stars, symbolizing the original 13 colonies — was extra offensive.
“To wave a historical version of our flag, that to some symbolizes exclusion and hate, injects hostility and confusion to an event where no one intended to do so,” he explained.
The school district released an additional statement noting that the offending students will not be punished, but the situation “will be used as a teachable moment.”
What a fucking moron. Didn’t he witness the ‘injecting of partisan politics into a…football game’ when Kaepernick and other NFL assclowns decided to disrespect the national anthem?
I left this on the school district Facebook page:
To Daniel Behm: You think the Betsy Ross flag is offensive?? Are you nuts? You want ‘hate and hostility’? The muzzie terrorists who used planes as human-filled missiles and killed 3000 people in the name of their violent theocracy on 9/11, fit that description pal. I’m willing to bet the 50 stars and 13 stripes ‘offend’ you as well. That you’re in charge of educating the malleable minds of young students, is frightening. What’s next? Banning the pledge of allegiance and the national anthem? You’ve probably done that already. There is a concerted effort on the part of leftwing academic intelligentsia to wipe out any and all vestiges of patriotism or individuality. If American patriotism offends you that much, find a country more suited to your value system.
The page administrators will never let it be published, but that’s not surprising.
