    The principal should be fired.

    Good for the students and all who participated in the "protest".

    This was a great response to a liberal moron. It's time decent people stood up to these idiots.

    Get your red, white and blue panties unwadded and try reading the original story, before it's been processed by at least two layers of right-wing spin:

    http://www.goupstate.com/article/20140912/ARTICLES/140919853?Title=Woodruff-High-principal-says-flags-on-trucks-violated-school-policy&tc=ar

    Woodruff High School Principal Aaron Fulmer said he was simply enforcing long-standing district policy when he removed American flags from students' trucks on Thursday.

    Fulmer said he appreciates the students' patriotism and understands why they flew the flags on Sept. 11, when the nation remembered the deadliest terrorist attack on U.S. soil. But, while he acknowledges complaints he's received, he said he cannot discriminate in enforcing policy.

    The four students came to school on 9/11 with large American flags mounted on posts in their truck beds. Fulmer removed the flags from their trucks and returned them at the end of the school day.

    He said the students were not punished or scolded. He said he told them: “I'm not mad at you. We're not upset at you. I applaud your patriotism.” But rules are rules, and Fulmer explained the district's policy to the students.

    District 4 Superintendent Rallie Liston said the issue is not about the American flag. He said the students violated a rule against anything that creates a disturbance on campus or draws an “unusual amount of attention to oneself.” He said students can display the American flag on their vehicles, such as in the form of a sticker.

    Liston said asking the students to remove the flags was not about 9/11 and patriotism — he said all District 4 schools flew American flags at half-staff in remembrance of the day. Liston stressed that the students were not disciplined. “We all love America and support our country and our flag. We value our veterans, but we also understand that they fought for the First Amendment, and when we get into the First Amendment, we can't discriminate,” Liston said.

    (Hey, the superintendent supports the principal's actions! Sorry RWNJ's, no firings today.)

    If you don't like the district policy, blame the school board, not the principal. Or is that beyond your right wing knee-jerk abilities, Bill?

    "If you don't like the district policy, blame the school board,"

    OK. The school board should be fired and the rule changed to exempt flags from it.

    The principal should have had the balls to not enforce a rule that is that stupid.

    Yea, just like you would have the balls to disobey a directive from your employer. Big words, Bill.

    (So, you don't think the principal should be fired anymore? You wanted his head two posts ago.)

    People that fly US flags from their cars, especially really big ones in the back of their rig, are idiots.

    It's just a flag. There's nothing worse than overly patriotic people.

    The problem is that there are too many stupid rules invented by too many stupid liberals. Liberals think they need to control every aspect of people's thinking. God forbid anyone have an individual thought in this stupid liberal world we live in. Puke. I detest liberalism and everything it stands for, whatever that is.

    "Big words, Bill."

    So you follow every directive from your employer even if it makes NO sense or is beyond stupid?

    "So, you don't think the principal should be fired anymore?"

    Nah, fire the people that made that stupid rule. The principal is just a little wimp that wouldn't stand up for what is right.

    Conservatives are funny...They bitch when kids are "running wild," because "the liberals" did away with all of the rules, and then they bitch when "the liberals" enforce the rules that the Conservatives wanted in the first place. I'll bet a dollar to a donut that some Conservative bible-thumper went to a school board meeting and bitched about some "flamboyant" student, so the rules were adopted. Then they get pissed when they find out that the rules THEY wanted actually apply to them, as well. It's like what happened in OK with the Satanists. The RWNJ's didn't see that one coming, did they? :twisted:

    Dux, you smoking that funny stuff again?

    Conservatives would NEVER be the group that want to ban or limit the American flag being displayed.

    Here's more stupidity from both the school and the courts;
